Grimmjow wasn't announced as dead. And neither was Ulquiorra according to Kubo. Notice they are the only two that are featured as of now that are hollow. No mention of Starrk or Nnoitra and co. because the two; Grimm and Ulq. are the most popular and their existence isn't known. Makes sense to me. Not a DBZ rip off. It's a concept Kubo hinted at before. Why would it be a DBZ ripoff if he had the concept of hell before? It's like saying no one can go and use the 'hell' theme because it was in a DBZ movie.
I don't think Bleach is a ripoff of DBZ. There's something called great minds think alike. Besides, Kubo himself has said that he doesn't read manga much at all.
but, the 4th movie sounds promising, and no real bullcrap story this time. i thought Hueco Mundo was "hell" in the Bleach world, but whatever you can sell to make sense works for me.
i wasent calling it a full rip off just it strange how the lastest arc is like the cell saga n now we have this...i rather kubo would have done hell himself in the manga then just a cash in movie. n no just because it hell i dont jump to saying dbz rip off ( i not a major fan off DBZ anyway) just pointing out how there a alot of stuff taken from it at the moment...and it more than strange that the 2 most popular epsada seems to be part of this n cell n frieza where popular at the time the DBZ film alot of strange coincidences really

The name of the movie is officially Bleach: Jigoku-Hen and the anime will open with a trailer starting July 31.
Kubo is personally overseeing the production of the story and the configuration of hell as well as his characters....
It might not be canon,but seeing how many chapters will pass until december the trailer might show some good stuff that will be introduced in the manga very soon...
Overseeing the story? Wasn't that what was said last time? And the last movie was abysmal. I'm not holding my breath for this one, though the Hell bit does sound intriguing.
You have to admit, a movie about Hell and the possibility of bringing back Ichigo's former Arrancar rivals sounds much more interesting than "Ichigo and co. going to Soul Society and teaming up with Shinigami to defeat generic psychopath #4."
Ichigo and co? Since when?
Also Grimmjaw fine. Ulquiorra however had his character raped hard at his end and his fight was terrible. Let him stay dead. I shudder to think how he could be ruined further. Harribel or Starrk are far higher up in the need to be brought back category than he'd ever be, and at least their deaths can be more arguable.
Though at least this movie sounds like it has more than one or two villains, which was a problem in the last two. >>
How is this a DBZ ripoff? All you know is that it is in hell and Grimm and Ulqui are in it that hardly means anything. The movies are not canon so for all you know this could take place between the Arrancar arc and the Hueco Mundo arc. Even if it doesn't take place then Ulquiorra wasn't sent to hell or we would've seen the gates after he was killed and Grimmjow was still alive the last time we saw him.
ichigo and co wasnt ichigo going R2 in this movie and has to be stop brought back by hes friends so id ont think there gonna be any ichigo and co against hell its probably ichigo and hell against SS.co
