Well hey Sensei, you surprised me!  For the cover of volume 54, it's Rukia with the title of "Goodbye to Our Xcution." I thought we'd get Jackie for sure with that title--to make for a full set of the fullbringers. Now all I can think of is omg, a RUKIA POEM.

The cover is wonderful--the first shinigami to show in the arc in a crouching pose.  I guess Rukia's appearance in the manga really did spell the end for Ginjou and the fullbringer arc.  I'm so eager for the poem. Will it be an answer to Ichigo's that opened the arc? Will it cover the idea that while Rukia didn't defeat Riruka with the sword, hers was a victory of the heart over Riruka? Rukia's defining moment in the volume was her speech about Ichigo and how he changed everyone--will the poem echo that?

Also, Jump Bang aired with a drawing from Kubo--Rukia playing guitar as one of the girls from Scandal! Cuuuuute! Screencap by [livejournal.com profile] melodymix and pic of Vol 54 below cut. (eta: Other souce credits Annie and Nacchan @deathberry and broken_coda on twitter).

That thumb...

Hmm, it looks weird to me, I can't make my thumb form a straight line with my index finger with the nail facing forward like that. But then again, it took me like five minutes to notice Rukia was playing a guitar, I'm really bad at looking at art of any kind ;p

You can't hold it like that. When you are pressing the string with a thumb - your wrist is going backwards and your other fingers will obviously follow it. You can't press d with your middle finger and have you thumb on the same lvl.

It looks very unnatural.

PS: unless Rukia has Paganini long fingers.

Kubo draws everything long these days. Legs, arms, torsos, fingers...

You may already know this, but the official DVD cover art for the Jump Festa OVAs is Ichigo and Rukia in suits. They look damn fine, IMO.

ooh, yeah, I'd forgotten! They do look fine, I just wish Rukia was facing forward so I could get a full-body shot :p Thanks for reminding me.

OMG, RUKIA IS FINALLY ON THE COVER! I have been waiting for it so long. Sensei kept denying me Rukia on the cover for years and now when he finally puts her she looks so amazing. With her vc arm badge and her gloves. *fangirls*

In the anime, doesn't Ichigo have a guitar in his room?

The cover and Jump Bang picture of Rukia are both sooooo lovely. T___T Double Rukia. I'm super excited. I can't wait for the Rukia poem :D :D

Thanks to Annie, Melody, Nacchan, and others for bringing the caps and pictures XD

Yes, fingers and thumbs on frets look odd. Can we move on, please?

I'm willing to forgive Kubo if he doesn't know the correct finger placement for guitars. He's already an amateur fashion designer and a manga artist. That's enough for me.

OMG *faints* Rukia, Rukia, Rukia *__* .

Can't wait for the POEM and whoa that drawing of her playing the guitar, bringing back the melodies XD, is sooo sexy and her expression is pure cool badass <333

Thanks for sharing this T__T. After Rukia withdrawals in the manga, this makes me happy and so excited *noes*

Oh man, if this was actually a part of the volume art, it would make an interesting counter point to the "Days Without Melodies" chapter title.

I have to admit I like the cover and I really do like Rukia's new outfit a lot :)

She looks so cool in both pictures!
The cover: Thank goodness, she finally has another cover! About time too! I love how the last volume of the arc has her on it. And she looks completely badass. This makes up for Rukia's current absence in the manga (I just really miss her ok).

YESSSSSSS. Thank you, melodymix, Annie, Nacchan, and broken_coda so much for sharing!

Rukia cover, finally! She looks great in that pose and Kubo's really using her new hairstyle well with all the movement in it. And that guitar pic, cute. I seriously cannot wait for her poem, though.

I like that part of the interview melodymix translated. Indeed, Sode no Shirayuki is a reflection of Rukia. :D
