Tell Sensei How to Display 2011 IchiRuki Spread!  

Ha, the post about the Ichigo and Rukia spread drawn by Kubo for the 2011 comic calendar is still getting comments. It's fun to read all the spazzing. As for Sensei himself, he has gushed in twitter over the calender but boggles at its size (seriously, this thing is HUGE--it's twice the size of the 2009 calendar--it's FREAKING HUGE). Sensei said in two separate tweets that he had no idea how display it because there's a spread in it that has a "landscape orientation" (that would be the IchiRuki spread), and really, has anyone figured it out--to display that particular spread one would have to put this huge calendar sideways... and haha, Sensei wants to display the IchiRuki spread in his own place!

If anyone figures out how to display the honeymoon spread tell me--I don't want to hang the calendar myself to use (my husband will not let me get past October and the Matsumoto body parts manip--seriously, October is all Matsumoto's breasts and thighs--BUT then again, I'm loving the Visored manip). I'd love it if I could figure out a way to display the IchiRuki spread!

LOLOLOL everyone's apparently got a fave spread in this calendar. Pft, Max, I get your reasoning but hey, all art is still art. XD

To answer your question: Display it full-on and in everyone's faces. Kubo is obviously happy with it, so no other display will do it justice.

October gets Matsumoto sexiness? Yay! :D

According to yesasia, my calendar has just been shipped \o/! Lets hope the smart people here will solve this calendar displaying dilemma before it gets to me ♥

And awww, Kubo is worried he won't get to display his IchiRuki spread :3 I thought he only drew it because of pressure and moniez... Goodness, Kubo, where are your integrity! XD

HOLD ON
WAIT JUST ONE FUCKING MINUTE HERE

I WAS ASSURED THAT KUBO DIDN'T ACTUALLY WANT TO DRAW THAT BEACH SPREAD BUT HIS EDITORS MADE HIM DO IT, FOR FANSERVICE

ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME THAT WAS A LIE? ARE YOU ACCUSING KUBO OF LYING?!

MME. DEBBIE, PROCURE FOR THYSELF A BRACE OF PISTOLS AND MEET ME ON THE EAST GARDEN LAWN ERE DAWN BREAKS. WE WILL SETTLE THIS MATTER OF KUBO'S HONOR LIKE GENTLEMEN--WITH GUNS.

Re: HOLD ON

"Kubo Karma" is uncanny is it not, Guildenstern? Fandom accues him of fanservicing, says he's drawn spreads reluctantly before and fails to take into consideration that while spreads are fantastical and thematic, they usually tell VERY MUCH about how the author perceives his characters--say Gin holding a fox mask, something that never happened in canon but is supposed to cue an audience about his nature. Likewise with other atmospheric spreads such as the rescuers wading in dark waters during the HM arc.

Flirty tender looks exchanged between Ichigo and Rukia in a bona fide couples spread? Fanservice maybe but no one put a gun to Kubo's head and made him do it.

I would never accuse Sensei of lying but I'll go play guns wicha anytime. <3

I'm currently thinking of pasting it on my ceiling :D (judging from its humongous size!) That way, I can stare at IchiRuki spread before I sleep/when I wake up/while I relax.

Or maybe, if I really get desperate, I'd paste it just beside my bed, along the length (even though it's rather risky since I move around a lot at night).

balsa wood.

tis the answer to everything.

make a picture frame to size with a box cutter and some glue, stabbity a hole in the top so it can be hung, and voila!

You have to have two frames, one for the calendar to rest inside, and the other a smidgin smaller to hold calendar in place, but it wouldn't take a expert to build something attractive and practical in 10 minutes.

Hmm this might work for me. Although I'm dangerous with a box cutter, lol. I'll mention to Sensei too. <3

Kubo is so cute! ^___^

We love it too, Sensei! <333

As for displaying, the only thing I can think off without ruining the calendar, is to put it on a desk or a flat-surface and let it lean on the wall.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 11th, 2010 02:46 pm (UTC)

I was thinking of propping it up underneath with some books because it's really too weildy to lean properly against a wall without sliding down but I may just go with the handmade balsa wood frame option.

My suggestion: Buy one of those poster frames and put it in there, then hang the whole poster frame on the wall.

How about those hooks that come with the sticker-like backing?

I don't know how thick the calendar is, but I was thinking of pasting those hooks on the wall and then placing the calendar on them.

Although, considering that those hooks would require me to place them in a straight line - and, I fail at straight lines even with the help of a level - it may just be easier to build a shelf...

Go with "build a shelf", the spread certainly deserves it anyway.

I just ordered mine a couple of days ago. I wish I had money for an all glass table, where you can put it underneath it and look at it through http://www.governmentauctions.org/uploaded_images/displaytable-739802.jpg (maybe something stylish for Kubo sensei to put that calendar and other things he would like to display, something that'll match his already kick ass glass table he bought a while back, with the inscriptions XD ), like a display table of sorts http://www.siouxsyn.com/display%20table%202.jpg
There is also shallow boxes to display objects that are more 3D like this one http://www.digitalfm.com/gameusedbats/pics/items/1_Cof_Table.jpg . There might something like that on your neighborhood "hobby" store or a Michael's, etc...
I hope those ideas work at all. They are certainly not the cheapest :P .
_debbiechan_: Ishida and Miriam_debbiechan_ on November 11th, 2010 04:24 pm (UTC)

MUST. BUILD. TABLE. Haha, seriously, this could be used to display so many things around here. And it would keep my pheleon plushies safe from the cats (they're currently in a metal and glass cabinet with other memorabilia but that's so full)
nehalenianehalenia on November 11th, 2010 05:34 pm (UTC)
Hmm, how about a picture rail or a narrow shelf? It wouldn't even have to be the full length of the open calendar, just enough to support it. Those narrow display shelves were popular last time I looked. I'll bet you can order one cheap from IKEA.

Poster frames might work, if there are any that are at least 46 inches wide (or tall) >_>; It is almost 4 feet wide. T________T
chalitychality on November 11th, 2010 07:52 pm (UTC)
Would some kind of easel work? I have yet to receive my calendar, so I haven't gotten a first-hand look at the dimensions, but I think I'm going to try displaying it on some kind of stand in a corner of my living room. My apartment has a strict "no-nails in the wall" policy, so I'm hoping this works.

If I ask nicely, will someone here buy me the calendar?
