The first teaser trailer for the live-action adaptation of Bleach is here, and offers a glimpse at the manga’s main protagonist, Ichigo Kurosaki, taking down a corrupt spirit.
The teaser, which is only 30 seconds long, doesn’t really reveal too much, but what we can see is that the movie will offer a similar visual style to the source material, as well as a look at Ichigo’s massive sword. There’s also a brief glimpse of a spirit, which looks pretty fantastic.
Bleach, which was introduced in 2001 in Shonen Jump, follows the adventures of Ichigo after he obtains the powers of a Shinigami. From here his role consists of protecting humans from evil spirits as well as being the guide to lost souls seeking salvation in the afterlife.
The series has since come to an end, but it looks like it’ll live on in this live-action adaptation… hopefully.
