Kubo answers fan questions on Jump!Bang  

The BA thread is here with screenshots and Japanese text and some fan translations. Kubo-sensei didn't appear himself on the Japanese television show but he did answer three fan questions which included the information, briefly, that it takes him "some time" (eta: actually, no time!) to come up with a character for a story--the ideas pop in his head and then he does drawings, that it is not in Shunsui's character to defeat Aizen right away, and that Kubo may write a side story explaining why Matsumoto became a Shinigami.

We're awaiting full translations of the rest of the stuff there.

ETA: and we have a thorough translation from nacchan under the cut.

translation by
[info]nacchan :

first, thank you for sharing <3

before you read, this info come from poppy_moon’s blog who is a huge Rukia fan .. hence the diary style and her usual "Rukia" comment.



Akina garbed in shihakusou made an entrance. Her getsuga-tenshou stance was quite OK


the 4th movie will be screened next winter. It will explain/revolve around BLEACH current development


people assembled in the conference room (jump-spot?). In there all of those good kids are playing Yamanote-line game. When one little kid says "Rukia" my heart was thumping ver fast ^^ (from excitement)

AN : Yamanote is japanese drinking game. This game started with participants required to go around in a circle naming stations on the Yamanote line. Even if a different category is picked, it is still called the Yamanote-sen Game. Each participant must answer in rhythm with clapping, and must drink if they are unable to give an answer or give an answer not in the category. In this case the stations name are substituted with BLEACH character name.

・次に良い子の皆でブリーチ・キャラカルタをしつつ、ブリーチ愛をアピール。皆すごいw 鬼道の解説の背景が蒼火墜を撃つルキアさんでそれだけで心臓がバクバク言った私^^ 朽木兄妹の暖簾いいですよね。

after that the kids then playing BLEACH character cards, that really appealed their love to BLEACH. Everyone is amazing (laugh). The backdrop showing Rukia firing soukatsui, that's enough to make my heart rate going so fast ^^. The Kuchiki siblings reputations are really amazing.

kubo sensei answering questions from bleach readers:

A.時間はかかりません。普通に生活していればキャラクターは次々と頭の中に勝手にでてくるもの。それをい つのタイミングで紙の上に落すかというだけのことです

Q. How long does it takes for you to create a character?
A. It doesn't take time. When I do my daily activities characters idea one by one suddenly spring into my head. Then it's all about the timing when will I put them on top of the paper.

A.春水の魅力は藍染を倒すことではなく、読者の皆に常に「卍解したら藍染より強いかも」と思わせてくれる ところです

Q. Why Kyouraku didn't go Bankai? If he get serious he might defeat Aizen!
A. Shunsui's appeal is not to defeat Aizen. But I let the readers think that 「If he goes Bankai he might be stronger than Aizen」


Q. Why Rangiku become a shinigami?
I'll probably write about that eventually.

after that it's the combination of spoiler pictures and a comedic session, and then they took a commentary from a 12 years old boy who spent 2 years drawing BLEACH everyday. The boy is so cute and his younger brother is also very cute when he said 'Onii-chan daisuki!' ^^

AN : the spoiler pictures is of Isshin using getsuga.. nothing new

Later the one who drew the best wins a clear file (with Zanpakutou poll result art) with Kubo-sensei's sign on it.

and a moody Aizen art in a shikishi (autograph cardboard)

the backdrop image are the Halloween spread and the phone spread which had Rukia in both of it, seeing that makes my heart goes fast ^^

Fuck, I am so insanely curious about the Rangiku one. By that point, Gin would already have been in the academy, or something. Hnnngh.

By that point, Gin would already have been in the academy, or something. Hnnngh.

I can't imagine a Rangiku backstory that doesn't include references to Gin. And it would probably answer the questions of how long Gin and Rangiku lived together, when they separated, etc. (perennial topics of discussion in GinRan circles. ^_^)

ASDFGHJK!! Yes I'm very curious about the Rangiku's backstory as well!!

LMAO at the Japanese dude with a Hitler mustache he never gets old...

So for this week show Kubo decided to draw Aizen(No Lady Gaga Overdrive,huh? It looks very cool,even though I dislike the guy.

Well, Rangiku's backstory will tie a lot with Gin's backstory hopefully. So IMO it will not be a mere side story. Hopefully it will explain why Gin decided to join Aizen

Seconded (thirded?). This past chapter has reminded me of exactly why I got into this show, and it's all good that we have so many secondary and terciary characters; at this point, however, I kinda would like a bit more focus on the charcaters that got most of us into the show to begin with. I hope the other responder to this post is right in that this will tie into the current plot and Gin's inevitable downfall.

Kubo may write a side story explaining why Matsumoto became a Shinigami.

OMG, want.

It would be an interesting read.
honeyhammerhoneyhammer on June 19th, 2010 04:45 am (UTC)
I would happily take the backstory of any character. Character histories in general are quite interesting, IMO.
magic_truth: Buahahahamagic_truth on June 19th, 2010 08:55 am (UTC)
I would love a Rangiku backstory. It would shed some light on Gin and also why he never asked Ran to join Aizen's side (I mean assuming he had a choice).
hinodehhinodeh on June 19th, 2010 09:32 am (UTC)
I'd enjoy some Rangiku backstory. Still, i hope it won't be inserted into the middle of this arc.

He's self-medicating with Mont Blanc according to his Twitter. I worry.

Personally, I'm actually looking forward to these new characters. XD I'm keenly interested in Hikifune in particular and have high hopes for more badass women (eg Yoruichi... though her last performance was dismal, admittedly) that aren't just eyecandy (eg Halibel). Most of my hopes are set on seeing whether or not Kubo can come up with characters that aren't anything like the captains. The remix he did of most of them in HM was a little disheartening even if he gave them all very compelling.

In short, I feel like RR is a second chance for Kubo to prove himself on the character design front, and if not, well, I'll still be reading, naturally, but I reserve my right to critique and headdesk.
