Episodes of the popular anime (Japanese animation) series "Bleach" are available to stream for free online. Viz.com, Crunchyroll, and Hulu are three of the most popular websites to visit to watch "Bleach" without a subscription to a streaming-video service.
The most important distinctions between free services to watch episodes of "Bleach" online are whether or not the service offers both the "subbed" (Japanese audio with English subtitles) version and the "dubbed" (Japanese audio replaced with English audio) version of the show and whether the service makes the episodes available to view without having to watch advertisements while viewing.
Hundreds of episodes of "Bleach" were produced, however, not all of the episodes have been dubbed into English. For English-speaking viewers, it is necessary to watch the subbed version of "Bleach" to view every episode. The subbed version of the series is available without having to sign up or pay for a subscription through Crunchyroll,com, a website dedicated to streaming anime, and it is available to view without watching any advertisements.
For viewers who wish to watch "Bleach" with English audio, Hulu and Viz.com offer both the subbed versions of all of the episodes produced and the more limited number of episodes which have been dubbed into English. Hulu receives the content directly from Viz.com, and both sites provide episodes of "Bleach" for free and without having to log in or register. However, the free version of these websites requires viewers to watch advertisements while viewing.
For viewers already paying for the Hulu Plus commercial-free option or a subscription to popular US-based streaming service Netflix, both the subbed and dubbed episodes can be watched commercial-free.
