While Bleach‘s anime became one of the most popular of all time during its run and right up to its end in 2014, it never did end up catching up to the serialization of the manga, which ended in 2016. Following the manga’s end with the Thousand-Year Blood War, fans were left having to hope that an anime series would come at some point, but now they can be happy knowing it’ll be here soon.
