posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 37th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that Ryohgo Narita, the author of the Durarara!! and Baccano! light novels, will write a novel based on Tite Kubo's Bleach manga. The announcement indicates that the main character of the novel will be Don Kanonji. The novel is part of the 10th anniversary celebration for Bleach.
Viz Media publishes the Bleach manga in North America and also releases the anime on DVD. Crunchyroll streams the anime as it airs in Japan, and Hulu, VizAnime, and ANN stream the anime afterwards. Yen Press licensed the manga version. Aniplex of America is releasing the Durarara!! anime on DVD and on the Adult Swim television network (after Crunchyroll streamed it during its initial Japanese broadcast), and Funimation released the Baccano! anime series.
