Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen may not release its episodes outside of Japan
Earlier this month we reported that an unconfirmed leak had surfaced, claiming that the distribution of the anime Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen (Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War) had remained in the hands of the platform Disney Plus of The Walt Disney Company. Although this first leak has not been confirmed, a second has emerged that now ensures that this anime will not be distributed as simulcast.
What is the simulcast? It refers to the fact that a series broadcast in Japan premieres new episodes on streaming platforms around the world on the same day (perhaps a few hours later). However, the fact that a series is “supposedly” going to drop on the platform Disney Plus or in Netflix It already has a pretty bad prognosis. Although the new series in Netflix they arrive either by groups of episodes or with a delay of two or three weeks, Disney Plus it’s even worse than that.
Recent examples include the series Summertime Render (Summer Time Rendering) Y Black Rock Shooter: Dawn Fallwhich aired during the season of Spring-2022 (April-June). Supposedly they will reach the catalog even with Spanish dubbing, but to date there is not a single episode of both series officially distributed outside of Japan, so fans have to resort to piracy sites with dubious translation subtitles. Finally the anime Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen It will open in October in Japan.
- Tomohisa Taguchi (Twin Star Exorcists, Kino’s Journey – The Beautiful World, Akudama Drive) replaces Noriyuki Abe in the direction of the project Studio Pierrotand is also in charge of writing and supervising the scripts in collaboration with Masaki Hiramatsu (Kara no Kyoukai, Minori Scramble!)
- Masashi Kudō (Naruto, Bleach, Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch) returns to handle character design and animation direction.
- Shirou Sagisu (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Black Bullet) is responsible for the composition of the soundtrack.
Synopsis for Bleach
Ichigo Kurosaki is an ordinary high school student, until his family is attacked by a Hollow, a corrupting spirit that seeks to devour human souls. It is then that he meets a Soul Reaper named Rukia Kuchiki, who is injured while she is protecting Ichigo’s family from the assailant. In order to save the family from him, Ichigo accepts Rukia’s offer to take her powers and as a result, becomes a Soul Reaper.
However, with Rukia unable to regain her own power, Ichigo is faced with the daunting task of hunting down the Hollows plaguing his city. However, he is not alone in his fight, as he is later joined by his friends: classmates Orihime Inoue, Yasutora Sado, and Uryuu Ishida, who have their own unique abilities. As Ichigo and his comrades adjust to their new responsibilities and support each other on and off the battlefield, the young Soul Reaper will soon discover that the Hollows are just the least of his problems.
