New Bleach One-Shot Manga Coming from Tite Kubo

New Bleach One-Shot Manga Coming from Tite KuboTite Kubo, Bleach cosplayer extraordinaire (oh, and the creator of the darn thing), may have wrapped up Bleach back in 2016, but he’s never really left the world. His Burn the Witch is set in the same universe, and now he’s back with a Bleach one-shot. It’s set to run 73 pages and come out August 10 in Weekly Shonen Jump. It’ll celebrate the 20th anniversary of the manga, which started in 2001, and concerns a “certain ceremony.”

New Bleach! Tight!

Here’s how Viz describes old Bleach:

Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn’t change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a shinigami (spirt of death) and member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display psychic energy, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family, but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy.Now a full-fledged shinigami himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits, and along with Rukia, who is slowly regaining her powers, it’s Ichigo’s job to both protect the innocent from Hollows and to help the spirits themselves find peace.
