Taking into account the Japanese transmission blocks, Bleach Final Arc: Thousand Year Blood War is making its debut in the very first days of October 2022.

Kubo has commented recently that “The trailer for Bleach: Millennial War with Sagisu’s new song will be released soon. The trailer is beautiful, but the new song is really good, so wait for it”. Unfortunately, we still do not have any date. There is a silver lining with Bleach at the Anime Expo to be held in just two weeks in July and that could be the day when the trailer and other details might be revealed.

  1. I am excited for this anime because Bleach is my all time number one favorite. Please keep all of us Bleach fans informed. Don’t want to miss a single episode.

  2. Bleach Thousand Year Blood War in your dreams it will never be released as anime its just manga and never anime its same as Lineage 3 they created but there non. And that who created bleach, naruto now focused on boruto. yea i know we all waiting but let him finish with boruto its hard for him already in these times…

    • First of all, Tite Kubo did not create Naruto. Thats was Masashi Kishimoto. Secondly, I do not see a reason why they would not adapt it to anime after telling everyone they are going to release the new season. Stop being negative, and do research before posting a comment.
