The first episode of BLEACH is leaked: Sennen Kessen-hen and there are already claims against Disney Plus
In recent hours, through the social network Twitter it was announced that the first episode of the anime Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen (Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War), long-awaited continuation of the successful franchise, was leaked thanks to fans from New Zealand and Brazil, who recorded the episode from the platform Disney Plus of those countries.
Thanks to this leak, we know that the series will have subtitles in Latin Spanish, English and Portuguese. It also transpires that the first episode lasts just over 24 minutes, that neither the opening nor the ending has been shown and that the last 4 minutes are a compilation of commemorative videos from all previous seasons.
Faced with this situation, the faithful followers of the franchise from the rest of the world expressed their disagreement because the platform will not have a completely simultaneous premiere since in some regions (except Japan) it will be released much earlier and this will only encourage several see the series by unofficial means since the leaks are more aggressive than usual on social networks.
It is worth mentioning that the series will officially premiere tomorrow on television stations in Japan and the simulcast of Disney Plus and Hulu will probably also be enabled for the rest of the countries.
Tite Kubo published the original manga in the magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump from the publisher Shueisha between August 2001 and August 2016, compiling the work in a total of 74 volumes. The work inspired an anime adaptation produced by the studios Pierrotunder the direction of Noriyuki Abebroadcast between October 2004 and March 2012, with a total of 366 episodes.
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.
