Substitute Soul Reaper Ichigo Kurosaki spends his days fighting against Hollows, dangerous evil spirits that threaten Karakura Town. Ichigo carries out his quest with his closest allies: Orihime Inoue, his childhood friend with a talent for healing; Yasutora Sado, his high school classmate with superhuman strength; and Uryuu Ishida, Ichigo's Quincy rival.

Ichigo's vigilante routine is disrupted by the sudden appearance of Asguiaro Ebern, a dangerous Arrancar who heralds the return of Yhwach, an ancient Quincy king. Yhwach seeks to reignite the historic blood feud between Soul Reaper and Quincy, and he sets his sights on erasing both the human world and the Soul Society for good.

Yhwach launches a two-pronged invasion into both the Soul Society and Hueco Mundo, the home of Hollows and Arrancar. In retaliation, Ichigo and his friends must fight alongside old allies and enemies alike to end Yhwach's campaign of carnage before the world itself comes to an end.

In 2012, Bleach ended its long anime-run without adapting the final arc from the manga. Dubbed as part of the 'Big 3', it almost felt like an end of an era. Some fans were left confused that the anime omitted its final arc although it's understandable that the manga was still ongoing at the time. Almost 8 years later, Bleach's massive 20th Anniversary Event breathed new life into the franchise as we got the final arc anime announcement: Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War. Mind you, this isn't just an announcement for what fans wanted after all these years. It's a celebration for the entire Bleach fandom.

Short review:
Very unexpected, very different, cool, juicy art, juicy music, fancy animation camera angles, fancy effects.
Everything about "Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen" screams
Wow, this is so different from what the old "Bleach" was.

In general:
Another good shounen anime that has conflicts/issues and how people solve them either through being clever or using power.

I recently had the misfortune of watching the anime series Bleach Thousand-Year Blood War and I must say that it is one of the worst anime series I have ever seen. From the very beginning, the animation was sloppy and the artwork was uninspired. The characters were two-dimensional and the plot was convoluted.

The story felt rushed and forced, with characters being introduced and killed off within a single episode. There was no depth to the characters and the dialogue was often too expository. The pacing was all over the place, with some episodes feeling like they dragged on forever and others feeling like they were ...
