The ‘Thousand-Year Blood War’ arc, the final arc of the ‘Bleach’ manga, is currently being animated by Studio Pierrot.
The first part of this arc debuted in October 2022 with 13 episodes, followed by the second part in July 2023. The arc is set to be released in four parts in total.
Based on the manga series of the same name by Tite Kubo, ‘Bleach’ was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from August 2001 to August 2016. Studio Pierrot adapted the manga into an anime series that aired from 2004 to 2012.
Viz Media describes the ‘Bleach’ manga series as follows:
Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn’t change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper and member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display psychic energy, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family; but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy. Now a full-fledged Soul Reaper himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits and, along with Rukia–who is slowly regaining her powers–it’s Ichigo’s job to protect the innocent from Hollows and help the spirits themselves find peace.
