The Bleach Filler Episode Guide & Review
Bleach contains a lot of filler episodes and here is my review & guide of these episodes. I hope it will help you through the difficult proces of deciding whether you
want to watch that filler episode or arc. I have watched all the fillers atleast once so i know what i am talking about, i could even be considered a professional filler reviewer.
The Karakura heroes omake(specials). Very boring fillers starring don Kanonji and the two kids from Urahara.
Bount Filler Arc
Surprisingly the bount leader wants revenge on soul society and creates an army of soul collecting mosquito-like things. These mosquitos are sucking every human in Karakura dry and are bringing the 'liquid-soul-semen' back to the bount. The bount then drink the stuff and power up. At this point Ichigo gets really angry and kills the leader. After the kill he even feels sorry for him. End of story, nothing changed.
Stolen Hogyoku Filler Arc
A small filler story about how Rukia gets lost in the forest of menos while Ichigo and the others try to find her again. It ads to the atmosphere a bit so its watchable.
The New Captain Shusuke Amagai Filler Arc
Together with some other people who hate soul society, he plans to kill yamamoto. With his parasite-like sword (bakkoto), which sucks its user dry after they use it too much, he starts a big-ass fight in order to kill Yamamoto. Once Ichigo gets mad though, Amagai gets his ass handed to him and dies. Good riddance! The captain Amagai filler arc should be skipped in my opinion.
Boring and annoying filler side stories. These are the fillers you definitely want to skip.
Episodes 227 – 230 are random filler episodes containing the infamous beach episode 228: “Summer! Sea! Swimsuit Festival!!” In this filler episode Rangiku and Orihime are comparing boob-size when suddenly a giant watermellon hollow with tentacles appears. Ofcourse this hollow only snatches up girls.
If fanservice is your thing, this is THE episode for you!
The Zanpakuto Unknown Tales Filler arc
Episode 284 is a flashback about how Harribel climbed her way up the arrancar ladder through eating other arrancars. This suggests that arrancar are a kind of cannibal pokemons.
In episode 287 Ichigo becomes a Japanese Alladin. Enough said.
298-299 These episodes are a promotion for the bleach movie Hell Chapter. Skip
303-305 + 311-316 are just the casual 1-boring-story-per-episode fillers.
The Gotei 13 Invasion Arc
New year special. Incredibly dumb episode.
