I'm kind confused from the hell arc.
from what I see in the movie trailer, I think hell arc's events are between the hueco mundo fight and aizen fight.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Its definitely not post aizen fight cuz ichigo already lost his powers
but Isn't that impossible?

Ok here's my question. So those two espada are evil so they went to hell. Except look back to the early volume about hell. Didn't Rukia say that it's only the hollows that came from people that were evil in life that go to hell, and any evil actions as hollows don't matter because the shinigami weapon cleanses them? The espada are a combination of thousands or millions of hollows eaten by the strongest one. So unless these espada are made of entirely evil hollows, doesn't this mean that, since they still have their original strength, that thousands or millions of souls were unjustly sent to hell, trapped in the espada bodies?
This is one of those situations where you shouldn't think about it too much. Anime movies are usually never canon and they usually ignore rules from the source material.

Just because someone's head was chopped off doesn't mean they're dead. That's just silly.
