Who is Shiro Sagisu?

I'm looking forward to watching this. I hope they end with Byakuya and Renji showing up.

Who is Shiro Sagisu?

 

The principal composer of Evangelion soundtracks, and the one who made that solo acoustic guitar piece "Going Home" from the Bleach anime.

Honestly, the trailer didn't look too bad. It might be fun as they seem to have the style down right. I am curious how much the movie will cover. I guess up to the Grand Fisher fight maybe? That would seem like a good arc to cover for one movie.

 

Although I am curious if they will have the Ichigo's theme from the anime in the movie at any point after wale posted it.

A Bleach movie without "Number 1" blaring in the background during an epic part is not worth to watch, lol.

 

But I will give it a try since I don't really watch live-adaptations of anime--I mean for good reason, but I wasn't instantly repulsed when I watched this trailer  :P

Meh, can't say i'm surprised.. Why don't they make a movie like Gantz:O ? Sure, many characters were missing in that movie  but it was on point.
In my opinion good live adaptation moives from manga is an unattainable dream for now. Especially for manga such as Bleach, Naruto, One Piece etc.
Even Gantz (live adaptation) was mediocre-bad imo (although the cgi was pretty ok) and it has much smaller arcs.
l think the Quincy arc should be made in anime finally. And it could be even better than the manga (which was rushed as heck towards the end).
Who doesn't want to see Aizen haxing once again, Rukia going Bankai or Renji beating the life out of Mustache quincy? Or Komamura's  human(ish) form and Kyoraku as a pirate? 
What am l even talking about, we haven't even seen Yamamoto going bankai dang it.

I saw the movie today... I wasn't surprised about its quality since l had low expectations. I won't spoil anything but in my opinion it's skippable.

First of all we should mention the fights.

Most of them left me thoroughly disappointed and they were definitely not the strong point of the movie

I'd say none of the fights included was executed well for different reasons though!
Some fights dragged a lot and that fact cheapened them and didn't add anything emotionaly. 

Another fight was needlessly full of large scale destruction on buildings, cars etc and l sincerely believe that had that expensive scene to film been ommited,

they could do some other fights justice.
The choreography in the batttles with the hollows was pretty bad and it really seemed that the actors struggled to interact with the cgi-fest that was going on.
I saw potential but l reaffirmed my conviction that only a huge budget and great cgi can serve most manga justice. 
Otherwise Bleach is unadaptable due to its nature (Samurai in a modern world and invisible monsters passing by).
It was also sad that Sado and Inoue didn't have time to shine. One of the worst elements of the movie was the actor who played

Spoiler MAJOR SPOILER

 

As far as the costumes are concerned l really cringed at some of them.
Rukia's outfit and overall outlook seemed the most refined even though they didn't keep her iconic hairstyle.
I won't mention other characters that appear in the movie but l've seen some cosplayers that would give the movie's costume designers a run for their money.
Ichigo's shinigami haori (i'm not sure it's called a haori) really looked like a cheap knock-off. It's puzzling really since it's not the first time we see Samurai depictions in cinema.
I really expected a japanese movie to have at least great traditional outfits. 

There were things that worked though! Rukia and Ichigo's interactions were pretty good and l  also enjoyed Ishin, Karin and Yuzu despite their characteristics being different form the manga. I think they nailed Ishin's character and you could see the difference in Yuzu and Karin's personality. But they didn't have time to flesh out these characters...

Even Ichigo's guilt for his mother death was conveyed well. I must also add that the design of the swords we see are pretty acurrate to their manga counterparts.

I also really enojoyed the short scenes in Ichigo's class and i found the school uniforms pretty accurate.
His introduction though was priceless. They really nailed Ichigo's character in that scene and it's a sin that the movie didn't keep on that afterwards.
The flashbacks were also nice, l really liked the lighting in those used. However that wasn't the case for the rest of the movie.
The movie was pretty faithfull to the manga (at least up to a point).

Overall, l find that budget constraints, the duration of the film and the choice to cover too much story amounted to a disappoining movie.
There were some good nostalgia moments and character interactions but it was wasted potential. After all the movie wasn't even engaging.
A shame really.

The answer is no, but we already knew that. It wouldn't save the movie anyway  :P .

I think this movie is a step in the right direction. They didn't change the entire cast or dumb down the movie to make it appeal to a general audience.

 

I thought most of the actors were stiff. The hollows look great but the fighting of the hollows wasn't. I like it how they try to focus on the grandfisher but I wish they did more with the relationship between her and Ichigo. Instead of trying to set up for the SS arc. Byakuya was perfectly written. Renji and Rukia was on the stiff side.

 

They should have done more with orhimine and chad in this movie as well.

 

I think this was the best LA anime movie i can think of.
