** Kubo's plan for the manga's Final Arc called for it to run at least as long as the 26-volume Arrancar Arc. However, Shueisha decided to cancel the whole series when Kubo was 19 volumes into the Final Arc -- and gave him only 6 weeks' notice, less than 1/10th of the time he'd planned on to wrap the story up. This lead to an extremely rushed finale and epilogue that [[LeftHanging left most plot threads hanging]].

** Kubo admitted that he had never planned for the Arrancar Arc to go on as long as it did. The Arrancars unexpectedly became popular with the fans, so the editors wanted more time devoted to them. Due to each character having to be given ADayInTheLimelight, the arc stretched on for ''years''.
** When the fourth film was released to DVD, it carried with it a message from Kubo explaining that crediting him with the film was inaccurate. His original script was heavily changed at the last minute by the film-makers, with the end product being almost nothing like the original.

** Jeff Nimoy stated that ''Anime/DigimonTheMovie'' was supposed to just feature the first two movies, but higher ups demanded he add the third movie in, which he wanted to be shown as a TV special.

*** For the dub, the iconic salute "Sieg Zeon" was changed to the more generic "Hail Zeon". All other references to the Nazis or Hitler were also covered with references to fascism instead. Averted with ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'', particularly episode 4, which used the former anyway.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'': The reason the Cell arc in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' kept constantly changing villains was because Creator/AkiraToriyama's then current and previous editors kept telling him that the villains he chose weren't good enough. This caused Toriyama to either shoehorn new villains in the arc or create new designs for the existing villains.

* ''Manga/AstroBoy'': The entirety of the "Blue Knight" saga and the subsequent story arc were added due to editor mandate. Apparently, Astro's willingness to work with the police and try to change the social order from within made him unpopular with the new generation of student radicals in the late '60s who believed that modern society was corrupt beyond all redemption, and called Astro Boy a hopelessly idealistic anachronism. Creator/OsamuTezuka's editors at Shonen magazine noticed this and ordered him to make the series DarkerAndEdgier and have him fight against the forces of law and order.

** It has been rumored for years that Kubo has always had problems with his editors - and that he might have had scuffles with ''the chief editor of the Weekly Shonen Jump'' as well. The problems not only weren't solved, but ultimately led to Bleach ads being pulled from WSJ, to changed storylines, and ultimately to [[CutShort the sudden cancellation of the manga as a whole]], with Kubo being given only ''five'' chapters to finish the story itself.
