BLEACH is an award-winning manga that has sold over 130 million print copies since it debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump — of those sales, 2.7 million were within the United States. The series ran from 2001 to 2016 and features 74-volumes. The anime, which spanned 366 episodes and ran from 2004 until 2012, is still regarded as one of the best animes of all time.

“Through his visual genius, Tite Kubo has had an indelible impact on the fandom world and the course of manga and anime history. He is also a supremely gifted and accomplished storyteller, and it is a great honor for VIZ Media to acquire this final arc in his legendary catalogue BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War, for fans everywhere.”

Brad Woods, Chief Marketing Officer VIZ Media 

While Part 1 featured an opening theme song – “Scar” – by Tatsuya Kitani, Part 2 will feature an opening theme song, titled “Stars”, by w.o.d..

The synopsis for the series is as follows:

Was it all just a coincidence, or was it inevitable?

Ichigo Kurosaki gained the powers of a Soul Reaper through a chance encounter. As a Substitute Soul Reaper, Ichigo became caught in the turmoil of the Soul Society, a place where deceased
souls gather. But with help from his friends, Ichigo overcame every challenge to become even stronger.

When new Soul Reapers and a new enemy appear in his hometown of Karakura, Ichigo jumps back into the battlefield with his Zanpakuto to help those in need. Meanwhile, the Soul Society is observing a sudden surge in the number of Hollows being destroyed in the World of the Living. They also receive separate reports of residents in the Rukon District having gone missing. Finally, the Seireitei, home of the Soul Reapers, comes under attack by a group calling themselves the Wandenreich.                                                                  

Led by Yhwach, the father of all Quincies, the Wandenreich declare war against the Soul Reapers with the following message: “Five days from now, the Soul Society will be annihilated by the Wandenreich.”

The history and truth kept hidden by the Soul Reapers for a thousand long years is finally brought to light.

All things must come to an end—as Ichigo Kurosaki’s final battle begins! 

Fans in the United States can catch up on Part 1 now as the series is currently streaming on Hulu.
