The news we’ve all been waiting for! Whether you’re a sub or dub watcher we can all agree that Johnny Yong Bosch does a pretty good job at playing Ichigo. Now we finally have the date we can hear that wonderful man scream Bankai once more! Thanks to a Hulu press release over their November schedule we now know Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War premieres November 4th on Hulu.
We previously had confirmation of returning Dub cast members revealed to us by Viz Media, but this is the first hard date we’ve had for the premiere. No news on an international release for the dub. Internationally Disney Plus is streaming Bleach TYBW so we’ll just have to wait for news from the great mouse! If you need a quick catch-up, we’ve summed up everything we know about Bleach’s return here!
Confirmed returning dub cast members:
Johnny Yong Bosch as Ichigo Kurosaki
Michelle Ruff as Rukia Kuchiki
Derek Stephen Prince as Uryu Ishida
Stephanie Sheh as Orihime Inoue
Wally Wingert as Renji Abarai
Doug Erholtz as Kisuke Urahara
Let us know in the comments below, will you be switching to dub right away, waiting for a rewatch, or just sticking with the sub all the way?
About Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War:
The final arc in the Bleach series by Tite Kubo, the arc picks up where the anime previously ended. New soul reapers appear in Karakura town and Ichigo immediately jumps in to help. Soul Society is inspecting a surge of hollows being destroyed in the world of the living as well as residents of the Rukon district going missing.
This leads to a surprise invasion of the home of the soul reapers, Seireitei, by a group known as the Wandenreich. Led by Ywach, the father of all Quincies, the group declares war against the Soul Reapers giving them this message “Five days from now, the Soul Society will be annihilated by the Wandenreich”
This arc will have the Soul Reapers bringing up hidden truths and old history as the final battle for not only the Soul Reapers, but Ichigo Kurosaki begins!
