409 spoilers  
Get yer Bleach 409 Spoilers here!

Okaaaaaaay. The nakama are surrounding a TWO-HEADED BIRD? HAHAHAHA, like Kubo's twitter avie? What's the deal with the two headed birds? I looked up two headed eagles and they're supposed to represent heraldry and there's a myth about them killing a bull. Maybe Ichigo and Zangetsu are going to defeat the moo-moo beast that Ichigo became on the dome...

So... Zangetsu turned into Hitsugaya with a wig?

Yes, two head eagles are common in heraldry. Amy even sent a pic of her national emblem to Kubo that has a two headed eagles (he faved it). It's going nicely with the lion/lys themes. And yes, it was Kubo's avatar as a sketch. I'm amazed. I love this spread.

ANd oh yeah. ZANGESTU.

That was my first thought as well.

Especially, since Kubo said he really liked the letter he got from a fan in Russia about Ulquis death scene.

Kind of disappointed that Zangetsu became bishi but if the form he saw before was what he would look like if Ichigo was Isshin's age it is acceptable. Not to mention the eyes and black hair and small eyebrows make him look too much like an IchiRuki love child.

Also it seems that Isshin's zanpakutou is written 炎月 if I am reading what Ohana said properly so he is a Blazing Moon that fathered a Cutting Moon eh? Interesting and 月 being familial in Kurosaki zanpakutou explains Isshin's GT

I can already see the plethora of Ichigoxyoung!Zangetsu yaoi/shounen-ai fanfics that will sprout from this chapter... Like WHOA. He is soooo cyyuuuuuuute!!!! >.<

Two-headed Eagle... this has also connections to Constantinople and the Byzantine Empire... Hello, Kubo? What exactly do you refer to?

So, Gagaizen was killing whomever was awake in the Karakura town... DAMN. This means Tatsuki is in BIG danger. Time to awaken the powers, Karakura, heroes!!

Young Zangetsu....UNF!!!

Spread sounds nice. Hope it isn't another one of those wanky ones where some people are going to imply pairings (ichihime/renruki with barely existent chad and uryuu). Can't wait to see it.

I fear for Tatsuki and the others in KT :(

Also, about the 2-headed bird thing in the spread:

I was hoping that young!Zangetsu would look something like the lovechild of Starrk and Shunsui but... he looks like a Kuchiki that went rogue on the hairfront. XDD I was afraid that Kubo would bishify Zangetsu, and while I'd like to say that this is "Hogwash!" "Give me back my manly Zangetsu!", I'm too mesmerized by the pretty~ness of this new form. Damn. He's also giving me human!Ulquiorra vibes for some reason, too...

I've always taken solace in thinking Ichigo was an old soul, though, hmm. I have a feeling Kubo wasn't planning on this, but I'm willing to see where he wants to go with it. Maybe Zangetsu looked old because he was weak or not in tune with Ichigo enough? I'm curious as to the reasoning behind this, since I find it a perfectly acceptable concept for zanpakutou to evolve along with their masters over time.

The colorpage looks so amazing. T-T The picture is blurry but it's obvious that Rukia is looking fantastic in this spread. I would have preferred Chad or Ishida to have some more forward action, but I guess they're not fanservicey enough? I don't know anymore. The two-headed eagle could be in reference to several things, but Kubo's twitter profile pic is of an eagle so I'm more inclined to think he drew it just because he likes them aesthetically--thinks they look cool.

Seeing Aizen in color is also a good bonus I feel like we're getting candy after last weeks borefest. XD He looks good. But Tatsuki! Keigo! Tats and Aizen having a convo wasn't something I had predicted so I expect some interesting word swagger on Aizen's part. He might decide to toy around with them since he probably knows they are Ichigo's nakama.

Perhaps its the sword responding to what the wielder needs? Before he needed a father figure, now he needs an equal opponent?

So when a shinigami obtains bankai, their bankai is represented separate/differently than their shikai? Huh.

If that's the case, then this makes a lot of sense. Zangetsu is wide, tall and big, Tensa Zangetsu is smaller, sleeker, and more compact, thus the personification would be as well.

And honestly, TZ looking like Ulquiorra is not a coincidence to me. TZ is wrathful and angry, admonishing Ichigo for his actions and questioning his motives. The fact that he deeply resembles the person Ichigo killed and harbors tremendous regret and self-recrimination towards fits perfectly.

Lol, Tensa Zangetsu was born for Rukia's sake, long before Ichigo even met Ulquiorra.

I wonder what kanji is used for the "En" in "Engetsu."
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on June 23rd, 2010 02:37 pm (UTC)

looks like "flame" or "burning"
