Jump revealed that Tite Kubo’s Bleach anime series ended in Japan in March 2012 but it will make a return with a new anime adaptation in 2021. Kubo sensei’s one-shot manga, Burn The Witch, is also getting an anime adaptation in Fall 2020.
The new Bleach anime adaptation will be based on the Thousand-Year Blood War arc. No further details were shared about the new Bleach anime.
Burn The Witch first appeared as a one-shot in Shonen Jump in July 2018. It revolves around two witches, named Noel Niihashi and Spangle Ninii, who work for the Western Branch of Soul Society in Reverse London. First, a new Burn The Witch serialization will begin this summer in Weekly Shonen Jump, followed by the anime adaptation in the form of a film in Fall 2020. Studio Colorido will handle the production.
The magazine lists Tatsuro Kawano as the director. Voice talent includes Yuina Yamada for Noel Niihashi and Asami Tano for Spangle Ninii.
Creator Tite Kubo said in a comment that he never expected to do a continuation for Burn The Witch. He did, however, consider doing it as a hobby and maybe let some of his family read it. However, his editor eventually convinced him into doing an anime adaptation. Kubo also mentioned that around the time we’re reading this message, he’ll probably be playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons and hopes to play with everybody.
