Sota Fukushi Dressed As Ichigo Kurosaki


Sota Fukushi

As announced in an earlier post, Sota Fukushi is bringing the popular anime character Ichigo Kurosaki and Bleach to the big screen in a live-action film. Below are a couple of photos of Fukushi walking  through a Japanese shopping mall dressed as Ichigo.
The reason for the walk is unknown. It could be to stir up interest in the film or Fukushi could be going to lunch. Whatever the case, fans of Bleach have mixed reactions, some like it and some don't. However, lets end the high and mighty judgmental acts, this was just a simple walk through the mall, and it bears no weight on the overall storyline and quality of the film. Loyal fans of Bleach will be awaiting the film's release.



Bleach is being directed by Shinsuke Sato, who also directed I Am A Hero and the upcoming Death Note: Light Up the New World.

Choosing instead to live his life as a peaceful wanderer, Kenshin soon finds that the world around him is rapidly changing and not for the better. A sadistic drug lord, Kanryu, oppresses the people, poisoning them with opium and stealing what little they have left.  When this greed-driven monster threatens the beautiful kendo instructor Kaoru, Kenshin can no longer stand idly by. Together with his street fighter comrade Sanosuke, Kenshin sets his sights on a showdown with Kanryu and his deadly henchmen.

Story:

It's a peaceful day in Japan when a strange fountain of water erupts in the bay, causing panic to spread among government officials. At first, they suspect only volcanic activity, but one young executive dares to wonder if it may be something different - something alive. His worst nightmare comes to life when a massive, gilled monster emerges from the deep and begins tearing through the city, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. As the government scrambles to save the citizens, a rag-tag team of volunteers cuts through a web of red tape to uncover the monster's weakness and its mysterious ties to a foreign superpower. But time is not on their side - the greatest catastrophe to ever befall the world is about to evolve right before their very eyes.
