    The wraparound jacket band on the 74th and final compiled book volume of Tite Kubo's Bleach manga revealed on Friday that the franchise will get two novels. Makoto Matsubara, who has written previous novelizations of the manga, will write the first novel. The novel will center on Renji and Rukia, and is slated for December. Ryohgo Narita (Baccano!, Durarara!!) will write the second novel. The novel will focus on Shūhei Hisagi's secret battle, and is slated for 2017.

    The manga is inspiring live-action film adaptation slated for 2018.

    Sounds awesome. It took me MANY years to get into Bleach, but this year I really got into it.

    This year's combined 21st and 22nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing the title on Monday for Ryohgo Narita's (Baccano!, Durarara!!) new Bleach novel based on Tite Kubo's manga.

    The novel is titled Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World, and it will launch on both the Shonen Jump+ app and the official Bleach app on April 28. The apps will update with new content for the novel every other week.

    Narita's novel centers on Shūhei Hisagi. Shūhei must throw himself into a new fight as the mystery that Kaname Tōsen left behind resurfaces. The story will reveal more details about the four noble families, the Soul King, Arrancar, and Fullbringers. Narita previously wrote the two-volume Bleach: Spirits Are Forever With You novel series, which Shueisha published in 2012.
