Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
Like guys with superpowers? Then the protagists of both Code Geass and Bleach will not disappoint you. Both Lelouch and Ichigo use their powers to their fullest potential. The two animes also contain great art and music, so if you like one, you might like the other.
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
So you enjoy Bleach, But you're thinking it's waaaaaay too drawn out! Well good sirs & madams I present to you Darker Than Black a Bones studio Production baring similarities to Bleach, with people who possess Supernatural Powers.

For Pandy and Retro, waking up naked with amnesia wasn't the high point of their day. While going on a crime spree, the duo are captured and sent to the infamous Dead Leaves, a notorious prison where the baddest of the bad are sent. Using the bathroom is a chore, eating is force fed and escape seems impossible -- but is it? Join Pandy, Retro, the drill endowed Chinko Drill and a gang of inmates as they plot their escape from the hell that is Dead Leaves!
Bleach is a samurai series that has lots of action, while Dead Leaves is a movie that has enough action to make your head explode. What do they have in common? Lots of action and lots of violence. If you are a fan of both of those things, you should watch these anime.
Who knew coming of age could be so tough? 16 year-old Yohko Mano is your typical high-schooler dealing with a not-so-typical upbringing. Her grandmother has been training her in the martial arts and tests her skills on a regular basis. And all Yohko really cares about is a date with Hideki! Well, fickle fate intervenes and Yohko's destiny as a destroyer of demons is revealed. This entertaining romp has plenty of fanservice and action to keep the boys drooling.
Quite simply, both anime are about teenagers fighting demons with big swords and neat outfits. If one likes Bleach, they might find it interesting to view Devil Hunter Yohko, just to see how anime were slaying demons in the early '90's. If you're craving that old nostalgia of devil hunting, Bleach is a good modern version

If you've ever played Tetris, you know how certain blocks fit together to form one complete object. Bleach and Devil May Cry, are two such blocks.
Both these wonderful series have something for everyone. They share in common very stylish fight scenes, lots of blood and violence for those who are into that type of thing. The fight scenes in both usually involve fighting unholy beings of sorts Devils (Devil May Cry) or Hollows (Bleach). Both are also killed by means of the occasional sword that's the size of it's weilder (C'mon, who doesn't like huge swords?).
If you're not into the killing part, both have some Comedy aspects, such as Dante always getting screwed outta a strawberry sundae in Devil May Cry or talking stuffed animals in Bleach. (Though Bleach has a ton more humorous scenes than Devil May Cry)
If you're somebody who likes to think, both anime have a slight mystery esque at times. Weather it be figuring out the voice of a stalker to identify them or find out why a certain race is having an uprising from very sketchy details, there's usually a mystery to solve in both anime...and wen there's not, kick back and watch a fight scene!
Lastly, for he bishounen-loving girls, there are hot guys in both these shows. I havn't met a teenage girl yet who doesn't think Dante's hotter than hell (no pun intended) and there are just a slew of different guys to pick from in Bleach to fit anyones style. Both these anime are also great to come up with fanfiction pairings or doujinshi pairings if your into that.
So why don't you go ahead and play anime Tetris by putting these two blocks together and watching whichever one you haven't seen yet!
