    So... Have you ever wondered why Bleach is called "Bleach"? I have. So please write what you think
    It is stupid to be afraid to die, but the most stupid thing is to be afraid to live.

    It's not that much of a mystery...

    Bleach is called "Bleach" because that is what Ichigo acts as. He's is the good guy (the "white knight" if you will), and he removes the bad guys (stains) from the world.

    there are a bunch of theories:

    Tite Kubo himself ( the creator of bleach ) gave two reasons to calling it that. One was a symbolic reason. As the soulreapers cleanse souls, it's like they are "bleaching" their souls. Like how bleaching in a clothes sense means to remove stains and blemishes, the shinigami remove sin and corruption from the souls. The other reason he gave is because "Bleach" was the name of his favorite Nirvana (thats right, kurt kobain nirvana) album.

    Kaien's soul was bleached by Rukia's zanpaktou to be reborn as Ichigo.

    Rukia's clothes were bleached from black to white when Ichigo stole her power.

    Bleach can mean both Ichigo's bleached hair as well as the shinigami's job of "bleaching" the sins of the Hollows and sending them to Soul Society.

    yahoo answers

    Answer from Tite Kubo himself from the Nov 2008 issue of Shonen Jump, page 19, top of the page: after scrapping the original title since it no longer fit with the story line, he thought about calling it black but thought it was boring, white on the other hand can suggest black as a complementary color. so he chose Bleach to evoke the impression of the color white.
    The anime Bleach is called Bleach, because when you bleach black hair, it has been said that it turns orange instead of blond(e).

    wiki answers

    1) His Hair

    2) Some theorize that Tite Kubo is a huge Nirvana fan...hence the name Bleach (I believe one of their albums was called Bleach in the past)
    This isn't just a guess. Kubo Tite said in an interview that he is a Nirvana fan.

    I think there was another possibility but I'm not sure.
    Other theories...

    3) Kaien's soul was bleached by Rukia's zanpaktou to be reborn as Ichigo.

    4) Rukia's clothes were bleached from black to white when Ichigo stole her power.

    Then there is my favorite theory:

    5) All of the above. He just took the name of the album, turned it into a theme and ran with it because he liked the word.

    Wow, haha, I had always wondered this as well. Thanks for that! I think the theory that makes most sense is the one about the soul reapers bleaching or cleansing the souls of the hollows. But, the other theories could equally be correct too so... Who knows?

    Hair actually turns orange if you bleach it? So in a sense everyone can become like carrot top then. *shudders*

    And I just assumed it was called bleach because of the cleansing of souls but its nice to hear that its actually THE reason.

    I thinks it is called bleach because Ichigo bleached his hair

    How I see it is that bleach is use to remove stains, and the show adapts the name so it won't stain their reputation when they released all those darn fillers.

    No, not everyone's turns orange if you bleach it. Just dark haired people, but it really depends on *how* much you bleach it. Many Japanese walk around with blonde hair because they bleached it that much. Never mind orange.

    However-to remain on topic...Bleach was called Bleach basically because of Ichigo's "bleached" hair look.

    BUT if you *really* wanna know why...Ask the master mind behind the original story Tite Kubo. Or-just hunt down interviews with him. He prolly spills the reason to reporters.

    My personal Theory.

    Bleach is a "Cleanser" and one of the main points of a Soul Reaper's job is to "Cleanse" Hollows. Bleach also make thinks white. White is "Pure", again another "cleansing" reference. Thats just what I came up with.

    It's actually called Bleach because there will be a character called Bleach who is just so awesome, the series is named after him.
