March 27th – The End of Bleach?

According to a listing in a Japanese newspaper, the schedule of TV Tokyo has already been altered. Instead of Tite Kubo’s Bleach, in the 6:00pm time space will be Naruto’ spin off story Naruto SD: Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden.

The change will be effective starting March 27, 2012 when the show will be taken down and respectively April 03,2012 when the new one will begin. However, I am wondering if they won’t just change the time of Bleach sine the final arc wouldn’t have ended in the manga andit definitely needs to be animated… or does it? Is Tite Kubo currently doing a filler arc (so unimportant that it might just be skipped out of the anime) in the manga?

The image was shared by a follower of Hiroki Takagi (Bleach’s animation director) and approved by the staff member as reliable.

I believe this will be a farewell with Bleach, but as a being whose love for the show was before it got so wrong and I have stayed with it up until now, I need to say that I am expecting something really great out of this mangaka and I hope he get s it out in the market as soon as possible!

    1. Another thing that confuses me is that the viewership is obviously extremely low since they will be ending it before the manga’s lastchapter. They will probably use the end of the fullbringer arc for this since it’s not that long as the usual for Tite Kubo. However, I am still trying to find an answer to the question: is it the end of Bleach or are they just changing its runtime? (trying to contact the TV station)

    1. D.Gray Man, One Piece, Naruto (which too is nearing its end) are the first to come to mind, but I suppose that’s nothing new to you as a title. I hope we get to have something worthy out of the new anime that will come.
