In 2001 he was born Bleach, Tite Kubo’s second serialization attempt after the unsuccessful Zombie Powder. This shinigami story in a completely Japanese setting slowly conquered the audience of Weekly Shonen Jump. Few would have expected the global success that the series had in the following years.
As Tite Kubo turns 35, his story continues to remain the center of attention thanks to the upcoming anime of Bleach: Thousand Year War, which is once again bringing Ichigo Kurosaki and the other shinigami into the spotlight. This return was also marked by events and a cascade of information of various kinds.
Thanks to this we learn that Bleach has 130 million copies printed worldwide. Its circulation has grown a lot, with sales in every country from the USA to European countries via South America, obviously not forgetting Japan, with the home market remaining the most profitable. The 74 volumes of the manga therefore have an average of copies of approximately 1,750,000. Figures that very few manga can boast.
With the anime on the way, these numbers could increase and even inspire a new Kanzenban or Perfect Edition version of the series.
