Bleach is Getting Its Own Coca-Cola Flavor

Bleach is going to be making its highly anticipated return to screens with a new anime in just a week from the time of this writing, and the series is going all out for its big comeback with a new team up with Coca-Cola! The Fall 2022 anime schedule is stacked with some of the biggest new anime premieres of the year overall, and much of these are returning franchises coming back for new episodes. Of all of these big returns, the one at the top of the mountain is Bleach as it finally will be adapting the Thousand-Year Blood War arc from Tite Kubo's original manga series.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War will be premiering later this month, and to celebrate Coca-Cola has announced that they will be launching a new flavor in their Coca-Cola Creations line, "Soul Blast." This new flavor features new art of Ichigo Kurosaki on the can, and it really has fans wondering what this new flavor could taste like. Unfortunately, this seems like it will only be launching in Japan when Bleach hits screens on October 10th, but you can check out the special announcement for the new collab flavor below: 

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War will be premiering on October 10th, and the series will be streaming with Hulu in the United States (and Disney+ for international fans) alongside the new episodes hitting Japan. Bleach's official website previously revealed that Episode 1 of the new series is titled "The Blood Warfare," and it features Masashi Kudo as chief animation director, Cindy H. Yamauchi as animation director, and Tomohiso Taguchi wrote the screenplay. The series premiere is described as such:

"It is observed that Hollows are disappearing one after another in the real world, and the Soul Society and Technology Development Bureau is in an uproar. Meanwhile, in Karakura Town, two newly appointed shinigami named Ryunosuke Yumiki and Shino Madarame encounter a Hollow as soon as they arrive. Ichigo Kurosaki and his companions help the two who were helpless amidst the sudden attack. But two days later, a man wearing a mask appears before Ichigo and the others who interacted with Ryunosuke who has finally regained consciousness. And all the while, strange things are happening in the Soul Society."
