Merchandise  
First thanks to everyone who contributed entries and gifts yesterday and helped make my birthday so special. I was so happy that we got a lovely three and a half page Ishida and Orihime scene in the manga just in time to rouse everyone's spirits too. The mods and I will get together a voting poll soon so you can choose your favorites in the two categories fanart and fanfic, but as I always like to say, the winners are fandom--in this case, the IshiHime fandom which rarely gets many goodies but it's been a special week for us (and yays for the UlquiHimeIshi entries--hey, I really was open about the fic category in the contest description so I'm letting both UlquiHimeIshi entries stand in the competition for prizes--and I just happen to love the trio and think its all hot as get-out so THANKS <3)

Fandom can be so crazy and debilitating but so fun sometimes so thanks again everybody. I really can't believe how big this community has grown--and all from my not wanting to flood my personal LJ with my blah blah about Bleach so I started this comm for my fic and observations. Six years now as a Bleach manga reader for me and 10 whole years of Bleach! The merchandise goodies would put me in debt if I bought them all (my comic calendar came--holy moly is that thing HUGE--it's in the box taking up the whole foyer). The movie goodies have included everything from Bleach foods to Bleach cork coasters. Here are some:





Insert all "I could eat him up" jokes here.



COASTERS! There was an Ishida one (he tends to get left out of the merchandising--he didn't make the hawt mens anime calendar this year--booo) I really have my eye on the UlquiHime coaster. There was a IchiHime one as well (no Ishida and Orihime--boo again) and nods to various pairings like GinRan and GinKira and HitsuMomo in the merchandising. If I lived in Japan I'd voice my consumer shipping preferences so loudly! (like hey, I made Ky buy me RENISHI pens last year during her holiday).



This is the mousepad I wish I had (I don't need it--my current Orihime EAT MORE LEEKS mousepad is so nice!) but I'm a sucker for Chappy stuffs and this one is IchiRuki.



Niii-saaaama! And I'd love that Gin and Aizen badge--my love for that pairing hasn't died even though one of the characters has (has he? Oh Sensei--I'll never trust you when you kill characters). In my head canon, AiGin and GinRan both work and I can see the GinKira tension even though I don't like the pairing. I'd certainly eat that Gin and Kira ice cream that was being sold in promotion for the movie. XD

I guess I'll just be happy with my calendar if I ever want my kids to go to college--I seriously can NOT buy any more Bleach stuff. And thanks again for all the contributions to the contest yesterday and for everyone's contributions to this community over the years--fandom stuffs are always better than mugs and pins in my book, second only to canon drawings from the manga-ka himself. The fanworks from all of you are the greatest--don't stop! My love for Bleach hasn't stopped yet so keep it coming! <3

There was a VIAGRA AD? lol, SOMEONE GOT IT. I missed it. There was a Russian women one the other day and popular entries like the one about Jump Festa where Kubo wouldn't confirm Ulquiorra's death get ads in the comments sometimes.

I have to say, this years contest was the best so far.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 20th, 2010 07:31 pm (UTC)

Really? It was a little lean in the fic department but all the stuff was high quality and so lovely, wasn't it? I was so pleased--I thought people wouldn't do stuff because it was finals time, etc....

<3

Where did you get that picture with rukia and ichigo eating something? xD I've seen it once and another one with mini-rukia on ichigo's head or something xD but i don't know from what it is Dx
Kylarakarenai on November 20th, 2010 11:15 pm (UTC)
Ah, well the icon is by aentee at avantgeeks, but if you mean the picture... that's from the New Year's omake. I can't find the scanlated version, but here's the raw:

I believe that's from 2007 so Ganjyu is happy about it being the year of the boar (because of his love for Bonnie). He goes to the Kurosakis to bother Ichigo about something -- Rukia is over for new year's. :)

AMEN FOR THAT! *_________* unf!

This has been such an awesome week to begin with. The three and half pages in Bleach (THANKS SENSEI!! *_*), all the posting in the IshiHime FC at BA *_* and now the Contest full of pure awesome works, My eyes can't believe the quality of the IshiHime fandom, well I knew there were goo IshiHime artist but not that much and young artists with so much potential if they keep working *___________*

I'm such a happy IshiHime fanb right now.


About the merchandising, well, it's sad that the main Quincy resident doesn't get as much love as he deserves but I LOVE the fact that Kubo never forgets about him (see Movie 4th, if it wasn't for sensei being Producer, I can imagine that this movie would be all about shinigamis -3-) THANKS YOU SENSEI, THANK YOU TO BE IN THE MOVIE TEAM!!!
