Bleach is renowned for its thrilling plot and anime arcs that have always surprised viewers. By popularity, we have ranked the top five Bleach arcs.
AGENT OF THE SHINIGAMI ARC:
The arc from Season 1 is the initial arc of the entire series, and it serves as the catalyst for the plot’s advancement. It was established in Karakura town when Rukia went to the world of departing to investigate the unexpected increase of hollow appearances. The main characters, Ichigo, Rukia, Chad, Orihime, and Uryu, as well as their developing companions, were a key part of the arc. This was the arc in which Ichigo took over as the substitute shinigami after Rukia attempted to transfer some of her powers but lost them all to Ichigo. Rukia’s life was in jeopardy, but Urahara brought the scene to a close-by informing everyone about the only option to save her.
SNEAK ENTRY IN THE SOUL SOCIETY ARC:
The Sneak Entry arc of The Soul Society was written specifically to show Ichigo and his companions’ entrance into the soul society. Although Urahara shines in every arc, he has also established himself as a significant figure in this one. He brought Ichigo and his companions to Yoruichi, who aided them in their ascension into the soul society. This arc is one of the best since it features numerous exciting showdowns. Ichigo vs. Kenpachi follows the battle between Renji and Ichigo. Aizen decides to begin his plot while playing the ‘Crucifixion’ in this arc. This arc saw the debut of characters from the soul society, taking the story to a new level of intrigue.
ARRACNCAR DOWNFALL ARC:
Because of the action we saw between Ulquiorra and Ichigo, this Arc deserves to be here. Ichigo is revealed to be Vasto Lorde. The Arrancar Arc came to an end when all of the Espadas and Arracncars were defeated by one of the Captains or Vice Captains. While we also get to see Vizards collaborating with them to put an end to the chaos. We saw fierce combat between Kyouraku and Stark, as well as Hitsugaya and Harribel, during this arc. The show-stopper, though, was the duel between Ichigo and Ulquiorra. After transforming into Vasto Lorde and killing Ulquiorra in a flash, Ichigo’s power skyrocketed.
THE BATTLE FOR THE SOUL KING ARC:
Some part of the Thousand-Year Blood War Arc has been in the top three since it was announced as the most anticipated arc. Yhwach stabbed the soul king in the chest, and Ichigo inadvertently sliced him in half. Ichigo and his pals, as well as all the shinigami in Soul Society, were putting up a valiant struggle to keep Soul King safe. Yoruichi is shown fighting against Askin Nakk Le Vaar. He was, however, too much for her to bear. Aside from that, Urahara’s Bankai was revealed when he finished the fight with Grimmjow’s help. Yes, you read that correctly. In the thousand-year blood war, you’ll meet Grimmjow again, this time standing by Ichigo.
SOUL SOCIETY RESCUE:
You may now wonder why this Arc is the best of all. If you are a true Bleach fan, you may already be aware of the cause. If that is not the case, I will assist you. By far the best finale of the entire first arc is the Soul Society Rescue arc. This arc featured all of the major events, such as the awakening of Ichigo’s, Uryuu’s, and other characters’ powers. Ichigo worked hard to attain his Bankai, which we finally get to see. With a single arrow, Uryuu demolished Mayuri’s Konjiki Ashisogi Jizou. This makes it a perfect end to the series which made all the fans over the globe extremely nostalgic and emotional as they witness their favorite characters indulge in their final battle.
