Bleach Jigokuhen was pretty good. I loved the animation, top-knotch during the battles. Music was pretty good, although some were kinda dull. Chokkaku was awesome though, I got hyped when I heard that playing. xD

Ichigo's hell armour looked weird. The shiny gold touch made it a tad better though. I was expecting Ichigo to have a better 'look' though. Ah well, it had to be linked with hell so I guess the skulls on his armour were necessary. Although, the golden Getsuga Tenshou was pretty cool, reminded me of Naruto's various unnecessary new Rasengans though. XD

Only real major complaint I have is the story revolving around hell, seemed to weak to me. Would've expected a bigger threat than just a mere human who wants to escape from hell. :S Also, is it just me or does Orihime's voice sound very annoying that you have to complain about it? The Orihime X Ichigo bit was quite pleasing though, never really seen much of that happening other than the time Orihime was leaving for Hueco Mundo.

Overall, it was a good movie, and probably my favourite Bleach movie out of the current 4.

I really liked this movie, but his Hell Armor looked kinda weird, as said before.
But where the hell was Kenpachi, you can't make a Bleach Movie without Kenpachi xD

Did they use some 3D stuff or did they just mess up the drawing at some parts?

The golden armor was stupid. It would have been better if it would have been "normal" colored. Or a different design altogether.

Loved that moment were Yuzu lost her chains and Byakuya was like "wtf? i need to do.. something!" The overall thing was just stupid. Orihime is only limited by her will, if she wants something, or better, if she does not want something, it does not happen. It "unhappens". Why should she accept that Yuzu is dead, even worse, in hell (more or less)?

I can understand Ichigo not giving a damn about how it happend, he's overwhelmed by the fact that he has Yuzu back, but others, like, Byakuya.. i excepted..well, something. If they vanish without them having to do anything, they could have let Orihimes ability work, too, it's not like tthen here would not have been a reason to do some awesome stuff.

The part were the head captain was going "thats all your fault" was annoying. Where where all those captains when Shuren and his guys first attacked the school and kidnapped both Yuzu and Karin? Probably not responsible for it, it was related to hell after all! But then they want to stop Ichigo.

The head captain himself should enter hell, or at least talk to the ones responsible. Surely hell is within jurisdiction of the Soul King, too. They are still souls there, after all. Heck, Soul Society is monitoring it, they have the ability to enforce a return,they do the maintenance of the gate (i don't think the guardian are doing that..) and so on.
Either they have to do something, or the Soul King. Perfect reason to introduce squad zero (unlikely outside the main story, but still..could have given us some corps dealing with hell coming directly from the Soul Kings court, would even explain the Gotei not lifting a finger to help.

Another thing is, someone must have forbidden them to interact with everything hell related, either Yamaji or the Soul King, or someone even higher up, if there is such a thing. So there is a hierachy, and the one on top should have done something about it, even if not directly in control of hell.

It also wasn't explained how they managed to get to the world of the living in the first place, if the guardians are so strong (though they look pretty weak when actually in hell. They looked more impressive before). Might be related to the maintenance they suddenly brought up. Probably Mayuri wanting some new stuff to study)

Ichigo shooting cero after cero in his second hollow stage was nice at first, though it was a bit long. Still, it showed the power he has. They should have let him fight for real, as in, use his sword etc., like he did against Ulquiorra.

Some of the other fights were good, with them kinda taking turns, though i knew how the final fight Rukia had was going to end the moment he captured her. It was so similar to the fight with Aaroniero. Either they planned that all along, or they just had the idea to end it the same way after they had that part.

Overall, the movie was okay, probably my least favorite though. Would have been better if they had used the storyline of the promotional manga, with Szayel and Aaroniero ending up in hell. At least partially, they still could have the overall storyline, but not 20 minutes fighting without hollow form, 20 minutes fighting as hollow, 20 minutes fighting without hollow form, 20 minutes fightings to overcome the hollowfication, 5 seconds with the new form.

Which reminde me of his fight with Aizen. New form, drastically different appearance, new skills, a single attack that takes out the enemy..or not. Both attacks did not kill the enemy, after both attacks someone or something else had to finish the job. He should stick with his hollow form, at least he managed to kill Ulquiorra with it. 1:0:0 when comparing hollow form, final getsuga tenshou and "hell" form.

That was some interesting quality, the beginning looked really CG'd though. Buuut I really enjoyed the contrast changes in Hell. It looked pretty spiff.

Kokuto was like my favorite character in the movie until the last half though. That was pretty disappointing. I mean really, if he didn't just betray everyone by the end I'm sure Ichigo would've helped him. :U

It was alright, but it mainly focused in Ichi v The bad/fakegood guy. (Don't pay attention to names)

Just finished watching it, and whoa! Very good intro and a sweet ending. This movie satisfied one of my need when watching Bleach, seeing Ichigo in his Vasto Lorde form. Had way much more fight scene than i had hoped for. 8/10

First off, the movie was rushed.
Secondly, the plot was extremely cliche, and I felt as if I had seen it before in one of the earlier episodes in the TV series. To put simply, it felt as if the plot was re-used.
Thirdly, *new* characters popping out of nowhere without proper introductions are a real put-off.
Fourthly, my eardrums are about to burst from the immense number of times Ichigo screamed.
Fifthly, there is no sound explanation as to why Yuzu's chains disintegrated into nothingness.

To sum up my rants and complaints (I still have a lot more up my sleeve), I hated the movie. Period. It reminded me why I dropped the TV series to begin with. :/

Started good, ended somehow bad. Ichigo's "rampage" just wasn't enough. They could add more fights with hollowform instead just firing beams :S The ending song was good, listening to movie-eds is rare from me (I just skip them expect if there are animation going on)
Oh, and one last thing. Actually when Ichigo was confident that Yuzu is dead and screen went black-up moving, suddenly i just thought the "to be continued" from TV series appears. It always happen when something climatic occurs. :D

Anyway good movie.

Bleach movies need to step up, visuals are getting better but everything else is getting worse.

Kokuto's voice actor basically carried the movie himself, I was waiting for him to randomly say "PUT YA GUNZ ON!". Would have made the movie an automatic 10/10 then. Kokuto betraying everyone...BIG SURPRISE. Could have at least try to not make it like the other dozen betrayal situations this series is known for by now.

The further along the movies the worse the plots seem to be getting in these Bleach movies, this was nearly no better than what you would find off a random Bleach fanfiction site. I was actually moved a little by Memories of Nobody and the Hitsugaya focused one introduced a lot of quality themes that TV series repeatedly abused nowadays.

Movie saving points
- Reanimated Hollow Ichigo vs. Ulquiorra fight
- Kokuto voice actor
- Rukia and tentacles

I think it's interesting to set in hell but the whole plot is pretty weak so I'm gonna give it a 3.5/5 !!

The first half was great, starting with Hollow Ichigo Vs Ulquiorra [reanimated with new scenes was epic], it was like when Bleach started with Ichigo offering flowers to the spirits and all, loved that.. The rest was OK, but Shuren Vs Ichigo was dam badass it was very well done and then Ichigo went berserk! Dam that was epic though i wish he have done more than fire Cero's, the moments after Ichigo returned from Hell where he was broken down by Yuzu's condition was well done too, don't see much of that in Bleach :)

I didn't really like that power from "Hell" Ichigo got, kinda lame if you ask me :L

All in all i enjoyed it, the fights, OST, animation was very well done, possibly my favorite Bleach movie.

7/10 but +1 for T.M T.M.Revlolution ED <333

Really enjoyed watching this movie. The fight scences were a bit rushed but the animation throughout was awesome! Liked the twist on the bleach songs too. And loved seeing the fight scene with Ulquiorra and Ichigo reanimated! Was hoping to see some of the espada who died.. oh well..

Overall, gave this movie a 7/10.

I liked it, easily my favorite Bleach movie. Ichigo was as annoying as always, but Kokuto was awesome. Hell yeah Nakai Kazuya~! I'm a little disappointed that Shuren was just tossed aside though, he was cool too.

Also I couldn't help laughing at Ichigo's wtf face after Kokuto first stabbed him and then asked if he was alright. Now that moment was really well put together haha~
