“Bleach” was once part of the fandom known as”the Big 3 anime; for one brief, shining moment in the mid-’90s “Bleach,” “Naruto,” and “One Piece” ruled both “Shonen Jump” in Japan as well as Hot Topics across America. “Bleach” followed the adventures of slightly psychic students at high school Ichigo Kurosaki, who discovered the power of the Soul Reaper named Rukia. Ichigo must then defend Rukia, Earth, and the realm of spirit (also called”the Soul Society) from various threats and adversaries.
“Bleach” started as a manga published in “Shonen Jump,” which was later adapted into an animated series. “Bleach” was an anime that ran from 2004 to 2012 “Bleach” anime ran from 2004 until 2012, concluding in an adaptation of Chapter 479 of the manga. The final series that the manga is based on was never modified, but it was planned to debut in 2021. In the meantime, the 366 original episodes of the show can be found on Crunchyroll as well as Hulu.
However, 366 episodes is a huge amount of content to digest. What do you do if you wish to learn the latest information with the next series? “Bleach” was famous for its later era of filler arcs, stories and episodes with nothing to do with the manga’s original. Filler arcs can be enjoyable in their own right, however, If you’re trying to find a direct version of manga there are a lot of “Bleach” filler episodes to avoid.
It was 164 episodes of filler on Bleach.
Youtuber Hensama went through each arc in the “Bleach” anime, and the chapters in the manga they focused on. He discovered that 164 of the show’s total of 366 were filler episodes, totally disconnected from the manga as well as the ongoing storyline.
If you’re only interested in what happens on the Manga, these are the episodes you should skim 33, 50 64-109. 128-137. 147-149 The episodes are 168-189, 204-205, 213-214, 228-229 2, 298-299 313-340, 303-305, and 355.
There are some single-episode filler episodes that are, as per Hensama, “range from a recap, to a film festival, to a holiday special, to a side story about Ichigo and a magic lamp.” Episode 228 is a beach-themed episode which is a classic type of episode as defined by the TV Tropes Who could be angry about this? Certain episodes, however, are complete filler episodes. “The New Captain” Shusuke Amagai’s arc does not have anything to do with manga and is a distraction from the ongoing Arrancar storyline. Just at the end of the Arrancar storyline, we get a flurry of filler episodes focusing on possible conspiracies within the Soul Society.
“Bleach” ran into the issue of many anime that are running while the manga was still being published The anime sometimes surpassed the manga. This was the case when it was “Dragon Ball,” “Sailor Moon,” and even though it’s certainly not an anime show, ” Game of Thrones.”
