Don't Lose to Earthquake Fanart and No WSJ this week  

The following was shared by Nacchan in the IchiRuki FC at BA today:

sharing a fanart by.チサカ that she made for the earthquake tragedy

地震に、負けないで - Don't lose to earthquake



Ichigo : yo! come on, give me your hand
Rukia : are you all right? how's your condition?


Also, I'm hearing from Annie that there is no WSJ this week and that means that Japan has not read "Mute Friendship" yet. I'm uncertain as to whether or not we'll have spoilers but please no complaining here out of respect for the tragedy in Japan. Tokyo is struggling to resume normality and rolling black-outs may continue throughout April. People are at work, confused by the trains, doing the best they can and behaving admirably under trying circumstances. We can all certainly be patient for our manga and anime fix. Our hearts are with Japan!

ETA status of WSJ releases:


The release date for the current issue is Sat: "2011 No.16 19/3/11(Sat) on sale!"

Statement release from WSJ: "本日(3/14)以降に刊行予定でした週刊少年ジャンプおよび集英社の全雑誌は、全国的に発売が不確定の地区が多くご ざいます。大変ご迷惑をおかけしますが、ご了承下さい。"

Shueisha's magazines will be diffitult to distributed to every regions in Japan. So, I think the regions with major damages, like Sendai and Miyagi, will not be getting the magazines for awhile.


This sounds to me like it will be business as usual soon except for areas profoundly affected by the quake and tsunami.

That's a beautiful fanart.

I'm worried not just about my favorite mangakas and J-Pop artists but about everyone there. I live in coastal Southern California and just having earthquakes is bad enough. Having a tsunami roll through...I don't know how bad that could get. My heart is with everyone in Japan. I can go without my manga for a while as long as everyone's safe.

I lived through Katrina and quite a few hurricanes here on the Gulf coast--I know how trying these things can be. I really admire how efficient the Japanese government is being right now and hats off to the famous calm of the Japanese people. Be strong, Japan. We know you are suffering but you will recover.

Question: I'm offering to write fic for auction at help_japan. Can we have a post where people who are up for auction can leave their links? Or did I miss one already?
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on March 15th, 2011 06:03 am (UTC)

Please start one. I don't know about these auction sites.

Um, isn't it kinda morbid to have Ichigo and Rukia in SHINIGAMI form helping people? Wouldn't that mean they're helping the dead? X)

LOL, I thought the same. :P
Stacey: Fantasystace_s on March 14th, 2011 09:23 pm (UTC)
That was the exact same thing that went through my mind.
nivek01: IchiRukinivek01 on March 14th, 2011 09:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah...yeah, that was my thought as well.

Doh. If only they weren't in their shinigami outfits.

I'm sure the person didn't mean it to be seen that way though :)
Kim!spartydragon on March 15th, 2011 12:26 am (UTC)
Yeah, just an unfortunate wardrobe choice most likely. X)
_debbiechan_: bleach_debbiechan_ on March 15th, 2011 07:50 am (UTC)

I really don't think of Shinigami in Bleach as traditional shinigami at ALL anymore. Honestly, when's the last time you saw Ichigo or Rukia or KENPACHI perform a soul burial? You think of these people as warriors and soldiers.

I think of Ichigo and Rukia as heroic. The art conveys that to me. There's nothing at all unfortunate about the clothes choice to me.
Kim!: Mushroom Mushroomspartydragon on March 25th, 2011 05:09 pm (UTC)
Ah, yes, but they do all of these heroic things in the afterlife. Unseen by the living (for the most part). They're basically stewards of the reincarnation cycle, so while many of their actions protect the living, their primary focus is to keep an eye on those who are not presently occupying the living world as living beings.

Logically speaking, if Ichigo and Rukia were working the disaster zone as shinigami, they'd be there warding off the hordes of hollows drawn to the scene, and preforming soul burials. Noble work indeed, but considering what just happened... kinda morbid.

The Japanese people are impressing me with how they're reacting to this disaster. I've seen some footage of the beginnings of the tsunami, and it's certainly not pretty. I'd expected them to call on any kind of aid possible-but nope, they're soldiering through, and doing quite a good job at it.

As far as the WSJ goes, it's good to hear some actual news on it. I would be surprised-and slightly horrified-if spoilers or anything like that popped up, considering what's going on (and Mangastream has already stated that they wont be posting anything new "for a while"). At the same time though, they are a business, so I wonder how long they can possibly go for before they HAVE TO put something up.
Kim!: Nose Ponies!!!!spartydragon on March 14th, 2011 09:58 pm (UTC)
I'd say next week at the earliest. Japans trying to get back to business as usual ASAP, and that would likely be a big part of it. Plus, well, people are gonna need something to read - especially kids. Having something fun to escape in to is an oft under-appreciated part of disaster relief.
nivek01nivek01 on March 14th, 2011 10:53 pm (UTC)
Agreed. I've been reading people saying that it's going to be MONTHS AND MONTHS, OH MY! And I wonder if they're completely thinking this through.
Also, +1 for that last sentence. One time, there was really bad flooding in the area I lived in, and my basement was basically submerged. My finished, fully furnished, basement. All four members of my family about went insane rebuilding, so I definitely agree that having WSJ handy for really anyone who wants to read it would be a good thing.

Seems like next week at the earliest is what it will be.

The release date for the current issue is Sat: "2011 No.16 19/3/11(Sat) on sale!"

Statement release from WSJ: "本日(3/14)以降に刊行予定でした週刊少年ジャンプおよび集英社の全雑誌は、全国的に発売が不確定の地区が多くご ざいます。大変ご迷惑をおかけしますが、ご了承下さい。"

I'll what it's necessary since there are more important things to worry about. They gonna be onto the publication after all, they always rises from their ashes.

Japan! <3
