Senna Is The Only Good Thing About It
Filler is a dirty word among anime fans especially in regards to long running series such as Naruto, Bleach & One Piece. A filler usually occurs when the anime series runs dangerously close to the manga and instead of placing the series on hiatus while the artist catches up, a filler episode is put in place. A short and simple story to keep people happy however it doesn't help that most of them are rubbish. I often read better fanfics than some filler episodes.
Bleach: Memories of Nobody is one of these filler episodes apparently good enough to make it into a stand alone movie. The character of the day this time is a soul reaper named Senna who appears out of no where and starts destroying these white things with red hats which comes pretty close to the dub script in terms of explanation, speaking of which everything is explained by Urahara in which Senna is the key to merging and destroying the worlds of the living and the Soul Society. The enemies are very low key and don't really deliver any memorable performances equally the Soul Reapers don't do much but show off their attacks and leave the rest to Ichigo which pretty much happens a lot in more recent Bleach episodes. But I won't write off this film as bad as it's saved by the filler character Senna.
I've never known a filler character actually being interesting to watch and compared to the other females in Bleach is a million times more appealing. Senna is actually believable from when she acts normally to the point where she struggles to come to terms with her mixed up memories; her background story actually makes a lot of sense which in a show with as many terms as swords deserves credit but it does however lead me to a comment I used in my Sonic Chronicles review.
Now I don't know how much influence Tite Kubo had in making this movie but I start to worry when an anime filler is better than the actual manga much in the same way I worry about the fact that Bioware could write a better Sonic storyline than SonicTeam
