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.

Diamond Dust Rebellion had to be one of the better movies, until now. The storyline is both interesting and enjoyable, reminding the viewer of the eventful days when Ichigo first stepped into soul society. The only down side for me is the lack of appearance of Ichigo with his hallow mask.

Since this is a movie, I won't go into the details of the story proper as I ...

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 ...
