10 Anime Characters Who Would Do Better In Bleach
Bleach is an extremely popular shonen fantasy series set in a world that revolves around the supernatural and the afterlife. In Bleach, it is the duty of the black-robed Soul Reapers to escort the souls of the waiting dead from the afterlife, but they must also defeat the evil souls called Hollows in battle. It’s never an easy job.
That said, there are more than a few anime characters that would do well in the Bleach universe, mostly as a Soul Reaper, or as a Quincy or Hollow-hunting archer. These characters have the right skills and combat techniques to thrive Bleach‘s, and they would certainly enjoy their time in this shonen universe.
ten Arthur Boyle Could Become Every Soul’s Knight King (Fire Force)
Firefighter Arthur Boyle belongs to Company 8, but he is not well liked there. Most of the other firefighters either mock him or eclipse him as a shonen hero, so maybe Arthur should pack up his plasma sword and find work in a different anime universe.
The Bleach the universe is an excellent choice for Arthur. His ignition ability would be reborn as a zanpakuto shikai, and he would become popular with all the lost and confused souls who need someone to escort them to Soul Society. Arthur could watch over them like a benevolent and charismatic king looking after his subjects. Everyone would thank him later.
9 Hange Zoe Might Capture Menos Grande For Study (Attack On Titan)
Scout Warrior Hange Zoe is a Titans enthusiast, devoting her life to studying how the Titans work and where they come from. In fact, Hange treated two captured Titans as pets until Annie secretly killed them, and then Hange learned the sad truth about Titans and Eldians.
So Hange should pack up and move Bleach, where they can join Team 12 as a Soul Reaper researcher and investigator. Hange can use advanced kido spells to capture unusual specimens of Menos Grande and tinker with them in the lab to uncover all of their secrets. Captain Kurotsuchi would approve.
8 Megumin can perform Explosive Kido (Konosuba)
Luckily for Megumin, not all Soul Reapers are supposed to wield zanpakuto and fight Hollows up close. The Kido Corps, as the name suggests, is made up of kido practitioners who only use kido spells in battle, and Megumin would love to join them.
As a member of the Kido Corps, Megumin could practice the most advanced blast kido spells and use them to help other Soul Reapers fight powerful Menos around the world. She could also compete with other members of the Kido Corps to prove that she is the #1 explosives expert here.
seven Kyojuro Rengoku would make an excellent captain (Demon Slayer)
The nine elite Hashira are already Soul Reapers, skilled sword fighters who have sworn to slay monsters with their swords. In particular, the flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku would truly thrive in the Bleach universe as one of the new captains.
Kyojuro died at the hands of Akaza, only to be reborn in Soul Society with a new chance at life, so to speak. Kyojuro’s incredible skills, experience, and warm charisma would make him an ideal captain. For example, he could take command of Squad 7 to replace Sajin Komamura, who can no longer fight.
6 Kisho Arima would kill countless hollows (Tokyo Ghoul)
tokyo ghoul is a seinen animated series that also features an entire organization of monster hunters – in this case, CCG investigators who are adept at tracking down and destroying ghouls. CCG agents like Kotaro Amon and Akira Mado are good at what they do, but they can’t even compare to Kisho Arima.
Kisho is a cold-blooded prodigy who can easily send any ghoul into battle, but he eventually died in Tokyo Ghoul:re. Thus, he can be reborn in Soul Society and instead train as a Soul Reaper. He would soon become a captain and also get his own bankai.
5 Kinro should become a reaper of souls (Dr. Stone)
At one point, teenage scientist Senku Ishigami helped the people of Ishigami Village build katanas, and characters such as Kohaku and Kinro were quite skilled with them against Tsukasa Shishio and his thugs. They could make good Soul Reapers, but Kohaku is too attached to her sister Rui to leave the village.
This leaves Kinro, a serious guard who puts duty first. This, combined with his skills, means he would have to train as a Soul Reaper and serve in Team 6, under the command of Captain Byakuya Kuchiki himself. The two would get along pretty well.
4 Mai Zenin should be a Quincy (Jujutsu Kaisen)
It’s no secret that the hit anime Jujutsu Kaisen borrowed some elements from Bleach, including the concept of a high school punk who gains supernatural powers to battle monsters in the streets. However, not all wizards enjoy battling curses in this twisted world.
Mai Zenin suffers from discrimination in the wizarding world along with her sister Maki, and she can’t stand it. Thus, she could be reborn in the Bleach universe as Quincy and put his long-range combat skills to good use while hunting Hollows in his hometown. The Quincy tribe would generously accept him as one of their own.
3 There is a need for Yor Forger in Squad 2 (Spy X Family)
Yor Forger is secretly the Thorn Princess, an elite assassin operating in the shadows of Ostania, his native nation. Yor is very adept at close combat, but alas, Ostania is not a good home for her. She’s not very good at her day job at the town hall of Berlint, and the secret police are downright terrifying.
You should move to Bleach universe, where she can pursue her career as an assassin without worrying about Ostania politics or social ills. Squad 2, for example, is made up of Soul Reaper assassins who would welcome Yor into their ranks, and Yor could focus on full-time assassin work.
2 Asuna Yuuki would make a charming soul reaper (Sword Art Online)
Asuna Yuuki did well in Aincrad and other digital worlds, but she didn’t really enjoy it all. She just wanted to play an ultra-realistic game, not get tricked into an isekai adventure. She made the most of it, however, and fought fiercely to help herself and Kirito escape from this virtual prison.
Asuna is a kind and caring person who is good with a sword, so she should find work as Bleach Soul Reaper instead. In particular, Asuna would find it rewarding to escort lost and frightened souls from Karakura Town to Soul Society while valiantly defending them against marauding Hollows.
1 Naofumi Iwatani is set to join the Kido Corps (The Rising Of The Shield Hero)
Isekai hero Naofumi Iwatani soon became widely hated as the “shield devil”, although his reputation was later restored. Even so, Naofumi doesn’t get along well with the other cardinal heroes as the team’s designated tank, so he’d have to be isekai elsewhere, like Bleach.
Like Megumin, Naofumi would find great success as a member of the Kido Corps and would specialize in all manner of defensive kido spells. Most Soul Reapers would greatly appreciate Naofumi. He would have many mentors and senior officers to train him in this endeavor, and he also has a lot of experience fighting monsters.
