The latest teaser for the upcoming film shows how Ichigo was forced to become a shinigami after a ghostly hollow creature runs rampant in his neighborhood. Adopting his new shinigami powers from an injured Rukia, Ichigo slays the hollow kicking off the macabre Bleach saga. Set to open in Japan on July 20 with a wider release to follow, the live action Bleach adaptation is set to follow the original manga series’ first “Substitute Shinigami Arc,” which ran from its first to eighth volume.
Watch Ichigo become a shinigami and take down his first hollow in the new trailer above and let us know what you think.
