Set photos aren’t typically flattering. They don’t show the slick, polished image that a trailer does, and instead, give a behind-the-scenes peek. Keep that in mind when looking at the first set photos for the live-action Bleach film.

The shoot was near Sagami-Ono Station in Kanagawa Prefecture, and the images were recently uploaded on 2ch, Japan’s largest bulletin board. They show actor Sota Fukushi in costume, dressed as the protagonist Ichigo Kurosaki with rather normal-looking hair. Bleach creator Tite Kubo wrote that he was worried about the character’s hair, but it looks like the movie isn’t going with full-on orange.
