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.

just your usual action shounen, nothing too gory.
actually if its anything like bleach it can get pretty gory, like bleach is an anime that was super censored

if it's kubo tite I would definitely say yes. I hope it can be as fun as witchcraft.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Heard the serialization will gonna be pretty short, like about 5 volumes? Is that true?
probably even less, since kubo said the manga will be finished by the time anime released.

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 ...

From shinigami to witch like little witch academia

Well, good job tite kubo (and also he made some characters from sakura taisen 2019 version)

The one shot was really enjoyable so def looking forward to the anime adaptation and the continuation of the series in manga form.

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

Mar 20, 9:43 PM by _MushiRock11_

Yes, yes, yes, I so wanted this one-shot to get a longer serialization and an anime adaptation of any kind as well, thank you!.

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

Mar 20, 7:54 PM by OnionKnightRises

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

Mar 20, 7:48 PM by Psajdak

This looks fucking gorgeous!

Got some damn good staff working on this. Studio Colorido are really giving this the look it needed ^^

I'm beyond hyped!
