Bleach 426 is Up  
Bleach 426 is up at MangaStream.

Reminder: AFAIK, no one on Bleachness has done this, but I keep seeing people tweet to Kubo about chapters or using icons from this chapter before Monday. Stop.

The title page is cute.

Ichigo+Ishida team-up and bickering == adorable.

Ishida is student council president <333333

Urahara is the one who informs Ishida about hollows and even gave him a cell phone. <333 Guess Urahara has made up with Soul Society?

Ichigo with Yoko-chin == cute.

Ichigo does the "refuse" hand sign, similar to the one he did at the beginning of the series with Rukia.

I like Ikumi. But then, I like kick-ass female characters, and she's also crazy and eccentric, so it's all good to me. She's also pretty. <33 karenai wondered if Masaki was like Ikumi - putting on the 'perfect mother' routine for her children, then turning around and being wild when they weren't around. XD

Ichigo and Ikumi are fun together. (But poor Ichigo, dealing with Ikumi's kid.) So Ichigo's part-time job is basically doing anything for anyone. Ikumi would probably get along with, or fight with, Urahara - I'm not sure which. And Ichigo doesn't like older women? Lies. XD

Ah, it's Squall Leonhart the male OC, who has brought ramen for Ichigo. How sweet of him.

Overall, this was a cute chapter. <3 It was fluffy, amusing, and light-hearted, and I personally liked it.

Aha! I was just reading Bleach 01 today, since my Japanese teacher has no other interesting books, and "Starter" is the name of chapter two- hello, nostalgia. A lot of people are saying Uryuu's become colder, but I think if anything, he's opened up more, being all rough-and-tumble there.

...And haters gonna hate, but I think I love Unagiya. She reminds me a lot of Wolfina from Zombie Powder and Lasagna from Rave, being a badass single(?) mom.

WTF you're right! Wolfina! I knew she's got this familiar aura from somewhere!

l o l @ IchiIshi. They're so damn hilarious. I'm endlessly loving their banter.

I confess, I read her shirt and thought "eel" too. >>; I guess I'm not WRONG, but neither am I right...

... but unagiya ikumi? What are the chances that this is a real name? I dunno, is it just me? Or a name that screams SUSHI SUSHI SUSHI may not be real.

Also, Ichigo looks 100% genuinely terrified on page 12. Hah.

In other news, I think that was the dorkiest chapter of Bleach in awhile. I enjoyed it. :)

I would love someone forever if they photoshopped Ichigo's FEAR!face so that he is wearing a headband and is screaming "METAL GEEEAAAAAAR!"

Okay, first off, still funny that Ishida and Ichigo can argue in the middle of combat. Second, Ichigo getting abducted is funny, especially all the tape.

But even with all the action, it still felt like this chapter didn't go anywhere. I don't mind the break, but a little story advancement would be good. I feel like, when this gets into the anime, it will be the first quarter of an episode.

slowly but surely
well i like ichigo's boss! i thought it was hilarious how her mood changed when her kid came in. other then that, the ichigo Ishida banter was lots of fun, but still nothing really happens in this chapter except at the end when we finally see the lost agent again. though really, him offering ramen just ruined his coolness in that scene. sigh, three chapters and this is all thats happened, i wish kubo could move the plot a little faster...

Awwww, I do love mah dorky Bleach, ESPECIALLY when it involves Ichigo and Ishida. IchiIshi is my second fave Ichigo relationship (behind Ichiruki, of course xD). Their banter NEVER disappoints me and it didn't here.

I actually really like the boss. She's so kick ass and loved the 180 when she saw her kid. XD

This WAYYYY TALL (seriously, he was huge in that one panel!) new guy is intriguing me. Unfortunately he's getting Ichigo confused with Naruto XD

Hahahaha my thoughts exactly!! I was like 'ICHIRAKU RAMEN WOOOOT!' lol poor Ichigo. xD
Kylarakarenai on November 10th, 2010 10:24 pm (UTC)

I dunno, is Yoko-chin this fuckface?

Kylarakarenai on November 10th, 2010 10:26 pm (UTC)
OOPS, I forgot to flip to the next page where it identifies him. Yes, this is Yoko-chin...

Okay, I adore Unagiya. Badass Mom FTW.

And yeah, the plot didn't seem to advance much, but sometimes I like it when things get silly.

Hopefully we'll learn more about the new guy soon? Although, man, he kinda looks like Crocodile from One Piece. Maybe this was before he went to conquer Alabasta...? ;-D

Mhm. I didn't think I would, but I am kind of loving it.
Ichigo is concerned about Uryuu's reputation, Uryuu wants Ichigo to text him. :D
And I find students reporting Kurosaki's abduction to teachers hilarious. I really love such "realistic" bits, same as when people call ambulance for Ichigo when he abandons his body in the streets or when Kodachi Kuno decides to go into her evil mode and run away from the classroom to wreak havoc outside... and teacher writes into the class register that she's leaving early. XD
(Anonymous) on November 11th, 2010 12:27 am (UTC)
I'm with you 100% on this. For me, such bits are the difference between a "good series" and an "amazing and memorable" series.
And in Bleach especially, for some reason, these sorts of lines become favourites.

Oh damn the comedy is too rich. Spoilsports are already complaining about the pacing and since when did Bleach become a high school manga but geez, this is a short arc and we SAID there had to be new characters—we even called the boss lady being important just from that phone convo.

IchiIshi bickering is delish. I live for it. OH THEY SO CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER <3333333

And maaaan, MOMS IN BLEACH—can Kubo get more awesome? The new lady and her kid—hahahahahahahaha, ah *sigh* My demographic felt appealed to. She even wears her hair in my default side-ponytail style! Love how Ichigo claims not to be into older women. BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF OLDER WOMEN INTO YOUR CHARACTERS, SENSEI.

Ishida the school prez? We were wondering if he might be last week, and I’m just happy that syn’s shoujo senses are tingling because school prez and school idol are a huge trope, haha! <3

Oh translation update about upcoming anime episodes including the MOVIE PREQUEL from :

#298 映画だ!祭だ!死神映画祭!

#299 劇場版公開記念!地獄篇・序章
Movie! Festival! It's a Shinigami movie festival!
In Soul Society a movie festival is going to be held.
In Gotei 13 everyone was preparing something. And Ichigo and his friends, who for some reason was invited by Nanao, also took part in the festival. Ichigo and them became a member of "Abarai-team" where Renji is the leader. Director - Renji, Main lead - Rukia, Costume - Ishida, Cast - Rangiku, Orihime, Chad and the rest of the usual members. But Ichigo is worried whether they can actually make a movie. And which team will win the movie Festival? We will have to find out

#299 Prologue to the 4th Bleach movie
Rukia who came to the human world hears from Urahara that there are incidents where the Shinigamis are going missing. On her way home Rukia encounters a man wearing a mask attacking the Shinigami in charge of Karakura Town. She prepared for battle but after realizing the identity of the man she is shocked. The masked man was in fact the man who Rukia and Chad defeated: Shrieker (Karakura Arc). He counter strikes all of Rukia's attacks and charges towards Rukia with his strength that is nothing like how she remembered him to be like. Rukia asks how he escaped and Shrieker confesses a secret. That is the prologue the the upcoming Bleach movie

Kylarakarenai on November 10th, 2010 10:27 pm (UTC)
But is Rukia the main lead or the second main character? This is important, Deborah.

Most touching display of Ichigo/Ishida tsunderness ever! It's so obvious that they are worried about each other.


This line is the best line in all of Bleach forever and ever. We must immortalize it in a meme or something.

Awww Ichigo and Ishida banterings XD; Some things must stay the same.

And so much love for Unagiya Ikumi, she's utter badass ♥! As soon as I knew she was a kickass mum from the spoilers, my heart was lost XD; She reminds me a bit of Izumi Curtis from FMA; though it might just be the similar sounding names.

All the "Unagi" in this chapter is making me hungry, though |D;

OMG Ishida lookin' fiiiihiiiiinee! Gimme him tied to a bed in nothing but a red bow! ^_^

Apparently Urahara is still on earth.... that rules out all the speculation that has been going about that he went back to SS and took his taicho duty back.

First I thought Ichigo's boss was teaming up with Renji/Aizen-bad-baby-luv-child, but after seeing her badass mom kawaii-ness I can't believe that. First I noticed though, was Sensei's typical boobies >.<

Glad to see Ichigo still forgets faces but honestly... I didn't remember him either XD

But what's up with the ramen? Couldn't sensei come up with a more cooler or badass-er line than that? -_-"
