I’m watching the Bleach event LIVE as I write this. So I’m multi-tasking while listening and watching.
There’s a lot to unpack so I’m gonna break it down in a simple way for you.
Here it is:
1. Bleach Burn The Witch Manga – Shounen Jump (Summer 2020)
Burn The Witch Bleach Manga will start in summer 2020, in the weekly Shounen Jump. So put this in your schedule because it’s an official date.
More will be revealed down the line.
2. Bleach Burn The Witch Movie (Winter 2020)
Bleach burn the witch will have an animated movie in Winter 2020. So around December 2020 this year.
The movie is in the same universe of Bleach, but with different characters. Also – the division in Burn The Witch is the western division, based in London.
This is different to the original Bleach universe where the soul reaper division is based in the EAST. Which is referenced in the Manga and the anime if I’m not mistaken.
3. Bleach Illustration exhibition 2021 (unofficial date)
During the live Bleach event they also mentioned Bleach will have an official exhibition in 2021.
At the moment they don’t know what date, but they’re enthusiastic about making it happen sometime in 2021.
4. Official NEW Bleach logo
5. Thousand Year Blood Arc 2021
No official date yet, but the thousand year blood arc will be adapted and may start in 2021.
Here’s the full video with English translation (Bleach 20th anniversary update)
