VIZ Media announced that English-subtitled episodes from the most current story arc of BLEACH will begin streaming for free in the U.S. via the company’s premier website for anime, VIZAnime.com.
Starting today with Episode 275, VIZAnime.com will stream a new BLEACH episode one week after it has aired in Japan.
BLEACH is one of the most popular Japanese anime and manga properties in the world and this near simulcast schedule is part of VIZ Anime’s ongoing strategy to bring hit animated properties to a national audience via the web.
BLEACH is a popular manga and animated series (both rated ‘T’ for Teens), that follows the adventures of Ichigo, a 15-year old student with the ability to see ghosts. When his family is attacked by a Hollow — a malevolent lost soul – Ichigo encounters Rukia, a Soul Reaper, and inadvertently absorbs her powers. Now, he’s dedicating his life to protecting the innocent and helping tortured souls find peace.
