v43: Kingdom of Hollows scans  
Scans are out for volume 43. Image heavy, but I finally learned to thumbnail, so click to expand.



lennan, thanks for the heads up.

This covers chapters 368-377, the Barragan and Starrk & Lillinette fights. Credit to Raw-Paradise, linked via the Bleach Asylum v43 thread.

Volume cover: Barragan



Volume poem



Translation by the lovely lennan

Decay is our friend.
Night is our manservant.
While the crows pick at this body
We wait for you by the elm wood castle.


All-Stars



Aaand the inbetweens.



From Lennan's comment, Oomaeda is saying: "It hurts...hurts and scary"



Urahara is sneezing. This is after Hachi and Soi Fon's questionable bargain.
















My response is essentially D:

The wolfs =/ That's really depressing...
Shipeachesdjna on February 4th, 2010 09:33 pm (UTC)
D: is right. Starrk's death made me teary and those drawings make me dangerously close. Oh Kubo, why must you make me love your characters so?




What is in the yellow box on the cover? I thought they were panties on first glance D:

What is in the yellow box on the cover? I thought they were panties on first glance D:

It's a face mask. Kubo was talking about the bad cold he had last winter that he didn't want to infect his coworkers with.

OMG...D:

Starrk...Lillynette...

DDDDDDDD:

Also, am intrigued by the Urahara.

But OUCH for the wolves.

Urahara is shuddering because Soi made that pact with Hacchi XD

I want to give those wolves a hug.

Sigh. I guess Starrk did disintegrate after all. :(

It's sad but beautiful. Kubo is so great,damn. I wanna be able to draw like that ^^

The puppies! D: Oh gosh, that hurts all over again. I wonder what Urahara's up to in that doodle tho? First we've seen of him in ages. Oh, and I checked the link and saw Bleach is getting a color page next week!

Still can't find a scan of this week's spine tho. T___T If Ohana took a pic of it, BA hasn't put it up yet.
_debbiechan_: Urahara Kisuke_debbiechan_ on February 4th, 2010 10:01 pm (UTC)

The Urahara pic comes right after the Soi Fong and Hacchi discussion about shutting up Urahara in a box. Urahara is sneezing or shuddering, I think. XD

Poem
腐败は我が友

夜は我が仆

鸦にこの身を啄ませながら

楡の馆でお前を待つ


From the BA thread.

One of the translations (courtesy Ishida) is

To decay is our companion
As night is our servant
As the crow pecks at this body
I await you at the castle of elm trees


Kubo's such a poet. I think I anticipate the poems more than the covers.

Re: Poem
WOW!

So Lilynett is dead, too, huh? :(

Thanks for the scans, karenai.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on February 4th, 2010 09:55 pm (UTC)

Thanks for posting this Ky. Sorry I lost you on IM. I feel asleep. <.<

Urahara sneezing when Soi Fong wanted to put him in a box was funny but then...

oh, Kubo-sensei, I don't think I've ever been so sad over any one of your characters as much as Starrk Coyote Lilynette Gingerback. Goodnight, goodnight Lonesome Cowboy. Ulquiorra's death was more beautiful and meaningful but this one was just DAMN SAD. Fuck, you made the nestled doggies explode. Damn.
enisy: Bleach:: Orihime (Only Love)enisy on February 4th, 2010 10:04 pm (UTC)
Oh, so that's what the Urahara sketch was for. Epic lulz.

My last remaining hopes for Starrk died with the puppies. Kubo's such a sadist. :(

:'( :'( The wolves. Oh, now that's just heartbreaking.

Kubo is damn good at making you love his characters.

Although I wonder what Urahara is doing there, lol.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on February 4th, 2010 10:00 pm (UTC)

Oh lennan translated the poem as well:

Decay is our friend.
Night is our manservant.
While the crows pick at this body
We wait for you by the elm wood castle.

D: D: D:

Gah. *cries*

This, and those last five doodles just break my heart. ;___;

I mean, first Starrk & Lilynette. (Oh Shishou, they AT LEAST deserve to have a cover of their own, DON'T THEY??) And then Koma-chan, too!

SERIOUSLY. SOMEBODY SAVE THE PUPPIES!!!!!!!!!!

At least the lil' puppycar is still safe back in HM... well, for NOW, anyway. :\

Wow. So depressing. >__>

Also, on the All-Stars page.. why LOVE and not ROSE, I wonder? Hm.

Oh shit, the wolves are making me cry!

Yeah, those images are hard on dog fanciers or anyone who's watched dog pack behavior--I'm remembering my dad's dog Ashby who every day in the sun lay in the same spot in the backyard where her lifelong buddy Morgan died. She kept that up for years until she was a geriatric doggie and my dad sold the house.

T__T She died last year. I miss her so much. Waaaah.

Well, the bloodspray is the puppies, which are fragments of Starrk/Lilynette's soul. Until proven otherwise, I don't think Kubo put much thought into the metaphysics of the thing, to be honest. Each Espada seems to die in a different manner, with Aaroniero melting, Zommari exploding, Nnoitra leaving a corpse behind, etc.
