Greatest Anime of All Time
« see full list
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 anime's 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 between Ichigo and Orihime, who belong together without a doubt. This anime will have you on the edge of your seat, with loveable characters, deep background history, mighty-powerful heroes and villains, and more. Not only is this the best anime of all time, but it is indeed the greatest work of fiction to ever be in existence. Please, if you have never heard of it, or seen it, give it a chance. I'm sure you'll fall in love with it like I did. I'll even say it changed my life and has inspired me in many ways. Please, vote for this masterpiece, because it doesn't deserve to be below Death Note, Fairy Tail, One Piece, or even Naruto. Although I grew up with Dragon Ball, I still can't place even that above my beloved favorite Bleach. It will forever be number one. BLEACH FOREVER!
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 most likely the two most popular anime today, and this two gave more life to anime fandom in this generation. But since I prefer Bleach over Naruto, I put it at number nine!
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 version. I almost like the dubbed better because the voice actors casted are brilliant and is just as good as the native subbed version. Watch the series you will not regret the time spent, it's an investment well worth investing in instead of watching all the other lower tiered anime. There are only so many adjectives that can describe Bleach, it's just pure genius.
Dragon ball Z is considered the greatest action show but really its 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...
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. !
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
Wonderful series! Wish I could vote for positions (e.G. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc). There are so many wonderful series, such as Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. PLUS opinions change over time, such as Fullmetal Alchemist (the original English version) versus Brotherhood. FMA would rank very high in my book until FMAB came along. Being able to update would cool, too. The ranking is more important, though, in my humble opinion.
As for Bleach, what can I say 366 episodes and they're all great (even the filler, the non-filler is outstanding).
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.
It Has everything. First most of us believe in ghost, spirits and others. This anime explains every thing, the shinigamis, how they help souls to pass through, hollows, the reason why we can't see ghost! It's all believable, It also has epic Fights. The storyline is cool. The Characters are just off the chart. Kenpachi's Mad hunger for battle, Kurosaki Ichigo's epic powers unleashed from time to time. Rukia always being there for Ichigo, Toushiro Hitsugaya who is a kid and attained Bankai, Byakuya who has his Pride. They all are EPIC!
So, Reason enough, this anime should deserve a better place than 5th one!
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.
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.
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
Don't underestimate this storyline. It has all the makings (Action, Adventure, Comedy, Romance, Suspense, In depth character backgrounds, etc. ) to become an instant classic. Notably has influences from other animes/mangas plus books and movies but the author, Tite Kubo, mixes it so well with original ideas that it just keeps making you come back for more. A recommendation for both first time and fan of anime/manga!
Naruto is a bad show and One Piece and Dragonball are unbelievable bad in anime form. The fights dosen't flow the least and it's all around really disapointing. One Piece is disapointing because the manga captures so many details and is really welldrawn, whereas the anime is below average in animation. Bleach however, manages to capture the fights in an amazing way and have a great voice acting in comparision to others.
Bleach is absolutly the best anime ever! Its something that can really touch our hearts and can give as some good morals, especially from ichigo, who fight and every time get stronger for others without becoming arrogant. Good story, innovated and unique one, great characters I wich if they can do more episodes :(
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!
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.
Bleach is way way more mature than Dbz & One piece. The actions are awesome. All the characters are so very cool. Especially, Gin, Toshiro & Byakuya. Most of the voters are children here. But still if you haven't watched it yet you should definitely watch this. I'm sure you;ll like it.
