There is speculation that the final arc of the Bleach manga will receive an anime adaptation in celebration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary. These announcements were rumored to take place during the AnimeJapan 2020 convention before the event was canceled due to COVID-19.

As a result, Shonen Jump and Shueisha announced the event will take place as a livestream broadcast on March 21 via YouTube and Twitter. The “Thousand-Year Blood War” arc is the final arc to take place in the Bleach manga, however, it never received an adaptation within the anime series. The show instead abruptly ended in 2012, leaving fans to create several online petitions to have the final arc of the manga animated.

Bleach originally appeared in Shonen Jump in August 2001 to August 2016 and follows the adventures of teenager Ichigo Kurosaki, who inherits his parents’ destiny after he obtains the powers of a Soul Reaper.

Check the Bleach 20th Anniversary project livestream event March 21 at 8:45p EST on YouTube and Twitter.
