Bleach Novel Series to End With 3rd Volume
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Writer Ryohgo Narita revealed on Sunday that his Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World novel series will end with the third volume. Nartia did not reveal the release date for the volume, but noted that he has written a total of more than 1,000 pages for all three volumes, and that his hospitalization slowed down his writing.
The novel series launched on both the Shonen Jump+ app and the official Bleach app in April 2017. The serialized novel went on hiatus in July 2017, and returned last December with the new title Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World II. The latest chapter debuted on Friday.
The first volume of the novel shipped in August 2016, and the second volume (seen right) is slated to ship on November 2.
Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World centers on Shūhei Hisagi. Shūhei must throw himself into a new fight as the mystery that Kaname Tōsen left behind resurfaces. The story reveals more details about the four noble families, the Soul King, Arrancar, and Fullbringers.
Narita (Baccano!, Durarara!) previously wrote the two-volume Bleach: Spirits Are Forever With You novel series, which Shueisha published in 2012.
Tite Kubo launched the Bleach manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2001, and ended it in August 2016. Viz Media published the manga in North America digitally in English as Shueisha published new chapters in Japan. Viz Media is also publishing the manga in print.
