One of the biggest rumors around about Bleach’s demise involved an alleged dispute between Shueisha and Tite Kubo. Due to the decline in sales of the manga, in fact, the publisher would have suddenly pushed the sensei to conclude the work in a handful of chapters, but not without arousing some controversy.
Today we know that Bleach’s conclusion was rushed due to health problems of the author who, at the end of the Millennial War Saga, began to suffer the blows of a long serialization. However, recently during an interview with Viz, Tite Kubo returned to the subject to clarify an important point.
