'Bleach' Manga Series Gets Live-Action Movie in 2018

Recommended Posts

YaUMaWd.jpgThe final chapter of Bleach, which will be released in the 38th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shounen Jump magazine on August 22, has announced that there will be a live-action movie slated for 2018. Souta Fukushi will cast as Ichigo Kurosaki and Shinsuke Satou will direct the film.

Bleach has been drawn by Tite Kubo since August 2001, and will end with 74 compiled volumes. Volume 73 recently ranked 28th in Oricon's weekly manga sales for July 18 - 24, selling 26,312 copies and adding up to a total of 387,608 copies sold. The manga was also adapted into a 366-episode TV anime, which was produced by Studio Pierrot and broadcast between October 2004 and March 2012. In addition to the TV anime, four anime movies were released, as well as two Jump Festa specials.

Viz Media has licensed the manga for North American release since 2004, under their Shounen Jump label, with 3-in-1 omnibus editions released since 2007. The 67th volume of the series was released in July.

i'm looking forward to the live action movie. for one thing, it's another case of a Main Kamen Rider(Fourze for Ichigo) playing a popular Shonen Manga character. the first was Rurounin Kenshin live action's Satou Takeru. (He was 2007's Den-O.)
