Will "Bleach" Anime Return, and When?

Did Bleach the anime end permanently?

If you are here reading this article, you probably know everything you need to know about Bleach and want to know only one thing - and that is why Bleach anime ended at episode 366 and will they continue making it. Will Bleach anime return?

Bleach manga is ongoing - it has been coming out in Weekly Shonen Jump in Japan since August 2001 and is still being published weekly to this day. That means it is already coming out for over 12 years, and as of August 2013, Bleach manga has been compiled into 60 tankobon volumes which can be purchased all at once. Impressive, right? It sure is.

The animated television series (or to be simple, the anime) came out three years after the first publication of the manga in 2004 and has been keeping us entertained until its episode 366 that came out in 2012. This franchise also has four animated feature movies and two video games, as well as a sea of merchandise that involves action figures, sword replicas and a lot of other things. Everything for the fans, right? Well, yes, except for the continuation of the anime.

So what exactly happened with Bleach the anime?

All we know for sure is this - after episode 366 that was shown on 27th of March 2012, Bleach the anime series was cancelled. That was the last episode that was aired on TV Tokyo.

Why was Bleach cancelled?

Bleach the anime was cancelled and that is all we can know for sure. Episode 366 was the last episode to air, and whether we will see another episode of this anime remains to be seen. However, there are a lot of rumors and speculations about the matter.

The primary question that we will try to answer in this part of the article is why Bleach was cancelled in the first place. There are several theories, but the most likely one is that Bleach the anime was cancelled simply because it was sub-par.

Let's first see what people are saying regarding this before we agree with this statement, though. There are two main opinions about the anime end at episode 366.

  • Bleach was sub-par and it had too many fillers

Let's view this from an objective angle. Bleach is one of the titles that can be regarded "the holy manga/anime trinity", along with Naruto and One Piece. Now, we all know that these anime shows are filler abundant, but in this aspect, Bleach indeed takes the cake. Why? Well, in comparison to Naruto and One Piece, that did have their respective shares of filler episodes, Bleach had filler seasons. For instance, the Zanpakuto arc in Bleach anime was literally a filler season. It did not happen in the manga.

Bleach is considered to be sub-par because almost half of the episodes were fillers, and some people were not satisfied with it quality-wise and considered the manga to be far superior.

  • Bleach anime stopped because it was catching up with the manga

Another group of Bleach fans believes that Bleach ended temporarily at episode 366 because it was catching up with the manga, so they had to stop making new episodes and take a break. This seems to be a bit further from the truth, actually, as this break has been going on for over a year and the anime still did not continue where it left off.

Considering that there is enough manga material that the Bleach anime had not covered, we would have expected it to have restarted sooner. But then again, if they do want to avoid filler episodes, waiting is a prudent choice.

The ominous facts

The main fact that needs to be mentioned immediately is that when this anime show ended, not a single person that was somehow involved with the making of this series mentioned that it will ever be continued. This immediately implies that any theory discussing the return of Bleach the anime is a bit far-fetched and revolves around a hopeless dream that the show WILL continue.

However, let's not be too hasty and agree with this.

Several shows in situations that awfully resemble the situation of Bleach anime have resurrected and started airing again. This is again a fact. In fact, if we think about it, most of these shows were not announced when they continued, and this was a great factor in the resurrections of their respective franchises. When we think about it from the marketing perspective, this is a brilliant solution to pull out a popularity-declining show from the mud.


More facts - and possibly good news for the anime

It has been confirmed that Tite Kubo is working hard on the final arc of the Bleach manga. Some fans are speculating that it is exactly because of this that the anime is on hiatus (and has not been cancelled) and that it might take some time for it to restart, but it most definitely will. Again, these are all assumptions, but they do make some sense.

Think of it from a marketing perspective again - if the anime started getting a lot of bad reviews it would make sense to call the gig off and end it right there. Temporarily or permanently - it's hard to say, but it's most likely the former. If something gets bad reviews, it needs to vanish from sight temporarily for two reasons and those are: 1. to be missed and to rebuild fandom and 2. to have enough time to rethink it and revamp it accordingly.

Bleach was by no standards a stereotypical anime and it had a lot going for it - a lot of these things can still be cashed in. Which brings us to the next part.

Can Bleach anime still earn?

Money is always a thing to consider in issues like show cancellations. For instance, it is pretty safe to say that the Bleach anime took a lot of money to make, but also earned quite a bit. Now, if the show was plummeting in popularity before the famous last episode 366, it would be logical to cut your losses and end it while you still can.

However, if the demand increases enough, and it is increasing substantially, there would be good reason to return the show once the hype builds up enough. And when will the hype build? To be fair, it s hard to state anything with certainty, but the final arc IS coming soon.

Would it be logical to just end with it once the manga is done and miss out on a really good opportunity to earn more with the anime? Or a better question, when you think about it. Do people want Bleach the anime to return? Yes. And there you have it - potential audience.

Do you think Bleach the anime will continue and when?

See results

To conclude

A lot of fans speculate that Bleach the anime will return sometime in the end of 2014 or during 2015, and this is mainly because the manga is supposedly nearing its end. If this should happen, we could expect to see a lot of people happy. However, there is still that distinct possibility that when this anime was cancelled, it was done so after a lot of elaborate consideration. Not announcing its continuation may not be a marketing ploy - which would make the episode 366 really the last one.

Anyway, if you enjoyed this article and would like to read more about anime, you can always read some speculations of when Naruto will end.

As for Bleach - only time will tell, but the odds seem to be slightly in its favor. It only remains to wait and see.

      I never really got into anime much but Bleach turned that around for me and now that I've watched every episode I find myself only wanting more. I really hope they bring it back to life sometime. My girlfriend and kids and I all watch it together. There isn't another show we have found in any category that all of us like well enough for the whole family to get into.

      Bleach is life 5 weeks ago

      I feel I speak for everyone when I say bring bleach back it is inspirational and just very interesting to see how the characters rolls play out and I myself have to say that I want to see where ichigo's life ends up and I think the ending of episode 366 is a big slap in the face to all of us Bleach anime and manga fans and I feel like it could have ended better I mean how are you going to end it with each go saying goodbye to Rukia and all of his combatants only to have Rukia say that it's not the end that they will meet again if you're going to up and cancel the series completely when obviously at that point in time you leave it wide open for start of a new series and if you don't it would be bad for profits for the fact being you left it wide open and not to act upon it would only and in everyone losing interest if you would continue the series so in my personal opinion if you are planning on continuing the series the perfect time would be now because there is no time like the present and I felt like the present time calls for bleach to continue bleach has a Legacy and I feel like the Legacy should live on and the start of a new era should begin now so once again for all of our bleach fanatics and viewers alike bring bleach back and do what you guys do best and just produce a long-running legacy of the bleach universe please and thank you and I hope that I could sway your decision and I truly and deeply hope that you bring bleach back once again

      Well, I honestly believe that it's the ''bleach catching up to manga'', they wouldn't just cancel it because there were too many fillers, I mean, look at the other animes, like Naruto for example, they have a lot of fillers, but they never canceled it.

      It cannot be a money issue. Being that Bleach was the most popular anime, how would it be that they were losing money with the largest fan base where Naruto kept going. Pokemon kept going. Yu-gi-oh kept going. All the crappy anime shows kept going, yet Bleach, with all its merchandise, shows, manga, and commercial values, just stopped. I personally cannot thing of a logical reason it ended like it did and has yet to come back after 5 long years and no news of any continuation. I hate to say it, but Bleach may be gone forever.

      Chances are the anime went on brake not for the manga, but for the upcoming live action film which i believe the same company that makes the anime is infact producing which would take up time

      There are two logical reasons for the series to return.

      1. They truly never fully explained all the noble families, especially the most powerful first family. These storylines kept the hype up for the bleach series and is the backbone. Fans will not be happy until they fully understand all of them and not just two.

      2. Aizen is a very cunning foe and most fans know that his arrest is just a part of his plan to overtake the first noble family. There is probably more than one way to make the key and the other way is hidden from all of them, including three of the noble families. There has to be a hidden book that only few can reach. The only way to get the book is to make sure that all eyes are off of Aizen. That allows them, those who secretly follow Aizen, to finally get that book while their guard is down. It is just too easy for him to give up yet, he is just too cunning.

      now, Bleach is one the greatest and somehow one of the most popular animated mangas in the whole world !! when the anime has been made untill episode 366 and put it in the webs to watch (for eveyone), it means you have to be responsible instead of all that people. I, am one of those thousand people who is a big fan of this anime. and unfotunately there is NO mangas to buy (at least legally) in my country and I hardly can even watch my favorite anime: Bleach. so my question is just this: What can I do ?!

      Dont you think its about time to continue this anime... after all these years and people still watch the show more fans are still growing for the series, almost any anime lover will tell you that bleach was something they watched fanatically. Understandable they already put in a lot of effort compared to other series.. only lasting 12-60 episodes .. with occasional exception like Naruto / SAO / Dragon Ball / Magi etc ... they put an AMAZING 366 episodes of pure gold. I have never desperately wanted an anime back so bad in my life and I have waited years to hear the word of its return. If anyone reading this is involved with its franchise I implore you, please for all of us. Help get it running again.

I have gone through every single one of these comments word for word letter by letter and i know how passionet some of you guys are about Bleach but plz at least try to move on i mean, life is not an anime or manga even if you were to belive that Bleach were to come back with as much enthusiasm as Ichigo does when trying to protect his friends it might not come back.

      Bleach the anime really needs to come back. It's been gone for way too many years. I just finished the Bleach anime series a few minutes ago, and I've heard from my friend about the Quincy arc. I want to see it in the anime. It would feel weird, switching to the manga after 366 episodes of Bleach. I wouldnt have the same feel for it as it wouldn't be how I was used to seeing Bleach. I'm really interested to go read the manga, to continue the story. Honestly though, it needs to be brought into the anime series. I need to see the Bleach series proper end. I just hope someday, the company that made the series, including Tite Kubo, bring the final Bleach arc into the series. I'd do anything to have thelat accomplished.

      Well I haven't counted the fillers in Naruto and Bleach but I can't see Bleach having considerably more. Also like some others here I have really not like Naruto fillers in the past where often they r just pointless short stories, which often take place in the past. I really didn't mind how they did fillers in Bleach tbh, I think turning them into a proper story arc was quite creative and gives viewers like me to keep watching.

      I am really hoping that once the manga has finished (which I don't read sadly as I am purely an anime fan) that they bring it back as then like some theorised they could show it all without the need for fillers as well.

      dont understand how theres still nobody willing to animate this. bleach may not be a the peak of its popularity at the moment but seeing as we are now in the final fight and really close to the end, the hype will start to build up again. if an anime is not released before sometime after the manga's end that hype will be gone. therefore i really hope some company decidec to pick it up right around the shows end so we arent left with a big gaping hole between the manga end and anime release

      Tite Kubo wanted the anime to end since the fans are waiting for the anime instead of his manga, there are supposedly 2 more arcs before the Quincy Arc then the final arc, but Kubo cut it after Xcution and went directly to Quincy, stupid old man, even faked his own health condition to get more attention from the fans, Bleach was supposed to be on the level of OnePiece and Naruto but Kubo's selfishness caused Bleach it's popularity to go downhill

      Bleach better come back...it was the only thing that kept me happy during the time when nothing when right and took my mind off the shit called 'life'. Heck, I'll even go as far as to say that I didn't commit suicide only because of Bleach, so....

      The manga is amazing, the anime will be too.

      I love Bleach! I first watched Naruto and thought it was the best anime ever but then I watched Bleach... And Bleach stole my anime loving heart forever! Up until today Bleach is still my favorite.

      As for the issue of fillers... Although Bleach had a lot of fillers and they spanned over a season, it wasn't that bad, I actually enjoyed some of it especially the Zanpakutō: The Alternate Tale. Many of Naruto's fillers are even more pointless than Bleach's fillers and don't let me get started on all the flashbacks that was utterly meaningless and just way to fill the time and get an episode out there.

      In my opinion if they bring Bleach back it will probably happen after the manga ends. But my fingers are crossed for it to come back someday... I'll still be waiting.

      No the anime currently is ended at episode 366. Until they decide to bring it back (Possibly when manga is finished) there will be no more episodes

      I love bleach, a big fan in fact heck I even have a Kisuke hat.

      I finished the final episode of bleach (Episode 366) about an hour or two ago then I jumped online to see if they really are going to bring it back. I do think it hinted at a return with Ichigo saying " See ya around" at the end of the anime and earlier in the episode he says to Rukia "When I say see you around it doesn't mean this is our last goodbye. I'll see you again, don't worry about it."

      So this could be a hint at the return of it. I say we wait until the manga is finished then we will see what happens.

      For those that say that the order of the anime are different, sir/miss you are ignorant of the situation, Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece are all made by Shonen Jump. They each had an amount of fillers but honestly fillers are not that bad, it's like a break, to see some other stories you didn't know about, or too see the characters personal life for a change for one episode. For example near the end of the Bleach anime they had the New Years episode, it put my mind at ease and see how most of the characters enjoy there time flying kites and having a hilarious competition at the same time. Also it is almost 2015, I would love a return of bleach, but all we can do is hope, the author of this article did make some key points about it, and reasons why it might not come back, so entirely the outcome of this is a 50/50 on Bleach's return.

      I really want it back, I am a toshiro hitsugaya lover and I would gladly like to see more of him. Ichigo is alright although I don't mind him much even if he is one popular main character.
