Can you watch Bleach on Crunchyroll?

Crunchyroll is the first go-to place all anime fans check when it comes to streaming both old and classic anime as well as the new up-and-coming hits. It’s the biggest company in licensing Japanese animated content for the Western Market, and 9 out of 10 times, you’re going to find just about anything on Crunchyroll. However, Bleach isn’t on it.

All episodes and seasons of Bleach were removed back in 2022 ahead of the Thousand-Year Blood War release, and the show is no longer available on the service. Bleach got the boot from Crunchyroll because Funimation Global Group, now under Disney’s umbrella, snagged the streaming rights in October 2022. Fans worried about potential censorship and translation changes, but Funimation reassured everyone that they’re sticking to the original Japanese version.

Bleach is no longer on Netflix for US viewers

Netflix doesn’t have an overly large library of anime titles as it likes to stick with its originals, but in recent years it brought many major titles onto the platform, and at one point in time, Bleach was on it as well. But once again, due to licensing Bleach got taken down, and viewers attempting to stream the anime from the US, Canada, and UK won’t be able to do it.

If you’re from Italy, India, and Japan, you will be able to watch the anime however, it’s available in some other countries as well.

Can you watch Bleach on Disney+?

So we’ve already mentioned that Bleach got taken down from Crunchyroll due to a licensing agreement with Disney, and this is where the anime movie, absolutely all seasons and episodes are on the streaming service, including the latest Thousand-Year Blood War. If Bleach ever gets more material to adapt into anime, it’s going to be available for streaming there as well.

By extension, you can watch Bleach on Hulu as well

Since Disney owns Hulu, you can also watch anime on that streaming service as well. Hulu has all seasons of Bleach, including Thousand-Year Blood War. This might change in the future, but it doesn’t seem likely, since Hulu has been steadily growing its library of anime hits now, including Attack on Titan, My Hero Academia, One Punch Man, and other famous titles.

Other places to watch Bleach?

Now other major streaming services don’t have Bleach in their library, but you can always purchase the show, which is most likely the best solution if you hate the licensing agreements, and the fact that you might subscribe to a certain streaming service only for your favorite content gets taken down.

You can purchase Bleach on Apple TV, Amazon, Vudu, Microsoft, and Google Play digital marketplaces. It’s pricy, but it’s worth it in the long run.
