The year 2022 has been very interesting for anime fans, who have been able to discover many titles, especially since last October. And among the anime the most anticipated of the year, we could find novelties, like Blue Lock or chain saw manbut also the continuation of some classics of the genre, with in particular the recovery of a monument in the world of anime, appearing among the famous old Big 3, I obviously want to talk about Bleach and his new arc titled The Bloody Thousand Year War (Sennen Kessen-hen in OV). An anime that will soon be entitled to its first breakthus marking the end of his first partand which seems to reserve for the occasion a small surprise for fans of shinigami.
first break for anime
Among the many anime that fans have been able to contemplate this year, especially those that were released in october last, some will soon arrive at their end of the season. This is the case of season 1 of chain saw man and Spy x Familybut also from season 3 of Mob Psycho 100which will be entitled to their conclusion in December. But this month will also be synonymous with a break for other animewith for example season 6 of My Hero Academia which is coming to the end of its first part, as well as for Bleach.
Indeed, we already knew that the new anime Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War was going to be divided into four parts, and it seems that the first part is about to conclude in a few weeks. As reported ANN, fans then learned that the final episode, which will air on December 26, was going to be quite special. This last episode actually holds a surprise for the fans, since it should apparently compiled episodes 12 and 13, thus allowing to have an exceptional episode lasting nearly an hour.
“Return to your roots”, Ichigo Kurosaki.

anime Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War adapts the last narrative arc of the same name from Tite Kubo’s manga, thus covering volumes 55 to 74 of the original work. We thus find the direct sequel to the original series, retracing the new adventures of the famous substitute Shinigami, Ichigo Kurosaki. And after the airing of the tenth episode which took place earlier in the week, Aniplex shared a video succinctly retracing the events of the first ten episodes of the new animesince its broadcast last October.
As a reminder, this does not mean that the anime is over.. This is simply the end of the first part, which can then be perceived as a break. However, no official resumption date has yet been communicated. But we can hope that the 2022 edition of Jump Festa, which will be held at the end of this week, will tell us more about it.
