The soul of the demon Mouryou has been freed, and with it his ambition to take over the world and create a "Thousand Year Kingdom." However, he will first have to recover his body from where it was sealed by the priestess Miroku. The only threat to his plans is Miroku’s daughter Shion, the only one with the power to stop him – and it will be up to Naruto, Sakura, Lee and Neji to escort her safely to once more seal Mouryou's soul. However, things won't be easy for Naruto and the gang: Mouryou has control over an unstoppable ghost army and has sent four ninjas to kill Shion; even more alarming is Shion’s newest vision of an impending death… which involves Naruto himself.
Back in the real world, Ichigo and the gang have returned to eliminating normal hollows, but new dangers await them. After being attacked by strange white spirits known as "blanks", Ichigo and friends are saved by the female shinigami Senna – but she's no ordinary shinigami. For Senna cannot remember her squad number, yet retains memories of the past; and she is sought after by Ganryu, the leader of a group known as "Dark Ones", who was exiled from Soul Society. Ganryu is trying to attain an item known as the "Memory Rosary" in order to take his revenge on those who struck him down, and he needs Senna to do it. Who is Senna, and how does she fit into Ganryu’s nefarious plans?
Both Bleach and Naruto feature strong male leads that have problems with authority, following instructions, and both lead characters, Ichigo and Naruto, have a strong sense of justice. Both anime franchises have a long-running TV series, filled with action and adventure. Both Bleach and Naruto franchises have supplemental movies featuring both favorite canon series characters with new characters in a stand-alone story that relates to but is not part of the series continuity.
Both the first Bleach movie and the first Naruto Shippuden movie are thematically similar in that they both feature as a new character a female on a journey to discover her true self and whose destiny is greater than she. In each movie, the fate of the world depends on this girl, and our heroes are there to help save the world and help things turn out on the side of goodness and right. Oh, and to save the girl. Plenty of action in both movies, decent animation and music, and a moralistic, feel-good plotline driven by familiar faces appearing everywhere. If you enjoyed either movie, I think that the other one is a good match for you to see.

Miharu’s only chance of survival is to embrace this mystic world and become the King of Nabari himself. With the help of his new ninja friends, Kouichi, Shimizu, and Kumohira, can he come to grips with his powers or will he fall prey to his many enemies instead?
Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!
Luffy is pretty much Naruto in a pirate suit with a flag.. Except maybe alittle more clueless and loves meat awhole lot more then noodles. Seriously though, Naruto has his dream to become Hokage. Luffy has his dream of becoming the "Pirate King". Both are the highest titles one can obtain in there respective "Career Choices". Overcoming numerous challenges and obstacles along the way, winning the hearts of friends and people alike without ever losing a shred of their aloofness. The way I see it, I keep on bouncing between Naruto epi's and One Piece epi's. The way my favoritism wavers the age old question may never be answered... "Who would win, Pirates or Ninja?"
