Kubo Tweets About HellVerse Bleach Movie 4!  

He's seen the whole thing! And Kubo-sensei tweeted about it today! A treat for the fanboys it seems! And I'm so looking forward to the animation! (Ishida!Ishida!Ishida in a mooooovie! *spazzes*)

Translation by mezzo_marinaio :


“I’ve retuuuurned! The movie was amazing! To be brief, it was aaaaaaal action!”

全編アクションって言っても、大抵のアクション映画ってアクション部分て半分くらいだったりするけど、今回の映画はまじでアクションじゃないシー ンが10分とか15分くらいしかありません。しかもアクションのクオリティが高い高い。アニメスタッフさんの苦労は尋常じゃなかったと思います。

“Though action movies are generally labelled like that, the action parts usually span about half of the movie… in this movie, though, the scenes that couldn’t be labelled ‘action’ must have been about 10-15 minutes at the most. Furthermore, the action quality was high, high. I think that the anime staff must have had some unusual trouble for this one.”


“At the beginning of the movie, there is a battle scene between Ichigo and Ulquiorra – which is basically a remake of their canon battle; it’s just a few minutes long, but I think those few minutes reached a level of perfection. The people who have even just a little interest in either Ichigo or Ulquiorra should definitely watch it.”

@norider1965 とんでもない!今回の映画は絵の力がものすごく大きいです!自分のやれたことなんてごくわずか。本当に、スタッフさん一人一人にお礼を言いたいくらいです。

“No way! This time, the movie had earth-shatteringly beautiful drawings! There is little to any difference with my own drawings. I’d really like to thank the movie staff one by one.”


“And then, what particularly impressed me this time was that they drew Ichigo – who is very hard to draw – very well, and made him cool-looking for the entire time. I was really happy about that. All the more because this time, Ichigo was set firmly at the centre of the story.”

ストーリー的には、これまでのBLEACHの映画って、BLEACHらしさはあるけど正直ジャンプっぽさは薄かったと思うんです。それが今回は BLEACH らしさをしっかり持ちつつも、いかにもジャンプ映画らしいストーリーと演出で、子供の頃にジャンプ映画を観た時のような気持ちになれました。

“Story-wise, I think that the Bleach movies up until now gave off a Bleach-like feeling, but their Jump-like essence was very sparse. This time, however – while the movie is firmly grounded in the spirit of Bleach – the story produced really gives off a feeling of being a typical Jump movie… so I was able to return to the emotions I felt when I saw Jump movies in my childhood.”

On another note, the merchandising for this movie is out of this world. I've found myself lusting for cork coasters and buttons and mousepads like never before, but ohhh I really really REALLY WANT THIS.

And don't forget:

THE DAY TO POST ENTRIES IN THE ISHIDA AND ORIHIME FANWORKS CONTEST IS TOMORROW, NOVEMBER 19.  See HERE for the original post. Please remember to put as the subject heading for your post THE TITLE OF WORK and its CATEGORY (FANART OR FANFIC). Please remember to tag your post ISHIHIME BIRTHDAY CONTEST.

You can start posting entries at Midnight CST, I suppose--I'm not strict. I do hope we get some entries even though some of you have said you're behind and will post later. Last night my daughter found my stash of pumpkin Pocky I was saving to send out with prizes this year and ATE IT ALL, LOL but I managed to deep-hide the Japanese milk caramels! In any event, I hope the new Bleach arc will inspire more fanworks all year long, not just for this contest, and that you won't need candies for incentives! I just like to throw candies into the air on my bday is all!

Oh wow, next week will be such a Thanksgiving treat--two Bleach chapters, a color page, the special freaky filler anime episode with kinky!maid Rukia and movie costume designer!Ishida and then news of the movie! Can 2011 be even better?!!

I'm going to watch the movie if only for the remake of the "Lust" arc. I miss Ulquiorra so badly. *sniffle*

yeah, the only reason i want to see the movie is the Ulquiorra battle. the rest of it looks pretty typical, random villain and cronies try to "take over the world/worlds/universe, giving plenty of screen time to popular characters as they do. glad to hear the animation is good though, bet the lust arc fight will look beautiful!

Is that shirt actually part of the merchandise? *0* They're really milking Ulquiorra. XD And since the Lust arc is being redone, makes sense for Ulquiorra merch and the UH stuff.

;0; Only seeing the movie for those few minuets. Gah Kubo...just bring him back already.

I really love the animation in the CM, great to hear that the quality seems to be consistent throughout the whole movie :D

That Ulqui shirt *A* Waaaaant! And agreed with what lovely_masoka said above; just let him come back already, Kubo!

Ahhh next week will be a good week for Bleach fans, I can't wait ♥~

Ichigo on model? Looking cool and not "kinda cool"? Pics or it didn't happen! XD

Wait so why is the Lust arc battle in the movie again?

_debbiechan_: Ichigo angsty_debbiechan_ on November 19th, 2010 09:34 am (UTC)

the lust arc is probably necessary exposition to explain why it's bad for Ichigo to go to HELL--because he can turn into this monster Hollow thing. Not everyone who sees the movie follows Bleach or follows it well. And the movie is all about Ichigo turning into IchiThing (and presumably dealing with subsequent issues? I hope! I hope! I hope it's just not ALL fighty fight!)

Thank you for all the info! And thanks for the translation to Mezzo!

I love that Ulquiorra t-shirt. It's really stylish.

So, it's not going to suck? Hmmm, maybe I'll try to get this one.
