The Top Ten Best Bleach Episodes

1 Episode 58 - Unseal! The Black Blade, the Miraculous Power

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!

2 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!

3 Episode 62 - Gather Together! Group of the Strongest Shinigami!

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

4 Episode 38 - Desperation! The Broken Zangetsu

Best episode ever good fight scene

Shows how badass Kenpachi is. He actually breaks Zangetsu! - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

i loik it

5 Episode 54 - An Accomplished Oath! Get back 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.

6 Episode 44 - Ishida Ultimate Power!

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 - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

7 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

Ichigo's battle with Renji is one of the best in the series - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

8 Episode 17 - Ichigo Dies!

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...

9 Episode 61 - Aizen Stands! Horrible Ambitions

Ichigo and Renji take on Aizen and lose, showing how powerful our main antagonist is - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

10 Episode 309 - Fierce Fighting Conclusion! Release, the Final Getsuga Tensho!

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

The Newcomers

? Episode 47 - The Avengers
? Episode 43 - The Despicable Shinigami

The Contenders

11 Episode 52 - Renji, Oath of the Soul! Death Match with Byakuya

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 - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

12 Episode 53 - Gin Ichimaru's Temptation, Resolution Shattered

Kenpachi gets deprived of his senses by Tosen, but still wins - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

13 Episode 167 - The Moment of Conclusion, The End of Grimmjow

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)

14 Episode 308 - Goodbye...Rangiku

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

15 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.

16 Episode 1 - The Day I Became a Shinigami

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

17 Episode 121 - Clash! The Protector vs. The Bearer

The way the captains all fought was amazing

These are the best of all times

Awesome fights that lead up to aziens plans

18 Episode 362 - Revival! Substitute Shinigami: Ichigo Kurosaki!

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!

19 Episode 41 - Reunion, Ichigo and Rukia
20 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

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

Dude this episode had me going crazy the whole time

22 Episode 192 - Nel's Secret, A Busty Beauty Joins the Battle!?

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!

23 Episode 111 - Shock! The Father's True Identity

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

24 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!

25 Episode 239 - The Awakening Hyorinmaru! Hitsugaya's Fierce Fight

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.

26 Episode 366 - Changing History, Unchanging Heart

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.

Cool episode I really enjoyed it

Should be number one

100000% Correct, I had the same feelings.

27 Episode 133 - Ikkaku: The Hot-Blooded Kendo Tale

Madarame! You're Gonna Pay!

28 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

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

One of my Favorite filler episodes

30 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

31 Episode 20 - Ichimaru Gin’s Shadow

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

32 Episode 299 - Theatre Opening Commemoration! The Hell Verse: Prologue
33 Episode 229 - Cry of the Soul? The Rug Shinigami is Born!

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

35 Episode 59 - Conclusion of the Death Match! White Pride and Black Desire
36 Episode 60 - Reality of the Despair, the Assassin's Dagger is Swung

40 Episode 32 - Stars and the Stray
41 Episode 36 - Zaraki Kenpachi Approaches!
42 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...

43 Episode 303 - Real World and Shinigami! The New Year Special!

The funniest episode.
