Bleach

Bleach

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 the kick-ass action of either Naruto or Bleach, then you are likely to enjoy the other. Both have a decent mix of action and comedy and generally have a similar vibe to them. If you like one, then check out the other.

For those who hate Bleach and love Naruto or hate Naruto and love Bleach. THEY ARE ALL IDIOTS.. >8D

Why? They are fighting at which manga is better. That is too stupid because they could have enjoyed both mangas without question.

Naruto is a good manga that nicely depicts ancient Japanese politics. [What? You don't know?] The depth of the story is amazing and the variety of fighting styles is vast.

Bleach is a good manga that shows exorcism through cool fighting. The theme of the manga richly displays Japanese culture and some Spanish on the side. [Or is it Mexican? O.O?] The story is high strung and the effect is top notch.

So quit fighting over some menial and degrading thing. I'd say the hate all came from the anime. They made the god darned fillers so terrible!

Both Naruto and Bleach are dramatic, with magical aspects to them (Jutsu for Naruto, and Shinigami for Bleach). They both involve fighting in the "good vs evil" way (Naruto vs Orochimaru, Ichigo vs Hollows).  Both of the stories are dramatic, adventurous, and have comedy in them.  Lastly both stories are almost divided into two parts-Naruto with Naruto Shippuden, and Bleach with slightly older char.s Bleach.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

Action. Glorious cartoony violence, with all them fancy moves that shift 'em from methodical and realistic to awesome and cool. Both Naruto and Bleach are staples of the shounen genre and for good reason: Aside from the mentioned and essential action, both contain a good dose of comedy and serious moments that prelude those good ol' fight scenes. They have more plot than you'd expect of them and are good fun all-around.

Anudevil13 Anudevil13 says...

Both Naruto and Bleach are your typical shounen series. With heavy doses of action, A mix of comedy and teaspoon of Romance.

The Main character in both series has large amounts of sleeping power in them which they are unable to use, untill the fated meetings which change their life. Read through as how they battle the Evil forces and protect their friends and world from the impending Doom

One Piece

Both the main characters in Naruto and One Piece have limitless determination when it comes to their dreams. They don't care if you try to harm them mentally or physically but they will crush you with their true strength when it comes to harming anyone that they care about. Other than that all you will see is a couple of idiots that can't take care of themselves unless someone is with them. Leaving the reader wanting to see what will happen to these two people in their numerous battle packed adventures on their way to achieving their dreams.

cassiesheepgirl cassiesheepgirl says...

Both Naruto and One Piece have  central protagonist who is driven by the determination to fulfil their dream. Both Naruto and Luffy are headstrong and vivacious characters that you can't help but like. Mix in a good dose of humour and action and if you enjoyed one then the other is well worth checking out!

SnowyGamer SnowyGamer says...

Both Naruto and Onepiece have similar main charcters. There both underdogs trying to aim for something higher. 

Anudevil13 Anudevil13 says...

One piece and naruto have many similarities in them.

The main char in both is Idiot type character who is kind,pasionate, Big eater and has goal he aims to achieve(Hokage for Naruto and Pirate Kinds for Luffy). In their journey they meet many new friends and enemies, have some fun, some action and some tragedy

Both Naruto and O-parts hunter almost exactly alike, except O-parts is more mature and deals more with religion than Naruto. Both of the main characters have evil demons inside of them that try to take over their bodies. Some of the characters are similar as well (Jin and Sasuke, for example, both had similar powers). Both of these series' have timeskips during which the characters become more mature mentally and physically.

kittycat kittycat says...

Having a demon living in you isn't all that fun for both main characters in Naruto and O-Parts. Both boys find it hard to live a normal everyday life when they are both always being pushed away from others. So how will they survive this harsh world? That is something you have to find out on your own in the grand adventures these two will take you on. With the help of a few friends they will show you a world that only they can see and the power they have to use in order to keep those demons away from harming anyone in this action packed adventure of theirs.

Both series revoval around two boys who both have something sealed deep insided of them. Having to battler enemy ninjas, and learning how to control that power so that neither one looses control and end up doing something they that both main character's may regret.

Like any other series both main character's have a desire (for Naruto its to become the next Hockage, for Miharu it is to grant his friend's wish.).

If you like the comedic and action pacted adventure of one, you may also like the other as well.

HollowNobody HollowNobody says...

Naruto and Nabari no Ou are both ninja-themed stories in which the main character struggles to gain control over an evil power that resides within in him.

In both series the hero intends to not only control his own inner demon but to also save and redeem a villainous friend whom he treasures dearly.

If you enjoyed one I believe you will enjoy the other.

Kekkaishi

Kekkaishi

Five hundred years ago there lived a feudal lord with a vast amount of spiritual power. To keep it from falling into the hands of demonic Ayakashi, the mage Tokimori Hazama and his two students were called to defend the land. However, they fell ill, and the feudal lord was killed and buried on the land now called Karasumori. Years later the successors of the Hazama students, Yoshimori and Tokine, have inherited the powers of the Hazama clan. They are Kekkaishi, users of the Kekkai, a secret and powerful technique that creates a strong barrier to capture and eliminate Ayakashi. Protectors of the power buried beneath Karasumori, Yoshimori and Tokine spend their days in the school built on the land, and their nights defending it from attackers who wish to use the power for their own purposes. With Karasumori's power growing more unpredictable everyday, will Yoshimori become strong enough to protect the ones he loves?

Action, violence, and protecting the ones you love.  Naruto and Kekkaishi both have many of the same themes.  The also share similar main characters who may not be as strong as everyone else, but the sure do have a whole lot of endurance.  There are a lot of parallels between these two manga.  You will probably like one if you like the other
