OMG! 378 is already out!  
http://manga.bleachexile.com/bleach-chapter-391-page-1.html



Significantly, this scan has Ichigo telling Rukia that Orihime is 'tending Ishida's wounds' not just fixing his hand.

Also, for those of you who were worried, Yammy apparently has no gonads. I'm sure we're all relieved.

ETA: Oh, and Ichigo does have a bandage on his left arm! WTF? Why did he need it and when did that happen? (Also, did anyone else notice that his hakama have had to be bandaged on?)

Hmm, makes me wonder if his tattered threads might be, oh, I dunno, symbolic of something. :)

Quick link back to more 378 discussion that was going out when we got the summary from Annie:

http://community.livejournal.com/bleachness/357994.html

UHHHHHHH. My thoughts are close to DEAD here, but here's a few things!

- Rukia is going down FIGHTING. WAY TO GO, MY BEAUTIFUL GIRL. I LOVE YOU.
- Smells like a parallel being set-up here to me.
- Yammy, EWWWWW TMI
- Ichigo, you lieeeeed.
- Tiny Rukia on page 17 is TINY
- Ichigo's cover page is hot.
- Ichigo on page 18 looks like that dude who fought Kira in FKT, or is that just me?

--You type faster than I do!

--You can almost see up Yammy's butt, I know!

Thanks Neha! That was quick. Lightning fast. Btw, I was just trying to get Kylara to update the previous post since we'd all started discussing the chapter in detail once Annie's summary came out but hell, looks like we've got a lot more to talk about now.

I just finished reading the scan from a file and it's up on bleachexile! THE COVER IS ICHIGO--WHAT IS HE UNDERWATER OR blowing bubbles? What lies beyond this downcast gaze?????? Knock us over the head with the ominous stuff, Kubo-sensei. This is not going to go down well.

Last time I had this sinking feeling was when Ishida said he regretted taking Orihime up to the dome.

AHHHHHHHHH!

ICHIGO LOOK SCARY IN LAST PANEL!

But I keep telling myself--THIS IS YAMMY. It's got to be slapstick--it's GOT to be fun. I'm still holding out that Ichigo is going to eff this all up royally and Kenpachi is going to come in chasing after IchiThing and Unohana will have to take Yammy down.

Rukia's role in bringing Ichigo to his senses seems foretold too. Well, it's not like Kubo hasn't been setting this one up for YEARS. It's almost TOO obvious that if Rukia couldn't save Kaien from his beast form, she's going to have to save Ichigo but...

CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT CHAPTERS! (and a Shounen Jump cover and Color Page next week!)
jenny_jadejenny_jade on October 15th, 2009 10:29 pm (UTC)
The cover, Ichigo is obviously drowning or sinking underwater <--- The subtle meaning is here... together with the sidetext.

That reminds me the tag line on the cover in chapter 353 where Ichigo woke up and went on self-denial, "do you want to drown in us?" I see what you did thar, Kubo!

First, I am in love with that cover shot....he looks kinda sad and sexy at the same time. **sigh**

I don't understand why he doesn't just take off that right sleeve. Isn't it just getting in the way at this point?

Second to last page, bottom panels...Obviously, Yammy is getting to see what we are not. I think he's seeing the mask. We get to see Ichigo's yummy neck

Scary mask is changed again.

It's a great chapter.
kohi_no_torakohi_no_tora on October 15th, 2009 09:31 pm (UTC)
You know, I couldn't see the horn on his mask that everyone was talking about in earlier discussions. It's just his regular mask with different markings. This is going to get brutal for a bit though. Ichigo looks like he wants to use Yammy as a punching bag to take his frustration out on.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on October 15th, 2009 09:57 pm (UTC)

Yes that was clarified for us in the Thai summary Annie gave us earlier today. Funny, the Japanese spoiler and the Japanese summary both had Ichigo all horny. XD

It's just the mask... for now!

Ichigo does look thinner, and seems really different. I agree with what someone said above, it seems Ichigo is fighting Yammy just to relieve his anger about something and he indeed seems merciless.
kchanlp: byakuyakchanlp on October 15th, 2009 09:40 pm (UTC)
Also, for those of you who were worried, Yammy apparently has no gonads. I'm sure we're all relieved. << Thank God. And Kubo Tite, who apparently has enough heart to spare us the trauma.

About the chapter, well, it was exactly like the spoilers (congrats to you guys! o/). I'm still a little shocked about Yammi's ressurecíon. Espada 0... It was... unexpected... and kinda shitty, c'mon, Starrk was so much more cool than Yammi and died, it was horrible ;____;. And Ichigo's mask changed, but I don't see horns, though his right eye is completely taken by his hollow side. It doesn't have a iris inside. =O

And where are the captains? They completely vanished or something... >_> *is complaining just 'cause she wants to see Byakuya. And no, the anime doesn't count. u__u*

ISN'T SHE BEAUTIFUL, LENNAN?

"You're beautiful, even when you're falling."

yes I did just steal from Byakuya I DON'T CARE she looks LOVELY and she was trying so goddamn hard and she has her priorities in order. Damsel in distress, my ASS.

Ichigo... so sad. Those eyes are really sad. I just admire his looks
Kylara: pretty Uryuukarenai on October 15th, 2009 09:51 pm (UTC)
Quickie comparisons between Rukia's pose this chapter and Orihime's pose during much of the Lust Arc. Click on the thumbnail, it's much larger.



Smells like a parallel and looks like a parallel, but the whole point of a parallel is that it is not the same.

TO PROTECT VS TO FACEPLANT, MMH? I SEE WHUT YOU DID THERE KUBO.

XD


On another level, this chapter is made of pure glee. It's bad for Ichigo, but it's good for his character and for Rukia's character and for their development. YUMMY CHAPTER IS YUMMY.

did anyone else notice that his hakama have had to be bandaged on?

Yes. And then I felt wrong XD

But yeah, it was all a bit badass, and Ichigo was a bit scary tbh (in a good way. Mostly. I hope *is a bit worried*)

But yeah, go Rukia *waves pompoms*
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on October 15th, 2009 10:01 pm (UTC)

Yeah, Ichigo looked to me like he was wearing some bandages just for the fashion statement but I guess he need to keep his clothes from falling off.

『ミカオル』 ☆: ichi_hollowmikaoru on October 15th, 2009 10:20 pm (UTC)
I have mixed feelings about this chapter.

First, the artwork is STUNNING. You gotta love how Kubo drew Rukia and Ichigo here <33, some panels are truly epic.

Second, I've been saying this all day but I'm srsly worried about Ichigo's state and Rukia only confirmed that. It's awesome how well she deciphered his look, ONE SINGLE LOOK and she already knew something IS very WRONG inside Ichigo.

Also, the look, at first I said it was so cold, but now I'm headed to read that look as 'I'm broken on the inside, I need you' [/biasness]

I pretty think Rukia WILL take part on the battle. She can't stay there seeing Ichigo in such despair.
andrew_jpandrew_jp on October 15th, 2009 10:20 pm (UTC)
I like this very straightforward and no-nonsense fighting style Ichigo's using here. He didn't call out any attack names, he interrupted Yammy's cero, he seems to have gone straight for the kill once the mask came on...I hope Ichigo holds on to elements of that once Ulquiorra comes back to life and he stops being a mopey, guilt-ridden little girl on the inside.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on October 15th, 2009 10:25 pm (UTC)

Tell me something about the fanboi mind, Andrew--I'm hearing ALL THE GUYS AT BA say this. ICHIGO MEANS BUSINESS. WAY TO GO , ICHIGO. TAKE YAMMY DOWN WITH NO NONSENSE. Meanwhile me and my girlfriends are all like Rukia-- something is WRONG with Ichigo... I feeeeeeel bad for him, oh no, something's up, the shit is going to hit the fan

Does Ichigo's taking care of business look really come off as impressive?
I think that last panel is REALLY SCARY.

SimHumansimhuman on October 15th, 2009 10:40 pm (UTC)
I am floored by how conveniently Kubo dispensed with Renji and Chad, leaving Rukia alone to deal with the brokenness she instantly recognizes in Ichigo. This fight does look like it's going to be another disaster -- there would be no point to having Yammi show up at all if Ichigo were going to flatten him immediately.
yulieana on October 15th, 2009 10:42 pm (UTC)
What happened to his horn? I was expecting a horn! I didn't see the horn!! Where is the horn?!?!?!?!? HORN!!!!
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on October 15th, 2009 10:46 pm (UTC)

See previous post in bleachness Early spoilers were wrong. Annie clarified everything when she translated Drake's summary--it seemed that it described the mask right.
