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!

Throw Back: That one time I competed in a pageant

Once upon a time, what seems like a long time ago I decided I wanted to be a beauty queen. It was definitely an experience I will never forget and I finally have the chance to tell you all about it!

I've always known that I wanted to help people in some way, and one day it dawned on me if I had a crown that would definitely give me a much louder voice to speak on issues I thought were important. So, I went searching for what I thought was the best pageant for me and I landed on Miss Nevada USA 2016. The only thing I knew about pageants at this point was from the Miss Congeniality movie and what I heard about from my cousin's social media pages. So from that, I thought it was going to be a breeze...PSYCH! It was probably the most grueling process of self-discovery I've ever put myself through.

My first step was figuring out how much all of this was going to cost. For me, it was a ridiculous amount that I just wasn't going to be able to make at my day job in time for th…

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 yo…

My Netflix Obsession: Raising Dion

My latest Netflix obsession lands right on Raising Dion. This Netflix Original is about a Widowed single mother, played by Alisha Wainwright (that I recognize from Shadow Hunters), who is doing her best to raise a son with superhuman abilities that seem to keep growing. While we are at NO shortage of superhero movies and shows right now, this one breaks the average mold by being the story of a child of color. Without giving you too many spoilers, this is why you should start binging right now.


First, second and third of all MICHAEL B. JORDAN. Thank you, and goodnight folks. That smile moves mountains and can get me to watch anything! BUT, I got caught up and sucked in before I even realized he was in this so it was a delightful bonus. Unfortunately, we learn early on in the movie that Michael's character, Mark, was killed in a storm saving someone giving us the hero factor right out of the gate. The characters of this show are SO easily loveable. Dion, played by Ja'Siah Young…

Let's Go Sailing: Cruising With a Toddler

Cruising with Carnival has become a yearly thing for my mom and I, and this year we extended the tradition a generation by bringing my 1-year-old with us. We went for a 4 day, Halloween cruise from Long Beach with 2 stops - Catalina Island and Ensenada, Baja California. Here's a rundown on going on a cruise with a toddler!

First off, we drove from Las Vegas all the way to the Long Beach Terminal so the first leg of our trip was a 4+ hour car ride. I made sure we were fully stocked for the ride over so we wouldn't have to make too many stops and make the ride any longer. Turns out we didn't need anything I packed for the ride because he slept for about 3 1/2 hours and was completely content with his tablet, a juice box, and some cheez-its when he woke up. 🤦🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️

We decided to check our bags instead of dragging them through the ship because we just knew we wanted to grab some food and explore before going back to the room. That means we had to have everything we cou…

My Disney+ Watchlist: November Launch

I love a good streaming service, and Disney has just taken 100% of my viewing time with the launch of its latest service, Disney+! They've got our all-time faves from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and more. I've signed up, and locked in my free trial and am about to grab the popcorn and snuggle up for the long haul! Here's what's first up in my Disney+ watch list.

My first ever Disney+ stream was an easy choice, The Nightmare Before Christmas! My tiny was Jack Skellington for Halloween, and it's the perfect movie for between the seasons. I'm sure we'll put this one back on a few times as it's an all-time favorite.

Next up, we went straight to The Goofy Movie! I have the fondest memories of this from being a kid! I'm pretty sure I had the tape 😂. My tiny was fully ready to jump up and try to do the Power Line/Goofy dance with me. And, he recognized Goofy from the shows he gets to watch now. Such a fun moment.

Then we tuned i…

Vegas Bound: January 2020 Guide

This list does not include everything that is happening here regularly like the Cirque du solei shows, the daily free shows, sights and things like that.

Mask Monday: Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask

It is that wonderful time again where my skin is acting all the way out of control. This time it could be my horrible quarantine diet, stress, hormones, my 2-year-old touching God knows what then rubbing my face...the list of possibilities is endless. To combat that I'm going in the Mix, Mask & Hydrate 6 piece kit from Peter Thomas Roth that we got at an incredible value price.


Today, I am tapping into the Cucumber Gel Mask. It is an Extreme Detoxifying Hydration mask that is instantly refreshing (I keep mine in the refrigerator), cooling, and a moisturizing calming gel that helps soothe dry irritated skin. I've used this mask before, and know that it works wonders on my sometimes overly sensitive skin combination skin. I feel like my skin issues are coming from clogged pores and stress, so the detoxifying bit will really help me get to the smooth skin I just know exists underneath all this drama.


So, to start off I like to use a gentle cleanser to get any makeup, dirt or…

Top 7 Mistakes Las Vegas Tourists Make

Las Vegas, where the world comes to play. The rich and famous blend into the background and everyone can become anyone they want. It's an exciting place, bound to give you some of the best memories of your life... but before you start planning your trip, check out this list of Top 7 Mistakes Las Vegas Tourists Make:


Micromanagement: 8am spa package, 10:30 brunch, 11:15-3pm walk the strip, 3pm-4pm get ready for dinner, 4pm-6pm gamble, 6pm-7:30 dinner and cocktails…..you get my drift. The absolute worst thing you can do for yourself and your vacation crew is micromanaging every minute and hour of the day. Vegas is the home of spontaneity. You are missing out on the best of the city if you’re planning like this. Plan the big stuff, your upscale dinner reservations, shows, and guest lists or bottles but let everything else come as it will…because it WILL come. All you are doing is stressing yourself out when it takes you 5 extra minutes to get your hair done, or your party wants to t…
