This year's 10th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that Tite Kubo's Bleach manga is entering its final story arc.
Bleach is finally ending? Maybe now I'll be able to finally catch up.
My advice: don't. I "caught up" once I learned the Aizen arc was finally over. It's a trainwreck, getting worse and worse with each new chapter. I've read a lot of manga--hundreds, thousands of titles--and I've got to say, Bleach is by far the worst. Pretty art--awful, bottom-tier writing.
I've heard it gets worse the farther along you go, but I'm really just starting from the beginning as I refused to get into Bleach or Naruto for a while. I happened to check out the beginning of Bleach and ended up liking it, but I still refuse to get into Naruto. Where should I stop with Bleach? Or should I even continue at all?
Tuxedo Mask, you should continue. Bleach is a fun manga in all honesty. It's by far the worst written manga in Jump right now, but thats because hes poorly copying another mans better work and calling it his own (Yu Yu Hakusho by Yoshihiro Togashi). But all in all, Bleach is fun and even though I often see many stupid shit and lapses in logic in Bleach, I still enjoy it.
come on, it's all according to aizen's plan!
@Tuxedo mask Dont do it, if you must end it in soul society and look for something else, writting is pretty poor like botton of the barrel poor. The writter doesnt know what to do with the characters, but since the manga is or was making money he didnt end it.
They will likely end up continuing this arc for 5 or 6 years. I mean the Aizen arc took over 4 years to finish so if this is the ending arc then it will likely take forever for it to finish.
I bet this is just to get more people interested in he manga.
Just let it die already!
This is the death of it, you should be happy. I am, I love Bleach, but I'm really happy that it the final arc has been announced because it's kinda gone down hill lately in the anime. So I'd prefer a good ending.
Agreed. Soul Society arc rocked. It was nothing short of awesome, but after that ended, it's like Kubo stopped caring.
