Live action movie Bleach (ブリーチ) has just shared a visual of the main heroine, Rukia Kuchiki. In the movie, Rukia is portrayed by Hana Sugisaki.
The visual shows Rukia in both her battle attire (left) and her Zanpakuto, as well as her usual school uniform. Unlike the Rukia in anime, she has a pony tail here.
The progonist Kurosaki Ichigo is portrayed by Sota Fukushi. His poster has already been available and he can be seen briefly in this trailer.
Adapted from Tite Kubo’s (久保帶人) manga on Weekly Shonen Jump, the movie tells the story of how Kurosaki transforms from a high school student to a soul reaper as well as his encounter with another reaper, Rukia Kuchiki. The plot is based on the first 70 chapters of the manga, also known as The Substitute arc. The director is Shinsuke Sato, who has previously directed the Live action Gantz movie.
The movie will open 2018 Summer in Japan.
