Ulquiorra's New Poem + Volume 40 stuff (NOW WITH PICS!)  

High Res Scans Download HERE.

The cover. Tagline is : The silent and the rowdy, the battle with the heart on the line!

Character page, I lol'd at the position of the characters.

And finally.....Lolly WTF? She was saved by Ishida wtf?

The little in-between chapter sketches are of animals that represent the sins. I'll scan them at a later date since they're not that important/ my camera is out of battery.

Envy - snake
gluttony - pig
greed - fox
pride - lion
sloth - bear
wrath - unicorn
lust - scorpion


I envy because of the heart
I glutton because of the heart
I covet because of the heart
I am prideful because of the heart
I sloth because of the heart
I rage because of the heart
Because of the heart
I lust for everything about you

==End Poem==

FUUUUCCCK <--- this is all I can say.
Yeah I welcome anyone to challenge my translation in case you think I twisted it to fit my little shipper fantasies.

Edit: Since you don't have the balls to come out of your little private forum and let the bigger Bleach world see your objections, I'm going to do you a favour and post it here:

Poetry is so tricky it's no fun to translate. There's a huge amount of vagueness in this poem so it's subject to a huge amount of interpretation.

That said, the verb in the last line, 欲する、actually doesn't mean 'lust' but instead means something like 'wish for' or 'desire,' and お前のすべて means 'everything about you' in the sense of 'your personal attributes.' Therefore, the last sentence really means something like, 'I want everything that you have/possess.' The translator here seems to want to be trying to make this into a twisted love poem when it's not.

I KNOW 欲する isn't "lust" per se. I used the word Lust to make it fit with the 7 sins theme. It literally means desire but ROFL that makes a fundamental difference HOW?

And お前のすべて is "everything about you". You think you're so smart, you could take away the meaning if you translate it as "everything you own". That's not how the "の" works in Japanese, sorry. :) 恵子の猫 (Keiko no neko) means Keiko's cat, and it could imply "the cat Keiko owns". However, Keiko may not own the cat, she may just be having it in her arms while you refer to it. :D

If anything, it literally means "your everything/entirety" because
すべて "subete" is a noun, which does not imply "everything you own". "Everything you own" is, in the simplest terms: お前の持つすべて.  The 持つ is needed because it means "to possess, to own". Which お前のすべて does not have.

If a bandit came up to a Japanese person  and demanded
お前のすべて, they would be confused because that sounds more like a demand for your hand in marriage than for your possessions.

Hell, how about some overkill and a private Japanese lesson?
の can also be used to identify a property of the subject noun. 海の見える町 means "the town where you can see the ocean". It is the town(), where the property is that you can see something from a town (見える), and what is it you can see? The ocean of course (海).  I see no possessive terms there :D Do you want to translate it as "the seeing town the ocean owns"? I think not.

I await your next rebuttal to this.

Kubo's words:




I went to the National Museum of Natural Science at Ueno recently, and I saw the Tyrannosaurus Rex I've always wanted to see.


If I wasn't a mangaka, I would become a Hercules Rhinoceros beetle or a tyrannosaurus rex.

That's how much I like them (lennan  pointed this out to me, I thought it meant "that's how I'd like for my life to be")

==End Kubo's words==

Also, it seems that from the extras in the volume, Lolly is still alive.

Seriously. I love that the ship I hopped on as sort of a fun crack pairing way back when eventually became a strong contender with Ichiruki for my Bleach OTP (Sorry Ishihime, I still like you... but...) and has now pretty much been confirmed as canon, and maybe even quasi-requited canon.

Even if I still want Ulquiorra back dangit.

Come now, you just KNOW that someone is going to attempt to turn the words around to claim that they're aimed at Ichigo or Aizen... or that they're coming from Ichigo as opposed to Ulquiorra. : P

Seriously, that poem sounds epic. I did a happy dance, and immediately lost the mojo I needed to write a horror piece. ^^ Ah well, always later.

I'm curious to know what the bonus materials are, now, though.

Man, I really hope people don't start with crazy theories on all this- it's SO obvious Kubo, if it IS translated correctly at the end for "you", did this just to make us go crazy in our

although it's so obviously aimed towards Orihime >.>;
karasunomai on August 3rd, 2009 02:42 am (UTC)

If this is true, then... just... awesomeness.

Now I really want Ulquiorra back. ;_;
karasunomai on August 3rd, 2009 02:47 am (UTC)
Oh, and I wonder what the little illustration that goes above it will be? I'm so excited for this! Darn Viz and it's slow volume translation process for Bleach!

Wait gaiz, this is clearly about Ulq's lust for erm, Ichithing's horns. I'm calling it right now. Mark my words.

Sandy says:
the ichioris are going to twist that
that he is lusting for what ichigo has
and that's "orihime's love"
Navi says:
Sandy says:

I can totally see what they're going to do.

But obviously, the poem is UlquiHimeriffic
dark_waterlily: despairdark_waterlily on August 3rd, 2009 03:08 am (UTC)
Yup that's what I am fearing... wait that's what's going to happen. Remember the moment when Ulqui was realizing where did the heart lie? well, those panels showing Ichigo and Orihime where because Ichiori's love showed him where with their great love.
