Crunchyroll announced today that Tite Kubo’s Burn the Witch is coming to their platform soon! 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.
Tatsuro Kawano, who was previously responsible for directing Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, will be directing Burn the Witch as well. The series is scheduled to stream worldwide outside of Asia on Crunchyroll.
Crunchyroll describes the series as follows:
Historically 72% of all the deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to the majority of the people.
While unknown to most, some people have been standing up to these dragons.
Only inhabitants of Reverse London who live in the hidden “reverse” side of London can see the dragons. Even then, only a selected few become qualified enough as witches or wizards to make direct contact with them.
The protagonists of the story are witch duo 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.
In addition, a trailer for the anime was released which you can view below:
