    Anyone else think Bleach is based on the Six Paths of Buddhist reincarnation?

    So between the Six Paths of Pain in Naruto, and Asura's Wrath in general, I was looking at the descriptions of the Six Paths of Buddist Reincarnation that both of those things are based on recently, and while reading them, I realized that there seems to be a lot of similarities between them and Bleach as well.

    Going through them from top to bottom:

    1. Devas = Shinigami, Deva are the ones with the god powers, and they are "Death Gods" after all.
    2. Humans = Fullbringers, obviously
    3. Asuras = Quincy, I have no real explanation for why I put them here
    4. Animals = Doesn't fit anything in the series, so far
    5. Preta/Hungry Ghosts = Hollows, obviously
    6. Naraka/Beings of Hell = The enemies introduced in the forth movie, which was supposedly plotted by Kubo himself.

    This makes me think that this is intentional on the part of Kubo, and if the series goes long enough, we'll eventually see a new Animal based group of supernaturals(although most of the Arrancar are this already, but I still consider Arrancar to be separate from Hollows).

    I don't know, just a theory I had.
