Bleach 🙂


Bleach and Nisekoi would be my most anticipated. Even feeling like Ichigo’s story should have ended with the defeat of Aizen, it was still a series that I enjoyed, so to see another journey into that world would be cool. And Nisekoi, I simply enjoyed as a fun little tale, so there’s no harm in revisiting.

I’m not sure if Tite Kubo is going to continue with Bleach. Maybe I missed it, but I don’t see any mention of the upcoming one-shot being aboue Bleach at all.

Nisekoi is the quintessential example of what not to do in a romcom series. I for one hope it stays gone.


It’s the first one on the list above, so i’m assuming it’ll be included. I don’t think a full return would be wise, unless he wants to shift focus like Boruto did for Naruto, but a short return would be welcome by me.

Nisekoi does seem to divide people. It wasn’t perfect, i’d certainyl agree with that, but it was fun enough for me. I don’t watch many romcons though, so it may be that my view would be different if I was more of a fan of the genre.

Ah, I misread the title. A one-shot would be nice, but a full return (full-bring?) seems dubious.

Fair enough. I’m just tired of meaningless childhood promises and convenient amnesia, among many other things.


I can understand that. My own exposure to the troops had pretty much been limited to Nisekoi though, so it feels a little fresher.
