+ But from this onwards, he's told them there's to be 2 more arcs.
+The next arc is a short one, and there's an initiative for the next one.
+ There was a large response for Ulquiorra's death around the world.
+ He didn't declare whether Ulquiorra was alive or not.
+ The popular ones among the vizards are Hirako and Hiyori
+ Hirako is really easy to draw (art wise)
+ There was a meeting yesterday at the hotel regarding the movie.+ I want to create a good one after resting for 1 year.
Personally, I don't want Bleach series to end because I am really looking forward to a unique arc in which the zanpakutous are the only characters wherein Zangetsu is the main and leading protagonist, instead of Ichigo. I also want to see there Sode no Shirayuki, Senbonzakura, and Hollow Ichigo along with Zangetsu in that kind of arc. Of course, there will be more new developments in their prowesses or powers and more exciting battle encounters aside from diving or delving more deeply in their personalities and "relationships" with others. In short, a new "twist and surprise" in each zanpaktou's life so that this arc will continue longer than the usual . I hope Tite Kubo will make this special arc in this coming year 2010.
