Unfortunate news was revealed today for Bleach fans everywhere. In this year’s 10th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine it was announced that Tite Kubo’s Bleach manga would be entering its final story arc and would be completed once it has finished. This would bring a close to a manga that began in 2001 and been published weekly for eleven years.
No word has been given as to what fans should expect the next arc to be about though fans will be able to learn for themselves next week. Now many fans wished that the series had ended at the conclusion to the Aizen arc, but it seems that the end is finally in sight for one of the biggest and most popular manga series in Japan today. It is worth noting that the last major story arc lasted for four years however, so don’t expect an ending to the manga any time soon.
