Before the anime came out, there were fears that the anime will be censored. This is based on the source materials’ final arc which has a lot of violent fights, as well as the rumors that the series will be a Disney+ exclusive which might mean it’ll be censored.

Despite the rumors, there were also fears that the anime will not get simulcast outside Japan.

This is because VIZ Media didn’t announce where the anime will be released outside Japan until one week after its air date.

In early October, it was finally revealed that Thousand-Year Blood War will stream on Hulu in the US and on Disney+ in other countries.

Right now though, the anime continues to be unavailable in some regions.

This is unlike the original anime’s run which featured fights that did not get as violent.
