Bleach with more cleaning power!

Hell Verse is about a group of sinners from Hell that attempt to kidnap Ichigo's sisters in the hopes of luring Ichigo into Hell to break the chains that tie them to eternal damnation. Easiest one sentence synopsis I've ever given. Believe this is the 5th movie in the Bleach universe and it's set after the Aizen saga. It's not the best spot for someone to jump into the series at, but it's loads of action that keep you on the edge of your seat.
...what's there to say? It's Bleach! Got the good and the bad. The only bad in this one is that it follows the same formula as every other Bleach movie/series. New bad guy, power up, win. Also, it's all 1 on 1 battles. Everyone splits off to fight their own guy instead of teaming up.
That being said...Hell Verse is abso-freaking-lutely beautiful. Graphics on Blu-ray had me completely hooked. Everything was so smooth and fast-paced. Seems that they decided to use less blood here, though. Characters gush all over the place in the series, but it's a rarity even when stabbed in this one. Music, as always, is very good. Long running series like this commands hefty budgets for everything.
Extras with this are very lackluster. About 10 art sketches. Not even any previews except for Neon Alley. That's Viz for you, though.
Was a bit disappointed originally with Best Buy because I couldn't do a preorder and have it picked up in store, but my store ended up getting 4 copies of DVD and Blu-ray so that made my day. Definitely something BB should work on as I don't want to wait so long for delivery and/or pay $15 extra for quick shipping. Lost my preorder on Black Lagoon because of it.
