If you are an Anime fan, you’ll know that the three longest running Anime/Manga so far are Once Piece, Naruto and Bleach. I remember these particular Anime/Manga appearing around the end of my freshman and the beginning of my sophomore year of high school. I’m currently a Senior in COLLEGE. So yeah, these three Titans of the Anime/Manga world have been around longer than many other Anime or Manga in ciruculation since Inuyasha, Dragonball Z, and my favorite Sailor Moon, which is making a comeback with bi-monthly reprints that started earlier this year.
In February, a Japanese Magazine made a small announcement that the Bleach anime series would be ending March 27th, and it set the Internet on fire. People began making theories of what would become of Bleach. Some said it would make a comeback with a slightly different name, like Naruto did when it became Naruto: Shippuden and went forward in time from the events of the former series. Others though, began to slowly accept the reality that the show was really over and instead began the contemplation of how long the manga would last.
(original article from Japan announcing the last episode of Bleach)
Seeing as Tite Kubo, the creator of Bleach, has been saying that the current arc of Bleach in manga format will be the “last arc” there has been no definite date or year that this arc will finish. This is what is leading many to speculate that there will be a small break of non-filler/no air time, before they just pop back up with the LAST season. As of today, two days after the set ending of the show, there have been no reports of the show coming back on air just reminders that the manga is still being released.
The U.S & United Kingdom will probably not begin to see the last arc until about a year or so from now, after it is dubbed. Voice actors Johnny Young Bosch, Stephanie Sheh, Michelle Ruff, Jamieson Price, and the other members of the American cast will assuredly be missed for their roles in such a monumental piece of otaku/anime culture that has made a large impact on the current generation of Anime/Manga lovers everywhere.
While I’m sure some Otaku’s may be reading this, my friends included,wondering whether I’ll give spoilers or my opinion on the last episode I’ll just let you know now that I’m not planning on it unless there is a ‘desperate’ need for my opinion. If you’d like to know what happened in the last episode “google it” and you’ll find many blogs that have posted up a play by play with comments on the last episode.
The last episode of the series Ep. 366 entitled Changing History, Unchanging Hearts is part of the 16th Season, also known as the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc. The arc takes place seventeen months after the teenager Ichigo Kurosaki lost his Soul Reaper powers and meets a man known as Kugō Ginjō who proposes him to recover them.
What are your favorite memories involving Bleach? Whether its meeting with friends in High School or College, what was your favorite arc, or if it helped you through a difficult time go ahead and share with us we want to hear your story?
Earlier this week, we gave you the scoop on two high school students and their nerdy mock fight that got them suspended. Their ten day suspension was followed by a threat from their principal, Raymond K. Broderick, stating that their mock lightsaber duel could cost them being unable to walk at their graduation ceremony. The nerds/geeks of universes from far far away heard about this atrocious action taken, and united with FB pages, and petitions for these students to go back to school.
We’re proud to inform you, that after three days of joined mind-trickery from nerds/geeks everywhere, the principal lifted the suspension after three days and decided to let these silly padwans walk at graduation. Of course, to not look like a completely retarded Sith Lord, Principal Broderick stated,
“Suspensions carry the potential of exclusion from senior activities, including graduation night,” the principal added. “These incidents may have been poor choices on their part, but I am comfortable that they will all go forward and succeed and have learned from this. These are all great kids with super futures, and they understand the consequences of their action,”
I’m sure after hearing this everyone is in agreement that the Principal’s actions have obviously had him eating his own words. I mean come on. These guys had a funny little light saber duel in the cafeteria. They didn’t throw feces around, exploded toilets, or filled the halls with vanilla pudding. They just hit each other with PLASTIC lightsabers! Leave suspension to people who spray paint a nudie portrait on the schools wall, and explode toilets.
We all know high school can be a scary place. You’re at an age where you aren’t sure who you are or where you belong. Hey, we’ve all been there it’s just part of growing up. Having said that, I feel as though I have EVERY right to rip into these silly douchebags with the full force of my insanity- due in part to a hellish high school experience. 🙂 You see how that works?
In my day (high five for sounding old) there were your basic groups Jocks, Preps, Nerds, Goths, Rednecks, and Fat Chicks. (1 guess where I was). I realize I am not “hip” to what the kids are doing these days but, in all of the gayest, gay, gerbil in the asshole things I have done (wait…) and seen other kids do, this is at the top of my “Oh, my fucking god you’re a walking lolz.” list.Wait for it… Teen Werewolves.
Several schools in San Antonio Tx. are reporting groups of teen “werewolves”. A note to parents; If you don’t want your kid to go out of the house looking like a dick perhaps you shouldn’t buy them balls, ya get me? You know what you should see this first hand, OH SNAP! We got a video!
This is pretty much exactly what I have imagined for soo long. Finally, the internet is like high-school! Hmmmm.. Why isn’t anyone pregnant? This makes no sense, I don’t feel secure, I’m not in a safe place.. *Hyperventilates* Wait a second. I’m sure that, from what I’m assuming, girl representing 4chan is pregnant. OH, those 4chan kids, *laughs good naturally at self* they love them some good (insert any crazy, awful, disheartening, sick, twisted, demented, or any-other synonym for disgusting here). But it’s ok. If you’re a regular visitor to 4chan, then don’t worry, it doesn’t mean you’re going to hell. It just means that you’re super creepy and I don’t want you to watch me sleep anymore… Or do I? Other than that, I totally think eBay is blowing Twitter because she has self esteem issues and wants to feel prettier than Last Fm. Facebook is that pure untainted christian girl at the party that everyone is trying to give a rufie. Wikipedia is in love with Facebook, but is too much of a vagina to make a move so he just accepts the friend card and thinks it’s better than nothing.. But it really isn’t. Youtube is trying to get with Last Fm, but his quirky weirdness just makes him the “comedian”. And for some strange fucking reason Last Fm likes Yahoo, the guy’s obviously a loser but has a lot of friends. He’s indifferent because he’s so oblivious to what a vagina actually is. And Myspace is in a ditch dying slowly while drug addicts have their way with him.. Enjoy!
