From deathberry of course, your source for the latest and most accurate Bleachy stuffs lately.

From [livejournal.com profile] pikeish here:

Cute tweet from Kudo Masashi (animation director of now deceased Bleach anime) on what he thinks when drawing Rukia.

A fan has tweeted him about what his opinion on Orihime's chest is and he replied with "Big", then another fan tweeted him asking what he thought on Rukia's? This was his answer:

Quote

小さい。というか全体的に小ささを意識して描く感じですかねぇ。一護との対比でとか。スケート回では二人の「手」の大きさの差の表現に腐心しました。


Small. I think it is more like I consider her body's general petiteness when drawing her. Like, in contrast to Ichigo. In the skating episode (342), I've struggled with the representation of the difference in the size of their hands.

Fans always did compare Rukia's height with Ichigo's, like how before the time-skip, it was exactly a foot difference. It's cute how Kudo's mind also went into comparing her height in contrast to Ichigo, and even for that detail with the size of their hands in the Date episode.


Also Kudo-san did give a brief response about Riruka's breasts.

Earlier in the week, Kubo-sensei himself had tweeted something funny in response to a fan questioning if Rukia was a boy. Here is the tweet translated by nacchan here:

Fan : Rukia is a girl isn't she?
Kubo : You need to ask? / What are you trying to confirm?


The tweet was a while ago but I'm still laughing--probably because I've heard so many Ruka=Hanatarou, Rukia=androgynous, Rukia=man comments in fandom lately. Usually Sensei takes the high road and doesn't address the crap he gets on a daily basis but I'm amused he chose to answer this dumbass tweet.

Thank you Estella May for image.

Riruka for the Year of the Dragon
looky )
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.

warning: shipping


The new CD cover for the ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D song for the anime ED that had IchiRuki fans heats a-thumping amuses me. It's a predictably IchiRuki cover alright buuuuut ... well, look:

what's Orihime doing thar? )

The ED was the talk of the fandom--shippy stuffs in Bleach usually are. ( #4 most discussed vid in film/animation Japan and other YouTube stats)

I do wonder if Hime's presence there isn't a deliberate ship tease. No doubt some parts of fandom may read that Ichigo may be looking at Rukia but his heart and the song belong to Orihime XD while the majority will read the cover to read like the famous 4chan post:

Friendzoned )

Meanwhile, Valentine's Day is coming up--think that Sensei will give it a nod? Last year we got that pretty spread of the boys and their chocolates. The year before last we got Rukia's dewy-eyed "beauty of the heart" color page. The official release date for the next chapter in Japan is Feb 14 and so far there's no announcement of a Bleach color page, only that a new manga will have the lead color page, but I'm so hoping for a glimpse of Orihime hard at work making chocolates for the customers in her shoppe! Or do you think we'll get a Riruka love page? XD

Finally, a couple days ago Sensei retweeted a very cute tweet in which a sixth grader (in an earlier post I'd mistakenly identified her as six yrs old) made put in a question to an advice columnist about how to confess. There was a long answer in whichshe was told that she should know what love is before she confesses. Her love was compared to the feeling she has toward favorite foods or the feeling of sunshine.

Anyway, I do think it's interesting that Sensei seems to be considering the nature of love lately. XD As a perennial shipper, it gives me hope for squee material. I found it interesting that Ichigo seemed to realize that he wasn't "in love" with his Shinigami badge, merely "fond" of it--while Riruka, given her girly penchant for LOOOOVING things (and wanting to be "crushed to death," lol, by them) made them into minatures. Surely Ichigo feels more seriously about his Shinigami identity than Riruka feels about his "hotness!" Maybe this is a commentary on how girls can discount and trivialize something as serious as love. If so... *looks at dolly collection and goes ouch* Maybe there's more to Riruka. After all there's more to me than my dolly collection! *glances at Ishida-lookalike hubby* XD

ETA: Shippiness continues. <3 More about the CD from the IR FC at BA. Translation by [livejournal.com profile] melodymix  from infos on the site:

ROOKiEZ is PUNK'Dの新曲は、初のラブソング。ただ一人の女性を守るために、もがき叫ぶ男の心境をストレートに表 現した感動の一曲に仕上がっている。 ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D's new song is their first love song ever. The song has been completed into a very emotional piece about a man who is struggling and screaming his emotions out in a very straightforward manner, in order to protect one woman.
