Kubo found inspiration for many names of swords and spells in ancient Japanese literature. Kubo said that he became interested in Spanish because to him the language sounded "bewitching" and "mellow"; Bleach includes a number of Spanish words in its vocabulary.[19]

Kubo said that he likes creating characters that have "outward appearance"s that "belie their true nature" (such as "good guys with mean-looking faces" and "bad guys who look gentle") because Kubo was "attracted to people with that seeming contradiction" and finds an "urge to draw people like that when I work."[19]

In an interview the United States Shonen Jump staff stated that Bleach is "very cinematic" and the members believed that Kubo used films as "models" for the storytelling. When asked if any specific films or actors provided examples for fight sequences, Kubo responded by telling the interviewers that he liked Snatch but he did not use it as a model. Kubo added that movies he liked "must influence" him "in various ways."[20]
