Bleach’s author Tite Kubo is apparently set on keeping Bleach going for at least another 10 years, remarking that it is only halfway through.
Kubo’s remarks were reported by 2ch-frequenting attendees of the recently held Jump Festa, where he took the stage to talk about his creation:
“It’s about halfway through the story at the moment.
At the very least, I’ll be doing it for another 10 years.”
Another version has him being asked “So will you be keeping it going for the next 30 years?” to which he responds “I think I’d like to make it a bit shorter than that,” with the other speaker quipping that “It should be continuing for at least another 10 years!”
Both accounts agree on him saying he is about half done however, which for a 10-year-old title would rather suggest another 10 years to go.
Reactions to all this are mixed to say the least, ranging from enthused to horrified…
