I heard Kubo named it after something having to do with music called Bleach. Not sure if it was true.

I thought it either had to do with:

1. The main character's hair.
2. How he didn't fit in with the rest of his family.
3. How it was up to them to get rid of all the dark bad dudes and stuff.

I just sorta jumped in on Bleach a month or two back so if you want a first impression kind of thing here it is... I thought they named it Bleach because of how bleach erases stuff, so it's like a metaphor for the stuff happening in the show, how the things you think are real or just or right can just disappaer with one truth. Like a stain from a shirt. I know it's sorta deep but I'm a deep thinker. Now you all probably hate me for making you think on a Sunday. Lol. :lol:

It had to do with Ichigo's spirit energy and how his eyes glew bright blue or something like that

i heard that its called bleach because bleach means "protecter" and the show is basically about protecting stuff close to you. i dunno if that's true though...

That would clear a lot of stuff up if it did mean protector, and it would make sense, but in what launge would bleach mean protector, I though bleach was just bleach, you know a stain removal thing? but if it does meen that its cool, I've never heard that though, has anyone else here heard of it? 8-)

Ill just jump into this to point out the creator never answered a direct question about the naming so there is no "REAL" answer.

Now please continue the conversation as I love all the different interpretations.

As its Chinese name is DEATH GOD~~~~~it sounds more suitable.

Well, it is just a free translation. bleach doesn't mean death god.
For example, the ancient Chinese novel <Journey To the West> was ever translated into <Monkey King> in English. It sounds strange for us too!

I'm pretty sure it is because Ichigo has yellow hair, and other humans think he bleached it even though it is naturally blonde

Screw all of u people that dont bother to even try bleach its just like Naruto. It doesnt make sense unless u watch it from the beginning. Its an awesome show (but not near as good as Naruto) Any way I got this answer out of the shonen jump manga, they call it bleach because Kubo was going to name it after the color of the soul reapers uniforms, but black would be a boring name, so he decided to make it the opposite of black which is white, but white is a boring name to but another name for the color white is bleach so that is what he made it because it sounded cool.

That's interesting, I started Bleach in the Middle of the anime but I'm grasping it. But your right it's nowhere near as good as naruto, but I like it a lot.!! ^(00)^

The episode when Ichigo fights Bleach, and I also read the manga in Wal-Mart. Bleach looks basically exactly like Ichigo only pale white at first, then he gets the skull mask thingy, and with a tail and just freaky looking.

From what i heard his inner hollow is named Ogihci cuz its ichigo backwards.

My friend told me that its called bleach because while the cleaning solution called bleach cleans your clothes, the shinigami are clensing the souls when they send them to the soul society. same thing with the hollows because they clense the souls of the hollows when they slay them.

maybe Ogihci is his name, idk about if the hallow's name is Bleach, that's just what my friend told me. Sorry if information is incorrect though :mrgreen:

Its called bleach because originally it was supposed to be named after something about the color black because the show is generally about death, but Tite Kubo couldnt come up with a good enough name. so instead of using pure black as the basis, he used white, which has a ton of different names, like Bleach. :D or something like that. i read it in the Shonen Jump magazines.
