Nisekoi and Bleach to end in Shonen Jump’s August double issue

Over the past couple of months, Bleach and Nisekoi have had their approaching endings heavily teased, but with no concrete details as to when their last chapters would run. That is, until now. With an early peek released for next Monday’s (August 1st) issue of Shonen Jump, it’s been revealed that the following week’s 36-37 double issue will hold the final chapters for both series. Tite Kubo’s last entry for Bleach and Naoshi Komi’s end to the False Love story will each get colour pages, while Nisekoi will run extra long at 25 pages.

Kubo launched his slick flagship in Shonen Jump in 2001, where it’s remained running ever since. In its time, Bleach has inspired 366 anime episodes in a series stretching from 2004 to 2012, besides a slew of films, novels, video games, and the beloved Rock Musicals which make a triumphant return this summertime.

Komi drew the original ‘Nisekoi’ as a one-shot for Jump NEXT!! magazine in 2011, but it was brought back as a manga series in November that same year. The 24th compiled volume of the manga will be published by Shueisha on August 4th, and VIZ Media, who serialise English-language chapters of the manga as they’re released in Japan, describe the story:

It’s hate at first sight—or rather a knee to the head at first sight —when Raku Ichijo meets Chitoge Kirisaki! Unfortunately, Raku’s gangster father arranges a false love match between Raku and their rival gang leader’s daughter, who just so happens to be Chitoge! Raku’s searching for his childhood sweetheart from ten years ago, however, with a pendant around his neck as a memento…but he can’t even remember the girl’s name or face!

  1. For Bleach, it finally end soon and I’m glad. I wait the ending until I’m lazy to wait for a long time.

    For Nisekoi. Well, it seems the final girl of Nisekoi manga was revealed. Just as Nisekoi analysis mentioned. It collected many clues and hints from many chapters from manga until ch 221 (promised girl). If anyone want to read that, you can proceed via link in my username.

    Yeah, we’re glad Bleach is ending too. It’s been ready to end for a long time, and now fans can wish it farewell with the respect the manga and Kubo deserve.

    Maybe I will continue to read Nisekoi once it ends. Part of the reason why I dropped it was because it felt like a manga that would just drag on forever.

      True, it wouldn’t have worked for the story but it could have gone on for ages. I hope it doesn’t disappoint if you do catch up with it.
