The roles of Ichigo, Urahara, Uryu, and Orihime retain their English voice actors from the anime. Funnily, the voice in the anime of Ichigo's sister Yuzu switched roles to voice Ichigo's other sister Karin in this film. While some voice actors did play minor roles in the bleach anime, all other dubbed voices are not the anime English voices for those characters. See more »

The opening credits are a montage of shots of Karakura town, spliced with missing person reports, graveyards, and Ichigo's Zanpakuto sword. See more »
As a fan of the anime and manga, I was concerned about how they were going to condense the story into a film-length as well as the protrayal and interaction between characters. They took the right amount of creative freedom without losing the heart of the characters or story. In fact, the film wonderfully goes into more depth on certain aspects. Without spoiling, one character's interaction was different but did not break who the character is. That aspect is still growing on me but it's not bad. Overall, this film brought the story back to life and more.
