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.
The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?
Fate Stay/Night and Bleach are two shows that are one in the same. In Bleach the story fallows the main character Ichigo a young man that can see spirits but doesn't know why. In Fate Stay/Night the main character Emmia is a low quality magician. What make them the same is who both are put in the most awkward and crazy positions. In Bleach Ichigo has to take on the role of death while Emmia takes on the role of a Holy protector. Their backgrounds make the shows even more compelling. Both shows have a good supporting cast especially in the ladies that surround them. They both happen to have love interest in more than one lady. The story for both can be very dark some times and light at others. The story also does let up for some well time comedy which can be really good. The voice cast for both shows is good and well done. If you like comedy, magic, spirits, big swords, and a compelling story then both of these are for you.
Instead of zanpaktous these magicians have servant heros hand they are fighting each other over the Holy Grail, that can make their wish come true. They are the same in the way that the polot and the action secns are made.
While the basic plots in Fate/Stay Night and Bleach are quite different, they share a very similar mood. Both are filled with intense one-on-one fights, with the main character slowly becoming more aware of his abilities as time goes on. However, there's quite a bit of drama between these fights in both series, making them well-balanced. The main characters themselves are also extremely similar; Ichigo/Shirou are both intent on protecting what they care strongly about at all costs, and Rukia/Saber have similar inner conflicts and must come to face their painful pasts. In addition, these two shows deal with the same themes: honor, self-sacrifice, and accepting what cannot be changed. They have quite a bit of symbolism and will often force you to dig beneath the surface to find the hidden meanings of the stories. If you enjoyed either Fate/Stay Night or Bleach, then you're bound to enjoy the other for at least one of these reasons.
Kagura and Yomi are two girls who have a bond that cannot be broken. While once they fought side by side against the supernatural forces that threaten the planet, fate had something different in store for these star-crossed companions. Yet to understand the present, one must first experience the past – a time before Kagura’s involvement with the Supernatural Disaster Prevention Agency. Always cheery and good-natured to a fault, the young Kagura first meets Yomi when she is invited into her home. Over time, the two battle malicious spirits and grow closer together – but soon, more terrifying foes begin to reveal themselves. A swarm of glowing blue butterflies and a mysterious stone are harbingers of darker things to come, and one thing’s for sure: Kagura and Yomi will never be the same.
Both being animes about fighting and and exorcism. Bleach fans should check out Ga Rei Zero and vice versa
Being an anime that shows the story before the story in the manga. [Wow! O.O] Ga Rei Zero shows a tragedy that happens before the manga. Don't get caught by the aniti-climatic first episode. The creators do that to pull your leg haha >8D
Bleach is the anime made from the original manga. Unlike Naruto, Bleach's fillers just come out of nowhere
Ga Rei Zero (at least at first) and Bleach definitely have a similar feel with supernatural monsters, action and a hefty dose of darkness. It might not be the strongest pairing, but I definitely had a similar feeling when watching both.
Ga-Rei Zero and Bleach, both have:
- a focus on action, fighting,
- an organization that fights agasisnt evil spirits.
In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!
There are many references in Gintama to Bleach. If you enjoy Bleach's humour, and/or have seen a lot of anime, you will enjoy Gintama. If you enjoy the action and fighting in Gintama, you will enjoy Bleach too.
Bleach and Gintama are both Shonen Jump anime, and not saying all Jump anime are all similar, but both animes share quite a few characteristics. Both animes are like flips of each other; in Bleach, replace the main action with comedy and the sub comedy with action, and you've got Gintama. Vice-versa. And although Gintama has multiple times more parodies than Bleach, I'm sure if you enjoyed one, you'll surely enjoy the other.
Despite the fact Gintama has mentioned Bleach numerous times, and it's awsome to acknowledge that fact.
The two anime are very similar in characters.
Shirahama "weak legs" Kenichi is a typical high school student with typical problems: he's frequently bullied and tends to run away in the face of his enemies. Things change when Kenichi meets Furinji Miu, whose grandfather runs a dojo; and not knowing what he's getting himself into, he signs up to become a disciple. As Kenichi's life-threatening training continues and he becomes more and more powerful, he inadvertently becomes the target of the deadly gang called Ragnarok. With mental and physical challenges ahead, can Kenichi survive his encounters with Ragnarok, or will the masters of his dojo get to him first?
Bleach and Kenichi are both about fighting and have comedy. Only in Kenichi, the anime is about martial arts, while in Bleach the people have special powers. That doesn't really matter that much though, because they both give you the same feeling and are great anime.
Kurosaki Ichigo, the Shinigami and Kenichi Weak Legs, the Weakest person in school. Both fighting for what they believe is right and for the people they love. Sacrificing everything for them, in a fight they cannot lose, or it would mean the destruction of everything they love.
Both of these animes deal with some rather interesting fighting styles. While Kenichi deals mostly with hand-to-hand combat, and Bleach deals with sword-fighting techniques, it is certain that a battle is the only way for the protagonist to grow. There is a fair amount of comedy and action in both animes, as well as side-ecchi.
Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?
This recommendation is based on a gut feeling. Both Bleach and HxH are hilarious, but also have some serious episodes. Above all, both share incredibly exciting fights.
Bleach and Hunter X Hunter are series composed of characters that fight with abilities powered by their own auras. Hunter X Hunter is somewhat more light hearted than Bleach, but also does away with the filler feeling you get from Bleach. If you are looking for something similar to Bleach, I wholeheartedly recommend Hunter X Hunter.
