So it’s no surprise that fans are hyped for this long-awaited adaptation. But now, some concerning news has popped up regarding the streaming rights for the show. Surprisingly Disney+ has acquired the rights to stream it. Let’s talk more about this in the next section.

Bleach Thousand Year Blood War on Disney+

As reported by popular leaker Sugoi LITE (OECUF), the streaming license for the upcoming anime has been bought by Disney+. This is causing some concern among fans as the platform is known for not handling anime and censorship very well. And for a show like Bleach, this will be quite a blow. But this is still just a rumor, and Disney themselves has not said anything, so take this with a grain of salt.

Now there’s no point in fretting about what’s to come, so how about we enjoy some currently airing anime? “Call of the Night” is a super fun and unique rom-com that’s one of the top anime of this season. If you’re interested, check out our guide on Call Of The Night Episode 7 right here.

What is Bleach Thousand Year Blood War anime about?

The anime “Bleach” is about Ichigo Kurasaki, a boy who can see ghosts. But instead of fearing these spirits, he always tries to help them in some way. One day his family is attacked by malevolent spirits known as hollows. So he takes up the power of Rukia, a soul reaper, and becomes one himself.

And so we see Ichigo, the Shinigami battle hollows, Shinigamis, and other powerful beings in 300 episodes of peak Shonen anime. But just after the penultimate arc, the show ended in 2012 and left fans heartbroken everywhere. Now it’s finally back, and we will finally get to see how the story of Ichigo and Bleach comes to a close in its climactic final arc.

Bleach Thousand Year Blood War anime release date

The popular Shonen anime is set to return in October 2022 with no specific release date. Although we thought that it would be available on Crunchyroll, it looks like Disney is also looking to grab it. So we will have to wait and see which streaming service gets to host this anime.
