Oh, Bleach... will you forever be so underrated compared to trash like Death Note? People, please... This anime is what it's all about. Not some arrogant pretty boy with a God-complex like Light from Death Note, who also seems to always top the charts of the best villains as well... This anime is what opened my mind to watching others, like Naruto, Soul Eater, and so many more. Naruto and One Piece may have been around for longer, and may have sold more, but that's hardly a reason for Bleach to be down so low, when it is such a masterpiece. This show has the most humble hero, the most terrifying villain, a great storyline, wonderful amounts of sword fighting action, and some of the most heart-wrenching deaths imaginable. This show literally is one of the only animes with good FILLERS, one's that you can actually get into and not want to instantly skip (don't get me started on Naruto's pre-Shippuden fillers... ) Practically the only thing missing from Bleach is more romance, maybe ...more

I've seen so many different anime throughout my years. Dragonball Z like many was the first anime I ever watched. The second would be Rurouni Kenshin by far should be in the top 5 I'm amazed no one has picked up and loved that anime as it has an amazing story and amazing characters. But Bleach, oh Bleach you are fantastic! The story is brilliant, the characters are inspiring, it is by far the best anime I have ever watched. I've watched Death Note, Fairy Tail, One Piece, Ghost in a Shell. These are all great anime but they do not compare to the level of Bleach. I have no idea how Death Note got so high on the list, it's really not that amazing people. It is a great anime but Kens in is way better and Bleach is many times more brilliant. People please do yourselves a favor and take the time to watch Bleach in it's entirety. Hulu has every season dubbed and subbed. I've watched it subbed and dubbed. It's the only anime (OK well besides Dragonball Z) that I enjoyed the English dubbed ...more

Bleach is Naruto's greatest rival today when it comes to popularity. Whenever you find some Naruto download site, most likely, they also have Bleach download stuff. We can't say for sure if it's more popular compared to it's rival or less popular. Based on my observation, I'd say less popular. Then you might be asking why is this one notch ahead of Naruto. Well, I've seen both series and I like Bleach a lot better. My "Anime friend" told me (when I asked him for some recommendations) that he likes strong and prominent main characters, then I came to realize that I feel the same way. And probably that's the reason why I like Bleach better than Naruto. The strong main character in the series is Kurosaki Ichigo. He's got a team behind him but he's the one who takes care of the strongest villian. Unlike Uzumaki Naruto who is at times (or should I say, often) over-taken by Uchiha Sasuke. Also, when it comes to the story, I find Bleach a bit more exciting. Naruto and Bleach are ...more - olrak15

Dragon ball Z is considered the greatest action show but really it's the same ritual over and over. Either there out looking for the dragon balls or some enemy shows up that wants to kill Goku and someone someone goes to a new super sayian level. Then the next enemy just happens to be stronger than anyone. Actually I loved the show as a kid because it was easy to follow. Then I got older and I needed a show that was a little less childish. So I started watching Bleach and I loved it. One thing I love about Bleach is all the characters are different, physically and their powers. While DBZ has everyone going super sayian, in Bleach everyone has their own zanpakuto. This makes the show a lot more diverse. What I'm trying to say is a soul reapers bankai will beat giant glowing hair any day.

This show is not only my favorite anime, but one of my favorite shows period. I have been watching it for at least 5 years and I have never lost interest! This is the only show I know who has that many characters, and continually add to them, and you know who everyone is as well as their background and powers. Great underlying story, amazing powers and fighting scenes, and above all a very lovable and enjoyable main protagonist whos not whimpy, or naive, or whiny, or loud and annoying. He is a level headed person who cares for those around him. Great great show. Highly recommended. Must watch more than just a few episodes to truly start getting what it's about.

This is the best show, it should be at the top of the list. It got the whole package. Its funny, emotional, Supernatural, Actions and great story lines. Characters as awesome as well. You can actually enjoy every character there, with their pride, background and their abilities. IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THIS SHOW, I SUGGEST THAT YOU GO LOOK FOR IT NOW NOW...

Amazing story line! You just simply love everything about Bleach, all the characters are simply amazing! The story line never disappoints you since everything is so well thought out. This is an anime that you watch and are continually entertained with since you are always surprised with something even more, it is like you are learning about a whole new world. Also not to forget how you get emotionally attached to the characters, they laugh you laugh, they cry you cry. The fighting is also amazing, as the movie goes on the more epic everything gets. I am usually the pickiest person ever, I hate story lines with cliches, I like originality! I hate it when I watch something and then after I can guess what happens next. Bleach is one of a kind, I recommend it to all otakus.

When I see it first it was it 3rd last episode it was very cool then I started see the full season one and 2 it was very cool and all of us see it together then I started recoding the song and my friend thing it was cool and we all started see it and it became popular among all of us and now we all love it. It is amazing and it should be number 1 animation all over worldts funny, emotional, Supernatural, Actions and great story lines. Characters as awesome as well. You can actually enjoy every character there, with their pride, background and their abilities. IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THIS SHOW, I SUGGEST THAT YOU GO LOOK FOR IT NOW NOW... Great storylines, intense action. An excellent Anime, highly recommended.

Bleach should be amongst the top 3, if not number 1, purely because of the story and characters, the sacrifices and commitment one should show to their family and friends, to stand by each other no matter what. That something great about it. And great actions and terrific music makes it only better. One of the best. !

"Ichigo! What's the difference between a king and his horse? And I'm not talking' about kiddy, like one's an animal and one's a person, or one has two legs and one has four! Form, ability, and power! That's what's puzzling! If their form, ability and power are the same, why is it that one becomes the king and leads them into battle, while the other becomes the horse and carries the king?! There's only one answer... INSTINCT!

This guy alone is more than enough to make you obsessed with BLEACH!... Hell yeah - Bleach gives badass a new definition! M/

This is the best anime I've ever watched, it's actually what got me interested in anime. The characters are great and very diverse, the story line is gripping and always kept my attention it just got me hooked, and the fight scenes are amazing and I loved how the different characters had their own fighting style and abilities. The artwork is fantastic and how they kept coming up with designs for the characters is unbelievable. I would recommend this anime to anyone :-D.

Bleach is amazing. Ichigo the main protagonist is a great hero. He keeps getting stronger and stronger and doesn't complain about his opponents being stronger than him. From the very start Ichigo got his powers because he wanted to protect the people he loved which is truly awe inspiring.

Watching this show brings back so many memories. It has so many epic moments and I love the characters. I am so attached to this show I still have to watch it every now and then because I get withdrawals laugh out loud.

The story line is epic, they have hot characters, funny moments in the first arc and then you can watch great amvs afterwards. I mean there is so much to love about bleach but a lot of people give up on it early on because the animation is kind of bad.. But really the vibe in the beginning is amazing and I love going back to it.

Its completely awesome. It tells you the background of most of the characters. Basically it tells you why they are who they are. Zaraki Kenpachi is simple. He tells it like it is. He likes to fight so he does. What other reasons do you need? This show shows how much these characters just be themselves. What are they not supposed to do what they want to because it's different from what other people think is good? This anime shows that it's good to be different. Also if your one for a harem or one sided love then this is perfect. The author is a huge tease and gives plently of moments for the character to fall in love so when writing fanfiction its easier for the reader to see that couple. All in all its simply awesome and will hold a big spot in my heart. Go Bleach!

This is simply the best anime/manga (even though I prefer the manga), it outsteps the current popular or trending manga/anime each for a different reason, but the best thing that makes this anime pawn other anime is because of the awesome characters, every single character in Bleach even the new ones introduced are awesome and well loved, most are so hot they make me want to squeal, all are stronger than other anime characters, so I vote for Bleach. KUCHIKI BYAKUYA-SAMA for the win!

Bleach is a heart wrenching story all throughout. Just when you think thing can't be anymore complicated, another twist is added and fight scenes ensue. The music right before a badass fight scene is about to happen makes the hair on my neck stand up. A thoroughly enjoyable show. However, the comedy relief episodes, or filler episodes, drag the series longer than needed. But still a great anime.

It's all about Shunsui Kyoraku. He is the most easy going character of all time. He essentially makes this anime. Well along with Mayuri of course and lets not forget the greatest character of all time Kisuke Urahara who is as charming as he is mysterious. A flash of light in a house? Oops, all dead... Well done Urahara. And lets not forget Kenpachi, Yoruichi, Toshiro, Jushiro, and Soifon... All amazingly written characters and all uniquely powerful. Top notch story and characters. Love this one!

I love bleach. SPOILER ALERT. My favourite part is when ichigo fights with byakuya kuchiki, because he lost control over his inner hollow after a wile he already got a head start to win the fight. Then my second favourite part is when ichigo gets control over his inner hollow and locks up Aizen. But that's not all there's more!

I never thought I would like bleach so much. The first time I read the summary on Wikipedia, it led me to the first episode on bleach last year. I'm going on to my twenties soon, by the way. I loved it so much! The story plot is just amazing and in one day I could watch a dozen episodes of it. I managed to finish the whole series during my summer holidays. If I could marry Kubo, I would.

Bleach is the best anime I have ever seen!... it motivates us more than any other anime (even though Naruto would defeat it in emotional feelings ) and the characters are so awesome, each one has a unique personality which other characters don't have.. I just can't describe it all, bleach is the best!

I've watched many anime series and TO ME this is the greatest anime, the rich story, the characters, the emotion in every episode make this the complete anime series I have been looking for, the only downside for me is the spin offs buut skipping the episodes worked for me laugh out loud

If you watch it without the fillers, Bleach is a very fast, action-packed anime with excellent storyline and interspersed humor.

Some people may find the first 12-13 odd episodes a little boring, but they are used to introduce the main characters before the roller-coaster ride begins.

Really loved this anime because of great story line and overall character development. It had everything to make you laugh, cry, and keep you at the edge of your sear to anticipate what's going to happen next. I really loved it and will be considered one of the best anime out there!

Bleach should be recognized for the characters, not the storyline. The story jumps all over the place with added fillers. The enemies are limited and sometimes they spend too much time in the human-world or soul society. I think it should be ranked at 11 or lower compared to the other anime that have well-developed storylines.
