WSJ Ichigo and Rukia ad image  

Thank you to Ku (poppy_moon)  who scanned a two page ad from this week's WSJ that features the Ichigo and Rukia parting scene from the last chapter. There were some other Hellverse pics in the Jump issue but unfortunately we don't have them scanned. One featured Ichigo wrapped in tentacles too ( sorry, tentacle fans). Anyway, image under the cut. It's only a few more days until spoilers and a brand new color spread by Kubo-sensei.

Fugly minions scan from same WSJ issue found by Annie on 2ch but no trace of Ichigo in tentacles (yet :(  )

Also, Sensei drew Rukia on cardboard at some event. The fans on 2ch are very excited. We should definitely have a scan of that soon. It's late in Japan just now but later yes.
Current Mood: busybusy

I thought the exact same thing! I was just about to jokingly post a "Hey, what's this shoujo manga doing on the WSJ ad page?"-type comment when I noticed yours.

The hell guy with the tentacles coming out of his face is genuinely creepy, but the rest look ridiculous.

BTW, am I the only one who is reminded of Dark!Rukia when I see the main bad guy? He has the same color sheme and a similar outfit.

Which one? I have the bigger version of SJ ads for Bleach, but not the anime one. XD

And the SJ ads has been translated already by Nacchan =)

So... I guess there are no hollows in Hell... you just mutate into something very fug? XD Perhaps you look ugly to reflect the state of your soul? I'm reaching for some depth here lol... Of course, the prettier you are the more evil you are bound to be, still.

I'm glad they used that scene for promotional purposes. They know how to stoke the flames. XD I really hope they do it justice in the anime. I thought the goodbye between Orhime and Ulquiorra was rushed, but I think (hope) they spend more time on this scene and get the mood down perfectly. And no QFA moments, god forbid. They've been doing a pretty good animation job lately, but it's by no means perfect/smooth. So hopefully some melodramatic staring won't be too hard.

My life would be complete if that color spread is a colored version of the goodbye scene... *dies*
kaibasgirl on October 24th, 2010 04:23 am (UTC)
I concur. Dang, I really wish that was in color ;__;
qwirky on October 23rd, 2010 11:15 pm (UTC)
T___T That scene still generates massive amounts of tears. ;___________; WSJ, you are wonderful/evil. ;__;

Having a touching IchiRuki moment smack dab in the middle of all those tough guy shounen dudes is quite a contrast.

It's almost as if all the other characters surrounding Ichigo and Rukia are glaring at the reader and saying,
"We ship this... deal with it!"

That Zarbon-like hair looks completely random on the red guy.
_debbiechan_: SZAYEL JEALOUSY_debbiechan_ on October 24th, 2010 02:56 am (UTC)

HAHA, he has Zarbon hair. Now there was a Bad Guy. They don't have to be fugly. *is in favor of ambiguously gay pretty villains like Zarbon and Szayel*

I had no idea WSJ were changing genres.
redgreendressredgreendress on October 24th, 2010 01:33 am (UTC)
Do these magazine ad-thingies usually foreshadow anything about the story? Like, can we predict a nakama-based storyline for next chapter or something? New to Shounen manga fandom, so I wouldn't know.

And, oh yeah -- aww, Ichigo and Rukia.
_debbiechan_: KUKUKU_debbiechan_ on October 24th, 2010 02:53 am (UTC)

History has shown that you really can't trust Jump ads for shit. XD XD XD But sometimes they end up predicting the chapters for next week more or less correctly. XD

Tentacle dude must be related to Metastacia. Also ew.

heladeazulheladeazul on October 24th, 2010 05:34 am (UTC)
color? I look forward
I wonder if it will be to sustain the absence the Rukia in the manga
lonely_sparkleslonely_sparkles on October 24th, 2010 06:36 am (UTC)

Speaking of which... will Rukia appear in the next chapter? *3*

I'm no IchiRuki fan and I haven't been reading the manga lately, but their scene reminds me of a Shoujo scene (one of those romantic type goodbyes).
senna23senna23 on October 25th, 2010 09:29 am (UTC)
I guess this scene really shows SOMETHING... xD
I felt like I was in shoujo world when this one shows up on my screen...
