For some time Tite Kubo has been talking about the approach of a Bleach: Thousand Years War Trailer. The new anime, which has been officially announced for a couple of years and which has yet to see the light of day on TVs and streaming services, has revealed itself in a video that served to bring Ichigo Kurosaki back for good.

He's the protagonist who first appears in the new Bleach anime trailer, but he's certainly not the only one. In fact, there are quite a number of characters, some of which are already known and will side with the protagonists, others will instead form the entire enemy faction. Let's see what the Characters revealed in the Bleach trailer and who will then return to the new anime.

For the protagonists there are:

  • Ichigo Kurosaki
  • Rukia Kuchiki
  • Renji Abarai
  • Shigekuni Genryusai Yamamoto
  • Soifon
  • Shinji Hirako
  • Byakuya Kuchiki
  • Sayin Komamura
  • Kenpachi Zaraki
  • Toshiro Hitsugaya
  • Shunsui Kyoraku
  • Jushiro Ukitake
  • Mayuri Kurotsuchi
  • Retsu Unohana
  • Kensei Muguruma
  • Rojuro Otoribashi

Instead, the antagonists are:

  • Asguiaro Boars
  • Quilge Opie
  • Bambietta Basterbine
  • Bazz B
  • Jugram Haswalt
  • Yhwak

The protagonists have therefore been given a lot of prominence, while the Quincy who will appear there as antagonists will have time to make amends throughout the series. The trailer instead ended with an iconic Ichigo Kurosaki moment that fans of the manga had been waiting for a long time.
