Bleach TYBW Streaming Guide: Why Did Crunchyroll Take Down The Previous Episodes?


The time for Bleach TYBW streaming is near as the long-awaited final arc of substitute Soul Reaper is coming this October. There are many reasons to be hyped about the show, but the biggest one is the series getting justice. The show ended back in 2012, and since then, fans have only hoped for it to get anime in the future. Now that hope has come true as the anime was announced to return in 2023.

The announcement was made in 2021, but there was no release date announced back then. However, given the context of anime, fans were hoping it to come back the same year as it would tie in with the TYBW arc. Yhwach, the main antagonist of this arc, had a back story of regaining his power in 9 years. Alas, that didn’t happen, but the fans weren’t disappointed by it, what did lead to disappointment was the situation with Crunchyroll and Hulu.

Will Bleach TYBW be streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu?

Bleach is a long anime with a lot of episodes and anime movies under its franchise. And seeing that the anime is returning after eleven years, of course, fans would want to watch the old episodes and get a refresher. Though they won’t be the only people as anime viewers who watched it would also want to watch the series to see what it is about. Of course, manga is one of the best ways to consume the series as well, but people mostly pick watching anime over reading manga.

Though there is nothing wrong with watching anime over manga, they would have to read the series instead. Crunchyroll and Hulu have removed the series episodes from their site with no info as to whether or not they will have it back. Ask anyone if they would agree it was a bad move on their part. One of the big three anime franchises of all time is coming back, and they are distancing away from it. Sadly, this was not something they had control over.

Disney had brought rights to Bleach TYBW streaming along with old episodes. It is mostly a bad thing for anime fans, Disney is someone who has gone over destroyed franchises. And it was the first response for everyone who had learned about it, but you don’t need to be afraid.

Disney has only brought rights to stream on Disney plus and nothing more, though there is still the issue of lackluster selection on the streaming platform. The company has produced mediocre stuff recently (Obi-Wan is an exception), and their selection of anime is minuscule at best. As of now, the only good animes on the site are the old episodes of Bleach and Summer Time Render. Which makes it less likely for anime fans to buy the subscription plans as there isn’t much there for them.

When will Bleach TYBW stream? 

Bleach TYBW streaming will begin in October. The first episode of the series will be available from October 10, 2023. The show is available to stream on Disney plus only, not anywhere else. It would have made sense for it to be available on Hulu as well since the company is owned by Disney. But Disney has a habit of pretending they aren’t the same, perhaps to gain some extra subscription?

What is Bleach about?

Ichigo Kurosaki is a Yankee with a soft spot, he has a soft spot for simple things and goes hard thing that goes against his values. This personality quirk is due to his ability to see ghosts for as long as he can remember. Though he is not shy about helping ghosts in need, his powers are growing, and they have started gaining the attention of otherwordly nightmares, the Hollows. And one of them has come to the human realm to eat Ichigo, but this is where things get complicated.

A soul reaper has come to cleanse the hollow but is caught in the crossfire between Ichigo and the Hollow. Unable to do anything, she gave half of her powers to Ichigo, only for him to consume all and, in turn, become a substitute soul reaper.
