* DeaderThanDisco: During it's early years, Bleach would become one of the most popular Shonen series running, alongside ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' and ''Manga/OnePiece''. During the Hueco Mundo arc, the series would face increasing criticism for, among other things, excessive amounts of {{padding}}, controversial plot twists, questionable handling of certain characters and plot points and a main villain that was far too powerful. The series would lose popularity, leading to the anime being cancelled in 2012. Despite the cancellation of the anime and the fact that the series had become a source of derision for many anime watchers, Bleach would still maintain a fanbase heading into the final arc. However, although the Thousand Year Blood War arc was initially praised for better pacing and for resolving many long standing plotlines, the arc would eventually suffer the same problems the earlier arcs had, leading to many readers swearing off the series for good. Eventually, the readership declined to the point that the series was cancelled outright, leading to a rushed ending that finished off what was left of the fanbase. Nowadays, Bleach is seen as a once-promising series that peaked too early, ultimately suffering one of the longest declines in Shonen history.

* {{FetishFuel}} Kukaku Shiba. From all the shots of her bare feet to her trampling men a lot, she certainly would be counted as this.

* ClicheStorm: Many feel that not only did they [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot waste a perfectly good plot]], but that plot was eliminated in favor of a standard, run-of-the-mill shonen series. Some believe that this started since the Soul Society arc. Others feel that it happened with the Hueco Mundo or Fake Karakura arcs.

Some believe that this started since the Soul Society arc. Others feel that tropes cemented it happened with the Hueco Mundo or Fake Karakura arcs.as such.

* FreudWasRight: A ''Bleach'' character book lists the locations of the Espada's [[TheHeartless Hollow holes]], with a few being oddly specific and causing a stir. Halibel's is her womb, Zommari's is his right nipple, while Szayelaporro's is his ''glans''. And they have been [[{{Squick}} wearing them on their face]]. It may be time to awkwardly re-examine the Zanpakuto.

* NoYay: Any scene involving Nnoitra and Orihime. It's quite clear what he wants to do. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Ulquiorra even calls him on it]]. In the transition from manga to anime, some of the subtext was toned down; for instance, where the manga has Nnoitra [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything shoves his fingers down Orihime's mouth and throat]] ([[Radar/{{Bleach}} actually enacting a popular kink in Japanese porn]]) during Ichigo's fight with Tesla, in the anime he covers her mouth with his hand.

** After Yhwach [[spoiler: shatters Ichigo's true bankai, he immediately absorbs Ichigo's Quincy and Hollow powers. However, as deduced and proven by Urahara, Hollow reiatsu is literal poison to Quincies, therefore this should not have been possible, or at the very least shown some visible detriment to Yhwach. To be fair, it wouldn't be the first [[StoryBreakerPower Story Breaking]] thing Yhwach has done, but its still a glaring oversight to a critically established plot point]].
