Synopsis:

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.

If you liked Bleach you will like Persona for sure. Both series provides a plot about characters with supernatural powers and abnormal potentia. Mixed with a great action and mistery both animes will leave you with beating heart wanting more.

Project ARMS

The resulting surgery brought about some unexpected, but not entirely unwelcome changes -- enhanced healing along with the presence of a superweapon dubbed "ARMS" in his body. But with all power comes a price, and with newfound allies who share his predicament, he must battle a secret organization trying to control the ARMS while trying to find the truth behind the weapon in his body for himself...

Bleach and Project ARMS remind me of each other on an almost superficial level. Each series contains individuals who kinda find out they have special abilities, and because of these special abilities end up having to fight. In the course of each series, the characters grow more and more powerful as they overcome stronger and stronger opponents. Needless to say, there is a lot of fighting.

And you know, sometimes you just need a series with good fight scenes and a decent plot to back it up. Both Bleach and Project ARMS deliver on this formula. If you liked one I am sure you will like the other.

Psychic Academy

Psychic Academy
  • TV (24 eps x 10 min)

Ai has always lived in the shadow of his brother Zero, one of the strongest psychics of this generation. After Ai's aura tests true and he is recommended to the Psychic Academy (where his first love Orina attends), he sets off to follow his path. Once arriving in this chaotic place, where people can fight using just the power of their auras, new friends (such as the well-endowed Myuu) are drawn to his side. As he is forced to fight against those who hate psychics and psychics alike, he is also faced with a difficult choice: the girl from his past, or his new fiery soulmate?

High school life and fighting including magic/unique powers and abilities. The are some differences though... Psychic Academy clearly has quite a bit more fanservice and focusses somewhat less on fighting. You should keep in mind that Bleach has a whole lot slower pace as compared to Psychic Academy, as Psychic Academy have only short episodes.

Sacred Seven

Sacred Seven

Suddenly the boy finds himself thrust into the struggle between this strange creature and the ones fighting it: the Aiba Foundation and it's leader, the wealthy Ruri. Though reluctant to fight at first, amidst the battle, Alma learns that he possesses a power known as Sacred Seven that is linked to not only these mysterious creatures but also his forgotten past. Now, along with the help of Ruri and her bestpectacled butler Makoto, Alma must take up the mantle of protector to save the world from this new threat.

Bleach and Sacred Seven are quite similar in character dynamics and storyline. Both include a supernatural power, monsters bent on consuming the protagonists, and a mixture of school and fighting.

The male lead is a powerful young man who is aided by a woman who releases his power (Ruri's crystals or Rukia's glove). There is also a slight rivalry between the male lead and a supporting male character (Ishida or Kagami).

Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon

Life can be tough when you're a teenager. Enter Tsukino Usagi, an average, if somewhat clumsy, junior high student whose voracious appetite for sweets and capacity for tears are offset by her enthusiasm for life. Her normal existence is suddenly turned upside down when a talking cat named Luna comes into her life. Suddenly, Usagi finds herself with the ability to transform into the superhero known as Sailor Moon. Fighting the occasional monster may be the least of her worries, though...

Bleach and Sailor Moon are like different sides of a coin. Both series are over 200 episodes long, and are about high school students who have mysterious powers which help them to beat demons (yet they still have the free time to cook, go shopping, etc). But, even though they are similar, they are made for different people - boys and girls - so they still have great individuality based on their audience. If your young brother or sister wants to watch something "like that, onii (onee)-chan!", you know what you should recommend them.
