Busou Renkin

Busou Renkin

Some things in life are so bad that you'd like to pretend they're just a dream. Unfortunately for Kazuki, trying to save a strange girl from being brutally killed by monsters (and ending up dying instead) is an unfortunate reality. Out of pity, the girl replaces Kazuki's heart with an alchemy-based artifact known as Kakugane, so that he may live on. With this strange device, Kazuki gains the power of Busou Renkin -- Arms Alchemy; a power that will come in handy when monsters (and worse) begin to plague his town! Kazuki soon meets the girl from his “dream” (named Tokiko) in reality, and she tells Kazuki to get on with his life; but with his sister and friends in danger, that might not be possible. Besides, if Kazuki gives up the chance to show off just how manly he can be, how can he hope to win the heart of the alluring older-sister-like Tokiko?!

Busou Renkin and Bleach have a great deal in common. The primary premise of both series is that a young man can do a great deal if he has enough determination and pain tolerance. In both series, the inexperienced but honorable boy comes upon what he perceives as a vulnerable girl in serious danger. In a somewhat ill advised attempt to save the girl, he ends up endangering himself and gaining unexpected powers. Each boy finds himself struggling to improve himself both mentally and physically; so, he can fulfill his roll as protector and defender. These are two action series which feature major combat and internal struggle with random bits of humor thrown in.

daflameking

Both main characters, Ichigo and Mutou, have the same willpower and both get dark special powers; Hollows in Bleach and Dark Kakugane in Busou Renkin.

vick01

Both Busou Renkin and Bleach are very similar in that the story focuses around the main character being saved by a mysterious female. Both characters end up becoming powerful from the encounters with the mysterious female and continue to fight alongside her and the others they meet. If you liked one then you will enjoy watching the other.

azntenniskid

Bleach is almost the same type of anime as Busou Renkin. Busou Renkin is a bit darker than Bleach, but it has the same amount of fighting and (perhaps more) comedy. In both anime people fight with special powers, but in Bleach they use swords and in Busou Renkin they don't. Although, one of the main characters in Busou Renkin fights with some sort of swords attached to her armor (it's a bit hard to explain, it looks really cool though =P).

ImportantIrrelevance

Both Bleach and Busou Renkin have a very colorful universe, which makes them a joy to watch. They both focus on a male high schooler and an older girl who shows him the ropes of fighting, and fills him in on the way that the world works (at least for a little while). They both have a very flashy fighting style, and they both start with B. If you like one, I have very little doubt that you wouldn't enjoy the other.

GrimReaper

The plot and the main characters are quite alike, they are both have serious and funny parts. But this anime i about alchemy (two forms of alchemy to be exact, arms alchemy and homunculus)

karcik

Both are about young boys, who are accidentaly put into a weird fight, after which they obtain a mysterious power. Also, if you liked the variety of characters with different powers in one, you'll find it in the other too.

katia84

Teenage boy tries to save girl, it doesnt work so well so girl gives him super powers! Boy wants to get stronger so he can save girl, protect all his friends and maybe save the world too ! Add a little comedy and some cool swordfights to the mix and you got two very nice shounen with alot in common.

If you like the the first you will probably like the other.

TotallyLovable

Even if takes your life, you will never give up, you will never back down, you will never let down the ones who believe in you. You will keep going forward! You will fight for the world, for your friends and even for those you haven't met and probably never would. You belive that's the right thing to do and it really is!

Both Busou Renkin and Bleach are created on that same theme. The main characters - Mutou Kazuki and Kurosaki Ichigo, are first thinking about others and then about themselves. But is it an advantage to be so selfless, to care more about the world that about yourself? Who knows? But if you, too, think that the world we live in is worth saving, you must watch these two animes!

jurexplay

Wow this one is easy. Both series have main characters scouted by badass chicks giving them the power. They even have similiar cool-looking weapons ( swords ). They are both fast learners with bad first impression but kind hearts. Bleach and BR are a good shounen anime well worth your time.

battousai22

Both Busou Renkin and Bleach have male characters that are in a serious crisis and are saved by female warriors, both have similar weapons and the sumoning is nearly the same. If you enjoyed one of these great series, I guarantee that you would like the other one too.

KiraRin

I'm going with the masses and adding the obvious recommendation for these series as they are both so similar. From a similar plot line of a secret society trying to save the earth from the unknown monsters, schoolgirl and guy heroes, special powers to a female side character with very large breasts.

Both are pretty mindless and don't take much thought, occasionally delivering laughs. Regular fight scenes that take more time than is absolutely necessary.

These are certainly not the best shows I've seen, but fill some time when there's lack of anything else better on...

XanderCage

Yet another story about a boy whose life, as well as the lives off all his loved ones, are in danger. Mysterious creatures that bare little to no resemblance to anything they've ever encountered before, have begun to attack their home towns, leaving piles of bodies and taking countless lives. Both protagonists have learned the secrets that had long been hidden from the normal populous, and with the help of two very unique girls, they've obtained the power required to abolish the threats and save their town from extinction. However, what they still do not know is that there is more to it than meets the eye. Can the two live up to their new responsibilities, and accept the fact that they may have to leave behind the very people that they swore to protect in order to fight a greater evil?

stingreis

Both of these anime's have a strong female supporting character that introduces and works closely with the male character who aquired his powers from the female character. Both anime's involve supernatural powers and defeat things that should not dwell on the planet earth.

As a reccomendation, I believe anyone who has watched either of these anime's and enjoyed it, would definitely enjoy the other

MalteseFalcon

Bleach and Busou Renkin are uncannily similar in several ways. From the animation, the beginning storylines, the characters, the groups and the weapons, you could probably take some of the characters from one, plop them in the middle of the second, and things would work out.

Character-wise, Kazuki and Ichigo are very similar in motivation, temperament, combat styles and eventually story. Tokiko and Rukia are also very much alike, for similar reasons.

Busou Renkin has a storyline that hits the ground running, with very minimal asides and filler. If you liked Bleach, but want something a little more fast paced, check it out.

Alternately, if you liked Busou Renkin and want a little more, check out the early seasons of Bleach.

annedesiecle

Very similar plot lines, though Bleach is a little more complex. Both plots host a strong female lead who discovers the male lead and helps him realize his power. Both plots offer heros an extra set of fighting powers. Very similar animes, both very enjoyable.

Cut3PupGrL

Busou Renkin is like a shorter version of Bleach.  They both have weapons that suit their way of fighting. Also Kuzuki and Ichigo both meet a strange young girl who give them new power that'll help save the world.  Both of the guys are also incredible strong and manage to win in the end. They also fight to protect they're loved one.

scizorg45

Hmm, where to start, maybe it's shorter if I just point out the things they do not  share. Which is primeraly is their number of episodes. 

Basicly it's about a normal guy, guy gets superpower, guy fights to save the things he loves. Bleach just takes more time for it all.  

Thrawn

When I was watching Busou Renkin, I kept thinking of Bleach. Even with the usual spiky hair and oversized weapons, it's hard to not think of the other when watching either one of them:

Fight scenes a plenty against monstrous foes, the protagonist gaining strength through rigorous training, the cool trainer-esque female character who guides them (Tokiko for Busou Renkin and Rukia for Bleach) and the reason the heroes fight.

Busou Renkin actually ends and moves at a quick pace, while Bleach is still ongoing and moves at it's own pace (depending on the arc). No matter which one you watched, you're bound to enjoy the other as they both feature the same stuff that makes them good in their genre.

sm3xyang3l

Both animes tell about a boy who was suddenly dragged into a HUGE mess due to a series of unfortunate events. The two protagonists gain power from a girl and start fighting along side with them. The two main guys strives to protect the girl and the rest of their loved ones. The action and excitement is just GREAT! If you liked Busou Renkin/Bleach, then DEFINITELY watch the otherr!!!

D.Gray-man

D.Gray-man

An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.

If Bleach is described as Soul Reapers destroying Hollows, then D Gray Man is described as Exorcists destroying Akumas. The difference is that D Gray Man is Catholic/Western, and Bleach is Oriental/Eastern.

abbyz44

If you liked Bleach, you'd like D.Gray-man because the fight scenes are great and it has the same feel as Bleach. Allen Walker, like Ichigo, is a very special exorcist and stands out above others.

neutrino

Both main characters fight for the people they know and love and don't give up, even when all limits to their abilities have been exceeded. They are accepting of everyone else and are very sensitive. In addition, there are a lot of crazy and wacky side characters who lighten up the mood of otherwise dark stories.

Ragnarokin

Bleach is an excellent action adventure anime, and the same can be said for D. Gray Man. Both titles have strong charismatic males as their lead. Both are leads you want to support and fall in love with. Female or male audiences that enjoy Bleach would also love this lead character as well as intense battles and intricate plot line.

raziyll

Both of these action packed animes focus on destroying creatures demonic in nature. Soul Reapers/Shinigami (Bleach) and Exorcists (D.Gray Man) are both societies created for the soul purpose of "exorcising" the evil of the world.

macguy

D.Gray and Bleach are both great series for action + storyplot. Allen Walker, for example, is similar to Ichigo in his path to discover what he is defending and how his power works. Both go on this enduring journey to discover themselves while protecting those that they hold dear. Epic battles are another reason why this should be watched... If you enjoy seeing moments where there is a return of a character or a new power has been acquired, then you will definitely want to watch D.Gray Man. Think Byakuya vs Ichigo and you'll understand how exciting it is.

charliechan

Both are about a guy who gains a mystic power, they team up with other with skills to help reach their goals. Both animes ar action packed with parts of comedy too.

Levko

I both anime main characters are fighting with evil spirits!In bleach its hollows in d.gray its akuma!In bleach hollows are killed by shinigami in d.gray akuma are killed by Exorcists!in bleach weapons are Zanpakut? in d.gray man their weapon are Innocence!Both weapons are getting stronger with their owners!

kajara

The main characters Allen and Ichigo is very similar. Both fights akuma. theirs weapon is very alike. And everybodys problem lies on therse shoulders. It's a real adventy to watch, you will surely like it.

rdh
The series is about ghosts and to save innocent people from danger. both Heros in the animes has unique weapons to fight against evil with.
foureyedalice

Both Ichigo (Bleach) and Allen Walker (D.Gray-Man) are  gifted and/or cursed by their ability to see spirits.  Their unusually high power reserves and obligation to help the souls they see lead both characters to join the ranks of (or associate w/) special, if somewhat dark and mysterious, organizations intent on saving souls-turned-monsters (hollows, akuma).  Large casts and fighting abound as we follow the hero and his associates/friends on various missions/adventures to save the living and dead.

diabloNL11

D.Gray-man is in a way the same as Bleach in Bleach the weapons are have types.in D.Gray-man they use innocence as a weapon and those weapons have to types and in both anime's you can connect in a way with your weapon and they both have a order where they fight fore, what i am trying to say that you would like D.Gray-man to if you like Bleach or vice versa

MalteseFalcon

There are undeniable similarities between D.Gray-man and Bleach. First, there is the animation, very similar in styles. Second are the characters. Members of a supernatural organization who's mission is to defeat demons/spirits that prey upon humans? Check. Characters have their own unique abilities? Check. Characters showing off new abilities/growing stronger as the enemies get tougher? Also check. Main characters with the drive to protect everyone? Again, also there.

Basically, if you like long arc-ing storylines with figting and any of the above, and also liked either Bleach or D.Gray-man, I can pretty much guarantee you will like the other.

DeaThCrowS

If you like Bleach you will like D.Gray Man too, because just like Bleach its a Demon Fighting style of anime, its funny in some parts and the story is just awesome *.*

thegreatmajeni

These Animes both are trying to restore peace in a place. Though in Bleach they kill Hollows, in D.Gray-Man they Kill Akuma. Action Scenes are also the same, but Bleach uses Swords, and D.Gray-Man uses wierd Weapons.

Chelsae

Okay. I'll start off by saying that both of these animé have very similar battle scenes, for me anyway. Whenever I was watching one of them, it instantly reminded me of a scene in the other.

Also, the storyline, although both are full of fillers, is quite similar. Whilst watching D.Gray-Man, I found myself comparing the Akuma in it, to the hollows in Bleach, and the ceros from the Arrancar.

Both are great action animé that everyone should watch.

fat10

Both anime trim on the fight against evil spirits. While Bleach is about shinigami and D.Gray-Man on exorcists, the mixture of history with magnificent characters is enough to love both animes. Both have my fighting spirit.

Blaopink

Both Allen and Ichigo have absolutely no capacity  to understand their own limits, this leads them both to the precipice of death many times only to rise up with a new found power and blast all their enemies from the sky whether it's hollow or akuma.

Also the Arc and it's hostile inhabitants reminded me alot of the dome used to house the Espada in Bleach.

chad28

D.Gray-Man and Bleach, both have:

- a focus on shounen, action, fighting,

- an organization that fights agasisnt evil spirits.

Anudevil13

Both D.Gray-man and Bleach are primarily action based anime with lots of good fights. Both series feaure main characters who fight for justice and protection from the Evil forces, many Similar concepts aswell like

Akuma= Hollows

Innocence=Zanpakto

Shinigami=Excorcists

Also the Ending of both anime is pretty similar, which leaves u in anticipation and anxiouness

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

Superpower fighting - check. A larger-than-life story that slowly unfolds - check. Well made characters - check. Some exciting drama - check. ...with a dash of comedy - check. In the end this recommendation was quite a no-brainer...
yuujin

Although the time and place of Bleach and FMA are different, the tension remains somehow similar. Both parties fight to survive and in both series there are plenty of jokes, even in difficult situations. There are more tragic episodes in FMA, but maybe if Bleach would have only 26 episodes it would seem quite sad too.

azntenniskid

Bleach and FMA both have a lot of action. Bleach has a bit more comedy but I still think they'll give you the same feeling. Also, Fullmetal Alchemist is a bit darker, but they both have sad and funny moments. =P

icejamez

Both FMA and Bleach are shounen anime and are very popular. They are filled with an interesting plot, unique characters, and a good mix of action, comedy, and plot. If you liked one of them, and are looking for something new to watch, check out the other one.

Ragnarokin

Fullmetal Alchemist is an anime about two brothers on a journey toward redemption that leads to so much more. This is an intricate action adventure anime on par with Bleach. If you like one's plot and narrative and action, then the other is the anime for you.

rinnei

Both Fullmetal Alchemist and Bleach are great anime to watch if you love watching out-of this-world kind of anime. The fighting styles might differ in both anime but they are still cool, unique, and entertaining. Each anime is also funny and not too serious to watch.

Rizu

Bleach and FullMetal Alchemist are both action-packed shounen featuring a spunky male lead who combats evil and in general plays the hero, in one form of the other, all the while sporting a fairly combative (and emotionally defensive) attitude. While they put up a tough front, both have a sensitive side, and are very caring and willing to defend the weak-- fight for justice.

Bleach is more well-defined as the typical good vs. evil cliche, while FMA has a good deal more gray areas, and often exhibits the darker side of humanity in a more effective way. Still, both have many light moments and character distortion/chibification, resulting in a pleasant mix of serious moments, combat, and hilarity (and oft-times actually witty humor, as well). I'd definately recommend viewers of one to try the other.

Meepers

Both of the animes' character's are unforgettable, their stories are very funny and yet still action-packed. not to mention the character's try their hardest to keep moving forward, even if there's a giant boulder in their way.

Nightmare7

Well.. Both have a lot of characters to develop, though FMA takes the focus on fewer characters than Bleach, but both are as action packed as you\\\\\\\'ll love if you watch one of them. The story is a lot more imersive in FMA, but Bleach takes a lot more focus into fight after all, but never forgets about the characters and everything that leads to all the fighting, and that\\\\\\\'s what makes it much more like FMA. And that\\\\\\\'s it.

charliechan

Both are about a guy who gains a mystic power, they team up with other with skills to help reach their goals. Both animes ar action packed with parts of comedy too.

Chaoswitch

Protecting of friends and other loved ones after a tragic loss of another. These two shows fit well within one another. Alot of fighting is involved and some hurtful losses. And hints of romance.

fizrox

How far will you go for those closest to you? These two series give you the answer, as well as lots of great fun and enjoyment while following these stories full of heart moving emotions, good-evil battles, unexpected changes of action and humorous situations.

Howlingwar

Not that fma has around the same storyline as bleach. But one simalarinty isthat something they were born into(ed has alchemy and ichigo could see spirits) has set themon a journey to help someone or get something back.

LLORAtheLLAMA

Both of these animes come with action and comedy.

Besides a well-balanced action/comedy story, the main characters have a sense of strong determination to do what they believe is right. Though it sometimes gets them in a giant mess.

The main guys are not alone, of course. They have people that support and love them which drives them both farther to achieve their goal.

Vejhed

Action, drama, comedy, angst, supernatural elements, bad guys that just won't go away... Yup, all here! FMA and Bleach have many, many similarities.

The plots in each are larger than one would give them credit for in the beginning. As the plots slowly unfold the viewer finds themselves with many 'wow' moments. The battles are intense and manage to hold the viewers' attention.

I also find the main characters to be somewhat alike in the fact that they each strive to do what they belive is right and beat themselves up when things go wrong. They fight for their friends and family above all else. To me, each of the main characters has a bit of a superhero personality in that they believe they can save everyone and will try. When they set their mind to something there's no way to stop them.

Definitely, if you like one you'll like the other.

SaruChan

Both animes take place in an alternate universe, shaking things up a bit for the audience. Though Alchemy and Soul Reaper abilities are very different, they have that same element of fantasy that gives those watching ideas to create something for themselves. Both ALSO have implied romance; I say implied because it's never made clear through the duration of either of the series as to who has feelings for who when it comes to the romance between main characters. Again, it gives the audience a chance to let their minds wander and decide for themselves. :D

hamletsmage

Both of these anime revolve around a powerful, young protagonist that has grand-scale adventures with a group of individuals with extraordinary abilities. Each anime has its own scientific principles that differ from reality. There is also a combination of comedy, action, and teen angst in both anime.

Anudevil13

Fullmetal Alchemist and Bleach have many concepts in common.

Both series offer main character which are insanely powerful, and have their Beloved Mother dead,which brings major changes to their life and personality.

There is lot of action in both series with Fights closer to fantasy.

Both have abundant Villanious characters , who must harm main char and their friends and in the end Eradicated from face of earth.

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.

daniel44044

Kenshin and Bleach are must-see anime. In both anime there are some extreme sword fights, and the main characters don't really like to fight but will do so to protect the people around them.

renjiofthundr

Both Bleach and Kenshin are action-packed and have characters who are filled with love, until evil strikes. If you are thrilled by these things then I guarantee you'd like these.  

Shuklyah

What I am liking about this show is that even though it is different in it's own way, it lends it's way to be goofy sometimes just like in Rurouni Kenshin (the series). It's pretty cool! A.

holyzac

If you Loveeeeeee flashy sword fights and long spectacular battles, both animes Rurouni Kenshin and Bleach are for you! If you watched either one and cant get enough you can always watch the other one. Both are unique animes which specialises in their awesome swordplays. To top that up, their plot also makes it intresting to follow together with the amazing battles sending chills to the spine.

perdendosi

Both of the series includes swordsskills and how much the characters are evolving. And the maincharacters from both series evolves the most, and the only reason for that is so they can protect everyone around them.

LadyL333

Both anime's revolve around a prodigy swordsman, the hummor and fighting sequinces are simular in both, and the charctor devolpment is paid attention to dispite the huge amount of charactors.

I think both stories have the same samuri feel to them. They both share the actuon packed scenes followed by scenes of intense emotions.

saiyamar

Both of these anime has sword fights, comedy, romance, fiction and cool hair! (Couldn't help it)! Each anime has a main character who fights to protect with a sword, and i think that is probably the most important thing they both share.

If you're one of those people who enjoyed the anime as a whole for evertything about it, then this anime is also a must watch for you as they have many of the same qualities in them.

eternalsong

This series is about swordplay and a villian, just like Bleach. The main character here isn't like Ichigo. He is calm with a touch of humor when he wants to show it and serious when he needs to be. Ichigo in some ways becomes serious when he needs to, which links these two together. Overall, this is an excellent anime that will catch your attention quickly!

Both is a anime that you whant to wach more of. its a good story not just fight, thats inportant in a Anime. You are geting to know the pepole in the serie.

Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time.

If you liked Bleach, you'll surely like Death Note too. Both anime have great stories, which make you want to watch more and more to know what happens after that.

BrandonHeat

Both Death Note and Bleach are very different but are also very alike, considering the fact that they both come from Shonen Jump. Both anime involve supernatural-like stuff a lot, including Shinigami (Soul Reapers) and the two worlds that they frequent. Also, Light from DN and Ichigo from Bleach are very alike because they are both stubborn, have a passion for the world they imagine, and want to help create and protect it.

Weeqay

Both Death Note and Bleach have quite a bit of twists in their stories. If you love being torn apart by unexpected surprises, be sure to watch both.

yvonniewaj

Both series involve shinigami, though each approah the word "shinigami" differently. Both set in modern japan, and revolve around a teenage boy protaganist (protaganist can be debated for death note)

holyzac

Animes that play around with death, Death Note and Bleach. These 2 animes make it seem as if Death is nothing. If you like either one you should watch the other as one of the most mysterious elements of anime, death is what ties these 2 animes together.

mexitek

Both animes have to do with shinagami's aka death gods and both have insane power and use it to thier limits..bleach has a lot of fighting and death note is more of a psychological war game...in the end they are both great

aoriente

Death Note is a suspenseful head turning anime, with a lot of plot twists and psychological mind games. It is not an anime you can sit there and just watch I find myself thinking and anticipating whats gonna happen next, every episode was suspenseful and mind blowing.

fizrox

So is this shinigami motive so in fashion lately or what? Anyway, if this is what turns you on along with interesting, supernatural plot then you shoud deffinitely check this anime out.

werehuntress

Both contain Death Gods, even though they are portrayed differently in each series. Both feature protagonists who are striving to make their respective worlds better, although Light is going about it in a different way than Ichigo. However for the avid shonen fan, this anime is a must watch.

Adam

This doesn't work both ways. Bleach and Death Note aren't similiar in any way, despite having shinigami in both, but fans of shounen who liked Bleach need to check out Death Note. That is, to see what good shounen is. I'm working on a gut feeling here, as Death Note is simple, yet deep, enough to attract most.

CMHerrera

Both deals with Shinigami, and fighting but Deathnotes more of a long distance and inteligent type of fight.
