For those of you who can't take a joke  

Apparently it's getting around that Kubo has responded to Orihime haters by saying he's going to draw her more the more hate tweets he gets.

Well, he did say that, but context is king. Do you really believe Sensei is that spiteful? Some people have taken his tweet as a sign (I'm not kidding) that if people criticize Orihime then Kubo will make IchiOri, RenRuki, and IshiNemu canon (wtf). Anyway, for those who were curious, Kubo did respond with his usual sense of humor about Orihime to one reader (who didn't hate on her overtly--but yes, from what I've seen at least one spammer has been consistently sending Kubo Orihime hate spam) and when readers said that they were going to bombard him with hate tweets about their own favorite characters so that he will draw these OTHER characters more, Kubo went along with the joke.

Geez fandom, get a grip.

あれ?まだ気付いてねえの?俺ひねくれてるから、こういうリプあると織姫の出番増えるんだぜー(笑)。 RT @iririitai: @tite_kubo 井上のお笑いアピールしすぎ。つーか最近井上しゃしゃりすぎ

Iririitai: “Inoue’s comical attitude is so appealing. That said, recently Inoue does butt in a little too much, eh…”
Kubo: “Ah? You still haven’t noticed? Since I’m feeling uncooperative, if there are such replies I will increase Orihime’s appearances!” (laugh)

大丈夫だよ(笑)。うちの読者はみんな賢いから。 RT @soutendo: @tite_kubo せんせー!そんな事聞いたら、大好きなキャラをわざと詰る人続出かもしれませんよΣ(・Д・;)私は好きすぎて無理ですが!!

Soutendo: “Sensei! After saying such things, you’ll have a flood of people who will rebuke their own favourite characters purposefully! Though it would be impossible for me, I love them too much…!”
Kubo: “It’s alright. (laugh) My readers are all wise.”

ザエルアポロはもう出ねーぞ。 RT @hebiten: @tite_kubo ザエルアポロまじしゃしゃりすぎ!(*´ω`*)ワクワク

Hebiten: “Szayel Apollo really does butt in a little too much!” (thrilled)
Kubo: “Szayel Apollo won’t appear anymore.”

おいおい!大好きなの知ってんだぜ!! RT @ayanatsubaki: おっ、織姫なんか大嫌いなんだからねっ!w RT @tite_kubo: あれ?まだ気付いてねえの?俺ひねくれてるから、こういうリプあると織姫の出番増えるんだぜー(笑)。 RT @iririitai

Kubo: “Ah? You still haven’t noticed? Since I’m feeling uncooperative, if there are such replies I will increase Orihime’s appearances!” (laugh)
Ayanatsubaki: “Well, it’s because I really hate characters like Orihime…!”
Kubo: “Oi, oi! I know you love her!” :

In the last tweet, it was an Orihime fan saying she hated Orihime in an attempt to get Kubo to draw more Orihime! I do believe myself that Sensei was straight up about Szayel not appearing anymore, though, and that makes me sad. :(

eta: from  stray_mikeneko in a comment below, Kubo-sensei also tweeted this in the context of the convo:
ザエルアポロもう出ねーぞってのはちょっと冗談がきつかったかなぁ。ザエルアポロファ
ンの人、真に受けてたらごめんよー。 9:55 AM Dec 10th

“When I said that Szayelaporro wouldn’t appear anymore, maybe the joke was a little harsh. Szayelaporro fans, I’m sorry if you took it seriously.” :-P

OH THANK YOU SENSEI!


*cries the tears of a fool*

So maybe those people who think Sensei is REALLY going to draw Orihime the more hate tweets he gets should be crying the bitter tears of fools too, ne? XD XD

Thanks for this Debbie! And as usual, thanks to Mezzo for taking the time to translate this!

BTW, to what part of the tweet was Kubo referring to when he said "Ah? You still haven't noticed?"
Is there something I'm missing?
_debbiechan_: COMMUNICATION_debbiechan_ on December 12th, 2010 09:37 pm (UTC)

I believe he's referring to the MANGA? Orihime's current panel time?

The second time the phrase "Ah? You still haven't noticed" is repeated is because it's in an RT (retweeted part of a message in twitter to give context to one's own tweet)

LOL.

Well, there are always idiots who take even the most obvious jokes and twist them to support their shipping agenda. Though I agree that this one goes to another level of retardation and desperation. That said most of the shippers are certainly not like that luckily.

I wonder if anyone is going to tweet him why are people saying such things again ? Are Japanese even as disappointed about her in the recent chapters as western fandom is ?



_debbiechan_: EXASPERATED ISHIDA_debbiechan_ on December 12th, 2010 09:56 pm (UTC)

The Japanese fandom hasn't even SEEN the chapter we have--you know, the one that people here have complained about.

OOOOOOH, that clears up the context of that last part! XD

Remember how I said I wasn't sure about the subject there? Well, if Ayanatsubaki is an Orihime fan, then I'd translate those last two tweets like this:

"Oooh, it's because I really hate characters like Orihime...!"
"Oi, oi! I know that you love her!" (laugh)
_debbiechan_: Kubo is my boyfriend 2_debbiechan_ on December 12th, 2010 09:58 pm (UTC)

Fixed. I didn't even notice when I copied it. Yes, he meant to say "I know that you love her!"

(Anonymous) on December 12th, 2010 09:58 pm (UTC)
Hatters gonna hate...for the Kubo love? *iz confuzzeld*

I don't know whether to be extremely amused or embarrassed by this whole ordeal. Oh Fandom, you so silly.
oh gallant piglet,: WONDERHATaizome on December 12th, 2010 11:48 pm (UTC)
Haha, I'm going with both. It's funny AND embarrassing.

Though NGL, had I been clued in on what was happening WHEN it was happening, I would have tweeted "hate" for Chad, Kon, Grimmjow, Pesche, Lilynette, Wonderweiss, and Mizuho. Just to see what he'd say. Thankfully I didn't though, 'cause lord knows the man gets pestered enough as it is. He seems more interested in talking about food than fandom, and who can blame him?

(Anonymous) on December 12th, 2010 10:30 pm (UTC)
It's more of "Kubo is going to do whatever the fuck he wants thing". He's racks off the money, he has the liberty.

He likes Orihime as a characters, that's pretty obvious. So he'll draw her, period. He also says that he likes to give panel time to unpopular characters like Mayuri or Tousen but that's really besides the point, Orihime's actually pretty famous in moonland.

Gotta say that the sheer drama that the "shipping" community has been spewing over such trivial bullshit mannerisms that are all-in-all overshadowed by the tension of the plot and new developments of the Psyren villains is nothing short of amazing. (Read pathetic)

Stay classy, shipping fans.

Hmmm seriously.. i can't understand people who DARE to tweet Kubo that they hate some characters.
They all should get a life instead of being a**holes about an MANGA ... they take stuff way to serious.

It makes me sort of sad, that people keep bitching around...
_debbiechan_: Chizuru_debbiechan_ on December 12th, 2010 11:39 pm (UTC)

ha, you would not BELIEVE some of the stuff I've seen tweeted to Sensei. He's always been in a good humor about most of it though. His comebacks are really snazzy.

Neko in Blueneko_in_blue on December 13th, 2010 02:13 am (UTC)

hahahha so amusing! thanks for sharing :D

kubo-sensei is so nice :) the way he keeps in touch with everybody, replying kindly to all is really touching. he coud be annoying and with an all-mighty-you-need-me attitude, but he is just the contrary :)

its been a while since I stopped reading Bleach because of how long took the aizen arc but i just started again and Im really thrilled, specially because ISHIDA-KUN HAS RETURNED! * IshiHime girly-fan*

why cant Orihime cure his wounds with looooooooove? but even the way Sensei tortures me is nice :D

debbiechan, I'm always re-reading your IshiHime romance/lemon fics, miss them a lot! :)

Why hi there! I hadn't heard from you in ages! It's been a long while since I've written lemony IshiHime romance. I still think I peaked with "The Risky Art of Listening" way back in 2007 or whenever ... ah, I want to write some more but time is soooo not what it used to be. Thanks for kind words about the fics, though--that always makes me happy.

You are such a cool dude, I love you lots hahaha! I can not beleive haters and fans can get so desperate(Including me XD) but Sensei he sure told them, he is such a fun guy. Lol!

Debbie you are awsome, thanks a lot dear. XD
Slipstremeslipstreme on December 13th, 2010 02:44 am (UTC)
LOL.

I figured the comment above about Szayel was because of the Hell arc becoming canon. Already assumed he was gone for good, and then to read the second one.

Stop playing with us!
Gah!

Cute. Though it is sad to see that people are actually trying that.
_debbiechan_: Espada Nunber Eight_debbiechan_ on December 13th, 2010 02:54 am (UTC)

It's like I keep having all these little funerals in my head for Szayel.

GAAAAAAH. And he keeps reviving, just like the perfect Jesus he is. XD
