Adult Swim Postpones New Bleach Until August

Due to production delay.

Nebs caught wind this morning that the new episodes of Bleach that were supposed to premiere on Adult Swim this April were no longer on the schedule. Instead, starting on April 24th, Bleach will be in rerun mode, starting back at episode 129-- during the Arrancar arc, when Hitsugaya was being even more super-awesome than usual, if I remember correctly.
  
I checked in with Adult Swim, and was told that the postponement was due to a "production delay" and that there would be no new premieres until August, assuming everything goes well from here. Disappointing for many, I know, but don't worry-- you'll be getting your new Bleach fix soon enough. Now sit back and enjoy some delicious Hitsugaya, before he gets banned in Japan and wiped out from the series. (Kidding!)

I say this is a good thing since they will have more time for new episodes to be made.

@metalsnakezero: That's true, it could wind up being a longer run of new episodes now. We'll have to wait and see! I've been promised more info as it comes available :)

I feel like I've been waiting  forever to see what happened after Ichigo defeated Grimjaw. 
So I guess the Bleach English Dub is on hiatus. 
Darn...

They're already running reruns of that storyline now, aren't they?   
Eh, they can't run what they don't have, and they were showing two new eps a week for a while.  If they hadn't done that, they might still be airing new episodes.   
I've got a pretty big backlog of episodes on my DVR...though not enough to get me through til August.

UGH! I freaking hate that the streak of new episodes stoped with Ichigo slicing Grimmjow open! T^T 
I love Grimmjow

Sadly, unless they are skipping the filler arc, it's going to be even longer before you see the results of their fight. I'm kind of thinking that they got ahead of them selves when they were doing two episodes a week, so now they need time to get back in order (not to mention finding a few new voice actors for the new arc and writting/directing something new).
 
This kind of sucks though. Even though I've already seen or read passed this point, i know that the "cliffhanger" is driving my mother nuts =P I kind of miss her calls to me asking that i explain something or watching it with her when I'm over there.

Doesn't effect me really. After what [adult swim] did with Code Geass, moving it to 5Am on it's first run. I haven't watched that network since. That's where they put a show when they are trying to kill it.
 
Those people confused the hell out of me. When I was first starting my Code Geass R2 4komas. I was posting links to them on the [adult swim] message boards. Since they were the R2 season I put them in the R2 'spoiler' threads they had. They removed one of my links because it was 'too erotic'. I was told that the [adult swim] message boards were for 13years old and up.
Doesn't that strike you as a bit odd? The programming on [adult swim] is suppose to be for 17 and up, but the message boards are for 13 and up. They basically have 13 year olds on their message boards talking about shows that by their own standard they shouldn't be watching.
 
I ended up labeling that 4koma "Declared Too Hot for Adult Swim". It is the second one on HERE in case you are curious.

started watching bleach and really enjoy. Its going to take a while to catch up so this doesnt bother me.

Oh noes.  It's been forever since I watched Bleach.  If I get back into the show, I'll will stick with subs this time.

I'm not usually the "bright side" kind of guy, but no Bounts? Whew. I won't complain.

Well, at least you get Bleach on TV!
 
Unlike here in Canuckistan when YTV went all Nickelodeon on us

" remember torrent is free an you can get anything bleach (that every episode...).   Torrentfly.org   just type bleach season # english dub.  I got every english episode. "
Only Episodes 1-167 have been english dubbed, it's literally impossible for Episodes 168+ to be available dubbed via torrent if they have not even aired yet.
