First year as a Bleach fan I didn't write a fic. Also the first year that Kubo's skipped a chapter for SJ. That doesn't mean the editors didn't feed the shipwars, though. There's a copy/paste ad in this week's 7/7 issue that features Ichigo and Orihime.

Ichigo: They don't seem like enemies
Orihime: We need to welcome them!!
Looks like they're predicting the landing of the pissed-off Visored army? Anyway, the romance clues are going to be piling up--I consider this one a throwaway since it's not from Kubo and is a pastiche of his drawings from those crazy editors. Looking forward to the Tanabata season, nonetheless.
Oh, IchiRuki got the cover for the Jump 40th anniversary issue. http://www.jumpland.com/ Not romantic either, but let's keep the ships hopping.
Other bleachness Tanabata offerings. My wish for this year was that Kubo-sensei would have a good time at Comic-con in the States and not be eaten alive by fans. <3
