Fade to Black - English Subs & Discussion  
It's another Fade to Black post! But probably the last one you'll see me do, because ENGLISH SUBS ARE OUT BY DATTEBAYO.

http://www.dattebayo.com/t/bmovie3.torrent

Dattebyao apparently changed how they're subbing Bleach from now on, so might want to read their announcement post.

http://www.dattebayo.com/pr/123

I took the liberty of collecting every single scrap of FTB merchandise that either I or other people did, and I posted them at ichi_ruki (HERE). If people want to go find goodies for the movie, they... really should all be there, including links to screencaps, ripped trailers, OP & ED animation (creditless)... etc.

This post is open for people to discuss their thoughts on Fade to Black, if they so wish. Discuss anything in that vein, comments, reactions, whatever.



Random observations.

* The reason everyone forgets Ichigo is because the SS people all know him through Rukia, and they forget Rukia.... but it never occurs to him to wonder why Urahara still knows him. GJ, Ichigo.
* Kon never forgets Rukia, Ichigo forgets her for a few minutes. They are the only people to properly remember Rukia throughout the entire film. Renji gets hazy flashbacks, but still can't properly identify her by the end.
* Hisana was almost playful in Byakuya's memories, the way she kept saying, "Byakuya-sama! Byakuya-sama!" Well, playful until she started coughing herself to death.
* Rukia has the loneliest bedroom in existence at the Kuchiki manor. NOTHING IN THERE. EXCEPT A DESK. WITH A CHAPPY CARVING.
* Mayuri is almost adorable when he's got amnesia.
* Without his memories, Urahara hasn't seen Byakuya in such a long time, he didn't initially recognize him.
* The 6th division apparently practices using zanpakuto for traveling. SENBONZAKURA WARP TUNNEL & Zabimaru the RIDE. It's like Bleachland.
* Ichigo can't decipher Rukia's letter until he remembers her. Then he does it instantly.
* There are no humans in this movie at all, other than Ichigo. He leaves directly to Urahara's and then to SS without ever thinking of or contacting his friends.
* Where the hell did Yachiru go while Kenpachi was frozen by white goo? She certainly comes back quickly.
* Shuuhei is at Rangiku's back in their one fight scene in the movie. Thought that was funny, given his crush on her.
* I never realized before how much like Superman Hitsugaya is. He can fly around and freeze things (though not with his breath).
* Yamamoto is apparently incapable, in the anime-verse, of slow, reasoned rationalizing.

In regards to the last scene, which Kubo specifically discussed in interview having planned himself with the director:
* Reincarnation is a very real theme in Bleach, and one Kubo will address more in the future, I'm positive now.
* The data card for the movie hints - and really not that subtly - that Ichigo and Rukia know each other from past lives.

I don't actually have a ship analysis myself, other than squeeing my head off. However, someone named Likos64 was much more coherent than me, and I've been pimping her post because I think it was really well written.

^ ROTFLMAO HAHAHAHAHA!! XDD I never realized this before!! XDD!!!

~I think someone already pointed it out in the FC some loong lonng lonnnnnng time ago that I don't remember who XDD, that Kon is the only one that remembers Rukia in the movie because the only people affected by the memory erasing stuff done by the siblings are the shinigami. It's picky with its existence erasing job :hm

and WOW!! <33 You're an ANGEL KYLARA SAN~ <333333 Thank you so much for going out your way and organizing all the merchandise and stuff for us T____T

Actually, Morita Masakazu, you know, Ichigo's seiyuu? On the commentary, NONE of them can stop laughing once Byakuya shows up and does that tunnel. He describes it as "Byakuya's WARP TUNNEL" (he says those words in English) and they call it the amazing "PINK TUNNEL" (also in English).

It's amazing XD

Also, so are you, thank you again for translating those two cards. *hug* So much wonderful information on there!

//that Kon is the only one that remembers Rukia in the movie because the only people affected by the memory erasing stuff done by the siblings are the shinigami//

OH. Okay. XD

It's pretty simple. All you need is a BitTorrent client--the most popular one is called utorrent and you can download it at www.utorrent.com

Once you have it installed, click on the first link in karenai's post and when the download dialog comes up you can choose to open the file with utorrent. It will start up the program, prompt you where to save the file, and it will start downloading. That's pretty much it. Hope that helps! ^_^

Dattebayo's sub isn't perfect, but overall it's much better than Punch's sub. Plus, since Dattebayo's translation of Ichigo's ending speech to Rukia seemed pretty dead-on and was actually coherent (unlike Punch's), I can forgive them for translating "taisetsu na nakama" as "very close friend" and "best friend." I would love to see Flomp Fansubs sub the movie, but I wonder if they will since they apparently don't have a reliable timer anymore. :/

Oh, and for your goodies post on ichi_ruki, I'm Athena at Bleach Asylum :]

Random Observations that my friend and I had:
- The eyelash showdown between Ichigo and Byakuya is unintentionally hilarious. Their expressions are powerful, and it really is a lovely scene, but the eyelashes... I don't know what the animators were thinking. Also, I need whatever mascara those boys use.
- Why did it take so long for Byakuya to show up when fighting the squid monster? We could only conclude he didn't want to get squid goo in his beautiful hair because it's a bitch to get out. (And where did Yamamoto go?)
- There didn't seem to be any reason for Ichigo to cover his face up during the reiraku scene. Other than he didn't want Renji to see the LOVE written all over his face for Rukia and misinterpret it.

The reason everyone forgets Ichigo is because the SS people all know him through Rukia, and they forget Rukia.... but it never occurs to him to wonder why Urahara still knows him.
It was clear Urahara-tachi didn't remember Ichigo, but it does appear that Ichigo never picked up on that fact. He's not really the sharpest guy when his soulmate love "precious friend" is in trouble.

And not that I want to bring up some of the huge gaping plotholes in this movie (because it really is my favorite thing ever right now), but I'm wondering how Yamamoto-tachi explained Aizen, et. al. not being there? I assume they remember Aizen, Gin, and Tousen's betrayal but probably not the circumstances surrounding it.

Kon never forgets Rukia
I assumed that was because he wasn't a shinigami. Though one wonders if Ishida, Inoue, and Sado would have remembered Rukia... And speaking of them:

There are no humans in this movie at all, other than Ichigo. He leaves directly to Urahara's and then to SS without ever thinking of or contacting his friends.
It's a good thing they weren't in it since they'd really just have been distractions (plus they're never important in the movies), but... yeah. Ichigo's got a one-track mind.

I really loved all the parallels to the Soul Society arc in this movie. I know some people have been complaining that this movie was just a retread of old ground, but the parallels were obvious and deliberate, serving to underscore how much Ichigo and Rukia's relationship has developed and evolved since their first meeting. That's why I think Kubo said their "changing feelings" was what he wanted fans to take away from the movie.
Kylara: squeeeekarenai on October 4th, 2009 06:49 am (UTC)
I edited you in! <3 Thanks so much for the screencaps, Athena, you're AMAZING.

Oh, my god, the eyelash scene. I COULD NOT LOOK AT THE SCREEN. Ichigo's eyes in particular made me cover my own, it was unendurable. I don't know if I was laughing or crying.

Ichigo covering up his face was just like when he pulls out his Vizard mask, except this time he was ... not pulling out a mask, but his connected thread with Rukia. I assume he's used to doing that now when he concentrates hard.

And yeah, some people thought it was just the SS arc again... but no, it's actually pretty different in some very specific ways, particularly with Ichigo's feelings for Rukia. What's interesting now is how strongly Ichigo's identity is tied to hers - erase her, the movie says, and even if he has his powers, he doesn't feel like he's Ichigo anymore - the person that HE needs to call his name isn't doing it, and that, he just can't handle.

Yeah, I'm happy.
Running on Coffee and Schadenfreudearcadiasilver on October 4th, 2009 08:08 am (UTC)
I'm really surprised nobody's commented on the ludicrous bukkake monster at the end. It practically turned me bipolar between fits of teenager-style giggling and bawling at the IchiRuki scenes.
Asano Keigo: sexy timesasano_san on October 6th, 2009 02:56 am (UTC)
I just watched the movie tonight, and I noticed the bukkake from the very beginning. I had to pause it and send my husband the message, "In the first ten minutes of the Bleach movie, Soul Society was attacked by what appear to be buckets of jizz." (I'm sure that was just what he wanted to hear while he was at work.)

And...feeling too lazy to log out of this account for the one I'm actually subscribed to the comm under, but I can at least switch from the default icon and not make Keigo point accusingly at you.
Horusguard76: B - PunkShuuhei (cool)horusguard76 on October 4th, 2009 09:18 am (UTC)
My biggest issue with the movie is that the characters are drawn in a rather ugly manner. When I compare this one to the first and second movies... they were so poetic and breathtakingly beautiful. *sigh*

The memory loss was a nice angle though.

Not a fan of tentacles... is there really a 'tentacles equal the movie will be a hit' formula? :/ Bugger.
Kylara: henshinkarenai on October 4th, 2009 02:14 pm (UTC)
It depends on the scene, IMO. In the first scene where Ichigo reunites with amnesiac!Rukia on the grassy hill, Rukia is drawn better than I've ever seen her in the anime, ever.

(screencaps from http://anything.ws/bleach/fade/)

Like this: http://anything.ws/bleach/fade/images/fade1200.jpg
Thought this was pretty: http://anything.ws/bleach/fade/images/fade1067.jpg

And when they redrew the episode 1 scene, Rukia again, looked MUCH better:
http://anything.ws/bleach/fade/images/fade2936.jpg

I always loathed the first episode for its animation of Rukia, which they cleaned up starting in episode TWO, so this makes me a lot happier.

... Still, there were some frames where I sat there, staring at Renji's face, and wondering what sin he committed against the animators for them to twist up his face like that.

pulling myself out of the lurk to share the movie love. <3 this movie is so full of shippy goodness.
i'll poke fun at some scenes that not many people exploited:

- alzheimer's!mayuri faceplanting in his attempt to escape the nemu and his squeak when he looks over his shoulder is so much win. SO MUCH WIN.

- said alzheimer's victim backs up his brain. because that's what psycho scientists do.

- ichi bankaied on renji's bankaiLOLLLLLL

- for all this talk about not remembering ichigo or rukia, NO ONE CARES TO MENTION THEY FORGOT ABOUT EMO KIRA BUT THE ANIMATORS COVERED THAT PLOTHOLE UP WITH MAKING THE LIL BROTHER LOOK UNSUSPICIOUSLY LIKE HIM.
right?

that is all.
kohi_no_torakohi_no_tora on October 4th, 2009 09:48 am (UTC)
Actually I don't think they could have contained the emo if they had included. Shizuku is voiced by the same guy who did (among others) Itoshiki Nozomu aka Zetsubo-sensei! (Sharing a seiyuu from a Shounen Jump action show has left him in despair!)

Must remember that Bleachland line

My general observations.

- Ichihime shippers are going to despise this movie with the fury of a thousand suns! (And they're going to be Wolf-Rayet stars!) Personally I don't care! Even leaving out issues of romance I've always found the character dynamic between Ichigo and Rukia more engaging.

- Is is just me or did this movie seem to have a higher animation budget than the other two? There's a distinct look about some scenes that are just screaming 'Yes! We are blowing a lot of yen per second here!' They were there in Memories of Nobody and Diamond Dust Rebellion but Fade to Black had more of them and they were longer.

- This isn't my imagination. This movie had some of the best action scene choreography in any animated version of Bleach. The scene in Byakuya's garden but even less... high budgeted scenes like the little fracas with Hisagi when Ichigo first arrived and the fight with Ikkaku were very tightly choreographed.

- Speaking of the scene with Hisagi, does anyone else think the mask was included in that scene just so they could have it make an appearance.
kohi_no_torakohi_no_tora on October 4th, 2009 09:46 am (UTC)
Oh yeah, almost forgot. Yay! Aya-chan as Homura! (Hirano, not Endo). Though some of Homura's lines are a little odd considering the content being delivered in her Chiko (Daughter of Twenty Faces) voice.
dinosaur_ydinosaur_y on October 4th, 2009 10:16 am (UTC)
First, thanks for sharing the DL link. I didn't DL, but it did made me look for the streaming version. SO, yeah, thanks. :D

* Mayuri is almost adorable when he's got amnesia.
Oh, so I wasn't the only one who thought that. xD

* The 6th division apparently practices using zanpakuto for traveling. SENBONZAKURA WARP TUNNEL & Zabimaru the RIDE. It's like Bleachland.
Zabimaru the ride also appeared in the second movie if I remember correctly. Or maybe it was Zabimaru the shortcut. But Senbonzakura the warp tunnel is simply... WTH. I can see jokes and memes stemming from this now.

* There are no humans in this movie at all, other than Ichigo. He leaves directly to Urahara's and then to SS without ever thinking of or contacting his friends.
Oh Ichi. You're so protective when it comes to your love interest important nakama.

Random observations:
-I can't explain how Kon appeared upright during Ichi and Dark Rukia's fight. Wasn't it that when he got launched into the purple goo and froze he was upside down?
-Urahara is made of win. He just stands there, pwning those white dragon hollow thingies. Then again, he always was. And wasn't he on permaban?
-Kira and Momo didn't show up, but the former's zanpakutou is seen in the ending.
-The 6th division has the GIRLIEST ZANS EVER. I mean, there's the massive pink wave of flower petals, and Zabimaru in bankai form has this reddish pink beam. :|
-I sat through the whole ending identifying the zans. I didn't see Haineko.

Anyway, I loved it that Orihime didn't appear. Not that I hate her, it's just that the movie stuck to the IchiRuki ship. Slight RenRuki, but yeah.

Ffff, I'll stop babbling now. :|
Kylara: crobat =_=karenai on October 4th, 2009 02:18 pm (UTC)
Slight RenRuki, but also slight IchiRen... and sometimes, I just wanted to slap them all together so they could have a threesome. Oh, movie, you were so shippy.

Okay, I KEPT wondering about Kon too, and my explanation is that when Dark Rukia blew the roof of the building off, it landed right-side up, or, Kon was slightly on the wall, so that fell over, landing with him right side-up. Or, it was convenient for the animators.

_debbiechan_: bleach_debbiechan_ on October 4th, 2009 12:12 pm (UTC)


I saw it! I saw it! The fully properly subbed Dattebayo experience! *dances around*

*BREATHES OUT*

Okaaaay, at first I wasn't impressed with the animation because DDR looked better in its first scenes. But the story here was pure Bleach. It had Kubo's touch all over it. The references to manga hit home base and scored points with me--loved Urahara visiting Mayuri in a nod to the TBTP arc and all the flashbacks, usually annoying and fillery in anime, carried a poetic weight within the movie's story. By the time we got the scene of all the captains fighting the tentacle-bukkake monster, the money showed--weee! That was some good fun. I tend to wet myself everytime Ukitake and Shunsui release their weapons anyway but if I'd been sitting in a theatre I would've felt like I'd gotten my money's worth right there for the fighting scenes. The Evil!Rukia and Ichigo fight seemed too short but the first close-up whacks of that scythe coming at the camera were breathtaking.

I came for the IchiRuki and dare I say my favorite part about this movie was the Win!Renji? Renji was awesome in this movie. He was hot, adorable, and although there was more RenIchi in the plot than RenRuki (my preferred ship of the two), it was such a relief from the manga and anime to see Renji doing being so ... winsome. When he went bankai to the "Number One" music, I was squeeing and laughing and having a grand ole time.

The great love story in this movie was Byakuya and Hisana. *Sigh* Oh my. *Clutches fangirl heart* But geez, Perriot, Kubo, how more subtle could you be about the future of Ichigo and Rukia than to have Ichigo declare his connection to her and then locate her presence with a LITERAL TANGIBLE GIANT
RED STRING OF FATE FLYING ACROSS THE SCREEN? And then the bit of reincarnation business Kubo claims to have worked into the speech at the end with Director Abe. At this point, it's not a matter of whether IchiRuki will be canon but how and when....

Kudos to Morita-kun for his voice-acting. He said he'd worked hard for his new voice for Ichigo. Kubo-sensei came to the studio to coach the actors, and I have to say the voices were the best part. It never fails to impress me how Japanese seiyuu can make two-dimensional drawings so believable at times.

Will never get tired of the ending song. "Tonight Even Though We Can Not See the Moon" by Porno Graffit" rocked me all last winter and I just love it so.

Hmmm. I'll have breakfast and then I'll watch it again! <3

Kylara: ichiruki = bleachkarenai on October 4th, 2009 02:34 pm (UTC)
My favorite love story in this was still IchiRuki XD though I am greatly entertained by all the ships in this movie. The Yoruichi x Soi Fong scene (with a splash of Urahara!) made me laugh and laugh. YoruSoi, HisanaByakuya, RenIchi, RenIchiRuki... fun <3

The voice actors have always been my favorite part of the Bleach anime, and the only thing that the anime has that I wish the manga had. I adore Orikasa, and Morita is the sweetest thing, that fanboy, with his shaking voice.

I didn't think that the fight between Ichigo and Dark Rukia was too short, exactly (though I could've watched it for a year). Mostly, I could tell that a lot of budget went there - I was impressed with the animation and choreography for it, fast and well-done.

Though I kept thinking, won't Rukia's feet be bleeding later? Ow.

* The reason everyone forgets Ichigo is because the SS people all know him through Rukia, and they forget Rukia.... but it never occurs to him to wonder why Urahara still knows him. GJ, Ichigo.
Because, the truth that Urahara didn't know Ichigo through Rukia, but rather Ichigo's father, Isshin. So he remembered.

* Kon never forgets Rukia, Ichigo forgets her for a few minutes. They are the only people to properly remember Rukia throughout the entire film. Renji gets hazy flashbacks, but still can't properly identify her by the end.
LOL how much I loved they angst, both Ichigo and Renji, also the fact that Renji didn't remember anything by his head, but went with his gut anyway to a stranger that kept calling his first name, kept setting him up with an unknown girl by telling him call out her name a thousand times XD and kept telling him about his forgetful Bankai. (I love Zabimaru's role in this movie)

* The 6th division apparently practices using zanpakuto for traveling. SENBONZAKURA WARP TUNNEL & Zabimaru the RIDE. It's like Bleachland.
This comment cracks me up. I was used with Zabimaru, but Senbonzakura way of transportation. LOL. Bya-kun didn't want anything to mess with his scaft at all.

* Where the hell did Yachiru go while Kenpachi was frozen by white goo? She certainly comes back quickly.
I LOL Kenpachi random moment in the opening, the middle part and the end XD So is random Yachiru. I guess with him, being remember or not didn't really matter, so the producers decided to freeze him all the way to the fight with the goo XD

- I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT KIRA (who didn't appear) UNTIL I SEE HIS ZANKAPUTO IN THE ENDING CREDIT.
- IT'S WORSE THAT I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT MOMO (who also did the same act as Kira) UNTIL NOW.
- Beside the shippyness, I think the movie is decent enough for non IchiRuki shipper. I was satisfied everything until the end.
- The reason that Urahara wore the captain's robe, maybe he wanted to prevent attack from SS when he went there in case that everybody in SS didn't remember him either, just like the way they forgot Ichigo through Rukia, maybe they might be forgot him too... through Mayuri. Also a strange man with a hat and a cane walking in getta around Seireitei is very SUSPICIOUS to other unamed shinigami. A looking captain alike would be better.
- Oh my the shoujo eyelashes showdown between Ichigo and Byakuya made me all most sput all of my drink. Byakuya is fine, but Ichigo is almost creeping my skin. Not sure if I want to cry or laugh anymore. And they kept adding that eyelashed to him randomly.
- ONE RESPECT FOR KON. You're the shadow hero of this movie.

That's all for now. I'll watch it again and find out more to comment :)
SimHumansimhuman on October 4th, 2009 05:31 pm (UTC)
Came expecting another OK Bleach movie with some nice IchiRuki thrown in, left with a new winner for favorite Shounen Jump movie regardless of shipping.

- The bukkake Cthulhu monster was kind of ridiculous, but it gave an excuse to have the captains wrecking things with a high budget, so I don't care!
- Shoujo eyelashes or not, the animation overall was fantastic. Did anyone else notice that Byakuya taking the book off the shelf seemed to be the best-animated three seconds of the movie?
- I was incoherently cheering when Captain Robe Urahara showed up!
- Please tell me I'm not the only one who thought the ending (before the IchiRuki conversation) was really sad.
SimHumansimhuman on October 4th, 2009 05:37 pm (UTC)
And I forgot a couple of things.
- LOL at Yamamoto immediately calling Rukia transferring her powers "a serious crime"! Lawful Stupid yet again. I also laughed at hearing the line about Soul Society being in grave danger again like half the filler/movie stories.
- More incoherent cheering when Kenpachi's eyepatch came off.
- Bleach: The Property Destruction.

<< These are SO true! It's amazing how shinigamis can get light-speed-back-rides and black (pink, in this case) holes...

And the IchiRukiness! *__* I loved Likos64 post, I didn't know about their character songs! I'll download them instantly!! @_@

This movie was really good! At least, it's the best Bleach movie. =)
Kylarakarenai on October 5th, 2009 01:10 am (UTC)
The character songs are SO sweet, and if you look carefully, their lyrics match. Three songs altogether, Rukia's "Echoes", Ichigo's "Unchangeable Word", and their duet, "Glow", which Sony even advertised as, I think, an "R&B love ballad" XD I love them.

And yes, while this may not be a Ghibli movie or something, I thought it was by far the best of the three movies.

Fade To Black: The One Where Marshmallow Cthulhu Destroys Soul Society.

I was disappointed, really. Every time the movie seemed to be getting close to a decent conversation about "I'm trying to find Rukia because" and "You should be trying to find Rukia because", someone jumped on Ichigo shouting about "STOP USING MY FIRST NAME" or "YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE PTERODACTYLS BREAKING INTO RUKONGAI" or something like that. That said- I did like Ichigo's flashbacks. And Byakuya's flashbacks. And the giant action scenes at the end were good fun. Nice to see Ukitake and Shunsui do stuff after being ignored for two movies.

KT should influence the movies more often. The Ichigo-and-Rukia stuff made up the best scenes in all the movies so far.
ExMachinar4r3truffle on October 6th, 2009 02:05 am (UTC)
Definitely the most enjoyable of the Bleach movies so far~ Yeah, the coloring and design of the Cthulhu monster was... unfortunate, to say the least, but the animation was great. Best fight choreography and so much pretty. <3

I really liked the reincarnation talk and IchiRuki - with years focusing on fights or Hueco Mundo, it's nice to get a reminder that this series in fact deals with the afterlife. :P Just a nice refresher course on the themes and dynamics that made me interested in Bleach in the first place.
>Kat<: IchiRukitanya_lilac on October 6th, 2009 02:40 pm (UTC)
That sixteen second scene in the middle of the film, about Rukia drawing the pictures and making her coded note for Ichigo to see later on just completely stole my heart. Like woah. It was just a really nice, intimate moment... that left me feeling a little like a voyeur for some weird reason

I have not been able to shut up about this film for the past hour and a half since watching it, and I expect that will continue... today (after six hours of sleep. Oh yes.).
Kylarakarenai on October 6th, 2009 05:27 pm (UTC)
That is my favorite scene in the whole movie. There is something VERY intimate about it, isn't it? I hadn't thought of it voyeuristically, though, since it's so much from Ichi's perspective, her smile and her teasing. Oh ;_;

Yeah, I love this movie.
