Bleach 412 is Out  
Bleach 412 is out at MangaStream.

REMINDER: Do NOT Tweet to Kubo about this chapter, or use avatars from this chapter's art to Tweet to him, until Monday.

Ahahaha, Rangiku put Don Kanonji in his place. So violent! Don Kanonji has to be chased off by her.

More Tatsuki->Ichigo vibes with Tatsuki noting how gorgeous Matsumoto is and Tatsuki annoyed that Ichigo never told her about his beautiful friend.

Aizen indulges Gin's whims and calls him a "funny kid."

Ahhh. Rangiku/Gin~~! Rangiku brings up Kira, but Gin's not happy with that - he seems to understand that she is speaking for herself, rather than Kira. Hmm. What a strange confrontation. I don't know quite what to make of it. Gin's so... Gin. We can never tell what he's thinking, even here. And then he stabs her? Apparently, as there's blood on her, but that it wasn't shown... Who knows. I'm still not sure on who was grabbing the necklace, but I think it was Gin.

KEIGO! You sweet boy. You found Mizuiro, and then you came back with the afro shinigami's sword, despite not knowing kendo or anything. :D He wants to protect his friends this time. <3

Ichigooooooooooo. Man. We only see him dripping blood, and Isshin saying "still?" It must've been a while...

and he got them up again when I didn't see any blood on Rangiku.



On her chest.

Damnit, I was hoping there'd be more of Ichigo's fight.

But still! I'm not a Gin/Ran shipper, but why does it feel that he's playing up the creeper/psychotic bastard here to throw her off? I dunno, just feels a bit forced out of him right now.

And how long has Ichigo been having his pow wow in his head? Isshin looks ready to drop, has it been three months so far?
(Anonymous) on July 15th, 2010 07:55 pm (UTC)
Don's reaction to the threat of 'stauchecastration was hilarious!

And Tatsuki "Dammit, you didn't tell me that you have found a pretty friend Ichigo" oooooh jealous?

And Matsumoto... you're gonna ask why Gin betrayed Kira? Be honest now girl. And Gin stabbing her... ever since his convo with Rukia I didn't like him, but now? He's really tempting to hate him. I wonder if he actually took the necklace or not.

(And Ichigo in the end... getting owned by Shirogetsu much?)
(Anonymous) on July 15th, 2010 07:57 pm (UTC)
Shinigami papa looks like he's gonna drop any minute. Have three months passed already?

And I wanted more from Keigo with that sword dammit.

Oh come on, Kubo. Totally gypping us out of more Ichigo fight? GRR. Though I have to admit, Don Kanonji and Rangiku and Tatsuki made me laugh. And aww at Tatsuki's little bit of envy.

Seriously. Making us wait another week to even start the fight.

BTW, hey Toastbat.

I'm not an GinRan shipper but I loved the (sexual) tension. KT's really good at that.

Also, I loved Rangiku going off at Kanonji like that. <3
_debbiechan_: KUKUKU_debbiechan_ on July 15th, 2010 08:04 pm (UTC)

WAAAAAAAH. Kubo DELIVERS for this GINRAN shipper and GIN FAN.

First, has there ever been so much TEN SI ON? So sexy. Gin can have his evil way with me anytime (this is just my sick fantasy, you understand--*flashes feminist cred* I AM ENTITLED TO MY LURVE OF BASTARDS IN FANTASY!) Gotta love Sensei's close-ups. Rangiku is so stunning in her righteous anger and I-will-be-justified poses. (Also, looooove how Don Kanonji had to be practically chased off panel by her--HE DIDN'T RUN AWAY--HE WAS A HERO ALL THROUGH HIS SCHTICK--still in stunning contrast to the Ichigo who faltered!)

Gin was in character too insofar that his motives are ever mysterious and we're all still debating them. We were debating when the spoilers came out and the first Chinese scan pics and will be for chapters and chapters later, I'm sure. All I know is that when he swept her up in his arms, Kubo HAD to know that there was no way that the audience was expecting roses--there's been danger grinning in the dark corners of this relationship from THE VERY BEGINNING.

Tatsuki! I see Tatsuki-->Rangiku even though you IchiTatsu people can cheer all you want. In my mind she's gay ever since Kubo made that joke about her complaining that her parents didn't want her to go to this event "because boys would be there." I think she likey the beautiful girls--and holy moly, Rangiku never looked more beautiful. I hate it that Kubo always makes his women so gorgeous at times like this but then again--everyone suffers so beautifully in Bleach. The man can't help but draw lookers.

Keigo. <3 Oh Afro-san, I guess you're down for the count and this town belongs to Keigo now?

I loved this chapter. *goes to read again*

/happy happy Gin fangirl

oh? Any idea what that last shaded panel is? I keep thinking I'm seeing things and its just speed lines of Aizen and Gin taking off somewhere but then I think it's Aizen closing his eye--like he's onto Gin, which I'm sure he is.

(Anonymous) on July 15th, 2010 08:13 pm (UTC)
But.. wouldn't the joke make more sense that she can't go where boys are because she'd flirt with them? (I admit I'm naive when it comes to yuri so I might have entirely missed the point of the joke.)

Still, Rangiku is so pretty, even Tatsuki noticed. Too bad Gin is a grey card villain, or else he would be a lucky, lucky guy.

_debbiechan_: KUKUKU_debbiechan_ on July 15th, 2010 08:08 pm (UTC)

qwirky, forgot to thank you for posting. And I'M SO SURE that's Gin's hand there fondling Ran's boob/touching her heart/lifting her necklace/whatever... Gin is always drawn with delicate hands(see avie) and Matsumoto's nails are longer.

Yep, Gin copped a feel before he stabbed her. XD Oh I love him. <3
sakurahououji_n on July 16th, 2010 12:43 am (UTC)
I think Gin is the one that gave her the necklace in the first place. You know Matsu never lets anyone feel her up like that be she doesn't even try to push his hand away (yes I think it's his hand). I've always thought those two had something between them. I think Gin was protecting her the only way he could. If Aizen had got her, she would have been blown to bits, but Gin taking her away and just stabbing her saves her kinda. because it kinda proves he is still loyal to Aizen for Aizen's sake, but also he probably didn't stab her fatally only enough to prevent her from following them anymore. He knows that other Shinigami will be coming and she will be found. That's my take anyway.

Loved the chapter and the Aizen-Gin_Matsumoto byplay but yeah I was hoping for more to be revealed like what's Ichigo actually DOING, not just that single page implying the 3 mths are up, and what about everyone in HM? I want to know what going on there too. I'm willing to bet next week will show Ichigo win against TensaHollow-san but then will cut to either the real word or HM. These last few chapters seem like they are all about nothing but the TEASE.

I loved Rangiku in this chapter ^_^
I was definitely feeling the Tatsuki -> Ichigo shippy vibes!

eris4: YuukoFumoRosaeris4 on July 15th, 2010 08:15 pm (UTC)
Oooooh, I can't believe Tatsuki said that! I like how it sounds! More than it should be--

GinRan... I want to know what Aizen knows about Gin we don't know. It was a very long time since we saw that creepy smile on Gin's face.
unfinishedwing: BLEACH / hitsumatsuunfinishedwing on July 15th, 2010 08:20 pm (UTC)
How's Gin being called a "funny kid" for a change? lol

Rangiku was so beautiful. I've always argued against the existence of IchiTatsu but Tatsuki being jealous of Rangiku was pretty funny and convincing.
(Anonymous) on July 15th, 2010 08:25 pm (UTC)
Oh yes. That comment just stenched of jealousy.

Makes me wonder if Tatsuki had puppy eyes for Ichigo even when she gave Orihime tips to 'take him down'.

and gaaa-ah, I hate Gin. I can't think of any other character I despise so much.
(Anonymous) on July 15th, 2010 08:23 pm (UTC)
I know I might be a little silly, but... am I the only one who is seeing vibes between this GinRan confrotation and the Hearts convo between Orihime and Ulquiorra? I mean, closeups; check. Eyesmex; check. Aizen; check. Cop a feel; check. The difference is that whilst Gin eventually got rid of Matsumoto, and abrubtly too, Ulquiorra just didn't want to let Orihime go, even after their conversation got interrupted. Also he didn't stab her.

Don't want to provoke anything, I-I'm merely saying.
_debbiechan_: KUKUKU_debbiechan_ on July 15th, 2010 08:30 pm (UTC)

Don't worry. LOL. I've already heard the comparison. Yeah, it's been noted! I definitely see a lot of HEART TOUCH going on here. I thought Gin was copying his mentor Aizen but yeah, of course Ulqui copped a feel first.

Loved this chapter!

Matsumoto, you didn't go there to ask about Kira...and Gin knows this. I have to say the shading in this chapter was wonderful, especially in regards to Gin.

Aw, Keigo, you can't even use a sword but you're trying to protect your friends! Bet he'll get some kind of power that makes the sword do something.

Also, damn, Keigo can actually sense reiatsu well enough to tell that someone he can't even see is coming closer. How strong is he anyway?
mezzo_marinaiomezzo_marinaio on July 15th, 2010 08:33 pm (UTC)
I definitely felt both TatsuIchi AND TatsuRan vibes in this chapter. XD

And you know what? As much as I LOVE Ichigo and am terribly curious about the new developments going on in his head, Kubo could write HUNDREDS OF CHAPTERS about the Karakura kids trying their best to defend their city and friends despite not having any powers and you can bet I'd GOBBLE THEM RIGHT UP.

Yeah, I've been missing those guys THAT MUCH. ♥♥♥

Now, just give me back my Rukia and I'll call a truce with your pacing, sensei. :3

Aizen, for his part, is STILL not providing us anything interesting to debate among ourselves, eh? I'm surprised he hasn't fallen asleep by now, the lazyass. *sigh*
Danielwdboldstar on July 15th, 2010 08:45 pm (UTC)
Haha, yeah, I'm all for both interpretations of Tatsuki's little theme. I've long figured she's Bisexual anyway. ^_^

And I do agree with you, seeing Tatsuki again has been amazing. I love what the SS and even the HM Arc bought us, but sometimes I long for this simple days where Ichigo and Rukia slew Hollows by Night and hung out with their friends at school by day, so it's really nice to see them again.
