Synopsis:

Five years have passed since Goku and his friends defeated Piccolo Jr. and restored peace to the planet. Gohan - Goku's son - and a variety of good, bad, and morally ambiguous characters are back, and perpetually not ready for action! Aliens, androids, and magicians all hatch evil plots to destroy the world and it's up to Goku to save the Earth once more - that is, once he and his comrades train plentifully in preparation.  Enemies will become friends and power levels will rise to unimaginable levels, but even with the help of the legendary Dragon Balls and Shen Long will it be enough to save Earth from ultimate destruction?

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yusuke Urameshi was a normal middle school punk until he was hit and killed by a car, while saving a child. His selfless action earned him the right to gain his life back and serve as a detective of the spirit world, keeping the world of the living safe from a myriad of demons. But being reborn has its price: Yusuke must hatch a spirit beast that will develop according to his actions, and if he doesn't act in a good and honest manner, it will eat his soul. Can Yusuke protect the human and spirit worlds and still manage to save himself in the process?

Yu Yu Hakusho, A superpower martial arts superpower anime. this great series has an action packed story set around the four main characters Yusuke Urameshi, Kazuma Kuwabara, Kurama and Hiei. and their epic breathtaking battles against demons. Yu Yu Hakusho is the only anime that the characters powers come close to that of the Dragonball series a true legend and my personal #2 best Anime, second only to Dragonball Z !

Kari5

Both these series focus on martial arts, with a touch of magical/supernatual/energy beam abilities. Both are long shounen series with lengthy battles but have a great cast of characters. A fan of one would no doubt enjoy the other as well.

Bleach

Bleach

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.

Bleach and Dragon Ball Kai are similar in many ways and also different in both ways. For starters they are both very popular anime. Both are based on very exaggerated and violent fights. They both have similar plots. Many of you might not believe it, but yes the plot of Dragon Ball Kai and Bleach are similar in many ways.

Mobile Suit Gundam I

Mobile Suit Gundam I
  • Movie (1 ep x 140 min)
  • 1981

It is Universal Century 0079, a time when the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon are locked in a bitter war over independence. Having just completed the prototype mobile suits known as Gundam, the space colony Green Noah finds itself under attack from the enemy – inadvertently plunging fifteen-year-old Amuro Ray into the cockpit of a Gundam. Now assigned to the new assault carrier White Base, both Amuro and other Gundam pilots must survive the vicious battles of Zeon as the war rages on. Amuro will soon see the true nature of war; will it consume him, or awaken something from within?

So you are watching the classics.

You have less time to Straight up ball out on the monstrosity of the giant series that they are.

Have no fear. Shorter versons that tell enough of the story, and do it with one less episode of powering up, or whining about how you should not be piloting some destructive machine.

Are these stories pretty much different in flair and substance? Yes. 

Are they aimed at your 12 year old boy with a lot of action, oh hell yeah.

So if your older, want to endulge in some action (missles and explosions vs martial arts... and explosions) you could do no worse than Kai and Gundam Movies I,II and III.

Mobile Suit Gundam III: Encounters in Space

Mobile Suit Gundam III: Encounters in Space
  • Movie (1 ep x 141 min)
  • 1982

The final battle between the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon approaches as the White Base takes off into space, with Char's Zanzibar in hot pursuit. Amuro encounters a Newtype girl named Lalah Sune; they briefly connect, but soon Amuro discovers that she is linked to Char himself. As the war continues, Amuro realizes that the true evil that must be stopped isn't the Earth Federation or Zeon – it's the Zabi family. Amuro uses his Newtype abilities to go head to head with the Red Comet, but Char also has a mobile suit up his sleeve. Can White Base survive the final days of the war, or will the "white light" eliminate them all?
