    None of them are "deep." Its hack-and-slash shonen.

    "I won't let you hurt my friends! A hero never gives up! Thats why--I MUST DEFEAT YOU!!!" Its all the same juvenile platitudes and recycled tripe.

    GoT is "deep."
    W40k is "deep."
    Old-school Fire Emblem was "deep."

    Bleach at times came closest to having a pretense of being deep. But at the end of the day it was exactly that: pretense.

    It was still just hack-and-slash shonen.

        The semi-poetic exposition of certain abilities is the main cause of shitstorms in VS debates, where each person uses their own interpretation of certain lines as argument to support or refute.

        To this day, "the heart" is a meme specifically because it's not understood by most lol

        If you ask me, Kubo was writing for the wrong audience

          You've been sucking off Kubo too much lately. Do you miss your Clorox that much?

                That's like an oversimplification of all action manga. All three titles have depth. Bleach just covers many more themes and can be very subtle about some. Specially when the majority are set up by secondary characters. "Responsibility" is the Bleach version of "my Nakamas," to start with. So the bolded^ rarely applies to Ichigo in any of his battles, if at all.

                Considering Ichigo is popularly thought to be the lame Shonen protagonist with "no personal goal," this should be obvious.

                  I haven't mentioned the series' quality (even in passing) for like a year, maybe two. Kindly extricate yourself from my barbed scrote, you dunce.

                                Technically true...!

                                However, I do prefer One Piece because how they go about it is different for each arc. Luffy has also gotten wrecked in some of these fights and had a major death in his series. I don't quite recall Ichigo or Naruto trying to save someone and instead having them die in front of their eyes.

                                There no real deep philosophy with One Piece but there are some really good parallels. Like the discrimination and oppression of an entire race of people had (Fishmen). How the ultra wealthy can do whatever they want (celestial dragons). How corrupt a government body can be (CP9). So there is a lot to gleam from but you won't get Luffy hitting you with some philosophical jibberish which I prefer honestly.

                                The world building is still my most favorite thing about the series and how Oda planted seeds early on for content that came hundreds of chapters later. I don't think anyone has done better than him in that regard. Same with the funky character designs with the bizarre bodies. Granted he can only draw clones of Nami and Robin when it comes to beauty, but the rest of his artwork is definitely creative. At least I know he will suck at drawing porn unlike a certain guild master manga creator. *coughs*

                                  You're talking storywise

                                  I don't quite recall Ichigo or Naruto trying to save someone and instead having them die in front of their eyes.
                                  They did but the deaths were retconned. Naruto with the Leaf Village in the Pain arc and Ichigo with SS, Byakuya more specifically, in the final arc. Luffy is just the only one that experienced emotional devastation.

                                  Naruto and Bleach have these too.

                                  I'm sure Luffy already has

                                  Fairy Tail also cloned its women. More so than One Piece, I would say.

                                    Corrupt goverments and the wealthy benefiting from the downtrodden are pretty easy targets. They don't do anything with it. It's just fodder for the MC to comment that it's bad and how they'll change things.

                                      In Naruto and Bleach, it's villains that take this role. And they fail

                                          one piece -- kizaru is often depicted as wearing a tie but in some game/movie iterations he has a turtleneck
