New Bleach Manga Calendar is Out!  

Go HERE and click on Ichigo to see the calendar ad. The New Year's Spread is featured but it edits out tiny Ishida and Chad the temple virgins (alas!). The calendar is also foldable so there's Ichigo, Rukia and Renji on one side and Orihime on the other.

I've liked the designs of the two previous calendars better--but at least we got a new cover. I know that Sensei is a very VERY busy man what with the movie, the spine pics and Bleach's 10th anniversary coming up. The calendar design looks pretty. I usually don't like re-doings of Sensei's stuff but the composition isn't bad.

ETA--Annie just told me that we WILL be getting a new cover for the calendar. Something to look forward to! Ten to one it's a nakama theme. I just hope Chad and Ishida are bigger this time. XD

Thank you, Annie and debbie. Hoping the new cover comes out soon. :3

Lol, Ichigo looks so sweet and puppy-like in that drawing - it seems he's trying to hypnotize the viewers into buying the calendar. XD

Still not sure how much I like the design this time 'round, but am really looking forward to seeing the new cover spread! ♥

Hmmm...it's an ok design I suppose. I'm not really excited here, unfortunately. :/

Can't wait for the cover! KT's spreads are always so beautiful. I also predict a nakama pic.

*wants to say something about who is featured in this pic and why it is amusing, but shuts up about it*

Looking forward to it! Thanks for the info! :D

Ichigo is... smiling?! Love Rukia walking off in the distance.

Annie showed me the design and said she wasn't sure I'd like it~ Well, I love the picture used but the edits to it (i.e., the composition) drive me mad. I have to tilt my head to properly see it. >>;; That random white bar, too, is arrrgh. That said, I already pre-ordered it :3 Want new cover. XD Since those of us who are Ichigo/Rukia fans got spoiled with this year's beautiful and blatantly shippy calendar cover, I think it's a safe bet we'll go back to a nakama cover for 2011. *_*

While I do look forward to the calendar, I have to wonder if the ad designer was drunk or something. At first I thought Rukia was an iris blossom, angled almost upside down. And the placement of Renji... it's like he's either looking at Rukia's feet or up Ichigo's cloak. lol

I'm dying for the cover of this. I hope we'll have a nakama spread (with bigger Ishida please sensei :D)

Maybe this question has been answered before but how much do these calendars run in USD and does Shueisha ship internationally?

I've never bought one of these before but I'd like to start! ^^

Whats the difference between this calender and these 2: http://p.tl/mz1Y & http://p.tl/LqXa

Basically, 3 calendar sets get released each year (usually). One Bleach comic calendar (the one being discussed here in this post, which feature Kubo's spreads from the year), plus 2 other sets - Calendars A & B (the ones you linked to, which feature illustrations based on the current anime storyline).

To give you an idea of what they look like, here are the links to the 2010 calendar sets: COMIC, SET A & SET B.

Hope that clears things up a bit! ^^

lol That is a very interesting~ way to promote the new calender. XD

I've never bought a Bleach calendar, and probably never will, but I'm happy to hear that Kubo will be doing some new art for it.
