The last time we saw Bleach was just over 10 years ago, so it is extremely exciting to finally be able to have a conclusion to the last arc of the manga. Original Bleach creator Tite Kubo has been involved with the making of the new anime and has assured fans there will be new content added to the anime that were not shown in the manga. Over the duration of the 15 years making the Bleach manga, Kubo had developed physical difficulties from spending hours drawing in the same position as he always did, and it was becoming quite painful for him to draw as much as he’d like. So he cut to the end the ending of his story at the height of the last battle, leaving fans with many unanswered questions. Some of them were answered later with a Bleach novel that tried to fill in the gaps of what happened, but it’s not the same as having it shown in manga form or anime form. The novel We Do Knot Always Love You takes place after the war of the last arc and before the last chapter of the Bleach manga.
