I've noticed a lot of Spanish influence around the Bleach universe, from the Menos Grande(Big Minus roughly translated), to Chad's history, and even Shunsui Kyoraku's theme song, Por Una Cabeza, to name just a few. I was just wondering if anyone else noticed this, and if they could explain a bit. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, just interesting.

Yeah...if anyone hasn't noticed the Spanish(not Latin, SPANISH) things in the show, please, just stop watching/reading.
And, yes, from the beginning, many things have been derived from Spanish, most of which is related to Hollows.

A short list:
Hueco Mundo
Menos Grande
Cero
Fraccion
Resurreccion
Arrancar
Espada
Privaron
Exequias
Brazo Derecha de Gigante
Brazo Izquierda del Diablo
El Directo
La Muerte

Yes, as Xero says, a lot of things in Bleach are Spanish influenced. I think it's cool though, how the names aren't just limited to Japanese in anime now.
