There is a lot of fighting in both stories. In Bleach every shinigami has his/her typical zanpaktou technique, the same goes for Claymore (but with swords). In both stories the characters fighting against some kind of evil creature (in Bleach: hollow; in Claymore: youma). The main characters (Ichigo (Bleach) and Clare (Claymore)) are similar in that they want to became stronger for some reason (in Bleach Ichigo wants to become stronger to protect his friends; in Claymore Clare wants to become stronger for the sake of her revenge).
These two manga's just got a lot in common on a lot of points. Both are based on sword fighting, and in both manga's there are two sides fighting eachother. The warriors are leaded by an organization and get numbers which stand for their strenght. If you liked Bleach, Claymore is a MUST read.
They're both shonens with characters who fight a lot with monsters who only be seen or found by these particular characters, both have fighting with swords although bleach's fights drag on forever and are very repetitive while claymore's are interesting, and full of good action and actually END, not to mention the art is better, read bleach before claymore :)
Fighting against ghost and more specifically sword fighting is the theme that these manga have in common. They both Center around people who's mission it is to kill 'wandering ghost' (or something like that) to send them to the afterlife. The battles are mainly sword battles. If you like action stories with a good story behind them, then you should give both of these manga a try.
Both are about an organization (soul society/the organization) that dispatches its warriors (shinigami/claymores) to eleminate a certain type of monsters that used to be hunman (hollows/yoma) using special types of swords (zanpakuto/claymore) where each warrior has a unique style of swordmanship. The main protagonist in each manga has forsaken part of their normal humanoid form to gain power to (protect/avenge) those important to them. The main antagonists used to belong to the side of the protagonists.
They're both about a group of sword wielding warriors with super powers who have to hunt down man eating monsters. Also in both shows the main protagonist has a dark side and he/she struggles to controll it.
Shinigamis, Delinquents, traveling into another world, lots of fighting.
Bleach have many reference to Yu Yu Hakusho, mainly in Lost Agent arc (for example at the beginning of this arc Yuzu have Keiko's first hairstyle :O)
A boy has a supernatural experience and grow special powers. He come in contact with a organization that control the transit of soul between one world and another and protect the earth from the evil souls that attack it. The boy ends helping this organization to protect his friends.
The stories of both "Bleach" and "Yu Yu Hakusho" are about a teenage boy who finds himself involved with the world of spirits. He and his friends, who also have supernatural abilities, are forced to come together to fight the evil forces that pose a threat to both worlds. Both have a plenty of action, but "Yu Yu Hakusho" eventually develops into a slightly more complex story where themes like moral ambiguity start to come into play.
Like Naruto, Bleach has very deep and compelling characters as well as action packed battles that will keep you on your toes. Very deep yet simple plots, both are masterpieces in their own right, and deserving of such a title.
there both about frindship with some twists of love that u get to imagen urself. also there fights r about just as long -_- n they both need something to spice it up again, i hope they figer out what it needs soon^-^
If you love the shonene hit of naruto, you will love bleach. bleach has the same suspense and action except in a different way. The plot arcs always have so many complicated plot twists and conspiracy theories just like naruto. READ IT
Both manga center around characters that got their power from another source (not themselves). They have to become stronger in order to develop this power to the fullest. They also want to make the world a better place and become the best at what they do. If you like action packed manga with stunning and beautiful battles, then you should read these manga.
if you love the action and suspense of bleach, you will love one piece. The manga is has the same suspense, action, adventure and intense-ness of bleach except in a different way. In each plot arc there is always conspiracy theories and really complicated plot twists just like bleach. READ IT
Top-notch (at least best-selling) shounen jump manga that epitomizes the concept of friendship, love, self-sacrifice, coming-of-age, amidst action-packed volumes.
Bleach is about death god (shinagami), while One Piece is about pirates.
Both main characters are incredibly strong and aim to become the strongest in the world. But they could never do it alone, that's why they need all their friends in order to help them. Friendship is really important in both of these manga. Apart from that you will also get: action packed chapters, incredible powers and some of the best humour out there!
Zombie Powder was Tite Kubo's first manga serial, which he started working on in high school. It was cancelled after only a year, but reading it, you have to wonder why. All of the incredibly stylish art and character design that make BLEACH so great are also in great supply in Zombie Powder. It's got fantastic battles, a supremely cool cast of characters, and is all in all something that every BLEACH fan should read.
And if you've somehow managed to read Zombie Powder without first hearing of BLEACH, do by all means start on the latter! xD BLEACH's length almost makes up for how abruptly ZP was cut short. read more
The most popular of Tite Kubo's two manga creations (Zombie Powder being the first) but in reading his previous manga, you can clearly see how he perfected his incredible art style, as well as awesome character design for Bleach. I actually started reading Bleach first and read ZP afterwards, and you can clearly see that there are similarities between the two manga, however, some might not be as apparent as others. Both mangas have amazingly detailed battle scenes, the super-cool characters (that are vital for a good manga) and the superb plot line that ties the whole thing together. First published in 2001 and still going strong - the length of this manga makes up for any disappointment at the abruptness of Zombie Powder's end.  read more
Because these series are from the same author/artist, they both deal with similar style, characters, situations and development, the plot's are different and the looks of the characters. But for the rest, they are pretty much the same.
While reading Zombie Powder you can see the origins of Bleach. Characters' design, personalities, battles... everything is similar. Also, there is the "inside power" of the protagonist that they have to control.
Badass fights and some great sense of humour, this is what turned bleach is one of the most popular manga. But wait it is not the only manga that has these features. Meet zombie powder. Another story with characters with unique powers thqt embark on a journey that seems impossible to accomplish. Some of the most epic battles you will ever see await you! Is that it? No! Apart from that it has the exact same humour that made bleach so enjoyable for me. So,if you liked the humour in one of these manga, than be sure to check the other one out as well!
King of Hell has some similarities from Bleach for one that Majeh role in the manhwa is similar to a shinigami's where he has to ferry dead souls to the other side. Instead of Majeh fighting against hollows, most of his enemy's in the manhwa are comprised of demons that have escape to the living world.
These two series offers tons of fighting which also includes sword fighting and uses of spells.
If you're looking for a good supernatural series to read, I recommend checking out both King of Hell and Bleach.
If you enjoy reading Bleach for its great action, adventure, and tons of fighting then you’ll enjoy King of Hell (AKA Majeh in Korea). Both series main characters fight off against paranormal beings of various strengths and great power in order to protect the world of the living and the after life.
Both deal with supernatural powers. Bleach's author, Kubo Tite, considers Saint Seiya to be one of his biggest inspirations for the designs of the different types of weapons that his characters use in the story as well as the battle scenes.
Endless fighting, Each Character has uniqe zanpakuto/cloth, Similar approach on story, at some point it even has some kind of similar setting.
Saint Seiya inspired Tite Kubo into being a mangaka. MUST watch for any Bleach fan.
Blue Exorcist is a pretty similar concept to Bleach - purging darkness and evil, but sympathetically. They're both dramatic and comic, with pretty different main characters, but equal in their drive to do what they do, and rather uncontrollable [but hardly knowingly skilful] strength.
Bleach and Ga-rei share a very similar aesthetic in regard to both narrative and character design. Both revolve around the constant battle between exorcists/shinigami and the evil spirits that they cross paths with.
Male leads can see spirits that other people can't see. This ability causes them to be involved in a supernatural world, and eventually both characters become sword-wielding bad-ass who fights in order to save the world.
They both have the same kind of nice, unique art, also the "bad guys" in Psyren resemble the bad guys in Bleach.
Both are also Shonen Jump mangas with a lot of action and characters that travel between worlds fighting bad guys.
If you like Bleach, you'll love Psyren.
Both characters get caught in a situation where they have to fight in order to survive. The stories both feature some sort of supernatural world with a lot of super cool and unique powers. Both of them contain a lot of action and fighting scenes. If you like these kind of mangas, then you should try these manga out.
Despite the different style of their storytelling, Bleach and Kyoukai no Rinne shares some similarity especially revolving their supernatural concepts. In particular, the main protagonist of both series gains the abilities to see things that normal people cannot. They also deal with events revolving around the afterlife with the help of other characters. Bleach follows more of a story with arcs divided throughout its stories that connects the premise together. Kyoukai no Rinne has a more of slice of life tone although there are also ongoing stories that revolves around the premise.
These two manga have very similar feeling story arcs at least in pattern, though one is about the mafia and the other is about shinigami they both have the same battle manga mantra of "must get stronger" etc.
While Bleach may contain a lot of "supernatural" elements and Gamaran not, in both you will find a lot of action and sword fights. In Gamaran, you will not only find Katanas but many different swords, in Bleach you'll find different forms of Zanpakutous.
Both of the main characters gain powers that they had never had before, as well as having a very similar female character to assist them both. Believe it or not, both anime surround the idea about the meaning of friendship. Also both of the main character use humongous swords due to the extreme power they hold in within themselves.
Both are about a guy that gets supernatural powers because a girl. It's based on the typical shonen morality (to protect the world, to not kill the enemies...), both have weapons that evolve and the battles are carried in a similar way. Also, the school group comedy is very similar.
Firstly, both are shounen mangas with a lots of actions and humor. (Bleach have more actions though) Both manga contain akuma or hollow like spiritual creatures. But Bleach revolves around shinigamis and DGM revolves around exorcists. They have similar fighting style too. In Bleach they use "Zanpaktou" and in DGM they use "Innocence" to fight against these spiritual creatures. And both MC have some unusual power (More like hybrid) which is different from rest of the others. So, if you like Bleach you will like DGM too.
If you like bleach you will like this. Bleach is heavily inspired by Samurai deeper kyo. Sometimes it almost feels like bleach is copying Samurai Deeper Kyo. Alot of characters with swords and powers fighting with flashy techniques etc.
But there is a big diffrence. Samurai Deeper kyo has more of a story and its more mature. And the main character is not the good guy but rather the bad guy. He dont spare peopoles life, he kills them and smile.
In both series which involves sword fights, instead of working on their swordsmanship to get stronger, characters rely on greater power. (e.g. Bleach= saigo no getsuga tenshō, Kyo=Mibu techniques)
Both also have girls that only spectate and shout out of names, basically helpless and useless. KYA KYA KUROSAKI-KYUUUUUUUN
These two stories are almost identical. When i started reading BLAST I felt like I was reading bleach all over again. Everybody knows about Bleach, and even thought BLAST is VERY similar, I think it needs more attention. Think of it as a Korean version of Bleach, but BLAST is much shorter!
So, if you liked Bleach you'll like BLAST and vice versa ^^
Both are long series that feature a lot of fighting scenes where each character has their own special attacks. Also both main characters keep improving their weapons/powers with new more and more powerful attack moves. Both also involve the main character facing off against more or less supernatural beings, although in InuYasha it's often youkai (demons) and in Bleach humans with inhuman powers. Also it seems like no matter how brutally you beat up our male leads Ichigo (Bleach) and Inuyasha (InuYasha) neither seems willing to die anytime soon.
The series are both shounen and have a similar premise. Both the protagonists keep facing stronger enemies while trying to find a way to surpass them. The series also have impressive fight scenes; Bleach with swords and Dragon Ball with fists and energy. If you enjoy watching the main character grow throughout the series you'll probably like both of the manga.
If you like stories with thrilling sword fighting and a dark backstory involving the human soul. Then I'm pretty sure you will like both of these manga. They both involve this dark backstory and stunning sword battles.
The "atmosphere" is a bit different, but there are a lot of similarities. To begin with, the artwork has a very similar feel as well as the similar starting point of "boy meets girl and obtains power" kind of deal
Altough Rebirth Knight is a new series, it has a similar feeling to Bleach. How?
First of all similar main protagonists, Kang Chan is impulsive and quick to anger just like Ichigo used to be during the beginning of Bleach.
Also they have similar reasons to aquire power; to protect the ones they care about. Ichigo wanted the power to protect his family while Kang Chan wants to protect the girl he likes (love is a strong word for now).
Supporting female characters also have similar personalities.
I don't know how Rebirth Knight is going to develop but for now, its a good alternative to Bleach. And it will be interesting to see how the story will develop from there. read more
Well...Kekkaishi isnt about shinigami and swordfighting but the manga has the same feel to it...a boy in black Bleach-like clothing fights against weird monsters...(like the main protagonist in Bleach)...he gets stronger and stronger, tries to defend THE GIRL who also happens to be very similar to the main female character in Bleach.
There is a secret society (very soul societys like)...and there is the evil group...
Sooo...all in all...very similar yet different.
P.s. Kekkaishi is in my opinion the tame version of Bleach.
Imagine Bleach never had the Karakura Town kids go to Soul Society and instead Ichigo fought hollows. You might have something like Kekkaishi, a series that has the same feel of the early chapters of Bleach. Kekkaishi is surprisingly deep for a shōnen manga (something Bleach goes in and out of) and focuses on it's protagonist much more than Bleach does.
Both have extremely similar art styles and are urban fantasy series with humorous moments and epic fight scenes, though Noblesse is a Korean Webtoon, so it is in a long, scrolling format and in color, while Bleach is a Japanese manga, so it's black and white and in page format.
If in Bleach you replace spirits, shinigami and hollows with vampires, werewolves and experimentally enhanced humans, you essentially get something like Noblesse, and visa versa. While both are different in many ways, including the elements of science-fiction in Noblesse, and the focus on a (more-or-less) human protagonist in Bleach, fans of both series will recognize things they love in the other. read more
In some way, Oresama Teacher and the first volumes of Bleach are similiar. Both have a pretty random humor and they are both in a way about delinquents. Oresama Teacher is a shoujo, but the way its not claustrophobicaly focused on the maincharacters, and the way of storytelling, is pretty similar to a shounen.
Also, both series have a lot of hilarious characters... and bunnies.
There is an organization of beautiful (most of them) and honorable warriors who protect humanity from evil who want to destroy/conquer it (Hollows in Bleach and "spoilers" in Saint Seiya). Each of them has unique zanpakuto/cloth that give them special abilities and strongest of them have incredibly powerful bankai like attacks that can destroy weakest opponents in a blink of an eye. Harsh battles and amazing art awaits you.
Samurai theme. Main character dressed as shinigami and acts like Kurosaki Isshin in a way. Special weapons with unique powers, some of them better than others. One of the villains are just screams Bleach for me. And in both MC doesn't give a damn about sneaking and just bursting through the front door.
Bleach and Soul Cathcher(S), both are about guys who can see things, that other people can't and both aren't really happy about that. Art sometimes looks almost identical, except maybe hair. In Bleach it looks a little more windy, while in Soul Catcher(S) it looks more like a mosaic. Both trying to be really epic, in terms of atmosphere of the "battle".
A boy is able to see spirits because of a traumatic event that resulted in the death of someone they were close to when he was a child. As a high school student, he's a problem child, but one day, a girl suddenly appears in his room to kill a spirit. In the way to kill the spirit, something happens which causes the girl to awaken his hidden powers to be able to kill spirits.
Differences: Bleach is about ghosts and grim reapers, Doll's Folklore is about monsters born from emotion and people who just have special powers.
Bleach is about a living guy that helps the dead.
Genkaku Picasso is about a dead guy that helps the living!
There are some things that the Bleach fans might find rejecting at first sight about GP. GP is drawn in a style a bit like shojo, although it's shonen. Also, it's a bit weak at first. But when you get into it, it's a really good shonen manga. In the third and final volume everything is put together and you see the whole picture (pun, hehe) and that's when the manga reaches it's highest level.
Both have over the top cute girls design, character that loves to slap each other in da face and mangakas who never remove sunglasses. FT is a bit power up heavy, but if it doesn't bother you, it could become your second favorite.
Bleach and Kuroko no Basuke have a lot of similarities, even thought they pretty different in concept. Both of them have some sort of supernatural elements, every character have his own uniqe ability and it all filled with similar type of humor. Some characters personalities and even their design sometimes looks really alike. Both features bishonens, so if you read it solely for pretty boys, you won't be disapointed.
Sword fighting within a school setting. Main characters have something in common too (if you read enough of Bleach, then you'll notice it from the 1st chapter). Zan is the 3rd (well.. actually 4th) manga, where i like pretty much all of the cast.
Starts out with the hero gaining a super power to help fight off an infestation of monsters from "The Shadow World"/"Hueco Mundo"
Both recruit an assortment of other super power guys from their close friends at high school
Both have about a 5-10 man group of heroes fighting a 5-10 group of bad guys in a series of battles
Bleach is higher quality, but monochrome doesn't completely change its storyline every couple seasons.
Apart from the art style, which I find quite similar, these manga also start almost in the same manner: a rather normal guy (Ichigo/Arty) suddenly stumbles across a strange, and due to her looks apparently harmless girl (Rukia/Tista) while she's doing her dangerous job: respectively a soul reaper & a murderer. After that, the two become ineluctably linked.
While Bleach is an extremely long supernatural shounen manga, Tista is more mature, much shorter, and mainly focused on gunfights and psychological drama.
Both series are about a relatively ordinary boy who, after a supernatural encounter that leaves him playing proxy for an otherworldly entity, demonstrates tremendous innate ability at and enthusiasm for his new job.
Bleach is simular to Pandora hearts in that they have simular elements to them, yet these elements are put into place in the story line in completly different ways, making them two completly different stories with simular vibes.
A honest good guy with a special talent meets a supernatural girl, and they end up teaming up to fighting against an evil force from another plane of existence that threatens the human world. Very different but surprisingly similar.
Both samurai sword tales but set for different audiences. Bleach features more colorful characters, more humor, and supernatural powers to add to the sword figting. Vagabond has a more adult storyline, richer character development, and much more detailed artwork. If you like Bleach but find it to be a little young for you, Vagabond is definitely where you should go.
Note that Vagabond is a monthly manga, though. So the storyline may move slower than the weekly chapters for Bleach.
it may seems like a pretty bizarre recommendation and i don't know what to mention besides a similar genres, but both Yoshihiro Togashi and Tite Kubo was heavily inspired by Masami Kurumada's Saint Seiya and it's clearly shows. they both feels really similar, but without copying eachother.
also, both have guys whos clan was wiped out, but character from Bleach don't give a crack about this, while character from HxH seeking for revenge.
Not only is the shingami concept in both, we have a character that looks simular, the brother, and Ichimaru Gin from Bleach. The artist for the newer peice, was likely influenced by Bleach in some ways.
it is similar since they areabout some1 that was at school and he stil is going to it but he fights agenst a orginasation who wants to kill him or defeat him in combat while this they use fists and bleach they use swords ithik any1 who read/watched bleach will like this
Both involve an individual who has to fight off hordes of monsters with an enormous sword while fighting for others. Both protagonists also have groups that develop over time and both their groups began with a male and female protagonist. They're also both very action oriented however Berserk is much darker.
At the first sight, both series have very little in common. But if you have read one of them and got into it, you'll get a feeling of many similarities while reading the other one. In both of them there are strange creatures and supernatural phenomena. The main protagonist is a character bound to two different worlds and as the story develops, they encounter more and more serious opponents and they try as hell to get stronger in order to protect what's important to them. Plus, both series employ some traditional Japanese beliefs.
This similarity wasn't something I would've suspected at first. However, half way through the story of Togari, Tobe's form of transformation is almost exactly like Ichigo's Hollow self, which made be look back on both manga. I've realized that both main characters are about someone who works for the "other world", whether they really want to or not. Both are fought with swords, with power level rising on occasions where the main character is pushed back against the corner. Togari is slightly darker though.
Bleach and XBlade are both stories that involve extraordinary battles, characters, and swords too. Both of the protaganists weild swords of great power and have similar qualities such as transforming into supernatural beings. Although XBlade's chapters are onwards of 50+ pages, a lot of fun will be had reading either series.
both featured a tough guy who meets girl from another world and after that gets a supernatural powers. through the story he meets a new friends which also very similar like horny lion or a shy girl who love the main character. sometimes even story will make you say "wow! this is just like Bleach! :D" but with all this similarities Beelzebub feels more like a comedy then a fighting manga.
