How To Watch Bleach? Easy Watch Order Guide

Bleach is an anime without a complicated timeline, but plenty of scenes leave the audience scratching their heads.

Being one of the ‘Big Three’ Shonen anime, alongside Naruto and One Piece, it is often considered to be cut from the same cloth as the other two.

Although there might be some similarities concerning having amazing animation and action, Bleach, without a doubt, has a unique storyline. 

As of May 2020, Bleach has 16 seasons and a total of 366 episodes. The numerous episodes demand a lot of your time, but there won’t be a single dull moment if you indulge in it.

An amazing thing about lengthy anime is that the characters get a plethora of quirky traits and backgrounds. The development of old characters and the introduction of new ones always keep us entertained. 

With the Thousand-Year Blood War Arc on its way, you should quickly catch-up with Bleach if you haven’t already!

6. About Bleach

Bleach is a Japanese anime television series based on Tite Kubo’s manga of the same name. The anime series adapts Kubo’s manga but also introduces some new, original, self-contained story arcs.

It is based in Karakura Town on a 15-year-old high school student Ichigo Kurosaki who becomes a substitute Soul Reaper when Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper, puts Soul Reaper powers in Ichigo. They barely manage to kill the hollow.

Although initially reluctant to accept the heavy responsibility, he begins eliminating some more hollows and discovers that several of his friends and classmates are spiritually aware and have powers of their own.
