For the shonen fan, or anyone who loves some solid supernatural action, now is a great time to give them the gift of Bleach. The final collection of the original TV anime adaptation of Tite Kubo’s hit manga is now available on Blu-ray, collecting episodes 338-366 of the Noriyuki Abe-directed series, and it’s the perfect way to get ready for the new anime series, Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War, which is set to deliver a newly adapted arc in October 2022.

Check out a preview of the new anime from this past weekend’s Jump Festa 2022 event below, and prepare to catch up just in time with the help of Bleach Set 13.

If that’s not enough for you from the Bleach creator, you can also pick up Tite Kubo’s excellent BURN THE WITCH manga, which is set in the world of Bleach and follows a pair of witches named Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole who work for the western branch of the Soul Society in Reverse London.

There’s also plenty of amazing manga and other related reading material to stuff stockings with this year. For those who lean toward the culinary side of things, Sanji is here with some delectable delights in the One Piece: Pirate Recipes book. Eat like a king (of the pirates) and learn how to make all the best recipes that keep Luffy and the rest of the Straw Hats going strong on their long, battle-filled journey.
