Bleach: The Rise (ブリーチ:台頭 , Burīchi:Taitō) is a fanfiction series in development by User:KyubiSoul. It will follow Tomu Kurai as the central protagonist. It was was officially cancelled on November 19th, 2013, in favor of Bleach: Shadow Fall.
The story is set in a similar manor to the main Bleach series, with noticeable differences. Aizen is not the captain of the Fifth Division rather he is the captain of the Third Division. Aizen was not the lieutenant of the Fifth Division in the past rather the 3rd seat. Gin remained Aizen’s lieutenant for the remainder of Aizen’s time in the Gotei 13. The major difference is that before the start of the series Aizen defected ahead of the main series with Kaname and Gin. The story will follow Tomu Kurai from Ichigo’s Invasion of the Soul Society to his battle against Aizen’s Arrancar Army and later a much more sinister threat.
