When is the release date of BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War – The Separation?
BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War – The Separation is scheduled for July 2023 in Japan. As a reminder, the first part of this sequel to the animated adaptation of Bleach ended on December 27, with the first installment of thirteen episodes. Hence, it was the comeback for Ichigo Kurosaki’s adventures that was welcomed with open arms by the fans for whom he was known. On MyAnimeList, a community site dedicated to anime and manga news, this first section features a user rating of 9.13, a score calculated from the opinions of nearly 150,000 Internet users. While fans of Tite Kubo’s manga were looking forward to seeing the end of the work adapted on the small screen, they praised the quality of animation offered by studio Pierrot.
As for the first part, the rights to Disney+’s BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War in France. This caused controversy on the part of manga fans, because Mickey’s corporate streaming platform decided not to simulcast the anime. As a reminder, we call simulcast anime broadcasts that are (almost) simultaneous in our country with Japanese broadcasts. By deciding not to make Bleach episodes available at the same time as the Japanese archipelago, Disney has not specified when the show will be available to watch on its platforms in France. However, after fans expressed their displeasure, the sentence seems to have changed. While Tokyo Revengers season 2 would suffer the same fate, Disney+ has finally decided to release its episodes simultaneously with Japan. For this reason, fans hope the same thing happens for Bleach’s second core.
What is the story of BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War – The Separation?
BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War – The Separation adapts the ending to Tite Kubo’s previously unavailable manga as an anime. As the name suggests, this final arc takes us through a war that pitted Shinigami, spiritual beings who act as law enforcement officers, against Quincy, spiritually aware human warriors capable of waging war against spirits. The latter was led by a man named Juha who led a group of Quincy, named Vanden Reich, who had survived a fatal defeat inflicted on them by the Shinigami a thousand years ago. In revenge, these humans have once again declared war on their old enemy, with the goal of killing the Spirit King and replacing him once and for all. In all of this, we follow the adventures of Ichigo Kurasaki, a human with Shinigami powers, and his friends who must face this grave threat.
Who is the creative behind BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War – The Separation?
As for the first part, BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War – The Separation is produced by studio Pierrot. A choice that will surprise no one since the latter already took care of the first anime adaptation which was broadcast between 2004 and 2012. Apart from Bleach, Pierrot is a company well known in the animation world for having worked on many “anime rivers”. “, meaning with one episode every week for some anime. We think in the case of Naruto and its sequel Naruto Shippuden, but also recently Black Clover. However, the latter also adapts manga with fewer episodes, such as Tokyo Ghoul and its sequels. Finally, in terms of past production, we remember that Pierrot was behind the anime adaptations of Yuu Yuu Hakusho and Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO).
Who is the cast of BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War – The Separation?
Either for the first anime adaptation or the first part of these two, Bleach cast is still the same. In the main role of Ichigo Kurosaki, we find Morita Masakazu who also plays Seiya in Saint Seiya, Marco in One Piece or Xin in Kingdom. For Rukia Kuchiki, it was always Orikasa Fumiko who made it happen, she who has been found in the role of Riza Hawkeye in various adaptations of Full Metal Alchemist, but also as Shirley Fenette in Code Geass. Finally, to end this short review, note that Itou Kentarou (Choji in Naruto) has always voiced his voice for Renji Ibarai, as well as Matsuoka Yuki who remains Orihime Inoue and Sugiyama Noriaki (Sasuke in Naruto or Emiya Shirou in Fate) who never returns as Ishida Uryuu.

While the second cour is slated to broadcast this summer, we should be entitled to a total of four courses to adapt the entire ending of the manga. Needed to at least adapt the events of twenty volumes that have never before been seen on the small screen, Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War aims to copy everything that happened between volumes 55 and 74 of Tite Kubo. Because of this, we can expect the anime to continue airing until 2024, or even 2025.
