Bleach Creator Pokes Fun at Hitsugaya Fans With Latest Update

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War's anime is now taking over the Fall season as fans get to see some of their favorite Soul Reapers in action again after all these years, and the original creator behind the series is poking fun at fans with a hilarious update for the 10th Division Captain Toshiro Hitsugaya! After waiting over a decade for the final arc of the manga to get an official anime adaptation, the anime is now making its way through the final arc where many of the series' biggest moments for each of the characters will finally make their debut in front of even more fans than ever.

Responding to fans about the current states of the characters following the end of the series (as spotted by WeywardWiz on Reddit), Bleach series creator Tite Kubo also shared an update on how Hitsugaya has been doing since then. But as revealed in a bit of trolling when asked whether or not Hitsugaya had grown from his previously canonical height of 133cm (about 4 feet 3 inches), Kubo responded that the prodigy Captain had indeed grown. It's not as much as you would think as he's now 134 cm tall (about 4 feet 4 inches).
