If you have been in the anime fandom for awhile, then you will know who the Big Three are. Fans have come to address Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach as three of the genre’s most popular titles, but no one has ever settled what all would happen if the shows’ heroes tried to take each other on. Now, fans have an answer for one of the pairings - sort of.
Over on Youtube, the folks behind Screw Attack! finally put Ichigo Kurosaki and Naruto Uzumaki in one intense battle. The video, which can be seen above, takes nearly half an hour to break down which of the heroes before putting them into battle. And, whether you like or it or not, Naruto came out as the video’s victor.
Screw Attack acknowledged Ichigo’s massive power, but Naruto edged the Bleach protagonist out with his training and healing factor. While the Soul Reaper may team up with the Gotei 13, Ichigo did not grow up with rigorous training like Naruto did. The entirety of the ninja’s life was spent honing his skills for battle, and Naruto was also gifted one insane healing factor since he hosts the Nine-Tailed Fox.
While Ichigo put up one intense fight, the Soul Reaper was not a match for Naruto and his never-ending list of techniques. Bleach fans have come to terms with the results, but there are those who argue Screw Attack! nerfed the orange-haired hero to make things easier on Naruto, but we will leave that up to you to decide.
So, what do you think? When it comes to these heroes, who do you believe wins? Does Naruto’s ninja way give him the upper-hand, or can Ichigo’s Bankai give him the edge he needs? Hit us up on Twitter @ComicBook or @MeganPetersCB to let us know!
