The fourth Bleach movie, aptly titled BLEACH The Movie: Hell Verse, is finally coming to North America! After revisiting the final fight between Ichigo Kurosaki and Ulquiorra, Rukia Kuchiki and Renji Abarai drop in on Ichigo unannounced. Masked beings, the Unforgiven, have descended upon Ichigo’s school and it’s soon discovered where they’ve come from: Hell.
Shuren, the head of the Unforgiven, attempts to kidnap Ichigo’s sisters, but succeeds in taking Yuzu Kurosaki. With the aid of one of the spirits, Ichigo, Rukia, Renji and Uryu Ishida depart for Hell to save Yuzu. Descending into Hell, Ichigo finds that his Hollow keeps awakening and threatens to overtake him. The quest to recover his sister exposes the grim background of the Unforgiven and Shuren’s plan to break the gates of Hell wide open – a culmination that would devastate the world of the living.
BLEACH The Movie: Hell Verse will be available on Viz Media’s Neon Alley streaming service on November 25th, 2012 and on DVD December 4th, 2012. The film initially premiered on December 4th, 2010 in Japan.
