The Bleach Live Action Motion Picture by Warner Brothers Japan simply exposed visuals of the Gotei 13’s Sixth Division Captain, Byakuya Kuchiki, in addition to his lieutenant Renji Abarai. Ichigo Kurosaki’s school schoolmate Uryu Ishida has actually also been revealed.
Ishida is played by 24-year-old star Ryo Yoshizawa. Byakuya is played by Takamasa Ishihara, a 36-year old singer/songwriter/guitarist much better known by his stage name Miyavi. Renji is played by 26-year old actor Taichi Saotome.
The Bleach Live Action Movie, based upon the manga by Title Kubo, was very first revealed back in 2012. It will cover the very first 8 volumes(or 70 chapters)of the manga. Principal shooting for the movie happened in between September to November of 2016, suggesting there are a lot of special impacts and other post-production work associated with the movie. The movie is set to launch on July 20, 2018 in Japan.The primary character, Ichigo Kurosaki, is played by a 24-year-old actor called Sota Fukushi.
Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper who offered Ichigo her power, is played by 20-year-old actress Hana Sugisaki. Sugisaki says,”In order to play Rukia, who is a powerful and pure Soul Reaper, I read the initial manga over and over once again and also saw the anime. I analyzed Rukia in my own way to get ready for the character. Because I have currently dealt with Fukushi-san in some other movies, I felt relieved from the first day of the shooting. While Ichigo and Rukia are human and death characters in this story, I believed they have hearts, after going through the screenplay. I fell in love with them whose existences are supporting each other and ending up being stronger. I believe I had the ability to feel that method due to the fact that Fukushi-san was with me. I think the relationship between the 2 that I in fact felt at the sets will undoubtedly reach the hearts of this film’s audience.”Below are trailers for the movie and visuals of both Fukushi as Ichigo and Sugisaki as Rukia.
