‘Bleach’ Live-Action Trailer Shows “Substitute Shinigami” Arc Action

The official website for the Bleach live-action film released a “full trailer” that announces all of the main cast members.

It was previously revealed that Sota Fukushi will star as Ichigo Kurosaki and Hana Sugisaki as Rukia Kuchiki. They will be joined by Ryo Yoshizawa as Uryu Ishida, Taichi Saotome as Renji Abarai, and MIYAVI as Byakuya Kuchiki.

The trailer also reveals that the rock band [ALEXANDROS] will perform the film’s theme song “Mosquito Bite” and the feature song “MILK.”


The movie, 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.
