Bleach Has Never Been So Beautiful In The Art From The Creators Of Naruto And One Piece

Manga titans Eiichiro Oda and Masashi Kishimoto deliver pieces honoring Tite Kubo and Bleach as part of a 20th anniversary art exhibition.

Some of the manga’s most renowned artists have come together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Bleach, and they presented some pretty amazing work from Tite Kubo’s beloved series.

The work, produced as part of a series of events in honor of Bleach, is now presented in Tokyo for an exhibition on the history of the series. The work presented includes pieces from A piece‘s Eiichiro Oda and Naruto‘s Masashi Kishimoto, some of the biggest names in manga, as well as new stars in Shonen jumpas Yusei Matsui (Assassination class), Koyoharu Gotouge (Demon slayer), Yuki Tabata (Black clover), Gege Akutami (Jujutsu kaisen) and Riichiro Inagaki (Dr Pierre). Also on display are works by Tite Kubo himself, both new pieces and those from the original series by Bleach.

Each piece shows off the artist’s individual style well, exhibiting a variety of different sensations in the work of art. Oda, for example, uses her familiar simplistic faces, while emphasizing the flowing robes the Soul Reapers wear in her room on Ichigo. Kishimoto submitted a piece created using an unusual choice of medium, showing a besieged Ichigo reflected in his sword while gazing at a setting sun. But not everyone submitted the illustrations of the protagonist of the series Ichigo. Gotouge’s play shows Orihime and Rukia looking happy in their school uniforms, while Tabata focuses on what is clearly her favorite character, Kenpachi Zaraki (along with his lieutenant, Yachiru). Inagaki’s play also caters to his own preferences, showing Ikkaku Madarame slicing a beaker in a charmingly colored sketch, while Matsui’s love for figures with odd, augmented bodies shines through in his choice of subject, the mad scientist Mayuri Korotsuchi. That of Inagaki is particularly interesting, since it only writes Dr Pierre, and does not often show their own designs.

It is clear to see in these works of the new mangaka that Bleach had a huge impact on almost everyone, and each piece comes with a little note addressing their respect and admiration for Kubo. It’s also always fun to see Kubo’s mate Jump peers from the early 2000s are grappling with his work, and Oda, Kishimoto, and Kubo all seem to have developed a friendly and amicable relationship over the years. These art exhibitions are a moderately common event in Japan, along with other series like Kohei Horikoshi’s. My hero university having had their own exhibitions earlier in the year. More than just celebrating a particular series, these exhibitions offer big names in the industry a chance to express their appreciation for those who might otherwise be seen as rivals, fostering a camaraderie that is indispensable in the difficult manga industry. .

With BleachWith the exhibition barely opening on December 18, fans in the Tokyo area will have plenty of time to go and see what an incredible influence the series has had on the manga as a whole.
