The Complete Bleach Episode Guide (NO FILLERS)

The Complete Bleach Episode Guide (NO FILLERS)

So, you’re trying to watch the popular anime Bleach, huh? Well there’s something you should know if you haven’t been warned of already. Bleach is notoriously full of filler seasons placed in awkward points of the story that can often completely tear you away from caring about the series. New characters are introduced, and even that has minimal (at best) relevance to the story after the filler arc they are introduced in. If there’s any show that can be used as a guideline for what fillers should NEVER be like, it’s Bleach.

Luckily for you, though, this writer is a huge fan of the series and is willing to put together a guide for the series. This is going to be layed out as simple as possible. The only episodes NOT specifically titled or listed will be fillers. The episode numbers of those fillers will be shown so you know what episodes to skip over if you just want the core story. The series will be organized up by story arcs, and cannon episodes will be listed and the titles will be shown as well. Sadly Bleach was canceled a while back, so every episode is available already in Japanese, English, and subtitled for those that prefer the original Japanese voices. We don’t host the videos ourselves. How or where you watch it is completely on the viewer. We won’t judge if you don’t.
