Bleach: Can’t Fear Your Own World Design and Antagonists Shown

Bleach: Can’t Fear Your Own World will be released on the 4th of August 2017, on Jump j Books. This new novel follows on on Bleach manga, it’s created by Durarara!!’s  author Ryohgo Narita, which will be serialised every other Friday on their Jump+ digital platform. New visuals and the novels antagonists are also shown below!

The story of Bleach: Can’t Fear Your Own World follows Hisagi Shuhei, vice captain of the 9th Squad and editor and chief of the Seireitei communication. He investigates a mystery leading newly revealed secrets about the Nobel Houses, the Soul King, Arrancar and Fullbringers.

Preparing the release of the new novel, Tite Kubo draws images of the villain’s of the novel: Tokinada Tsunayashiro, and his protege, Hikone.

Also, just to add because I missed this earlier in the month, Tite Kubo also did a crossover interview with comedy manga author Jigoku no Misawa (who is married to Makoto Matsubara, a novelist who wrote a Bleach tie-in). Both tried to draw the same subjects from two different perspectives, characters from the manga Ii yo ne! Yonezawa-sensei.


Those are some really impressive character drawings if you ask me, on to of which I really like the comparison because it just shows how much more Kubo adds to the characters.

Anyways, what are your thoughts on the new visuals shown above? The antagonists don’t look like anything special, but I’m sure they’ll be epic. Go ahead and comment below telling us what you think, be sure to also share this awesome news with other fans of Bleach and the upcoming novel!

      Wow, reading all of that really does put perspective to what has happened after Yhwach’s fall. I might try to post something that summarises or lists something better later on, and as more stuff is released.

      Indeed, I would have loved to see maybe another 10 or so chapters explaining and showing all of this, it would have actually been epic to see. Although, I’m still happy that we get some of it, even if it’s ended.

        If Kubo wasn’t forced to end it so soon, I’m pretty sure we would have received this information naturally through the plot. Everyone wanted a 1000 or more flashback arc of what happened with the Soul King, why Shinigami and Quincy are complete opposites in nearly everyway but somehow both have ties to the Royal Realm. Why they even went to war in the first place. The fact the 5 noble families manipulate the entire soul society would have been explained in this flashback. This “great sin” lust have been turning the Soul King into a prisoner, casting Yhwach and the Quincy out of the Royal Realm, and planning on making Ichigo the Soul King, even though that goes against everything Ichigo stands for as a character. This flashback would have really reinforced Yhwach and Aizen’s motivations as primary antagonists. I also would have preferred if Jushiro and Ginjou either fought each other or against the Quincy and actually reinforce his motivations as a primary antagonist. I really like the idea of Kaname’s friend being killed and got no justice because her husband was a nobleman with apparently a lot of influence in Central 46. I’m gonna guess that the Tsunayashiro clan sent the assiassan to kill Ginjou, who forced Jushiro to do it. I’m glad some of the Sternritter survived. I’m kinda sad Askin died but we went out like a champ. If Giselle survived than I’m hopeful that Lilttoto survived too. I’m definitely going to order this when it comes out in English.

          Indeed, I’ll have to look and read it online for the time being. I honestly wanted to Kubo to go just a tad slower and longer duration so he could cover every fight, conversation and situation.
