BLEACH 464 is out!  

Wow, so much content this week, and definitely an abnormal amount of backgrounds! Getting away from the scenery, everything seems to be set in motion. I still feel like Kutsuzawa's not dead, because why would Kubo just let Kenpachi sit there? But then, why would he be released from the chatroom if Kutsuzawa was still alive? It doesn't look Tsukishima and Byakuya are in a chatroom, so perhaps he'll come help out, but they can create whole stages so who knows. I'm not sure where Ishida is going with his theory. A substitute that isn't dead or alive? Regardless, great to see Ichigo back to his old self. Kubo using the Fullbringers to poke fun at storytelling clichés again. It's the second time he's used "that girl will die/is dead!" Or third time, if you go way back to when Ulquiorra did it with Rukia and Orihime and it was played completely straight. Interesting Riruka doesn't seem to have those earlier conflictions about fighting right now. Maybe she just didn't want to fight Ichigo, heh.
Remember not to tweet Kubo or post art from it until next week. Also, be wary of Mangareader's ads.

Ichigo here reminds me too much of Rukia scolding Ichigo... Like, TOO much! 0.o

Quick chapter! Rukia being a victim to the cuteness of plushes cracked me up.

Ichigo x Ishida bartender was cute, even though Ishida's words are mysterious about Ginjou's real nature. So, is he dead or alive?

Ominous!Ishida is ominous indeed.

His reflections reminded me a bit of his thoughts just before he took Orihime to the dome, and... well.

We all know how that one ended.

Is it only me, or was Byakuya about to smile in the end? He sure didn't, but it looked like he just needed another second and we'll see him smiling :D

It was frightening though...

"Quiet Chamber, Noisy Heart" is a great title... whose heart is clamoring?

I'm flailing over all the IchiIshi banter--the love kick, the Ichi telling Ishida to dry his glasses (aaaaaaah!) and BLESS YOU MAH BOY ISHIDA FOR YOUR INTERNAL MONOLOGUE.

I love the idea that Sensei is going to be switching back and forth from fights to keep things lively.

Yachiru's hair accessory wins. I want to see knock-offs/ unofficial Bleach merchandise available next week on EBAY.

Byakuya's eyelashes are longer than Tsukishima's. He wins the pretteh contest round one.

RUKIAAAAAAAAAAA, you're awesome--you come in, fix Ichigo, attend to a wounded comrade and go right into the fighting. I don't see the point of throwing all those lifeless plushies at her but I see Riruka's hesitation here. She's got the Love Gun on her--the suspense is killing me. What does the Love Gun doooooo?

ISHIDAAAAAAAAAA. YOU'RE BAAAAAACK. A double-team with Ichi? I DIDN'T DARE TO EVEN HOPE. Thank you, Sensei. Thank you very much with all my love forever and ever.

My heart is fluttering utterly out of control. I could not BELIEVE Sensei jumped between 5 fights in one chapter. I just about died on every page.

RUKIA gets things DONE.

Byakuya accusing Tsukishima of being shameful and cowardly = why I fell in love with him. Sure he wins every pretteh contest ever (in fact, is it even a contest?) but I absolutely love him for his unbreakable senses of honor, pride, and loyalty.

this chapter

i can't

JUST THAT FACE FOREVER. Hnngh I love when Ishida has ominous internal monologues. The fact he was so married to Ichigo this chapter made me sad for Ginjou. Like, he should have Tsukishima standing behind him. I can't fathom how Tsukishima will get out of his fight with Byakuya still breathing (and he'd then have to get into the other chatroom), but... ): lol I'm so attached to that jerkoff.

Damn you ominous!Ishida, you're making my head hurt! At least you look really freaking handsome while doing it, I'll give you points for that. Hmph.

I loved the bromance between Ichigo and Ishida in this chapter. I think Ichigo is learning some new skills from Rukia.

As for how much I love Rukia and everything about her right now, I think scuttling has the right idea:

x forever.

She just continues to impress me and I love every moment of it. ♥ Also, I LOVE Yachiru's "Rukia" haircut and that hair accessory! Do want! It's adorable. ♥

As for the negatives: if Tsukishima is killed off quickly I won't be very happy and I'm not sure if anything could make me feel better about it.

Byakuya's new hair: I'm not that impressed to be honest, but at least it looks good on the last page.

And ISHIDA omg! I love the Ishida/Ichigo interaction so much, unf.<3 and I'm so happy that the ominous stare Ishida gave Ichigo way back then finally got explained! Rukia healing Ishida? How awesome can you be, girl? :D

...I'm not sure about Nii-sama's new hairstyle. Kubo needs to get used to drawing him... otherwise that last panel of Nii-sama is definiitely gorgeous.♥

Is it even legal for Rukia to be this awesome? I wonder. She's been so productive ajkaljdkjl I love her character so much. And her reaction to the plushies jakdjklsajdaklsdjlasdjkldjald. Cannot form thoughts right now jakdljs.

I love Byakuya's new look. The Kuchiki siblings shine, as usual.

*attempts to resist the urge to jump to conclusions*



*attempt fails*

So let me see if I understand this... Tsukishima Shuukuro, one of the, if not THE, largest driving forces in this arc... is going to be fodderized so that we can have some more "OMG! BYAKUYA IS SO KEWL!" moments?

Kubo, you suck. Giriko could die like that because he was a background character with all the development of a shallow mud puddle, you can't do that to everyone...

The Ichi-Ishi is off the charts XDDDD, loved the kick to the arse!. It has been a while they didn't have a bonding/love-rival moment ^^ (since they fought the delinquents at the beginning of this arc together?), but yeah, he is sure ominous like everyone has stated before me. Really bad vibes about that. I always thought Ginjou was rotten to the chore, let's see what he is or was up to...

Love the title of the chapter... I wonder what it means.

Rukia yelling "temme where are you?!" and looking like she is fighting the urge to play with the plushies herself is cute and kick ass at the same time XD. I knew she was healing Ishida ^^. She sure is a busy bee, so glad to see her again <333

Riruka's gun... Really intriguing as to what its function is, coming from her :P. She sure is hesitating and I wonder what she'll do next.

Aw Byakuya's respect for Ichigo shines through hehe :D. I hope their fight lasts a while, Tsukishima has been an intriguing character and shouldn't die right away.

Yachiruuuu and her crossed bones lol <3 It reminds me of Pebbles from the Flinstones a bit.

This chapter makes me pleased for all reasons different than the norm, like Yachiru and her adorable hair clip! :D

Rukia's fight is going about as well as everyone figured, though that's not to say it's a bad thing. I only hope somehow the magic of ~FRIENDSHIP~ and ~BUNNIES~ brings these two women together in harmony.

I think I'm one of the few who is just indifferent about Byakuya and his cool factor. Must be my Inner Squad 11 fangirlism.
oh gallant piglet,: CRAAAABSaizome on September 13th, 2011 08:21 pm (UTC)
I'm with you completely here. Byakuya never interested me much aside from his flashback in TBtP.

All they need is for Yumi to show up to help Renji and I'd be the happiest 11th fanboy ever. :D

In my headcanon, Yachiru snuck in the Kuchiki mansion and gave Rukia that haircut and when she saw how cute Rukia looked, she gave it to herself.

So happy that Ishida had more presence in this chapter. I love that kid to bits. He always has the cutest interactions with Ichigo.

Rukia's "fight" with Riruka I knew was going to be hilarious. I wonder if Rukia will find her or we see her later, on top a throne of plush with an extremely too satisfied look on her face and Riruka thinking she created a monster.

Oh gosh...this chapter...I was laughing so much

Ichigo/Ishida scene: I see the fangirls squealing...I liked that Ishida is healed and not lying somwhere bleeding to death. Looking forward to the fight against Ginjou but then Ishida's inner monologue..*shivers*

Hitsu vs Yukio; I am still waiting...

Rukia vs Rirukia: lol on the plushies. Poor Rukia....loved Riruka's facial expression...

Byakuya vs Tsukishima: in all honesty, this has to be the hottest of all fights. Two bishies battling it out. And Byakuya on the last page...do want!

It was nice to see Yachiru and lol at her hairclips. Now Ken-chan, is your battle really over?

I'm wondering if Byakuya will win against his opponent? Hmmm

Also damn I hope Rukia kicks Riruka's ass! Although I like both girls.

This chapter was ama~azing. I want to response to everyone's posts here, but basically I agree with everything that is wonderful about this chapter. [insert wtf smiley here]

Loooved seeing Yachiru! She's so cute, especially her hairclip and when she told Kenpachi that everyone had to go home together or "Grandpa" would get mad. XD

Rukia, you sweetie, thanks for healing my boy. ;_; You're so freakin' efficient. Not to mention adorable. I'm happy Kubo fulfilled our desires to see Rukia fawning over Riruka's cutestuffs. XD I'm looking forward to the love-gun.

Wasn't Uryuu's entrance a surprise!? He's always getting introduced by his feet (lol) but I didn't dare believe it was really him. Oh, Kubo, I'm sorry for criticizing you in my mind for not having him shown to be healed (though I still raise my brows at Ichigo not taking a second to check to make sure Uryuu was getting medical attention haha). I immediately assumed he wouldn't do anything, but he's even teaming up with Ichigo!? <333 And just everything about their interaction was awesome; bromance kick, apology (aw), addressing old plot thread, ominous!Ishida, etc.

Byakuya, stay fabulous.

Glad we got to see bits of most of the fights. Not much happened with Shiro, though. Now I wanna see Ikkaku and Renji. I don't really get why Jackie chose to fight Renji.

Only bothersome points:
Giriko was finished a bit too quickly. I at least wanted to see what his new powers can do aside from making him large or whatever. And now Ken's bored!
But more importantly...!
Why is Byakuya's hair tucked into his cloak? XD It looks a bit odd though I love his hair.

Ramble, ramble~

Took some time away from Bleach, and yaaaay came back to some interesting shenanigans. I hope Kubo sensei utilizes the switching around to multiple fights more often, it keeps things exciting and fresh.
tamzin: rukieyesconquistadora on September 13th, 2011 08:18 pm (UTC)
So gooood... this chapter T-T Can't find any fault with it other than Ishida raising more questions, which isn't really a fault so much as WE HAVE ENOUGH TO THINK ABOUT ISHIDA ALRIGHT. I'm pretty sure he was saying "You're just like..." Rukia there. Ichigo also has the ability to bring people back from the edge when he isn't in a funk himself. The IshiIchi duo has needed to happen for a long time now, but I'm not sure how much Ishida will be able to do with that injury. Hopefully he'll show us what he's got strategy-wise and not just be foddered in two minutes.


Byakuya's honor/pride is back. Can't say no to seeing Niisama being all justicey and pretty~
erisalia on September 13th, 2011 08:30 pm (UTC)
Was anyone else confused by the Hitsu/Yukio convo? Does Yukio know about momo? It sounds like a direct reference to here : http://www.mangafox.com/manga/bleach/v44/c392/19.html
oh gallant piglet,aizome on September 13th, 2011 08:42 pm (UTC)
I immediately thought of Momo too. If Ginjou knows so much about Ichigo - even Isshin - It's not out of the question for the other FBers to know about the other shinigami.

But honestly though, isn't it a gaming trope-thing? Like a Zelda reference or something. It could just be Yukio talking shit. ^^

I have no complaints. Sorry balladbird, but I'm glad the bartender dude did in fact kick it so quickly. He was unworthy of his initial character design, anyway.

Kick-to-the-head = showing love in Bleach. XD I'll never stop saying it.

Oh, I'm glad Giriko kicked the bucket fast, myself. XD hard to care about a character who had all of ten lines of development, half of which was contradicted by the large ham he turned into a couple weeks back.

mine was a pre-emptive rant about the inevitable undignified death Tsuki-chan is gonna get. Though I was a bit too negative. I'll apologize for it some other time.

Enjoyed all the bouncing around between fights, especially looking forward to more Rukia/Riruka screentime beyond lolzy plush antics.

Hoping some of them make it out alive for more development, esp Tsuki and Riruka. Could be interesting.
