The first cour of the Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War anime will end with its last two episodes — Episodes 12 and 13 — both airing on December 26 (effectively December 27 12:30 AM JST).

Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War premiered on October 10 (effectively October 11 at 12 AM JST) in Japan. Hulu and Ani-One Asia are streaming the show internationally. The anime is based on the final arc of the Shueisha-published manga by Tite Kubo, which features a powerful Quincy faction known as the Wandenreich and their leader Yhwach (Takayuki Sugou) as the antagonists.

The staff of the anime includes Tomohisa Taguchi (Akudama Drive) as director and series composer, Masashi Kudou (Bleach) as character designer, Yoshio Tanioka (Akudama Drive) as art director, Saori Gouda (Akudama Drive) as color designer, Kazuhiro Yamada (Akudama Drive) as photography director, and Shirou Sagisu (Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time) as music composer. Studio Pierrot is the animation production company.

Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War is the first Bleach anime since the previous 2004 to 2012 Bleach adaptation. The manga ran from 2001 to 2016 with 74 tankoubon volumes and received a special one-shot in 2021. 

Outside of the anime series, Bleach has also inspired anime movies, spin-offs, a live-action movie, and more. An anime movie adaptation of Kubo’s BURN THE WITCH manga, which takes place in the same universe as Bleach, was released in 2020.
