He has Naruto under his belt…

Yamashita Hiroyuki is said to have joined the Bleach production team. According to the revelations made on Twitter, the host will be responsible for a few episodes of the last arc. For mangakas, Yamashita Hiroyuki’s name is not unknown. It is to him that we owe some memorable animations on Naruto: Shippuden. Yamashita is the genius behind the duel between Kakashi and Obito during the Fourth Great Ninja War, the altercation between Konan and Tobi, or the battle between Madara and the Shinobi Alliance.

For the moment, neither the host nor Studio Pierrot, with whom he has excellent relations, has reacted to this information. However, it could turn out to be true. let’s remember that Tite Kubo promised fans that the last arc of Bleach would be rich in animations and fight scenes. Putting Yamashita Hiroyuki in charge of animations would only make sense.
