For those excited for the live-action Bleach film (or at least interested in it), we have our first look at Rukia. Rukia is the first Shinigami or Soul Reaper that Ichigo Kurosaki meets and outside of the Soul Society arc, is pretty freaking awesome. She is the one that gives Ichigo Soul Reaper powers to start with (well, sort of) and I’m interested to see her in the new film. Rukia will be played by Hana Sugisaki and she looks great for the role. Yeah, her hair is a little long in back, but I’m ok with small details being changed in adaptations. I hope Sugisaki can portray Rukia well. With the way she explains how she got ready for the role, I’m not worried:
The film is currently scheduled to be released in Japan on July 20, 2018. I hope it’s able to make its way out here to the United States not too long after. I’d love to be able to watch it without going to questionable sources.
