Memories of Nobody is a movie based on the popular Bleach anime and manga. I recently started watching the bleach episodes in the right order and also decided to have a look at the movies released based on the anime. Memories of Nobody is the first Bleach movie and was released in December of 2006, first in Japan and then on DVD there the summer of last year. It was recently announced that the movie will be released in a limited amount of theatres in North America soon with the DVD following not long after.
About the film
Bleach: Memories of Nobody is headlined by the main hero in the series Kurosaki Ichigo and features popular characters from the series like Captain Hitsugaya, Rukia Kuchiki and my favourite character Kisuke Urahara. Unidentifiable blank spirits start to appear in Ichigo’s home town and he and Rukia Kuchiki goes to investigate only to run into a very skilled but unknown soul reaper named Senna. The story follows Ichigo’s investigation of Senna, the blank souls mysterious happenings and of course the sudden appearance of an evil gang. The story isn’t very good but is acceptable without being too corny.
What do I think about Memories of Nobody
The movie is entertaining but lacks any great surprises, or as my friend say it, there are no scenes that make you go “Bumboclaat!” (Jamaican expletive). The bad guys were of the generic type, with a lame story and introduction but in the end we all know the heroes are going to win and then everybody will live happily until the next villain appears. It’s worth watching, just for watching it sake, just don’t expect too much.
The Second Bleach Movie: The DiamondDust Rebellion
The DiamondDust Rebellion was released in Japan in December of last year and seeing that there are no DVD releases as yet the subbed version of the film is yet to be released. Looking forward to watching this as soon as it is translated later in the summer.
