Best Bleach Episodes

The Top Ten

1 Episode 272 - Ichigo vs Ulquiorra Conclusion

Ulquiorra gets 'the heart' and that is everything Bleach has to offer.

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.

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!

This whole fight had me on the edge of my seat and the conclusion made it all the more interesting it was not as predictable as the rest of the series and it's probably one of the best fights throughout the whole series! I also thought the relationship between ulquiorra and orihime was really cute!

2 Episode 54 - Ichigo Saves Rukia

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.

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.

I agree with you completely. I have seen it many times and it is still special to me. Ichigo looks there very good... Like Superman :D

This is definitely the most epic of all of them, he also looks like the the grim reaper.

3 Episode 58 - Ichigo vs Byakuya

The most epic fight in the entire series and one that was just born to be!

Because this is the most amazing fight I have ever seen

I love byakuya he is the best captain ever!

One of the most epic fights in this show. Also Byakuya is so awesome in this episode!

4 Episode 62 - Aizen Betrays Soul Society

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.

It was the whole soul society story line the fact that aizen betrayed them was crazy

I think you r right

5 Episode 309 - Aizen Finally Dies

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.

Simply... Just 22 minuets of perfection was this episode.

Aizen never died. He is still kicking some quincy @$$. Waiting for his reappearance. - admister300

6 Episode 17 - Rukia Is Taken Back to Soul Society

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.

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...

7 Episode 167 - Grimmjow Finally Dies

Really liked his character

Spoiler he comes back in the manga

Awesome ichihime moments

Grimmjow is also ALIVE.
We never saw him die.SPOILER (He returns in the Quincy arc)

8 Episode 308 - Gin Dies

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.

The only episode of any anime that ever actually made me cry. Rest in Peace Gin, you will forever be in our memories.

AWESOME plot twist. Really deepened Gin's character

Rest in Peace, Gin...You'll be loved by Bleach fans forever

9 Episode 342 - Thank You

This was awesome. Love it

So beautiful... I wish there could be more episodes like this, with Ichigo, Rukia, and the others just hanging out and having fun.

I almost cried when I watched this... Him finally letting go of the spirit world, plus the ichiruki feels, was just TOO MUCH

I cried. Like really badly. My mom had to go buy me ice cream and it was strawberry flavored and I cried again.

10 Episode 1 - Ichigo Becomes SoulReaper

Let's be honest you haven't seen the ulquiorra fight against ichigo have you.

Let's be honest. Everything passed Soul Society sucks

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!

Ah ichi is so cute I think isshin is also cute heheh its just a show that leaves you on the edge and like every episode is a to be continued no offense but I actually like the 15 year old carrot top better than than the 17 year old strawbery aka ichigo he has lots of attitude my favorite part is when he flipped the table and said:yeah I belive that along with flying pigs and the tooth fairy oh I also like episode two were rukia forgot who oriheme is and he said:she is in your class RUKIA! GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR BUTT hehehe I also love how in every battle he never gives up he is so sweet sweet sweet s-w-e-e-t ah I love him so much ialso love toshiro I'm at episode 245 I skipped some so if you only saw ep 1 than you probably wont know him its toshiro yay he has AMAZING! Green eyes and BEUTIFULL white hair oh hehehe I mean handsome oh I also loved the part were karine said to yuzu: hey he is a 17 year old teenager he likes that gross stuff he is not an anime character hahaahaha I ...more

The Contenders

11 Episode 38 - Ichigo meets Kenpachi

Best episode ever good fight scene

i loik it

12 Episode 121 - Soulreapers vs Group of Arrancar

The way the captains all fought was amazing

These are the best of all times

Awesome fights that lead up to aziens plans

13 Episode 362 - Kurosaki Ichigo - The Substitute Shinigami!

When ichigo finally gets his Shinigami powers back by a sword with all the captains and vice captains rieatsu and he is way stronger

It's awesome! Too much!

14 Episode 41 - Ichigo Meets Rukia Again
15 Episode 293 - Hitsugaya, Enraged! Blade of Hatred!

Poor Toshiro! Evil Aizen!

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

Poor Hinamori

16 Episode 305 - Delusion Roars! Hisagi, Towards the Hot Springs Inn!

Dude this episode had me going crazy the whole time

17 Episode 192 - Nel Transforms

Nel was awesome and I wish that they had show her more, she was funny and added more to the show, either way the best arc was the first one and after that it has drastically dropped.

Sorry, one of the best shows but deserves better than this. (Bleach KAI anyone)?

Nel is the best!

18 Episode 111 - Shock! The True Characters of the Fathers

Was trying to take this down a rank not raise it...

19 Episode 228 - Summer! Sea! Swimsuit Festival!

Actually, I did research and this episode is canon, a side project in one of the manga. Sorry, but it is canon.

The best filler episode in Bleach!

20 Episode 239 - Hitsugaya vs Hyorinmaru

If your a fan then it good

Toshiro fighting hyourinmaru to return him to his senses and also a flash back of toshiro's past.

21 Episode 366 - Changing History, Unchanging Heart

Cool episode I really enjoyed it

Should be number one

22 Episode 133 - Ikkaku's Hot-Blooded Kendo Tale

Madarame! You're Gonna Pay!

23 Episode 31 - The Resolution To Kill

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

24 Episode 5 - Beat the Invisible Enemy

Best and most funny ep
with Chad hitting blindly hitting the hollow
Chad launching Rukia hey new girl if u ask me I think there's some problem with this plan, don't worry combining your brute strength with my Intelligence is the best chance here, u must be smart cause this seems really stupid to me, let me do the thinking for the both of us funny scenes

25 Episode 313 - The Man Who Risks His Life in the 11th Division

One of my Favorite filler episodes

26 Episode 366 - Ichigo Says His Goodbyes

I thought that episode 366 was a fantastic episode, not just because you get to see Ichigo's new Bankai, but the way that the last few moments of the episode came to a close. I loved it, and it made me sad to see it end.

100000% Correct, I had the same feelings.

27 Episode 20 - Ichimaru Gin’s Shadow

Ichigo learns Zangetsu’s name and trains with Urahara. Basically awesome

28 Episode 299 - Ikkaku and Yumichika in the World of the Living
29 Episode 229 - Ikkaku and Yumichika in the World of the Living

I loved this episode! It was so funny and I love Ikkaku and Yumichika episodes

30 Episode 252 - Byakuya, the Truth Behind His Betrayal

Epic! Watch the episode and 253 also.

Byakuya vs Koga.
By far the best bleach episode.

Now, that is something worth wtchg more than twice...Byakuya never ceases to impress me...the most best character of his is that he never allows me to read his character...

31 Episode 303 - The New Year episode

The funniest episode.

32 Episode 56 - Supersonic Battle! Determine the Goddess of Battle

Mostly awesome because of Yuroichi and Sui-Fēng, and their crazy techniques but also the whole thing with Captain Yamamoto
