The only aspects of Bleach that surpass Naruto in epicness were the moments when Ichigo's mask would randomly appear and r4pe anyone he was battling at the time. After the stupid visard(sp?) arc and the permanent mask appeared, he seemed weaker to me. One thing about Bleach that is MUCH better than Naruto by far, I will say, is the strength of the females. The kunoichi of Naruto (in a whole) are so weak compared to the male characters it's pathetic. Sakura should be much stronger than she is. But overall, Naruto has better fights, better background stories, better antagonists and just it's basically better than Bleach.
