OMG Please NO
I don't know
I smell "Dragonball Evoluion"-Part 2.
I mean Death Note, Ninja Scroll and Akira can be filmed as film adaptation with actors, because of their Stories.
But Bleach ? I don´t imagine how would the story like
I see I have posted in the wrong forum-section. Can someone of MH-Team switch the topic ?

I'm also smelling another one of Dragonball Evolution. I don't think live action for Bleach is good idea.
Didn't Kubo say somewhere that he'd never allow BLEACH to be turned into a live-action movie?
I just hate the approach on things like this being made into films. The movies are rubbish and it just seems like a money scheme more than anything.
I would rather a few more good animated movies.
I can't imagine how the actors would pronounce Japanese words like "shinigami", "zanpakutou" or "getsuga tenshou"
o right, they would probably translate all Japanese words and names
Does anyone know any good examples for successful/good reception Hollywood films that based on Japanese manga/anime series?
The main reason for I'm against Bleach Hollywood movie is that there are not much good examples for support it.
Warner Bros didn't have much luck with Speed Racer, though it did have a $120 million budget.
If Warner Bros is going to adapt something with that kinda budget it should be GANTZ
Bleach + live action = No, please and thank you.
I just don't see it working. Another Dragonball Evolution.
They should get Michael Bay to direct. lol
Oh please not a live action movie. DBZ Evolution was a disaster and I don't want to see Bleach turning into a live action movie. I can't find any Hollywood actor/actress to fill Ichigo or any other character's shoes. Even if its made, I will not watch it. I had my lesson from the past attempts.
Kubo did specify that, but he's in no real position to make the final decision on that. WSJ still owns distribution rights and if they can profit from a live action Bleach movie, they'll allow it.
personally, i'm with Kubo, Bleach is best left to anime and manga. manga mostly.
I don't see how this movie can even work without having previous knowledge of what Bleach is. It'd be lame if we get into the movie and Ichigo suddenly uses GT and bankai, because people that aren't familiar with the series wouldn't know what the hell is going on. A simple recap wouldn't cover all that.
Although, I doubt that a lot of people that aren't familiar with Bleach would even watch at all. Unlike DBZ, Bleach wasn't popularized during prime-time networking for kids. Remember Toonami? How it made anime famous in the US? Series such as Prince of Tennis, DBZ, Sailor Moon, Gundam Wing...they were all great, and were extremely popular in the US because kids back then like me watched em. Ever since Toonami got kicked off CN, anime has basically disappeared from prime-time hours, besides the occasional movie every couple of months.
I'm not even sure why I'm ranting like this, because I'd watch the movie regardless. It's just that I don't want to see critics rip the movie without actually understanding why it's bad, which is inevitable.
