What a thing to wake up to. IchiRuki romansu and the destiny theme steamrolling over Aizen’s poor little ambitions in bondage somewhere…. Ah, Sensei, you’re such a romantic—just like Rukia told Ichigo at the end of the last musical, lol.

Todah rabah Annie, Nacchan, Mel and deathberry HERE

When the two that share destiny part and reunite, beyond the frame of time the ceased clock will awake and start to tick once again

Kubo sensei’s poem with IchiRuki spread from anniversary chapter (ch.460) from SOUL RESURRECTION Vol 6

If you follow the link to deathberry, you'll see a lot of IchiRuki squeeing of course because the forum is IchiRuki. Here's one comment from Nacchan's tumblr I found amusing and fangirly but also giving you some factual stuffs:

I love how Kubo-sensei provided the English version of the poem this time so there’s no need for unnecessary translation wank, I had enough of that seriously

So happy that IchiRuki got another canon poem AGAIN, I even already lost count how many poems they have right now

  • The “Black Sun - White Moon” poem
  • The “Sand and Rotator” Poem
  • The “One Boy, One Shinigami the story of destiny begins” poem
  • The “Things that take you high is not only wings” poem
  • Ichigo’s vol 19 poem — “That’s right nothing else can change my world”
  • Ichigo’s vol 49 poem — “Can I keep up with the speed of the world without you”
  • ….. okay I lost count, we just had too many (._____.  )


eta: the HQ scan, thank you to Ku. OMG, it's so lovely.

HQ in all its glory )
eta2--from Annie, another poem that illuminates a spread. OMG, this one is beautiful too. I'm dying over here:

Fullbringer shoe spread: "Are we standing in the same place? Are you going to betray me? Step towards the truth in shoes / washed by tears."

I... I... am shivering with anticipation.  This comes to you from deathberry, but it looks like Resurrected Souls 6 will reveal a new wakame sculpture by Byakuya of none other than Kurosaki Ichigo wielding Zangetsu:

Not omakes but five pages of infos and quotables from Sensei. Thank you to Zangetsu01 at BA here:

No translations yet but so far Estella May has noted in the thread:

So it's saying that the Substitute/Soul Society arcs were the volume on Rukia, the Arrancar arc = the volume on Orihime, and the Lost Agent arc = the volume on Chad?

Does this mean we'll get an upcoming "volume" on Ishida?


My response was: OMGOSH, SARAH DON'T EXCITE ME WITH SUCH NOTIONS.

ah interesting info, but in any event, you'll note that all these characters were featured somewhat in these "volumes" but not really singled out for character development. Rukia's character development wasn't really fulfilled until the Arrancar arc and her battle with the 9th... Orihime's seems in progress and so does Chad's. I've been waiting for Ishida to find out what he's fighting for ever since his grandpa told him he'd find that out PRE-SS but....

we all know Sensei takes his sweet time.

I SEE UNOHANAAAAAAAA. Rose and Kira do look alike. They will make a funny team.

ETA: Estella May's translations: http://bleachasylum.com/threads/19747-Gotei-13-Omakes-for-the-3-week-break?p=2907502&viewfull=1#post2907502

I think I just wet myself over Unohana revelations. I mean, Sensei's teased before but... omg she unbraids her HAIR.

Interesting how the summaries of the Orihime volume and the Chad volume don't even mention those characters--
I call revisionist BS.

Next arc will be Isshin volume. Because everyone on 2ch is guessing an Ishida volume

THANK YOU ESTELLA MAAAAAAY.

Riruka for the Year of the Dragon

She looks great. I would've preferred Uryuu or Ryuuken or even Tatsuki who have dragons in their names but eh, I like Riruka a lot too.

Awww, I'm so touched. I find my stuff translated here and there (often without permission :/) but I was really thrilled to have my story "Ichigo's Funeral" translated into Chinese and posted at baidu recently.  Thanks Estella May for finding the link:

http://tieba.baidu.com/p/1262600351

The story (you can find parts 1 & 2 HERE in English) has always been my most popular story in fandom--funny, I thought it was so morbid when I wrote it. It's an ensemble piece with lots of humor, probably a little timely for the manga right now since it involves Ichigo destroying his human body to go live in S.S. The subject of Ichigo's future has everyone upside down and sideways with debate at the moment--I wrote the story years ago, believing that shinigami-hood was the inevitable natural course for the boy.

I really want to know what the comments in Chinese say so any help from people who know the language would be nice. :)

I'm posting this because I know there's at least one Bleach fanwork out there waiting to be posted, but also to make a recommendation. If, like many of us here, you enjoy Chad, Ishida, and Orihime as a threesome, or even if you just like the characters, do something nice for yourself and go read [livejournal.com profile] imlikat's lovely fic Hold Me Down at her journal. She has it rated as NC-17 and while it is indeed wonderfully steamy, I'd probably give it an R rating myself, if only to encourage those of you who shy away from really graphic smexing. While, as noted, there's a lot of heat in this story, it really revolves around the characters and Imli does a fantastic job of portraying each of them. If you've ever scratched your head at this threesome and wondered how they could have gotten together, go read this story and wonder no more. The characterizations are spot on, and Ishida as the POV character is a special delight. Go READ!

Let the rest of the posting begin!

Howdy, is everyone recovered from the holidays yet? I'm still digesting all the goodwill and hoping fandom doesn't blow all its gaskets before the next chapter is out. WSJ breaks are usually a little rough on Bleach fans, lol.

* First, congra to [livejournal.com profile] peca_06 for getting her IchiRuki fanart featured on this site: http://www.bouguereau.net/bouguereaus-famous-first-kiss-gets-an-anime-makeover/  I love Bouguereau and Peggy-sensei and I squeed myself silly when I saw the angel IchiRuki art.

* As some of you have noted in my comments, I've moved [livejournal.com profile] bleachness to Dreamwidth. I'll be making some changes in the upcoming weeks so stay posted for announcements. (This Live Journal account is a lifetime permanent one so [livejournal.com profile] bleachness will never leave here and all future posts on Dreamwidth will be cross-posted to appear here. You'll get instructions on how to join DW's [livejournal.com profile] bleachness later).

* My sister moved my personal website (which includes a few stuffs other than Bleach stuffs) to Wordpress. Expect some changes there too. I have lots of housecleaning to do. The new site is http://debbiechan.com/

* THE ICHI-ISHI FANWORKS CONTEST HERE IS STILL ONGOING. This part involves fic based on the previous contest's art entries. The deadline for submitting is Jan 31, 2011. More details HERE.

And a MERRY YEAR OF THE DRAGON TO ALL.

Hello everyone! ^o^

Well, as the title says I've recently received my very own VISA card for the first time in my life and I would really like to make use of it for buying various Bleach merchandise! Until I become completely poor and get my VISA card cancelled by my bank and banned from opening any other cards...ever again...

Unfortunately, until now I have only been able to follow Bleach and its world online. The reason being is because very VERY few people in my country know what manga and anime are, and there is absolutely no place in the country to buy any of these things. And so, since I never had any kind of payment card before and no steady income, I couldn't buy anything online either. T.T

BUT, things have changed now and it's time to support Kubo by returning the love and buying things legaly so that Bleach gets the support that it deserves!

So, I have a few questions for those of you who buy stuff online:

Could you please recommend some websites that sell anime and manga and cute Japanese stuff and what not? It is not of course only limited to Bleach, I mean stuff from the anime and manga world in general. And also, if you have any tips for a first time buyer and VISA card user I would really appreciate it. As a first purchase, I will of course buy something small like a keychain just to get the hang of things and see how this whole online shopping thing works, since I haven't bought anything online before. In the future (when I get the hang of it a little bit), my goal is to buy the Bleach volumes because I really want them!

Just FYI in case it is important, my VISA card is one where I cannot get into debt, because I can only spend the amount that I actually pay into the card's account. Also, I am European. :o)

Thank you so much for all the help in advance! I am sorry if this perhaps does not belong in this community, but I felt that people here would know their Bleach stuff and be able to help me out?

Thank you so much once again, I really look forward to reading people's comments! :o)

I’m here, I’m here…Am I still in time for the contest? I hope so XD I actually wrote another story before this one but I didn’t like it. Too difficult to write it down in english without making a mess, so today I write a new one inspired by a another fanart, one of my favourite to be honest, I’m sure you’ll understand which is it after reading the fic. I hope you like it even if I’m sure there must be a lot of english mistake..please be kind with that, I tried my best using easy sentences XD

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!!!!! Enjoy the last day of the year and let the next be even better!

Title: Bad taste, Good friend
Fandom: Bleach
Paring: IchIshi (more or less XD)
Word: 1717
Spoiler: volume 48
Disclaimer: Ichigo, Ishida and all Bleach character belongs to Tite Kubo-sensei

The majority of the Fullbringer Arc happened in 2011. At a little over a year long, such a short arc is unprecedented by Kubo standards yet people still complained that it dragged. It's winding up now, and I hear complaints about how unsatisfying it was.

Well, it was an unpopular arc to be sure--if WSJ reader polls and forum posts in both the East and West are anything to go by.

I'm in a distinct minority of being one of those who thoroughly enjoyed the arc--I believe Kubo-sensei's story-telling skills improved, but he wasn't telling the story people wanted him to tell and he was neglecting the characters people wanted to see. Fans never took to the Fullbringers, and even though Sensei's pacing and clues and story-elements were all carefully placed as far as I can tell (on three re-readings), the strengths of the arc could never overcome its weaknesses: in a chapter like "Spotlight Brocken" where Kubo makes doorknobs and phases of the moon and shadows of figures in alleyways allude to passages of time and a creepy distortion of perspective that occurs during the brocken spectre, the elaborate poetry got befuddled with the dissonance readers felt when Ichigo's character suddenly distrusted his longtime mentor Urahara and his own dad--when that was exactly the point of the chapter. Some people were frustrated with an Ichigo this dumb.

As were others with the nakama showing hints of their powers or character development only to be nerfed later in the arc.

Characterization--Kubo's famous strength--was clearly in evidence in the lyrical parables of the Fullbringer backstories--each of which, even Ginriko's, could have stood alone as a short story. But not many fans seemed to care that much. There were huge pay-offs in the arc for Ichigo's character eventually, and Kubo had picked up a stitch here and there from months past (Rukia's voice from the shinigami badge) and from many years past (Ishida's noticing something off with the shinigami badge just after the SS arc) but he had strewn too many other clues and dropped too many other stitches in the meantime.

warning: lots of images (not neatly organized bc I value my time) under cut

I'm putting together a big ass retrospective post re Bleach manga 2011 while the husband is off work, entertaining the kids and I have some (relatively) uninterrupted comp time ("MOM! Where did I put...?" "Debbie, have you seen my....?") but before I post that, here are some late birthday/Hanukah prezzies to me I wanted to share with you. I got some cute stuffs.

From Eny! She commissioned a chibi Ishida art for me from Alexaclyne: http://alexaclyne.deviantart.com/art/Commission-2-kala-k-271660936

Pheleon always sends cool lagniappe. She included two adorable keychains of Rukia's "suitors" Ichigo and Renji to go along with the newhair!vice-captain!Rukia plushie I showed you earlier:

the suitors )
Her commissions are currently closed but will open up in a few months. Her Etsy shop is here (don't know what's left!) : http://www.etsy.com/shop/pheleon

MY SON ASHER is a budding artist and made me a Deviko out of pipecleaners for one night of Hanukah! <3

DEVIKO IS BADASS )

[livejournal.com profile] mezzo_marinaio always sends the coolest stuff all the way from Italy. She's been known to test baked goods to see how long it takes for them to spoil before reaching Louisiana in a parcel. Max was maybe a little disappointed we didn't get delicious Sicilian treats this Hanukah (lol, we're eating enough donuts as it is!!!) but I was thrilled to get the most unique IshiHime present EVER!

WEE! )

[livejournal.com profile] asmaria sent me a lovely holiday card with my favorite Bleach character drawn on it. <3

who could it be, lol )

I got volumes of Resurrected Souls but have yet to put the 2010 WSJ spine pic posters up in the hallway. That's it--no more Bleach posters or else my house becomes a Bleach museum! Right now pictures of family still outnumber fanarts of Ishida and Bleach posters!

So, what did  Bleach goodies did you get this holiday season?
[identity profile] kohi-no-tora.livejournal.com
Just wishing everyone a Happy Holiday and very Bleach New Year.

(Yes, it might be early from some, but I'm several time zones ahead of... most of the rest of the comm).
[identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/_debbiechan_/
Infos from Jump Festa are out. There's an ongoing thread at deathberry brought to you by the usual wonderful people who provide the Bleach fandom with such goodies--Annie, Nacchan et al. See the many pix, hear tales of Ono Daisuke looking hot in SUSPENDERS, the fans saying Sensei has put on the pounds again, see a pic of the The Getsuga Tenshou Burger and much more.

Merry Holidays All. I've been getting some precious gifts and I hope to put up pictures later.
