It's one of the most popular shonen anime of all time, but what other similar shows are worth watching? Here are 20+ anime like Bleach, along with explanations of what makes them similar. Bleach is a story that follows teenager Ichigo Kurosaki after he becomes accidentally embroiled in a supernatural battle, and then gains powers of soul reaper. There are hundreds of episodes, and while it's a very riveting and exciting anime, there are many similar to it that are definitely worth your time. Some of these shows involve concepts about enforcers from the afterlife and collectors of human souls called shinigami. For an older anime that you might like, Yuyu Hakusho is very similar to Bleach, as both shows involve a group of fighters with special abilities, and a setting of heaven and the underworld. Soul Eater is a newer series that has similarities to Bleach, with both series involving demons, the afterlife, and more.
