Tite Kubo’s BLEACH manga series is getting a live-action movie, and for the first time ever, photos of actor Souta Fukushi have surfaced online, and they feature him donning that iconic black Shinigami costume, wielding his Zanpakutou, Zangetsu.
Online, people have made fun of the prop that seems to be Zangetsu, Ichigo’s large cleaver-like sword, however, many others have theorized that it might just be enhanced through CGI effects since the real thing might be too heavy for actor Souta Fukushi to carry.
As for Sota Fukushi himself, he previously starred in the live-action movie adaptation of the shoujo manga/anime series, Say I Love You, and also appeared in Kamen Rider Fourze. The announcement for the film was made after the 686th and final chapter of Tite Kubo’s manga ended. The announcement also stated that the live-action movie is slated for 2018.
