1) New glorious compilation post by Spiderkiss in deathberry, this time of Kubo's official Bleach art: http://deathberry.com/index.php?topic=82.msg1509#msg1509   (her previous compilation post of Kubo's rare illustrations continues to be updated here: http://deathberry.com/index.php?topic=80.msg1491#msg1491)

2) Good article by Deb Aoki: http://manga.about.com/od/bookreviews/a/Mangastream-Vs-Shonen-Jump-Alpha.htm
I'll take issue w/what she says about "leaked scans" being the source of early scanlations. Some issues of Shonen Jump are legally sold in certain areas in Japan before the "official" release date on Monday and these are purchased and given to scanlators. The illegal activity is the giving of the magazines to scanlators for illegal use, not the purchase of the magazines before the official release date. In the US and elsewhere, magazines are often sold before the official release date-- it you're a home subscriber, you're aware of this because you get your magazine before it hits the newstands.

I subscribe to VIZ ALPHA and have been a longtime supporter of VIZ despite my unhappiness with many aspects of their censorship and catering to a kiddie audience. More of my comments in the BA thread here.

3) Something pretty and fun. Our dear dear [livejournal.com profile] pikeish drew an IchiRuki IshiHime drawing for
Ishikawa Tomomi, the Bleach animator who is no longer going to be drawing for Bleach because she's gone on to bigger projects. Not only did Tomomi-san put Pike-chan's drawing in a frame on her desk, she also drew a pic back, one of Rukia (Pike's favorite character) waving goodbye. *cue tears* Here it is--so lovely!

I wish VIZ would have done Jump Alpha in print. Two issues of the magazine in 1 month with up to date chapters. I would have paid for that but as it is SJA looks to me in is beta stage and until it runs smoothly I will stick to buying selected Bleach VOL and penciling in the Honorifics myself.

Wow, that's so many level so of awesome. Although now I'm craving to see that Ichiruki IshiHime pic Pikeish did for Tomomi san :_). It has to be beyond beautiful.

That's amazing... Pikeish is lucky receiving a drawing from such a great Bleach artist! I've seen many of Pikeish's works, s/he's really talented as well and should work for Bleach anime too! ^^ hehehe

It's too bad that Tomomi-san is leaving Bleach... I'm gonna miss her artwork in the anime and merchandise. Is there a specific reason that she's leaving? T_T Unless she's trying to expand her horizons or continue education, etc... Well, I wish her the best whatever the reason!

Do you have any idea where I can reach Tomomi-san's blog or website? It would be lovely to keep up with her future updates, even if they're in Japanese. :) I'd appreciate your help!

Great discussion going on around here. If there's one thing SJA does/did right it's to incite lots and lots of debate/discussion/etc. around things we need to talk about, haha. And oh my, how lucky for [livejournal.com profile] pikeish! And what an honor for a drawing on Ishikawa-san's desk @_@
