Borderline posts should be hidden with spoiler tags to maintain a SFW (safe-for-work) environment. Please do not post links or images from Imgur.

Complaints about Dojo rules, Dojo staff members or the Dojo itself on the forum will be hidden and further action may be taken against your account. If there are changes you wish to see, use the Site Feedback & Support board. Topics and posts may be edited or altered by Dojo staff members due to bad formatting. This can include things such as posts typed in capslock or posts that have content that needs to be hidden with spoiler tags. Moderators may delete or hide posts without warning if the post was not worth writing a warning for. If your post is hidden or deleted and you were not notified, it was done so because it broke a simple forum rule and required removal. Questions & Technical Support Misinformation will be hidden.

You will not steal work created by another user. All work must be original unless you are given permission by the original creator of the work to post it on the Dojo. You will not submit mods that infringe on the copyrights of companies (i.e. Sanrio outfits, etc.). You will not submit mods that require users to bypass GameGuard, nor will you that teach users how to bypass GameGuard. Off-Topic Discussion Forum rules #3, #4, #8 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Off-Topic Discussion board. You will not need to use spoiler tags for off-topic posts, including borderline content, memes, macros, etc. Reputation System You will not use the reputation system in a way that shows bias towards specific members. Repeat Offenders We will no longer be using the warning point system. Instead, temporary bans will be issued to repeat offenders. The decision to ban and the length of the ban will be at the moderators’ discretion. Ban Appeals If you feel you were wrongly banned or that you have changed your ways, you can email me through the Dojo’s contact system (found on my profile underneath “Contact Information”). Your appeal will be discussed by the Dojo staff members before a decision is made. Please note, creating additional accounts (“sockpuppets”) to circumvent a Dojo ban will result in a longer ban of the original account and permanent bans of the additional accounts.

It makes sense that the anime is ending. They announced the end of the manga, the series is going to lose its steam.

Not to mention they've dragged it on for so long with random fillers. We don't even know how long this "final" arc will last. Personally I think it should have ended with Aizen, but eh.

They announced the end of the manga via announcing the final arc. There is no final date, but people "know" it's coming. However, people are skeptical as to how long the arc will last.

Some assume will be same as arrancar arc or even longer.

The one thing im disappointed of is that naruto's special "rock lee springtime of youth" will take over bleach's TV screen time, i wanted them to replace bleach with something more serious.. this naruto special is kinda all about the comedy.

LMFAO! A bleach movie? Impossible to be done without it sucking ass. Anyways I was a fan of Bleach but now it's just a anime that has some really cool moments from time to time. I'm not sad to see it go.

Besides it being hollywood that turns it into a movie... i think Bleach is quite long for just a movie. They could turn one of the Bleach movies into hollywood movie but not manga/anime arcs, they are quite long for just a movie. But again who would even want a bleach hollywood movie after all they did so far?

That what I don't like about when they take something long and they turn it into a movie. Like the harry potter books.

The first 2-3 books were not really THAT long but when you get to the other books they really cut out alot of stuff. And then the had the balls to cut the last movie into 2 parts just to milk it. That pissed me off the most

This... Is 100% correct.

After the battle with Aizen, they tried to make something out of nothing. The series should have ended. I'm still reading the manga however. To me, everything after the Battle with Aizen has completely lost it's steam, though I did like the mind f**k that came with Ginjo's battle. But again, I feel that Ichigo should have just killed Aizen, and call it quits.

Hollywood did a live action Dragonball Z movie so I think you can expect more or less the same result with a Bleach movie.

In a earlier interview with Tite Kubo, he said that he'd want the series to run for at least another 10 years[found via sankaku complex]. So taking this in consideration, one can expect the final arc to be quite long. And I honestly hope it will be thorough, and fill in all the fucking holes that were made by coming this far.(because quite a lot have been made, and I'd hate it to end with me still having questions)

I think he said that about two years ago, things might have changed for him. But if that was the case he would have probably announced it. So yeah, the last arc will probably be long.

They are a decent source, they just like wording things lewdly. If I recall correctly, it derived from 2ch and a Jump Fiesta interview.

But DarkWish is right in saying that it was over 2 years ago, so things could have changed.

I quit after aizen, and my friend who kept watching told me this news...

it doesnt really hit me hard, cause for me, bleach was at its finest when they went to save rukia, either way

IMO they messed up big time with :

ishida losing its power to use that armor thing (that was so sick, even I liked ishida at that point)

when the story progresses Ichigo going bankai every 2 seconds but gets owned in 1, then magically appears with a new power and wins in the end anyway

FILLERS, seriously, how many fukin fillers do they need, even after muramasa was killed it kept on going...give us something better

and in the end, they decide ichigo will lose its power after using the final getsuga tenshou. I mean cmon, might aswell quit the anime then..even though i was a big fan before..

eitherway, might watch the last episodes just to close it off 100%

No! No! This series cannot end yet.

Yes, I agree that the series could have ended with the Aizen fight, or that fight to save Rukia was one of the best story arcs. Yes, there may be too much filler. (I actually enjoyed the Muramasa arc, the most recent Mod soul arc was meh, and that whole arc about fake Zanpakuto was a waste of time.)

However…..

There has been a crazy amount of foreshadowing going on in this series. Who is the king of the Soul Society? Who are the members of TEAM 0? Supposedly this team is the king’s personal guard. (Why do they never show up to help when the Soul Society is in trouble? Lol) I have been waiting forever for the story to get into these characters.

I will be so ticked off if the series ends before exploring them.

(I don’t consider myself to be a rabid Bleach fan, but after all this foreshadowing I hope these characters get some air time.)

The manga is not ending yet, so all the remaining questions should be answered in this final arc... hopefully.

This ^, everything was pretty awesome until after the Aizen arc, the story just got pretty lame after that. :sob: .... :cry:
