posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
4th film in Tite Kubo's Bleach franchise opened in Japan in December 2010

Warner Home Video revealed in a newsletter on Wednesday that the fourth Bleach film, Bleach the Movie: Hell Verse (Bleach: Jigoku-hen), will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on December 4 in North America. The Blu-ray Disc will retail for US$24.98 and the DVD will retail for US$19.98.

Bleach manga creator Tite Kubo personally oversaw the production on the film, which opened in Japan in December 2010.

Warner Home Video describes the film as follows:

Hell - a place where beings that have committed mortal sins during their lifetime are sent. It is a realm where even Soul Reapers are forbidden to interfere. When a group of vicious Sinners plots to escape from this eternal prison, they discover that Substitute Soul Reaper Ichigo Kurosaki is the key to their freedom. The Sinners launch an attack and in the process kidnap Ichigo's younger sister Yuzu and take her to Hell. With the help of a mysterious man named Kokuto, Ichigo and his friends must now travel into the depths of Hell to stop the Sinners and save Yuzu, unaware that their actions could bring Hell to the World of the Living.

Viz Media released the third Bleach film, Bleach: Fade to Black - Kimi no Na o Yobu, in November 2011. Viz Media has also released the first two films.

The Warner Home Video newsletter also revealed that the 15th uncut Bleach boxset will go on sale on December 11 on DVD for US$44.82.
