Top 10 Best Bleach EpisodesBleach is a 2004 anime based on a manga of the same name. It follows teenager Ichigo Kurosaki, who inherits the powers of a Soul Reaper and is tasked with defending humans from evil spirits.
Ichigo's bankai+ Byakuya's bankai= win of epic proportions. Besides, we got to see Byakuya as a three dimensional character and realized he's not just a guy hell bent on killing his sister. And Byakuya and Ichigo are one the best characters of Bleach, so this episode was obviously amazing!
The most epic fight in the entire series and one that was just born to be!
One of the most epic fights in this show. Also Byakuya is so awesome in this episode!
I love byakuya he is the best captain ever!
This episode is basically the climax of the entire series and the most well plotted episode probably in the entire series. Aizen betraying was something most people probably did not see coming and that is why this episode deserves to be number one!
This episode had many details to it and it surprised a lot of people. Since no one saw that Aizen betraying them was coming they weren't prepared for it at all.
This episode was truly surprising! Actually, everything was suprisig about aizen! But, I like him, becuase he's smart enough to risk being a captain for that betrayl.
It was the whole soul society story line the fact that aizen betrayed them was crazy
The action is crazy and awesome and on top of that we have a sweet touching moment where the viewers actually may feel some form of compassion or sadness from the enemy dying. Making someone who put a hole into Ichigo's chest into someone that the viewers would be sad for in such a short period of time is not an easy task.
The actual high point of the series, the Espada arc holds up the best, and makes you root for the main character the most. Much better than the 7 minute fight against Sosuke Aizen.
Ulquiorra's al last managed to get an idea, of what the heart is and it is a nice character development in the ens, plus the action wow.
I hope this episode is a Ichigo vs Ulquiorra Conclusion and not a Ulquiorra-Conclusion. Boy, I miss Ulquiorra's character so much now. T_T This episode was so emotional and dramatic. :)) We love you Ulqui-chan!
Shows how badass Kenpachi is. He actually breaks Zangetsu!
Haha, the graphics weren't as good as the future Episodes. But what was happening was pretty nice. ( Thought the Characters always looked angry ) Please don't blame me. >_> It was nice seeing everyone battling Ichigo... Probably.?
Loved the way Ichigo just made everyone look like fools in this episode. Saving Rukia was always his plan and he managed to do that and look awesome doing so. I miss when Soul Society were the bad guys.
For first timers watching Bleach this was a GREAT episode! Its full of epic moments, and raises our judgement towards Ichigo. My personal favorite episode.
My personal favorite episode, see it a dozen times and I have a sound file on my mp3 player far at work. nothing de-stresses my better than listening to my top 20 bleach episodes
Such a shame that this episode is underrated. This honestly is one of my favorite episodes of Bleach as not only does it have one of the best Bleach fights of all time, but we see a lot of characterization in Ichigo and we see him fare better against Renji than before, showing how much he's grown. Not to mention it has my favorite Ichigo quote of all time! - TheDarkOne_221b
This battle was personal for Uryu because Kurotsuchi, one of the most vile inhuman psychos in the series, murdered and experimented on his people. Good thing Uryu wins
Nice episode. We also see Ichigo going berserk for the first time. It was also a very sad episode. I cried when I saw this episode. This episode is pure epicness. That's the reason why I loved the first arc of Bleach...
The saddest and most intense episode in the first season. This episode is godly considering how Ichigo is thrown to the ground and left to bleed even by Rukia!
Byakuya at the time makes Ichigo look like a dog that has just been abandoned by its owner.
This episode could make even Chuck Norris cry.
Ichigo vs Renji and Ichigo vs Byakuya were two of the best fights in the series, and now both opponents are finally duking it out
Ichigo and Renji take on Aizen and lose, showing how powerful our main antagonist is
Aizen didn't actually die. He was merely imprisoned and sentenced to 18,000 years in jail. However, due to his rather snide comments, his sentence was extended a few thousand years. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Aizen is immortal.
Simply because of the episode itself, based on the "amazing" conclusion & Urahara's mastermind.
Aizen LIVES! You See him alive at the end of the Episode, and later in the Quincy arc.
Aizen never died. He is still kicking some quincy @$$. Waiting for his reappearance.
Gin and Matsumoto are my favorite characters (with Byakuya), so it was really awesome to see more of their story. This episode was so beautiful, I couldn't help a few tears.
Yeah..Gin was totally awesome...I hate the fact that he died...who knows if he died for Rangiku or to retrieve Hogyoku...Its driving me crazy...deciding which one of it was his true intention
You saw in another episode that azien had someone take Matsumoto's spirit or whatever... I believe that Gin was trying to get her spirit thing back from the hogyoku and give it to her.
The only episode of any anime that ever actually made me cry. Rest in Peace Gin, you will forever be in our memories.
It actually woulda been the perfect end for the series...
I personally liked it more than the actual end. The episode leaves you sad. You actually feel the feelings that Ichogo feels. You actually feel as if your chest goes hollow, like there's something missing.
So beautiful... I wish there could be more episodes like this, with Ichigo, Rukia, and the others just hanging out and having fun.
I cried. Like really badly. My mom had to go buy me ice cream and it was strawberry flavored and I cried again.
I almost cried when I watched this... Him finally letting go of the spirit world, plus the ichiruki feels, was just TOO MUCH
Let's be honest first 15 episodes were just boring, then Renji and Byakuya arives and everything changes. P.S. Ichigo vs Ulquiorra and Nnoitra vs Kenpachi are the best fights!
Let's be honest you haven't seen the ulquiorra fight against ichigo have you.
It's awesome! Too much!
The reveal that they'd stabbed Hinamori, the build up to it and Aizen slaying everyone afterward was so good. My favorite episode.
I almost cried when hinamori said " Shiro-chan, why? "
If I could I woild have smashed Aizen's face laugh out loud
