New Bleach novel edition with NEW Kubo illustrations  
ETA: New scans from Athena at the IchiRuki FC at BA The boys are really cute too!

Annie has some yummy gleanings for you this morning from 2ch and sketchbaka did the translations.

From the IR FC at BA and Annie:

Some of you already know about Bleach Novel: Letter from the Other Side is releasing a new edition. A quick info for those who didn't know what it is, it's the first Bleach novel that came out before Honey Dish. It based on the first 14 (or 10?) chapters of Bleach manga and yes, it's Kubo approved but he didn't write it. This new edition has extra chapter or something. Anyway, Kubo sensei drew some cute pics so I have to share them.with you (credit from 2ch)

Translations by sketchbaka :



The main character in short story is Rukia.
She just woke up and feeling sleepy.
She was happy because there is cucumber in her ham sandwich that her face softened. Ichigo noticed and pointed that out, which made Rukia blushed.
She went to the electric shop in one shopping mall district to watch a rebroadcast of some fishing anime.
She didn't know that there will be a test so she asked Ichigo to teach her but she got rejected.
She didn't know to do afterwards so she decided to go outside.
She met Inoue, Tatsuki, Mizuiro, Keigo, she also got some kind of tonic nourishment from Urahara, a lot of things happened but after all she didn't get to study so she went home.
After that Ichigo lend her Chad's notes (it's easy to study) and everything went well.



Ichigo was the one who woke Rukia up.
Kon blamed him when he coldly rejected Rukia then he started to regret it. "Aah, damn it!" he called Chad after that. He went to Chad's house to take the notes. Chad asked him, "Are you going to use it?" then Ichigo replied, "Y-Yes, of course I am!!"
Seeing his behaviour, Chad somehow noticed, "He's concerned about the transfer student, isn't he...?"
Ichigo was shy and awkward when he passed the notes to Rukia.
Last, Rukia thanked him, "Ichigo... thank you."

ETA: one last bit of translation from Sketchy--

The last, when Rukia said, "Ichigo... thank you," Ichigo didn't reply anything, but his mouth was opened a bit.

Sketchbaka said Ichigo was a Tsundere, and it's really true. LOL.

Awwwww, if Ichigo is the one who woke her up, I guess he's the one who got her a drink. This is back in the Karakura days, so she can't freely roam his house. Just... aww. Traditional courtship, he's bribing her with a home, food, and good grades

"she also got some kind of tonic nourishment from Urahara"

Knowing Urahara, this was probably not really helpful to Rukia's goals. >.>

*edit* Oh yeah, and is it just me, or are the girls doing Hare Hare Yukai?

Very cute of the girls. I love Rukia's and Tatsuki's faces.

Tee hee. When I first saw the artwork, I didn't think Hare Hare Yukai... I thought: Broadway chorus line! XD Which is probably even more disturbing, until you realize that Bleach Rock Musical exists....

ahh~ happy days in bleach. i missed those 3_3
(and yeah by now, rukia should know better than to drink urahara's whatever tonic. i bet it's actually not for academic improvement)
