Millions of people worldwide are avid fans of the Bleach manga and anime series. The series’ combat system, which results in numerous exciting battles, is a major draw for many fans. Excellent character development and aesthetically beautiful layouts complement this. Its creator, Tite Kubo, completed Bleach’s manga series several years ago.
However, as of this writing, the anime is still airing and is deep into the Thousand Year Blood War Arc. This plot line is highly anticipated because it prominently features the series’ main antagonist, Yhwach. Considering the manga series concluded back in 2016, now seems like a decent moment to do it. The last battle of the series, between Ichigo and Yhwach, is a major event, as is customary for shonen titles.
Has Bleach Manga Ended?
The final chapter of the Bleach manga has been read. The series ended on August 22, 2016, after 15 years on the air. However, fan reaction to the series’ conclusion was divided because so much of the final arc’s action and drama was cut short.
Due to low viewership and manga sales, there were rumors that Bleach had been cancelled. However, the manga’s creator, Tite Kubo, stated in an interview with TBS Radio that the magazine or publisher did not cancel the series.
Instead, it was cut short before its time because of his health problems. Kubo’s commitment to the series and his desire to provide the readers a satisfying ending prompted him to conclude the story earlier than he had intended. The Bleach manga has a particular place in the hearts of its fans despite the abrupt conclusion, and its legacy lives on through numerous adaptations and spin-offs, such as the latest anime version of the Thousand Year Blood War arc.
Bleach has been given fresh life by the recent anime adaptation of the Thousand Year Blood-War arc, which allowed Kubo to insert plot points that he could not write into the manga owing to his health. Not only have new viewers been drawn in, but the anime has reignited the interest of the show’s original audience.

Recounting the Fight Between Yhwach and Ichigo in Bleach
Yhwach revealed something to Ichigo Kurosaki about The Almighty during their final climatic battle. Yhwach can use this power to look into the future and alter things to his liking. Yhwach was absorbing Ichigo’s Hollow and Quincy energies while his Bankai crumbled. He then slaughtered Jugram Haschwalth and Gerard Valkyrie. Orihimwe could not restore the Tensa Zangetsu to normal by using her powers. What happened next was the most shocking aspect. Shukuro Tsukishima stabbed Ichigo.
An enraged Ichigo reacted angrily as the Fullbringer pierced him in the shoulder with Book of the End. He soon explained that Orihime had acted in this way to resurrect the Tensa Zangetsu. With his sword, he could erase his existence from people’s records. Shukuro uses The Almighty to change the past such that the Tensa Zangetsu was never broken, just as Yhwach did with The Almighty to influence the future. This enabled Orihime to restore the Tensa Zangetsu using her Soten Kisshun.

Ichigo’s sanity and Tensa Zangetsu were revived, so the epic battle from the Bleach series could continue. Aizen battled alongside Ichigo against Yhwach. When a little fissure sprang up, he nearly shattered the Tensa Zangetsu once again. Together, Aizen and Ichigo open up a space for Ichigo to use his Getsuga Tensho and kill Yhwach. Things, though, would not be so simple. Yhwach revived himself with The Almighty, one of the most potent techniques in Bleach.
It’s easily, EASILY the worst bleach arc outside of the monster of the week stuff at the beginning of the series.
Arc completely stands still when Yhwach or Ichigo aren’t doing anything, boring fights, too much exposition, contrivances everywhere, I could keep going

The protagonist of Bleach was in a lot of trouble. Yhwach admitted that he was able to rewrite his own death by altering the past. But then something bizarre occurred. When Uryu Ishida’s Still Silver arrowhead touched Yhwach’s blood, it drained the antagonist of his abilities. This allowed Ichigo to attack Yhwach, who attempted to break the Tensa Zangetsu entirely. The fact that Ichigo’s Shikai was still pristine despite the white crumble startled him.
The main character of Bleach impaled and killed Yhwach. Jugram Haschwalth, leader of the Sternritters, gave him a vision of Yhwach’s destiny, which he recognized in his dying moments was more than a vision.
The antagonist gave up on his attempt to unite all dimensions and accepted his fate. Finally, the manga wrapped up with dialogue between the protagonists and antiheroes. Finally, readers were introduced to Kazui Kurosaki, Ichigo and Orihime’s son.
