A synopsis And More Details
For those unfamiliar with Bleach, it tells the story of Ichigo Kurosaki, an orange-haired High schooler who finds a high source of spiritual energy one day that leads to a Shinigami, (Death God or in this case, Soul Reaper), Rukia Kuchiki. Through some desperate methods, Ichigo is turned to a substitute Shinigami by Rukia, giving Ichigo the duty to fight Hollows and other threats along the way.
The anime is to touch on the war between the Soul Reapers and Quincy. Our main protagonist Ichigo Kurosaki must help stop a new foe as an elite order of the Quincy known as the wandenreich, invades the Soul Society in Hueco Mondo to launch an attack. Ichigo’s new enemy will be the greatest threat he’s faced yet, and the anime plans to touch on his mysterious lineage as well.
The original anime ended before the Blood War arc from the manga could be adapted. Now fans will be excited for the anime’s comeback with all new content not seen to the anime-only fellas.
