Crunchyroll announced that it will exclusively stream BURN THE WITCH, an upcoming anime adaptation of the Shonen Jump manga by Bleach’s author, Tite Kubo.
The anime is scheduled for 2 October in Japan while Crunchyroll announced early October for the worldwide excluding Asia stream.
The series takes place in the Bleach universe and backdropped in “Reverse London.”
Crunchyroll describes the show as:
Historically 72% of all the deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to the majority of the people.
While unknown to most, some people have been standing up to these dragons.
Only inhabitants of Reverse London who live in the hidden “reverse” side of London can see the dragons. Even then, only a selected few become qualified enough as witches or wizards to make direct contact with them.
The protagonists of the story are witch duo Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind (WB), an organization for dragon conservation and management. Their mission is to protect and manage the dragons within London on behalf of the people.
