Bleach may have been M.I.A. this past decade, but the Soul Society is making up for its absence at last. After a long wait, Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War has gone live, and its first two episodes are noting short of impressive. Of course, the same can be said for the anime's opening and endings as expected as the pair were finally released in full.
As you can see below, the two reels were released today and screened for the first time. The opening is gorgeous and filled with spoilers that manga readers will pick up with ease. Tatsuya Kitani was asked to oversee the opening's track, and "Scar" suits the series perfectly. The ending ended up asking Senna Rin to do its track, so you can listen to "Extreme" right now.
What to Know About Bleach
If you are caught up with Bleach's new anime, you will have seen these reels already, and fans admit both clips live up to their expectations. Obviously, that tracks considering the work that went into Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War. Studio Pierrot has spent at least five years on the series, and all of its episodes to date demonstrate as much with their top-notch quality.
If you need to catch up on Bleach, the anime is streaming stateside on Hulu exclusively while Disney+ oversees the show internationally. You can also read up on the series' official synopsis below:
"Ichigo Kurosaki never asked for the ability to see ghosts-he was born with the gift. When his family is attacked by a Hollow-a malevolent lost soul-Ichigo becomes a Soul Reaper, dedicating his life to protecting the innocent and helping the tortured spirits themselves find peace."
