Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War has been in production for several years. The latest manga saga, which until now had never been adapted into anime, will find space on Japanese TVs and various streaming services around the world starting in the last months of 2022. For the occasion, also Tite Kubo participates in the project.
Obviously, the wait for the sequel is great and Tite Kubo himself wants to see certain scenes in the next anime. At the same time, however, the mangaka launches into some statements that also affect the manga or the first anime of the series. And it is precisely on the latter that this time he focused. Tite Kubo revealed what his favorite arc from the Bleach anime was.
“I think it’s called ‘Thirteen Brigades Invading Army Saga.’ I honestly didn’t have much hope for the original anime arcs, but that really surprised me. There were. some directorially fantastic sequences in that arc and I really appreciated it. “
This story arc is a filler that was included in the anime immediately after the defeat of Aizen and before the Fullbringer saga, which lasted from episodes 317 to 342. You expected the Tite Kubo’s choice fell on a fully filler bow by Bleach and not on an adaptation?
