Bleach is all about the emergence of greater power.. for example, achieving bankai, transform into hollow, then aizen and his army of espadas, then surprisingly, espadas have release similar to bankai, and the unexpected 2nd release of top three espadas might be true.. power, follow by greater power, follow by even greater power, and lastly, the greatest power..


Right on the money right there. it was really good until they got to the soul society. then it was all about fighting, getting beat down, winning. then recovering, fighting, getting beat down again, winning. the same thing over and over again but in a different way.

I think the most over used plot cliche' out there is a under age youth, who is usually the smallest, most whimpy, and usually dumbest character imaginable, and is put into a situation where he is forced to be something "greater" Good example (and don't get me wrong i love the series i'm about to name) Naruto, Hitman Reborn!, Bleach(not for the simple fact that ichigo is wimpy or dumb, but he was kinda forced into the 'hero' role and is gradually made to become stronger, just keeping with the theme here) Kyou Kara Maou (because we all know THAT main character got annoying however lovable he was) umm Eyeshield (oh..that is such a good example) but the thing is, about all these repeated personalities for these main characters is you CAN'T help but love them as they stumble, struggle, and claw their way through things, because for some reason or another their personalities are attractive. And even though you want to take out a chainsaw and end their (or your own) misery, you also want to stand in your chair and hold up a banner that says 'keep it up!' I suppose this plot is over used alot because the youth can sympathize with something the character is going through (not that we all have special powers or are ninja's, but you get my point here). Whatever the point maybe or who is watching we can't help but continue to watch, if not to see what will happen and see if the underdog comes out on top!

gintama would be alot better if it had a set plot instead of random episodes, but it's still funny


yeah.. but at least gintama has alot of randomness.. but it gets a bit tiring sometimes.. so i know what you mean. i still lvoe it though. haha. but yeah.

If you really think about it there really aren't that many more original story lines. because most of them have already been taken. but the thing you can make intteresting is how the character gets there..

Oh... well anime like bleach and others that have these following are overused.

1). Sword fighting.
2). Lame ass bad guys
3). main character gets his power out of no where
4). main character in love
5). main character goes to school
6). has to do with the japanese religion.
7). saving the world or a girl... whatever the fuck.
8). Repetitive way of defeating bad guys. Example. Team Rocket
9). Bad guys who look like they got a hair job before going to battle.
10). corny humor
11). A character with poor dressing issues (naruto plz wear a real ninja suit)
12). sports anime sucks ballz
13). a good plot instead of defeating bad guys
14). nothing that has to do with "spirit power" or "level". Example. Bleach, Dragon Ball Z
15).Teaming up with enemy is old
16). Main character sees visions or whatever.

Normal boy meets girl with supernatural powers. She awakens his powers and then he just *happens* to be the most powerful new warrior on the scene in history. Then he has to go off and save her from something. Examples: Bleach, Busou Renkin, Ayakashi, the list is endless!

Also animes where the lovers end up having to fight each other. Like Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto.

Most shounen-genre animes all borrow from the same storyline. Guy gets powers, guy gets responsibility with powers, guy kicks butt and gets his own kicked, someone gets kidnapped and/or hurt during a baddie-fight, they fight some uber powerful guy, they loose.... Yeah, you get my point. Oh yeah, the harem-genre and the reverse-harem also get a special mention, where a gaggle of girls and/OR boys get attracted to the main character, even if he/she is useless and pathetic...
