Bleach had a splendid run during its anime life. However, it doesn’t prevent the anime to have a very disappointing ending. There was an upset for fans who watched the anime ending. However, the manga ended with the “Quincy Blood War” and wrapped up the series successfully. For many years, fans are waiting for this final arc to be animated, to no avail. Impatient, a YouTube channel released a video that shows animated snippets of the final arc and it is looking as smooth as melted butter.
The anime world has a lot of talented people working on fan arts and other projects related to their favorite anime. Since animating the last arc of Bleach manga seem to be impossible, one fan of the series, Retro Ryno, decided to just animate the arc itself. The animation is still in its early stage of development, but we can see that his works are fluid enough even with minor details and frames.
The demo video managed to capture the feels of the original series. Things are even more detailed compared to, let’s say. Black Clover animation even though most of the video was rendered in black and white. Close up shots were also good, well, compared to Gauche and Finral’s facial expression in the last episode of Black Clover (no hate for the series).
Retro Ryno encourages those interested to support their Patreon for his team to be able to continue with this project. So far, the demo video was applauded by Bleachfans and is the team received praises for their work. Only time will tell if this project will become a full pledged animated show.
Bleach fans can also check the Live-Action Movie which looks better and better with every trailer released. Confirmed characters who will be appearing in the film are Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki, Byakuya, Uryu Ishida, Renji Abarai, Orihime Inoue, Chad Yasutora, Isshin Kurosaki, Masaki Kurosaki, and Keisuke Urahara. The release date would be on July 20, 2018.
