Last few posts;

Kubo man taking  a selfie on twitter:

 

 

If that ranking was to the 5th April, and volume 67 was released on the 3rd April, that will only be 3 days worth of sales if the rankings accommodate close-of-play (5th) which I assume they would given when the rankings are released.

Very, very roughly, if we assume (there's not much else we can do) that the average daily sales are 79,782, then depending on whether we look at a 5-7 day week, we have a very rough estimate of between 400,000-560,000 volume sales. 500,000 sales (give or take) in the first week is about normal for Bleach.

By the same token, the rankings list One Piece as around 1.67 million after 3 days, which would be around 2.7-3.8 million after a 5-7 day week, and we'd expect around 3 million sales for One Piece, so that's about normal, too.

However, One Piece's peak was in 2011. It's been in decline ever since then, and sells half of what it used to sell. That's no more a reflection of One Piece than of Bleach not selling what it sold in its own peak. Not only is it completely natural for long-runners to peak for a short while (relative to its entire run) before decline off again, the entire manga industry is in decline. In fact, Japan's entire book industry is in decline. The manga part of the book industry peaked in 1995 and has been dropping off a cliff ever since. Not even One Piece is immune to that decline, and its dominant position actually makes it more vulnerable than most - its sales have declined far more sharply than Bleach's sales have declined. Again, that does not reflect on One Piece; it's the nature of a declining industry.

 

 

How old is he anyway? Looks like he's starting to get some gray...but I suppose working a mangaka's schedule probably would do that to anyone

 

 

He's 38... he does look a bit old for his age, but he was very sick for a number of weeks which probably took quite a toll on him.

 

 

He's younger than I thought he was. I knew he was in his 30s...

That's even worse.

Mashiro getting punched in the face was one of the most violent moments in the story.

He named a minor, irrelevant character who's probably dead, after his wife?

I'm trolling lol.. I don't know his wife's name.

Anyways bleach ToC rankings are in-

"Bleach ch 616 ranked 11th"

So it's low again smh.. even after ukitake's moment in the spotlight. The Japanese are a very tough crowd. At this point im not sure Grimmjow can get bleach back in the top 5..its been like 2 years since bleach was in the top 5 :(

if they get this arc animated soon, im pretty sure they'll get up there.

though, I've not heard any news about the 2nd coming of the anime and kubo doesn't seem interested.
Agent Smith : Why, Mr. Anderson? Why, why? Why
do you do it? Why, why get up? Why keep
fighting? Do you believe you're fighting... for
something? For more than your survival? Can you
tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it
freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Could it be for
love? Illusions, Mr. Anderson. Vagaries of
perception. Temporary constructs of a feeble
human intellect trying desperately to justify an
existence that is without meaning or purpose.
And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself,
although... only a human mind could invent
something as insipid as love.

Kubo probably wants to focus o the manga, as screwing up the final act could leave a bad taste.

I do hope it gets animated by some great studios, though. Madhouse would be great.

So, when are we going to get any news on his family life?  It's been over two years and we still do not know the name of his wife.
 
At this point, I'm imaging that he might have married Katsura Hoshino.

This made my day. Thanks!

Yea an anime version of this arc will definitely help sales. But Kubo probably doesn't want it back yet. I've always said that at the end of this year I am expecting some major news regarding bleach in 2016. Either.....

1.) The anime was green lighted and is in production.

2.) Some sort of OVA/crossover.

3.) A new art/data book.

4.) Kubo announces that bleach will enter its final year.

Again the more likely ones to occur is #1 and #4 but, we will know around Christmas time.

Maybe they were just taking a year off to build up the financial resources to put some actual effort into the anime. 

 

Rather than having one well animated fight every 15 episodes.

I find theirs soo many directions Bleach could go even after this arc. It's surprising that a series that focuses on life & death hasn't involved Hell at all. Central 46 is a massive mystery still too.
