‘BURN THE WITCH’ from Tite Kubo to Stream on Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll, the world’s most popular anime brand, Crunchyroll, has announced that BURN THE WITCH, based on the popular Shonen Jump manga series written and illustrated by Tite Kubo, will be streaming exclusively on Crunchyroll’s platform in starting October 3rd.

The anime, which takes place within the universe of “Bleach,” follows two witches working for the Western Branch of the Soul Society in “Reverse London”. According to the official synopsis, historically 72% of all the deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to the majority of the people. So, apparently London has been one giant barbeque, extra crispy, for some time.

While unknown to most, some people have been standing up to these dragons. However, only inhabitants of Reverse London who live in the hidden “reverse” side of London can actually see the giant flamethrowers. Even then, only a selected few become qualified enough as witches or wizards to make direct contact with them. The protagonists of BURN THE WITCH are a witchy duo consisting of Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind (WB), an organization for dragon conservation and management. Their mission is to protect and manage the dragons within London on behalf of the people.

Tatsuro Kawano (“Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress”) will direct the series. BURN THE WITCH will stream worldwide outside of Asia on Crunchyroll.
