After a mysterious pair attack Rukia Kuchiki and erase her memories while she is in Seireitei, Ichigo Kurosaki, a substitute Soul Reaper, briefly forgets Rukia, until he is reminded of her by Kon, an Underpod Mod-Soul. Confused, he seeks his town's candy-shop owner, Kisuke Urahara, who opens the pathway to Seireitei for them. Ichigo is then shocked to find that his allies in Seireitei, the Shinigami of the Soul Society, have forgotten him.

Filled with action, Kimi no Na wo Yobu follows Ichigo and Kon as they fight against their former comrades while searching for the missing Rukia and discovering her assailants before they strike again.

Maybe it's just from hollywood dragging standards down, but I'm shocked this movie understands making people forget about someone doesn't erase physical records. They even have things tied to Rukia forgotten, like Renji's bankai. It's a nice touch. The soul reapers are dumbasses though, so it's accurate to the show. It's like the soul society arc. The only one with any intelligence is Byakuya, because he unlocked his brain after the soul society arc.

The fight at the end is paced well, you can tell what's going on, as opposed to The Diamond Dust Rebellion that kind of became a mess toward the end. Overall I'd ...

Mixed Feelings
Fade to Black is essentially DiamondDust Rebellion all over again. Does that mean it’s worse? Better? Which is it?


Fade to Black is executed much better than DiamondDust, and feels more engaging from a narrative structure point of view, but the concept is much weaker.

We are once again introduced to a MacGuffin. It is an apparently dangerous creation of Mayuri’s and the villains steal it. Why is it dangerous? I don’t know. What does it do? I have no idea. I don’t even think it’s ever given an actual name in the movie, which makes calling it a MacGuffin somehow even more appropriate. Alas, the main ...

I honestly don't know what I was expected with this movie, but I was highly disappointed nonetheless. Fade to Black was actually highly boring to me. Now, I don't know if it's because I watched The DiamondDust Rebellion right before I watched this one but I can honestly say that this movie wasn't entertaining at at all. To be honest, the storyline didn't really make any sense.

Now I don't want to get into any spoilers for the movie because that's not allowed, but the ending was terrible (along with the rest of it). The explanation for why the bad guy(s) of film did what ...
