I re watching Bleach with all the fillers, the problem is that The New Captain, Shusuke Amagai Arc interrupts the story. So my question is where could this filler arc fit in most seamlessly ?


I haven't seen past there yet but from my understanding the next arc after that continues on from after Ichigo's fight with Grimmjow in Las Noches as indicated by wikipedia

The episodes' plot continues to follow Ichigo Kurosaki's and his friends' battle against the Espada, the strongest of former Soul Reaper Captain Sōsuke Aizen's army, to rescue Orihime Inoue.

Source: Wikipedia - Bleach (Season 10)

also i do recall in the first episode of Season 9 the narration says the follow events occur before the sneak entry into Hueco Mundo. there is also some evidence to indicate that this is before then mainly that Chad and Rukia aren't thought to have been killed as it is implied near to the end of Season 9.

Ofcause being filler it's not canon and the contradicting evidence is with Chad and Uryu who were actually still training before the sneak entry yet they show to have their new powers which were only revealed after they entered Hueco Mundo (remember that Chad was being trained by Kisuke and Kisuke snuck Uryu out of the training room he was in when he expected Ichigo to defy the Soul Society and rescue Orihime)

Ignoring this contradiction one can assume that it takes place before Orihime was kidnapped but after Ichigo started training with the Visord (due to him being able to Hollowfy)

  • if i thought this occurred after they get back from Hueco Mundo i would be wondering where Nel is. even if they had to stay in Hueco Mundo the impact of their parting is now greatly less than what i would be because we know ahead of time she's not coming out of Hueco Mundo – Memor-X Oct 25 '16 at 1:43
  • It's one of those arcs where they spontaneously jumped out of the Hueco Mundo business into god knows when, hell in the post credit gag sequences not even Ichigo knows what the bloody hell is going on – IG_42 Oct 25 '16 at 2:11

I know this question is old but I'd like to say that it is shown that Chad uses his upgraded right arm and new left arm in the filler, which means that it can only have happened after his fight with the fallen Espada which was when he received those new powers.


The beginning states that "this is a story that COULD have happened" which means, in my mind, that it takes place in an alternate reality where Orihime wasnt kidnapped (yet) and so the team is training to fight Aizen whenever he ends up attacking, and thus have gained their new abilities before such an attack would occur.
