Bleach The Sealed Sword Frenzy... well. It's a good thing I didn't expect much from this. There's nothing wrong with it, I just deem it a waste of time. There’s absolutely no point in this. It does show what Bleach is about and everything, but the movie does that so much better.
The animation is pretty much what you'd expect from watching bleach. It's nice and solid, making effects stand out more than anything else. The background can look shady at certain points but, its not entirely noticeable or annoying for that matter.
The characters, well... there’s nothing new in this area aside from the enemy, but he's hardly worth praise. I mean, you see him for like five minutes and you don't see him ever again.
The music is pretty much the same as the series. Personally I've never ever enjoyed the OST of Bleach. In my opinion the OST continues to just irritate me as it is noticeable, but not once has it been able to capture the emotions and can actually destroy the environment the moment the music is played.
It's not exactly a complete waste of time and, it's not exactly like you’re going to waste a lot of time. If you’re a big Bleach fan you won't regret this in no way what so ever because it's pretty much the same as the series. I didn't enjoy this, but I recommend this to the big Bleach fans.

This is just a self-contained OVA which showcases what bleach is all about: Weird (but kinda cool) guys with swords fighting each other and destroying threats to mankind. Nothing fancy, nothing too surprising. As such, the OVA develops predictably and tosses all-time favorite bleach characters all over the place, some rather inconsequentially and are just there or for the sake of comic relief. Storyline freaks might not be too thrilled with this one; it fits nowhere in the larger contexts of either the manga or the TV series, but that also means that the OVA itself is pretty accessible to new audiences and easy to understand.
Longtime Bleach fans are bound to be pleased; the OVA has lots of the kickass action that other incarnations have, and the aforementioned return of some characters is bound to please audiences. Unfortunately, by taking this rather conservative approach, the OVA doesn't break any new ground, the story and outcome are straightforward and predictable and there are no real surprises in it, aside maybe for the nature of the villain of the occasion but that is a minor one. Even the oh-so-awesome final battle is practically a frame-by-frame rehash of one of the battles in the TV series' Soul Society Arc. Character development is nonexistent, given that there is little time and too many characters to work with. Nevertheless, the OVA does an effective job at establishing who is who, something that old fans and newcomers alike will appreciate, but for backstory and more info one has to refer to either the TV series or the manga.
In terms of art and animation, the quality of the OVA is rather high. It does give out a couple of times, but is pretty good overall. Same goes for the music and sound effects. Nothing to rave about, but nothing to criticize either.
This OVA is targeted at longtime bleach fans and newcomers hoping to get a general taste of Bleach. That in itself is acceptable, but The Sealed Sword Frenzy has little new to offer and is probably nothing you'll regret missing if you haven't seen it yet. Not like you'll regret seeing it either, for it does its job competently and it is entertaining, but if you're looking for some real excitement without that "more of the same" flavor, better look somewhere else.
I was gonna give this a lower rating, but the entertainment factor bumps it up to 7/10.

This one is no suprise to the bleach series in that it delivers quality audio to every scene and makes you aware of everything that is going on.
This movie allows you to get to know the characters even better. Also the villian is unique in many ways. As in the series every character is special and you can relate to someone.
The authors must have spent tons of time to come up with this story and this is easily seen with the excellent plot.
Every scene is enhaced with visuals that please the eyes in many ways. Also they use there moves often, so if you didn't know their abilities you did after watching this movie. Overall for visuals you cant beat them.
This is the best bleach movie to date and I look forward to reveiwing future movies.

My opinions are unchanged about Bleach: Probably the best shounen anime/manga there is!
It goes down. I'm not sure if I like this music in this installment. Fits well, but seems like something is missing. Sound is rather weak when it compares to the other Bleach series.
Oh yeah! They rock. It's like in any MMORPG or even a regular RPG. A bunch of strong little guys trying to beat an ancient powerhouse. Definitely got my respects.
Seems like the authors put a lot of work into it, and seemed to pay off. Again, got my respects in all aspects.
I just love the aura and the Bankai. Especially in this series, where it shows up so much! Besides that, there are also other areas of effects, such as detailed sprites, that deserve a mentioning.
In my opinion, if it weren't for the missing part music, this would been more than perfect. Even with that disapointing music, it would still be a perfect on my watch.

This version of Bleach is cool. I've seen it about 3 times and I still want to see it some more.
The characters are still the same but this time they fight a Shinigami that has been sealed away for a long time. There also appears the captains of the Shinigami squads who help Ichigo fight the fallen Shinigami.
It's pretty cool to listen to the music and that it matches with the anime quite well.
i like it alot because it involves Ichigo going to use Bankai in the human world and that was cool when he and the other shinigami fight.
This was a pretty good movie of Bleach and I hope you all can see it soon. Also I hope that they will make more anime like this.
