Bleach Filler List: An Extensive Yet Easy To Follow Guide

Bleach will always be one of the reasons for the success of the Shonen genre around the globe. Besides Naruto, One Piece, and Dragon Ball, you can like or dislike it, but you cannot deny the contribution Bleach made in both the mediums of anime and manga.

Created by Tite Kubo, Bleach soon became the talk of the town, not only for its intriguing plot and cool action sequences but also for the style statement every character of Bleach portrayed. If not for Bleach, the trend of anime and clothing brand collaboration wouldn’t have gained so much attention and popularity.

With that said, Bleach anime has been a topic of discussion due to the high percentage of filler episodes which hampers the flow for the majority of the anime viewers. But, if you are new to anime, you won’t even notice the filler episodes until you read the manga.

People love to rewatch anime, especially when there’s a sequel coming. With the final arc of the manga adapted into an anime in October 2022, the Bleach (2004) anime rose from the ashes. And to help people like you, who want a filler-free watching experience, I have made this detailed Bleach filler list with dedicated tables for each arc.

Bleach has a total of 366 anime episodes, which are divided into 16 arcs.

So, without further ado, let’s begin the Bleach Filler List.

Can You Skip The Fillers In Bleach?

In the Bleach anime, there are a total of 163 filler episodes, out of which six seasons (Season 4,5,7,9,13,15) consist of 137 filler episodes. So, while watching if you keep a close eye on these 6 seasons (arcs) you can skip nearly 82.5% of the filler episodes in the Bleach anime.

As for skipping the filler episodes in Bleach, I would leave that decision to you. Because everyone has different preferences, just like all filler episodes can’t be bad, similarly not all of them are worth your time either.

If you are rewatching the Bleach anime before the release of the sequel, Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Arc in October 2022, you can follow the filler guide and skip all filler episodes. That won’t hinder the storyline, giving you a clean experience.

And for those who are watching Bleach for the first time, I will write down the plots of the six seasons which consist of most of the fillers in Bleach anime. If the plot looks interesting to you, you can go ahead and watch it. And if you don’t like them, just skip those seasons.

With that, I present you with the entirety of Bleach Filler List. I hope this filler list was able to answer all your questions regarding the filler episodes and filler arcs in the Bleach anime.
