More re IchiRuki calendar spread: Kubo tweet and fanart  
Since I know you people want to hear it, here's another quote from Sensei about the IchiRuki calendar spread.  From here (and quirky ):

Annie noticed this recent tweet from Kubo:

A fan thanked Kubo for the calendar spread, then asked if Rukia's clothes were original (i.e., if they were his own idea and not based on any brands). The fan also said she wanted Rukia's outfit and that Rukia's accessories were very cute, too. Kubo replied that "those resort clothes" were original and were all his idea. Yes, Kubo called them "resort clothes." Annie said: "just say honeymoon outfits, sensei"

Who was the one who called "resort clothes?" in this comm? I know I echoed it. XD
And if you didn't like Ichigo's looooong legs in the original, maybe you'll appreciate his widdle chibi-ness in this fanart by saki:

eta: A clever way a fan is hanging the calendar. Kubo enjoyed this and said it was well displayed. His is currently being hung vertically.

Never change, Kubo. Never change.

Re: Edit--
Lurker here. :) I've been squeeing over the spread for days. Ah ha.

Full tweet translation:
"That resort outfit? My own design. Basically, I design all the clothes in the story and in color spreads from scratch. RT @HitterNumber8: @tite_kubo: Sensei, thank you so much! The outfit Rukia wears in the calendar spread, did you design it yourself? I want a dress like that... Her accessories are awfully cute, too."

Resort clothes. YOU ADMITTED IT, AH-AHA!
Kubo, you funny man.

I like Ichigo's leg in the original spread. The foot was weird, though... Great fanart, anyway! <3

Resort clothing -- hahahahahaha! No need to go to a resort for the tenth anniversary, right? They're just going together (and alone) for fun. :3

Also, that fanart.


SO CUTE. It's too adorable, oh god.

Well, then its official, they celebrated the 10th Anniversary in PRIVATE. Way to go Kubo, way to go~

Subtle has been killed by Kubo xD

So Kubo confirmed that Ichigo and Rukia were on a private getaway XD♥

And that chibi fanart is the cutest thing ever :3 I love how it seems like little Ichigo is blushing XD;

"resort clothes"?! Omg, can he be any less subtle?! XDD

And that chibi version is absolutely adorable!! Kudos to the artist, I especially love how she got down Rukia's expression perfectly! Gotta love that tantalizing smirk!
Danielwdboldstar on November 14th, 2010 08:59 pm (UTC)
Kubo-Sensei, I love you so much right now <3

Seriously. Resort clothes. A straight guy and a straight girl generally do not go to a resort together and lounge on the beach with a bottle of wine unless there are some major sexy times going on, right? I think we just got Mangaka confirmation. >:D

Ichiruki Supernova indeed. <3

My Calendar's in the mail! I'm still debating over whether to use it as an actual calendar, or get the Ichiruki spread framed for permanent display. Maybe I should have ordered 2 and done both...

This is seriously making me so happy. Does anyone know if there's an HQ of the original spread available yet?

D'awww, the fanart is precious! ♥
beruichiberuichi on November 15th, 2010 01:32 am (UTC)
haha, the one who asked the question didn't even call them "resort clothes". Oh, Kubo. XDDD

that chibi version is soooooooo adowable~ ♥

Lol! Annie honey moon indeed. Come on Sensai dont be shy, just say it already. Lol!

And now the chibi version so sweet.
oh gallant piglet,aizome on November 15th, 2010 02:23 am (UTC)
That may be the most awesome chibi fan art I have ever seen.

And whoa, "resort clothes"? Seriously? Dang! It's like every IchiRuki shipper had a week-long birthday all at the same time and he keeps giving you all huge presents. Second week of November = IchiRuki Week. XD

I think it was me!
LOL! I was responding to your lipstick comment, and I noted the lei, the accessories, and said, 'resort clothes for sure'.

Every winter the department stores put up mannequins with gorgeous flowy, frilly outfits, and I dream of cruise ships and white sandy beaches with turquoise water...!Apparently, so does Kubo!

i think the calendar spread is like the pivoting point for ichiruki relationship; from the vogue-not-sure-what-to-call-us friends/nakama to something romantic. it's like kubo's giving us a not-so-subtle transitioning preparation.. so that when their relationship develops, we wouldn't say that it's too sudden, OOC, never could've seen that coming, etc.
