Warner Bros. Japan began streaming a behind-the-scenes video on Wednesday for the live-action film of Tite Kubo's Bleach manga. The video shows the creation of the 3D CG in the scene where Ichigo fights the Grand Fisher Hollow.
The full version of the video will be included in the Premium Edition of the film's Blu-ray Disc and DVD release in Japan on December 5.
The film sold 99,000 tickets for 135 million yen (about US$1.21 million) to rank #4 in its opening weekend after opening in Japan on July 20. The film held its North American premiere with two screenings on July 28 at the Japan Cuts Festival in New York. Netflix began streaming the film on September 14.
Shinsuke Satō (live-action Gantz, Gantz II: Perfect Answer films, Oblivion Island anime film) directed the film. [ALEXANDROS] performed the film's theme song "Mosquito Bite," as well as the featured song "MILK."
The story centers on the "Substitute Shinigami Arc," the manga's first arc that ran from its first to eighth volume.
Kubo launched Bleach in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2001, and ended it in August 2016. Viz Media published the manga in North America digitally in English as Shueisha published new chapters in Japan. Viz Media is also publishing the manga in print.
