Breaking News: Ulquiorra on Cover of UnMasked  

I really should be sitting on this news since I only have one source but it's a HIGHLY RELIABLE ONE. I couldn't contain myself.

Breaking news, credit to poppy_moon and as always, Annie:

The cover for Unmasked is ULQUIORRA. Sensei has drawn pictures of the Arrancar without their masks. There will be a spread, a BLEACH horoscope and a BLEACH quiz. The novel will be telling the continuation story of a character but we don't know which character.

Also, Ginjou is the cover for Volume 50

eta: TRANSLATION BY CEZARIA: According to the ad, there will be a never-before-published manga drawn by Kubo that tells the story of "What is it that Ulquiorra's looking at?"

If that's true, it only makes sense... Ulquiorra was the most focused upon Arrancar. If its a story about one, his would make sense too since we never got flashback for him. I hope this news is true!.

YAY!

Hmm...continuation story for a character...I wonder if it will be Ulquiorra, which may mean his story will be wrapped up in UnMasked...*sigh*.

Seems so, but I can't muster the energy to complain, since getting anything makes me happy, and KT's hints from the 2009 Jump Festa will be proven meaningful rather than lies to keep Ulquiorra fans on board.

I don't know how to feel if he wraps up Grimmjow's and Nel's fates in supplementary material and not the manga proper...

Wasn't there some sort of hint a while ago that Grimmjow is alive and may return? O_o

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! *pumps fist*

Also, more arrancar without masks? It may be a small thing, but I am eternally grateful that KT has granted this humble fandom wish! I'm so excited!

Looking forward to the spread, and the horoscope adn quiz should be entertaining.

Seems like my feeling was also right about how this novel wouldn't be about Karakura events for once and center on Ichigo and Rukia.

Ginjou cover for 50 seems only natural.
jpblackjpblack on May 21st, 2011 02:42 pm (UTC)
The novel is separate from the fanbook, correct? If we are allowed to read into the wording, "continuation" implies the future. It honestly could be any Shinigami or Arrancar...

Or, "continuation" means "more information," which makes it all even broader...

Wishful thinking: Expansion on the Yoruichi/Byakuya relationship.

As someone who ships it like burning, I approve whole-heartedly.

FUCK YES. Thank you to poppy_moon, Annie, and _debbiechan_ for the info :)

And yeah, the novel won't elaborate on any buzz-worthy topics like GJ/Ulq/Nel. They're usually stories that don't impact the plot of the manga itself.

Nyaro~n from BA found an UNMASKED ad where Ulquiorra & Kon are spamming over.



LOL, I can see Ulqui's long eyelashes XD

Cool, thank you! Though now I wonder where that shot of Ulq's eyes comes from. I don't remember it. *goes to check her Bleach volumes*

An Ulquiorra cover is grand but a picture of the Arrancar without their masks is the most exciting news to me!
maewiemaewie on May 21st, 2011 07:44 pm (UTC)
If thats true..then Kubo will conclude the story of the arrancars in a separate medium; not in the official bleach storyline.
I do like seeing Ulquiorra again; however not like this :(
they're all just third eye blind lyricslackasexical on May 21st, 2011 08:27 pm (UTC)
There's nothing to indicate that the novel will have anything to do with Ulquiorra or any of the more important Arrancar. Kubo doesn't write the novels - he approves them. The previous two were slice-of-life style IchiRuki stories that had no relation to the manga plot. The novels do not typically discuss major plot points that draw heavily from canon or fill in the gaps. Kubo does that himself, not via proxy.

I don't know if it's the fact that Ulquiorra gets the cover that has people thinking he will be the subject of the novel, but like I said, there's no logical reason to assume he will be.

...and the tears rolled
stares at empty wallet, lower lip quivering

I...I guess I'll just have to hope that someone posts pictures of the cover and spread... sobsobsob

Sarcasm off

I highly doubt the novel will be a big impact on anything canon. I think Kubo will find someway to tie their fate into the manga proper, if he ever wants to destroy the ambiguity around some of their ends. (The strange thing is that Ulquiorra's death, at face value, seems to be the least ambiguous- he turned to ash and was blown across the vast sands of Hueco Mundo-and yet there are many people, me included, who don't see his story as over. Odd)

Ginjou as the cover for Vol 50? Wonder what pose he'll be in- practically every other volume cover has had the character facing, if not looking at, the reader, yet Kubo seems to like doing Ginjou's spreads from side angles, like he's not even paying attention.

Re: ...and the tears rolled
Because out of nearly all Arrancar Ulquiorra lacked a backstory, or some kind of explanation for his actions.

have I seen you around hitman_reborn?

Well, since only the tail end of the Ulquiorra-centric chapters will be addressed with Unmasked, the cover could have been Ichigo or Aizen...Ulquiorra was a logical choice but not a certainty IMO.
