Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World is a series of Bleach novels by Ryōgo Narita, with input from Tite Kubo, that centers on Shūhei Hisagi.[4]

The Quincy Thousand Year Blood War is over, but the embers of turmoil still smolder in Soul Society. Tokinada Tsunayashiro, elevated to head of his clan after a slew of assassinations take out every other claimant to the title, has a grand plan to create a new Soul King. His dark ambitions soon sow the seeds of a new total war across the realms, but all is not lost. There is one unlikely Shinigami who holds the key to defusing the conflict — Shūhei Hisagi, lieutenant of the Ninth Division and reporter for the Seireitei Communication![6]

Volume 1


As head of the Seireitei Communication, Hisagi uses his journalistic skills to investigate when there is an attempted assassination aimed at the four great Noble Houses. An unknown Shinigami attacks the Quincy and the Arrancar that survived in Hueco Mundo. And with a rapidly growing, mysterious religious group in the Human World, there is turmoil in each of the three main realms of existence. It all connects to the new head of the Tsunayashiro family, one of the four great Noble Houses.[4]
