WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! *____________* That look pretty cool, arrancar fans gonna be pleased with this but, good title of course although I was expecting a stylish cover instead of that x_D

At least I hope we get more info about the rest of the Karakura gang (aka six hearts x3)

Oh I think that Gilga is for Gilgamesh, which is F***ING BRILLIANT!

Compares to SOULS and VIBES covers, this one is pretty plain. Shinji is appropriate for the cover (it's "MASKED" after all). But I would have liked it more if we see him with his vaizard mask on instead of TBTP!Shinji.

But this kind of made up for his Vol. 36 where we couldn't see his face, eh?

Maybe that's not the official cover? Kubo likes to surprise us.

Neat. I guess I'll get it - my wife will be overjoyed to read more on Grimmjow.

I want that book. Like, now.
(Anonymous) on July 21st, 2010 03:15 pm (UTC)
I wanna read about Ulquiorra! He's the most mysterious of the whole bunch! And about his mysterious location hopping hollow hole.

I hope it wouldn't be the book that confirms his death though. 8
(Anonymous) on July 21st, 2010 05:41 pm (UTC)
Well, that would be cruel. Might as Kubo said it outright that he was dead when he was asked.

Besides, I remember that Ulqui's status on a Japanese website was marked alive after his death. Can anyone fill me in if its still like that even now? Much appreciated.

Shinji looks like arrancar ;____;

...Or hollow Ukitake D8

It's been a long time and we're finally getting a new databook.

Can't wait for all the new info, the poster and the interview. It's bound to be interesting.

I am crossing fingers that it will be available in English sooner rather than later. *crosses fingers*
hinodeh: fashionable Ulquihimehinodeh on July 21st, 2010 03:37 pm (UTC)
You're better off waiting for the illegal trans. Licenses, official translations and printing take a few months at least. Since this is a databook and not a manga, even if it's for a popular series, it will take a while for it to be picked up.

Which doesn't mean that you shouldn't buy the English version when it comes out, of course.

Srsly, I love how he's drawn there. :D

OMG, OMG, OMG o______O aaaaargh! *Dies of fangasm* I want me some moar KUBO ART, me wants, me wants XDDDD. I'm so happy!
So I guess is going to have the Arrancars (Espada) and perhaps the Vaizards as well? huhuhu
Oh, the cover. I really love Shinji with long hair, as non-attractive as he is (by Bleach's bishie standards XDD), he sure looked really hot with the long flowing locks while he was fighting *reminisces when he was protecting Hiyori from Aizen back in the "pendulum" arc". Damn, I'm so poor right now T______T. But me wants *sniff*

I still wonder if that's meant to be a reference to Gilgamesh.
sorry, I had to. xD - nendo_chan on July 21st, 2010 06:45 pm (UTC) (Expand)

Well it's about time we got a new character book. But when it comes to stats about strength it's kinda unnecessary with all the trolling Kubo did. Some fun facts about the Vizard and Arrancar will be nice.
Grenatescarboucle on July 21st, 2010 06:19 pm (UTC)
The characters books don't have stats. They retell the past chapters, with general information on characters.

Only SOULs has been tagged as "character book" so far. This is the second one.
