Bleach Filler(Manga):

When we talk about Bleach filler arcs or Bleach Filler List , we must point out the main differences between them and the canon (the original story by Tite Kubo). Bleach Filler List is a term used to identify content not made by the original author of the series which was added later on in order to create more story. Some manga authors make their own filler but most prefer to delegate this task to others and in turn offer an easier and faster production process. Let’s take Naruto as an example: Masashi Kishimoto, creator of Naruto makes his own fillers for that specific anime adaptation because he has complete creative control. You can see the list on sparkanime.

Filler in Bleach :Shueisha

Filler in Bleach is something that has never been done before. The main reason is that Tite Kubo, creator of Bleach , always tries to keep his stories close to real life and not get into exaggeration or fantasy-like scenarios. This means he spends a lot more time thinking about the story than other mangaka, which makes it harder for him to “think out of the box” and create content similar to what one would expect from a filler: Ichigo and friends going on some random adventure fighting random enemies and winning with no problems and coming back to the canon storyline later on… I mean we think we’ve seen all types of fillers throughout our lives…? But this isn’t case with Bleach fillers.Canon Plot:

Kubo simply has no time to think about anything but the canon plot. He works six days a week, 17 hours a day and barely sleeps while skipping meals, which means he has very little time for himself outside of work. Kubo’s schedule is like that because there are many people depending on him: His company, Shueisha; Weekly Shonen Jump readers; Manga fans around Japan; Anime fans around the world; all of Japan, who admires him enough to have a manga named after him. And then there are his family and friends.

Kubo’s Original Story:

Tite Kubo’s original story is also very popular because Bleach has never fallen into common shonen manga tropes such as ‘The power of friendship overcomes everything’ (winning without trying), characters not dying no matter how powerful their enemies are (super-powered midget hero saves the day). There’s no powerful friendship or love interest to give Ichigo special powers; he has them from start to finish. The author doesn’t make up new Plot armor every other arc like Naruto does (OMG Sasuke got stabbed but survived by summoning Manda like nothing happened Other anime/manga authors have to have their own way of defeating the protagonist so that they don’t look bad for being unable to defeat him, which happens a lot in shonen manga.

Purpose of Fillers in Bleach:

The purpose of fillers in Bleach is mainly entertainment: They do something different from the original story while keeping the essence of Bleach. The series follows Ichigo, a high school student who becomes a substitute Soul Reaper (Shinigami) – a protector of souls headed for the afterlife – when he unintentionally steals the powers of Rukia Kuchiki , one of his classmates with this special ability. Her job was to send good spirits (Pluses) to their afterlife called Soul Society . However, because Ichigo lost most of his powers during another fight with an enemy named Grand Fisher that happened before the series started, he cannot send Pluses there by himself.

Characters in Bleach:

The series also follows several other characters who fight against the hollows. The Arrancars are former inhabitants of Hueco Mundo who have gained spiritual powers after being turned into Hollows by former Soul Reaper leader Aizen . One of these Arrancars is Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez , an antagonist seeking to overthrow Ulquiorra Cifer (one of the four most powerful Espada) as ruler of Hueco Mundo and can be considered one of Ichigo’s biggest rivals. Another Arrancar is Nnoitora Jiruga , an antagonist who fights with the sentient, autonomous, weaponized version of his own flesh and blood called a Resurrección .

Aizen’s Defeat:

After Aizen’s defeat, Soul Society sends a group of Shinigami to arrest Ichigo and return Rukia to Soul Society. After she is taken back, her sentence is suspended and she now must help train Ichigo to achieve Bankai (which he does in short order). This arc introduces several new characters which include Yoruichi Shihoin, Kisuke Urahara , Tessai Tsukabishi , Hiyori Sarugaki (who likes to beat up on Shinji Hirako), Love Aikawa, Jidanbō and Kūkaku Shiba . During these events, several story arcs take place that involve the Vandenreich , Yhwach (the leader), The Stern Ritter (of which As Nodt is a member) Uryū’s mother, Ryuken Ishida , Quilge Opie , Bau of the Hollows who fought Ichigo’s father Masaki Kurosaki , 12th Division Captains Sōsuke Aizen and Gin Ichimaru , Captain-Commander Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto , his Lieutenant Chōjirō Sasakibe and Kushimaru Kuriarare.

The Main Story Arc:

This story arc shows different fights with different enemies other than just hollows. This arc is about Aizen’s betrayal, the Vizards , Ichigo’s training with Urahara and also involves a character named Orihime Inoue who has healing powers.

After the events in Soul Society, Kisuke Urahara puts together an organization called Xcution so that he can help restore Ichigo’s lost Soul Reaper powers. They are initially successful in transferring some of Ichigo’s power into Rukia for her trial but something goes wrong after it is completed. The result causes both teenagers to become powerless, falling into a comatose state, which forces Orihime to confront her brother  Kūgo Ginjō  in order to get them out of their predicament. However this fails when Tsukishima  kills Kūgo with his Fullbring , who is later revived by a man named Kokutō.

This arc shows more enemies and how Tsubine Zarkonheinz after joining the Vandenreich becomes a problem for Ichigo. After being defeated, he turns into Hueco Mundo where he meets Coyote Starrk  and Lilynette Gingerbuck . In Hueco Mundo, Nel Tu , an Arrancar under Aaroniero Arruruerie , who has been promoted to the status of “Espada” thanks to Aizen’s betrayal. Meanwhile, Mayuri Kurotsuchi invents the Sōkyoku stand-alone gig which gives Orihime her powers back and sends her to Hueco Mundo where she meets Nel after regaining her powers.


The next arc focuses on the Vandenreich fighting against Soul Society, with all three captains of the Stealth Force leading their teams into battle along with other Shinigami and Visored .Coyote Starrk and Shunsui Kyōraku fight later in this story arc as well as Uryū Ishida fighting against Asguiaro Ebern. This arc also focuses on Ichigo’s training under Hiyori Sarugaki , who is an old friend of his father Masaki Kurosaki , which ends up not working out.

Ichigo Rematch:

After that arc, Ichigo has a rematch with Yammy Llargo whom he easily beats with his Hollow mask. After defeating Yammy, Ichigo finally gets to fight against the Espada Szayel Aporro Granz . He then has a rematch with Ulquiorra who is now at his full strength after being given some of Yammy’s power by Aizen.Ulquiorra shows his true form and explains that he was holding back earlier out of fear of harming Orihime (whom Aizen had kidnapped).

After some more training, Uryū participates in the final battle against the Vandenreich leader Yhwach , along with several members of Xcution and Ichigo’s friends Chad , Renji Abarai , Rukia Kuchiki , Toshiro Hitsugaya , Rangiku Matsumoto , Kenpachi Zaraki and Yachiru Kusajishi

Ichigo Training:

The final arc has Ichigo training with the Visored Hiyori Sarugaki to teach him how to properly use his mask. He then fights against Apacci, who is now under the command of the Primera Espada Tier Harribel . This story arc also shows more about Aizen’s past as well as Orihime being given several different tasks assigned by Sōsuke Aizen himself. Tatsuki Arisawa joins Ichigo on his quest for revenge but does not fight in any battles. After this, Ichigo goes up against Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez  and kills him after a long battle which takes place in Karakura Town, involving various members of the Gotei 13 as well as their allies from Hueco Mundo.

Ichigo vs Yammy:

The next story arc shows Ichigo vs. Yammy accompanied by his fellow Espada Ulquiorra Cifer , Grimmjow, Luppi Antenor and Wonderweiss Margela . This story arc also shows more of Mayuri Kurotsuchi’s involvement in this war and how he comes into contact with a young man named Nemu Kurotsuchi whom he has raised since she was a child. It is later revealed that Orihime Inoue had been given a special task by Aizen to purify the “Hōgyoku” which she succeeds in doing so thanks to an encounter earlier on with Ryūken Ishida at the Urahara Shop.

The Last Arc of Bleach:

The last arc of Bleach shows Ichigo vs. Kenpachi Zaraki in a fight that takes place on an industrial-like platform with various weapons strewn across it, while all their allies watch from below. After this battle ends, Aizen is put into his prison where he awaits for all of Soul Society to find out about him being behind most if not all the events of Bleach , but Aizen mocks him by asking what will happen once they get there. The final few chapters show some major battles including Ichigo vs. Grimmjow again after he was freed from his prison by Orihime during her encounter with Nel Tu, and then Yammy Llargo & Ulquiorra Cifer vs. Rukia Kuchiki , Renji Abarai , & Yasutora Sado after Yammy is alerted by the presence of Ichigo’s friends in Hueco Mundo. The arc ends with Ichigo himself getting imprisoned by Aizen along with many other members of the Gotei 13, believing them to be traitors after they find out about Aizen’s betrayal, but Ichigo is released thanks to Kisuke Urahara  and Yoruichi Shihoin who help him break out just as Aizen leaves Soul Society .

Grimmjow Gets Healed:

After that battle, it shows Grimmjow being healed from his wounds suffered during his earlier battle against Ichigo and becoming stronger than ever before. Afterwards, an Arrancar named Ulquiorra Cifer (whose real name is Äs Nödt ) comes to Ichigo’s hometown of Karakura Town and begins wreaking havoc with his Resurrección , Segunda Etapa . During this time, it shows the Shinigami finally arriving at Hueco Mundo to begin their fight against Aizen along with both Chad & Orihime. The last few arcs involve Ichigo getting more involved in the war between Soul Society & Hueco Mundo as he fights against Grimmjow again, Harribel ‘s Fracciones including her Espada replacement (who was originally Wonderweiss Margela who became an Arrancar not long before Ichigo had a rematch with Grimmjow), Ulquiorra, Yammy, and Ulquiorra again in his released state.

The Final Arc:

The final arc of Bleach shows Ichigo vs. Aizen which results in both of them entering into their Resurreccion forms . However, the result of this battle is unknown until it’s revealed that Ichigo had won after Gin Ichimaru stabbed Aizen from behind for betraying everyone. However, in an attempt to stop Aizen when he sees him holding Orihime who attempts to kill her in front of everyone; Hitsugaya stabs him with his sword (named Hyourinmaru) but due to an earlier attempt by Ichimaru to cut off his arm, the blow wasn’t enough to completely kill him leading up to Aizen possessing the Hogyoku to become more powerful than ever before.

This leads up to Ichigo’s second battle with Aizen which ends with him defeating Aizen once and for all by using his new-found power called Mugetsu , but this leads up to both Soul Society & Hueco Mundo believing everyone is dead including Ichigo himself, but it is then revealed that everyone alive are saved thanks to Orihime’s abilities on her own as she uses it on everybody who had died on both sides of the war. The final chapter shows Ichigo waking up in his room wondering if everything was just a dream stating that he feels like he had “been asleep for about two or three days”, but thinking about it also felt like something else happened.

Founder of Quincy:

It is then revealed that Yhwach , the founder of Quincy, is beginning to take over Soul Society with his army of Quincies along with the fact that he uses a technique called Auswählen which allowed him to take certain people who were in the area when it was used and turned them into members of his own personal guard called Sternritters . Ichigo’s final battle is against Yhwach where he gains back most of his lost power from fighting Aizen. However, the fight ends in a tie as both are able to survive each other’s finishing moves.

How Many Fillers Does Bleach Have?

Bleach has had 62 “filler” episodes (not including the two movies) over the course of 318 regular aired episodes. This averages out to about one filler for every four canon episodes. The number is not exact, however, because if you include the OVAs and full-length movies, there are 86 total non-canon scenes. The first 76 scenes are part of the original story arc that retells Ichigo’s life up to his battle with Grand Fisher in episode 63. These scenes are technically considered canon, but they’re mostly just recaps with added dialogue and animation changes. They comprise about 10% of Bleach , whereas all other fillers combine for 90%. Keep this in mind when comparing different versions of Bleach to each other.

The following 62 scenes are sometimes referred to as the “Soul Society filler”, though that is not a formal, recognized term in Japan. These non-canon scenes continue the story of Bleach from just after Ichigo’s battle with Grand Fisher through his entrance into Soul Society and his battles with members of Soul Society’s Gotei 13. This section spans about 85% of Bleach .

Bleach Film:

In 2009, 20th Century Fox announced the production of the live action Bleach film for a 2011 release. To tie in with this announcement, Tite Kubo created two original side stories which were later released in book form as Bleach : The Hell Verse . These books comprise about 5% of Bleach , making them one out every twenty-two scenes.

Following the end of the Soul Society arc, Bleach entered its latest story arc, which was later split into two separate arcs due to its length. The first is called “Arrancar: The Arrival” and the second is named “The New Captain Shūsuke Amagai arc”. Both are considered canon because they are based on concepts by Tite Kubo . However, these arcs only comprise about 5% of Bleach , making them one out every twenty-two scenes.

Can You Skip Bleach Anime:

Yes, you can skip Bleach filler episodes after episode 167 because the anime is now “back on track”. Long Answer: No, not really. If you don’t want to watch any fillers whatsoever then just quit watching Bleach at 167 episodes, but be prepared for subpar storytelling compared to the manga. However it’s perfectly fine if you simply continue watching Bleach even though there are fillers up until current episode 337 (as of writing). It doesn’t interfere too much with canon events so far and has its own merits as well. Such as character development and additional backstory on characters and certain aspects of the world building like Soul Society or Quincy society which make it more credible and enjoyable overall. Why? Because unlike other anime like Naruto, Bleach doesn’t have too many fillers spread out. It’s just 167 filler episodes in total!

How Many Filler Episodes Are There?

There are several types of filler episodes/arcs: There are completely unrelated side stories which only share the same world as Bleach but have nothing to do with Ichigo, Rukia or Soul for example. Those are not canon and they are usually not connected to each other either. These fillers have no place in the main story line so you can completely skip them without any negative effects on your understanding of Bleach canon. There are filler arcs which include a few canon episodes with a certain event that is connected within the same arc, but these events aren’t important for understanding or enjoying Bleach later on.

Fillers Between 167 and 175:

Most fillers between 167 and 175 are canon but most fillers after 175 aren’t canon or only partially. How can I watch Bleach then? If you don’t want to miss out on character development or backstory then just stop watching Bleach at episode 167 directly after Aizen’s betrayal. This will allow you to watch about 59 filler episodes. That’s not too much but it already means you have roughly half of the fillers left behind, so they won’t interfere with canon events anymore which is great. But if you feel comfortable enough that you are now caught up with Bleach then I would recommend you continue watching because there are some beautiful moments in the following arcs as well.
