We recommend you watch Bleach in chronological order.
However, Bleach has a lot of fillers throughout its runtime that you can skip. Especially, the Bount arc that goes from episodes 64 to 91.
This arc is infamous among long-term viewers for having no consequence to the main story.
Also, this arc is anime only, do with that information what you want.
Bleach is a long anime that can take over a week to finish if you binge.
If you’re not quite ready for that kind of commitment yet, we’ve got a list of short anime you could watch over the weekend.
Thank you for reading!
