An artifact known as the "King's Seal" is stolen during transport from the Soul Society by an unidentified Soul Reaper and two Arrancar resembling girls who control fire and lightning. During the attack, Toshiro Hitsugaya corners and seems to recognize the Soul Reaper, who immediately stabs him in the stomach. In the middle of battle, Hitsugaya abandons his post to pursue him and leaves his squad behind to fend for themselves. After the battle, The Soul Society suspects Hitsuguya of treason and orders his immediate capture. The whole 10th Squad is then put on house arrest at which time they can surmise whether or not the division should be abolished. With the whole of Soul Society looking for Hitsugaya, Ichigo as a soul reaper on patrol accidentally stumbles upon Squad 2 Captain Soifon while she is conducting an investigation of the transport site. Soifon informs him of the events happening in the Soul Society and dispels the kido surrounding them. As Soifon disappears with her crew, ... Written by
When the Japanese Royal family orders that a scared object,known as the Oween,an amplifier of unlimited spiritual power,is to be moved to another area, Squad 10 of the Soul Society is commanded to keep the area secure. Unfortunately,the Oween is stolen by a rogue member of the Soul Society,who was rumoured to be assassinated by Squad 10 Captain,Toshiro Hitsugaya,but backed out at the last minute. When Capt. Hitsugaya abandons his post to find out what's going on,he is suspected to be in cahoots with Sojiro Kusaka,who had stolen the Oween. It is up to Ichigo,Rukia,and the rest of the Soul Reapers to intervene (much to the chagrin of the elders of the Soul Society). Subplots involving Hitsugaya's past,as well as Ichigo's past are interpolated into this fast paced tale of good versus evil. Noriyuke Abe is once again on tap to direct this beautifully illustrated & animated feature,from a script by Michiko Yokote & Masahiro Okubo,from the original Manga (graphic novel)by Tite Kubo,adapted from the Japanese television series 'Bleach'. As usual,the characters are voiced by the same cast as the series (with Wendee Lee,best known for her voice over work on Anime series such as 'Cowboy Bebop', as voice director for the American version,who also adds her voice talents). Spoken in either Japanese (no English subtitles on the Japanese DVD),or English dubbed. Not rated by the MPAA,but contains some fairly bloody violence & fierce battle scenes & a rude word or two.
