Watch Next: BLEACH Live Action on Netflix

BLEACH - Live Action Movie


Let's talk Netflix! I spend so much time streaming my favorite shows and movies it is absolutely crazy. I'm sure if Netflix and Hulu and Amazon Prime (yes I have all of them) decided to tell me how many hours a month I spend using their streaming services it would be embarrassing. So, I totally know what's poppin on the streaming services and am more than happy to help you find your next entertainment title! Today, I'm telling you enough to get you excited but not spoil BLEACH!

Bleach was originally a manga (I never read it) then it became a TV series aka an Anime. I am a HUGE fan of the series and have watched the whole thing like 3 times on crunchy roll (Yes, I have that too). If you decide you like the movie, I 100% recommend you watch the series. Let me reel in my fangirl and tell you the basics:

The main character, Ichigo is just a regular-degular 15 year old (Who looks NOTHING like a 15-year-old in the movie nor the anime) who can see ghosts. He meets Rukia who is like an Evil Spirit (aka Hollow) Slayer who then trains Ichigo to be a Hollow slayer as well (They are actually called Soul Reapers)...and it comes with serious consequences.

Without spoiling the actual story of the movie that's all I want to tell you about the plot. What I will tell you is there is drama, there are laughs, there are "Oh Shit" moments and the special effects had me SHOOK! As a fan of the anime, I was AMAZED to see the hollows come to life and other special effects moments that I don't want to spoil. I watched it with my mom who is NOT an anime fan and has no patience for subtitles, but it kept her seated and entertained through till the end! I even caught her getting emotional over it, so you know she was locked in subtitles and all.

As a movie fan, and a fan of the anime I say WATCH IT, watch it now, and watch it often. It's got all the stuff you need for a great action movie and then some. You do have to read subtitles but for me, that's no big deal at all. The music is epic, the visuals are stunning. This is one to add to your list for sure. Honestly, after the Death Note fiasco, I was super scared to see what was going to happen and I am so very pleased with the outcome and now fully trust Netflix again with my anime entertainment.

Fangirl Discussion Time

If you haven't seen the show or the movie, I suggest you don't read this part because I'm going to talk about the differences and it could ruin some parts for you. And no matter how much it might seem like I'm complaining, I swear I'm not! I love the movie and I love the anime. I just have got to talk about these changes.

First of all, they didn't give me enough Chad! I understand that they only had a short period of time to make such an epic story make sense so a lot had to be turned down and cut out but it makes me sad that I didn't get to see Chad be Chad in the movie. He got like 2 scenes to be cool...and it just wasn't enough for me.

My second sad face came when I realized there was no Kon. This little guy is fully my favorite, and his presence was most definitely missed in this movie. I'm praying for sequels, but I feel like they completely missed the opportunity to introduce him now that Rukia is back in the Soul Society and Ichigo just leaves his body wherever the heck. I'm still holding out for him though. The creativity behind the live action could still find a way to make it work in the future. Fingers crossed!

I loved the cast. I thought each role was cast great, written great and their performance was amazing. Orihime was not "damsel in distress" enough for me though. She was totally sweet and innocent and "oh don't mind me getting knocked onto the ground and hit by cars" in the show and just a cute school girl with a crush in the movie. Another thing though that was weird to me about the cast was all the guy characters were super close to the characters in the show, like hair and outfits but NONE of the girls were obviously their characters visually. Ichigo had his orange hair, Chad had his hair in his face, Byakuya had his hair decorations, even Renji had dramatic red hair but NONE of the girl's hair was true to character...not even his sisters. What's that about?

I was just GUSHING over that last fight sequence. How freaking dope was the Grand Fisher!? I LOVED seeing Renji release his Zanpacto!!! Seeing Byakuya as the badass he is was everythinggggg...but the way that ended just messed me up. Like at this point why would he chase Rukia into the Soul Society? I wouldn't be thinking she's in trouble, she didn't leave under arrest, Hat and Clogs didn't come save him and explain the situation. She left with her powers returned...so why would they execute her still?  My mom was under the impression they were in love and obviously, he's going to go after her because he loves her...sooo are they going to make it a love thing? Because when I was watching the show I definitely didn't get love vibes when he went after her, it felt like it was a sense of duty. Like he owed her, like it was just the right thing to do.

Whatever ends up happening with Bleach, I'm here for it. I absolutely love watching my favorite animes become live action. As much crap as I talk about Death Note, it was wild and exciting to see it in live action and with characters that actually felt relatable to me. I am STILL waiting for an official Sailor Moon live action. I don't care what we have to do, who we have to pay or how many times I have to tweet lol I need that to be a reality! Attack on Titan still scares me as a live action, I can barely tolerate the anime...and another one I am dying to see made into live action is Sword Art Online! How dope would that be!? Like Ready Player One realness. 

What did you think of the Bleach Live Action? What anime do you want to see made live action next? Let me know down in the comments, or join the conversation with me on twitter and tag me @NikkiOnVegas in your next tweet!

My Netflix Obsession: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

I am loving that Netflix has original movies and series! Right now I am all caught up in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and am very impatiently waiting for the release info on seasons 3 and 4! Let's talk all about why this is SUCH a binge-able flick and YOU should be just as excited to catch up! So, I went into CAOS without even knowing what I was getting myself into. I thought it was a Sabrina the Teenage witch via Melissa Joan Heart spin off/reboot/remake situation...I had NO idea Archie Comics had an entire dark world that spawned my childhood fave...because I would have been obsessed YEARS ago. They took something that was sweet, innocent and wholesome, added the actual devil and a dash of sexy and I've been horrified through every episode! The series keeps all our Sabrina favorites, Sabrina herself, Harvey, Hilda and Zelda, and my always favorite Salem but with a twist and gives us some new favorites in the Weird Sisters, Ambrose Spellman and Nicholas Scratch.

My Netflix Obsession: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3!

I feel like I've been waiting for this to drop FOREVER!!! I've been battling a touch of insomnia so I was MORE than pleased to tune in to Part 3 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the moment it dropped on January 24th and here's why YOU should be just as obsessed. I'll keep the spoilers to a minimum, but DEFINITELY finish Part 2 before you go on. Netflix Ladies and Gents, the wait is finally over (kind of) as we get to settle in for a binge-a-thon with our new favorite witch, Sabrina Spellman. Here's the preview: So, we know we left off Part 2 of CAOS with Nabrina (Nick Scratch and Sabrina, End Game) in a tough situation to get out of! Nick did the most honorable thing and used his OWN BODY as a prison for Sabrina's not so loving father, Satan. They then sent the body prison that is Nick to Hell with its new ruler Lilith. Part 2 was such a whirlwind, and they started Part 3 NO DIFFERENTLY! We pick right up into Sabrina and her closest friend

Now Streaming: 'Legacies' on Netflix Seasons 1 and 2

I love a good supernatural drama series. I was all in on the 'Vampire Diaries' for a while, and when the 'Originals' came in with what felt like a more "grown-up" storyline from the beginning, I was instantly HOOKED! It had everything I needed in a supernatural drama, but when that ended I was left in a show hole. How do you even follow up on that epic storyline, but thank the bright minds at CW they made it happen with 'Legacies'. With 'Legacies', we are tuning in to the life of Hope Mikaelson after the loss of her parents at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted ran by Alaric Saltzman who is firmly seated in our hearts from 'Vampire Diaries'. Alaric is the headmaster of the Salvatore School and is looking after his twin daughters who are the last living members of the Gemini Coven. This is exactly the drama series I needed to check into during this quarantine. The Salvatore School is home to the witch, werewolf and vampire

Mom Life in Quarantine: Toddler Craft Time - Hidden Messages Water Coloring

Social Distancing and Quarantine with my wonderful 2-year-old has been an experience so far! I am a stay at home mom, so having him home with me every day is nothing new, but what IS new is how quickly he's growing, learning and developing new skills. Almost faster than I can keep up. What entertained him all day pre quarantine now won't hold his attention for more than 10 minutes. So I've got to get more creative in the ways that I keep HIM creative. Here's where we are today: Hidden messages to be revealed while water coloring! So, to start we had to work with what we had: The back of his coloring pages he'd already scribbled to his enjoyment White Crayon Cups/bowls Water Food Coloring/watercolors A paintbrush  Fresh paper is hard to come by in our household, so we are making it work with some recycled paper. I took the white crayon and wrote his name, drew some shapes I know he would recognize, the uppercase and lowercase letters I want to focus o

Sphynx: For The Girl On The Go

This year's Travel Goods Association 's Travel Goods Show '19 has introduced me to so many of my current favorite products! Today, we are talking about the Sphynx razor that you can use for hair removal ANYWHERE! Living in the desert makes shorts, sundresses, tank tops, surprise photo shoots and pool days a part of everyday life. Unfortunately, running around chasing a 1-year-old and taking care of everyone's vacations makes hair removal one of the last things on my to-do list! Lucky for me, I received a goodie bag from the Travel Goods Association at this year's Travel Goods Show that gave me my latest secret weapon! The Sphynx Portable Razor ! I keep this beauty in my bag at all times and it has already saved me from having to miss out on a pool day and the embarrassment of missing a spot trying to rush when wearing one of my favorite dresses. Here's how it works. This little beauty here has everything you need for a shave - a small squirt bottle

This is going to be a weekly series I run where I will feature local people, businesses and services that are amazing, aiding our community and I think we should all know more about.

Once a month, she gifts to anyone available a free phone in guided meditation and energetic share where everyone can call in and have a moment to unwind, relax and tune in to a higher fr

Safety 101: 5 Tips for Solo Travel to Las Vegas

Getting your whole crew together to come party with you in Vegas can be a challenge! Everyone has a reason to miss out on this trip, whether it's budget, timing, childcare, etc. Sometimes, you have to just catch a flight and take a vacation by yourself! This can be the best time you've ever had, but you have more safety concerns when you're solo than when you're with a crew. Here are some safety tips to keep in mind on your next solo outing in Las Vegas. Stay In Public Areas Las Vegas is among the most popular tourist destinations in America. We do everything we can to make sure your stay is safe, and you feel secure. You can't get into the hotel elevators at most resorts unless you have a room key, Las Vegas Blvd (the Strip) and the Fremont Street Experience are lined with on-duty police officers, and each hotel has their own trained security staff ready to aid any situation (even labor!). Some of our best venues are off the strip. For this, I recommend taking
