By saying short term he didn’t specify for how long but is expected to be of 2-5 volumes long. Burn the Witch will start serialization in summer anytime between  July to September.

Kubo commented: “It has been so much time probably almost everyone forgot about it, and actually I also forgot. I thought the TYBW Arc wouldn’t be animated, so I didn’t expect the animation project in this 20th Anniversary.

There’s also the continuation of Burn The Witch that I didn’t plan to serialize and only showed it to my family and close ones because of pure curiosity. As a result, my editor saw it and told me to make it a series and animate it. It’s the first time I’ll be drawing manga and anime designs at the same time.

I think it will be interesting and overall good work. By the way, I have finished the manuscript. By the time you read the series, I’ll be playing Animal Crossing, and so I’m looking forward to playing it with everyone.”

All these above announcements are part of the Bleach 20th Anniversary Project which was supposed to be made during AnimeJapan 2020 set for March 23.

The event was canceled due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 virus outbreak. Instead, now the announcement will be made during the Livestream presentation set for March 20. Also, the above-mentioned scan will appear in WSJ issue 17 which will release the next day.
