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.

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.

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.

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.

Descendants of Darkness

Descendants of Darkness

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.

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.

neutrino neutrino says...

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.
