The Weekly Shonen Jump N°51 published as planned a new illustration of Tite Kubo with the special poster of the first generation of the Gotei 13 (The Bloodthirsty 13) for the anime Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War. Surely those who fought the Quincys 1000 years ago.
It’s the first time we’ve seen them properly, because so far we’ve only had their silhouettes during Yamamoto’s flashback. We managed to distinguish Yamamoto and Unohana in chapter 511 of the manga (adapted next Monday in episode 7). So we discover new faces, some of the most killer captains of the Gotei 13, all of whom must be locked up in Hell right now because of their too great powers.
We manage to distinguish a Shihōin in the middle with matte skin and orange scarf. Probably an ancestor of Yoruichi. The others will perhaps know them in the rest of the 20th Anniversary Bleach Chapter: “No Breathes From Hell”

In addition a special interview between the mangaka Tite Kubothe anime director Tomohisa Taguchi and Masakazu Morita Ichigo’s seiyū will also be published in this magazine.
All this probably to celebrate the excellent start of the anime Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War which receives excellent reviews. And is often in top rated anime of the season.
L’episode 6 this Monday is acclaimed as the best episode of the series. And in episode 7 it is normally at this time that the 13 Sanguinaires will be seen.
