The 52nd cover of the Kubo Tite’s action-packed manga, Bleach, has recently been released! It features former leader of Xcution, Shukuro Tsukishima on the front cover with the title “End of Bond”. The volume includes Bleach manga chapters 451-459 and is scheduled to be released in Japan Tuesday, October 04, 2011 by Shueisha.
As for the North American version of Bleach volume 52, well, the release date has not yet been announced by Viz Media. We expect it will take some time (well, a really long time) for us to get it; probably two to three years at the pace they are being released right now. Currently, North America is on volume 36, which was released earlier this month on September 6, 2011. Amazon lists Volume 37 as scheduled to be released in North America on December 6th while volume 38 is expected on March 06, 2012.
