Bleach has already made a big return earlier this year with the release of the anime series spin-off in Burn The Witch, so it's no surprise to see fan art and cosplay make a resurgence focusing on the world of Ichigo and the Soul Society and one fan has decided to take a unique interpretation of the protagonist of the Tite Kubo Shonen series! Though Ichigo himself did not appear in the Burn The Witch anime, he is set to return in the anime series that will finally give us the long awaited conclusion to the anime in the Thousand Year Blood War Arc.
Bleach as an anime was once one of the biggest Shonen franchises in the world, often being touted as one of the "Big Three" of Weekly Shonen Jump alongside the likes of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece and Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto. Unfortunately, the series hit rough times and waned in popularity, with the anime itself being cut short before it could tell the entire tale of Ichigo and his comrades. Luckily for us, the franchise is making a big come back in the world of anime, though an official sequel has yet to be announced.
Instagram Cosplayer Summerdru shared this unique take on Ichigo Kurosaki, the protagonist of Bleach who found his way navigating through a number of battles that pitted him against demonic supernatural creatures known as Hollows and members of the Soul Society:
