The producers of the Bleach live-action film have been slowly introducing the cast, and they’ve finally got to some fan favorites! This new trailer introduces Kisuke Urahara, Yasutora “Chad” Sado, Orihime Inoue, and Ichigo’s parents.
Bleach, which is directed by Shinsuke Sato (I am a Hero), adapts the “Substitute Shinigami Arc.” This is the manga’s opening arc and focuses on Ichigo becoming an unofficial Soul Reaper after a wounded Rukia accidentally transfers all of her powers to him. With no way to get back to Soul Society, Rukia is forced to stay with Ichigo and teaches him about his newfound powers. The arc ran in the manga’s first eight volumes.
Bleach will open in Japanese theaters on July 20.
