Custom Ichigo Vizard Funko Bring Nostalgia

Month after month, we see new rumours on the web reporting on a hopeful return of Bleach. However, even if there is anything going on behind the scenes, there is no concrete information available. It’s been quite a while since the Bleach publication ended and its since the anime was put to bed by Studio Pierrot. This of course didn’t stop fans from talking and making fan art around it all over the world.

An artist named IGvinylalchemist turned Ichigo’s vizard form into a Funko Pop and posted it on Reddit. He based this figure off of a concept by another artist @tesseractdigital. You can check out this piece on Instagram here. Fans went hearts after seeing this Funko Pop:

When we dug deep into his profile we figured that this was not his first work and the artist has tons of similar self-made Funko Pops under his belt. You can check out his entire collection on his Instagram here as well as on his Reddit profile along with the fans begging to get a chance to buy one of those.

Earlier we covered another anime genre artist Inkbypnut and his newly opened, Dallas based anime tattoo store where he skinned some fantastic anime characters on his customers. He even had to sell all his anime goodies to start that store!.

Bleach left such a deep mark on the anime world that it will be criminal to not continue the series or at least animate the remaining part. Even Johnny Yong Bosch(English voice of Ichigo) signed an online – Petition to bring Bleach back a while ago. But for now, fans will have to simply settle by re-watching Bleach while hoping Studio Pierrot finds time to restart the anime it never finished.

About Bleach

Bleach is a Japanese anime television series based on Tite Kubo’s manga of the same name. The anime series adapts Kubo’s manga but also introduces some new, original, self-contained story arcs. It is based in Karakura Town on a 15-year-old high school student Ichigo Kurosaki who becomes a substitute Soul Reaper when Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper, put Soul Reaper powers in Ichigo and they barely managed to kill the hollow. Although initially reluctant to accept the heavy responsibility, he begins eliminating some more hollows and also discovers that several of his friends and classmates are spiritually aware and have powers of their own.
