I got some great news for anyone who is pumped for the return of Bleach. Despite the manga being finished a while back, there is still so much going on that not even the manga could contain. Revealed at Anime Expo, Tite Kubo revealed in a video that he will be involved with the anime project. According to Viz Media, Bleach creator Tite Kubo revealed that he he’ll be involved with Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War.
“I think it’s safe to say I’m involved in every step of the process,” Kubo began. “Usually, I’m not one for sticking my nose too far into other adaptations. It kind of feels like I’m taking jobs away from their side. But this time around, I think my involvement, my input will contribute to the fans’ enjoyment, so I’m helping out whenever possible. But the director [Tomohisa Taniguchi] and scenario writer [Masaki] Hiramatsu both have a deep understanding of the series. Thanks to them, my job has been incredibly smooth sailing.”

In short, while the anime is in works, Tite Kubo is hoping to add more content that wasn’t in the manga, but he will also want to make sure he let other people in the anime studio will still be involved.
The anime will be back on October of this year. How do you feel about Kubo involvement?
I didn’t see Yoruichi in there. I want Yoruichi!
Haha I want to see more of her in the anime. Maybe in the anime adaptation she’ll get to show off more in the fight.
I’ve definitely got really high hopes for this one. From all the interviews and such it sounds like it’s gonna be amazing!
Yeah me too. It sounds like they’re going to be very careful on this anime adaptation. We been waiting for years for this final arc to be animated.
It’s great to see that classic anime is making a comeback. Today the latest chapter of the Hunter x Hunter manga was released and fans seem to be happy. I think it really helps when the original creators have a hand in a revival. It keeps the integrity of the show. Thanks for sharing!
It’s cool to see the creators come back and give fans something to look forward too. It’s nice to see the author of HxH back and continuing the manga.
