If they aired this year as new anim00z,
how would they fair?



I honestly think One Piece would flop harder than the other two (in their early years)
because its animation is pretty much shit quality and it would be deemed as
a Fairy Tail rip-off by many.

Naruto and Bleach would do well since they're generic
enough to fit in with the shonen wave. Though to be honest both their 100+ episode
catalogs would be practically non-existent since they will fade immediately after the first half (26 episodes)
and be axed in their 52nd episode.

One Piece will generate good reception once it reaches the 50th episode
and slay the anime industry like it's doing now.

What do you think?
Discuss.

One Piece would definitely do the best of the three.

Naruto would probably get killed before Bleach.

Isn't One Piece already being added to the Adult Swim line up?

That's a really tough question. If we look at how post-2010 ''battle-manga'' anime have fared, things don't look so good. I think the two most popular are Toriko (2011, 100 episodes and ongoing) and Beelzebub (2011, 60 episodes) and a lot of people complain that their respective anime butchered the manga. Shueisha and Toei keep trying to pimp out Toriko but frankly it ain't working. Even if we look at Fairy Tail, (2009) which seems 10 times more popular than those 2, it couldn't avoid cancellation after 3 years.

That being said I think One Piece, Naruto and Bleach would still do very well if they came out now.

Though One Piece wouldn't be able to pull off the 80-100 episodes arcs like they used to, they'd still be a long-running series cause it's just too interesting and popular.

Naruto wouldn't end cause of all the merchandise they sell.

Bleach would have a similar run to Fairy Tail's.

That's what I think...

I was considering a long, elaborate answer to this question, but, unfortunately, the image that introduces this topic seems to have emptied my brain. Pass!

If naruto started now it would probably have 15 fillers every 10 episodes, so im guessing it would go to hell in a few months.

Gotta love Naruto. But its worth it, since there will be alot of awesome episodes after all those Fillers.

I personally think that Naruto will stand out the most since alot of people grew up with Naruto.

I think honestly, not being biased here or anything but:

Rank
1st: Naruto
2nd: Bleach
3rd: One Piece

Reason
Naruto starts slow, but picks up after a few episodes unlike Bleach that doesn't get interesting until around episode 20. One Piece would just fail completely.

^ That hurts bro, that really hurts...

Honestly though? I think they would have the same exact success. Although I've heard Bleach was killed by fillers so I don't know about that one. I don't think the shows would lose their appeal just because they're released at a later point in time.



I grew up with Naruto and it is definitely special to me. That show not only got me into anime but got me through some rough times. I <3 that show.

If you ask me bleach would probably be the one to be the best especially since number the manga itself is still going and the anime isn't over yet but if they aired at the same time naruto would probably get the best reputation seeing how most people enjoyed the show when it first came out. But over time One piece would just dystroy naruto while bleach would get the most attention do to the story it has.

fairy tail wasn't cancelled. It's on hiatus. Not a bleach hiatus a legitimate one.

if they had just started airing now, instead of 10 years ago, I think it'd be something like this:

Naruto would probably receive the same treatment Mushibugyo is getting. most people don't care for it, while some people like it. it might get more attention after the story picked up around the chunin exam arc, but the beginning is definitely weak.
Bleach would get some attention because the beginning of the story is actually interesting, so it would probably do about as well as it has done now.
not sure about One Piece, because I've never (and will never) see it.
