"Bleach" manga series is getting a live-action film adaptation that will be directed by Shinsuke Sato. New set of images from the set were recently released causing a buzz over the web. Apparently, fans of the hit manga were disappointed with actor Sota Fukushi's costume as Ichigo Kurosaki.

In the photos snapped by fans that emerged online, Sota was dressed with the Garment of Dead souls or shihakusho. His clothes are similar to the illustrations from "Bleach" manga. However, fans believe that the production team could have made the costume better.

Fans even claimed that the costumes were comparable to cheap cosplays, AramaJapan reported. Additionally, there are also "Bleach" manga enthusiasts who are not happy about the whole of the film itself. This is because the manga series is known for supernatural elements which may not be given justice by the film adaptation.

There are also fans who are reportedly afraid that the "Bleach" movie adaptation will not be able to properly capture the explosive moves of Ichigo as a Soul Reaper. However, "Bleach" manga creator Tite Kubo already announced that he will be supporting the filmmakers throughout the making of the movie, ComicBook reported. He ensured that he will do what he can to assist with the live-action film to come up with a better movie adaptation that fans will appreciate.

Meanwhile, "Bleach" movie is expected to take on the story of Ichigo's early journey based on the sword that was depicted on the images. The giant sword apparently resembles Ichigo's old weapon before it underwent a number of transformations until it became a Bankai. However, no details have been confirmed regarding the storyline of the "Bleach" movie.

"Bleach" movie adaptation is slated to release in 2018. What do you think of the "Bleach" movie? Let us know your thought after checking "Bleach" manga final chapter below.
