FOR THOSE WHO COULDN'T WAIT FOR THE BLEACH MOVIE 3 ENGLISH SUB HERE'S THE SUMMARY
WARNING IT MAY CONTAINS SPOILER!
In the beginning when the seireitei was destroyed Rukia comes in contact with Ane
Ane says, “I’ll erase your existence” to Rukia and the little brother (otouto) swings the sickle towards Rukia’s neck and carries her.
In the human world Ichigo senses something
Kon is moaning so he asks him what’s wrong and answers “I can’t solve Nee-san’s letter” (that letter similar to when she was getting taken back to SS)
Ichigo looks at the letter and says “What’s this?” “Don’t mock Nee-san’s artistic drawing” says Kon
Ichigo then says, “Who is that nee-san?” and craws inside his bed like if he didn’t know who Rukia was.
But closing his eyes, he remembers the memories about Rukia “Rukia..!”
He then hastily gets up and snatches the letter from Kon
“This drawing that is like a coach roach. There is a watermelon next to it so it must be a beetle” and he starts to decipherer the code
Rukia’s letter was “Because I have things to do I will head to Soul Society. Be back in a few days”
They immediately head to Urahara’s store but Urahara doesn’t remember Rukia. But a few days before he said a part of Seireitei was destroyed so that may have something to do with this. So he makes Ichigo and Kon head to Soul Society.
But before they go Urahara asks
"What is your relationship with you and that Rukia?"
Ichigo "That is..."
Ichigo "A precious nakama"
When Rukia woke up, she's wearing an indigo blue kimono. She's awake in small cabin in Inuzuri. There're sister and brother beside her, calling, "Rukia~!!" while jumping towards her.
Rukia, "Who are you?" Sister, "You don't remember?" Rukia felt that she must know about them. She asked their name but the sister answer they don't have. "Rukia, you promised to gave us names. In human world, kids
Rukia, you promised to give us names. In human world, kids got their names from their parents so will you tell us our name?"
Rukia looks at their face carefully and try to remember. In her Rukongai period (supposed to be with Renji but no Renji). Flashback was in the same small cabin, she remembers she was taking care of the young sister and brother.
Rukia, "Both of you still don't have names yet?"
Sister, almost crying, "We have been waiting for you to give us names, so please!"
"I have decided names for you," Rukia said, hugging them (just like a mother). Flashback until here.
"Both of you are twins from that time!" Rukia remembered, the twins are happy to hear that.
"Hurry and tell us our names!" the sister insisted but Rukia does not remember. She promised she'll remember. She asked, "What have I been doing all this time?" (Rukia doesn't remember her being a shinigami at all)
Both of them lied, "You have been sleeping, for a very long time,"
Ichigo in SS was fighting with different people (Shuuhei, Renji, Nii-sama). In Kuchiki's mansion, Ichigo to Nii-sama who's looking at Hisana's photo, "Rukia is your righteous sister, isn't she? You protected her even if it means to break the law." Then the shinigamis came and attacked him. Nii-sama told him, "Hisana was raised in Rukongai's 78th district: Inuzuri." Ichigo said thanks and leave.
In Inuzuri, Kon asked, "Is Nee-san really here?" But then he's able to confirmed it by the smell he called, "Ichigo!!" then was answered, "Aah, it's Rukia," by Ichigo. (the poster ask if Ichigo could tell Rukia by smell)
Rukia, on the top of the small cabin's roof, is looking at her childhood friends' tombs on the hill. Ichigo came, "You're allright." But Rukia does not remember him, "Who are you? I don't know you." Ichigo was shocked. He looked in so much pain, more than when all other shinigamis said pretty much the same thing to him. "It's me! Ichigo! Don't tell me you don't remember?!"
Rukia, "Kurosaki... Ichigo" She tries to remember and when she about to remember something, she collapsed while holding her head. Soon the twins came.
Ichigo, "Who are you guys?" The sister, "Shinigami! Enemy! Noooo!!" She hugged Rukia while saying that. Ichigo fought the brother for a while until after the three of them disappear.
Back in small cabin, Rukia asked the sister, "I know that person... Actually I was not sleeping all this time, right?" The sister answered, "I don't know! We came from far away place after all! We wanted to see Rukia so bad that we returned here, it took us 100 years to reach here!" Rukia, "That long.." She was about to remember something again, holding her head and painting in agony
She was about to remember something again, holding her head and painting in agony until she collapsed again. Then she was transported elsewhere by the twins.
Ichigo is sitting somewhere and looking depressed. Kon, "What's with that dispirited face?!"
Ichigo, "Tell me what to do then, Rukia, Renji, they're all the same. They don't remember me!" Kon, "You wish that at least Rukia remembers you, right?" Ichigo hit Kon.
Kon, "I misjudge you! So what if Rukia Nee-san doesn't remember you? When you're in the human world, you sensed Nee-san in danger! Even if no one else remember, you still remember her! You're still that much connected to Nee-san, you know! If you don't go then I'll go by myself!" Then he left.
From there Ichigo looks at Rukia’s letter and has a flashback
While Ichigo was reading a book Rukia is writing a letter while humming.
Ichigo “What are you doing?”
Rukia “Don’t look idiot”
Ichigo “No, I didn’t see anything”
Rukia “It’s a surprise for later”
End of flashback
Ichigo fights once again (Hitsugaya, Ikkaku, Yumichika)
Hitsugaya was winning and was about to give the final blow but Renji comes in
“You are the enemy. You are supposed to be the enemy. But my soul is saying you aren’t the enemy. So I will listen to my soul”
Ichigo calls out “Renji!” but Renji yells at him “Don’t call me by my first name”
But despite that Ichigo continues to call him by his first name
Then comes the captains (Ukitake, Kyouraku, Soi Fong)
“We won’t accept betrayals”
Then fight. They are in trouble. Then comes Urahara with the Captain’s uniform.
Yama “Why did you come here?”
Urahara “I knew the ways to come to Soul Society but I just restrained myself”
Yoruichi comes too
Urahara “Leave this place to us and quickly go! Rukia-san is in danger”
Ichigo says “Lets go Renji!” and runs away
Then Urahara’s talk show begins
In Mayuri's lab, the twins are doing something. Rukia awakes, "What are you planning to do?" The sister, "We're going to drive away those who want to snatch you away from us."
Rukia, "Don't! Do you know how much damage you will cause?!" Sister, "Why do you protect those shinigamis? Those shinigamis have taken everything from us! Our happiness, our sadness, even Rukia..." Then ja-jajaannnngg the
Then ja-jajaannnngg the wall was destroyed. Ichigo, Renji and Kon was standing right behind the wall. The sister who is holding her head then hugs Rukia.
Ichigo, "Rukia! Please remember! The you who I know, as a shinigami, is not a person who could abandon her own self away!"
Sister, "Stop it! Rukia does not wish for that!"
Rukia tries to calm down the sister. The sister hugs Rukia tighter, "No Rukia, don't make that face. Please don't remember your time as a shinigami."
Rukia was shocked, "Shinigami? So I was a shinigami?" The sister went 'oh noes'. Rukia looks at Ichigo, "Shinigami, let me hear it once again, your name."
Ichigo, "It's Kurosaki Ichigo." Then there's flashback of their meeting until the execution scene. Rukia, "Ichi...go... Ichigo...!"
At the view of Rukia who almost remembers, the sister cried a tear, "Nooooo!!! I won't forgive those who want to steal Rukia away from us! We're always together! Both of us and Rukia are one."
Brother, "But if that's the case, Rukia will be gone."
But the sister doesn't listen. The brother, "I understand, all of us are always together." Then the three of them are combined into one. Rukia screams. Then Dark Rukia appears. Her voice is like a combination of the twins.
Ichigo faces Renji who said, "You do something with that woman, that's the reason you came here, right?" Then Ichigo leaves other enemies to Renji and went to Dark Rukia's side.
Dark Rukia and Ichigo fights
But Ichigo doesn’t swing his sword down and just keep getting hit
“Remember it Rukia!” he yells but Rukia stays emotionless
Ane and Otouto’s voice “Cut him! Cut him and we will erase Rukia’s memory from his inside”
Ichigo “What are you saying? Even if Rukia doesn’t remember it I do so our bond can’t be erased by anyone!”
Dark Rukia then attacks him again and just as she is about to cut Ichigo’s head off Byakuya comes in
Using his kidou he stops Dark Rukia’s move
Byakuya “If what you are saying is true I will destroy that thing”
Renji then appears too
He looks at Dark Rukia and says “Her soul is turning into a hollow. Its too late now”
“She sacrificed herself and saved me…! Blah Blah Blah Me and Rukia are connected!”
Nii-sama, "Do as you wish," then he stepped out. Dark Rukia broke free from Rikujoukourou and move towards Ichigo. Ichigo thrust his zanpakutou to her, "Now it's my turn, Rukia. Now it's my turn to give you my power."
Instantly, Rukia is going in to Ichigo's inside. Dark Rukia is turning back to Rukia.
After that is Instantly, Rukia is going in to Ichigo's inside. Dark Rukia is turning back to Rukia.
Then Nii-sama and other shinigamis are doing something, bla bla.
Then Nii-sama and other shinigamis are doing something, bla bla.
Ichigo is holding Rukia's face as if hugging her. Rukia finally obtained her true self and about to move away from Ichigo, the poster said the way she brushed Ichigo's hand from her face is moe.
Quite at far, there're the injured twins.
Ichigo, "You can go..."
Rukia went to their place, "You guys."
They asked, "Rukia...? Are you Rukia?" then they grip her hand. Sister, "We got what we deserved, I guess." Then enter the twin's flashback.
There's voice of, "Help! Help me Rukia!" and Rukia's running form. On top of hill, the young twins are being attacked by shinigami. Rukia kicked the shinigami and saved the twins. She told them to run. The shinigami is being possessed by a hollow.
The shinigami turned to Rukia, "That power, I want, this body is useless now." The hollow tries to possess Rukia. Rukia's neck is being strangled, then the sister stab a short sword to hollow's feet. She shouted, "Release Rukia!" The shinigami threw her and chased the twins. Flashback until here.
Urahara discovered a strange hollow that parasite on other people to make their own reiatsu stronger? It cuts other people with the sickle they have and makes the other person lose their memory. But that only worked on people with weak reiatsu and can only make them lose their memory for a short term
So he figures there must be another power in order to make this many people forget their memories.
The shingami killed Otouto and Ane and did not think the hollow that parasite on other people died so they quickly went to HM
Because Otouto and Ane were able to manipulate dimension??? Even after they entered HM they were able to take over the Hollow’s will and gain their reiatsu thinking we want to see Rukia!
End of flashback
Ane “We’re no good. Both of us even though we ended”
Rukia “You haven’t ended yet… you came back again. I was happy… I was happy”
Ane “We don’t have anyone but Rukia!”
Rukia “That’s not true. You guys aren’t alone. Someone who is precious to you… they are always right next to you”
Ane and Otouto look at each other
Rukia “I remembered both your names”
Rukia “Homari and Shizuku… because both of you shinely live by supporting each other?
Ane “Homari” Otouto “Shizuku”
Homari “It’s a good name huh Shizuku?”
Shizuku “Homari Nee-san”
They both hold each other’s hand. Before they lose their consciousness both their hands goes through Rukia. Rukia rushes and grabs their hands
“Don’t! Don’t go! You two are…”
Rukia starts to cry
“Please answer me. I beg you!”
They both don’t wake up and Rukia starts to scream out crying. She cries while calling their name.
A few days after that? (maybe) Rukia is on top of the hill, looking at the letter the twins gave her. Then Ichigo enters.
Rukia, "...Are you going home?
Ichigo, "Aah, yeah."
Rukia, "I was saved by you again."
Ichigo, "You're the one who saved me at the first place-..."
Ichigo, "Rukia... maybe both of us were already connected way before we met. Bond is bla bla bla, it doesn't have relation with memories, bla bla. Me and you, that twins also, ...and you."
The wind blows, the letter in Rukia's hand flies. Then Ichigo, "Then I'll be going first, shinigami."
Rukia, "...It's not shinigami, it's Kuchiki Rukia."
Fight 1: Mayuri vs Kenpachi
The movie starts out with Mayuri in his lab working on something when the lights go off. He demands to know is there when he is attacked by someone who swings a staff with a red light at him. After a couple of seconds he comes to but doesn't remember anything about who he is or why he is there. He starts freaking out and when Nemu runs in to see what is wrong he gets even more freaked out. He draws his zanpaktou in it's shikai form and starts attacking his terminal. This causes the explosion which covers Seireitei in the white goo spirit particles (which expands in the form of snakes) which hardens to crystal.
Inside the lab the other scientists are still trying to calm Mayuri down while he swings randomly with his sword. He eventually hits the sword of Kenpachi who came to see what was going on. That sent Mayuri off the deep end and he started swinging his sword violently at Kenpachi, although Kenpachi is easily able to block and knock Mayuri back, When that happens Mayuri uses his bankai to attack Kenpachi. It pushes Kenpachi all the way out the lab where it gets struck by the white goo stuff. Kenpachi slices at the white goo stuff a couple of times as he falls but get stuck in it once he falls to the ground. Then we see it rapidly covering a vast amount of Seireitei as the shinigami seek shelter on higher ground.
Fight 2: Ichigo vs 7th squad and Renji
When Ichigo arrives into Soul Society he and Kon see all the crystal that had been formed. He goes searching and just as he finds Hisagi the two people who had attacked Rukia shortly after the explosion of spirit particles break out of Seireitei. They call forth part of the spirit particles (in the form of a snake again) which had seemed dormant and use it to burst out through the gate guarding Seireitei (that one that stopped Ichigo when he first tried to enter). However Ichigo, Hisagi and several members of the 7th squad are in the path of the snake. Hisagi tries to push it out of the way with Bakudou 62 Hyapporankan (the one that summons white poles) but fails to do so. As Hisagi and the fodde- I mean other shinigami dive out of the way Ichigo uses bankai and puts on his hollow mask to split the snake in half with Getsuga Tenshou.
Once they two siblings run off with Rukia (unknown to anyone else) Hisagi orders the shinigami to attack Ichigo, who they have no memory off. Ichigo easily dodges all the swings of the shinigami and bats and knocks their sword out of their hands. He he blocks several blows from Hisagi before running away into a side alley. There he hears Renji calling out Zabimaru's name and has to block Renji's attack. At this point he realises something is wrong and tries to run away further.
Just as he is about to get away Komamura jumps down infront of him and announces that he won't escape. Ichigo tries to leap over and away from him with the strength of bankai, and so in response Komamura summons his own massive bankai. Ichigo isn't able to get away from the huge sword and hand and has to use Getsuga Tenshou several times to knock it back. Komamura's bankai gets back up though and knocks Ichigo far away before crashing into the ground.
Fight 3: Ichgi versus Renji
Ichigo sneaks into the Kuchiki residence to talk to Byakuya. When he is there he is ambushed by the 6th squad and Renji attacks him in the garden as well. Ichigo uses bankai (with a cool blue power up effect that we haven't seen for a long time) to block the strikes from renji's released sword and asks Renji why he doesn't use bankai himself, to which Renji wonders why Ichigo said he had bankai. Ichigo tells him that he did it in order to save Rukia. After knocking back Renji in a style similar to how he first defeated Renji (which gives Renji a flashback) Byakuya tells Ichigo where Hisana grew up.
Later on we see Renji waking up in bed with bandages where he is confronted by Zabimaru who teases him for forgetting the fact that he is capable of activating bankai.
Fight 4: Ichigo versus Younger Brother
A fairly short one. After Ichigo catches up with Rukia the younger brother and elder sister appear before him. The younger brother uses some sort of teleportation to disappear and the reappear behind Ichigo who blocks the scythe with his zanpacktou. The younger brother then attemps to cut Ichigo using the same red glowing scythe that he used on Mayuri and Rukia as it starts to slip straight through Ichigo's sword. Ichigo however is able to dodge out of the way and then the two enemies leave with Rukia who has fallen unconscious.
Fight 5: Ichigo vs Hitsugaya and Ikkaku
What happens is that when Ichigo is moping around Rukongai after his encounter with Rukia and the other two, Kon gives him a pep talk and then Ichigo feels better. He's about to head out again when he notices the reiatsu of Hitsugaya, Ikkaku, and Yumichika standing behind him on some tall rocks.
They are surprised that Ichigo knows all of their names, and demand to know who he is. Ichigo replies that he is the Shinigami Daiko Kurosaki Ichigo. Ikkaku starts attacking Ichigo but Ichigo is able to block all his strikes easily, surprising Ikkaku. As Ikkaku isn't able to get past Ichigo's defenses Hitsugaya takes over the fight. He demands to know who Ichigo is once again and when Ichigo replies with his name Hitsugaya responds that he doesn't remember that. They trade a couple of blows before Hitsugaya knocks Ichigo into the air. Hitsugaya then uses Bakudou 63 Sajo Sabaku (the one that surround the enemy with a huge yellow chain) to bind Ichigo to a tree. He is about to hit Ichigo with his released shikai when Renji's zanpacktou comes in and stops it.
When Yamamoto and the other captains (Kyoraku, Ukitake and Soifon) arrive they order the special forces to attack Ichigo. Just as the special forces do Urahara jumps in and uses Benihime red energy attack to stop all of the special forces troops and cracks most of their swords. Soifon runs in to attack but is stopped by Yoruichi.
He tells Ichigo and Renji to go off and find Rukia, while he explains what occured to all the other captains present why they forgot Rukia and Ichigo. The cause being a hollow they found which causes people to forget their memories of a person, the two people with Rukia gained control over that hollows power. The reason why they forgot Rukia and Ichigo while not forgetting Mayuri is because keeps a backup brain in case of emergencies. Since Rukia was the one who gave Ichigo his shinigami powers initally when they forgot Rukia they forgot Ichigo as well.
Fight 6: Ichigo and Renji vs falling structures
Without having anyway to find her Ichigo and Renji resort to the apparently dangerous method of searching for spirit threads. This was the method that Ichigo used waaaay back in the early part of the series when he needed to find Chad. They found Rukia heading towards Mayuri's lab that had been caught in the explosion at the beginning of the movie.
As Ichigo and Renji run towards the lab the elder sister gets angry at how Rukia was starting to remember her being a shinigami. She sends out black/purple bolts of energy that teleport the structures that they hit, dumping them over other parts of Seireitei. As Ichigo and Renji run along a pathway a huge chunk of masonry is teleported right on top of a huge arch that was just infront of them. As the arch falls towards them Renji tells Ichigo to leave it to him and uses shikai to knock some of the parts away.
It seems like he is going to be overwhelmed and Ichigo tells Renji to watch out, to which Renji replies that he had told Ichigo to leave it to him before calling out bankai. He swats all of the falling pieces of buildings away and gets Ichigo to grab onto the snakes head before flying them towards the tower at top speed. As they approach the tower another huge piece of building appears infront of them. Ichigo activates bankai allowing them to pass through while a giant explosion destroys the masonry behind them.
Fight 7: Yamamoto, Kyoraku, Ukitake, Hitsugaya, Kenpachi, Soifon, Yoruichi, Urahara, Byakuya, Matsumoto, Ikkaku, Yumichika, Hisagi, 1st Squad VC (does anyone even know his name?) vs Big Spirit Particle Monster
When Ichigo and Renji arrive at the lab they cause Rukia to fully regain her memories about being a shinigami. This enrages the two siblings who both come together and merge with Rukia to form Dark Rukia. They attack the lab and cause an even larger explosion inside than before. The roof of the lab is covered in the white goo spirit particles which form a huge platform. The sky starts to darken and the white goo spirit particles start to coalesce into a huge monster with 5 big eyes running down it's front, several huge arms that it appears to be holding onto the sky with and multiple smaller tentacles with mouths. The mouths start belching out more of the white goo which covers more of Seireitei.
Matsumoto and Hisagi are standing nearby and witness this unable to do anything but run. As they do Hitsugaya, Ikkaku and Yumichika run up and rally them. All of the other captains and vice captains who had been there with Urahara appear a short distance away. The monster sends out a mouth to fire a huge blast of white goo with blue energy directly at them but it is stopped by Yamamoto.
He then shunpos out of his captains haori and into the air before releasing Ryuujinjakka sending forth a huge burst of flame that completely severs one of the monsters huge arms from it's body. He then gives the order to attack. All of the other shinigami shunpo in to attack the monster.
Kyoraku and Ukitake land on top of seperate but nearby buildings. They then both release their zanpacktou, Kyoraku has a cool wind blowing the dust around him thing that makes him look totally cool. They both move forward to attack the numerous snake heads that are coming towards them. Both of the slice the snake heads apart continually moving forward. A huge tentacle with a mouth appears and attacks them both. For a moment it appears as if they have both disappeared before the tentacle breaks down, sliced in about 20 different pieces.
Yoruichi and Soifon attack a different part of the monster. Soifon uses Shunko and directly attacks one of the huge tentacles, causing it to break out in a mass of bubbles before being destroyed utterly. Yoruichi and Soifon continue to move further up the monster when another large tentacle mouth catch Soifon off her guard. Yoruichi tries to make it intime but fails, and just as Soifon is swallowed into the mouth a voice calls out "Sing, Benihime" and a red blast of energy cuts the mouth in two. Yoruichi catches Soifon as she falls causing Soifon to blush.
Hitsugaya and the other with him launch their attack. Hitsugaya uses Hyorinmaru to freeze a whole heap of smaller snake like tentacles to freeze and then break apart. Matsumoto uses Haineko like a dust storm shredding all of the tentacles that enter it. It is a particular shock when Hisagi uses his shikai. It appears as though he was just going to attack it with his unreleased zanpacktou when he suddenly calls out "Reap, Kazeshini". You see a mass of speedlines in the centre of the screen (similar to how it is in this page) and then Kazeshini spinning down before Hisagi catches him, basically how it looks like in the manga chapter, except you then see the tentacles falling behind cut up into pieces (and with probably far better animation). This was a particularly cool part of the movie for me since I wasn't expecting it at all.
However shortly after this the monster sends out even more tentacles which catches them unaware. Matsumoto, Hisagi, and Yumichika are swept off their feet while Ikkaku is knocked through a wall. It looks like the monster is just about to attack him again when he feels a familiar reiatsu. Kenpachi's reiatsu breaks through all the crystal and clears up part of the sky as it flows up. He jumps out without the eyepatch and starts slashing at the monster, even jumping up to one of the higher arms.
Urahara, Yoruichi, Soifon, Kyoraku, and Ukitake are regrouping since they are unable to break through the monster to where Ichigo is. Byakuya shows up and uses shikai to create a path that allows him to travel through to Ichigo. The other captains leave it to him and just after he leaves a large group of tentacle mouths break through the surface underneath them. They are just about to cover the captains in white goo when Hitsugaya flies in and freezes all the goo and tentacles as well.
The captains redouble their assault, Urahara deciding that he should fight seriously as well. He uses Benihime to form a shield which he is able to hide behind while one of the tentacle mouths attacks him, then while behind the shield he sends out masses of bolts of energy that shred the tentacles. Since Kubo was involved in the production of the movie I think we can take it as canon that that is Urahara's fighting style. Urahara had a much bigger part in this movie than the previous 2 and he doesn't disappoint.
Fight 8: Ichigo, Renji, and Byakuya, vs Dark Rukia and more white goo monsters
While the captains have been fighting the huge monster Renji has been using bankai to keep a bunch of flying snake like creatures at bay. Byakuya shows up infront of him and uses bankai to destroy all the remaining snake creatures.
The two siblings in control of Rukia attack Ichigo with the intent of killing him. With her scythe Dark Rukia is capable of moving at speeds that even Ichigo has some trouble with. She stabs at him with the sharp end of the scythe multiple times and swings with the main blade. Ichigo however only attempts to block her swings and not strike back. They trade several blows in this way. Eventually Dark Rukia teleports away for a few moments only to teleport back in with her scythe held at Ichigo's throat. Just as he is about to be decapitated Byakuya stops her with Bakudou 61 Rikudou Kourou.
Dark Rukia gets even darker as she tries to break out of the spell. Ichigo resolves to save her by giving her his shinigami powers the way she gave him hers. Once Dark Rukia breaks out of the spell she and Ichigo charge each other with auras swirling. Ichigo stabs her through the heart and transfers his powers to her, breaking her out of the possession and we see her shinigami uniform return, while the hollow that was possessing her is forced out and destroyed.
The big monster thing dies and the sky clears and then Rukia has her goodbye chat with the two siblings.
