Following a violent incident in his childhood, Alma Tandoji has been left an outcast at school and wants nothing more than to be quietly left alone. But one day Alma's solitary peace is shattered when a strange monster known as a Dark Stone attacks his hometown. Suddenly the boy finds himself thrust into the struggle between this strange creature and the ones fighting it: the Aiba Foundation and it's leader, the wealthy Ruri. Though reluctant to fight at first, amidst the battle, Alma learns that he possesses a power known as Sacred Seven that is linked to not only these mysterious creatures but also his forgotten past. Now, along with the help of Ruri and her bestpectacled butler Makoto, Alma must take up the mantle of protector to save the world from this new threat.
Bleach and Sacred Seven are quite similar in character dynamics and storyline. Both include a supernatural power, monsters bent on consuming the protagonists, and a mixture of school and fighting.
The male lead is a powerful young man who is aided by a woman who releases his power (Ruri's crystals or Rukia's glove). There is also a slight rivalry between the male lead and a supporting male character (Ishida or Kagami).
It isn't unusual for a person to feel that the world around them is strange and has unexpected secrets lying just beyond their sight. However, for most people this is just an occasional sensation that greets them upon awakening or chases them into sleep. For the mushi researcher Ginko, it isn't a feeling at all; it is a knowledge which guides his travels and motivates his life. Found in the cracks between what is conceivable and what is not, are the varied life forms collectively known as mushi. They surround us and affect us, but their intensely different nature makes them unrecognizable to most. Ginko brings these life forms into perspective for the lives of those most affected and most in need of an explanation.
If you liked Bleach or Mushi-Shi, you'll possibly like the other because of the human involvement with what would be known as "The Other World." I know I like both of them because of that. But, there's also the various views on what The Other World would be like, and that makes it interesting to compare how similar/different they are with each other. Both have some pretty awesome characters, too, and their storylines are almost always riddled with hidden plot points and twists in the plot.
Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?
Akari has always known two things: she’s a skilled fortune teller, and she has an uncanny knack for growing huge, healthy plants. But after experiencing a traumatic tragedy the girl soon discovers the true horror of the world: there exist evil spirits known as Daemonia that infect people’s hearts and grant their hosts wishes in exchange for a contract. After the wish is fulfilled, the human is turned into a murderous monster, and only Sephiro Fiore, a group of girls who wield the powers of the Elemental Tarot, can put a stop to them. As the bearer of the Sun card, Akari must join Sephiro Fiore and help take down those possessed by Daemonia, no matter the cost.
If you like watching people transform and use spritual weapons to kill "undead" monsters, both of these are quite similar (at least for the first little while of Bleach). When killing Hollows is still a major part in Bleach it's exactly the same situation as the Daemonia in DBI. A person is turned into said monster and can never be returned to normal, both series' having the issues of having to kill people they love after being turned into their respective monster.
