This is the worst thing about Bleach I have seen so far hands down.


The story itself may be decent. Also the art, the sound, and the characters. I for myself really liked the part in the anime.

But honestly. What has this OVA been for? It contained nothing new. It was just like an episode where everything was like a summary. And such things are, in my opinion, useless. Come on now. The people who really watch this anime will KNOW what has happened 2-3 episodes before. Your anime won't get more popular by using this and also your fans wont like it.

This review is going to be a little different then my other ones. If one is looking for a completle remake of the original, this isn't it. This has only a few minor changes and a few minor additions. There was a little more character development and it focused more on a small plot line. One HAS to watch it to figure out if they like it or not really, but hopefully what I've said above will help make up ones mind to watch it or not.

Well First off i'm gonna say that this OVA: Memories in the Rain was made as a pilot before bleach was ever aired. It comprises of parts from episodes 7, 8 and 9 with alterations of course, it's more true to the manga which is a plus.

So don't get it into your head like some of the other reviewers that this is an addition to the main series of Bleach.

The art and sound are a step up from the series which is good to note; nice background music and clearer and more defined animation.

Also the seiyuu of Kon is Tite Kubo the creator of Bleach read more

I do love bleach but this special doesn’t anything special on it. I can say that there was an improvement on the art and the BGM but as per story, it just like they took one episode from the original anime series and added “little” into it. Nothing really new to look out for. I’m just a little disappointed because I am really expecting more. It’s just I am just watching an episode that I’ve seen before.
