Why It Rocks

  1. Amazing animation.  
  2. The new character this movie introduces, Senna, is incredibly interesting, likable, and sympathetic.  She's become so popular among the fanbase that many Bleach fans have voiced their interest in Kubo making her canon within the manga, which will sadly never happen due to the manga having ended.  
  3. Great voice acting in both sub and dub.  
  4. Considering that Bleach has never really focused on romance, it's very surprising that the relationship between Senna and Ichigo is as emotionally grippnig and believable as it is.  
  5. Very appealing art style and character designs.  
  6. The storyline involving the Blanks and the Valley of Screams is one of the most intriuging that Bleach has ever exhibited.  
  7. Excellent soundtrack.  
  8. The end of the movie is very tragic and emotionally devastating, yet also appropriate given the plot and the pacing.  
  9. Good pacing.  

Bad Qualities

  1. The villains in the movie are kind of one dimensional.  

Reception

Bleach The Movie:  Memories of Nobody has a 3/5 on Letterboxd, a 7.3/10 on the International Movie Database (IMDB), a 7.55/10 on MyAnimeList, a 4/5 on AnimePlanet, and a 73.39% community approval rating on Kitsu.
