Bleach fans have been eagerly awaiting the 20th Anniversary special livestream as reports had gone up over the week about a potential return for the anime and new projects based on Tite Kubo's follow up one-shot, Burn the Witch. With the livestream debuting on March 20th, these reports were awesomely confirmed not only with the announcement that Burn the Witch's one-shot would be continuing with a full series from Kubo but it will be getting an animated feature film as well. During the special presentation, it was confirmed that the Burn the Witch film would be heading our way sometime this year.
Confirming that it's on the way with the first trailer for the new film, Burn the Witch has certainly gotten fans excited over its anime debut. Not only is it the full adaptation of Kubo's work since the Bleach anime went off the air eight years ago, but it's got a lot of promise on its own as an extension of the Bleach universe.
Taking place 12 years after the Thousand-Year Blood War arc of the Bleach series, Burn the Witch is set in the Western Branch of the Soul Society and follows a magical side of that world full of witches and dragons in Reverse London. With a full series on the way, who knows where this new film will lead? Read on to find out what fans are saying about Burn the Witch's upcoming anime film debut and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
