Which Is Better: the Bleach Anime or Manga?

Both the Bleach manga and anime are great, considering that the anime adaptation is not that different from its source material.

The only difference is that there are some anime-original stories about the characters to give them more depth.

The Bleach movies are non-canon, which means they are anime-original.

They are also not related to the main arc so you can skip the Bleach films if you want to focus on the main storyline.

The Bleach films are great though, so feel free to check them out when you have free time.

The live-action film also just retells the story so you can skip it too if you want.
