What You Need to Know:
- Bleach is a pillar of the anime community. Much like Inuyasha, Ghost in the Shell, Naruto, and Sailor Moon, many people saw a big name show like Bleach and it was their gateway drug into the world of anime. The manga started in August of 2001 and has enjoyed many successes like a very, very long anime season, live rock musicals, and movies!
- That changes today. It has been announced that the 74th volume will be the final volume of the manga. To put that clearly, the 73rd volume goes on sale today, July 4th, 2016. That means that the 74th volume is currently planned to be released sometime in fall of this year. That's right, Bleach ends this fall! No one is sure yet if that means October or December, but it is coming.
- There were rumors floating aorund the web that it was going to be ending soon but it seems that fans were not ready yet for it to be completed so quickly. The manga has even began a countdown in Jump and has a "x number of times till the finale!" on the final page. What are your thoughts? Are you a Bleach fan? Or did you skip out on this one? Let us know below!

Bleach has 74 Volumes?!?
Really? This is quite a shock!!(´△｀；)
This isn't a joke right?
They should make a gag manga next following this.
Wow... this was approaching almost 20 years? When this started, I was a big Jump fan!
This is an outrage! Sure maybe it's not still on air, but it is still getting musicals and everything and here we are getting new garbage shows! They just don't make them like they used to!
You can't say you did not see this one coming though. It makes sense. A lot of the other major shows have been fading one by one and trying to make room for new ones it seems like but... What now? Ansatsu Kyoushitsu could have been one but it finished!
