Dragon Ball, Death Note, Rurouni Kenshin, Attack On Titan, Fullmetal Alchemist, Naruto, and now…Bleach. Tite Kubo’s long-running Shonen Jump Manga is on the verge of ending, with one chapter until it’s finale, but like any popular Manga…Bleach has tenure, and isn’t truly going away anytime soon.
Last week, within the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump, there featured a pre-announcement announcement that told readers about some “special news” regarding Bleach being revealed alongside the series’ final chapter. Well, as these things usually go, an early copy of the issue has been seen by a mysterious citizen of the internet with the capacity to “spill the beans” and thus said beans have indeed bee spilled: Bleach will be getting it’s own live-action movie adaptation.
Details like story, casting, director, and interesting factors of that kind have yet to be announced, the only thing we know about this film is that it will see a 2018 release. I’m sure that, once the news is made official, we will be hearing much more about the film’s intricacies, but for the moment you’ll just have to revel in the fact that Bleach will indeed be receiving the live-action adaptation treatment, that is…if this is good news to you.
Considering the stigma that surrounds live-action adaptations, I can’t imagine many of you out there are shaking in anticipation, but on that same note; I’m sure all you Bleach fans are now smiling in delight, and so you should be! After all…this is for you.
