Will the ending of the anime be the same as the Manga?
The final arc of the manga was announced to be turned into anime with 4 parts. So far Bleach Thousand Year Blood War Part 1 has been completed and Part 2 is being aired right now. The anime till now has stuck to adapting the manga except for a few filler arcs waiting for the manga to catch up.
These filler arcs were one of the reasons why the anime had such low ratings at the time of its cancellation. This did disappoint the author and fans alike as the manga was leading to better arcs. The Mangaka, Tite Kubo had announced his desire to expand on the original ending of the manga by adding new elements to the anime. Bleach Thousand Year Blood Wars fans can hope for a better fight between Quincy and the soul society.
when bleach anime's return, i just hope the ending is changed… i really fucking hope so bcs the manga was rushed so much that it turns into a bullshits ending

There is still doubt that the original ending will be changed completely, there is a chance that the final fight might be a bit more dragged out to perfection and maybe some characters might receive a better ending. However, fans are still hoping that the ending will be changed and a new satisfying ending will be shown in the anime.
Even if the Bleach anime comes back, there's a low chance that there gonna change anything in the final arc.
The final arc is gonna be the same and the ending is gonna be the same.
I need an example to where an anime changed anything from it's source material in it's final arc
