そして次回、『デート・ア・ライブ4』は、ついにあのキャラが表紙です。もしかしたらまだ本文を読んでいない方がいらっしゃるかもしれないので微妙にぼかし

Hi. Does the ぼかし come from ぼかす, which means “make a noncommittal answer”? If so, why is 連用形 used at the end of the sentence, (rather than, say, ぼかした)?
Thank you.

That's indeed 連用形, but it's more likely used as a noun there, like これで終わり。, それがすべての始まり。 or この後が大変。.

Thank you. So can we use ぼかしておきます (I’ll leave it unclear) instead of ぼかし there?
