December's Bleach: Jigoku-Hen Film Overseen by Kubo
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website of the fourth Bleach anime film has launched on Monday with the movie's title and release date: Bleach: Jigoku-hen (Bleach: Hell Chapter) on December 4. According to the website, the Jigoku-Hen subtitle signifies that the story takes place in a place unvisited by Tite Kubo's original manga, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year. As Eiichiro Oda did with last December's One Piece Film Strong World, Kubo is personally overseeing the production of the new Bleach film.
Sales of advance passes bundled with nine exclusive double-sided character posters will start on July 13. The Naruto Shippūden: The Lost Tower anime film will open on July 31 with a trailer for Bleach: Jigoku-hen.
