    Similarities between Bleach & Yu Yu Hakusho..

    I'm pretty new to Bleach so I'm not too far in the anime. I'm up to episode 60 but I did skip a lot of the boring episodes. I don't know if it's just me or if everyone thiks this too, but I think Yu Yu Hakusho and Bleach have some episodes that are similar. Today I watched Bleach, it was the one with the 3 Modsouls and when they finally took Kon with them on something. In Bleach, Urahara made 3 modsouls teach Ichigo, his team and Renji a lesson by setting them up to solve the problem because the modsouls kidnap Horihime. In Yu Yu Hakusho they do something very similar and they kidnap Kuwabara. Then in both anime, they have someone transform into Horihime and Kuwabara, then they have to guess who the fake one is. In the end, they find out who it is, then Urahara and Genkai tells them that they did it to teach them a lesson.

    Another similarity is that they both use SPIRITUAL energy, how weird....

    Now I think that is just weird... Do you guys think one of them stole the idea from the other? Or do you think it was just a councidence? Tell me what you think!

    Also, that occurrence which you are talking about is filler. It's not canon. The three Modsouls are anime-only characters. Perhaps the anime team took some inspiration from Yu Yu Hakusho, but Bleach of itself does not.
    Really? Well I guess the anime with spiritual energy are anime I don't watch.
    Oh, I didn't know it was a filler... Well thanks..

    Well the stuff you listed seems kinda general Shounenish, and yeah the whole Mod Soul thing was filler.

    There ARE a lot of similarities between it though. The whole Spirit Detective/Soul Reaper circumstances are very comparable, and in particular Yusuke and Ichigo are very similar protagonists, particularly in the outset but this does carry over a bit as things go on, just not as much. The setting itself is pretty similar for at least the early portions of the two series. Overall I'd say Yu Yu Hakusho is a MUCH better series though. Soul Society arc was easily comparable to YYH quality but everything after that descended into mindless action while Yu Yu Hakusho delved further into the psychology behind the whole Spirit Detective developments and such while Ichigo's character development pretty much stopped.
