When Part 1 of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War came out in October 2022, fans were gearing up for the end. Little did they know, the Bleach finale would actually last for years. Only with anime can finales last entire seasons. It’s been a long painful wait since Part 1 ended in December 2022, but it’s almost here.

Part 2 is officially titled Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War – The Separation. It will continue Ichigo’s journey as the inevitable battle between the Soul Society and the Sternritters approaches. Read this Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 episode guide to find out when each episode drops.

Although a specific number of episodes hasn’t been announced yet, Part 2 would likely have 12-13. Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War will reportedly run for four cours with breaks in between. The first cour/Part 1 lasted for 13 episodes, so it stands to reason that Part 2 will as well.
