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.

Can Yusuke protect the human and spirit worlds and still manage to save himself in the process?
I think both animes have a lot in common, both have an almost preapocalipticcal story, both deal with desperate scenes, and i think i've even seen a part really resembling yusuke at Inuyasha while watching the movie. Any way, if you liked one, you'll probably like the other one, since both deal with supernatural powers, and have really arogant protagonists.

The Sinners launch an attack and in the process kidnap Ichigo's younger sister Yuzu and take her to Hell. With the help of a mysterious man named Kokuto, Ichigo and his friends must now travel into the depths of Hell to stop the Sinners and save Yuzu, unaware that their actions could bring Hell to the World of the Living.
If you like the action and adventure of the Inuyasha movie, where Inuyasha and his special giant sword Tessaiga take on arch villain Minomaru, who is determined to increase his power enough to control the world, then I think you would also like the activity and exploits of Ichigo and his special giant sword Zangetsu in the fourth Bleach movie where Ichigo goes up against nemesis Kokuto who is determined to use Ichigo's power to break free of the boundaries of Hell.
