Bleach fans, get ready to wield your Zanpakuto once again! After years of waiting, the anime adaptation of Tite Kubo’s Bleach manga series returned last year with a proper adaptation of the final arc, and it left fans wanting more. Fortunately, the wait won’t be much longer, as Part 2 is slated to air in July 2023 as part of the Summer anime schedule.
To keep the hype fires burning bright, series creator Tite Kubo recently shared a cool new sketch of Ichigo Kurosaki, the series’ protagonist, before he heads into his biggest slate of battles yet.
The sketch appears to show Ichigo in his prior form, as he doesn’t show off his dual Zanpakuto (or lack of Zanpakuto as he becomes the blade). Fans are excited to see Ichigo in action again, and the sketch has only added to the anticipation for the new episodes. Check it out below:
