It's all wishful thinking from here on out.


I kind of agree, yet at the same time I'm going to disagree for Kubo's sake. He's left so many loose ends it would be shitty of him to just leave them there.

The loose ends tie themselves up if you think deep enough, the show is a lot more complex than they get credit for.
The Grim one has passed on.
Start wetting your pallets for Urahara.....

Grimm-Yow is dead and gone, he fought his hardest already, it's over like all the other espadas. Unless Kubo wants to make a story for upcoming espada in hueco mundo

He looks alive to me. Orihime was about to heal him and then that emo guy kidnapped her. There are so many plot holes in this series. Poor Kubo.

As of now, One piece and Naruto's story lines are better than bleach. My opinion

I can not see him dying and if he did i dont know what TK was thinking, i think he is off healing some where. I can just see him coming back while the final fight is happing with Aizen and him just kicking butt with ichigo. He may or may not die there but i can just see him doing it.

I thought Nnoitora killed him? I hope he isn't dead because Grimmjow is the best!

It is unconfirmed if he's dead. Since he was voted as the 4th highest in one of the population polls, I'm pretty sure he'll make a return soon.

According to several matching reports from 2chan, Grimmjow's death is official. In his interview in the Jump Festa, when Masakazu Morita (Ichigo's VA) brought the arrancar arc into question and why it lasted for so long, Tite Kubo (Author of Bleach) revealed that Grimmjow is dead, and that he was actually supposed to die earlier in the series. It was the fans support that kept him alive for so long.

The japanese reports confirming Grimmjow's death:

自分の記憶の範囲で、ステージ補足。
My own’s memory
森田か折笠の、「今全体のどの辺ですか?」という質問に対し、
Morita/Oririn’s question “As of this whereabouts?”
「半分は超えている」と師匠。
“Past halfway.” Answers sensei.
それに対して「少なくても10年は続きますね」と言ったのは森田
Then in that case [It needs at least 10 more years to continue.” Said Morita.
破面編が予定より長くなったという事に対して、
As regards to matter that arrancar arc was longer than as planned.
「じゃあ、予想外に活躍したキャラはいますか?」と森田がきくと、
Then in that case, character’s unexpected activities were put in there? Morita asked.
「グリムジョー。もっと早く死ぬつもりだったんだけど、描いてたら
勿体無くなったんで、活躍させた」と師匠
I planned Grimmjow to die earlier, but when I drew it, I saw there was no emphasize at all, so I added activities to it.” Said sensei.

Grimmjow isn't dead he's just incapacitated after he took much damage after Ichigo defeated him and shortly after he was stabbed by Nnoitra

Well, from what we last saw of Grimmjow he was indeed still alive, but just barely (since the databook mentioned he was on the verge of death)... My opinion is that Grimmjow did die, but Kubo gave it later on as a retconned event.

I'm still not entirely sure why Kubo went through the trouble to show us that Grimmjow was still alive right after a chapter that we could have very well assumed he was actually killed, but my rough guess is that, at that time during the Nnoitra/Ulquiorra/Yammy fights, Kubo (apparently) felt like keeping Grimmjow around for some possible use in the future, either to pay his debt to Ichigo and open a garganta for the nakama to escape (since Aizen had sealed all the gargantas in HM), or just help in the fights.

Kubo never clarified whether Grimmjow survived or not, because (imo) Kubo himself didn't know whether he would actually apply more development on Grimmjow or not. So, since Kubo is indesicive and kinda wary of how such a risky development would play out in the general plot, he simply compromises to leave Grimmjow's fate in an aura of ambiguity so in the future he can either announce "He's alive" or "He's dead". Only Kubo knows what really happened to Grimmjow, and since the fans can't say for sure whether Grimmjow survived or not, Kubo has the upper hand in case he finally decides to pick either scenario (dead/alive). Kubo played things quite smartly, so no one accuses him for "killing" Grimmjow because he was surely "alive", but at the same time no one can accuse him for "reviving" Grimmjow because he was surely "dead".

However, Kubo doesn't get the chance to fit Grimmjow anywhere, either because the Hueco Mundo arc had already dragged way too longer than what he had originally planned, or because he deemed that bringing Grimmjow back would create even more inconsistencies (Nobody healed Grimmjow--> how did he survive?) Those sort of authorial hesitations.

So, Ichigo gets to KT, he defeats Aizen, arrancar arc is over, but Grimmjow's possible role never comes to play. Eventually Kubo realizes that at this late point Grimmjow can't possibly contribute to the plot in any way possible, so he decides that Grimmjow is dead. There wasn't any clear indication that Grimmjow was even remotely dead after Nnoitra blindsided him. Kubo just left it at that, "Grimmjow is there, lying on the sand, saved by Ichigo." So, what can Kubo do to change his own mess?... However, the 2nd character databook comes out, having scene clarifications and interviews regarding matters in the Hueco Mundo arc, and it's covering the events up to Nnoitra's death. Perfect opportunity for Kubo to throw us the first hint for what happened to Grimmjow.

"Nnoitra mocks the dying Grimmjow."

That's just it. Nnoitra incapacitates Grimmjow, but in addition to the events we were already aware of (Grimmjow being heavily wounded), Kubo also adds the word "dying". And the fans start to fret because it's actually happening--> Grimmjow is dying. It's the first indication that Kubo has made up his mind, now implying Grimmjow's actual death, and unfortunately, in retcon (off-panel). No death scene, no flashback, just an altered past event because of Kubo's neglectful writing.

On top of that, here comes the Jump Festa interview, which, in my opinion, Kubo intended to ultimately hint Grimmjow's death.

Kubo: I planned Grimmjow to die earlier...
(Fans: Thanks a bunch Kubo...)

I can safely say that Kubo's giving progressively heavier blows on Grimmjow's death in these 4 years, so, going by these "progressive blows", I'll make a prediction for Kubo's next interview that involves Grimmjow.

Kubo: Grimmjow is dead.

I could go as far to call Kubo incompetent for treating his characters like that, because it actually shows that the arrancars were total fodder and could turn dispensable at any time Kubo had a whim. *sigh*

That was an excellent analysis. I think you wrapped things up pretty well.
