Volume 34 came out with a release date of July 4. Some Bleach fans speculate that has something to do with Kubo's little drawing over his usual flap cover comment.
The little creature does look like an Uncle Sam parody pointing at you. Given Kubo's remarks about American fanart not long ago and his upcoming trip to the States, this explanation seems likely to me.
In any event, one of the things I love most about Kubo is his riddling nature--a little doodle like this can occupy my morning.

Does anyone recognize the little creature in the picture? starlady38 says that the feller in the illustration may be a reference to whatever manga-ka Kubo refers to hanging out with in his flap-page blurb
Recently, I've been meeting frequently with a manga-ka-san of a level I can't even believe myself. It's really fun. At the least, when we meet we talk about manga and things. It's incredibly fun.
I might possibly like manga.
Even though I don't read manga much.
melody_mix at BA has a slightly different translation. According to it, maybe Kubo isn't hobnobbing with a bigtime manga-ka but maybe hanging with poor, as yet untainted by responsibility and deadlines types? Either way, I hope he's having fun. Guy needs cheering up.
I’ve been meeting with manga-kas who are unbelievably poor.
It is very fun.
And we meet and talk about mangas.
It is really fun.
Really like manga.
I hardly read them.
Ok, change of pace.
Take a useless poll. Why not. It's the weekend. You may check as many boxes as you like for each question.

Thank you for participating in a perfectly useless poll. If you have more time to kill, tell me in the comments section what you believe will happen to Hanatarou in Hueco Mundo.
The prediction game is hellafun. Just looking at some recent ones played here on bleachness and no one guessed Shinji was you know what.
