Burn The Witch Release Date: Fans are excited that Bleach will return in 2021 with the brand new season, but before that, a Bleach spin-off series movie 'Burn THe Witch' will release this year. Burn The Witch is a Bleach spin-off manga that is written by Tite Kubo himself. It was first published in July 2018 as a one-shot. But a few days ago it has started its serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump. The manga will consist of 4 chapters and is a short story. Though being setup in Bleach universe there isn't any crossover of any sort. There was only once when a name from Bleach was mentioned in the manga. Though few points in the manga don't make much sense because of the Bleach universe, fans really loved the manga and are really excited about the movie.
Burn The Witch Plot
Burn The Witch is set up in the "Reverse London". It focuses on two witches, Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They both work in the Western Branch of the 'Soul Society'. It was all mentioned at the start of Bleach manga when Rukia mentioned that Everyone in the soul society knows about the Western Branch and they only deal with Dragons and are on a whole other continent. But the one thing that doesn't make sense is that in Bleach, the soul society didn't interfere in the last two world-threatening events which involved Aizen and Yhwach. So it could only mean two things, either the Western Branch has a different set of rules and regulations or the story is set up so far in future where the old Soul Society government is replaced and a whole new system has been set-up.
