Naruto and Bleach both synomonous with action animes. when you hear bleach the next anime that you would think of would be naruto... if you like it that is. they both are epic anime with outstanding character devlopement and plots so intricate you might would who were the brillant minds to think of this (I did anyway...) also there is some comic relief, a little bit of romance, and tons of serious parts too. and they're great for anyone

Both have awesome characters and fights, and even humor sprinkled throughout. If you enjoy Naruto or Naruto Shippuuden there should be no reason you cant also enjoy Bleach.

Very similar in format, though different stylistically -- Naruto is set in 'past times' where Bleach is set in 'modern times' Both feature a strong cast of lead characters with seemingly limitless (possibly dangerous) potential.

Differences to be seen are Naruto's goals are clearly defined.
1. To become Hokage (to protect the village)
2. Protect his friends.
(Overall theme of Protecting people, his 'evil aspect' seems to be kept seperate from himself character until it consumes him.)
Where Ichigo's goals are not so clear,
1.Protect his friends.
2. Ichigo however seems to have a hidden side that constantly strives to   read more

The genres are quite alike, and they are universes where fighting is necessary for survival. Where Naruto is more about emotions and the craft of a fictive universe, Bleach presents more extreme fighting scenes with a stench of Dragon Ball in it. Both are great animes. They also both are ongoing long anime series.

Both are "mainstream" animes, popular not just in North America, but worldwide. They're both shounen anime, so you can expect a lot of action and fighting. If you like one series, there shouldn't be any reason for you to hate the other. What matters in shounen series are the quality of the action and fight scenes, and both provide lots with seemingly no end to be seen.

It's similar mostly in the age, both rating and the age of the characters. That's my opinion, but I love these 2 series and I recommend you watch them : )

Both are very popular shounen which almost everyone has seen. The difference is just that Bleach is about death gods when Naruto is about ninjas.

Both series are widely known as the long-action-shounen. The main attraction in both is the long story, with the resolves almost always being in fights. With both including superpower characters and the main leads becoming stronger and stronger through time, they both take us on a classic shounen battle ride.

I feel like these are similar animes because besides being a long series, Naruto and Ichigo both try to work for the common good in vanquishing the evil antagonists that come their way while fighting for their friends. I know, this theme is practically the same for almost any anime but when I watch these two, I feel like they have a similarity aura. Not to mention they both have awesome epic fights! >:D

Both shows being considered the stereotypical anime that's all newbies tend to get drawn to early on, both of the shows have similar protagonists, young males who as the series develops grows stronger, gains friends, and is entrusted with more responsibility. Also both of the shows follow very similar story lines with a prologue to a big battle where the enemy is introduced with episodes leading up to the big fight with filler episodes in between. People new to the anim scene should check out these anime.

Both of these anime are consumed by filler and really popular.

Both are action orientated, with you normal good vs evil set up, both protagonists are very similar all that really separates them is their hair color and their homosexual attachment to a certain Uchiha.

The main characters have the same "fight to protect" mentality and "special modes"(hollow and the kyuubi). Both feature vast universes and characters. The authors put in a bit of romance(esp. live triangles) but didn't delve to deep so it doesn't get too cheesy.

Let's start by comparing the story, both have similar shounen elements of that fighting spirit; Bleach = spiritual energy and Naruto = chakra. The Story's main protagonist seeks to become stronger after each encounter to protect their families (although in the beginning Naruto's motive is to not be seen as an outcast) The development of the protagonist is conveyed in a simple formula of finding that inner strength to overcome their opponent (speaking which both suffer inner demons to which they must also struggle against and control to unleash their full potential), however this simple formula is made entertaining by the interactions with a long   read more

Both anime's main character start with weak fighting power but stubborn personality and both of them never give up. So in time they power up and be invincible.

The main characters of both shows, Ichigo and Naruto, are quite similar in terms of personality. They are both brash, energetic teenagers who keep a tough exterior, but have a kind heart. Both shows have the main character train to become stronger and protect his friends. They also show a war between two sides, fought using supernatural abilities. Overall, these anime have similar art and animation, a lot of action and similar comedy, a large cast of characters, a similar plot and an overall similar vibe.

Both are based on Shonen Jump Manga. but the greatest similairity are the fillers, both shows have such an insane high amount of fillers you get aids of just looking at an episode list. both shows are awesome though but the high filler amount makes them both infamous and ruïns the potential which the both have

Naruto is an action shounen fighting anime which is most likely to be favourites for the majority of anime lovers.Like Bleach which is very similar to Naruto but Bleach has more fighting and action moments than Naruto.If you like action and fighting anime like Naruto then Bleach is the perfect anime for you

Although bleach as less death, both of these animes are good. Bleach as good fighting scene with some overpowered ennemies. In both anime, the main characters has to increase his powers and abilities to beat his ennemies and they are often in bad situations risking their lives for the sake of the people they care about. Just like I said before, the fighting scenes are damn good, but you'll have to make some research about the main episodes/arcs if you don't want to see alot of fillers. In my opinion this is the only bad thing about these animes.

First of all i want to say something about Bleach,we got such good and interesting plot here,the guy eho want to protect his own friends and family at all costs,step by step every enemy got defeated by good guys(what is logical for 99% animes),he gain all that power in every 20-50eps,happy ending as always.Naruto...Naruto has gained power of Nine tails,what he will be able to use in next generation,he want to protect all his friends from Leaf village,and more than that,just like Ichigo in Bleach.
So on the end,we can say both of them will give us good message about friendship and to never be   read more

Great power with in both Ichigo and Naruto, but both are blockheads with little skill at the start so they have to uncover there power through strife. Great watching the uncontrolled power go to work.
