Good News for Bleach Fans – New Animated Series To Come

If you’ve been itching to learn more about the new Bleach anime, it sounds like we’ll be getting our first proper look soon. The official Twitter account for the anime adaptation of Tite Kubo’s Shonen Jump manga—which ran from 2001 to 2016—revealed that the first trailer and visual will be on display for the new TV anime at the Super Stage EX BLEACH event, which is scheduled to take the stage via live stream at Jump Festa 2022.

The event goes down on December 18 at 6:00pm Japan Time, so look for the results to arrive online sometime around then. In addition to the footage, the stream will feature appearances by Ichigo voice actor Masakazu Morita, Ruika VA Fumiko Orikasa, and Ishida VA Noriaki Sugiyama, as well as Weekly Shonen Jump editor and BURN THE WITCH producer Shu Murakoshi and comedian Yoshiyuki Hirai of comedy duo America Zarigani.

All of the Bleach manga is available through VIZ Media, and the anime is currently streaming via multiple outlets. Here’s how VIZ describes the first volume:

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 Soul Reaper 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 Soul Reaper 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 protect the innocent from Hollows and help the spirits themselves find peace.

Netflix Live Action Series Cowboy Bebop, a Review

UPDATE 12/09/2021: Not surprising, Netflix cancels Cowboy  Bebop, so no season 2.

It's been a decade or more since it was first announced that there would be a live-action Cowboy Bebop film.  Much speculation circulated around the web about famed actor Keanu Reeves in the role of Spike Spiegel, a former member of the criminal Red Dragon Syndicate, who left after faking his death to find the woman he loved by the name of Julia.

Well, the film did not pan out; however, fans of the popular Japanese neo-noir science fiction anime were glad to see that their wait was over when Netflix's  live action Cowboy Bebop debuted its first season on Friday, November 19, 2021. In the role of the motley crew of the spaceship Bebop, a converted interplanetary fishing trawler, is John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, and Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine. The character of Radical Ed (Edward in the anime) played by Eden Perkins unfortunately comes in the series at the end of season one, alluding to a second season.

However with the series lack luster retelling of the adventures of the crew aboard Bebop, it is clear that a second season hinges on the talents of the famed actors, especially John Cho, whose embodiment of Spike Spiegel down to his famed swagger, may or may not be enough to warrant a second season. 

True, many first season series and film debuts are viewed as “intro to or get to know the characters" pieces of work that follow, or as in Cowboy Bebop, loosely follow the original works they are based on, thus leaving room for more creative work and character development for future seasons or films. 

This being stated, and because there is the question as to whether Spike was badly injured or died in the anime series and now in the live action series, here's to a possible second season of Cowboy Bebop.
