Bleach May End: “Final Chapter Starts”


Bleach-watchers have reacted with a mixture of surprise and incredulity to the news that Bleach is entering into its “final chapter” – although just how long this will last is the subject of much speculation.


The scan circulating simply reveals Bleach’s “final chapter” is starting, giving no hint as to how protracted a finale this might be – although given the author’s previous comments hopefully nobody is holding their breath.

Online, there is some disbelief and much checking of the skies:

“Thank goodness.”

“They say final chapter but this is probably the last part and due to last years.”

“Give it 10 years.”


“Expect another 30 volumes.”

“I think they are just bluffing in an attempt to drum up more reader interest.”

“It’ll be sad to finally lose it.”

“They were saying it would actually end, I guess it was really true.”

“What’ll happen to the anime!?”

“If it gets popular again they will just restart it as Bleach 2 I bet…”

    Gantz has been milking the "final arc" for around 2 or 3 years hasn't it...

    While what you're saying is true, Gantz's chapter release dates are not bi-weekly (even when the mangaka cheats by using 3D, and can't draw facial expression to save his own life). If there's anything to be complaining about, we should be complaining about Berserk not getting anywhere near the ending for over 20years. WTF 1 chapter every 1-3 months?

    I would complain about Hajime no Ippo but I'm not into fake boxing :3

    It should have ended a long time ago. It was pretty crappy after the end of Aizen arc.

    I can't wait for Kubo's new masterpiece!

    It should have ended after Grand Fisher. The very beginning of Bleach was the best.

    Idd, the soul society part was by far the best part of Bleach.
    Btw am I the only one feeling like Bleach gets a bit blurry from the end of SC? I have had a feeling that maybe the story was actually intended to end after that.. but it kept going becuz it was rolling in alot of cash?
    And in doing so, became incredibly bad..

    agreed. really though, after the first season the animation really started to drop in quality. Now it's gotten to be one of the fugliest shows I've seen. I swear it looks the quality of some 10 year old low budget hentai film. Some how they made every girl ugly.... and don't get me started on tatsuki's mullet :/

    Have you seen the Ulquiorra fight? Or the Grimmjow fight for that matter. The animation by no means dropped in quality, if anything it set new standards for epic, DBZ style, out-of-my-nut-powerspam. I'm sorry, but it seems like Bleach haters are just dick riders of other animes to me. I respect the fact that people like other animation styles, but you cant take anything away from the animation Bleach has produced over the past few years, fillers not included, although even some of them had top notch animation. Note: Some.

    a couple of ok-quality fight scenes in an arc plagued with poor production does not constitute overall good quality

    It did. What you have been reading/watching is the Soul Society arc repeated forever. ZOMG GAIZ it's Endless Eight AGAIN!!!! NAOOOOO

    Correction: It should have ended before the Soul Society Arc.

    I found the first season of the anime to be quite cool, even if things progressed a bit slow. As soon as they went over to the soul society it became a pointless battle-fest that dragged on way longer than it should have. Even so, I stuck with it, thinking it might get back on track once they finally returned. Instead, it got even worse, and I finally dropped it around halfway through season 4. As for the dozen or so seasons that followed, I don't know, but I haven't heard many positive things about them, and wasn't about to waste hundreds of hours watching an anime that's 90% filler. There are far better anime out there for someone to spend their time with, that actually try to tell a story rather than simply drag on for as long as possible.

    I also liked it the best before the Soul Soc. Arc and dropped it during the Hueco Mundo Arc ^_^U and I'm talking about the manga, I found watching the anime pointless since it has fillers to top it off.

    I think Bleach is pretty good, it only needs a bit more editing because it's unnecessarily stretched with too many fights, and some characters are only given "screen time" because of their popularity and coolness and not because of being vital to the story.

    If that was the case Grimmjaw would have came back a while ago, no?

    Maybe it's be rebooted into something different. Say... "Bleach Darkness"? The plot would be something like: Ichigo constantly unwittingly running into girls undressing.

    So it's better than Rosario Vampire, Otoshimono, Sekirei, HOTD, Maken-Ki, R-15, High School DxD and other fanservice anime?
    Rhetorical question, of course it is but it isn't better than Shippuden or One Piece but it beats Toriko easily.

    Lol, I love Fairy Tail but have you read the latest chapters yet? Sure it's getting back on track now but you can't disregard the time skip Mashima did for fun.

    I really wonder what's in store for creators of Naruto and Bleach and maybe One Piece after this. Some of my favorite mangaka in history like the Rumiko Takahashi went from legendary stuff like Ranma 1/2 to Inuyasha which was a fun ride, despite her inexperience with shonen style fighting manga.

    Also, as bad as some parts of Bleach was, the characters' style and aesthetic was fantastic. And there were some really great moments here and there (and oh yeah, pretty boys/girls filling up every page!).

    It has its faults, the abject haters don't need to keep bringing it up. But it was fun.

    Perhaps you're referring to the anime?

    The manga went directly from Aizen to Xcution without any of those worthless filliers.

    It did feel like it could of been a right ending after aizen-but the stuff with soul society monitoring and controlling ichigo was needed to explain how he lost his bankai at points (because soul society restricting him) I hope we finally get something to do with the king and royal guard which is all thats left to do.

    I think the fullbrings where a cool idea but could of been done better.

    haha yeah stories like bleach shouldve ended a long time one piece.....shows like that tend to just have the poorly animated characters jump around fighting enemy after enemy never reaching their goal due to plot holes that they try to fix with shit-tons of filler and long arduous explanations within battle.....

    Name one plot hole in One Piece. Oh wait, you probably haven't even read a bit of One Piece, since you just grouped it with Bleach.

    I agree that OP anime isn't that great, but they always do a good job with the fights (not zoro's) and watching the places they go such as water 7 and SA in full color is very nice.

    At least you can track their pace with One Piece. With Bleach the story ends then for some reason it always starts again. One Piece isn't like that, it'll end when it should.

    Even before that, it should have ended a little bit after soul society, at it's prime(sadly manga rarely end that way)

    So glad this is ending, now end Naruto too so there will be more spot for younger mangakas to show their talent in JUMP

    It was pretty mediocre to start with, but has been brain dead since the end of the soul society arc.
