New Bleach Series Will Team Up With Top Anime Composers For The First Time
Ichigo Kurosaki and the Soul Society will return to the small screen in just a few weeks, while Bleach: Bloody Thousand Year War remains a major player in the fall anime season. With the return of the original Studio Pierrot animators for the return of the shonen franchise, it looks like two major composers in the anime industry are coming together for the first time to help Bleachthe new series.
The upcoming new season of Bleach will see anime legends Shiro Sagisu and Hiroyuki Sawano team up to help tell the story of the Bloody Thousand Year War arc, the original series finale of the Shonen franchise. While Tite Kubo would eventually return to write a new episode last year that saw Ichigo and Soul Society years after that arc’s conclusion, many anime fans thought the franchise would never return or hit the pages. manga or on the small screen. With Studio Pierrot returning to host the new season which will pit our favorite soul reapers against the terrifying power of the Quincies, the series will air simultaneously, helping to reassure many North American fans.
So what were Sagisu and Sawano responsible for in their past works? Specifically, anime fans may know Shiro Sagisu best for his work on series such as Berserkthe original Neon Genesis Evangelion series, shin godzillaand a handful of Bleach feature films. On the other hand, Hiroyuki Sawano has worked on some heavy hitters in anime, including Attack on Titan, The Seven Deadly Sins, Promare, Kill la Killand Mobile Suit: Unicorn Gundam to name a few. The crossover between these two titans in the world of anime music is a great sign for fans of Bleach.
Currently, there has been no confirmation that Bleach will return to Shonen Jump with new chapters in the future and/or if the anime will continue after the conclusion of the Thousand Year Blood War arc, although things are looking good for Soul fans Society.
