Thousand Year Blood War trailer brings iconic animated series to life
Fans were disappointed after the first round of Bleach was hastily concluded with the Fullbringer Arc in 2012. As creator Tite Kubo continued the manga series, fans patiently waited, hoping they could see their favorite animated âShinigamiâ (Soul Reaper) substitute again. It took almost ten years, but the Bleach the anime finally returns with what is widely considered to be the best arc in history with Bleach: Bloody Thousand Years War.
Back in the hands of Studio Pierrot, the house that brought life Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, and the original race of Bleach, the highly anticipated revival revealed the first trailer earlier today with a few key moments from the arc. You can watch it below, courtesy of VIZ Media.
Considering how different and more beautiful it is compared to the original version, fans are already losing their minds to this new trailer. Not to mention the remix version of Kurosaki Ichigo’s iconic theme song “Number One”.
Sadly, the studio couldn’t access this popular storyline with the show’s original run and had to hastily wrap up after the Fullbringer arc, where Ichigo regains his spiritual powers after losing them to his battle with Aizen. The relaunched race of Bleach will animate the Thousand Year Blood War arc, which finally sees the conclusion of the eternal rivalry between Shinigami and Quincies. The hype surrounding the upcoming anime edition is insane and considering how fans are gushing about the Thousand Year Blood War arc (for good reason), it could become one of the top rated anime of the next year. Pierrot seems to have done a great job in animating the series, as it is possibly even better than the last one.
Those familiar with the manga are familiar with the scenes already revealed in the trailer and know what the anime has in store for them. The coming arc answers many previously unanswered questions, especially the origin of Ichigo’s hollow powers. Thousand Year Blood War will introduce fans to a world of despair, as they know the main antagonist of the series: Almighty Yhwach.
On top of that, the arc also contains never-before-seen powers and shows the true strength of many characters (something fans have been begging to see animated since the manga revealed them). However, that is all resolved in the end, of course, with a helping hand from some unlikely “acquaintances”.
The expectation of this exciting renewal of Bleach is coming to an end, as it has been officially confirmed that the anime will air from October 2022.
Brie Larson may have finished principal photography on Wonders, but that doesn’t mean she’s given up on her routine just yet.
