REMEMBER NOT TO TWEET SENSEI ABOUT THIS CHAPTER OR TO INCLUDE ICONS FROM IT IN YOUR TWEETS IT DOESN'T OFFICIALLY HIT THE JAPANESE NEWSTANDS UNTIL MONDAY.
AHHH, I could eat this whole chapter up in bites the way Orihime seems to be savoring that cupcake on the splash page!
I see all these fingers looking up "dissonance" on google right now, lmao, but the first thing I thought of was the musical term and the resonance (haha) of the musical theme from the "A Day Without Melodies" chapter title. Something's off with Ichigo. Of course the term "delicious" implies that it may be something GOOD in this case?
Orihime's hairpins on her lapel in the coverpage. Why aren't they holding back her long long bangs? Cue speculation.
Well as most of you know I've been hyperventilating since the spoilers came out because of the THREE AND A HALF PAGES OF ISHIDA AND ORIHIME INTERACTION just in time for my ISHIHIME BIRTHDAY CONTEST this FRIDAY. Happy Birthday to me and thank you Sensei for the delicious adorableness that is this pair. I love it that it was just the two of them, no Tatsuki or Ichigo--and we got that adorable "Ishida-kuuuun!" to open the chapter and right away Mr. Serious goes google-eyed before Orihime once more. Love how Orihime admits to be a weirdo so easily and curious that she has to confirm with Ishida first if Ichigo is indeed kidnapped (wouldn't she rush off to save him right away?) and that she didn't know where he'd been working for the past six months...
I need to know more about Orihime. And if those hairpins are just located above her heart for "fanservice" or poetical purposes on that splash page or if that's their actual canonical location. :fufu
The one panel of Isshin made me squee too. And LOL AT ICHIGO MENTIONING HE LOVES CHOCOLATE. <3 We're all sensing something all right--it's called IMPENDING PLOT.
Of course that means, as always with Sensei, more questions. I thought Jinta and Ururu were droids of some sort sort so how come they've actually matured physically.... and omg, KARIN! More Karin is a good thing. I never even dared to dream of more Karin in the Bleach plot but lately Kubo-sensei has been making my cup overflow.
ETA--ROTFLMAO, rotflmao--SUN AND MOON is a chain of restaurants operated by the Suntory Food and Beverage International Group.... I found this out when I looked up "Suntory bread." Hahaha. Deliciousness indeed.
