They have to cancel the show for now as it pretty much has caught up with the manga, and the guy couldn't draw it that fast.
The anime version already made up loads of crap that weren't in the manga to try drag it on (the vampire saga, and the one with the new captain with that deformed sword), they already stopped it once just before the Nel true form (when they bring in that new captain crap) to let the manga catch up, I guess they just don't want to make up crap anymore and let the original manga artist do the story.
Eh, I'm glad it's ending. It's the first anime I ever really bothered with, but it should bow out gracefully instead of milking itself dry. Couldn't really care less about the plot at this point.
Still, hopefully Kubo can find it in himself to kill off at least ONE protagonist by the end. Having every single good guy survive the Aizen invasion arc was just hilarious. In a very bad way.
Ugh. That whole arc (and the one before it) was pretty much a 50:0 flawless win for the good side, seeing as they all "got better" like right after. It should not be that easy.

But what the Vanderreich are doing is they are ripping off bankais. So, it did not work on Ichigo for some reason, so Ichigo is the only one with the full potential to beat the hell out of Vanderreich. Also I am really waiting to see Grimmjaw, my favourite villain thus far. And Ichigo`s father? I think he will contribute more in this arc, and doesnt Ichigo`s sister have some powers too, I recall?

What makes Naruto stand out above Bleach as well, is the fact that the conclusion was already built into the storyline. Naruto will become Hokage and defeat Sasuke. In fact, Naruto is one of the very few manga/anime that actually develop the main characters. They've gotten older, wiser, they changed and they still have their own personalities. I really like the manga for this reason. I stopped watching the anime due to the horrible animations after the exams, but the manga is still going strong.
As was said, Bleach should have ended with Aizen, because he was the main antagonist. One Piece will end when Luffy becomes the Pirate King and Naruto will end when he becomes Hokage and defeated Sasuke.
And fighting on Kage level... Well... I´m sure he would kick everyones ass at the moment. Except for a known 5 or so... And ofcourse if there is again some mystery team lurking in the shadows that is even a greater villain than the "cloud team, can´t remember the name atm >.<".
I don´t see a long future for naruto.
aizen will b free agian and will make that key what he wanted so badly
I don't mind a series ending, if the ending is a decent one. So long as I never have to suffer an ending as terrible (in a general sense) as the second Mortal Kombat movie, I'll be OK. If something that pathetic ever crosses my screen again.. someone's going to get a head-shave with a chainsaw.
Death is the great equalizer.
