That title page! Cutest or THE Cutest ever?

So good to see Karin smiling. And lol, Don Kanonji's show didn't get canceled after all, looks like.

I officially like Yukio. Anyone who back-talks their elders makes me lol. Video games... makes me wonder if his training for Ichigo is gonna be like one of the trials in early YYH, or Tron.

Ichigo's face in that final frame... oh help, I'm laughing so hard it hurts.

and yes Yukio is awesome. He is channeling his power from Matt of Death Note, but Xcution club policy prevents him from smoking!

Kubo, stop with the weird similarities to the Bount arc. Please. That arc needs to be set on FIRE. >_>;

Karin and Yuzu are too adorable <3333333333 The cover page of them is super cute, too. I also like "Berry in a Box" for the chapter title.

Riruka's still amusing. (Ichigo's still clueless.) But, um, dolls and hearts and ... .. . Dolls. Deadly pig dolls? Crazy blind-as-a-bat fangirl in a maid outfit, who uses hearts on things that she thinks are 'cute' or 'awesome', so they can enter her dollhouse? Yeahhh... okay. How much of this was Kubo's normal crack, and how much of it was his recent illness? ;__;

We have two more names of Fullbringers. That's nice. Yukio seems like he'll be a brat, so that's cool.

Riruka's expecting Ichigo to use Fullbring to defeat the pig doll... thing?

Pig doll thing makes me miss Kon D:

Now I'm not in love, but totally obsessed with Riruka :3

Also - when she brought him in her "training doll house" I was lamost sure to see Kon awainting Ichigo there. With something like: "How does it feel being like a plush toy?"

Lol, Riruka is scared by her own attraction to Ichigo. Good to see that KT chose an unique way of her expressing that feeling instead of the usual shounen mindless fangirl adoration.
Tsundere is really hit and miss for me but I love how Riruka does it. If the Fullbringers are villains I hope that she doesn't die.

Other than that, the Karin and Yuzu scene is cute (is that parallel to when they worried over Ichigo while he trained with the Visored?), and it's good to get the names for the other Fullbringers. "Jackie" suits the other woman.

Seems like there's some bad blood between Yukio and Riruka. I hope again that this doesn't somehow lead to her doom. Ah, but it's a bit early for these kinds of predictions.

And Ichigo fighting plushies for training is pure crack.
Super Nintendo Chalmersstrawberries_85 on January 26th, 2011 11:57 pm (UTC)
Oh Ichigo, I love your silly expressions. <3

Karin and Yuzu - so adorable and beautiful!

Other than that...I can't say I really care about this chapter. The new characters aren't really making a lasting impression on me. D:
hinodehhinodeh on January 27th, 2011 12:16 am (UTC)
No need to feel bad about not liking the Fullbringers.

I personally do because they're a breath of fresh air for me and I like their character designs.

I've gotten kind of burnt out on some of the Bleach regulars, especially in light of the fact, that in the last two years, few of them got meaningful development and instead just appeard for the sake of appearing and padding the already slow story further.

But as I said, you shouldn't feel bad for not liking the new guys. Different tastes and all that.

I am kind of unimpressed.

The new people get on my nerves a lot (why is everybody falling in love with Riruka? she's Hiyori in black and I never liked Hiyori), no progress regarding Ishida and Ichigo in the doll house strikes me more embarassing than funny.

Super Nintendo Chalmersstrawberries_85 on January 27th, 2011 12:07 am (UTC)
This.

Thank you, now I don't feel so bad about disliking the new people. :p And the chapter was just...meh (other than the Karin/Yuzu scene because their adorableness gets to me and I like Ichigo's derpy expressions too). I got all excited last chapter because of Chad and now...Bleach is just crazy. :p

Astraea: ichigo good timelady_leia_solo on January 27th, 2011 12:29 am (UTC)
I thought Yuzu and Karin were cute, but I'm a bit meh about the chapter itself.
chalitychality on January 27th, 2011 12:46 am (UTC)
When Ichigo asked about his spacious new training area, I braced myself for another empty desert and readied a groan just in case, but this is certainly a different venue.

The entire setup feels a bit familiar, though. When Riruka announced the name of her Fullbring, I immediately thought of the Chapter Black arc of Yu Yu Hakusho. I guess a bit of thematic overlap is inevitable when you read a lot of shounen over the years, but early Bleach (and the Karin and Yuzu interaction this chapter) felt a lot more fresh.

Maybe I'm just tired tonight, but this chapter didn't make as much of an impression as the last one. Here's hoping it's just a momentary lull.
oh gallant piglet,aizome on January 27th, 2011 12:51 am (UTC)
Re: YYH, yes! I got some of the same feeling when seeing Yukio playing video games, and wondering what his training with Ichigo will be.

Karin and Yuzu are very lovable little sisters. The girls always seem alone at home and I wonder if Isshin ever came back again.

I'll try to get use to the Fullbringers, but unfortunately they're also making me miss the Vizards even more *sigh*. Riruka with a dollhouse is funny and I figure she's more like a trickster than a fighter with a weapon. Hmm.. turn in next week for the epic battle: Ichigo vs. Piggie!

This is already tiresome.

Yuzu and Karin are A+ grade cute, however.

I'm with those thinking the chapter is kinda eh. I understand that it's a transition chapter, so I guess I should be patient w/ the pace as always. We also didn't get to see Chad either :(

Yuzu & Karin were cute as always (Karin has really, uh, filled out hasn't she? *Isn't a perv...*).

I'm not really loving the new characters. Yukio seems pretty cute & bratty so I can maybe see him growing on me, but meh on the others. I'm just not getting into Riruka's character like everyone else is, and this is coming from someone who is a fan of Hiyori.

Ichigo, behind youuuu! Behind youuuu! I MISS KON.

That said, there's something about Riruka's powers that actually seem kind of sad to me. I wonder if someone just happens to have an affinity with an object, or if it occurs due to a lot of time spent with it? Idk, in my head there's a lonely childhood with only dolls for company... making the world the way she wanted it the only way she could...

/ramblez, will probably be totally wrong!

rabidbunny001rabidbunny001 on January 27th, 2011 12:59 am (UTC)
I actually quite enjoyed this chapter. I'll admit that I groaned a bit when the word "training" was brought up, but I can definitely live with watching Ichigo run around a demented dollhouse XD.

I'm wondering whether Karin was just worried and staying up late to wait for Ichigo, or if she's actually up to something. At any rate, I loved the interaction between Ichigo and his sisters- it feels like maybe they'll finally get some more significant development in this arc.

Re: the new characters-- hey, at least Kubo managed to limit the number to five this time! XD I'm not wild about any of them in particular, but Riruka is quickly growing on me, which surprises me because I didn't like Hiyori all that much. For some reason, I thought Riruka looked quite pretty in this chapter. Not that she didn't look good before, but her spazzy antics kinda distracted from her overall appearance.
peca_06peca_06 on January 27th, 2011 01:09 am (UTC)
Crack is an understatement XDDD ... But I loved it. LMAO! at Ichigo complaining of "what do you want this time!" but being right there like a flash XDD. Nuuu, he doesn't want his powers back at all fufufu!
The cute little heart as a pass stuck to Ichigo awwww and Riruka not wanting Ichigo to get too close to her because she likes him so much, is hilarious and cute as well <333. Ichigo is like wtf is up with her (that is why men are always saying "Pff WOMEN!, I can't understand them" XDDD he is dense, so dense! ).

I'm liking Riruka. She is the best kind of Tsundere and reminds me of Taiga in some instances ^__^. Ichigo now that he has a goal in mind , his mood has gotten tons better and the sisters totally see it XD. They are so huggable. Its good to see that <333. I wonder why Chad wasn't there for this. He is so busy lately :P ... Maybe in future chapters.
Such a fun chappy it is a welcomed breath of fresh air :).
Can't wait to see Ichigo fighting the plushy, that reminds me a little of the hollow that said "beef and pork" lol.
peca_06peca_06 on January 27th, 2011 07:07 am (UTC)
hehe I also wonder, what is Ichigo going to do, with a power like Riruka's...??? It'll be really funny to see Ichigo putting cute things in boxes XDDDDD

_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on January 27th, 2011 01:32 am (UTC)

Weeeeeeeeeee! Dollies! Dollies! Yes, yes, I want Riruka's powers!

Yuzu and Karin--so cute. This chapter was just pinchable on the cheeks cute. No Chad and no Orihime, bummer but still a weird fun chapter... the title and cover page is too much cute to bear...

you know that things are going to get creepy eventually so let's just enjoy the moment.

I'm really loving Riruka in that way that I can almost anticipate Kubo giving her an angsty backstory already and taking her away from me--Nooo, don't do it, Sensei! I don't trust you anymore! :( She doesn't remind me of Hiyori--she's way too girly. She's annoying, yes, but her quirks are all her own. I started liking her when she revealed she didn't wear her contacts or glasses. Her Ichigo crush has a little character to it now. She has an "adorable" shrinking power. <3

Carry on, Kubo.
nehalenia: ichiishi dolls w szayelnehalenia on January 27th, 2011 01:53 am (UTC)
Yeah, suddenly it made sense for her to have spazzed over Ichigo -- "He's a HOTTIE!!!!" -- because otherwise she couldn't have used her powers on him.

I have a feeling that her near-sightedness is going to come in awfully handy. There are probably things in that dollhouse that only a blind person would think are cute. XD

I WELCOME a training arc.

Training arc = shinigami powers.

Shinigami powers very likely = Rukia appearing.

After all, its not we can stew in the pre-training muck forever. Plot has to progress, at least this time its in a semi-timely fashion. And its cracky and entertaining and Kubo is at least giving us a glance at what Ichigo's family is doing while he's on ANOTHER sabbatical.

Which reminds me. Two days Ichigo was gone, and Isshin is still out of town. Which means the twins have been home alone for two days straight. Disapproving mother hen frown goes here.

I TOTALLY LIKES ichigo´s face expressions, they were completely careless, I was beginning to wonder when I would see his face that relax! I can´t wait for him to get back his powers! and the reunion with rukia!!!!!!!! Almost everybody likes riruka... I don´t know she´s kind of annoying... that´s my personal opinion please don´t hit me T^T. How is tite kubo? has he recovered? waaah tite pleaseeee take care of yourself and make sure to draw the next chapter!!!!

nehalenia: ichigo tentaclesnehalenia on January 27th, 2011 01:49 am (UTC)
OK, while I'm still on the fence about most of the new characters, I'm finding it hard not to like Riruka.

Honestly, I wasn't expecting to like this chapter, but I can't seem to resist Derpface!Ichigo. (The fighting between the FBs did nothing for me, though, and seemed more like filler than development. At least we have names for them now, though.)

BTW, did anyone else notice that Riruka's "incantation" for her power -- "I permit you" -- is kind of the opposite of Orihime's incantation of "I reject"? It makes me wonder if this is just a coincidence or if any of the other FBs will have incantations that reflect those of other characters.

As for the Dollhouse of Mystery, honestly I still can't figure out whether it's more funny than creepy (or vice versa). All I know is that I lol'd at the pig plushie, but gave a bit of a shiver as well. XD

Nope, but that's a very instersting detail you've pointed out. I would love to pieces I KT uses this as some sort of way to pull outr Orihime's development
jpblackjpblack on January 27th, 2011 01:52 am (UTC)
Kon is in that dollhouse. He disappeared one day, no one cared, and Riruka found him. At least, that's what I'm calling about his absence.
