My Hero Academia’s Creator Honors Bleach with Anniversary Artwork

If you are not up to date with the latest news, well you should know Bleach gets back into the saddle. After closing its doors almost a decade ago, the supernatural series is set to return to television next fall. Tite Kubo will oversee Ichigo’s return to the anime as Soul Reaper has one final arc to complete. And in the light of BleachAnother famous manga artist’s 20th anniversary gives Soul Society a colorful makeover.

Of course, the artwork comes from none other than Kohei Horikoshi, the artist behind My hero university. The artist released a colorful poster on Bleach ahead of her 20th birthday. This is where Horikoshi gave his take on a surprising Soul Reaper, as Mayuri Kurotsuchi was not on fan bingo lists.

The poster, which you can see below, shows Mayuri sitting down with her usual headgear missing in action. The black and white Soul Reaper looks quite creepy here with his big yellow eyes and teeth. Her white captain’s robe is hard to miss given Mayuri’s hunched posture, and in the midst of that, fans can find the scientist’s assistant sitting down. Nemu still looks the same in her short black dresses, but it’s unclear what kind of experiments Mayuri has had on the android since we last saw her in Bleach.

Mayuri could be one of the strongest captains in Bleach, but his odd character doesn’t really make him love fans. Other leaders like Toshiro Hitsugaya and even Byakuya Kuchiki are easier to worship than Horikoshi’s beloved scientist. But when it comes to design, well, there are few Captains who can compare to the looks Mayuri serves on a regular basis.

What do you think from Horikoshi’s point of view Bleach? Would you like to see Kubo give his opinion on any My hero university characters? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below or hit me up on Twitter @Megan PetersCB.
