Synopsis

Assigned to protect a royal procession transporting a powerful artifact called the "Ouin," Squad 10 gathers in the human world as Captain Toushirou Hitsugaya and Lieutenant Rangiku Matsumoto observe the area cautiously. However, the caravan is suddenly struck by a group of assailants who wreak havoc on the procession, stealing the Ouin in the process. After a brief clash with one of the attackers, the distraught Hitsugaya pursues the escaping thieves, leaving behind Matsumoto and the disoriented squad. Following the incident, the Seireitei brands Hitsugaya a traitor for abandoning his post and puts Squad 10 on indefinite lockdown.

In the human world, Ichigo Kurosaki is investigating a spiritual abnormality when he stumbles across the injured Captain, but is caught off guard when Hitsugaya suddenly flees. Soon learning of the situation, Ichigo, Rukia Kuchiki, Renji Abarai, and Matsumoto set off to prove Hitsugaya's innocence and uncover the truth behind the theft of the Ouin. Meanwhile, a ghost from Hitsugaya's past haunts his thoughts as he chases down the true culprit.

Bleach: The DiamondDust Rebellion takes place in the Bleach universe, as the title may suggest. It focuses mainly on 10th squad captain Hitsugaya Toshiro, so if you're a fan of him, you'll enjoy this movie, and if you're not, you might not find it interesting. If you're neither of the former, like me, you'll probably enjoy it too.

The story isn't the most original story you'll see, as it follows the theme of revenge based off of a grudge from the past. Said revenge will be executed by obliterating everything. So there's nothing special in that department. Toshiro gets involved in this act of revenge read more

Bleach - The DiamondDust Rebellion is the 2nd movie of the Bleach series. As a fan of Bleach, I dare not write this review until after I've re-watched the movie twice to be sure I did not miss anything crucial. If you just want some recommendation from someone who have watched this movie, I would watch it if you've read/watched Bleach before, otherwise you should skip it.

Story:
The main spot light of the story revolves around Hitsugaya's past when he was still a student in the spiritual academy and how he (and his friend) obtained their zanpakuto. The movie is full of holes to me for read more

Story: I don't want to give any spoilers, but basically if you've seen the trailer, you've seen the majority of the plot. It's not that the plot was bad at all; there were just a few random plot devices that were a bit strange, especially in the beginning with Ichigo's initial involvement in the story. If one compares it to the first Bleach movie (which of course is inevitable), this movie's plot was much better. There were a good amount of flashbacks which were done nicely as well.

Art: You can really see the difference here between the TV series and the movie. There were some read more

I'm going to have to disagree with the various positive reviews posted here.

First off, as a quick and painless summary, I must say that this movie does not in any way measure up to the quality of the first. By the end, I can honestly say I was bored. View a breakdown of the various subsections below.

The plot was not overly interesting. I, being a rather strict advocate of manga canon, was not overly enthused by "One zanpakutou, two owners" idea. In the movie's defense, however, I appreciated their portrayal of the Central 46 as strict and unwavering in their ideology. There were plot read more
