New Bleach chapter: release date, time, spoilers and where to play

Bleach author Tite Kubo made headlines earlier after announcing that he would commemorate the manga’s 20th anniversary by publishing a 73-page chapter. Fans are now wondering when it will be released and where they can read it.

Bleach is one of the most commercially successful series in the world. The series is in the top 100 manga of all time and has a 7.81 rating on My Anime List. So when fans heard that the creator would bring a new chapter to the manga 5 years after it ended in 2016, they were overjoyed.

The next chapter is a one-shot as a side story, as opposed to a continuation of the last story, but it is relevant to the story. Therefore, for the purposes of this article, we will refer to it as “Chapter 687.” Note: this article may contain spoilers!

BLEACH CHAPTER 687: Release Date And Time Revealed

Bleach’s 20th anniversary special episode (687) is scheduled to premiere at midnight JST on Tuesday, August 10, 2021. The premiere date has been confirmed by Titus on his official Twitter account, along with a cover art, which you can see here.

This date is based on the time that Shonen regularly publishes his content. If this turns out to be correct, the game is scheduled to release worldwide at the following times:

Pacific Time: 10 am
Central time: 12 o’clock.
Eastern Time: 1 pm
UK time: 6pm
Central Eastern Time: 7 pm
India Time: 10:30 pm


Warning: This article may contain spoilers!

A magazine tagline advertises a story that says “Ichigo has been invited to Soul Society for a certain ceremony, but! This is all the information available at the moment, causing fans to speculate where the chapters could go. Especially after the end of the manga in which Orihime, Ichigo, Rukia, and Renji solidified their respective relationships.

As of this writing, there are no spoilers circulating. However, we expect new information to be released 2-3 days before the single release. So don’t hesitate to get back to us for updates.

In the meantime, it’s not too late to catch up on some of the previous Viz chapters.
