Bleach is a long-running, action-oriented anime and manga series about soul reapers, spirits who guide people into the afterlife. Though there are many characters in the show, much of the plot revolves around Ichigo Kurosaki, a teenager who suddenly becomes a soul reaper, and his friends, many of whom have their own powers.

The show has been running on Adult Swim since 2006. Those who watch the ratings bumps that often run during commercial breaks will note that it is one of the network's most popular anime series. However, Bleach has been in repeats since late last fall.

Episode 168 marks the beginning of "The New Captain Shūsuke Amagai" story arc.
