In japan. But this is the same country where almost every subsequent transformers series after the original had a protagonist other than Optimus Prime so who cares what they think regarding what will do well in the west. This bleach movie is just a bad idea altogether. Wouldn't matter if it was the most popular manga in japan (One Piece) making a US live action is just a joke. Like others said they have had Akira for years now and nothing has come out it. Also who can't help but remember the supposed live action for NGE.
I may not like Bleach (though the first 2 arcs were ok), but I feel bad for the fans that didn't want this b/c I know what it's like when my most fav anime series Dragonball/Z got raped by Hollywood (and I watched it all with an open mind but just couldn't like it).
like Akira, why even bother calling it by the same name, when it will be shit all different. A nobody staff looking for something to butcher. I'm sick of adaptions getting a bad name. Screw film industry i hope they shut down
'"I've always been a huge fan of 'Bleach' and have great respect for its creator Kubo and the truly original and amazing world he has created in this manga," said Segal...'
Lol... That's why Bleach almost didn't get serialized for being to similar to Yu Yu Hakusho --because it was so original-- right?
Looks like somebody doesn't read enough manga, and I ain't talkin' about myself.
I hope that if it's going to be crap it will at least be funny. The Dragonball movie was entertaining because I couldn't stop laughing at how bad it was. That's at least better than being both bad and boring... right?
I think I see why the anime is ending now. Might as well fuck it up beyond recognition with a shit live action film. Honestly since when have live action adapted anime's been successful? I have had thought Hollywood would have learned from the Dragon Ball Z live action film.
I want to see the disappointed loook of my friend's face when she sees this. :D
But I thought we all agreed that Hollygood should only do seinen/josei because it's less likely for them to kill it instead of all these action/adventure/comedy/fantasy shounen series they are currently only aiming for.
idk at least they're adopting stuff that's already shit, I guess. That way they can't really ruin it.

I'm not even hoping it will be "good" good, because realistically they can't do it justice due to meddling executives with a cynical view of what Americans like driven by concerns over the almighty dollar. At this point I'm wishing for anime adaptations by Hollywood to be the "so bad it's good" kind of good.
.. Not excited for this at all. In fact, animanga should stay as animanga. There's no need for a live action. It's impossible for its quality to be on par with the anime/manga's. AHH so frustrating. (」゜ロ゜)」
Man why just why, if you are going to make an anime into a live action movie at least choose something which would be good as a live action such as gundams. I mean the make the gundam all they would have to do is alter the designs of the transformers plus with the great story the gundam franchise has it would be the perfect anime to make into a live action.
