The story of Bleach deserves a proper burial. The manga ended its 15-year run in 2016, but the anime series wrapped prematurely in 2012. That amounts to four years of unadapted material, and plenty of memorable fights. Bleach fans aren't the only ones who want to see a continuation of the anime series. English voice actor Johnny Yong Bosch, who voices Ichigo Kurosaki, expressed his disappointment with the anime's finale at an anime convention in Greensboro, NC, saying, “[Code Geass] was a great ending whereas Bleach was like, ‘Ummm,' I think there was a little more than that.”

Anime-only fans of Bleach have missed out on a lot of significant stuff from the manga, such as the true powers of Ichigo, the fate of his long-time friends and allies, and which characters end up romantically involved with each other. Until Studio Pierrot finally decides to make one more season of Bleach, getting the fully story requires a little extra reading.
