I'm wondering how Bleach at least stacks up to Naruto in general. I'm starting off watching the Japanese episodes. I've already gotten my hands on episodes 1-50, and am currently obtaining episodes 51-100, and so on. I'm mainly giving Bleach a serious look at due to some fight clips I saw via YouTube. I thought it looked interesting and a bit fun, somewhat...DBZ-ish, if only a little.
I'm starting off with the Japanese anime, not the manga. I'll probably begin reading the manga itself once I've reached the last released anime episode, so please don't mention any spoilers here for me.
One of the reasons I'm also giving Bleach a look at, is because I'm actually a bit bored with Naruto. I've loved the series from the start, but, I'm just really impatient. Yes, I'm sure it's quite a lot of hard work, releasing 18 minute Shippuuden episodes, and 15-18 page manga chapters on a weekly basis. But I get bored easily, so I'm willing to check out Bleach. And it seems I have a ton to catch up on.
Um, and also, Naruto is really beginning to get stale for me. =\
You gotta start watching from the beginning but it's worth it or reading but the anime is very good too and the GOOD GUYS ACTUALLY LOSE and the plot isn't as bad as in naruto give a whirl it's nice you will like it.
The main characters well overall main are shinigami who wield what they call soul slayers in english each having abilities shikai and bankai.
Shikai is the first release fo the sword which makes it appear differently then just a plain katana bankai is the highest stage of your soul slayer and is very hard to attain for many some have better bankai's then other while some shikai's such as the captains head shinigami and aizen biggest bad ass in the seires/villain their shikai are better then every bankai at least in my opinion because of their ability.
Captains- shikai looks like a giant phoenix fire very powerful
Aizen- shikai is like a genjutsu called Kyoko suigestu even though having a water name kyoko suigestu casts an unbreakable illusion much more poweful then genujutsu seen in naruti tsukuyomi included not frog genjutsu though lol.
As for these 2 guys bankia they haven't been revealed yet but most likley pwn all.
Give it a try the combat is very nice animations are always good to anf filers don't suck like naruto's.
Overall a good watch /read.
