I have been a fan of Bleach ever since it first came out as an animated series. The first 50 or so episodes were golden, absolutely brilliant, because there was a clear goal in mind for Kurosaki Ichigo. Once the goal had been achieved, however, the show's entertainment value ebbed considerably. The entire show has just become another aimless soap opera for Japanafreaks.
Unfortunately, this movie is no different from the usual Bleach stuff. It's VERY formulaic and really introduces nothing new. It feels as thought the writers have a template that they routinely just plug different ideas into and come out with the next movie.
Allow me to demonstrate:
"Oh noes! Someone needs help (insert victim here)." "Hey Ichigo, we're here to help (insert Ichigo's friends here)." "I'm your enemy Ichigo (insert new opponent here)!" "RAAAAAWWWRRRRR (insert Ichigo getting angry here)!"
Fight begins. (Super-mega-ultra-power-blasts inserted here) Pause fight for enemy character development. (Insert storyline for enemy here)
"My drama is stronger than your drama Ichigo!" (Insert enemy drama-blasts here) "Oh noes! I've been defeated!" (Ichigo's drama-blasts fail to overcome enemy drama-blasts)
"What did you learn Ichigo?" (insert Ichigo's lesson here) "I will use my new knowledge to become more drama-powerful and defeat my enemy!" (Ichigo's drama level rises by 10)
Fight resumes. (Ichigo's drama-blasts succeed. Enemy is defeated and all Ichigo's friends are saved)
Ichigo goes home and resumes chillin.
And that pretty much sums up most of the Bleach episodes and movies.
Again, I like Bleach, and I overall enjoyed this movie, but I feel at this point that the makers are simply not willing to move on with their story. I feel like the show has essentially been "paused" for some time now, and I'm just waiting for it to.. well.. DO something.
