Someone got an early copy of volume 73 of Bleach. It allegedly reads that the series will end with volume 74. We are now 5 chapters into that volume. I don’t know how many chapters per volume Bleach tends to have, but these tend to hover around 200 pages, which only leaves space for 10-12 for weekly manga, meaning Bleach is concluding in around a month or two. This week’s color page also stated the series is “ending in [blacked out] chapters”.

Hunter × Hunter is reentering hiatus. That’s weird, Dragon Quest XI hasn’t released yet.

While Takuan is off to a terrible start, it has nothing to worry about. This year is unusual in that we only have 4 new series thus far. Additionally, it has quite the sizable buffer (Hunter × Hunter going on hiatus, Nisekoi, Gin Tama and Bleach ending naturally, and Mononofu doing consistently bad). It has time to reposition and recover.
