If you haven't read Chapter 680 or checked on the Anime News Network site on Thursday Morning, you may notice a color page at the beginning of the chapter.
Yep, so it's official. The Final Countdown has begun. Tite Kubo, the creator behind the series, will be announcing that the Bleach manga will be nearing it's end. Now, we know this was coming, it is the Final Arc of the series, the manga is at it's last leg as we reach the climax for this final arc we enter the final battle. You can a little ink drop on the right side of that color page in the beginning of Chapter 680 shows how many chapters are left in the series. Meaning that...we don't know. This is not like Naruto back in 2014 when Masashi Kishimoto declaring the manga will end in just five weeks, thus ending at Chapter 700. Which, I don't know if the Bleach manga will do the same? Pretty sure Kubo won't do that? Anyway, like I said in my Bleach manga review for Chapter 680 over at Tumblr, by the way, the manga review is in my Tumblr page, you just have to search it, that the series would probably end around either later this year in 2016, probably around either October, November, or December, or probably around early next year into 2017.
So what's next for me as a reviewer. Well, if you haven't read my Chapter 680 review...you know, here's what I said in that very review.
"Guys…I’ve been a Bob’s Burgers reviewer since 2014, about to reach my 50th Review in September, so I guess I’m gonna continue with that. As for the manga reviews…once the series ends…that’s it…no more manga reviews from your’s truly. It’s the end of the road for the series and it’s the end of the road for the manga review. And I know what you’re gonna say next, “What about the Boruto manga?” Yeah…I’m not gonna do that, possibly, even though the current situation is in the depths of the Boruto movie, I’m not gonna do it. I mean…Naruto ended, Gravity Falls ended (despite Season 2, Episodes 15-20 is not out), Doctor Who won’t come back till 2017. So what then? I could review either Regular Show or Steven Universe once the Bleach manga ended, but you know me, I could jump back ship to Adventure Time."
Yeah...I could end up jumping back ship to Adventure Time, or start doing either Regular Show or Steven Universe reviews, or continue doing the Doctor Who reviews and jump back ship starting in 2017 when Series 10 begins (or Christmas this year, hope it doesn't affect the Top 20 Countdown). Wow...I could start a poll on these options. Maybe letting you guys and gals decide what should I do. Of course, I will still do the Bleach review until the very end. And I will still do the Bob's Burgers reviews with Season 7 coming in September with my 50th Review drawing near.
And of course, with the manga ready to shut down production, you're gonna have a lot of people saying that if the manga ends, the anime should come back. Unless you didn't know, if you're new to the series: First off, you're probably a little late there, buddy; And two, the Bleach anime ended back in 2012, and with the manga nearing the finish line, there could be a possibly of the anime to come back. But of course, for that to happen, we have to wait for the announcement on when the anime is coming back. I mean, it could come in maybe in 2017...or more, I'm NOT in charge of those people. So yeah, what do you think of the announcement? Are you sad or excited about this news? How will you think this series will end? And do you think that the anime will come back once the manga ends? Tell me what you think in the comments below.
