Did ...

Kisuke Urahara and Yoruichi Shihōin

survive the Thousand Year Blood War Arc?

The manga did not mention anything about them in the last chapter. They are both very important characters to the Bleach universe.

I am wondering if there were any subtle hints left by the author of Bleach manga, Tite Kubo, to assert their death (or survival) in anyway.

    The conclusion didn't conclude quite a lot of things. I've not heard of any indication of that being rectified, but possibly there will be a data book or something. – zibadawa timmy Oct 16 '16 at 5:55

Urahara's status is unknown; however it is safe to presume he is dead. During his fight with Askin, although he defeats Askin (with a little help from Grimmjow), he collapses at the end and says that he apologizes for leaving. everything to Ichigo and Rukia.

Yoruichi is also unknown; after Askin activates his Vollstandig and approaches both of them, she does not appear after that. Her drug was wearing off, but Kubo did not reference back to her after that. With her, it isn't safe to assume her death or survival.

  • @Ryan, yes, but I doubt Nel would be enough to overpower Askin. – Rowan A. Oct 31 '16 at 16:23
  • Though, Askin was kind of already dead by then, you know, heart ripped out and everything. Nel just needed to pick them up and carry them out, in an unspecified but short period of time, through a small hole. – Ryan Oct 31 '16 at 16:24

Yes they are alive as they are shown in the light novel 'We do knot always love you'

    Why the downvote? Is it not true? – SeasonalShot Jan 29 '17 at 19:05

    @kisukeurahara while taking a look at the review queue I came across your answer. I don't know if it's factual or not but it most likely got downvoted because it is one-sentence. A lot of one-liners are getting flagged lately because they don't show a fully thought out answer. To fix this add more context. – Callat Jan 29 '17 at 20:47
