90% of this movie is almost Anime perfect
15 September 2018 | by rick-429-633659See all my reviews

The characters look very similar to how they should look. Ichigo, Chad, Renji and Uryu are almost exactly as I picture them, though Anime tends to draw characters as more of a Japanese/European hybrid look. Byakuya was really close though I felt he needed to look a little more hardened and a few years older.

As far as the story, the first half is almost dead on with the Anime, it was really in the last 20 minutes did they change it up a lot ending things a little different. Ichigo's character starts off a little slow but by the end he becomes the hot headed, arrogant, skilled fighter we'd expect. Was really happy to see them go all in on the fights and effects. Was not really expecting to see Sabimaru roar.. though I wish I could have seen a live action bankai.

This was probably one of the best anime inspired live action movies I've watched. Would love to see a bigger budget sequel and do the soul society arc and see Ichigo fight all the captains. Also Netflix.. GET THIS AN ENGLISH DUB. It's ridiculous that you have it in like 6 languages but not English. All in all, if you are a fan of the Manga or anime, give this a watch. The costumes, props, character design and feeling of the movie is pretty accurate.
