I don't think it's likely. The studio seemed to have removed any hints towards the next arc which I feel they would've left in if another season or some OVAs were planned to finish the story. Not saying it won't happen, but at the time it didn't seem like they had a plan to continue it.

If they were to end it however, I wish they would've ended it right after Ichigo lost his powers, that part would've made a good ending instead of another season of filler and another season of the fullbring arc (which is basically fliler)

Don't see why it wouldn't.

That ratings in Japan were on the decline. As Bleach wasn't an early AM anime, ratings for it are important and disc sales play second fiddle.

The most recent ranking I've seen for the manga put it in 25th place. Sales over the long term are good, but it isn't the powerhouse it once was.


For Bleach to return would take one of two things:

1. Faith by person(s) in charge that it would perform substantially better in the ratings than before.

or

2. Confidence by the publisher that helping fund a new series would boost manga sales enough to pay for the shortfall between ad revenue and production costs.

Obviously if they waited until the manga concluded, there would be little point to #2, and there seems to be little reason for the faith required for #1.

Yes the ratings did go down. And while discs play second fiddle don't manga sales rank above that? Most of the time as you've mentioned, they have the anime and manga going at the same time because the anime boosts the manga's sales. If the sales were lower near the end of the anime(which I've heard they were, haven't confirmed it though) then they could have been a factor in it's cancellation and if they have been rising back near where it used to be(or at least higher than it was) then I could see it as a good sign for a future anime.

And I believe something that really contributed to the downfall of the ratings and eventually the anime was the filler. While the Japanese are usually more tolerable with filler, I think most people would agree that Bleach's was just horrible and there was too much(like 48%). It was almost 6 months of filler for every 6 months of canon material and most of the filler happened within an arc so it broke everyone's immersion and excitement for the arc when in the beginning of an important fight, it shows the initial clash of swords, and then filler for 6 months. If the filler played a part in the ratings don't you think that when the the possible amount of filler is to the minimum(yet the manga is still publishing), that it's possible that they might be thinking of bringing it back?

I mean, during the Aizen part, like 7 people lost their arms, but in the last arc,


But, seeing as Yamamoto plays a big part in the last arc, after his seiyuu died, I am doubtful it will return. Or, they may return as a homage to him, too.

I don't think a VA dying will decide whether they spend hundreds of thousands of dollars(probably millions) for a series. Many VAs die, they get replaced.

For all those people who are going around saying bleach is not a popular anime clearly are very biased people. You cant determine that the anime isn't popular because it didn't catch your attention and you thought it was stupid. Clearly it was with the top three for awhile for reason. The only reason bleach ever put fillers in was because they would catch up to the manga and would need to throw some sort of series to keep the audience interested in the show. Bleach will most likely return with i'm assuming with 100 episodes more to cover the 1000 year blood war arc. This is am assumption not a fact but kubo will most likely end bleach after the arc.

uhhh... Bleach isn't really as popular as you might think in Japan... maybe outside Japan sure it is popular but the one's doing the anime don't really give a crap about non-Japanese audiences.

But I won't deny the possibility of adapting the rest of the series... maybe when they have enough materials again...

Say what you will about Bleach,

but Rukia's Bankai is freaking gorgeous and I would give a limb to see it animated

I don't think it will come back if there is no appropriate demand, people don't just create anime for no reason, they create because people want to watch it, and Bleach is incredibly unpopular in japan, especially compared to Naruto and One Piece because Ichigo honestly is not a good character and it follows too many shonen tropes without any attempt for originality which is why people don't like it over there.

Pretty much, but it has a chance after the manga ends.

Not sure what ''incredibly unpopular'' means, but it still ran for 8 years non-stop, had 366 episodes and 4 movies. I don't think those are numbers for a show that so unpopular it's... ''incredible''.
