In Soraza-machi, Ryunosuke Gyoki and Shino Ikarame, the two new Shinigami in charge, run into Emptiness as soon as they arrive. When the attack came out of nowhere, the two couldn’t do anything to stop it. Acting Shinigami Ichigo Kurosaki and his friends saved them. The next day, a man in a mask shows up while Ichigo and his friends are talking to Ryunosuke, who has woken up. But in the Corpse Realm, something strange is happening…” – Bleach: The First Story of the Thousand-Year Blood War, from the official website.

Tomohisa Taguchi is in charge of making the episode 1 script and storyboard. Hikaru Murata is in charge of directing, Cindy H. Yamauchi is the animation director, and Masashi Kudo is the chief animation director.

Anime News Network says that the anime will have four slates, which are three-month seasons with breaks in between.

Update: Fans of Bleach should know that the first episode of the new anime has been leaked on social media. Anime Senpai said that the first episode was accidentally made available early on Disney Plus in New Zealand and Brazil.

Some users then shared the full episode online. WeGotThisCovered says that Disney has already taken down a lot of the links to the leaked episode. However, fans should be aware that spoilers are all over social media this morning, so don’t look too much into the new episode before it airs.

Who Performs the New Opening and Closing Themes?

The new opening theme song for Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War will be called “Scar,” and Tatsuya Kitani will sing it.

“As a fan of “BLEACH,” I wrote the music I wanted to hear in the last chapter. I wrote the music as if I were going back to my roots and looking back at the path I’ve taken, and I sent the rest as if I were praying. I’m very happy that Mr. Kubo and everyone who worked on the anime chose this song and that it will be in “Sennen Kessen Hen.” I can say without hesitation, “I’m really glad to be alive…” As a fan, all I can do now is wait for the broadcast. – Tatsuya Kitani, via Comic Natalie.

SennaRin sings the new ending theme song, which is called “Saihate” and means something like “The Farthest Reaches.”

“When I heard that the theme song had been chosen, I was happy, but I didn’t believe it right away and didn’t really feel it. I was very happy to hear that I would be singing the theme song, but I didn’t believe it at first. It was a coincidence that the serialization of “BLEACH” started the same year I was born and that the movie version of the anime had a character with the same name as me, Akane Shizuku. I feel like it was fate that I could be involved with “BLEACH” in this way. – SennaRin, via Comic Natalie.

As we’ve already said, there are rumors that the anime will come out in four separate courses. This could mean that there will be up to four new opening and closing theme songs.
