A theatrical anime adaptation of the Burn the Witch one-shot was announced during the Bleach 20th Anniversary Project & Tite Kubo New Project Presentation livestream on Saturday. The anime will debut in Fall 2020.

Synopsis
Historically, 72% of all the deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to the majority of the people. While unknown to most, some people have been standing up to these dragons.

Only inhabitants of Reverse London who live in the hidden "reverse" side of London can see the dragons. Even then, only a selected few become qualified enough as witches or wizards to make direct contact with them.

The protagonists of the story are witch duo Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind (WB), an organization for dragon conservation and management. Their mission is to protect and manage the dragons within London on behalf of the people. (Source: Official site)

Voice actresses Yuina Yamada (Anima Yell!, Kuromukuro) and Asami Tano (Zombieland Saga, Love Live! Sunshine!!) are playing the lead characters Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole, respectively.

The animation looks so smooth. I never expected Colorido doing a project like this, but I'm not complaining at all.

I'm maybe even more happy for this, than about final arc of Bleach anime, simply because of European setting.

I remember reading the one shot and actually liking it. I really hope they give the characters more expressive faces from early Bleach over the permanent constipated looks every character had on their face starting from the Hueco Mundo arc

Don't mind a Movie one bit! Fluid animation and an interesting duo on first glance, looks like this'll be a fun ride.

Gotta say the trailer looks good, but surprised that this one-shot will be animated, it was really mediocre at best. Mb serialization will be better ...

probably even less, since kubo said the manga will be finished by the time anime released.

Never read the one-shot, but this trailer for the movie looks solid. Both main characters look beautiful too.
Looking forward to this, may even read the one-shot before touching the movie.

This is the year of Kubo. First Sakura Taisen, then Bleach and then this. Our King has returned.

I don't know anything about the manga, but the trailer as well as the really talented staff make me confident, that this will be some good shit. Plus these two girls are cute.

I am excited for more from the bleach author even tho the second part of bleach needed to be burned.

I thought the one shot was interesting as well. I hope he also adapts it in manga form as well.

just your usual action shounen, nothing too gory.

It is unusual to see so few salty people in this thread. When this title was first translated, I saw people who literally hated Kubo for not being yuri.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.
