I'm both utterly shocked and at the same time, not even remotely surprised at the anime ending. Shocked because I hadn't read about it ending, and was figuring "Ok, kubo's being really slow with the latest manga chapters, so there's going to be some sort of epic length filler arc next", but at the same time "....he's released what? 4 chapters so far this year? it's like he's stopped caring at all if the anime totally overtakes him... and the entirety of the fullbringer arc felt like a final arc anyway... They're gonna gainax end the anime" but they didn't do that, at least. Was a pretty decent ending, given what it could have been with kubo's trolling ability.
I wouldn't be shocked if they release "Bleach: The Final Arc" in anime form, or at the very least, OVAs (just dear god, don't make it into a movie, because there's no way kubo's gonna have the final arc be short enough to fit into a movie without dropping all sorts of important sh*t) after the manga finishes, though.
Also, I want to see kyoraku's mother @#%^ing bankai, and I won't have closure until I do.

Am I the only one who clicked on this thread expecting actual baby photos [of Jinte]? o.O
Except if it were baby photos, it would be like looking at before and afters of Michael Jackson. Only instead of turning into a white guy, he changes into a chick!
