Do You Need to Watch Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 1 Before Part 2?
Yes, if you want to check out Bleach, you will need to watch TYBW Part 1 first, the entire sequel series is an adaptation of the eponymous final manga arc. It’s also a magnificent, loyal, filler-free production with fantastic visuals that’ll surely please any fan, but the core argument for watching it in order is the plot. The story will lack context if you watch Part 2 first, and if this is a question at all, then the bigger question on peoples’ minds should be:
Do You Need to Watch Bleach Before TYBW?
This one is a more loaded question. The first Bleach anime was not exactly bold territory for Shonen anime at the time, turning out to be the least-memorable of the Big Three adaptations. However, leaning into the previous point, watching Bleach gives greater context on the scale and significance of the conflict in TYBW along with building up its characters. But if you choose this route, just know: this series has the highest concentration of filler out of the Big Three, so use this guide to skip the unnecessary bits.
