According to BasouKazuma:
"We basically release the Bleach episodes as soon as we receive the subtitles from VIZ Media. So the release schedule is entirely determinant on that."

When pressed for more he said:
"1. I wouldn't know of any way to pressure them. They are subtitling Naruto and Bleach on CR and they probably translate other stuff too so they may not have the time.
2. We can only use VIZ Media's subtitles for Naruto and Bleach. For most other shows, it's usually up to us to hire the translation company.
3. I don't know the specifics but VIZ probably has localization rights for the shows which includes control over subtitles. Having 1 set of subtitles for TV, DVD, and the Online streaming makes things less confusing."

Any idea when the missing Bleach episodes will be available? Episodes 175-265?
I cancelled my membership when I realized that 3 seasons were missing. Would prefer to watch my anime using the iPhone app with crunchyroll. iTunes has these eps but the dubbing is horrible.

What's the deal Crunchyroll????!!!!

As of now, one new back-catalog episode is added every week, alongside the simulcast. By that pace, they should all be released in a little more than 90 weeks (slightly less than 2 years).

I am sure though, that if CR will be allowed to release more episodes, they will do so immediately. I honestly doubt it will take 2 years...

I also noticed this and people say that VIZ needs to sub them which I don't doubt but... Could it be also that maybe they just don't want to upload them online yet seeing as to how new episodes are being aired on Adult Swim?

It IS in a place that's picking up over here after all. I was about to sign up for the premium membership so I could continue watching and not have to wait for new Saturday episodes but once I saw they weren't available I decided to wait. I'm gonna wait until the TV eps catch up to the available ones here then sign up for it. And I really wanted to see Ichigo fight Ulquiorra already too darn it :/

As well as subbing concerns and protocol, Viz will release their 9th box set containing episodes 146-156 of Bleach on the 21st of June. So therefore anything after that they probably are trying to limit its distribution to garner as many customers as they can for street dates and sales. Though, like it was mentioned, it can't possibly take Viz two years to circulate the remaining episodes in a fashion that they deem appropriate.

And I too, am anticipating the showdown between Ulquiorra and Ichigo!

Ugh me too! I can't wait for them to fight. I know I could watch it on here but then I'd only want to re-watch it in English again.

Personally I think Bleach has a pretty good dub compared to other animes. They might have given Ichigo a lighter toned voice than the Japanese one but J.Y.B. IS pretty talented.

Also thanks for pointing out that box set release tidbit. I haven't been keeping up with that lately, (no job >//> ), but now that you mention it, that probably IS one of the reasons for the online wait. Oh well, can't blame them for trying to make a profit. I know if I was working I'd probably be out there buying it.

well im lucky to dvr bleach on adult swim. it kind of pisses me off that the americans voices of bleach totally sucks. Its seems the Japanese have more pride in their anime, and take there rolls more serious, than us americans do. But i cant complain too much, because im having the chance to watch the seasons 10-13.

As 4 VIZ , they are located here in my home city of San Francisco rite? buhahahahahahahaha!!!!!! I should start a rally to force VIZ to hurry it up

I know this isn't on crunchyroll and also doesn't offer the benefit of watching via our ipad 2's/iphone 4's (which I LOVE on both), but you can watch all of these with great sub quality and (not my preference) dubs as well on animefreak .tv I have a paid account here and would much rather watch them from the app while I walk, which is on average 3 miles a night, but they're missing the whole 3 season chunk in the middle and also the quality auto-adjusts to the point of being illegible and also constantly drops out of sync between the video/audio. It's just MUCH too frustrating at this point to be enjoyable to me. I personally have a megavideo account so I guess that gives me a benefit from using animefreak to watch the missing ones since that's the main video host they use. I hope the guys here at crunchyroll don't mind me referencing that site considering I would only use it for episodes that they don't have available yet. Crunchyroll is much better in my opinion, the quality of the video and dubs is superb excluding the quality being used while on 3G abroad.

I would love to see these seasons on CR...

I'm something of a disc collector so I might break down and buy the seasons for DVD. I wonder if anyone knows of some good/cheap vendors for this?

This is a link to the calender, it'll tell you when the next episodes will be launched http://www.crunchyroll.com/launchcalendar

I just got up to ep-205 before I realised that not all of season 11 was there

Not disrespecting CR, but I'm going to use another site to Legally watch Bleach 'till ses14 when I can use CR again:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0053ATVV6/ref=atv_dp_season_select?ie=UTF8&redirect=true
(the seasons are split differently but the episodes are still obvs in the same order )

Hope this helps! :)

And a site I just saw it on is: http://www.otakucastle.com/product_info.php?products_id=13184742
Expensive but hey

the reson that sesons 10-13 are missing is because they are non relevent archs that dont deal with the main story plot
