ive been watching yu yu hakusho recently, and i neoticed "strange" parallels between its plot and that of bleach. coincidence? hell no.

1) both kurosaki ichigo and yusuke yurameshi both died in ep 1, yusuke by saving a kids life, ichigo by stabbing himself with rukia's zanpakto and getting his powers 9he didnt really die tho, but you get waht i mean)

2) to get more training, they both go off to seperate masters with powerful spirit energy. yusuke to genkai, the most powerful psyhcic of he time, an ichigo to sandal-hat, ex captain of the 13 protection squads of sereitei.

3) they both train with them to go to a powerful event thing...yusuke to the dark tournament, and ichigo to sereitei

4) the event arc ends...three mysterious powers come... yusuke gets the three territory users, ichigo gets the modified souls. they put yusuke's and ichigo's friends through mind tests to see if they are powerful enough

5) it turns out, that yusukes and ichigo's respective masters are behind the three enemies...genkai is the master of the three territory users, and sandal-hat created the three modified souls

6) new, specialized badguys appear, each with their own unique ability. yusuke fights the territory users that want to destroy the world, ichigo wfights bounto that want to destroy sereitei

there are more im sure, but these were just off the top of my head

no i meant recca the series is pretty close to yu yu in the story initially, except for the fact that the character recca doesnt die like yusuke did in the beginning.

Anyone can make such connections that mean nothing. I could say that Eflen lied ripped off Chobits. For example:

1. A nerdy guy meets a mysterious girl.
Elfen Lied: Kouta meets Lucy on the beach naked.
Chobits: Hideki meets Chii is the ally half naked.

2. The girl has a split persoailty.
Elfen Lied: Lucky's alter ego is Nyuu
Chobits: Chii's alter ego is her sister.

3. The girl has something unquie about her.
Elfen Lied: Lucy has powers telekinetic like powers. She is considers dangerous to others
Chobits: Chii can affect other persocoms. She is considered dangerous to all persocoms.

4. The girl changes the nerdy guy's life.
Eflen Lied: Kouta meets other Diclonius and would have never met if he didn't meet lucy.
Chobits: Hideki meets people he would have never met if it wasn't for chi.

5. Her secret is exposed.
Elfen Lied: Kouta finds out that Lucy was responsible for his family's death.
Chobits: Hideki finds out that the landlord was the on responsible for making Chii.

6 Nerdy guy falls in love with the mysterious girl.
Elfen Lied: Kouta falls in love with Lucy.
Chobits: Hideki falls in love with Chii.

6. Named after the only thing they could say at first.
Elfen Lied: Lucy"s alter ego Nyu says "Nyu"
Chobits" Chii says "Chii"

I could even say the FLCL is connected with the exception of 6. Connections that mean nothing.

well ignoring connections between anime would serve no purpose either, by reocgnizing similarities and differences it may help the anime viewing community distinguish originality

I am not saying to ignore similarities. I am pointing out meaningless connections (difference from pointing out similarities).For example, saying Elfen Lied is connected to Chobits because Elfen lied ripped off Chobits is different from siplu noticing their similarities. A lot of animes share similarities to Elfen Lied and Chobits that doesn't mean they ripped each other off. Not only that but if you have seen both animes (Chobits and Elfen lied) you know that there is also an exteme difference. Also noticing similarities does always help. FLCL follows a basic plot, shares similarities to other animes and yet it is still a unique. Also a lot of the same plots are repeated over and over again. If you break down the plots of any random group of anime it still goes back to one of the basic plots. It is how the story is presented that makes it original. Though if someone can create a whole new plot for a story then that story is truly original.

i figure its more of a case of, how many storylines that don't suck are left. I mean, there has GOT to be similarities in all animes it quite simple, alot of ideas are taken, so others spin on what was already there to turn it into sumthing new. And also, id like to scold bleach for tottaly crapping out on me (ep70+). I mean, vampires?? how unoriginal is that!?!?

Exactly as Dusty said. I mean think about how many shonen series have the same similarities as Bleach and Yuyu Hakusho

gotta agree with you about the shonen thing, specifically the use of tournaments in shonen, i mean there's no end. Yu Yu has 2 tournaments, dbz has god knows how many, flame of recca is almost entirely a tournament, naurto employs a tournament early on, it just seems its a common trait of shonen's
