How To Watch Bleach In Order

Jessica Williams | Last Updated:


It didn’t take long for Bleach to become a fan favourite after its introduction in the early 2000s. The show features standard anime cliches, focusing on blade warfare in a fantastical society called Soul Society.

 

Teenager Ichigo Kurosaki becomes a Soul Reaper and therefore fulfils a family tradition. Throughout the show, he gains a deeper understanding of the Soul Society, improves his fighting abilities, and solves riddles.

 

Although the manga from which the anime is adapted has continued, Bleach ended its run in 2012, and it seemed doubtful that the anime would ever catch up. In 2020, however, Crunchyroll announced that it would air the next episode of the Bleach series, titled Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War.

 

There has never been a better moment to get caught up on everything that has happened in the Bleach universe than before you binge-watch Thousand-Year Blood War. From the pilot episode to the movies and specials, you have a lot of content to see in one sitting.

About Bleach

The manga Bleach by Tite Kubo has been adapted into a popular Japanese anime television series. The anime series adapts Kubo’s manga and features brand-new, unique stories that can stand independently.

 

In Karakura Town, it follows a high school freshman named Ichigo Kurosaki, played by Hiroaki Tachikawa, to who Rukia Kuchiki gives Soul Reaper abilities. Ultimately, they only just manage to kill the hollow.

 

Despite his initial reluctance, he continues to rid the school of hollows and learns that other of his peers are also spiritually attuned and possess unique abilities.

Watch Order, Including Movies and Specials

Your viewing strategy for Bleach will be determined only by your tolerance for filler. The show has 366 episodes, with 164 being filler (about 45 percent). Some of the fluff is so extensive that it spans multiple arcs but contributes nothing to the story overall. 

 

They can be skipped if you’re pressed for time, but reading them will give you a better understanding of the supporting cast. Even though they are not canon, the films have good stories complimenting the anime. However, there may be some continuity mistakes.

 

One of Bleach’s best features is that the series can be watched in whatever order you like, as long as you stick to the release date sequence (except for a few specials and films). If you’re interested in watching Bleach but could do without the filler episodes, here’s a handy guide:

In what Order Should I Watch Bleach In?

Bleach is easy to follow because it has no mind-bending temporal leaps. If you want to see all Bleach has to offer, from regular episodes to movies and specials, this is the recommended viewing order:

 

  • Bleach Episodes 1 – 7
  • Bleach: Memories in the Rain – Special
  • Bleach: 13 Court Guard Squads Omake – Special
  • Bleach Episodes 8 – 63
  • Bleach: The Sealed Sword Frenzy – Special
  • Bleach Episodes 64 – 109
  • Bleach the Movie: Memoires of Nobody
  • Bleach Episodes 110 – 137
  • Bleach the Movie: The DiamondDust Rebellion
  • Bleach the Movie: Fade to Black
  • Bleach Episodes 138 – 299
  • Bleach the Movie: Hell Verse
  • Bleach Episodes 300 – END
  • Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War

 

Thousand-Year Blood War, the newest entry in the Bleach series, is now airing. Only those stuck reading the manga after the first series ended in 2012 can enjoy the continuation of the story in all its animated grandeur on television.

Bleach Watch Order at a Glance (Chronologically)

1. Bleach, episodes 1-117

The first 117 episodes of Bleach, spanning the first five seasons and about half of the sixth, are at the top of our Bleach viewing order. The fourth season (“The Bount”) is an original story centred on Ishida and a collection of beings called Bounts (they’re like vampires) and is the only non-canon stuff here.

 

Included in this group is not only the initial chapter of the Arrancar tale, which is marked by Aizen’s revolt and the debut of the Arrancar but also the entire Soul Society arc, in which our main character Ichigo turns into a Shinigami and later needs to join Soul Society to save Rukia.

2. Bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody (2016)

After Ichigo Kurosaki and Rukia Kuchiki return to the human world, namely Karakura Town, they are ambushed by a large group of mysterious spirits. A shinigami named Senna, a girl with purple locks and orange eyes, enters when these spirits besiege Ichigo and Rukia, and she quickly dispatches them with her Shikai.

 

Since Senna refuses to talk to Ichigo, he has no choice but to follow her. As everything goes on, a strange thing happens in Soul Society: the stage of humanity will be projected in the universe of Soul Society. Gotei 13 receives a first-class preparedness alert from the government. 

 

The captain of the 10th Division, Tshiro Hitsugaya, and his lieutenant, Rangiku Matsumoto, travel to the human world to find out what’s happening and meet Ichigo.

 

During their visit to the Urahara Shop, Kisuke Urahara reveals that expanding the realm known as the Valley of Screams has effectively bridged the gap between Soul Society and the human world. 

 

Kisuke adds that the souls Ichigo had seen before are called “Blanks” and that they are souls that have lost both their memory and their way between the worlds.

 

The Blanks have made their home in the Valley of Screams, but they cannot increase the size of their current dimension on their own. Artifacts like the “Memory Rosary” can be made from the Blanks’ forgotten history. 

 

Nevertheless, Senna tells Ichigo that she is the rosary of recollection. Despite Ichigo and the Soul Society Shinigami’s best efforts, a group calling itself the “Dark Ones” emerges at that moment and abducts Senna.

 

After entering the Valley of Screams, you’ll hear from the Dark Ones that they were formerly shinigami before being banished here. 

 

Since Senna is made up of forgotten recollections that torment the Blanks, the Dark Ones want to exact retribution by setting off a chain reaction that destroys both Soul Society and the Human World.

 

Ichigo and Rukia travel through a river portal to the Valley of Nightmares. It will take one hour to destroy both worlds once the doorway to humanity is opened. Rukia has asked the Soul Society to send reinforcements.

3. Bleach, episodes 118-125

This brief collection picks off just where the sixth season of the anime left off before being interrupted again by two feature films. We recommend watching the movies after episode 125 because they don’t exactly suit the timeline of the events, but they do follow the timeline of the growth of Ichigo’s powers. 

 

Fade to Black can be seen whenever after episode 125, but it’s best to get it over with as soon as possible.

 

This batch introduces the Vizards and continues the Shinigami’s battle against the resurgent Arrancar in Karakura Town.

4. Bleach the Movie 2: The DiamondDust Rebellion (2007)

We’re still on Bleach watch. Tshir Hitsugaya, who had been designated to protect the “king’s seal” along with his Division, who mysteriously vanished, is viewed as a partner of the thief and a traitor by Shigekuni Genryusai Yamamoto after the theft of the object by unknown individuals.

 

Captain Hitsugaya wakes up in Ichigo Kurosaki’s chamber after passing out, with Kurosaki learning about his “betrayal” from Soifon during his absence. 

 

Meanwhile, in the Soul Society, Tenth Division Lieutenant Rangiku Matsumoto is under house arrest, and the whole division is at risk of being disbanded. After coming to his help, Renji Abarai, Rukia Kuchiki,  and Shunsui Kyoraku decide to look into the situation.

 

Hitsugaya again vanishes from Earth after having a run-in with two of the three unknown robbers and draws Ichigo Kurosaki into the conflict. 

 

Through investigation, Captain Kyoraku and his subordinate Nanao Ise of the Soul Society discover that Sojiro Kusaka, a childhood friend of Hitsugaya’s who never graduated from the Shinigami school, is the ringleader of the thieves.

 

Kusaka takes the initiative, ambushing Captain Kyoraku and then sends two of his men to Earth to battle Ichigo and Rukia, who is Arrancar. 

 

After being ambushed and injured by lieutenants Izuru Kira and Shuhei Hisagi, Tshir Hitsugaya tracks out an old acquaintance, Kusaka, who promises to work together to bring down the Soul Society.

 

With the help of  Yasutora Sado, Ury Ishida, and Orihime Inoue, Ichigo and Rukia effortlessly dispatch the two Arrancars and enter the Soul Society.

 

At the site of the former Sokyoku, Kusaka and Hitsugaya are surrounded by dozens of Shinigami, including many captains and lieutenants. When Ichigo arrives, he discloses Hitsugaya’s plan: to settle an old account with his colleague, not as captain of Gotei 13. This puts a quick end to the impending war.

5. Bleach the Movie 3: Fade to Black (2008)

The third Bleach film, Fade to Black (2008), is next on our list to see. Mayuri Kurotsuchi is assaulted at the 12th Division lab by an unknown person wielding a scythe, and something of unknown significance is taken.

 

A weird liquid attacks the Soul Society, erasing the captain’s memories. As Rukia Kuchiki looks on hopelessly, a girl approaches and sadly informs her that no one will remember her.

 

However, the Shinigami is cut down as well. As a result, she needs to be remembered by all the Shinigami. In the real world, Ichigo Kurosaki worries about Rukia.

 

He then travels to the Soul Society with Kon after visiting Kisuke Urahara, who doesn’t remember Rukia. At this point, Ichigo understands that, like Rukia, he seems to have been forgotten by the Shinigami.

 

Ichigo visits the residence of Byakuya Kuchiki after brief encounters with Renji Abarai,  Shuhei Hisagi, and Sajin Komamura. Here, the tiny lion confuses the Captain for Rukia since she is standing next to a picture of Hisana, the Captain’s late wife.

 

Byakuya is perplexed as to how Ichigo learned his wife’s name. He does not recall Rukia or Ichigo, but he provides the youngster with vital information by saying that Hisana is from the Rukongai district 78, “Inuzuri.”

 

Here, Rukia reawakens with no recollection of her time with the Shinigami. It turns out that Rukia had previously discovered her two still kids and nurtured them as her own, which explains why her two captors treat her so well. The boys are now waiting for Rukia to give them their new names.

 

Ichigo finally locates Rukia on the hill where he and his companions are buried after endless searches. However, it seems that Rukia no longer remembers her former closest buddy.

6. Bleach, episodes 126-299

Except for filler seasons, this is the longest stretch of episodes you can watch without skipping. The Soul Society’s war against Aizen and the Arrancars is interrupted by the shorter “The New Captain Shsuke Amagai” arc and the longer “Zanpakut: The Alternate Tale” arc, both of which are filler seasons in this collection.

 

The next batch will include the remaining episodes of the Arrancar tale. However, the canon material in this batch is the finest of the whole series. One or two filler episodes here and there over the seasons are to be expected.

 

The filler season episode “The New Captain Shsuke Amagai” alludes to the main tale. Still, the arc in “Zanpakut: The Alternate Tale” is utterly unconnected (we do not know when it will occur).

7. Bleach the Movie 4: Hell Verse (2010)

In the opening scene, a soul from Hell watches as Hollow Ichigo Kurosaki confronts Ulquiorra Schiffer, standing before a flame. 

 

After stopping some thugs from throwing flowers at a kid who had died, Ichigo is joined by Rukia and Renji. They tell him they are investigating something in Karakura but do not want to involve him in Byakuya Kuchiki’s orders.

 

Orihime Inoue and Chad arrive at the school at the same time, and when they do, the scaffolding in front of them seems to give way and collapse on a student; however, Chad stands in its path, and the kid is saved by her power. 

 

Ichigo, Orihime, Chad, and Ury Ishida return to the scene since they believe it was no accident.

 

At that same time, Tastuki, Keigo, and Mizuiro encounter another event inside the school and stumble into the architects: three people with black cloaks, white limbs, and a mask claiming Ichigo’s assistance.

 

Meanwhile, Renji shows up there, tells Ichigo that Rukia has gone to her home, and then volunteers to aid Rukia’s friend and the two small girls since he has sensed a reiatsu comparable to that of foreigners and takes her place.

 

Amid the conflict, one of Ishida’s arrows manages to break through the mask worn by one of the assailants, and at that very time, the Gates of Hell open and a vast sword rips through the guy.

 

His allies are hiding out from the pressure of the circumstance. Meanwhile, Ichigo arrives at the Kurosaki Clinic in time to aid Rukia in her struggle and witnesses, to his horror, one of the two persons holding Yuzu and Karin hostage.

 

Chad, who had come with Renji and Ishida, was injured while trying to rescue Rukia from harm when the guy was shot in the back just as he was ready to return to Hell through a portal. Karin was saved, but Yuzu was abducted and transported to Hell. 

 

The group’s leader, Shuren, tells Ichigo they need his influence over them and that his sister will be returned only if she helps them.

 

Inside, the guy who assisted them reveals himself to be Kokuto, an Infernal Sinner or a soul that has been consigned to Hell, where they will be eternally tormented for their misdeeds since they were members of Soul Society and performed horrific actions throughout their lifetime. 

 

Kokuto cautions them that Yuzu is not acting out of any good motives when he promises to help them rescue her, but Rukia and Renji are still wary of him.

8. Bleach, episodes 300-366

The current batch is the last one (for now). There’s a filler season (“Gotei 13 Invading Army”), an emotional finale to the Arrancar tale, and the Fullbringer arc, which expands the legends and sees Ichigo reclaim his Shinigami abilities after losing them in his battle with Aizen.

 

Even though it’s not official, the filler season does advance the story of the anime and set the stage for the Fullbringer storyline. There are also a few filler episodes scattered throughout.

9. Bleach, episodes 367-ongoing

In the Lost Agent storyline, Ichigo just recently acquired his abilities. With the aid of Ichigo and his companions, the two new Shinigami dispatched to Karakura Town can kill some of the Hollows. Still, as Mayuri Kurotsuchi notes in Soul Society, the others are exterminated entirely rather than cleansed.

 

Later, an unknown man named Asguiaro Ebern shows up, seeking a fight with Ichigo. Despite Ebern’s attempts to seal his Bankai, Ichigo quickly dispatches him. Meanwhile, an invasion on Hueco Mundo prompts Nel to go to the Human World to seek Ichigo’s aid; Chad, Orihime, and Urahara accompany him, but Ishida refuses to attend them since, as a Quincy, he cannot aid a Hollow.

 

At the same time, a mystery white-clad force attacks the Soul Society, killing Yamamoto’s lieutenant Sasakibe and declaring war on the Gotei 13. When Mayuri confirms it is the Quincy, Yamamoto instructs the Gotei 13 to be ready for battle. 

 

When Ichigo visits Hueco Mundo, he runs upon Sternritter Quilge Opie (“J” – The Jail), who has been abandoned to continue slaughtering Hollows and Arrancar in control of Hueco Mundo. 

 

After being challenged by an Arrancar, who was ultimately successful, Ichigo comes and fights him, only to find himself imprisoned in a unique Quincy jail from which he cannot break free.

 

Taking advantage of the situation, Yhwach and his Sternritter launch an early invasion of Soul Society, during which they steal several Bankai, comes dangerously close to killing several Lieutenants and Captains, and end up killing thousands of lower-ranking Shinigami, including Captain-Commander Yamamoto. 

 

Ichigo’s entrance temporarily halts Quincy’s advance, but he still fails to vanquish Yhwach, and the Seireitei is left in shambles as the Sternritter flees.

 

After the Central 46 appointed Kyoraku as their new Captain-Commander, they began rebuilding with the aid of the Royal Guard, who had arrived in response to the threat posed by Yhwach. They assist Gotei 13 and Ichigo, training the latter to increase his strength in preparation for the second attack on Soul Society.

Bleach Plot

The protagonist, a high school student named Ichigo Kurosaki, has his life upside down when Hollows assault him and his family. Hollows are tainted spirits that seek and eat human souls.

 

While searching for answers about the Hollow assault on his family, Ichigo meets Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki. The protagonist had to make a difficult choice and use Rukia’s abilities to become a Soul Reaper to protect his loved ones.

 

Rukia Kuchiki could not utilise her abilities, so she ordered Ichigo to destroy all Hollows plaguing their village.  Uryuu Ishida, Orihime Inoue, and Yasutora Sado, three classmates, also joined the battle. In addition, they have special skills that might be put to good use in the fight against Hollows.

 

As he continues performing these dangerous duties, Ichigo becomes a more capable Soul Reaper. Things were becoming more spartan, but then he had an epiphany that made him reevaluate his approach to the work. It dawned on him that Hollows weren’t the only things out to get humans.

 

Is Ichigo Kurosaki going to be able to defeat the monsters that threaten humanity’s very existence?

What Are the 5 Movies of Bleach?

Five films are based on the Bleach manga and anime, including one live-action feature. The film’s stunning animation and the original plot will win you over immediately.

 

  • Bleach: Memories of Nobody (2006)
  • Bleach: The Diamond Dust Rebellion (2007)
  • Bleach: Fade to Black (2008)
  • Bleach: Hell Verse (2010)
  • Bleach Live-action film (2018)

Bleach: Memories of Nobody (2006)

Noriyuki Abe, Masashi Sogo, and Tite Kubo’s Memories of Nobody is the first animated feature based on the Bleach anime manga series. Stars like Masakazu Morita (Ichigo), Fumiko Orikasa (Rukia Kuchiki), and Hiroki Yasumoto (Sado Chad Yasutora) provide their voices to the numerous characters.

 

The narrative opens with the appearance of mysterious white entities in Karakura Town. Ichigo and Rukia are soul reapers tasked with removing these “Blanks,” or ghosts, from the world. In the murky depths of purgatory between our world and the Soul Society, a collection of disoriented spirits whose identities had been shattered and reassembled combined into a mysterious being known only as “Shinenju.”

 

Most of these ghosts are destroyed by Senna, a mysterious soul reaper. She refused to answer their inquiries and departed after being confronted by Ichigo and Rukia. While Rukia returns to Soul Society to get the answers she seeks, Ichigo trails behind.

 

CGI has been used to generate stunning backdrops and effects but has yet to earn widespread praise for its lacklustre character animation and static settings. Some spectators found the video interesting, despite the animation flaws; the compelling voice acting had them on the edge of their seats until the credits rolled, and they were left wanting more.

Bleach: The Diamond Dust Rebellion (2007)

After the events of “Memories of Nobody,” the second film in the Bleach series, “The Diamond Dust Rebellion,” was released in 2007.

 

The creator of Bleach, Tite Kubo, wrote a one-shot based on Tshir to promote the release of his film. He was also asked to help develop the movie’s main antagonist, Kusaka.

 

The story begins when rogue Soul Reaper Sojiro Kusaka and two females, Ying and Yang, steal the “King’s Seal”; Toshiro Hitsugaya appears to know the Soul Reaper and leaves his station to chase the guy.

 

Hitsugaya’s arrest is later ordered by the Soul Society, who now see him as a potential traitor. Ichigo Kurosaki, a replacement Soul Reaper, has vowed to clear Hitsugaya’s name with the help of Rangiku, Rukia, and Renji.

 

This charming film is the second in a trilogy of animated features based on the hit Japanese anime and manga Bleach.

 

Noriyuki Abe directed this segment, and Michiko Yokote and Masahiro Kubo wrote it.

 

Battle scenes in “The Diamond Dust Rebellion” may be rather gory. Fans of the first series tend to like this picture more because of its thrilling storytelling, deeper narrative, and intrigue. Although the movie has been panned for its animation and corny soundtrack, fans of the Bleach series should not miss it because of the excellent voice acting.

Bleach: Fade to Black (2008)

Bleach: The Third Film is written by Masahiro Okubo and Natsuko Takahashi, directed by Noriyuki Abe, and produced by Pierrot Business. If you like the first two films in the series, you will also enjoy this one. The tone is more gritty and grim, and the story is more complex than in the other films.

 

Rukia is abruptly caught up in a tremendous change while a devastating explosion rattles the peaceful city of Seireitei. To find out what happened and free Rukia from the hands of two unknown spirits, Urahara Kisuke dispatches Ichigo Kurasaki to the Soul Society.

 

Gotei 13 members consider Ichigo a danger to their group and obliterate Rukia’s memory. After being on Ichiko’s side for a while, the Shinigamis turned on Seireitei and attacked.

 

Bleach Fade to Black is the perfect film for those seeking an exciting and emotionally engaging experience. This epic anime masterpiece takes viewers on an unforgettable adventure they won’t want to miss. Don’t miss out on today’s free Bleach: Fade to Black screening!

Bleach the Movie: Hell Verse (2010)

In the fourth episode, Hell vs. Bleach, Ichigo and his pals go on a daring adventure across Hell to rescue Ichigo’s sister, Yuzu. Based on the hit anime and manga of the same name, “Bleach: Hell Verse” is an action-packed film.

 

The film’s tone is established by the song “Save the One, Save the All” by T.M.Revolution; the script was written by Natsuko Takahashi and Ookubo Masahiro, with careful supervision from the manga’s original creator, Tite Kubo.

 

There is total anarchy in Ichigo Kurosaki’s village of Karakura when a group of rebellious convicts escape from Hell. An unknown guy saves Ichigo from impending death, although the convict’s enormous strength outmatches him.

 

His little sister, Yuzu, is in danger, so he sets out on a perilous journey through Hell with his pals Rukiya, Renji, Uryu, and Kokutou to rescue her and restore order before it’s too late!

 

Anyone who hasn’t seen the previous Bleach films but is curious about the series should check out Bleach: Hell Verse. This film will leave an indelible impression on viewers because of its breathtaking cinematography, thrilling action scenes, and emotionally engaging story.

Bleach: The Soul Reaper Agent Arc (2018)

The long-awaited action fantasy film “Bleach” from Japan was finally released on the 20th of July, 2018. This film version of Tite Kubo’s manga series, starring Sota Fukushi and directed by Shinsuke Sato as the main character Ichigo Kurosaki, soon attracted enormous audiences with its compelling tale. 

 

It premiered in North America on July 28 at the Japan Cuts Festival in New York City. Then it was made available on Netflix on September 14 (making it available to viewers all over the globe).

 

Japanese high school freshman Ichigo Kurosaki, 15, has a unique ability: he can see ghosts. Through this ability, he meets a Soul Reaper, Rukia Kuchiki,  and Katana user who came to protect his family but was wounded. To safely restore her powers, he must assume her role as Soul Reaper going forward and collect enough Reiyoku energy by using his sword skills to defeat Hollows.

 

Watch a Japanese action fantasy movie that is better than any live-action anime! The film does a fantastic job of adapting the first few chapters of Bleach, right down to the costumes and set pieces. In addition, stunning CGI images and thrilling hollows will completely blow you away.

 

Watching an episode of Bleach at Halloween is like nothing else. Fans of the first film have widely anticipated Soul Society Arc’s sequel, and they shouldn’t be disappointed when it finally arrives.

 

There are other movies, TV shows, and spin-offs that go even farther into the Bleach universe. If you want to learn more about this fascinating world, I highly recommend seeing the films and series that Kubo and his team have since produced. 

 

Bleach’s first pair of filler episodes, the Bount and the Hueco Mundo arc were very disappointing after the critically lauded Soul Society storyline. As expected, this filler arc is among the worst in Bleach’s history.

 

Regardless of your experience with anime movies, this thrilling adventure from start to finish will have you falling in love with the Bleach series repeatedly.

FAQs

Can I Skip All Bleach Fillers?

You can ignore all of the Bleach fillers. The only explanation for wanting to watch them is if you want more attention on some minor characters or if Season 9’s filler arc (“The New Captain Shsuke Amagai”) intrigues you since it is not a manga arc. Other than that, there is no need to watch them.

Can I Watch Bleach Without Reading the Manga?

Yes, you can watch Bleach even if you haven’t read the manga. Keep in mind, however, that the anime, even with episodes with mixed canons, adds specific filler components to smooth out the process (and stretch the graphics for a television program) that don’t necessarily precisely correlate with the manga. 

 

This is something that you should keep in mind. Stick to the Bleach manga canon sequence list if you don’t want to read the manga but still want to experience the manga via the anime.

How Many Episodes and Seasons Are There of Bleach?

There are a total of 366 episodes spread out throughout 16 seasons. The number of episodes shown during the show’s comeback season has yet to be announced.

How Many Episodes of Bleach Are There Without Fillers?

There is not a single filler episode in the 203 episodes of Bleach. This contains both the manga canon and episodes from the hybrid canon. Once again, manga canon episodes bring the number of episodes down to 166.

How Many Filler Episodes Are There in Bleach?

Bleach has a total of 163 episodes that are considered to be filler. Once again, these 163 episodes contribute little to the overall narrative.

How Many Episodes and Movies Does Bleach Have?

At the time of this writing, Bleach has 376 episodes and four movies spread throughout a great 14 arcs, and the episode count is only going up as the current season continues. Check out our Bleach filler guide for more information on how many episodes are unnecessary and, more crucially, how to fast-forward through them.

What Is the Best Way to Watch Bleach?

Watching each Bleach episode in order is the most excellent way to experience the show. Regarding the main anime series, it’s best to watch episodes in their proper sequence. Except for the “Gotei 13 Invading Army” anime arc, the filler seasons and non-canon movies don’t have much bearing on the main narrative and may be seen in any order.

Where to Watch the Bleach Anime Series?

Crunchyroll, the largest anime distributor in the world, used to be the only home for Bleach and many more anime. Some episodes were also accessible on Hulu, while the series aired briefly and in an abbreviated version on Netflix. 

 

After 16 seasons on Crunchyroll, Disney+ obtained the rights to distribute Bleach in the West, beginning with Season 17’s debut, The Thousand-Year Blood War. See our comprehensive guide for more information on watching Bleach with English subtitles.

Do You Need to Watch Bleach in Order?

When watching Bleach, it’s essential to do it in sequence. Everything in the show is presented in chronological order. You don’t have to watch the filler seasons or the non-canon movies in any particular order because they don’t affect the main story (except the “Gotei 13 Invading Army” anime arc, which is tied to the conclusion of the Arrancar Saga and “The New Captain Shsuke Amagai” arc, that alluded to events from the main story but is still filler).

Will There Be More Bleach Anime?

In 2022, Bleach made its long-awaited comeback with the Thousand-Year Blood War storyline. It’s the last and most giant arc in the Bleach manga. Since the Quincy Blood War arc, fans were dismayed to learn that Bleach had been cancelled. However, the most recent information suggests that Bleach will return shortly since the current season is being shown over the globe.

Which Episodes of Bleach Can Be Skipped?

A significant portion of the episodes of Bleach, around 44 percent, are thought to be filler. This list contains anime-exclusive canon, incomplete canon and filler material.
