Netflix Set to Remove Live-Action ‘Bleach’ Movie This Summer

Live-action Bleach Movie

Netflix’s live-action Bleach movie gained critical recognition, a feat few anime adaptations have achieved.
The adaptation was celebrated by Bleach fans for its faithful adherence to the manga, bolstered by impressive directing and acting.
While Bleach’s departure from Netflix is imminent, the series’ content is accessible on various other platforms. Moreover, Netflix is gearing up to premiere another live-action anime adaptation – One Piece.

Amidst a sea of anime live-action remakes, many of which failed to live up to their original source material, the live-action Bleach movie of 2018 broke the pattern, debuting on Netflix to critical applause. However, despite its well-received status, the live-action rendering of Tite Kubo’s famed anime series is due to depart from Netflix’s comprehensive library come August 18.

Anime live-action adaptations have exhibited a streak of successes and failures over recent years, with Netflix participating in its share of misfires, including the critically criticized adaptations of Cowboy Bebop in 2021 and Death Note in 2017. Despite this patchy history, the Sota Fukushi-led Bleach came forward as proof of successful anime live-action remakes. Yet, with its impending removal from Netflix on August 18, another jewel in the crown is set to be lost.

The Best Live-Action Yet – Bleach, as Endorsed by Long-Time Manga Aficionados

The live-action Bleach movie features Ichigo Kurosaki (played by Fukushi), who steps in as a replacement Soul Reaper after Rukia Kuchiki (portrayed by Hana Sugisaki) sustains a battle injury. The teenager, who possesses the unusual ability to see ghosts, is charged with battling malevolent spirits and aiding in the purification of lost souls, guiding them to the afterlife. With Kubo’s active involvement in the production, the movie gained commendation for its fidelity to the original manga. The direction was laudable, and the lead actor captured the essence of Ichigo Kurosaki exceptionally well.

While the live-action Bleach prepares for its exit from Netflix, fans can find solace in other Bleach content available across platforms like Hulu and Crunchyroll. In related news, the anime continues to release new episodes of the Thousand Years Blood War arc every Saturday.

Netflix is preparing for another live-action debut this year, with One Piece set to premiere on August 31. The cast includes Iñaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Mackenyu Arata as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji. Although it’s premature to predict One Piece’s performance once it arrives on the platform, fans have expressed initial apprehensions due to the history of subpar live-action adaptations. However, the series seems to have captured a good portion of the original manga’s charm.

Before it’s removed from Netflix’s catalog on August 18, seize the chance to watch the Bleach adaptation. The trailer can be viewed below.
