'BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War - Part 1' Limited Edition Blu-Ray Finally Released!

As we have written on more than one occasion, the BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War anime is slowly heating up for its third part, which is scheduled to air sometime this year, although a proper release window has not been provided. While we’re waiting, we’ve received news of an anniversary exhibition in Japan, which we have written about, as well as a new song by SennaRin, who authored the first OP of the BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War anime, “Reaper”. Now, while we’re waiting for more information, we can announce that the first Limited Edition Blu-Ray for the first part of the BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War anime is finally out!

The release of the Limited Edition home release of the BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War anime series was announced a while ago, with the release containing numerous extras, including some additional scenes that did not make it to the final cut of the anime’s TV release.

VIZ Media is releasing the Blu-Ray, which is also going to contain a special 72-page behind-the-scenes book, containing numerous illustrations and production details related to the series. The full list of things you will get with the Limited Edition discs includes:

  • 2-Disc Blu-ray Set, 13 Episodes, 16×9 HD 1080p, English and Japanese Stereo Audio, English Subtitles
  • SPECIAL FEATURES: 72-page Behind-the-Scenes Booklet, Ichigo Explains, Promotional Videos, Clean Opening and Endings, Trailers, BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War 2023 Anime Expo Panel Featuring Masakazu Morita

So, as you can see, the whole first cour is available in the best quality, as well in both languages. Alongside that, many exciting special features are available, as you can see. VIZ Media has described the edition as follows:

WAS IT ALL JUST A COINCIDENCE, OR WAS IT INEVITABLE? Ichigo Kurosaki gained the powers of a Soul Reaper through a chance encounter. As Substitute Soul Reaper, Ichigo became caught in the turmoil of the Soul Society, a place where deceased souls gather. But with help from his friends, Ichigo overcame every challenge to become even stronger. When new Soul Reapers and a new enemy appear in his hometown of Karakura, Ichigo jumps back into the battlefield with his Zanpakuto to help those in need. Meanwhile, the Soul Society is observing a sudden surge in the number of Hollows being destroyed in the World of the Living. They also receive separate reports of residents in the Rukon District having gone missing. Finally, the Seireitei, home of the Soul Reapers, come under attack by a group calling themselves the Wandenreich. Led by Yhwach, the father of all Quincies, the Wandenreich declare war against the Soul Reapers with the following message: “Five days from now, the Soul Society will be annihilated by the Wandenreich.”

The history and truth kept hidden by the Soul Reapers for a thousand long years are finally brought to light. All things must come to an end—as Ichigo Kurosaki’s final battle begins!

The edition is available for buying on numerous sites, including Amazon. The original price was set at $73.88, which is a bargain for such a special edition. This is all we wanted to share with you here. BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War – Part 3 is set to return later this year so be sure to keep following us for more information on the upcoming release of one of the greatest anime series ever.
