Bleach, Shakugan no Shana Recommendations
Both male leads meet mysterious girls who have knowledge of things beyond the normal world. Flame Hazes are basically Shinigami and Torches are similar to ghosts.
Both is about the fight against the underworld of some sort, and the main characters both weild swords the plot is also similar in certain aspects, i'd recommed you watch it for yourself :), much more fun than for me to write spoils here ;).
Both anime have beings that eat human souls (Hollows in Bleach, Tomogara in Shakugan no Shana) and the humans/pseudo-humans that fight them (Shinigami in Bleach, Flame Haze in Shakugan no Shana). Both are also centered on a human that can see/fight these beings.
There is a lot of action in both animes, and both can be funny at times. Shakugan No Shana has more of a romance/harem theme though.
Bleach and Shakugan no Shana are similar because the main character meets a mysterious girls with mysterious powers. Some of the differences are there is romance in Shakugan no Shana unlike in bleach which is mainly about the action.
Both main male characters meet mysterious girls with abilities beyond human knowledge. Also both male characters become more stronger and powerful during the story line. However Bleach doesn't have any romance or anything like that but Shakugan no Shana has a hint of romance in it.
Of all the anime I've watched so far, I feel that Shakugan no Shana is most similar to Bleach. The first few episode of both anime start out in the same way; A seemingly normal boy meets a girl from another world of some sort and the life of the boy is changed forever. Both anime focus on action, however, Shakugan no Shana also seems to focus on romance more than Bleach ever did. Personally, I don't care much for romance, especially in an anime that focuses so much on action. However, I feel that the element of romance helped Shakugan no Shana's story in
