Scan for #379 is up already!  
http://www.mangafox.com/manga/bleach/v42/c379/2.html (thanks gully_moe!)


Check out the color spread! Rukia is adorable, I think Hitsu is supposed to be some kind of werewolf-boy or something, and.... WTF is Inoue wearing???? IS that Inoue in the tree?

Ishida and Ichigo look great, except for one thing: WRY is Ichigo the only one half-nekky??? Darn you, KT, make Uryuu take some of his clothes off for once!

As for the chapter.... discuss away.



ETA: I just noticed Rukia seems to be riding her pitchfork. Hmmm, y'think maybe Kubo's been hearing people say that 'Rukia isn't sexy'? Because evidence opposing that seems to be mounting. ;)

You might want to link to the chapter. It was already translated.

Yes the color spread is hot! MY WORD.

Also as for the chapter. I'm glad to see a bit of a flashback on Orihime. She's sad that Ulquiorra had to go? =3

_debbiechan_: Kubo is my boyfriend 2_debbiechan_ on October 22nd, 2009 05:25 pm (UTC)

Oh hey thanks Neha for keeping up with bleachness while I'm still on a migraine day (yeah, STILL--the meds aren't helping). I checked in with Annie this morning and saw the spread and left a rambly review at BA. Scan will be up soon so the discussion may as well start there.

Ichigo makes one hot Frankenstein's monster, and Rukia is RIDING THAT TRIDENT. Woo baby.

I think Orihime is supposed to be dressed as a pumpkin, not a ghost, but it sure is cute. I like Ishida's slicked back hair.

The very fact that Kubo's gotten requests to draw Rukia as an angel with wings and he drew her as a devil makes me LOL. <3 I love the man.
hinodehhinodeh on October 22nd, 2009 05:28 pm (UTC)
I've always seen little lights like they surround Orihime in the spread drawn when Japanese ghosts appear, so I'm sure that she is, in fact, supposed to be a ghost.

Oh yeah, I went on and on about how apropos Ichigo being Frankenstein's monster was at the first hint of the spoiler. The monster like Allon. I was wondering if this was going to foretell DADDY/CREATOR issues (I love the original novel) or what but in any event, yeah, beautiful costume choice.

I saw the script already but the chapter is delicious for its angsty Ichigo. Poor thing. And of course once Ken-chan and Bya come into the picture all my heart can do is cheer.

Ow, my migraine hurts but just seeing Bya (and Ken chan still isn't wearing a shirt, LOL) does me good.

Oh gosh...am reading it right now...

For the colour spread...
Renji...I developed an absurd crush on u after watching one of the eppies and i must say....yummy!
Ishida....bite me!!! mwahahaha
Matsumoto...seriously..she cld have any guy spellbound by them just looking at her
Orihime....awww...but why so alone up in the tree?
Ichigo...now that is one great look. Bring on the monster
Rukia...babe, ur made of win. Take that,u Rukia haters who said she was not attractive
Hitsugaya...Mezzo is loudly complaining that a certain part of his anatomy was left out in a clearly tight-fitting outfit. I am only hiding my face to cover my laughter

Mezzo, get in here..I know u wanna say sth abt Hitsu....

manonlechat: Ulquiorra_Cifermanonlechat on October 22nd, 2009 05:52 pm (UTC)
Matsumoto... Oh, Matsumoto. You sexy, sexy witch. That may be my favorite official pic now.

Just the little snippet of Orihime standing sad at Ulquiorra's death made this chapter. I'm glad the spoilers hadn't described that, because clicking on that page was a little surprise wash of sadness and depth.

Ichigo is really going to be in a funk, isn't he?

Shirtless Kenpachi! Yes, please and thank you! You are welcome anytime! ;D

The spread is fun, as usual. I'm not really into discussing spreads because they usually mean nothing, though.

However, I DID like Orihime thinking of Ulquiorra. Long awaited Ori--->Ulqui. Take that, anti-ers!
Grenatescarboucle on October 22nd, 2009 06:26 pm (UTC)
I found it especially ironic and amusing that Kubo made Ichigo's FIRST flashback of Inoue for this WHOLE arc... about Inoue --> Ulq LOL!

ISHIDA. WHAT ARE YOU DOING CHANNELING AIZEN? MAYBE HE WAS YOUR LONG-LOST MOTHER.


As for Ichigo: "Has something happened to my Hollow transformation because of that thing [above panel: the Lust arc]?"
http://www.onemanga.com/Bleach/379/08/

[he can't pull out his mask]

"Shit! Does it have something to do with that feeling from before?"
http://www.onemanga.com/Bleach/379/19/

Yes, Ichigo. It does have something to do with that feeling, that feeling being back in the Lust arc when your heart was torn out of your chest and you turned into a monster that attacked your friends.

I swear, Kubo could not be more obvious about what is killing Ichigo's ability to fight.

Okay, this chapter filled me with glee. Much glee.


My only complaint is how tiny and orangey-squishy Orihime looks on the cover, especially in comparison to well - everyone?

Renji, baby, you look good in anything. <3


Oh God - that little flashback about Orihime being in pain? So much love for it. It felt - needed.

And I never expected the last page to make me quite so ecstatic but :D :D :D :D ASDFGHJKL! YES YES YES!

HAHAHAHA, chapter was good, but WTH is up with Hitsu's costume? Everyone looks so good, while he just kills it. He just looks ridiculous, haha. But Rukia, Ichigo, and Ishida make up for that. I love how the fanboys at the chapter thread are drooling over Rukia. She can't do sexy eh? Kubo seems to be proving that wrong, :p

Ichigo's expressions in this chapter broke my heart. You couldn't see his face half the time, but it still hit me. The occurrences atop the dome really haunted him. Ichigo rescue arc is a comin' The nakama will help him get through this, I hope.

_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on October 22nd, 2009 06:10 pm (UTC)

I've been trying not to say anything about Hitsugaya. He's looked so damn ridiculous the last couple times he's appeared in color, poor thing.

I thought Orihime was Little Red Riding Hood. Which prolly wouldn't make much sense.

A nun, maybe?

and yeah, the Ichi-stein is obviously symbolic of the monster he's become. In his own mind, anyway.

When I first read he was going to be drawn as Frankenstein, it seemed perfect.

But - that - um - well Orihime sees herself as a little glob? Oh. Oh. Oh.
All of them. This could make sense. It does make sense.

Clearly I need to spend more time thinking about Bleach rather than just getting ridiculously hyper over it ^^;

I just love Renji looking so dejected because not only is his hair flattened to his head with bandages, but it also seems they're over his mouth as well - no cool hair and not able to talk his way into trouble. Poor Renji! XD

Basic reactions:

-Rukia HAS had descriptions of the mask. I DECLARE BYAKUYA'S DRAWING OF THE MASK TO BE CANON! XD
-I do like that she's not freaking out about the MASK, just that it's changing. She's kind of "w/e" to the mask itself.
-WHY INDEED is Orihime sadder than Yammy? Yeesh, Ichigo. Nice of him to finally notice the nuances of her mood, though.
-LOL @ trying to eat Ichigo. I was JUST thinking he was big enough to chew on people, too.
-Byakuya coming to save Ichigo's ass is the best thing ever. Schadenfreude! Also, Byakuya looks hot all in black. /shallow

I'm loving the color spread, but not nearly as much as I'm loving this chapter. I'm a bit of a sucker for seeing the hero become the damsel, maybe I"m just mean to my favs. But when I first started reading Bleach I didn't bond with any of the characters or find them attractive. I mean, Rukia was cool and whatnot, but the story was mildly entertaining even if I didn't bond with any one.

That all began to change with the Pendulum arc, where I really fell in love with a group of characters, especially Shinji and Hiyori.

And now it feels like the floodgate has opened with the most recent chapters. I really felt for Ichigo in this chapter, he's really out of whack and he's not the excitable shounen hero anymore. I want him to get better but I'm going to love the conflicted stage he's in while it lasts.

And is it me or are all the Bleach characters becoming more "eye-candy" as the manga progresses? Ichigo has gotten HOT!

Are you me? Because it was Shinji and Hiyori that really got me, too (Gin and Rangiku pulled a cord with me also, but they really needed more screentime). It is pretty much their fault that I'm attached to so many of the other characters now, too.
