Anime Expo saw quite a few anime franchises releasing new information to fans when it comes to their respective returns, with the likes of Mob Psycho 100, Trigun, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean, and more. One of the most anticipated series also revealed some major new info on Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War, with a major voice actor from the original English Dub confirming that they will be returning with the big Shonen comeback that will see the Soul Society on the small screen once again.
The Thousand-Year Blood War Arc was the last major arc of the series created by mangaka Tite Kubo, seeing the Soul Society taking on the Quincy family. Shockingly, Bleach recently returned with Kubo releasing a new chapter that took place many years following the end of this arc, hinting at a brand new threat for Ichigo and his friends, with many members of the Soul Society now having families to look after. As it stands, Kubo has been tight-lipped when it comes to the idea of Bleach officially returning to the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump to continue its sword-clashing series, though it definitely wouldn't be a surprise thanks to fan interest re-emerging.
Michelle Ruff, the original English voice for Rukia, made the announcement that she will be returning to the role for Bleach: Thousand Year-Blood War, leaving the question now open when it comes to what other voice actors from the original episodes will be making a comeback for this Shonen return:
The main character of Bleach, Johnny Yong Bosch, might have some big roles ahead of him, not just when it comes to the return of the Soul Society, but also with another one of his major characters slated to return in Vash the Stampede in Trigun: Stampede. With the Soul Society itself having quite a few swordsmen in its roster, to say nothing of the other supporting characters and villains that make up the epic Shonen series, we wouldn't be surprised if we see some other familiar faces making a comeback to Tite Kubo's universe.
