  1. if possible dont watch the bount arc its complete torture and never ending has to be the worst arc of the whole series.

  2. doesn’t bleach technically have only 5 real arcs in the whole series? We got the Substitute arc (1), Soul Society arc (2), Arrancar Arc (3), Lost agent Arc (4), and finally the Thousand-Year Blood War arc (5)

    • Technically although filler the bount arc has to count because alot of characters and powers explained there become Canon in thousand year blood war

  3. To anyone who’s watched the filler arcs — Which is your favourite? Which ones are worth watching and which are really bad? cuz I finished watching Bleach exactly today, (without fillers) and I want to go back and watch all the fillers.

    • Haven’t watched Gotei 13 Invading Army so i won’t give any opinion on that, but for the rest:
      – Bount Arc (0/10): Absolute trash, one of the worst arcs i’ve ever watched in my anime watching career. For comparision, it’s as bad as Boruto’s filler arcs, but at least Boruto’s filler arcs end pretty quick, this Bount arc lasts forever, completely torture.
      – The New Captain Shūsuke Amagai Arc (5.5/10): Not really good but not that bad, it gives you somewhat relaxation when the new captain is such a cutie and badass at the same time, the plot twist is ok, not mind blowing but at least when watching it i can tell the scripting team did actually put some effort onto the script. Whatever i just complimented are for the first episodes and the last episodes. The middle episodes of that arc are kinda trash but of course not Bount-level trash.
      – Zanpakutō Unknown Tales Arc (7-10): Pretty well done with the plot, like they could be an official arc and i wouln’t mind at all. So i would recommend this arc

  4. Im currently on the Arrancar arrival arc and theres a lot of good fillers it it. But its getting kinda boring because everyone is still training and fillers are good but also boring. When will Ichigo op? i like op characters
