22 Fans Point Out Something About ‘Bleach’ We Never Noticed Before

List Rules

Vote up the most interesting Bleach fan details.

Although the Bleach anime stopped airing in 2012, it's still considered one of the best shonen anime series to date. Bleach is a filler-heavy series, and while a lot of it is based off of established story elements, there are many details that manga-only fans could have missed. On the flip side, there are also a number of details from the manga that were completely omitted in the anime.

Whether you've only ever watched the series or preferred to read it instead, this list has details from both the anime adaptation and manga. Here's a list of some interesting things that you might've missed while enjoying the series. Be warned: spoilers do lie ahead for any fans who haven't read the Thousand Year Blood War Arc.

    From Redditor u/Gine2896:

    It's a Quincy technique called "blue vene"; it uses blood kind [of] like an armor, stopping bleeding and shielding the user from damage.

    From Redditor u/laur11ee:

    Kinda random, but I think in chapter 150, Nanao is specifically noted to be disturbed/upset seeing Sokyoku - Rukia about to be executed and all - and then in chapter 652, it’s revealed that her mom was executed…
