Hi there. As most Bleach fans will know by now this episode is going to be the final episode for Bleach anime. The show had a remarkable run since it first aired on May 2004. When I first got into Bleach at around episode 12 or so, I didn't think this show will come to enjoy so much popularity. At that time it seemed like this show will not exceed more than 26 episodes, so the moderators were holding back on giving Bleach its own forum. And now here we are. For the last year or so, it has been brutal for Bleach anime in terms of TV ratings. It occupied an afternoon timeslot in the TV Tokyo's anime line up, and yet, the viewer-ship ratings were so dismal that it was being regularly beaten by shows aired in midnight timeslot. It really was a matter of time before Bleach anime came to an end.

The manga is still continuing with the story, so there is still hope for the fans who want more Bleach anime in the future. It may come in the OVA or movie format, or it may even have a revamped second season like Naruto Shippuden. For now, this is the end for Bleach anime.

Absolutely no manga spoilers in any anime-only threads such as the weekly Episode Discussion threads. That means, no hints, or vague remarks about a future event from the manga, even within the spoiler tags. Inability to observe this rule will result in a BAN!

They should end it after Azien arc and restore it again after they have enough manga chapters....

-waits for april fools to hear the "HAha APril fools! We're gonna revamp the 2nd season like Naruto Shippuden! see ya then!"-

Okay episode, but still inclusion of FB (without the fact of restoring Ichigo's power) is ambiguous.

Eragon 2012-03-27 08:47

So, its finally over. *sigh* how many times has it been said already - It would've been so much better if Bleach had gone out with a bang(the Aizen showdown). Instead, it goes out like an old man who's lived too many years for his own good, when nobody but his family members care if he's dead or alive.:sad:
Well be as it may, it was fun till it lasted. And I hope it doesn't get a second season - just not worth it. But I would like an OVA though.

Jerseykid 2012-03-27 09:36

I thought they missed a real chance there at the end, a few seconds of something vague, new, and ominous would have been appropriate. Even if they never intended to follow through.

Kafriel 2012-03-27 10:36

It was fun, while it least most of it :P I really enjoyed the show up to half of the HM arc, and if anything, the anime did an amazing job with most of its filler time.

FlareKnight 2012-03-27 11:00

Well and there it ends. Of course do think the Aizen arc would have been the best point to end it, but this wasn't all that bad. You get Ichigo back into the action and everything pretty much wrapped up. Plus in that fight they actually tried to remember way back to when Ichigo's bankai was supposed to be fast.

It has been a very long run. There have been great times, filler times, and strange times. But overall glad I decided to get into the series years ago since it was worth it.

Jerseykid 2012-03-27 12:12

What about a new series with ichigo's sister and she can learn kido and be trained properly. The fights will hopefully be more interesting because she can do both in battle. We can watch the whole process start to finish. Give them time to come up with some decent new bad guys. Aizen breaks out at some point, get into the soul king, learn more about the world of soul society.

wingdarkness 2012-03-27 12:53

Well atleast the finale wasn't worse than LOST ;/

Lumir 2012-03-27 12:58

Well im really hoping in the future the return of bleach. I really want to see an arc or at least more information on this soul king that aizen was so strongly against. It was a fine ending but they could have hinted at something as sort of a teaser for a second season or something. Oh well only time will tell =).

Good memories with bleach.

ookamigirl 2012-03-27 13:21

There were lots of flashbacks this time..
Not much fighting though. It was more like after battle feelings and stuff.
Relaxed final episode..

Haak 2012-03-27 13:36

Well at least the final episode was decently adapted. They even added in a few extra nuances that make it better, such as the idea that Ichigo came to resign as Shinigami Substitute.

sayde 2012-03-27 13:38

I guess I'll be the first here to say that I personally wouldn't have minded it much if the series ended after the previous filler arc.

Jouten 2012-03-27 14:22

The last episode just proves how much better the Anime is compared to the Manga. Too bad it's going to end. I wouldn't have minded if the Manga ended and the guys who make the Anime were given full control over how the story of Bleach continues.

Maxtro 2012-03-27 14:35

Damn, that's sad.

I've been watching it from the very beginning.

I always thought it was a pretty good so except for the fillers. But it's pretty much always that for these long running shows.

The most recent arc was nothing special and actually felt like a filler.

Excelion 2012-03-27 14:47

RIP Bleach, you had a great run. Watched all 366 episodes since it started in 2004, one of my first animes. Really awesome show. :) I liked all the fillers too except for the Bounts and Sword Beasts. I really think that mostly anime-original episode at the end of the last filler arc would have been good for an ending too, but I digress.

Liked the subtle HitsugayaxHinamori moment there at the end, lol.

motang 2012-03-27 15:04

They should have just ended it after the Azien fight.

sergel02 2012-03-27 16:26

i wish people would stop saying they should have ended it after the Aizen fight. I don't really get why, lots of ppl are happy to see an arc other than aizen animated. ehh, people here complain and whine a lot anyway.

Gonna miss the show, i really enjoyed it for the most part.
