Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Coming To Star Plus In Latin America: The Star Plus platform announced that the Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War anime will reach its catalog in Latin America on February 22, more than four months after its official premiere in Japan. It should be noted that the series has already finished broadcasting its first part with a total of thirteen episodes, so bringing it officially months later is easily one of the worst market decisions regarding anime distribution.

Given the importance of the series, thousands of fans of the franchise have probably already seen it through unofficial sites, and there was no legal option to consume the series since Hulu was in charge of simulcasting it in the United States. In fact, it’s not even the first time that The Walt Disney Company has done a lousy distribution of anime since it had already ruined the distribution of series like Summertime Render and Black Rock Shooter: Dawn Fall.
The first part of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War had a total of thirteen episodes, but it is also confirmed that everything that remains of the original manga will be adapted. For his part, Tite Kubo published the original manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine between August 2001 and August 2016, compiling the work in a total of 74 volumes.
- Tomohisa Taguchi ( Twin Star Exorcists, Kino’s Journey – The Beautiful World, Akudama Drive ) replaces Noriyuki Abe as project director at Studio Pierrot and is also writing and supervising the collaborative scripts with Masaki Hiramatsu ( Kara no Kyoukai, Minori Scramble! )
- Masashi Kudou ( Naruto, Bleach, Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch ) is returning to handle character design and animation direction.
- Shirou Sagisu ( Neon Genesis Evangelion, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Black Bullet ) is composing the soundtrack.
Synopsis for Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War
Ichigo Kurosaki is an ordinary high school student until his family is attacked by a Hollow, a corrupted spirit that seeks to devour human souls. It is then that he meets a Soul Reaper named Rukia Kuchiki, who is injured while she is protecting Ichigo’s family from the assailant. In order to save the family from him, Ichigo accepts Rukia’s offer to take her powers, becoming a Soul Reaper as a result.
However, with Rukia unable to regain her own power, Ichigo is faced with the daunting task of hunting down the Hollows plaguing his town. However, he is not alone in his fight, as he is later joined by his friends: classmates Orihime Inoue, Yasutora Sado, and Uryuu Ishida, who have their own unique abilities. As Ichigo and his comrades grow accustomed to their new responsibilities and support each other on and off the battlefield, the young Soul Reaper soon discovers that the Hollows are hardly the least of his problems.
