After 366 episodes, four movies, and two parts of the Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War revival series, Ichigo and his crew face their most formidable challenge yet.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 3
An unusual alliance has arisen in the ongoing war between the Soul Society and the mighty Wandenreich. We’ve seen fierce battles over the course of 26 episodes, with heavy casualties on both sides. The Soul Society has lamented the loss of several of its most illustrious Captains.
Beloved characters have died and been resurrected throughout this fascinating story, while others have been sacrificed in the unrelenting chase of power. Notably, Uryu Ishida, a valued friend and comrade of Ichigo and his companions, betrayed them.
To call the series eventful would be an understatement, and there’s plenty more to look forward to. So, grab your Zanpakuto and get ready for a long voyage to the Soul King Palace as Digital Spy takes you through the excitement of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 3.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 3 is expected to air in spring 2024, following a pattern similar to the gap between Parts 1 and 2. Part 4 may arrive by late 2024 or early 2025. This could potentially mark the series’ conclusion on screen unless other adaptations are considered.
Regarding the cast, the regular Japanese and English voice actors are anticipated to return for Part 3. This includes key characters like Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki, and others.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 3 will continue adapting Tite Kubo’s manga, starting around chapter 612. The creative freedom allows for a more faithful adaptation, addressing past rushed content due to Kubo’s health.
Part 3 will delve into Squad 13 Captain Jūshirō Ukitake’s backstory and the Soul King’s true nature. Familiar faces like the Vizards, Yoruichi Shihouin, and Sōsuke Aizen will return with expanded roles and original scenes.
Expect action, stunning animation, power-ups, and revelations as the Soul Reapers aim to reclaim the Soul King Palace from Yhwach and save Uryu Ishida. A trailer is expected in early 2024, so in the meantime, explore other shonen anime or rewatch the original Bleach series.
