in the Translation of the Announcement for the 1000-Year Blood War Arc anime of Bleach it says

A new anime based on Tite Kubo’s one-shot manga Burn the Witch is coming this fall! Burn the Witch follows the story of two witches working for the Western Branch of Soul Society, located in Reverse London, and takes place in the Bleach universe.

now i always thought that in Bleach the Soul Society was the entire world of the Afterlife, not just the Seireitei and Rukongai Districts, but the translation suggests that Reverse London in Burn the Witch is a separate branch of the Soul Society and looking at a video of the upcoming anime shows other creatures that aren't Hollows)

So it got me wondering, is the Soul Society the entire world of the afterlife? if so does the Burn the Witch Manga explain the relationship between Reverse London and the Soul Society? or are the two just separate organizations in the same afterlife?

  • From what I've read, Soul Society is composed of both Eastern and Western Branch: Eastern Branch is what we see in Bleach, Western Branch in Burn the Witch. Both are the same organization, just different branches. I have yet to read Burn the Witch to verify but I thought this might help for the meantime. – W. Are Mar 26 at 11:32
