Bleach: Will this anime ever be back for its final arc?

Bleach has been a long-going series, the manga started back in 2001 and the anime in 2004. I suppose most of you already know what the series is all about since you're reading whether or not it'll come back, but just to elaborate a bit. Bleach tells us the story of Kurosaki Ichigo, a kid with the ability to talk and interact with ghosts. After a series of events, he ends up as a Shinigami, fighting for good and killing the bad guys as any other hero.

It has been a successful series overall until recently, since the anime had to be cancelled (manga is still going), even when the final arc of the series has started. As always, there has been a lot of speculation on whether the anime will be back or not. The most logical response so far is Yes, although it could be wrong. Why? Well the reason it had to be cancelled was because fans were tired of fillers (the series has A LOT of fillers), so maybe they're simply waiting for the manga to end, in which case they could produce the anime with the story and nothing more, thus eliminating the rating problems. If this were to be the case, then the anime would be out for a few years probably, so the manga can finish the story, or at least be close to it.

Of course, we can't rule out that it actually may be the end of it, but it doesn't seem like a logical move to not animate the final and most exciting arc of the series. At the end of the day, they have the final word and hopefully we'll have some official news in the near future.

Update: There's been a rumor circling around the web about Bleach's comeback this March 22, 2013. It all started back in December 2012, because of a twit sent by none other than Tite Kubo, pretty much confirming that initial statement about the anime coming back. Then again, people around the web keep taking it with a grain of salt, considering it hasn't been completely confirmed so far, meaning, it's still just a rumor, and it will probably remain that way considering it's been a little over a month since this twit was seen and we still haven't seen any other piece of information about it, other than opinions.

Do you think Bleach's anime will be back?

For the record, it IS back on. I don't watch it anymore, because it just got so long because of the fillers (as you stated). However, I do love your hub because it is anime related.

Hmm I've been looking around and I haven't been able to find anything official about Bleach coming back... Could you perhaps link the site where you read about it? Yeah I know, fillers took over for so long, but such is life. Thanks for your comment. :)

Oh, I didn't even think about it not being aired in different countries. Sorry! It's available in the United States but I don't know about you or your location. I'll try to see if I can find some links with the new episodes. I only saw new episodes just recently(and those damned fillers...as you said, such as life).

*sigh* I couldn't find it. I suppose the 'new' episodes I saw was prior to the announcement, of which I didn't hear of. Oh, well. I'm sorry. :(

Aww no worries, it's okay. I appreciate you taking the time to look into it. :)

Hopefully there'll be some official news at some point this year. Oh and by the way I admire you lol - your writing makes me happy and sad at the same time (since I can't write like you do D:), but anyway keep up the good work!

Aw. Come on. I'm sure...no, I know...you can write. Practice makes perfect my friend. All you have to do is write your heart out, as one of my followers told me.

Thanks for the compliment, though.
