Bleach Filler List and Order to Watch – GUIDE 2023!

To watch only the canon episodes of the anime, we will need a bleach filler list, so with this guide we can skip all the unnecessary episodes. So far, Bleach has 379 episodes divided into 17 seasons or arcs, of which 156 are filler episodes, 5 mixed and 7 special, this will be modified as the last arc of the manga "thousand year blood war" is being adapted.

Bleach filler episodes make up 42% of the series, a high percentage for the number of episodes it has. If we consider only the canon episodes, the anime would have 217 episodes, which is equivalent to 58% of the anime, a similar percentage to Naruto Shippuden.

Bleach Filler List and Order to Watch
With this bleach watch guide, you will be able to know which episodes are filler or canon.

The bleach fillers are entertaining, except for the bount arc, which spans episodes 64-109, the drawback of the original arcs is the amount of filler that was added, making them somewhat uncomfortable to watch. It is advisable to skip the filler episodes to move forward with the canonical story, as we did with the One Piece anime.

Bleach Filler Episode Guide and Watch Order

In this list, the episodes are marked as filler, canon or mixed, the latter will detail the minutes that you only have to watch. The films and ovas will be located in chronological order. At the end of this guide I will mention in in what chapter of the manga does the anime end on and where to start reading the manga after anime.


These episodes are not adapted from the manga, so it does not follow the original story, we skip these episodes.


These episodes are adapted from the manga, but they have filler fragments, we only watch the marked minutes.


These episodes are adapted to 100% of the manga that follows the story, we watch it all.


These episodes are adapted from single chapters of the manga (one-shot) or are compilation episodes, it is optional to watch them.

What chapter of the manga is Bleach anime on?

Last Episode Corresponds to: We started reading from:

The last episode that aired is 379 (13 from Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War) corresponding to Chapters 538, 539, 540, 541 and 542 (págs. 1-13) of the manga, which is where the anime leave off.


So if we want to continue the manga after the anime, we must start reading from Chapter 542 (pág. 14) of the manga, this corresponds to Volume 61 (contains chapters 541 to 550).

Bleach Filler Arcs to Watch and Skip

Bleach has 5 filler arcs in total, these were not adapted from the manga, so we can skip them if we wish, but if we want to know if some of these arcs are good, then I will recommend the ones worth watching or the ones you can skip:

  • The Bount Arc – 64-91: Not recommended. This arc consists of 2 parts, this is the first and they tell us the events after the battle in soul society, the new villains are the Bounts. Of the fillers that were added in bleach, this arc is definitely one of the most controversial, since although the story is not bad, the number of episodes that the full arc has is too much for original material.
  • Bount Assault on Soul Society Arc – 92-109: Not recommended. This is the second part of the Bount Arc, here they narrate the objective of the villains and their offspring, as I mentioned too long for a saga that does not belong to the manga.
  • The New Captain Shūsuke Amagai Arc – 168-189: Not recommended. Arc totally irrelevant, but what most upset the fans is that they did not even bother to add it properly, I mention this because it does not have continuity to the series, but instead a new story is inserted whose characters do not appear or are mentioned in the following manga adaptations.
  • Zanpakutō Unknown Tales Arc – 230-265: Recommended. This arc tells us about a rebellion of the spirits of the zanpakuto against their masters, the Shinigami. As it happened in other filler arcs, it is in charge of narrating events totally unrelated to the manga's history and have no place in the chronological axis of the series. Despite this, I recommend it because although it interrupts the plot, we get to know the personality of the swords and their relationship with their bearers.
  • Gotei 13 Invading Army Arc – 317-342: Recommended. This filler arc consists of 26 episodes and is the best in my point of view, it gives us a break after the Arrancar Arc and fits the story well to the point of confusing us and is filler or canon. It's about Kageroza Inaba's plans for revenge.

How to Watch Bleach in Order with Movies?

Bleach has 4 movies and 2 ovas, which do not have continuity in the canonical story, but its chronological order can be known, this through the characters that appear, the abilities and growth. Therefore, the order to watch the bleach movies and ovas is as follows:

  1. Bleach: The first thing we have to watch is the first part of the anime that has 366 episodes, it adapts from chapter 1 to 479 of the manga. This anime also has 4 movies and 2 ovules, but they are not necessary to watch, but if you want to see them, this is their chronological order within the anime:
    1. OVA 1: Memories in the Rain: We see it after episode 9, but it's optional since this is a pilot episode, it's a special version of episodes 8-9, and it was made before the anime premiered in Japan.
    2. OVA 2: The Sealed Sword Frenzy: We watch it after episode 63. It was shown on the Bleach Jump Festa 2005 Anime Tour. It seems to take place shortly after the Soul Society Saga.
    3. Movie 1: Memories of Nobody: We watch it after episode 109. It relates that in the City of Karakura, a series of unidentified spirits have appeared, while in Soul Society it is reflected in the real world. A mysterious shinigami named Senna has appeared before Ichigo along with a man named Ganryu, who leads a group of people named Dark Ones.
    4. Movie 2: The DiamondDust Rebellion: We watch it after episode 153. It begins when a valuable artifact known as the "King's Seal" (Oin) is stolen by a mysterious group, when they are transferring it to Soul Society. Tōshirō Hitsugaya, the captain of the Tenth Division, who was assigned to carry the seal, had fought the leader of the group of thieves and a little later mysteriously disappeared, remaining as the culprit.
    5. Movie 3: Fade to Black: We watch it after episode 198. All the members of Soul Society suffer a fit of amnesia and now no one has any memories of Rukia and Ichigo. The darkness in Rukia's past is revealed and the "truth" that is locked within her memories.
    6. Movie 4: Jigoku Hen: We watch it after episode 299. Ichigo and his friends enter Hell, the place where hollows who committed misdeeds while they were human are sent. Once there they are guided by Kokutō to rescue Yuzu and save the world from the prisoners of hell.
  2. Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War: This is the second part of the anime, it has only 13 episodes, it adapts from chapter 480 to 542 of the manga. The original Japanese title is Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen.
  3. Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War - The Separation: It is the third part of the anime, it will premiere in July 2023. The original Japanese title is Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen - Ketsubetsu-tan.
