Only three seasons of Bleach are available on Netflix consisting of over 60 episodes. This falls quite far behind the 366 episodes that actually exist.

Neither of the movies, Hell Verse or Fade to Black is scheduled for removal in September.


Naruto Series Leaving Netflix

The Naruto series is also scheduled for removal. The series sees an orphaned boy harness the power of a spirit demon that lives within him.

Three seasons consisting of three seasons consisting of 156 episodes.

Much like Bleach, none of the multiple movies that are available on the service are scheduled for removal.


As for where the shows will end up should they leave Netflix then your next streaming service will certainly be Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll contains a much larger collection of episodes of both of these shows compared to Netflix.

Both titles are scheduled for removal on September 1st, 2018. Keep this article bookmarked as we’ll be updating it as we hear more.
