Well those are interesting connections. Yeah I've seen both series but the similarities didn't click on me until explained here. It may just be mere coincidence or it's just that shonen series follow a distinct pattern or schematics.

Saying this about shounen action animes is like saying all romance movies are the same because a guy meets a girl.

^^ I'm not saying they're "the same" but they're intertextual as a function. In this day and age, nothing really is defined as "original". "Originality" does not mean creating something out of nothing, but simply making an interesting change in what has been done before you. Such changes is implied in comparing Yu-Yu Hakusho and Bleach. Sure it may seem the same but their functions are greatly different.

^ I just posted because its within the cut-off when I saw it.

Indeed..most animes have their similarities. Most ideas have been recycled..there doesn't seem to be any full proof original ideas anymore.

i thought bleach ripped off Dragonball Z / One Piece as well

1. Every main shinigami has Bankai, Every main saiyan has SSJ, Every main pirate eats a Devil's Fruit

2.(leave bleach out) Both strongest, mainest charactor is goofy and eats alot

3.(leave OP out) Bleach has that bankai place, DBZ has the time chamber

4.(leave OP out) Hitsugaya and SSJ 2 Gohan look so much alike

theres more, but i dont feel like thinking

The mangaka of Yu Yu Hakusho also did HunterxHunter, and anyone who has seen HxH can draw immediate parallels to Naruto (and HxH came first, mind you). It's great anime, but the manga was, unfortunately, left unfinished. ;_;

But most shounen shows can be found to have similiarities with others. If you really think about it, everything is plagerized off everything else. We can't really go back and say "this is the original, everything else is a cheap imitation." Besides, there isn't anything wrong with a knock-off is there? A truly great plot can be used over and over and never get old.

Besides, I like shounen shows because I always get ridiculously happy over the power-ups and new moves the main character gets... XD

Yes, Bleach is a total rip off of other animes. It’s not original at all. Another thing you might note about Yu Yu Hakisho and Bleach is that they both have some kind of society for dead souls and warriors and spirits and demons/hollows ext.

Even the characterization in Bleach is based on basic anime clichés. For example: Odahemai. Super smart but also lacking in common sense, ridiculously big breast, taste for chimera foods, never gains weight, twitter-patted cutie pie. That giant guy: Silent warrior with a sad past. The guy with the bow: Competitive rival with strikingly similar personality traits as the main character that he shows in another way. Sad past. Last of his people. Blessed with the natural abilities of his people. (He’s the Bleach parallel to Naruto’s Sasuke.)

I’ve always hated that show. I saw a couple episodes and kind of liked those but I quickly realized that there was nothing special about this anime. It wasn’t in any way special, but rather redundant. At best it’s average. I think it’s horrible because I hate the plot and the characters. Plus, the love interest chick is ugly. Rukia? Well, she’s ugly. Looks like a dude.

Its not that suprissing at all. The once widely famed dragonballz was quite similar. Most animes with such action, have a relatively similar plot. Its just tweeking that makes people unaware or not even care.

I think Bleach is more similar to Busou Renkin.

both main character dies in ep 1
the main character's sister got caught by some huge unknown monster.
the girl who is alchemic warrior/shinigami saves the boy and gives him the power to fight these monsters.
after it the main character becomes a shinigami/alchemic warrior to defend his classmates and family.
both main character have unbelievable fighting will power, when about to die they will get so strong.
they have a fast learning mind.
they will be trained.
they will fight enemies that eventually will become their allies.
and so on ETC>
there might be more.. dunno
