Manga creator Tite Kubo will be putting his Bleach series on hiatus from this year's 35th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine to the 40th issue. The manga will return in the 41st issue on September 9 with the beginning of the manga's finale, "Sennen Kessen-Hen - Ketsubetsu-tan." Kubo explained that he is going on hiatus to work on the manga's "last battle."
Kubo began the final story arc of the series last year. Kubo has been drawing the manga in the magazine since 2001, and Shueisha will publish the 60th volume next month. Viz Media published the 57th volume in North America last month.
