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.”
- Tite Kubo according to ComicBook.com
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?

Burn the Witch
Great news Bleach fans, I hope you guys are still fans of Tite Kubo’s amazing manga series Bleach. Today I woke up with some amazing news regarding this Shonen series. Put down your My Hero Academia show or put away your Demon Slayer manga because one of the big three is coming back.
It’s been years since the anime has ended, but it ended with a cliffhanger and we never got to see an animated version of the last arc, Thousand-Year Blood War. The anime ended in 2012, but the manga ended in 2016. Now, according to Twitter anime news A.I.R. (Anime Intelligence Research), they found a recent issue of Japanese Shonen Jump magazine with a transcript regarding Bleach. While translating it is been announced that long awaited finale of Bleach will finally get the anime adaptation treatment. To make things even more exciting, the Bleach spin-off one-shot manga Burn the Witch will also get an OVA anime adaption. Originally, this news was going to be announced on March 23rd at AnimeJapan2020 event, but due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the event has been cancelled and thr announcement will be made on March 20th, 8:45 PM.
If you want to read the one-shot, I will leave the link where you can read at Weekly Shonen Jump:
Bleach 20th Project
With anime like My Hero Academia, Dragon Ball and Boruto, I hope some of us didn’t forget Tite Kubo’s Bleach. It has been a while since we heard from the series. The anime ended in 2012 in a cliffhanger and the manga officially ended in 2016. After that we haven’t had much except for a one-shot manga of Burn the Witch, game updates in the mobile Bleach Brave Souls and the announcement of the novel series Bleach: Can’t Fear Your Own World. Today, Bleach might be making some come back based on some news today. According to Crunchyroll, there will be an announcement involving Tite Kubo at AnimeJapan2020 (a big anime event in Japan).
This announcement is called “Bleach 20th Anniversary Project and Tite Kubo New Work Presentation” and it is going to be held at the Blue Bird Stage on March 21st this year. A website has also been created and it is called Bleach: Face Again. So far, there hasn’t been any news or hints of what this project could be. What do you think it could be? An anime return? A new series taking place after Bleach? A video game? Or a live-action movie?
Better late than never I always say. If you have the anime fighting game Jump Force, you might have known about the announced DLC characters. Today two announced characters are to ready to be downloaded via season pass or individual purchases. Today, Madara Uchiha and Toshiro Hitsugaya are ready to join Jump Force. Madara is the antagonist in the series Naruto (in anime he is from Naruto Shippuden) and Toshiro is from Bleach. These characters are ready to join in PS4, X1 and PC on November 15th.
The last two characters is Law from One Piece and Grimmjow from Bleach and it’s unknown when are they are released.
11th Monthly Topic: “Failure”
One of the best ways we can learn is through failure. This month we will be talking about the failures of our favorite characters in pop culture media and what we can learn from them. We will also reflect on our own mistakes and failures and how those experiences have allowed us to grow as human beings.

Remember the Big 3, One Piece, Naruto and Bleach? Well guess what, they’re coming back with more adventures in novel format. Announced yesterday at the New York Comic Con, Viz Media announced that they are planning to release some novels based on the manga series One Piece, Naruto and Bleach.
Viz Media announced that that Tite Kubo’s series Bleach will be coming back in a novel that takes place after the events of The Thousand Year Blood War (also known as the final arc). You might have seen or heard of this part of the story in Bleach: Brave Souls, but if you haven’t been playing the game, you can experience Bleach again in Summer 2020. The novel is called Bleach: Can’t Fear Your Own World and the main character is not Ichigo Kurosaki, but instead it’s Squad 9 Lieutenant, Shuhei Hisagi.
You can read the main plot from the Brave Souls website.
Even though he is not in the story this time, he is still loved by the fans. One Piece will be getting a novel focusing on Luffy’s brother Portgas D. Ace. This light novel will be released on Summer 2020. So if ever wandered what was Ace doing while Luffy was having his misadventures, you can pick up this book and read his story.
Remember those Naruto novels that came out after the conclusion of the manga? Remember we had novels focusing on Kakashi, Shikamaru, Sasuke and even about Itachi’s life? Well, get ready for another one but this will be about Naruto and his family. This novel is called Naruto: Naruto’s Story – Family Day. Even Naruto is Hokage, it is not easy for him to get a day off and be with his family. This one also comes out in summer 2020.
“We are Venom!” This is a quote from Sony’s movie adaption of Marvel’s antihero Venom. I saw this movie and I have to admit, it was good movie and I would love to see a sequel or possibly have Venom crossover with Spider-Man. What makes Venom interesting is how the main character Eddie Brock is teamed up with an unknown creature unexpectedly and must learn to control. However, unlike most characters with super powers, Eddie gained these powers by accident and he struggles to control them and what’s worse is that Venom is a living creature with its own motives. In other words, Venom and Eddie has to work together in order to survive against enemies that wants them both dead.
This kind of relationship also exists in the world of anime and manga where characters receive a special power, but changes their lives differently. Some characters get rejected by society and some loses a part of their identity in order to live. In this post, I want to list my top five characters who gained powers but goes through hardships. Anime characters that obtained a power source without any characteristics like Deku from My Hero Academia will not be in this list since even though he does get the quirk One for All from All Might, the quirk is not a living creature. This list will focus on characters obtaining living, powerful beings and learning to cooperate with the hosts. I wasn’t sure how to properly title this post, so if you have any title suggestions for this post, comment down below. It’s been a while since I did a top post so excuse me for my rusty writing.
*There might be minor spoilers, but I will keep it to a minimum! This is not ranked! I am only listing from the top of my head. Also, I will be referring to the movie Venom more often. So if you are reading this and getting tired of me saying, “just like Venom or just like Eddie…”, get used to it!
