Is Bleach Thousand Year Blood War Filler

No, Thousand Year Blood War is not a new anime filler. It adapts the final arc of the Bleach manga, which was published from 2011 to 2016.

However, there is a strong possibility that some filler completely Anime original episodes will be added to this arc, especially with this arc being the last of the entire series.

Is Bleach Filler Worth Watching?

Bleach filler episodes are certainly worth watching, BUT the real question is are they a must-watch? the answer to this second question is No! and that’s because of different reasons:

The best way to watch this Anime is to skip the filler at first, since you can do it why not? after all the canon content is without a doubt the best part of this Anime! and we believe that this is the best way to have the greatest experience watching Bleach.

Then, if you feel like you became a hardcore Bleach fan or you just crave more of this series you can go back and watch the fillers or even rewatch the whole series with the fillers.

Also, if somebody wants to catch up to the series as fast as possible to be able to watch the new season as fresh as possible then thinking that the fillers are a must-watch, in this case, could be a reason why the same person will give up the idea of watching the whole show especially if he just wanna experience the week to week released episodes of this massively popular series and be a part of the community!

In short, skip the fillers for now and get back to them later.
