The month started with Tite Kubo's Bleach manga saying that "The time draws near... when all stories comes to their end... just X more chapters!!" Hisashi Sasaki, the former editor-in-chief of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and the current Vice President for Global Shonen Jump was a lot more specific on Viz's Weekly Shonen Jump Podcast 16, last week mentioning that the series will be ending in 10 weeks.
We already knew the Bleach manga was likely coming to an end for some time now, but now we've actually got what looks like a final ending date. See the manga page that announces it after the jump!
Bleach had already been in its climactic phase. If you're up to date on Tite Kubo's manga, you'll know that it's recently been planting all sorts of "ending soon" flags. Now, an early look at chapter 680 from next week's Jump issue 31 has revealed that the installment opens with the declaration that the supernatural action series will be ending in only [redacted] more chapters.
