Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.

the main characters in both series have very strong personalities that bring about the best of the other characters and make them do things that they wouldn't have if they hadn't met them. both series include lots of action with good story and plot in the different arcs of the story.
HIGH intense action, massive magical powers and wonderful art (most of the time...) both these series are masterful succesors to the Dragonball Z formula. Though these two series are extremely more intelligent and better written than DBZ. If you cant see a resemblance between Naruto and Ichigo... I give up.
Do you like anime that contain some nice fighting scenes? Do you hate it when the fighting seems to become a purpose in itself, like in for instance DBZ? Do you like anime with well fleshed-out characters with plenty of personality? Do you like it when the physical fights are a reflection of the emotional and ideological struggles of said characters? If you found yourself answering "Yes" to most of these questions, then you're likely to enjoy both "Bleach" and "Naruto".

Hardcore fights for everyone! Though with a story, enjoy! :D What I mean to say is that Bleach has everything Naruto has, and more. It's already a fact that everyone that watches one of these also watches the other, so don't be left out.


Both are long running shows that contain ongoing plots with plenty of action scences. They both have their own humourous parts in addition to the more serious plot lines


Naruto is one of my favorite anime, as is Bleach. If you liked all of the action in Bleach then I'm pretty sure that you'll like Naruto too.


Bleach and Naruto are similar in terms of humour mixed with action. Good character development and plot lines can be found in each. There is also a fantastical quality in Naruto as the ninja possess a power not available to normal humans. Naruto, like Ichigo, has a great power which can be uncontrollable.


In Naruto, you find coming of age teens of varying personalities with specialized techniques in their ninja skills. In Bleach, you find many shinigami of different ranks with unique types of Zanpakuto as well as magical powers. Both stories have complex and well developed plots. The main characters have a lot in common aside from the blonde hair and the stubborn attitude. The biggest ideal they both share is that they both fight for something they want to protect and live their life the way the intend it to, regardless of what others say, regardless of opposing forces, and will put their life at stake to uphold that ideal.


Both Naruto and Bleach are superpower shounen series with a progressive plot and viable bad guys. Following the day-to-day life of the male leads, both series show the development of the weak character into a strong and formidable force to face-off against their foes. Both series are also manga-based.


Bleach and Naruto worlds are different, but the plot is the same: a boy with a sad childhood wants to show that he's unique and special...


Both Bleach and Naruto contain a wide variety of lovable characters that you would surely get attached to. Both also contain awesome fights with a nice display of ninja moves and weapons. If you like intense plots, these both have them!


Both Naruto and Bleach have strong characters, action, and stories that have episodes that keep you coming back for more. If you like action anime with a great story and humor, these are two shows for you.


Both Bleach and Naruto devote a lot of time to fights/battles and just plain action. But, being female, I needed a little more out of my anime than some punching and slashing. When I first began watching these shows, I was so grateful to find that both of these anime have deep and complex stories that serve to hook you right from the start. Both shows also have a great deal of comedy and both Naruto (from Naruto) and Ichigo (from Bleach) share a common quality in that they are having to fight their own internal struggles (albeit Naruto's is more tangible= nine-tailed fox spirit) while trying to protect those dear to them. Both shows have also produced a large number of episodes (Naruto well above 200 and Bleach well above 130). After watching so many episodes, and traveling along with each main character on their respective journeys, you cannot help but become attached to them, to their cause, and to the worlds in which they reside.


Bleach and Naruto are more or less the same thing except instead of the soul reapers in Bleach it's ninjas in Naruto. Both anime are basically superpower and fighting type anime, with a main character who keeps getting stronger and stronger to persevere against all obstacles. Also, in both anime the main character has a close group of friends who usually come close but never surpass the main character in strength. So if you liked the action and story of one of them then the other is an obvious choice.


Naruto has many similar qualities as Bleach. Each has a main character with a "hidden" godlike potential; each story also has quaint romantic subplots that are the cause of comedic moments, and will leave you wondering who ends up with who. Both anime focus around characters who are protecting their loved ones, and create a unique system of fighting. When important battles take place, there is always an emotional and moral meaning that will touch your heart. In the end, you're left with a productive feeling after watching both.


Both Naruto and Bleach share the same kind of feeling and have lots of action, and they both are top quality! And they have aired for a pretty long time, so there are many episodes too. :D


If you liked Bleach or Naruto, you'd like the other. Both have a fair amount of fights, nice stories, many side characters, and my favorite: dramatic scenes. Also, you will see the similarity in Naruto and Ichigo's personalities.


Both Bleach and Naruto are about a 'clumsy' underdog who rises up to protect his friends, and both anime have funny and serious sides to them.


Bleach and Naruto are both long anime with a lot of action and comedy. Bleach has swords and Naruto has special techniques, but they both give you the same feeling. If you liked Bleach or Naruto then you'll also like the other one.


Both Bleach and Naruto are about fighting and kicking bad guys' butts. The only difference is that Naruto has ninja and Bleach has more samurai, but in general they are pretty much alike.  


Naruto is a boy with pure determination and holds a similar position to Ichigo in his quest to become more powerful. The series is full of action with good comedy thrown in from every angle, and every Bleach fan will be able to appreciate it.


Both Naruto and Bleach are large and popular mainstream shounen anime. They have lots of action, a unique idea, a cool wide range of characters, a bit of comedy mixed in, and the odd element of romance. They are always about saving the world, protecting this, proving that, fighting this, and training. If you liked one, you should give the other a shot.   


In both Naruto and Bleach, the main character has a hidden power that makes him stand out above all of the other characters. Both anime have great story lines that draw you into them and you cannot wait for the next episode. If you like either series you will like the other.


Both Naruto and Bleach share great fights with intriguing, genuine characters and fine animation. In addition to that, both share the same humor and provide enough episodes to ensure your addiction for a long time.


Naruto and Bleach are awesome. They revolve around a young boy who must struggle with his losses and find a place for himself in the world. Both boys are clueless when it comes to love - each has a girl who likes them, but is too dense to notice! The stories do not revolve around love, but around the fight between good and evil. Each character must travel to keep his home and life safe, and fight for the greater good of humankind.


Ichigo and Naruto both have a burning passion to protect their dreams. In a way the two characters are very similar. The two anime are both very long and are still ongoing at the time of this recommendation (well, Naruto Shippuden is, not Naruto). Both have an obvious good and bad side but sometimes the line between good and evil gets smudged and it's up to the main characters of the series to reveal the line so that the other characters can see clearly what's going on.


Both Naruto and Bleach have wonderful animation, memorable characters, and some of the best fight scenes in anime. To top it off, both shows have the ability to make you cry and laugh.


Both have the same concept of training to increase strength and protect friends. Bleach has everything Naruto has, good story, good character development, all in all almost anybody who likes Naruto will like Bleach.


If streamline anime is something you enjoy, or if you're getting acquainted with anime in general than either of these series are good. Naruto centers around a cast of younger ninjas who all have different abilities, personalities, and strengths. One individual is particularly gifted or cursed, however one looks at it. This theme is mirrored in Bleach except the main characters are in high school. All of them have unique spiritual powers, and one individual, Ichigo, has hidden potential that can't be matched. Both Naruto and Bleach will provide humor and action along with monotonous moments and "filler" episodes, yet overall both are very good and you can witness the main characters grow throughout the episodes.


Naruto and Bleach are two vastly different animes, yet at the same time they are amazingly similar. Both series are about a boy with vast powers that at times they don't understand, looming in the background and threatening to overtake them if they don't gain control. Though the plots start a bit slow, each soon dives head first into action through story arcs that build and affect the character development. The characters are easy to relate to and very human, plus they all have emotions and their own uniqueness.

Another trait that both share is the comedic aspect that is often present. You can sometimes find yourself exhaling liquid because you took a drink at the wrong time. Both are serious at the right times and full of stunning plot twists and turns that will make you smile, scream, laugh, and cry. The fight scenes are amazing, full of action, and unique in every battle. If you enjoyed one, then you will most definitely enjoy the other.


Both series are fast-paced, action-packed and bursting with comedy. So if you like a good storyline, loveable characters and a good laugh, you'll definitely this show.


Each series is a shonen anime, originally targeted towards a young male audience. Similar in many respects, the growth of both Naruto and Ichigo is constant yet filled with the occasional flux. Both are teenagers thrust into a world of super powered enemies that would see not only themselves, but all they love destroyed and reduced to nothing. Two young boys that fight for those they love against impossible odds.


Both series are shonen, with a young hero on an initiatic quest in a fantasy world. Both features lots of action and badass bad guys.


As Bleach, Naruto has good fighting scenes, comic details and interesting story. Also the animation of both anime was created by the same company - Studio Pierrot. So if you like Bleach, try Naruto too!


In both of these series, friendship plays a big role and there are a lot of situations with saving them. Both of the main characters are striving to become stronger to save them and are conflicted with similar problems.


These are two series that focus heavily on friendship, and involve main characters with incredible resolve.


Both place alot on friendship been a key part in winning a fight. Both are action packed with the main person and their friends fighting to reach their goals.


Both Bleach and Naruto are great Shonen Anime. They both contain great action and deep story plots. They have alot of main characters too.if you like Bleach then you have to watch Naruto.


Both of these series have an "action" kind of mood. They both have a lot of talking which hooks viewers into watching more even though not much has happened. If you like slow paced anime with a lot a fighting like bleach, Naruto is a good show to watch, as both Anime's episode progression almost mirrors each other.


Naruto and Bleach are pretty much the same. Both are about friendship, getting stronger, pursuing your dreams. Both have a little love arcs. And both have long, sometimes too long, battles.


Both are really good anime shows who have a bad ass main charachter that takes it upon himself to make sure that they save the day no matter what happens.


The main character in both series fight with everything they have to protect everyone they love. If you love lots of action with comedy, you will definitly love this.


Naruto and Bleach are alike in multiple ways. Characterization is great, action is constant, storyline still exists, and the show goes on for a long time so you're sure to have something to watch for a long time. Bleach and Naruto share so much that the transition from one to the other will be easy. If you liked Bleach, you'd like Naruto. If you liked Naruto, you'd like Bleach.


Both series are in a way about two boys who gradually discover the powers they have and that they don't have the faith they'd hope to have.

For example, Naruto discovers in time that he has the Nine-Tail Fox sealed inside him and Ichigo discovers he has Death god powers of his own.

So, if you liked Naruto because of his will to become Hokage you'll probably like Bleach too for Ichigo who wants to help everyone in the end. Or if you liked Bleach then you should watch Naruto too.


Both being extremely popular shounen action series with the central themes of becoming stronger in order to be able to protect one's friends and the importance of inner strength, Naruto and Bleach are like two peas in a pod. Also, both shows offer frequent comical reliefs to make sure the atmosphere doesn't get dead-serious. It would be very surprising if you liked one but hated the other.


Both series are about boys that fights not only for themselves, but also for their friends. They start at the bottom and work upwards to the top. If you'd like one, you'd surely like the other.


They're two similiar anime series, both having hot-blooded characters and awesome fights. Everyone is watching one of this series, must watch the other one as well.


Both series are funny and show that with hard work you can achieve anything. Also both series have amazing fight scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat.


If you like Bleach... You like Naruto. They're the same. Both Ichigo and Naruto are willing to save friends and they never give up.

So try watching it! ;)


Although set in different words, those two stories are basically the same: group of friends (with obvious main character), who are some highly skilled fighters, have many troubles and work to do in order to protect themselves and those close to them. Many enemies will appears, many tears will be cried out of sadness or joy, while you will follow them in their every day life as well as important missions.


If you like Bleach, you are definitely bound to be in love with Naruto as well. The main character of both stories have similar reckless personalites as well as beliefs.

The main theme of the two anime seems to be the same again which is more or less, friendship and having enough stength to protect.

Both are action packed and involves heavy fight scenes. It also makes the watchers wonder if there is, or could possibly be, any romance between characters.


If you liked Bleach because of its violence and intriguing storyline, then I would like you to try out Naruto. It's a very nice anime.

The same goes for Bleach - if you liked Naruto because of the great characters and storyline, along with violece, then I encourage you to watch Bleach. I'm quite sure that you would like it.


If you liked the way that you watch Itchigo grow stronger.

You are gonna love watching Naruto for te same reson


Naruto is a good anime and like bleach has many good fight scenes and comic humor, i think they are the same, but with a different plot and characters


Naruto and Bleach. Peanut Butter and Jelly. Those two pairs are one in the same. You simply can't watch One without the other. They're so similar, yet so alike. Both Naruto and Ichigo have that "I'm not givin up until I (insert goal here)" attitude. Both of these anime also tecach you valuble life lessons, which you may have noticed if you already watch one. The most important being "If you care about something/someone Protect it no matter what". Sentimental stuff aside, both shows are packed with action, though two different types of action, they balance eachother out nicely. Among the various action scenes in each series, there's some nice comedy threaded into both. They do have their differences, such as Naruto is a Ninja and Ichigo is a Shinigami leaning more towards the end of Samurai. Also, both anime have the same type of decisive conflicts involved to keep you on your toes as well as various story plots that are just long enough to get the point but not be bored. Honestly now, would you eat a Jelly Sandwich with no Peanut butter? Of corse not! Thats silly. The same goes for watching both Bleach and Naruto.


Both of the series contain a seemingly clueless hero. One has the dream of becoming stronger to protect his friends, and loved ones, the other has a dream of becoming the worlds greatest ninja. Little do they know, however, their journey has only just begun. After completeing part of their goals, and living a fraction of their dreams, the two must now defend the world that they have both come to know and live as a pair of menacing bad guys begin to wreak their towns, dreams, and utlimately, their bodies.


Both series have the typical brash, energetic and wild protagonist who get progressively insanely powerful and have to save the world from various maniacal villains.


Both Naruto and Ichigo have very agressive and courageous personalities and both anime have pretty intense action scenes, with humor intertwined.

However, Beware! If you loved Bleach's story but hated the fillers, Naruto is not much better. You will encounter a lot of fillers towards the end of the series.


Both Naruto and Bleach are shounen anime that focus on watching the central protagonist develop and become stronger. Both also feature a lot of action and fighting. If you liked one then it's worth checking out the other.


Both Naruto and Bleach are shounen anime with lots of action anf fightings and with very strong, impatient and hasty main heroes. Bleach and Naruto are so similar, that If you like the one you'll definitely fall in love with another.


both series is about talent and ability, both series are also adventure, action and much comedy but when it comes it will be really serious


Naruto and Bleach both have a sort of misfit/social outcast as a main character.  Ichigo, Bleach's lead, and Naruto are very straightforward, run n' gun type of guys that knock down buildings and ask questions later.  Despite being bullheaded, they can also be surprisingly clever when they put their mind to it.

Naruto and Bleach both touch on the similar message of gaining power to protect the people that one cares about and to gain acceptance in a sometimes cold world.  They have a similar story structure that involves the characters working hard to gain strength and become skilled fighters out of nessecity, as well as dealing with the responsibility that follows gaining such strength.

If you liked one, you will certainly like the other.


Bleach and Naruto are made by the same person; ergo, the series have numerous similarities. The use of kido and jutsu parallel one another. The character design and locale design is also consistent across both series.


Both series provide you with similar characters, who start off as newbies and as they make friends, enemies and fight their ways through, they realize they have amazing potential and learn what friendship really means! In both Bleach and Naruto, you'll harness action till you drop and every time you are about to watch anime, you won't be able to choose between the two!


Bleach and Naruto both are about becoming stronger to protect the people that the main character cares about. Both series have a similar story that involves the protagonists working hard to gain power and become skilled shinigami or ninja, as well as taking responsibility of becoming so powerful. If you liked Bleach or Naruto, you'll surely like the other.


They both fight in squads, and they have the same action Scenes. Both Animes have AWESOME character. I personally love both.


Naruto is actually the same as Bleach, both has somekind of "suberb" powers. And it usually is like that, that you watch Bleach or Naruto you are destined to watch the other.


These shounen animes have the same basic premis. A group of young specially skilled heroes in search of adventure and to defeat the evil that threatens the greater good around them. Great battles and comedy hijinks accompany them on there journeys. Whilst the theme changes slightly with each anime the engaging story, great characters, exciting fights and comedy are ever present.


Both anime involve fights, special powers, comedy and tons of action. If you liked Bleach give Naruto a try and of course also the other way around.


Both anime have characters with a strong personality. We find in both special powers, and a story very well developed and worked. We can see my style of fighting, and some comedy in history. They are one of the best anime action.


They both have main characters that'll crack you up eventually, and the main guy, the ladies love him :D

They're both great animes that'll have you hooked after the first few episodes!

Bleach is one of my all time favorites and i love Naruto also(:


Both anime's are about the main character who wants to complete his goal and has its own kind of way of making it. During that journey he makes new friends who will help to reach this goal. Also both anime's include good fighting scene's.


If you enjoy Bleach or Naruto then you'd enjoy the other because they are both fighting style anime. Both anime have characters that grow physically and emotionally.They also both have the characters fight stronger and stronger enemies with different abilities. You will become attached to the characters as they progress through their individual stories and attempt to fulfill their lifelong goals.


Naruto and Bleach are very simliar. Both Naruto and Ichigo have a special power inside of them. Watch naruto if you finished all episode of bleach. I think you'd like naruto :)


Come on both are action anime with a heavy emphasis on friendship and getting stronger to protect them. The people who dont like bleach that like naruto just feel like they arent being loyal to naruto, and vice versa. if you watched one and liked it, you will like the other


Both series are long running and meant for the same audience. Lackluster animations, entire seasons of fillers and drawn out battles is what you can expect from both. Although Bleach wins the battle simply because of Naruto the character...


Besides the fact that both of them are shounen and have been running for a long time now, both serieses have similar stories where both talk about abnormal powers and in both the main character is a "good for nothing but fights" idiot type of character who actually has a warm heart and keeps helping those in need. In addition, in both serieses the main character have great intolerable power hidden inside. With all these similarities I'm pretty sure that if you liked one of them you'll like the other ^^


If you like Bleach you will like Naruto. He is loud and strong just like Ichigo. THere are very great fights and the story keeps you interested


a lot of action and conflicts and other stuff that's awesome. If you like bleach than you'll like naruto trust me and if you like naruto than you'll like bleach.


Despite the overall length of the series and the annoying, frequent filler the main stories of both are kind of interesting.  If you enjoy long series like these, but like them to stay strong with the central plot all the way through, I'd suggest Naruto over Bleach


both have similar story line with totally different stotylines , and both try to keep us on the edge of our seats while givin' us a good time too.


These two go hand and hand. There both cool and have different types of fighting but yet neither of them can be beat. there both on par with each other


They don't call either of these one of the BIG THREE for nothing! Both are standard shonen. Power-ups, calling out their attacks, different organizations threatening the main character and his loved ones because of their evil intentions. Both Naruto and Ichigo also have to combat with an inner evil inside them, and hopefully through training and perserverance, harness that evil energy and use it for good.Plus there's barrels-full of characters coming at you left and right, each with their own unique style, hairstyles, mannerisms, attacks, etc. Enough that you'll find at least one character to love and at least one to despise for some reason or another.If you like "never-give-up" and "believe-in-yourself-and-your-friends-to-make-it-to-the-end" mentality and code of honor schtick that comes with many shonen animes, then watch both.


Both main characters have power and a strong willed mind. Both seem to never give up no matter the circunstances and fight mainly for friends. Both develop their powers through out the anime as they keep training and fighting. One as a substitute shinigami and the other one as a ninja. 

However, I think Naruto develops more as a character than Ichigo.If you've watched one you must watch the other. 


both naruto and ichigo train hard to do better so that they can protect thier friends.they encounter many obstacles but manage to get past them with will power.


To make long story short they have the same feeling. Great animes both. If you've seen one, you cannot dislike the other.

Both main characters have a light hair color (blond (yellow) for Naruto, orange for Ichigo), even though the animes are not named each after the main character, they have similar construction of the story , they both involve a teenage boy which has great superpowers with which will save the world from threats; they both are accompanied by great friends which actually are secondary characters in the story, the plot is taking plot in fantastic worlds ( Soul Society - Bleach, Konoha and such - Naruto, even though there is the Kamakura town where a part of the story will take place in Bleach). Also the story involves conflicts which threatens the wolrd in which the main character lives and must defend. There are also humorous situations which will ease the developping plots.


Both anime are epic length action adventure stories with many episodes and multiple story arcs.  Some folks don't like the "filler" episodes between story arcs as they don't advance the plot but such fluff is inevitable when dealing with any series of this length, and much of it is fun pointlessness!

If you like following the growth of a hero and his friends, and love to share their journey and adventures along the way, these anime offer plenty of fighting action, friendship development and continuous storylines to help you bond with and get to know their characters and world.


Great show, almost the same as bleach, accept different age, different storyline, but great, and if you liked bleach, you'll probably like Naruto


Great characters, great stories! Naruto's world is definitely more massive than Bleach but both are cool. If you like great action scenes, awesome techniques, deep plots and main characters with guts and extraordinary power, give these a try!


Both animes have a main character that is constantly raising their power to fight a difficult enemy just to hit a wall again and have to go back to training. They both have hand to hand combat and a large ammount of battles. 


I'll say Naruto is one of the best animes of all time however Bleaches Manga based anime story is amazing filler episodesa are the only downfall of bleach. Naruto has its moments where its not amazing but its well worth watching all the way through excluding the fillers. In any case if you like Naruto then you'll like Bleach. Just as if you like Bleach you'll like Naruto.


If you like either Bleach or Naruto you will like the other because the main characters all have very passionate personalites and once they set their mind to something they will not change it no matter what. Also once they promise something to someone they will stick to that no matter what else happens. They also share some similarites in the story line of the animes.


Both Naruto and Bleach are your typical shounen series. With heavy doses of action, A mix of comedy and teaspoon of Romance.

The Main character in both series has large amounts of sleeping power in them which they are unable to use, untill the fated meetings which change their life. Read through as how they battle the Evil forces and protect their friends and world from the impending Doom


they both have a main character who you see build from the ground up in terms of power. they both win over allys through fighting them.


Battle anime with epic fights. There are many filler though, so you can skip those if you want.


I agree with this recommendation because they are both focused on a strong male fighting to protect the ones they love. Both animes have drama, action, comedy, and great animation.

Naruto has more tear-jerking moments but, in my opinion, Bleach has more intense fights. But, both animes have a share of both and are amazing pieces. 


I first started watching bleach and I though it was going to be lame but after you get into the episode it a really good anime to watch. You will also like naruto because it is based on the main characters losing their parents and fighting to become just like them.  Hope you enjoy watching anime

Naruto Shippuuden and Bleach are perfect complementary series. When one is more serious, the other is more fun; and when the other becomes more serious, the other becomes less serious. These two fit together well because of that.


Naruto and Bleach are must-see anime. In both anime the main character has a strong urge and need to improve himself and to become the strongest to protect the people around him.


Both Bleach and Naruto have great action, exciting plots, and intriguing characters that draw you in with almost incredible ease. They easily balance drama and humour, and can go from serious one moment to hilarious the next. While there is much debate as to which is better, I say simply this: watch both! They're similar enough that if you like one you'll certainly like the other, and yet they are still very different in some ways. If you've watched one and liked it, make sure not to miss out on the other one. You may find you like it just as much or more.


Both Naruto and Bleach are about people who work together to fight bad guys. Both of the protagonists in the anime make a lot of friends throughout their stories, as well as enemies.


Both Naruto and Bleach share great fights with intriguing, genuine characters and fine animation. In addition to that, both share the same humor and provide enough episodes to ensure your addiction for a long time.


Both Naruto and Bleach have great action, great stories, and many different and interesting characters with unique personalities. You'll find your favorite character for sure! Though there are lots of action scenes, there are also great comedy scenes. You'll often wait in excitement for the next episode! By the way, both anime do contain annoying filler episodes.


I would definitely suggest these two animes. They both have amazing action sequences and intense storylines. They also both delve into demons, magic, martial arts, etc. A must see for any Shonen fan.


Naruto Shippuuden is filled with action!There are lots of fighting going on this anime. If u like Bleach, then you'll surely like this anime!


Both series has good scenario, lots of action and good soundtracks. If you like one, you‘d undoubtedly like the other.


Both characters basically start form the bottom and they both have pasts that eventually come to light, and the seris both progress they have support characters who come to join the figt on occasion and some who are always there part of their team friends and loved ones who help them out and almost trying to improve them selves to be the strongest show everyone their the best they can be, the stories basically span several years and and show how much they care fro their friends and comrades and even their rivals, mostly serious with comedic releif and some very memorable characters


Naruto Shippuden and Bleach are both about people who fight to save and protect the persons wich are importent to them and to do so they most fight lots of strong openents and get get stronger.


Both are popular ongoing anime at the moment and seem to fit well as a watching pair.

Naruto is probably more light-hearted through more of the show than Bleach, but both have entertainment in the forms of fighting, fun and more, that you can't really afford to miss either.


Both Bleach and Naruto have interesting characters, that are very important to the story. Both Ichigo and Naruto, the two protaganists rely very much on their friendships to get strength. These relationships are what make both shows extremely watchable. Both series are very action packed with great fight scenes and both Ichigo and Naruto have inner powers which they often rely on for aid in fights.


Naruto Shippuden and Bleach both contain alot of action, evil organizations , special powers, and great fighting. You may just want to watch regular Naruto first so you understand what's going on in Naruto Shippuden.


Its a very long anime same amount of fillers, both action, fighting, shounen. And both about a main character (male) geting stronger as the Anime goes, and finds out more about his past.


These 2 animes which are run by Shounen Jump are very similar in many aspects. Each contain a large cast of interesting characters, main character fights for others and continues to grow with inner evil powers, the animation is very similar and just a blast to watch both.


Just like in Bleach, Naruto Shippuden has a lot of action, comedy and slight hints of romance.

Naruto Shippuden is a bit more mature, and a lot more action happens than in Naruto!

Bleach is one of my favorites, so if you like one, you'll definitley like the other(:


If you enjoy Bleach or Naruto Shippuden, then you'd enjoy the other because both are about the fighting and abilities of characters. In both anime you become attached to the life, strife, and ultimate goals of a main character. You will watch as the main and secondary character(s) grow in abilities and strength. You will enjoy becoming attached to certain characters, and you'll find yourself yearning for more at the end of every episode.


Bleach and Naruto relate in many ways. They are both good anime. The characters have the same inner conflict as the other. The challenges the protaganist have to face have some similarities between Bleach and Naruto Shippuden.


Bleach is pretty much similar to naruto, but it focuses more on its fight scenes than naruto which is more dependent on emotion.


They are both action filled and have great lead roles which go well with each other ^^ Also both need a lot of patience to watch so you can watch them both together


Despite the difference between the Jitsu's and Bankai's, there practically asymetrical in progressive narrative.


The two animes are similar in quite a couple of ways.Both have awesome action scenes, really sad scenes that would make you cry, but also have happy and hilarious scenes as well.The main character and his comrades both strives to become strong to protect their loved ones. As they get stronger, more obstacles come in their way, but they'll definitely get through in the end! If you one or the other you'll most likely like them!!!


Because they are both shows that can inspire, two characters set to never give up and protect the ones close to them.

Fighting styles are similar yet so different.


Bleach is like naruto in a way that both main characters are progressing and are on a path to protect everyone. Both also have a great story line.


both series have common view of battle and story.

the character design in both series is wonderful


First of all, both series feature main characters with spiked hair so it would be impossible to not like the other. Secondly they both use action as a substitute for plot, so there are no confusing elements to the stories. Also both main characters have signature super moves, so that adds a massive cool factor to both shows. Ichigo uses his Jetsubo Tinjbou to drill the heavens, and Naruto uses his Raisingon to kill all grape based devil fruit within a 500 ft radius. Lastly both series go on way longer than anyone would want so even if you get bored of them, there will still be more episodes waiting for you! Never ending fun times await those who watch these shows. If you like one, you will no doubt like the other.


Excluding fillers, they both have somewhat deep storyline along with good fighting and epic characters and morals.


They are both very similar, a good side vs a bad side. Though they do have originality in them they both are mainstream and I think that anyone who like one would like the other. But of course some will say one is better than the other or that they don't like one but do the other. That is up to you.


they both are mainstream anime but still i have to say bleach/naruto have an unique way of showing how one can reach great hights only but working hard and having will


they are both action packed and keep being interesting. They both also have have comedy in them as well.


in bleach the protagonist is trying to control the zanpaktu and become more powerful, similar to naruto where naruto is trying to control the nine tail and to gain more power


Naruto Shippuden is very intersting anime sometimes the things are very mysterious and exciting they make you so impatient so anoxious while you wait fro the eppisode to air.For Bleach i'd say it the most intresting anime that ever existet Bleach was the anime able to make you laugh and few eppisodes later to make you cry Bleach was anime able to make you excited and in the same time concerned about the things that happened at the time.


Both anime are epic length action adventure stories with many episodes and multiple story arcs.  Some folks don't like the "filler" episodes between story arcs as they don't advance the plot but such fluff is inevitable when dealing with any series of this length, and much of it is fun pointlessness!

If you like following the growth of a hero and his friends, and love to share their journey and adventures along the way, these anime offer plenty of fighting action, friendship development and continuous storylines to help you bond with and get to know their characters and world.


Shippuden finds Naruto older and more powerful. Great continuation of an already awesome series. Lots of similarities between Naruto and Ichigo, except Ichigo is more reluctant as a hero. Still, both have lots of guts/spirit/heart and I can't imagine being a fan of either and not likeing the other.

Actually I resisted watching Bleach for a while but I was very happy when I finally watched. Definitely check either out...like DBZ but not so linear and with more plot development.


If you liked Bleach you would also like Naurto Shippuden because they both also have the same story line to it even though they are both about to different things.


Naruto was the show that got me hooked on anime I found out about bleach a year later and ever since they have been my best shows. The Manga is amazing and usually if you like Naruto your bound to like Bleach as well. Although the fillers in the anime usually suck in both shows they are well written and have alot of intense action battles.


I agree, because the action they is make so ahh.. And I love adventure and action Anime. So, You'll be dissapoint if you don't watch it.


Both Naruto and Bleach are your typical shounen series. With heavy doses of action, A mix of comedy and teaspoon of Romance.

Both the characters go on journey to fight the evil and protect their friends. Lots of battles, Characters And FILLERS.

Still for any shounen lover enjoyable series


Both are shounen anime with main chracters that won't give up and will always protect their friends. Both have amazing fights, great characters and unique abilities. It might be long but, it is worth the time you spent watching it.

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yusuke Urameshi was a normal middle school punk until he was hit and killed by a car, while saving a child. His selfless action earned him the right to gain his life back and serve as a detective of the spirit world, keeping the world of the living safe from a myriad of demons. But being reborn has its price: Yusuke must hatch a spirit beast that will develop according to his actions, and if he doesn't act in a good and honest manner, it will eat his soul. Can Yusuke protect the human and spirit worlds and still manage to save himself in the process?

In both Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho, the hero started off somewhat unwillingly doing the job. Both have a strong relationship between the lead character and his link to the "other world". And both take their job VERY seriously.

The worlds of Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho are pretty similar. Both worlds feature a "heaven" and "hell", and a teenage main character who can both see (and fight) spirits heard of by normal humans.

If you liked the action packed fights and the ever-increasing amount of powerful enemies in Bleach, chances are you will also like them in Yu Yu Hakusho.


Yu Yu Hakusho in a lot of ways is like Bleach. Both main characters have slight anger problems, both have to fight to keep their loved ones safe and both have to go to a different world and battle their demons.


Bleach centers around a kid who is negative towards others, but gradually gains friends he trusts and would glady give his life for. Yusuke is quite similar in that aspect. Also, they both gain some unworldly power and are able to become stronger at a rate that surpasses all others. They both fight for what they believe in and will never leave anyone behind.

The fighting is nearly the same except Bleach seems to have more thought out fighting. They both have a comedic side but get very serious during fights. They have similar plots as Yusuke begins fighting demons and Ichigo begins by fighting hollows. If you like Yu Yu Hakusho, I'm sure you would like Bleach.


Just like Bleach, Yu Yu Hakusho revolves around a teen with spiritual powers. He and some friends who have joined him along the way try to make peace in the human, spirit and demon worlds, while also stopping criminals that are doing unjust things.


Both of the main characters in Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho are teenage boys who find themselves thrown into the spirit world after committing selfless acts to save people around them. They also progress unusually fast when it comes to their skills and they become able to stand their ground against just about anyone. They story lines of both also progress fairly fast and immerse you in the story. Oh, and you can't forget the awesome action scenes in both that will hook you.


Yusuke and Ichigo are so similar; they must have grown up as neighbors. Both are rebellious (and at times, violent), and are feared by the "passerby" and admired by those who put in the effort to know them. During a near death episode, they are introduced to a supernatural world, invisible to the average citizen. For me, the starting premise for both shows was kind of boring, and they both blossomed into respectable shows once they lost the actual "ghost hunting" and got to fighting with characters of equal or greater ability.


Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho both involve a young male teenage lead that is an outcast and not understood. These characters gain spiritual powers due to a strange event, and gain new friends who better understand them.


Not only are YYH and Bleach some of the most popular fighting anime that combine action, comedy and tads of romance to lighten up things, but the buildup of the characters and flow of the story are similar as well.


Soul Collectors! This phrase suits Bleach and YYH perfectly. The main character in each series works his way towards proving that there's more to him than meets the eye; he does this through intense training and hard work. With the help of his friends at his sides, each main character can overcome almost anything!


YYH and Bleach both have great action and stories, and kickass characters. If you liked one, try out the other.


Both Series Deal With A tennager who Suddenly gains Other-worldy ablites and becoms an Agent for the After-world(Soul Society, Heaven, etc). Also Both of the main characters have a demonic side to them. Yet They both still wish to protect what is close to them. If you liked Bleach, You will also like Yu Yu Hakuso. And the other way around.


Warriors of the world of the spirits; Ichigo from Bleach and Yusuke from Yu Yu Hakusho suddenly get wrapped up in the dealings of the spirit world and must fight, given their new powers. Bot great series with likable characters and good story.


They are both about highschoolers whose lives are changed by the dead. The "other world" recruites them to help with the spirit world. If you liked one, I'm sure you'd like the other.


Hmm, what to say, Bleach is renewed YuYu, so there's many, many and even a bit more similarities in terms of plot. The main diffrence is it's age. You may say what you want but that still is around 10 years. If you enjoyed Bleach you may also like Yu Yu.


Both series have a main character that loves to fight and strives to get better with each passing battle. They also fight a variety of opponents through out the series.


Well why not recommend. Bleach does seem to borrow a bit from Yu Yu Hakusho, They're both alright comedy wise and both share some good similarities storywise. The main characters both seem to share some things in common too, might I add. If you're into either and find yourself bored one day, why not give the other a go?


Because I like the show and they are sort of similar, in a way. They both have to do with spirits, the undead and such.


Yu Yu Hakusho and Bleach are stunningly similar. Yu Yu Hakusho is the classic shonen, and Bleach is almost a modernized, high-adrenaline version of YYH.

Both male leads are bullheaded and more or less social outcasts, but end up being saddled with responsibilities they never wanted.  However, their determined additudes make them extremely good at what they do and they both end up taking their jobs very seriously.

As each series progresses, the character find the need to increase their strength to protect the people they care about and fight the forces of evil.  Using their iron wills, the continue to struggle forawrd no matter the seeminly impossible obstacles that await them. They both have to deal with the responsibility that comes from weilding strong powers once they do attain them.

A good supporting cast also surrounds each major character in both series, providing motivation, friendship, and a slew of interesting powers.  Both series also have highly detailed Heaven "organizations" that the main characters end up working for.

I'd go on, but there is little point.  YYH does show its age, but if you are a big fan of Bleach you should go and watch the old classic and learn your roots.  If you enjoyed YYH, then Bleach will blow you away.


Both anime have a main male character who start off as a normal high school/junior high student when something happens to make them become more physically and "magically" inclined. They learn about powers they possess and are both forced to fight monsters. Plenty of action, plenty of comedy to lessen the seriousness, and plenty of paranormal characters are introduced to add to the anime and the awesome fighting scenes. Bleach is ALOT longer than Yu Yu Hakusho, and I would say better drawn, but are action packed comedies worth watching.


in both animes the main characters learn of a whole different world separate but part of the world they are used to.  When they learn of these worlds they are pulled into the world of supernaturalism and are employed by the superiors of the worlds.  The characters are thus pulled into the disputes and fights of thee worlds all the while fighting for their lives because of the reputation they've achieved through their jobs.


Both of these anime deal with teenagers who come into having "special powers" and decide to use them to protect those closest to him. Both have alot of fighting and "powering up" (getting stronger as the storyline progresses). Later on in both stories you find out hidden family secrets that also tie into the story.


Both involve the spirit world and fighting.  They also both show how the characters develop and gain power.  Both of the shows also have a good deal of fighting in them.


If you were enthralled by the supernatural effect in Bleach you might like Yu Yu Hakusho with it's mass amounts of demons and such.


Both series are supernatural combat thrillers, featuring sonen protagonists both facing the natural challenges of growing up and the supernatural challenge of invasion from another world.


Besides from Yu Yu Hakusho having way more things then bleach like how Yu Yu Hakusho has a story. They follow your typical boring shonen plot line.


This is a bit of a hit or miss I could say but I believe this was an amazing show. Most people I know that watched bleach loved Yu Yu Hakusho. The Only bad part of the show was Kuwabara a bit of a stupid idiot I'd have to say that doesnt belong in the show however if you can get past him you should love this show.


Both Yu Yu Hakusho and Bleach share common traits both are Shounen and Action based animes, the two main characters Yusuke Urameshi and Ichigo Kurosaki are both considered to be delinquents but deep down they have a strong sense of justice. Both shows have alternate worlds and characters that have a strong sense of the supernatural, both have spiritual powers (Reiatsu). Both animes they save the world from the depths of the evil and corrupt, and are joined by great friends.

Soul Eater

Soul Eater

In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!

Both series revolve around Shinigami trying to restore peace by ridding the world of evil souls. Both of these anime contain lots of interesting characters, tons of good humor and some incredible fight sequences.


Soul Eater and Bleach share many of the same motifs, for instance, both tell the tale of the protagonist weilding a huge weapon that is a living spirit. Both protagonists also fight for justice while slaying "evil" souls and protecting the innocent. Finally, Bleach and Soul Eater each have a good mix of Action and Drama while keeping a flare for comedy. If you like one, you will like the other.


both anime revolve around the death and after life of humans both are a serious anime but have funny aspects in them which come from secondary character eg kon and black star both stroys revolve around a main character who goes and destroys bad souls useing wepons that have souls


Both shows revolve around the shinigami concept, even though the approach is a bit different.

Nonetheless, they both share a good amount of humour and fight scenes, tied up with a good animation style and decent character development.


There's the fact that they are both shounen, they are both mainly for men, with lots of awesome fights, perverted scenes, love scenes, funny scenes and a great feeling of great friendship beetween the characters.

If you add to that that they are both about shinigamis(death gods) who kill dark and evil beings and save human and pure beings, the similarity grows up more. And add to that the weapons they use that can transform into bigger ones, and their power grow up through the series, and in soul eater the weapons are being that talk and feel and in bleach some of them are also beings, living beings, so the feeling of fighting togueter the user and the weapon is also a similarity beetween the two animes. You will surely like one if you liked the other


Both series are about teenagers with amazing abilities, their main goal to protect people from "corrupted souls" bent on eating human souls. In Bleach soul reapers fight hollows and in Soul Eater meisters fight kishin. In Bleach soul reapers use a zanpakut? and meisters use humans who can change into weapons. In both series the wielder has (well should have) a relationship with his/her weapon. Both series are action packed and funny. The characters also have similar personalities. If you like one you will most likely enjoy the other.


Both Anime's main caracters wield a huge weapon. And both weapons have a soul witch the wielder has to sync with to get more powerfull. The combination between storyline and action is great, if you like one, you surely like the other. Must see's!


If you like the comedy as well as the action in bleach then you would like soul eater. The both have similar terms and ideas but soul eater is a little more geared towards the comedy aspect. If you can deal with that give Soul Eater a try.


Its a great story and its the same feeling when watching the anime. its the unike wepons fights and the characters personalites thats makes the anime better then the rest.

If you like more fights with unusual weapons and unusual opponents i think you what to look at this anime.

Oh, look:

  • Shinigamis
  • Action
  • Comedy
  • Shounen

What does that mean? Well, if you look at it closely it means that both Bleach and Soul Eater are so similar!

These shounen shows have the great action, the best comedy, and cool shinigamis.

Soul Eater tends to be a bit more crazier in what it does. Especially when you look at Death the Kid's perfectionist personality.

Though Bleach is more serious than Soul Eater is, they both are really good shows that are worth watching.


The reason why you should watch Bleach if you are watching Soul Eater is because there is a common trait in both.  Instead of just showing the good guys always triumphing and the bad guys are blown away, the anime that I have seen a relation to do the exact opposite.  Both anime give the stories of the bad guys as well, and show why the bad guys are motivated to do the 'bad' things that they do.  These anime are not just some bonehead anime that show no flow, ya know?


Easily works both ways. Soul Eater and Bleach both revolve around warriors using weopons, with personalities, to battle evil spirits. There are obviously differences in plot and whatnot, but fans of shounen and action should check out both. 


Both anime do share some common points, and the fans of Bleach probably would like Soul Eater a lot and vice-versa. However, Soul Eater approaches from a new drawing style. The point isn't to make the envirnment look realalistic, but more humoristic. But the story can be as rough, exciting and can contain kick-ass swordfights as with Bleach. 

Anyway, if you like shinigami, oversized and overpowered blades and a healthy portion of humor, both Soul Eater and Bleach are something for you :o)


You'd like both because they are about these shinigami (good guys) who battle demons and witches (bad guys) with a lot of comedy along the way, Although id say bleach has more serious characters than soul eater it makes up with action and soul eater is funny from ep 1! (dont let the cover picture diswade you)


Soul Eater and Bleach are two shounen series that managed to find a great balance between awesome action, "deeper" themes (for as deep as fantasy shounen gets) and wacky comedy. Both shows involve the same sort of master / weapon understanding, are partly about protecting what's precious and, yes, even have shinigami. If you enjoyed one of these shounen-flicks, make sure to check out the other.


Soul Eater feels a lot more campy and Tim Burton-esque than Bleach, but both have a similar feel and flow regardless. Boys with supernatural powers fight baddies, and both series have a good blend of action and comedy. Like one? Give the other a try.


If you on episode (insert three digit number here) and you are looking for something a little different, Soul Eater is the best transition for you.

Very similar in plot, Soul Eater creates an entire new world that you delve into episode one. As with Bleach, many of the fight scenes in Soul Eater are very interesting with abilities not seen in everyday anime, which is a hard thing to do as time goes on. On another note, something I found in Soul Eater I found lacking in Bleach is a "power scale." Characters grow stronger over time no doubt, but there are definite gaps between strengths and this series never forgets it.

I like the main characters far more in Soul Eater as each sports a unique background. In addition, call me a sucker, but I love loyalty and friendship which is in abundance in Soul Eater. The bond between Technicians and Weapons is special


Both are about Restoring Peace somewhere by killing strange creatures, and both have very awesome battle scenes.


Both animes talk about shingami(or shinigamis), or in english, death god/soul reapers, and both have the touch of humor in them, as well as action, along with great plot not to mention drawing style, and most importantly both are great!


Both anime are framed in the same direction, the main characters fighting for justice against the forces of evil. These two stories are for those who like shinigami to fight for the sake of innocent people against evil souls. In addition to action, is including a clime divine drama


Both Soul Eater and Bleach feature young individuals with supernatural powers who fight these evil beings that prey on the innocent individuals.  With a decent blend of comedy and action both are sure to offer up quite a bit of entertainment.


These anime are both action/comedy anime, however Bleach is more serious, whilst Soul Eater, especially at the start, takes on the funnier side of things.

They both involve characters that control weapons, which are actually living beings. Although in Soul Eater they take on their human form more often, in Bleach they maintain their weapon form most of the time. These weapons also have special powers such as "Witch Hunter" in Soul Eater or something like "Bankai" in Bleach.


Both Bleach and Soul Eater have enough huge similarities for one to like the other but not enough to be clones of each other. Both have a similar aim of destroying demon like creatures and having weapons that are more companions then they are tools. Both have awesome concepts and great fight scenes :)


Bleach is very similar to Soul Eater, in part that they slay demons and i also think that even thought Bleach is still ongoing, is very similar to Soule Eater in many ways...


Both series have a sort of magical, mystical quality to it. In that both worlds have a sort of magic that many can harness for good or evil. Soul Eater has witches, demonish foes, and the ultimate Kishin, while Bleach's Ichigo has to deal with Hollows and the Arrancar. Both animes center around lots of showdowns and fights and a never-give-up spirit that helps the heroes when it seems that they're down for the count. Recommended just for that.


Soul Eater and Bleach, both have:

- a focus on shounen, action, fighting,

- shinigami's

- an organization that fights agasisnt evil spirits;

- different "races" with different agendas.


Bleach and Soul Eater both Shinigami themed, there both are turly funny and full of great characters!

Buff men with huge swords in bloody fights with hideous monsters. What's not to like? If you like action as well as otherworldly mischief, both Inuyasha and Bleach are series you should try. Both contain great storyline, character development, and awesome battles! They both have a nice mixture of comedy and seriousness also, though Bleach leans more towards the serious side and Inuyasha has the sillier moments.
Guy with a huge sword battles monsters, if you like these fights than both animes are yours to see. Bleach is deeper and more serious, while Inuyasha tends to be more comedy at times though.
Both of these series start out with a strong plot and idea...however they quickly start to get into a perpetual cycle of going absolutely nowhere. While IY is no longer running (I can't say that it had an 'end') Bleach is going and going with no end in sight. If you like animes about groups of people tossed together (especially in an 'alternate world'), fighting to get something or someone back, with 100+ episodes to watch, you'll probably like both of these. However I prefer IY to Bleach, because I found it to generally have more likable characters and much higher production values.

Bleach and Inuyasha's stories are worlds apart. One is about a teenage boy who becomes a Shinigami, and the other is about a teenaged girl who gets sent back to the feudal era. I just think if you liked Bleach you would like Inuyasha because they both have the same element of suspense and adventure.


The first thing that InuYasha and Bleach have in common are their main characters who are young, very strong, carry around big ass swords and constantly find themselves in fights . Now if this wasn't enough for you there are other similarities like how the main characters in both series start out as loners but start to gain more friends that help support them in their journeys. They both are long series and for me that's almost always a plus in a good series. So if you enjoyed one of the series you should definitely check out the other.


These anime series are actually quite similar and yet very different. Both of the main characters have large swords; a mix of action, comedy, and drama; and mostly involve sword battles, but sometimes involve spells and ranged battle weapons such as bows and arrows. Inuyasha is based in the past (as it is set in the feudal era) while Bleach is based in the present (I think the setting is self-explanatory). Either way, I am quite sure that if you enjoyed Bleach, you will enjoy Inuyasha.


Both of the shows have a main character that is a male. In the beginning of the shows they don't like what they have to do, Inuyasha has to go after jewel shards, Ichigo has to slay Hollows. Into the show they change their ways and become close friends to people they would have never been friends to. Both animes have a story line of the main character, and company, trying to stop something, and when they do something else comes up as a detour for them. If you like one of them there you will probably like the other one.


If you compete the two you can find characters that are quite alike, and somtimes you just wait for someone form Bleach to just pop up Inuyasha or the other way around.


InuYasha and Bleach both tell the tale of the hero saving / being saved by a girl and then the duo embarking on a journey together while making many new friends and allies along the way. In both Bleach and Inuyasha a main evil character is unveiled deep into the series (Bleach: Aizen Sousuke, InuYasha: Naraku) and the rest of the series involves the protagonist trying to kill the main evil character and in the process discovering new abilities and levels of power that they posess. If you like one, you will love the other.


Iflong series are your thing - these one is also for you. Supernatural plot, many not senseless fightis with deamons, friendship, humour and interesting characters are things that you will also may enjoy in both of these anime.


The main characters of these two series have very simiar personalities and the overall mood is almost identical. The plots between the two are also very similar.


Because Bleach contains plenty of swordplay, you will definitely enjoy InuYasha. This anime combines love, romance, and, of course, swordplay into one anime. InuYasha and Ichigo both have the same characteristics: getting mad easily, sense of "true justice", etc. It is a brilliant piece of work and definitly worth your time.


in bleach as in inuyasha the main charecter is cocky and arogent they both wield a sword suprisingly well since niether has had any experience ichigo from bleach used to kick people while inuyasha scrached them the difference is inuyasha is a half demon and ichigo kills his equivolent to demons


They both contain sword fights between demons, monsters and people, and also the way they become stronger by the minuete...


If you liked inuyasha/bleach you will like this because well both animes are about a generally normal person that goes to an "alternate" world. Both have a guy with a big sword that kill monsters. Both these animes are long running and you are left generally left watching the story not progress at all for long periods.but if u like long running animes about monsters, swords and fighting to get something or someone back. then these animes are for you. 


Inuyasha is another "samurai-type" anime, I guess you would call it. You know, guys dressed up in robes, REALLY cool hair, and giant swords.


Both anime have a similar fighting style. Where two characters have to face an unknown world to them, and fight monsters with huge swords. For those who like a good samurai style, these are two animes that you must see.


I just think they are kind of similar. When you think about it you have a strong main character and he weilds a SWORD and he and the sword get stronger together. They both have some screwed up backgrounds. They also battle weak enemies and strong enemies. It's REALLYYY great. Don't knock it until you try it.


Both of these series are about the adventures of two young people that are pulled into worlds that are beyond their wildest imaginations. Both worlds live in the feudal era and demonic forces plague the villagers. Magical swords, shounen-one-liners, and epic battles abound in both series. And both series have an antagonist that enjoys a good costume party. If you like one, you'll probably like the other. 


Inuyasha = Ichigo

Kagome = Orihime

Miroku = Uryu

Sango = Rukia

Similar characters, no denying that.


well, theyre not that similar, but i still recommend the; one takes place in the past and present while the other is in present and different worlds. But they both have a main male fighting character and at least 1 female character.


the two titles have good sword fightings. Also the two main characters are always improving their power to protect the people that are important to them, although InuYasha does not admit it at first.


Both of them have similar begginings. There´s a main villan right from the first season and doesnt fight for the next seasons of serie, but they get new allies (Bleach- Arrankars, Inuyasha- Shishinintai)And in both, the main character has a female sidekick.

If iI missed some information of the anime, because I havent seen the whole epsiodes of both of them, PM me.
