Both Ikkitousen 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.

These two are very wonderful anime, with alot fighting and intersting storylines. The main characters are always risking their lives for friends and family. Also, if you like this anime which is about spirits than you'll definitely like Ikkitousen

Both Tokyo Underground and Bleach are about the intrusion of a secret world into the life of an ordinary high school student - a student who also gains a new and rather unique and powerful ability. Also, both Ichigo and Rumina are known for being excellent fighters and can be hot-headed at times; they tend to act on impulse and in the aid of a female, who is mainly the heroine of the story.

Bleach and Tokyo Underground share similar plotlines, characters and protagonists.

Ichigo (Bleach) and Rumina (Tokyo Underground), both have a fighting reputation around their school and they are both down right stubborn. Which helps them when they need to rescue the main female protagonist from the clutches of Soul Society (Bleach) and The Company(Tokyo Underground).

The layout of the battles are really quite similar, as they both fight to protect their friends. The comedy and humour is pretty much the same as well!

I would recommend Tokyo Underground to Bleach fans and Bleach to Tokyo Underground fans ^.^

If you liked Bleach more for the blood and action moments and not so much the down time, then Elfien Lied is a nice short but robust anime. It's as if the action never stops and there is plenty of gore.

Jarvis51 Jarvis51 says...

The mix of action and comedy is great in both Elfen Lied and Bleach. The plots are well-formed, and the characters are unsure. Each kept me interested, which is hard to do given that I don't have the attention span to watch TV.

Saiyuki

Saiyuki

In the mystical world of Shangri-la, demons and humans live side by side, watched over by a parthenon of ancient Chinese gods. But when normally-civilized demons start to go berserk, the gods require the services of Genjou Sanzo - a Buddhist priest with a magical gun, an evil-banishing scripture and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Aided by the ancient monkey god Son Goku, the half-demon Sha Gojyo and the demon exterminator Cho Hakkai, he sets off on a treacherous journey westward, with armies of demons, dark mages and angry gods all standing in his way...

Both Saiyuki and Bleach are good to watch if you're into action and adventure anime. The fighting scenes of both anime are so great. Both anime also contain funny scenes that can make you laugh even if watched many times.

FallenAngelSorrows FallenAngelSorrows says...

Both Saiyuki and Bleach are spirtual in nature, as well as in comedy, action and adventure. Each focuses on certain things like from their pasts, wanting to become stronger, or the critical problem at hand. Each also has a funny scene that no matter how many times or memorized you'll still laugh. Also there characters has great emotional past that you just can't help but watch.
