If you liked the Bleach anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Have you ever been sick and tired of the world we live in? So much, that you've tried any means possible to escape it? Zed shares the same feelings as we all do. In the smog ridden, and sunless world of Calm, people manage to scrape by on the bare minimum. Fed up with living in this hellhole, Zed looks for an outlet to another world. Beating down and smashing every door in his sight, he hopes that if he believes strong enough, his gateway will open -- open to a place beyond his imagination, and where his life will have meaning. After finally being transported to another world full of nature and endless battles, Zed soon comes to realize that his life of purpose has just begun.
If you enjoyed Bleach and are looking for some more low-plot high-action shounen, I would definitely recommend Kiba to you. Bleach fans will also find similarities between the characters of Zed of Kiba and Ichigo of Bleach.
I think both have good intense plots that suit and complament the amount of action in both shows.
Bleach and Kiba are both adventure filled action packed series with fantasy worlds and monsters throughout them. So if you're into that sort of thing, you should check both of them out. Bleach is more spiritual while Kiba takes a more sci-fi futuristic/fantasy route. Both have strong characters and contain good ammounts of action and emotional content.
There's an adage that one man's trash is another man's treasure; but for Kosuke Ueki, one man's trash is another man's... tree?! Junior high school teacher Mr. K is in the running for the title of Celestial King. Candidates must select a junior high school student to endow powers upon, and then the students might fight each other mercilessly. The victorious student's benefactor will become the new Celestial King! Kosuke was Mr. K's choice, and for his power, he chose the ability to turn trash into trees. Furthermore, if he uses his abilities to harm others, he will lose one of his natural talents. Now, Kosuke must battle a variety of other power users to help Mr. K win it all, all while keeping his talents intact!
Besides the fact that Bleach and Law of Ueki pertain to an alternative universe, they also have another major common similarity: their protagonist is a super-powered and powerful power user. The reason why I repeated the word 'power' many times over is to emphasis their crazy imbalanced capabilities. They will thrill you with their various techniques and draw you into their universe. Cheers!
If you like action packed anime with a healthy dose of humour and fun then both Bleach and Law of Ueki are for you. Both series have a central character who is learning about their power whilst trying to achieve their goals. Als both series place a large emphasis on teamwork and friendship as the best way to succeed rather than trying to do it all alone. If you like one of these series then it is well worth at least giving the other a go.
Ichigo and Ueki have very similar ideals and both have the tendency to take ridiculous risks in order to help other people, whether they know them or not.
I think these animes compliment each other perfectly in that they both have the same kind of story, but with completely different elements - e.g. Celestial King Tournament is entirely different from Soul Society. People who like Law of Ueki will almost certainly enjoy Bleach, and I personally feel that both are animes to watch before you die.
Samurai Champloo is all about style, from the dj-style scratching scene changes to the hip-hop-inspired soundtrack to the eclectic character design. Mugen's fighting style is a funky meld of capoeira and limb-cutting, and Jin is the dramatic foil; he is all steel and old-school samurai style. What binds them together is the desire to test each other's abilities, and a promise to a girl named Fuu: to find the samurai that smells of sunflowers, who plays a pivotal role in her past. Together they travel through edo-era Japan, finding battle and comedy wherever they stop.
If you liked Bleach you would also like Samurai Champloo because the characters are very much the same, especially Ichiro and Mugen. Both act goofy and silly, but when they get down to it, they are quite serious and expert fighters! The music in each anime is also the same hip hop/rap genre.
Both anime have great sword-based combat and a great quirky sense of humor. The characters are also very similar, with Ichigo/Mugan and Jin/Ishida being very similar.
If you enjoyed either of these anime then you need to watch the other.
Both Bleach and Samurai Champloo are anime with a lot of cool swords and fights with weapons, so if that is the reason you like this anime you will like the other one to.
Tsuzuki Asato is a shinigami: a guardian of death. Acting as an investigator in Juuouchou, the bureau in charge of ensuring that each soul passes through the cycle of life naturally, his job often involves dealing with those who would disrupt this cycle. His life after death is about to change, however, as he is assigned a new partner, Kurosaki Hisoka, for a case in Nagasaki - a case seeming to involve some sort of vampire. But the two shinigami soon find that something deeper lies behind this blood-sucking menace...
Amazing art work and detail, as well as a great story line. Each focuses on the problems of the after life and while battling vicious and psychotic foes. Both are great anime to watch for anyone interested in the after life, or who wants to have a good laugh.
Both are about young men becoming Shinigami and working to protect both the "living" and the "dead", using mysterious powers. There is also a lot of interplay between the protagonists and the antagonists with some interesting past stories revealed. Lastly, the main character's voice actor in DoD as well as the antagonist's voice actor are also in Bleach in much the same role.
A mysterious monkey-tailed boy named Goku teams up with a teenage computer-wiz girl named Bulma to search for the mystic Dragon Balls. According to legend, whoever collects all 7 Dragon Balls will have any one wish granted. Join Goku in this hilarious anime masterpiece, as he races and battles to save the world from the forces of darkness. Who will find the balls first?
There is young boy who's growing with powers and protecting world from bad guys. Super powers, magic, fights etc. - you can find it in both.
If you enjoyed one of these I am sure you would have fun with the other, too. Dragon Ball and Bleach are typical shounen anime in which the main characters get stronger and stronger and have to fight with loads of fearsome enemies all the time. If you watched Dragon Ball first then be aware because Bleach takes the usage of filler episodes to a whole new dimension.
