Bleach, the masterpiece from Tite Kubo, will be returning after eight years, with season 17. The show will be adapted to an arc called the Thousand-Year Blood War arc, which could be the finale of the series.

Despite its huge popularity, “Bleach anime” got canceled in 2012. The series was canceled after the Fullbring arc but without a definitive conclusion. The manga continued to run with the final episode, which officially ended in August of 2016.

Aizen will be back and I’m eager to see Aizen again in the show. The charismatic villain has a few roles to fill and Yhwach has to be on guard for Aizen.

“Bleach” Season 17: Release Date

Bleach Season 17 of the series will be adapted to an adaptation of the Thousand-Year Blood War arc. The show is planned for release in 2021, as a component of Bleach’s 20th-anniversary project.

The next season is anticipated to feature about 50 episodes due to the fact that the next season is the longest ever in Bleach.

The show will begin episode 367, after which season 16 ended with episode 366.

The author, Tite Kubo reveals that the highly sought-after “Thousand-Year Blood War Arc” will not be subject to censorship. He also revealed that the show will air at midnight to allow viewers to witness pure Bleach’s highly eagerly anticipated new season.

Although the show was originally said to be coming out by 2021 no precise date for the release was announced by the series until today.

Key Visual

There isn’t a key image to Bleach season 17, however, there is a stunning illustration by Tite Kubo, manga creator himself.

The illustration depicts Ichigo in the middle with his sword emitting darkness and an equally vibrant background with characters in the background.

Plot/Storyline

Bleach season 17 is set to begin with the much-anticipated “Thousand Year Blood Battle.” The episode is part of the final arc of the manga, which begins with Chapter 480 and runs through Chapter 480 to 55-74.

In the wake of the sudden departure of Hollow, Ichigo chaos erupts. The secret group that is the Wanderich’s will launch their assault against the Soul Society resulting in an all-out conflict between the Shinigami and Quincy.

The Wandenreich meaning “The Invisible Empire,” is a secret organization of Quincy. It was a thousand years ago that the Quincy lost the war against the Shinigami and, in the aftermath, they escaped and set up an underground location.

They’ve been wasting their time and slowly building their forces in order to be victorious in the war they have lost.

The reason behind Hollow Ichigo’s disappearance can be attributed to the intense training he is required to go through. Thus, he has the ability to take on Wandenreich and help save his Soul Society.

New Characters

Together with the other characters from Bleach, the upcoming season will bring many new characters, however, Yhwach will be the one most notable of them all.

Yhwach

Yhwach was one of the villains in the entire season. He is known as the “Father of the Quincy” as well as the emperor of Wandenreich.

The Soul King’s son is named after him who is absorbed by the Soul King and gains the appearance of a dark eye mask over the top of his head.

Bleach Season 17 Episode The Count

The Bleach series has not seen a consistent number of episodes during the previous seasons. This is why it had the lowest number of episodes in season 11, which was seven episodes, and then there are 50 episodes in season 14.

Therefore, the next season’s episodes count will likely vary within these ranges. 

Should Bleach’s season 17 be able to adapt the entire arc that is approximately 218 chapters, then it could have at minimum 50 episodes.
