Question about Bleach and which episodes are to be considered "canon"...
Okay, so I'm starting Bleach from the very beginning and instead of putting up with long stretches of filler I was wondering if anyone could tell me which episodes are considered to be "canon" within the Bleach community? In other words, which episodes should I watch to get the main story and which ones should I skip?
Any help on this would be appreciated, and thanks in advance! :anime:
Yeah, I have a....

The episodes that don't adapt from the comic are still pretty good on their own. Anyhow:
List of filler episodes

Okay I will do my best, might be some one shot fillers and I will include a mini filler that was indented for the manga in these episodes list.
Episodes 343- present
There are things from the Bount arc (episodes 64-109) that is mentioned in canon episodes including the introduction of three characters, so you might be a little lost if you skip it. Episode 109 is the last episode of the Bount arc, but it has lots of canon material.
I recommend you check out episode 342, it is non canon but important to the plot.
