Bleach 388 Spoilers and Spine!  
Your fix is here! The 388 Chapter Thread is Open At BA

Ohana our spoiler provider from Japan says it's a crappy chapter but we've got Ichigo going "Hollow" already--does that mean ICHITHING? That's nothing short of spectacular! I wonder what Aizen does to provoke him to do that! And then everyone else gangpiles on Aizen to help?
That can't end well, but that's got to look amazing! YOU NEVER SEE A MELEE FIGHT IN BLEACH!

Besides all that, the Orihime on the spine looks great! Pic thanks to Zangetsu of BA and hieiji of 2ch

Why would it be IchiThing when Koma still tells Ichigo not to fall for Aizen's provocation? I believe he just went vaizard.

lmao Orihime gets her number (7) for the spine XD

Ah, you're right. It still understands, so it's just the mask. Orihime got number seven.
She only got half a boob for one spine too! So we can't even tell who's coming next! I can't tell what that black thing is behind her either!

Orihime's pose looks like she's in some kind of musical.

Everyone piling on on Aizen is pretty much the sgin that this will fail. I also really wonder with what Aizen provoked Ichigo. Perhaps with his hollowness? We know that Ichigo doesn't want to accept it.

Arrgh, I meant "sign"!

Unohana went to fix the hurt people I hope--RIGHT AWAY.

How about the old man? He's just standing there knowing better than to fight Aizen....

Orihime looks so funny and pretty! Too bad that we have no clue about who is standing next to her but I can only imagine Ishida with his book in hand, placing his glasses correctly and looking at her out of the corner of his eye :D

I also think that the black thing could be a Menos Grande's cape or something like that. It would fix well with the Karakura's context.

Orihime looks nice on the spine...the good old days...

Okies....why is everyone ganging up on Aizen? It just makes him look cooler...and once he takes them all out, he will be even more than cool....AWESOME!!!!

Ichigo turns hollow/vaizard/whatever at provocation...gosh, I have said it before, this Ichigo is not ready to face Aizen and WHY OH WHY DID HE INTERUPPT SHINJI vs AIZEN????? This was not his fight

And where on earth is Gin????

I feel like am not really looking forward to the chappie
Sharonstopwatch_plz on January 13th, 2010 11:47 am (UTC)
I am secretly hoping the Gin will turn round to Aizen and go "Actually, I'm bored of this!" and just vanish, leaving Aizen on his own *lol*

Ichigo is going to be squished. Again. Oh, Ichigo!

(also - finally, NEW CHAPTER YAY!)

For your viewing pleasure for those who dont want to download the chapter:


As for the chapter itself:

Ichigo is under Aizen's shikai. Too many panels of Ichigo going O_O at Aizen for him not to be anymore. Although it was nice to see some of the survivors gather up and show some solidarity against Aizen for once.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on January 13th, 2010 03:08 pm (UTC)

I'm ogling it now, thanks. <3 Lovely art but better yet SO much Aizen talking and taunting. And that panel of him molesting Ichigo there! He gets a little close and personal! The last page is awesome! Is everybody trying to get pwned just so Ichigo has some motivation to fight?

Just saw the raw thanks to Arcadiasilver....it does NOT look good for Ichigo.


OMFG DID YOU SEE HIS MASK?!! His Vizard mask now has the IchiThing pattern, not good! I mean, I know it had the two lines earlier when he fought Yammy but the way they're formed now is unmistakable.

Also have to agree, there's way too much O_O on the part of Ichigo for him not to have seen Kyoka Suigetsu. Ugh, Unohana! If he was the trump card can you NOT drop him in the middle of the battle where shikais and bankais are flying?

In that one panel where he's face to face with Aizen, with little bits of his mask floating away he kinda looks like Grimmjow, y'know, the last crazy battle guy who was dropped just by Aizen's spiritual pressure? Ichigo looks like he's freaking out, and I bet there's something in the text about him having seen the shikai but we'll see.

As for the last panel, with everyone getting behind him to fight Aizen? I like it, its nice that Ichigo's not fighting alone or or anything, and I think it'll make Ichigo's beat down a little less catastrophic...

OR its going to be even worse because EVERY ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE has seen the shikai. As I've said before, I'm not entirely convinced that ANYONE has fought Aizen yet, or that he's even there! MAYBE Shinji has, maybe, and I actually think it would be kind of cheap on Kubo's part to make everything that's happened in FKT be an illusion, but I'll believe the good guys have an upper hand only when the illusion shatters and they still have it.

I predict a large boost in the popularity of Aizen/Ichigo yaoi.

Otherwise, meh. I'm much more interested in what's going on back in HM. *taps foot*

I was saying earlier: "ZOMG a new pair is born!"

The last pages are my favourite with everyone standing against Aizen. About time. At the end of Soul Society arc there were revelations when Ichigo met Aizen, I hope this will be the same even if this story arc ends in summer.
nehalenia: chad interp dancenehalenia on January 13th, 2010 04:14 pm (UTC)
OK, really fast comment before I run out the door. I noticed the title is a callback to 238 - "Eagle Without Wings", which was when Soul Society officially 'abandoned' Ichigo, or at least washed their hands of trying to get Orihime back. It was also when Ichigo ditched his Vizard training. Now the last panel shows the ones who abandoned him (SS) and the ones he abandoned (Vizards) standing with him against Aizen. I'm wondering, though, if the title, which implies something (Ichigo) handicapped/weakened, doesn't have a deeper meaning?
Grenat: ichiruki2escarboucle on January 13th, 2010 04:50 pm (UTC)
I always thought that eagle without wings represented Ichigo when he thought that he was alone, abandoned by everyone and then his friends around him proved him wrong. That he regained his wings because his friends proved that he wasn't abandoned.

238 was Eagle without wings and 239 Winged eagles [notice the plural] so I'm kind of expecting a redo of ch239's title too. This is about friendship and standing up for each other, me think, when everything is dark and there's no more hope.

I'm pretty sure Aizen is Hannibal Lecturing Ichigo :3 and I can't wait to know what it says XD
Also the chest atouchement felt like a rape, it was gorgeously done. Genius on Kubo's part.
peca_06peca_06 on January 13th, 2010 06:31 pm (UTC)
Orihime looks beautiful and happy, like the good'ol days ^_^ ... I also hope Ishida comes next ;)
I don't know why Ohana thinks the chapter is "crap", it looks like there might be some good revelations coming from Aizen's taunting attitude.
Ichigo is way over his head (duh! XD) and Aizen is playing with him like a cat with an injured mouse, before he finishes him off T_T. Aizen is way too cunning and experienced for Ichi.
Aizen is probably telling Ichigo all that he knows about him, his battles in HM and his transformation + weaknesses. I love that panel when Aizen touches Ichigo in chest (such a gorgeous, well drawn, emotional, dynamic and scary panel <33333) , most likely telling him about the tremendous HOLE he had right about there a little while ago and by Ichigo's reaction and the flashback of Orihime (a panel I don't recall seeing of her *headscratch*... I am not sure if it is Aizen's or Ichigo's flashback...), there might be more insights or realizations and what happened at the dome or interactions after Ulqui was turned to ash, perhaps...??? Or maybe Aizen asking Ichigo "Err... wasn't your mission in HM to rescue Orihime...? you are empty handed..." lol XD
I can't wait to see and read more and that last panel of everyone backing Ichigo up is wonderful. Moar, moar, moar XD

"Or maybe Aizen asking Ichigo "Err... wasn't your mission in HM to rescue Orihime...? you are empty handed..." lol XD"

My thoughts exactly! lol Ichigo is like "OMFG! I knew that I forgot something!" XD

I smell evil Aizen will pop out soon. I don't know but these fights are still too easy and quick now. =\ Something's up with the story and it seems like Kubo's rushing it because he's excited about something. But I want to know one thing!

Where's Gin?
