Ichigo Kurosaki is an average high school boy with a not-so-average ability to see spirits - something that hadn't affected his life much until a strange woman entered his room one day. Named Kuchiki Rukia, she's a shinigami who was sent from the spirit world to destroy a hollow - a dead-soul-turned-monster; and much to her surprise, Ichigo can see her. When the hollow suddenly attacks his family, Rukia intervenes and is injured in the process, leaving Ichigo to fight it himself. But when Rukia lends him her shinigami powers - which is forbidden - he inadvertently drains them away and has no way to return them. Now, Ichigo is a full-fledged shinigami who must juggle his studies with his newfound duty of fighting hollows; but having gained his powers through forbidden means, the spirit world isn't going to leave Ichigo alone. Ichigo and Rukia must keep their situation a secret from the other shinigami, or the consequences could be dire.
If you like epic sword fighting adventures then Ares and bleach will have alot in commen for you!Although its more violent, Ares has no people with super powers and it shares alot of aspects with bleach that you'll see if you read it!
Action and comedy with fights a plenty, both Busou Renkin and Bleach contain enough of your daily recommended dosage of spiky-haired heroes with their illogically large weapons, and magical powers that they get from a female fighter of their respected professions. Both toss a serious salad every now and then but still play the comedy angle more often than not.
In a land overrun by yoma - monsters that feed upon human innards and take on the appearance and memories of their victims - humans are little more than cattle awaiting slaughter. The only opposition to the yoma is The Organization, a group led by a council of mysterious men who send out their all-female warriors (known as claymores) to do their bidding. However, The Organization is not charitable; a town must pay an exorbitant fee for their services. Likewise, many of the claymores care little for those who they protect. Clare, the lowest ranked claymore, lives only so that she may one day avenge her mentor.
Fighting, that's what brings these two together: Fights that span most of a chapter, spilling out into others and filling up a volume with violence of a badass degree. While Bleach contains a healthy dose of fancy lad's magic and Claymore on the other hand is devoid of magic overall, both still contain the roots of good, quality sword fighting, be it magic swords or just big-ass blades.
Claymore is also the more serious of the two, firmly maintaining drama over comedy but Bleach tosses it's chips in to match it with the twists and turns of it's plot and serious moments to raise the tension. Guess it doesn't help that both worlds are a world of badass on their own, where generally non-humans combat otherworldly creatures. There are exceptions but the fantasy/supernatural reign supreme.
The first law of alchemy is that "one cannot gain something without giving something of equal value in return" - a rule that two souls dare to cross. When Edward and Alphonse Elric try to revive their dead mother, breaking the taboo of human transmutation in process, Ed loses his right arm and left leg while Al loses his entire body. After the tragedy, an alchemist named Roy Mustang visits them and tells Edward to become a state alchemist to find a way to recover what they have lost. Accompanied by Al, whose soul is now attached to a metal suit of armor, Ed is fitted with auto-mail parts in place of his lost limbs and becomes a state alchemist by the name of "Full Metal Alchemist." Together, they set forth on a journey to find the Philosopher's Stone - the one item that is rumored to have the power to restore them.
Fullmetal Alchemist and Bleach have many concepts in common.
Both series offer main character which are insanely powerful, and have their Beloved Mother dead,which brings major changes to their life and personality.
There is lot of action in both series with Fights closer to fantasy.
Both have abundant Villanious characters , who must harm main char and their friends and in the end Eradicated from face of earth.Like bleach, FMA offers supernatural elements to some extent - like Homunclus,Philosphers Stones and Immortality.Both manga have Good art, with FMA slightly better and same case with story where FMA is one of the best
