The new season covered the same characters in the original storyline with much better animation and soundtrack — which is everything fans had wished for. Bleach TYBW Part 2 is set to release in July 2023, though the exact date has yet to be announced.

Horimiya is a popular romance manga which was adapted into anime back in 2021. Despite the beautiful animation and catchy soundtrack, the anime adaptation didn’t manage to live up to fans’ expectations. The series was 13 episodes long, yet it covered the entire story, missing most of the scenes from the manga. 

The missing parts and weird pacing completely ruined the essence of the story. However, CloverWorks announced a new Horimiya anime called Horimiya: Piece, which is lined up for Summer 2023. The series is set to release in July 2023, though the exact date has yet to be announced.
