Anime Spoilers, Manga spoilers a little.  
Hey Guys! I have some spoilers, I think we know a few but this has a tad bit of greater detail- if all of this has been posted just lemme know and I'll take it down but please discuss :D


  • Arrancar arc will end by mid 2010.
  • A short arc will follow.
  • After that, a much longer arc will begin.


  • There is a mini-filler arc scheduled to run after the Zanpakutō Unknown Tales filler arc
  • The new arc is about Zanpakutō vs beast swords(剣獣), the tag line that goes with it is that "The main enemy of the the Shinigami are Hollows, the main enemy of the Zanpakutō are beast swords".
  • Beast swords are said to be Zanpakutōs that have killed their Shinigami masters and have gone out of control
  • Manga based episodes are to be relaunched on the April 13th 2010.
We knew the manga ones, well I knew there were 2 arcs, I'm presuming this small one is going to be like the world of the living segment of the arrancar arc, not too long. The longer arc intrigues me, will it mean longer as in winter war xbox hueg arc, or does it mean soul society pretty huge arc, but not so big there are 2 filler arcs just for it... I'm hoping this longevity doesn't result in the story becoming VERY trashy, but I'm happy because yaaaay Bleach.
I'm hoping for a backstory arc personally, Isshin Kurosaki, Ryukken Ishida, The Espada's history, also many more shikais/bankais revealed.

Anime now. I was looking forward to the manga episodes but another filler. Luckily this one is much shorter than the Zanpukato Unknown Tales Arc which has gone on since late august (?). But come on beast swords? Pleeeeeaaase, be more original writers. The first thing I noticed when I read this was that Muramasa stated he killed his shinigami master (later proving to be a lie), but I feel they just thought "eh, lets do this then." If I recalled correctly this will be the first filler season to directly follow a filler season. 

Anyway please discuss, and whatever really :D

Actually I've been enjoying the Zanpakuto arc and would be interested to see more of them. It's the best filler they've had so far and is actually interesting. Although it'd be strange if the Zanpakuto continued being in their physical forms for a long period of them... but I'm looking forward to it anyway, I'm probably one of the few people here who is currently enjoying the anime more than the manga.

After that, a much longer arc will begin.
Somehow while I look forward to that as well, the being 'much longer' kinda makes me dread it a little.

I have too, actually the first few eps felt like an epic movie to me! I'm just a manga lover, and was looking forward to the manga episodes returning. I like both really, manga more so because the bount arc and shusuke amagai put me off the anime alot :( though they made up for up with nelliel awesomeness

Nell is awesome~ The only issue I have with the arrancar arc is that because it's got so much action I'd rather see it animated, so I'm looking forward to the return of the manga arc too =3

I agree with you, I'm enjoying the anime quite a lot, especially with the developments in the latest episode.

But then again I am speaking with character bias, as someone that likes secondary characters over mains, with the next canon anime arc being Ichigo-centric, I do prefer seeing the zanpakutou and some of my favourite shinigami. Plus I am having a blast looking into people's characters by their reflected personalities in their zanpakutou.

Of course the manga is at an interesting climax, but again, character-biased, haha.

If this arc is only set to stay til June-ish, does that mean Gin moves on with Aizen into the next arc? Or will he be finished off before that I wonder.

Well we were supposed to get filler episodes for a full broadcast year, October 2009 - October 2010. That date came from some of the seiyuu for zanpakuto saying they were going to be working Bleach for a year. Damned if I can remember where I read that, but I always knew it was going to be a year of fillers.

I was actually wondering how much more they could squeeze out of the current zp story arc. To see that they're essentially doing a part 2 of it, doesn't bug me much. Though... part of me wishes they'd do arrancar zanpakuto, but that'd be arrancar/hollow filler. Then again, that's alright by me.

Yeah I would LOVE an arrancar filler arc!

Oh, is that where that rumor originated? I'd never heard it from anyreliable source, and thus never had any faith in it (and thankfully it proved false. Fillers will only run seven months)

There was no precedent to a 52 episode filler. Bleach has never done it before, and the animators couldn't have believed they could keep the fans hyped for the zan arc that long. Just look at how much enthusiam for it died in the past four months alone.

I've quite enjoyed the Zanpakuto Arc. Because I don't know the story it's stayed pretty interesting (even at it's worst) and there have been some truely great moments in it (Byakuya vs. Kouga for starts). I don't tend to follow the Bleach anime too closely, but I've been hooked on this.

But I am excited to see the Lust arc animated!
riolulz: caramelldansen bleach~riolulz on January 14th, 2010 08:38 pm (UTC)
Yeah it actually was interesting, though I'm sad we didnt get too see more of Tobiume & Haineko vs Yoruichi.

Me too, even though the anime will drag it on for about 48927482897287 years XDD
Ananomoreprinces on January 14th, 2010 09:04 pm (UTC)
That Byakuya vers Kouga fight was stunningly and wonderfully animated. I haven't seen that much dynamic motion since the Ichigo/Grimmjow (the 2nd one and vs Pantera!Grimmjow)

I've been enjoying the Zanpakuto arc (Sode no Shirayuki! Senbonzakura! Hyorynmaru!) and I prefer another filler arc now rather than have a cut later in the middle of a fight or something… but, yeah, at the same time can’t wait to watch the Lust arc animated (hope they do a good job)
candy_003candy_003 on January 14th, 2010 09:33 pm (UTC)
I'm not very excited about either news bits... Meh :/
arcadianbliss: byakuyaarcadianbliss on January 15th, 2010 03:28 pm (UTC)
I love the Zan arc but I can't bear to have so much filler, sigh): Plus part of my love for the Zan arc was due to it incorporating lots of Byaaaaaaaaa<3 Whoa. Does this mean the end of Aizen? I doubt it rightt...more like something happens and they move on elsewhere to fight. If the series doesn't end with Aizen demise, I suspect alot will give up watching right after they see Aizen finished. :S
But what lies ahead might still be a dream: agonyexistence_proof on January 17th, 2010 06:22 am (UTC)
April 13th?? I have to wait for 3+ months for the epic battle animated?? Nooooooo ;A;

>Arrancar arc will end by mid 2010.
A short arc will follow.
After that, a much longer arc will begin.

Its great that it'll end at mid 2010, then I won't need to panic abbout missing anything during my finals then, but not sure if I should be happy about the longer arc... ==
