The Unexpected Place Where You Can Stream Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Online

"Bleach" is a pretty seminal series as far as modern anime go. Running for eight years, from 2004 to 2012, the show boasted over 300 episodes before it finally came to a close. However, as it turns out, the series is coming back to tell one final story more than 10 years after airing its last episode with the new arc, "Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War."

"Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War" will be retelling the final arc from the manga of the same name by Tite Kubo. While the initial series focused on Ichigo Kurosaki and his classmates as they came to terms with their burgeoning supernatural powers, the newest story will see the Soul Reapers of "Bleach" doing battle with the Wandenreich, a sinister group who warns that they will wipe out Soul Society for good. While episodes of "Bleach" have been previously available on Crunchyroll, fans looking to watch the final arc of the series in "Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War" will have to go to a different streaming service to do so.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War will be on Hulu and Disney+

"Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War" will be simulcast from Japan on Hulu on October 10 at 8:30 a.m. PT, as announced by North American publisher Viz Media via Twitter, and will also air thereafter on Disney+ (via Polygon). The series will be animated by Studio Pierrot, the same studio behind the original run of the series. So far, the hype from fans for the show's return seems to be pretty much through the roof.

Comments from fans below the trailer for "Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War" have been brimming with excitement. "A moment of silence for our beloved Bleach fans that couldn't make it here today to witness greatness comeback. I hope and pray we all live to see the rest of Bleach," read the top comment.

"This series returning back shall be one of the best comebacks of anime history. So super hyped for it, after this many years, especially the fit between music and the final where Byakuya tells Ichigo to save the Soul Society," read another popular comment. Well, with these kinds of expectations for the final arc of "Bleach," let's hope that the anime adaptation of "Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War" can live up to them.
