Episode Notes
This movies takes after the events of the Soul Society.

Beyond a Thousand Nights is the English translation of Sen no yoru o koe te.

It was down to the point where there was less then 1 hour left for the world and the Soul Society, before collapsing.

The new white like creatures are called "Blanks".

Rukia's shikai is seen for the first time outside of the manga, and before it was shown in the anime.

Ichigo buys Senna ribbon, because she stole it from a store.

Ganryu group in the movie is called the "Dark Ones".

We see Soi Fong's ability of her Zanpakuto work.

Senna's zanpkaotu took the form of a spear during its shikai and could create controllable tornadoes.

September 5th, 2007 this movie went out onto DVD.

One of the taglines was Shinigami, Release Your Spirit (死神たちよ魂を解き放て,, Shinigami-tachi yo Tamashii wo Tokinate)

Another tagline was Shinigami, Protect the World. (死神たちよ、世界を護れ。, Shinigami-tachi yo, Sekai wo Mamore.)

The last tagline was One Hour Remains Until The World Crumbles. (世界崩壊まで残り一時間。, Sekai Houkai made Nokori Ichi-Jikan.)

Tessai draw a lot like Rukia.

Rukia is the first person to interrupt a Captain Meetings in Bleach.

First apperence of the Kido Cannon.

A person after the end of the credit had the same voice and same appearance of Senna. And Ichigo sort of seems to remember her.

Mirokumaru is a zanpakutō lost over 1,000 years ago, to a shinigami that vanished into the Valley of Screams.

Episode Goofs
This Movie also takes the same time frame as the Bount arc, but there are no Bount and the other Mod Souls.

In the Bount Arc, Ichigo wasn't able to do his bankai until the end of the Bount Arc in the Human World. But in this movie he was easily able to go bankai.

The second OAV also takes during the same time pace as the Bount arc and Movie. The time frame, isn't as ruined or mixed up. Still a goof having all three at the same time.
