Bleach Manga on a Break Due to Kubo Tite's Illness

Two things have been left hanging in the last few chapters of famous shonen manga Bleach: the identity of Urahara Kisuke's savior and Kenpachi Zaraki about to do something badass (or about to be punked since he's facing one of the sternritters along with the big bad, Buckbeard). Unfortunately, we're going to have to wait a couple of weeks more before we get to find out, chief of the reason being Bleach's absense from the 36-37 double issue of Shonen Jump.

The reason for the absence is the author going on a sick leave. Tite Kubo's poor health is common knowledge in the industry, but it seems that it's getting to the point where the schedule of the manga is being affected.

In the meantime, the one shot "My Mom is a Spy" will be replacing Bleach in Shonen Jump. The manga is expected to return on August 20.
