I agree with Fai, as long as they can make money out of bleach, they probably gonna keep milking the bleach cashcow.

As for the other discussion, bleach will go into a shitload of fillers, maybe even worse then the 2 year filler nightmare of naruto, because the manga's pace is so damn slow.

Furthermore i also think naruto will end first. But only because kishimoto has a faster pace of the story. Kubo is just stalling his manga. Both manga's have been declining in quality if you ask me.

And for One Piece, i read somewhere that this manga was about halfway done. Only difference with the rest is, is that the story is growing stronger and stronger.

If there is going to be a hiatus on the anime its going to be one of 2 weeks or something like that. The manga is still 36 chapters ahead of the anime and its been like that for the last couple of years. 1 chapter/1episode ratio


yeah my thoughts exactly. I can see naruto culminating together nicely and the story is much better paced, where as bleach is just dragged and dragged and dragged lol. I mean that show may never end. One piece also has aways to go but at least oda hasn't been dragging his story, he has been dealing with all the important elements of the plot, its just a long series and long adventure to tell. Bleach on the other hand, in my opinion they should of finished that damn aizen ark along time ago. Made it more like the soul society arc or the bounto arc, it seriously didn't need to have that many freaken episodes regarding just defeating hollows and espada's one after the other.

Ok first of all, re word some of your statements. Its hard to tell what your even taking bout, when you use so much irrelevant lines and quotes. its just all rubish to me, sorry.



Read the topic title again.


Guess what retracted is? Rumor debunked.

The first post itself has director's statement that "bleach is not ending anytime soon" :)



Yeah i just saw that, i must of missed that.


And I find it hilarious that someone thinks that One Piece is more likely to end its anime run than naruto. Bleach evne moreso.


ITs all about the market share the product occupies, dvd sales, tv ratings. both bleach and naruto re pierrot's main money-making anime franchises.

Guess why D.gray-man ended? Bad ratings numbers, bad dvd sales. Studio Pierrot tried to turn it into another blockbuster franchise, but it was just not mainstream enough I guess

Closest thing you will ever get to bleach anime ending is a two year anime filler arc and then relaunch ignoring that arc with Bleach:SomethingSomething title.

I am more than confident that with Naruto finally coming to close, Pierrot will more than anything want to milk Bleach for what its worth



Why is so strange to believe that? One piece has been airing for around 15 years. Nearly every shonen series that has came after it, have all had breaks some were down the line. Naruto, hitman reborn, Gintama, D gray man. If you follow along, there is kind of a track there. So its not an understatement that people would believe that, especially since OP is entering a stage in the story where it could be necessary to end the anime adaptation or put it on hold for a while well the manga catches up.

Also your information is wrong bout D gray man. D gray man didn't end because of marketing sales and bad ratings. The manga is published at an extremely slow pacing. Because Hoshino fell ill with Norovirus during her publication of the manga, injured her wrist and also injured her neck and was unable to take up the project so it was put on hold, this happened like 3 times over the course of her life, well writing the manga. There for D gray man didn't have any grounds to work on, the production company could of animated fillers but they chose not to, so it was put on hold.

Probably if it had been naruto or bleach which has much higher ratings and positive Influences, it might of gotten fillers. But as for the manga story line. I dont see it happening any time soon until hoshina finishes her work.





People need to stop taking Character statements as complete truth.


Especially when talking about characters who liek to indulge in psychological warfare.

I am pretty sure many elements were his doing, like "special hollows" or sending certain characters to certain assignments. But the whole "all of it, ALL of it" was just a mindgame to break the main character, IMO.



I am confused by this, i have no idea what your trying to interpertate here. Can you please elaborate. Everyone has there own views and opinions on shows and i do respect that, im not a fanboy that likes to give generalized accusations or biased remarks that are negative towards certain shows and just because some one doesn't see my view on the show, doesn't mean that person doesn't know what there taking bout.

There is a huge variety of different story telling styles that are used in anime and the way they use characterization. personally i found bleach to by pretty one sided. Thats not to say that kubo doesn't know what hes doing as far as a plot progression and story, but its really stretched out, the whole series pretty much revolves around ichigo trying to end the war with aizen and return soul society to the way it was meant to be. Of course the action is one of the huge things bout this show, there is plenty of it and the different styles of techniques they use that are incorporated into the show are both visually appealing and exciting at the same time. But the series, lacks any real depth of a central plot. I mean it is there, but over the course of 300 episodes, you would think there would be alot more grounds to work on the whole structure of the plot by now.


Also this show severally lacks any real character development. honestly the best character development ive seen was the soul society arc and the one filler arc they had and that wasn't even canon. Truthfully im actually relieved to see the aizen arc finally over, perhaps this next story, will start to unravel some of the mysteries regarding the central plot like the spirit king and the kings key, or the different spirit realms.

If i would compare them to like one piece or hitman reborn, i would definitely rather watch them instead because they actually have pretty good solid plot progression and the story is layered in such a way thats its not just all one sided and revolves around just the action and the battles, there is plenty of nice revelations and surprising twists to be told that keep the story at a relatively good pace

We all know the manga for one piece and bleach have a long ways to go and doesn't show any sign of ending any time soon. But as for the anime adaptation which has been running for a while, thats another story all together. In other words its not really set in stone yet, but its very likely that the anime might be put on hiatus just like bleach, naruto, D gray man, and hitman reborn was either that or enter filler mode. Most likely it will be put on hiatus cause the anime is catching up to the manga.

Naruto has already underwent this change so i don't see it happening any time soon, especially since they have tons of manga material still left to animate. As for the over all manga story, yeah, i would say Kishimoto is almost nearing its end of the naruto manga. But then again, you don't know that for sure, he could very well push the reset button like kubo did and start a completely whole new story line.


Except that with kubo's so called reset button (which i don't feel it was), you still have dozens of plotpoints, important plot points left.

Naruto already entered the "final villain did it all and now his plan comes and good guys try to beat him" phase. He is throwing lore background bits, supposed character development and other stuff through a certain plot-summoning machine and so on. I give it ~70 chapters tops to finish and I am being generous.

Again, this is just my own personal speculations, like everyone else. You hear all the damn rumors bout the 3 big series coming to an end. But honestly we have no full proof of what is going to happen. For one piece, my guess is they will animate the final arc up until "that" plot event. Then it will probably be put on hold until the manga gets further ahead.

Guess how the rumors start?

A guy posts his opinion and speculation without indicating that its just his speculation and not a fact.

Then other guys take that post as total truth and start spreading the news.

Its less possible with plot speculation and stuff, but when it comes to airing times, season renewals and other stuff, people very easily believe any sort of info they find and go "oh hey guys, i just read the 100% proven info about".

As for Op, i doubt it. Going by schedule, its evading of coming to close consists of airing one or two episodes per month, possibly adding fillers and stuff. I so hear that it has been "very near manga" for two years at least.

Yeah i agree that was the most chicle story development in the whole series, suddenly everything culminates together and the whole truth behind the hollows and what all the characters have went through, including ichigo's life even was all part of aizen's plan??

That is a lazy way out. It seems to me like kubo is not planning ahead at all, hes throwing in little sub plots here and there to keep the series going, but the whole thing revolves mostly around just the action and the battles.

As for one piece and bleach, yep you knew this day was coming! Sad really, two of the largest series that have been in production for over 10 years is finally coming to an end!


I am sorry but I got to call bullshit on this.


Bleach manga is only HALFWAY done. And anime is nowhere near ending too.

same with One Piece, no matter my opinion on that thing, TOEI is not going to let go of this milk cow and manga most likely will go and go and go according to mangaka's statements.

Naruto on other hand is in its possibly final arc in manga (hopefully, the horse was dead for way too long for kishi to continue beating it...).

Out of the HST, the first to die will most likely be Naruto, purely because the material will end.


So unless you have some sort of ACCURATE information unknown to anyone else about the lengths of those anime series, please don't spread false rumors.

naruto i dont think will end any time soon. The manga is so far ahead of the anime still and they have plenty of story arcs to animate. They should stay away from fillers for a while. Well now that the story is getting under way again.

Keep your chin up though, there is still two new shonens, fairy tail and Beelzebub that are going to be airing for a while.

I like the manga a lot better than the anime and that's why I stopped watching it. If the anime is really going to end then I'll probably finish watching all of it. I really really hate how they drag on all the fights in the anime.


It's like that in the anime because it was worse in the manga for the last several months. There were a lot of chapters where nothing really happened. It's why the anime caught up so quickly again. There was just so little to actually animate.

Fillers will start at 311
first of the filler ARC will start at 312

312 "Inauguration! The Brand New 2nd Division Captain!"

Bleach 4 ever!! 10/10 series!! Fillers kinda annoying sometimes but fillers fun..

Shippuuden fillers pissing off.. this latest 17ep filler arc epic pissed me off.. anime was long time 10/10 but a bit b4 pain arc and after it it fell 9/10 .. I hope it will go back up.

If bleach ended... It would be like a part of my heart died.
I'm no hard core bleach fan, but I do enjoy it once a week.

Jan 21, 2011 2:48 AM by Bi-bu

Damn it's not going to end? Well, whatever hope you fans enjoy your idiotic filler for another 10 years.

It's bad. Another filler arc will just bring Bleach to a grave. A hiatus would be perfect.


Very true.
But even with fillers in mind,those Anime directors wouldn't know what to add for the fillers. =P
