Lost in Translation
The North American anime distributor Viz Media has confirmed that the Adult Swim television network will run 52 more episodes of the Bleach supernatural fighting anime series. Adult Swim ran the first 52 episodes between 2006 and 2007, and its online schedule already confirmed that episode 53 would premiere in English on March 1. The next 52 episodes will complete the Soul Society Rescue story arc and, barring changes, launch the Bount story arcs that are unique to the anime version. (These Bount story arcs contain plotlines written specifically for the anime, as opposed to Kubotite's original manga.) The 158th episode will air in Japan on Wednesday.
