Short introduction

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.

One Piece and Bleach are both shounen animes, both contain adventure, action and comedy. One Piece is less serious, has more comedy, and therefore Bleach is the more serious one of those two.

7. Fullmetal Alchemist

Bleach and FullMetal Alchemist are both action-packed animes, featuring a spunky male lead who combats evil and, in general, plays the hero, all the while sporting a fairly combative attitude. While they put up a tough front, both have a sensitive side, and are very caring and willing to defend the weak and fight for justice. Although Alchemy and Shinigami abilities are very different, they have that same element of fantasy. The plots in each are larger than one would give them credit for in the beginning. As the plots slowly unfold, the battles are becoming more intense, and manage to hold the viewers’ attention.

6. D.Gray-man

Both main characters fight for the people they know and love and don’t give up, even when all limits to their abilities have been exceeded. They are accepting of everyone else and are very sensitive. In addition, there are a lot of crazy and wacky side characters who lighten up the mood of otherwise dark stories. They are both very well written, jumping between light and dark moments with a re-evaluation of whether the enemies are actually evil or just victims. The anagonists are very mysterious, yet likable characters and appear to be an unbeatable force. It is up to the protagonist and their friends to try and beat them, while they both fight with a hidden power within themselves. 

5. Buso Renkin

Description: Some things in life are so bad that you’d like to pretend they’re just a dream.

With this strange device, Kazuki gains the power of Busou Renkin — Arms Alchemy; a power that will come in handy when monsters (and worse) begin to plague his town! Kazuki soon meets the girl from his “dream” (named Tokiko) in reality, and she tells Kazuki to get on with his life; but with his sister and friends in danger, that might not be possible. Besides, if Kazuki gives up the chance to show off just how manly he can be, how can he hope to win the heart of the alluring older-sister-like Tokiko?!

In a somewhat ill advised attempt to save the girl, he ends up endangering himself and gaining unexpected powers.

These are two action series which feature major combat and internal struggle with random bits of humor thrown in.

4. Jujutsu Kaisen

Both series are about a boy who is living a regular life before an unusual encounter, after which he can see evil creatures invisible to the human eye.

3. Yu Yu Hakusho

Can Yusuke protect the human and spirit worlds and still manage to save himself in the process?

Number of Episodes: 112

Release Year: 1992 – 1994

The worlds of Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho are pretty similar. Both worlds feature a “heaven” and “hell”, and a teenage main character who can both see and fight spirits. Bleach centers around a guy who is negative towards others, but gradually gains friends he trusts and would gladly give his life for. Yusuke is quite similar in that aspect. They both gain some unworldly power and are able to become stronger at a rate that surpasses all others. Also, both main characters fight for what they believe in and will never leave anyone behind.

2. Soul Eater

Description: In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin – a human whose soul has darkened – the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister’s ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami’s son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!

Number of Episodes: 51

Release Year: 2008 – 2009

Soul Eater and Bleach revolve around the death and after life of humans while sharing many of the same motives, for instance, both tell the tale of the protagonist wielding a huge weapon that is a living spirit. Both protagonists also fight for justice, while slaying “evil” souls and protecting the innocent. Finally, Bleach and Soul Eater each have a good mix of action and drama, while keeping a flare for comedy.

1. Naruto

Description: Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage – the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he’s forged.

Number of Episodes: 220

Release Year: 2002 – 2007

Naruto and Bleach are two vastly different animes, yet at the same time they are amazingly similar. Both series are about a boy with vast powers that at times they don’t understand, looming in the background and threatening to overtake them if they don’t gain control. Though the plots start a bit slow, each soon dives head first into action through story arcs that build and affect the character development. The characters are easy to relate to, plus they all have emotions and their own uniqueness. Another trait that both share is the comedic aspect that is often present. Both are serious at the right times and full of stunning plot twists and turns. The fight scenes are amazing, full of action, and unique in every battle.
