* AmericansHateTingle: Amusingly subverted. Americans ''adore'' Kenpachu for his hyper-aggressiveness and "manlist of men" persona. Consequently, while not outright reviled in Japan, he's ''considerably'' less popular.

Added DiffLines:

** [[DiscOneFinalBoss Sosuke]] [[Characters/BleachAizenAndHisCohorts Aizen]] is a [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] {{Ubermensch}} with a [[AGodAmI god complex]] who considers himself [[LackOfEmpathy above the notions of morality and decency]] adopted by "lesser beings." Uncaring for anyone but himself, Aizen has a habit of using and betraying anyone close to him. Examples of this include [[MadScientist testing out an experiment]] by turning his former captain, Shinji Hirako, into a monstrous abomination along with seven other Shinigami officers, trying to [[BadBoss kill his subordinate Harribel]] once [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness she had outlived her usefulness]], and [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaling his devoutly loyal lieutenant]], Momo Hinamori, while hugging her, leaving her traumatized for months. Later, Aizen would outdo himself by [[MasterOfIllusion creating illusions]] that tricked Momo's best friend, Hitsugaya, into nearly killing her. Aizen also used Wonderweiss Margera as a tool, erasing all of his intelligence, speech, memory, reasoning and emotions just to turn him into a PowerNullifier against one man's weapon. Once Wonderweiss had successfully absorbed the flames of this person's weapon, Aizen had arranged it so that Wonderweiss self-destructed, nearly taking out a city with him in the process. Finally, when Aizen had achieved {{Physical God}}hood, he tested out his abilities by calmly walking through a human city, knowing that his powers caused anyone who came into close proximity with him to blow up. In the end Aizen ended up killing over a dozen civilians, and planned on doing the same to [[TheHero Ichigo's]] human friends just so he could mock Ichigo by hanging up their corpses on display.

* FanonDiscontinuity: A sizable chunk of the fandom likes to ignore pretty much anything post Aizen's defeat, finding it to be either a waste of time (the Fullbringer arc), or a particularly bad case of ArcFatigue (the Thousand Year Blood War arc). The epilogue is an especially contentious point, in part due to [[spoiler:the {{Official Couple}}s being Ichigo with Orihime and Rukia with Renji.]]

** The canonicity of ongoing light novel series overseen and co-written by Kubo as a continuation of the manga is a sticking point for many fans, who refuse to acknowledge anything not part of the manga and anime or solely written by Kubo himself to be canon.

* ClicheStorm: Some would have preferred to series to continue with the urban fantasy setting seen at the beginning of the series, feeling that as it rolled on, the story would often slow to a halt from battles lasting longer than they should when antagonists keep suddenly but predictably pulling out new ways to survive would-be finishers, and the story itself suffered from recycled plot threads like one DamselInDistress arc shortly after another.

* VanillaProtagonist: A criticism occasionally thrown at him. Ichigo's only known goal is to protect his loved ones, a reactive goal that requires a threat to proactively put them in danger in the first place. The story has put him out of the spotlight for prolonged periods, which is either a good sign of a strong supporting cast or further hammers in how uninteresting he is.

* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Maybe one of the most iconic examples in all anime fandoms. In a series filled to the brim with active fighters, her purely supportive role rubs people the wrong way (her only truly offensive technique runs on her killing intent, which is nonexistent). Her NeutralFemale status during Hueco Mundo is particularly notorious, as she fails to even consistently provide a supportive role due for reasons that the story seemed intent to avoid properly defining.

Orihime is a [[TheMedic pacifistic healer]] with [[BarrierWarrior shielding powers]], who is singled out both in-universe and out as being unsuited for battle, leading to a kidnapping that split the fandom due to abuse of different kinds being [[TraumaCongaLine heaped upon her]] without respite until it reaches [[HeroicBSOD breaking point]]. Part of the fandom believed this to be the natural outcome of her type of powers and personality, given that even talented fighters were struggling to succeed. Part of the fandom believed this made her irredeemable for not transforming into a warrior character to fight back in a successful way. The debate became high profile enough to reach the [[Creator/TiteKubo creator's]] ears, whereupon he [[WordOfGod stepped in]] to explain that Orihime's experience is a natural human reaction to the level of abuse and stress she had suffered. The fandom uses the author's statement on both sides of the debate.

* ShipsThatPassInTheNight: Toshiro/Karin are one, especially since the only meet in anime filler-arc. Tatsuki/Renji have a few fanfics and basically any other pairings that she might have other Ichigo and Orihime and her friends.
