A reboot is not feasible. Like Maxy stated, most reboots are for series that don't follow the original manga adaptation. HunterxHunter was a different story since Togashi took his own sweet time to bring out new chapters.
I agree that a reboot can introduce an old series to the newer generation but reboots shouldn't occur so soon. If a reboot ever does happen for a series like Naruto, Bleach etc, it would probably be a decade or 2 after the series has ended. Right now, if the anime does comeback, it'd be for the final arc.
Bleach has a decent chance of returning since it still sells quite well and its position in the TOC has improved. Even if it was never announced, the fillers were a strong reason why the anime stopped and the ratings dropped. There were literally about 5 fillers right in between Aizen's final fight. It's probably why the studio is stretching out the new Naruto episodes in one way or another which, to be honest, is kinda annoying (at least the way they are doing it).
Doesn't Bleach have a forum for this kind of discussion or is it in pause too ?
but kdom, mindless speculation about things that aren't happening is a core facet of this thread!
This week's placing where Soul Catcher(s) is above Haikyuu!! is a good example.
Just a tiny bit at least.
Bleach is not getting a new anime.
Sure, it's sales are still technically decent but they have dropped, and the anime was mainly cancelled because of ratings, not because of filler (the Japanese are also known for not hating filler like we do). They don't just bring back TV series that had terrible TV ratings, Bleach getting a new anime is nothing but a pipe dream.
1,5-2,2 millions it's terrible?Quote:
Here is the news that Bleach was ending. There is no mention that ratings were involved. Can you link some confirmation supporting your claim that ratings were involved? Can you in any way confirm that ratings were "terrible" (by anime standards) in the first place?
And if you think about it, it shouldn't be too surprising, with the constant reliance on fillers, it isn't too strange to believe that ratings were poor. They would have had to do way more fillers as they were on the cusp of catching up with the manga at the time, and it's very probable that they didn't feel the cost was worth it. It's also more likely considering that they decided to replace it by the palatable Rock Lee SD spin-off.
So I did take a look at some numbers, seems Bleach has been teetering between 1.4-2.0% of the ratings, putting it somewhat above most late night anime. For a 6pm timeslot, it's rather bad.

I believe it was posted here or somewhere else that Bleach was among TV Tokyo's top 3 earning titles of all time or something.
Anyway, I found this link for this year.
Also, stating that the anime stopped solely cause of ratings is, like Kaiten said, very bold. Sure ratings were not high and we all know its basically cause of the fillers. But never was it ever mentioned that the series got "cancelled", in the 1st place. It was announced that it "ended". That's when everyone went in to check the ratings and made two or three comparisons and assumed it got "cancelled".
Also what makes you think JUMP will never allow Bleach to get animated again? Bleach is still one of the most recognizable manga out there even in Japan. People can love it or hate it but it gets people talking one way or another. It's the 6th best selling series of all time and it still hasn't fallen like most titles after the anime has ended. It's among the top 5 selling titles in JUMP even now. If anything, Bleach has a decent chance of getting an anime again.

And why wouldn't Jump allow Bleach to be animated again? Maybe because there's no reason for it. It has nowhere near the amount of popularity as lets say Dragon Ball, and it's about to end so it wouldn't even be viable as getting an adaptation years down the line like HxH (nor does it sell like HxH). I mean people who think Bleach still has a chance at getting a continuation or new anime are delusional as the people who still think that Beelzebub, Reborn!, or any of the countless other Jump series without a completed anime have a chance of getting a new anime.
Unfortunately, Beelzebub and Reborn! did not represent JUMP for 6-8 years as one of the big 3 series. No no, I don't mean "The Big 3" that people outside Japan refer to, I mean the 3 series JUMP always chooses as its main attraction on the magazine covers. In fact, the recent cover with Jaco had Ichigo in a similar position to Toriko. Sure Bleach was never really as popular as DragonBall but then again almost no other series were.
