The Arrancar Arc technically encapsulates the period of time shortly after Ichigo and his friends' return from the Soul Society to Ichigo saying goodbye to Rukia after the battle with Aizen. However, the anime and most fans consider it to be made of 2 smaller mini-arcs; the Hueco Mundo Arc and the Fake Karakura Town Arc. The Hueco Mundo Arc covers the beginning of the Arrancar Arc to the point where Aizen leaves for Karakura Town.
