Bleach anime is all set to return after four years and we could see season 17 of the show releasing this year. Fans of this extremely popular manga-based anime were disappointed when the show ended after 16 seasons in episode 366. The makers had no option but to cancel the show as they ran out of the source materials due to a highly paced anime version taking over the manga storyline.
But Tite Kubo, the manga illustrator has been writing out new volumes of Bleach which are enough for the show to return. While nothing has been confirmed as of now, Bleach anime is highly speculated to return with a new release date after the huge fan demands.
Fans are demanding Bleach Anime to Return
Fans of Bleach anime and manga started a petition on chnage.org asking for the return of the show. They have been also supporting the creators by buying out Bleach merchandise so that the required funds for animating the story can be gathered.
