If You Had One Question  

If you had only one question to ask Kubo-sensei, what would it be? Give me your question in a comment without any additional commentary.
You only have one question. That's one sentence, no use of multiple conjunctions ands ifs and buts and subclauses to complicate your question. I don't need to know why you want to ask your question. All I want is the question. Let the question speak for itself.

This would be my question:  What significant changes did you mean for Orihime's character to undergo during the Arrancar arc?

"How did you intend for Ichigo's transformation above the dome to be viewed by the readers: as a curse or a blessing?"

I think he's already answered that question with the manga. You should pay attention to things like, for example, what exactly it means to become a hollow and lose your heart. Isn't it telling that the only way Kubo says a character can be redeemed after killing someone is if they actually killed them while hollow? (this was said when Rukia explained hell in the Karakura arc)

Not to mention trying to kill a friend. I think Kubo answered this question very clearly with hollow!Ichigo's actions. He wasn't trying to stop Ulquiorra nor was he going at him to purify him from being a hollow. He wasn't fighting for a reason. He didn't need a reason. He was fighting to kill the person in front of him. That's all.

He screamed just like Allon did, and he was just as sane as that dumb beast. He was nothing more than a monster.

Ichigo himself viewed it as a curse and was scared as hell of it. He called it a THING later on, in a flashback. Orihime said it was her fault he turned into that thing. You don't beat yourself up over something if you don't view it as a bad thing.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that it stabbed Ishida, who was Ichigo's friend. Gee, how could I have left out one of the things that people think of first when they wonder whether hollow!Ichigo is a bad thing.

I'm pretty sure it is to be viewed as a curse. If he wanted it to be portrayed as Orihime's knight in shining armor, he would have at least portrayed it as something that had her safety as its #1 priority. It didn't have priorities. All it knew was that it wanted to survive, kill, and grow stronger.

There was, of course, the incoherent chanting it did about wanting to save Orihime. But if you ask me, its actions are quite different from its words. I don't think it really understood that concept at all, it was just repeating Ichigo's last thoughts as he lost consciousness. It's not like Ichigo meant to turn into that thing, he meant to protect her. If he did mean to turn into that thing, then he would not have offered to cut off his own arm and leg afterward.

Will we see any history/timeline for the development of the "community" in Las Noches beyond what we can piece together from Nnoitra's, Barragon's, and Starrk's dying flashbacks?

Will we have a flashback about Rukia's past and the hougyoku?
silverkun2silverkun2 on January 24th, 2010 07:46 am (UTC)
This is something that's too crucial for him to leave out... It's at the absolute center of the plot, so you can pretty much say that he has to cover this eventually.

Which of the supposedly dead or defeated Arrancar will we see alive again?

Supposedly because the crack in her skull mask thing on her head caused her reiatsu to leak out. I forget exactly where this was said, but I know it was said somewhere in the manga.
