315 Bleach Anniversary Color Spread  

It's gorgeous. Thanks to Space for uploading it. You can see it here (keep clicking to enlarge).

Space's original post at Bleach Asylum is
here with other pictures from the Jump issue but WARNING THE POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE CHAPTER.

Again, please do not tweet Kubo-sensei about anything you're seeing here regarding this chapter or use image from this chapter for icons until after this coming Monday. The general population in Japan doesn't get this issue of Jump until then and doesn't want to be spoiled.

Interesting! So it shows all the forms Ichigo has taken till now -- Human, Shinigamis, Bankai, Vizard, and IchiBeast -- with a hint (the foot and the hem of his bankai coat) of a new/latest form? I wonder if that new form is the one we see at the end of the chapter or if it will be part of another colorspread?

I was hoping for a nakama spread but this is pretty neat.

I love the foot and the untold story of the new form.

New form? Surely you jest. I thought IchiThing was the end-all, be-all: he was Ichigo's super final ultimate transformation that he'd use to defeat Aizen-chou. :elmo But yes, the foot, and then the teaser text...! :D :D

(I don't doubt aspects of IchiThing will make it into Ichigo's final form - probably parts of the horn mask and the fur - but I believe it'll end up looking more like Tensa Zangetsu/Shiro merged, i.e. shinigami-hollow hybrid, than just IchiThing, i.e., pure hollow.)

But seriously, that spread is gorgeous. Ichigoooooooooo~! *_* *_* *_* I always love how short Ichigo's hair was at the beginning of the series (this spread, the spine, the poster from the new version of Letters from the Other Side). It looks better sliiightly longer (i.e., current length) IMO. :D

I was wondering the same thing about the foot. Overall the colour spread is really nice, beautifully drawn and composed. It's kinda cool to see all the progression Ichigo has made.

*in a corner wondering what Ichigo will look like next*

Who is betting that the hidden form is the one the spoilers described for the oncoming chapter? *w*

Wonderful spread! Me wants HQ scan! *flails*

I'd have preferred a nakama spread, but this is pretty nice. Does anyone else think Kubo's colouring style has gotten a little odd lately? I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's looking strange.

This spread like a few others in the past year is definitely using a digital texture background but the coloring on Ichigo? Hard to tell--the last Ichigo he drew seemed brighter? There was a more wash effect with the markers? Bigger strokes? Something.

The cam pics are way to low resolution to know but this spread might actually be colored digitally, not inked however. Honestly anything besides the actual magazine or 240+ dpi scans would be too low resolution to know for sure because the difference is that small when printed.

Beautiful spread -- I love the composition, it just flows so well. :) I kind of miss the days when he used Sode no Shirayuki... and then this new form wields Tensa Zangetsu and dresses shinigami-esque... that's all I can assume. sighbeam. The suspense!

Very nice spread. Seeing Ichigo in his school uniform makes me feel nostalgic.

Ichigo's evolutions uptill now. I'm still very interested to see what this new form will do. We can see he has longer hair, his right bankai sleeve is teared out and it's replaced by the chain of Tensa Zangetsu, which apparently got longer while Ichigo was training. Very interesting.

The evolution of Ichigo. This is actually quite sad. He changed from a care free teen to someone carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. Please feel better soon, Ichi-nii!

That spread of Ichigo Evolution or Devolution (or both XD) of his different stages of his journey so far (Caida y Auge de el Viaje de Ichigo), is very beautifully drawn. I want it as a poster for sure *_* <333. I love how Ichigo seems to go up (like in a graphic chart) to the zenith of his will power and then it kinda goes down from there like ^ . It sort of shows how the mood swings and then it seems to sore up after Ichithing to some other "FORM" that we can only get a glympse of, his foot and little else. Is that a long chain from his "Tensa Zangetsu" perhaps?? I'm really happy with that spread and it is very hopeful ^_^.

I really like it. So much interesting! Ichigo isn't one of my favourite characters, but his evolution is what interests me NOW about Bleach. I'm really curious about that foot! XD
