Bleach is getting ready for its full anime comeback with the final arc from the original manga, and the series creator behind it all is hyping up fans for the hugest battle coming in the Thousand-Year Blood War arc. With the original run of the anime coming to an end before the final arc of the series even started, fans have been asking to see the anime return for its final arc for quite some time. It's because the final arc has some of the biggest moments of the franchise overall as the biggest opponents go all out against one another. Much like fans, the creator behind the series has their own fights they want to see too.
Speaking about the upcoming Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War anime in a special interview with Viz Media during Anime Expo, original series creator Tite Kubo opened up about what he's looking forward to seeing in the anime adaptation of the manga's major arc. When asked about one of the major moments fans should look out for in particular, Kubo noted that the fight between Yhwach and Genryusai Yamamoto is going to be "amazing" considering all of the advancements that have been made for this new generation of the series.
"The battle between Yhwach and Genryusai [Yamamoto]," Kubo teased as for what fans should look forward to. "From what I've seen so far, I think that battle scene is going to look amazing. That's something everyone can look forward to..." But as Kubo also explained, there were fights that had to be cut out from the manga as well that he hopes to see make their way to the anime in the future. "[M]any battle scenes had to be cut from the manga. Ones featuring The Bambies, for example. I've actually been sending over lots of battle and design ideas for all the characters, so I think the studio will make good use of those ideas," as Kubo noted.
When talking about the design for the new episodes, Kubo praised the production as such, "The animation and color design of the Thousand-Year Blood War arc will be different from the previous series. I want the anime to use modern, contemporary coloring, so we've gone back and forth several times to figure it out," Kubo began. "Then offered how the rest of the experience will be fresh, "I think it's going to be a new and refreshing viewing experience. The scenario will be new, too."
