More awesome Bleach shirts, Kubo changes 423 title  
Okay, the Ulqui shirt is still my favorite but these shirts are to die for. The Death and Strawberry one (however they've misspelled it! XD) is a must-have. Too bad I don't have the monies. T__T  And waaah, the coasters only available in Japan with drawings by Sensei--a friend got her favorite, Rukia, on her first try buying volume 48! Lucky!

Annie found the ads and also the info that Sensei has changed chapter 423 title's in Volume 48 from "Farewell Swords" to "Bleach my Soul". HOW FITTING. I love how Sensei is always worrying about the poetry of his work. "Bleach my soul" is so "what comes around goes around" and refers to the first chapter of the story. I love Sensei's parallels.

The title of Volume 48 "G-D IS DEAD" is my favorite yet and I'm dyyyying for translations of the poem.

G-d is dead as in Aizen replacing him--G-d as in the play on the deicide chapter titles, Gin's ban kai name, and the eventual death of Ichigo's own death god... it's such a clever clever (and yes poetic poetic title).

People can call me a Kubo-fag all they want and think that I act like his sensitive nuances are too beyond the plebian understanding but damn it what other manga-ka writes such lovely poetry for his volumes and characters? And Kubo-sensei's art blows so many other comics out of the water. BLEACH is awesome. I love it so and always will. *blows raspberry at how can you like that trolly manga people*

Oh, so Sensei changed the title for chapter 423 to Bleach My Soul? That's awesome! I like the sound of that. :D

Ah, Debbie, it's not wrong to love Kubo and his poetry. I've always loved them -- to me, they add... a "soul" and art to his work. Which I rarely find in other manga.

I love the title for volume 48 btw. XD♥

His poems give so much depth and meaning to the story. Really one of a kind ♥

Kubooooooo! Just when I think I'm getting sick of you, you go and do something awesome. :D

I still really want that Ulquiorra shirt. So tempted to make one.

I know, right? I love that Ulqui t-shirt. So very delicious.

And I love your icon. Time to steal!

If I bought it, I'd be in real danger of never wanting to take it off. D:

Steal away!

LOL. But that'll be an awesome thing. Or not. Your choice. XD

They should make more Ulqui t-shirts! I'll make the designs for those merchandising people! :D

Don't worry, you're not the only Kubo fag here XD *cheers with you*

Just don't make me start on what I love about Kubo/Bleach... i'll weep like the fanfag I am lawl.

Kubo sensei's "sensitive nuances" is what makes him the best mangaka in the World to me, that and his beautiful art style, specially the character's expressions and emotion range... All of the stuff that makes me feel connected or identified somehow with his soul. I've read many, many comics, novels, manga, etc... And non of them have reached me as much as Kubo has <3333. Bleach is awesome indeed ^__^

Interesting that he changed the title. It really suits it, for a starting over, cleansed and renewed...

I thought the volumes always had their titles taken from specific chapters within them? Was there ever a "God is Dead" chapter, or was my assumption wrong?

Also, Bleach My Soul > Farewell Swords. Kubo is so romantic :D
(Anonymous) on December 3rd, 2010 06:58 pm (UTC)
i think its supposed to refer to the Deicide chapters.
nahlackasexical on December 4th, 2010 01:47 am (UTC)
I understand that much, but I meant was there ever an actual chapter titled "God is Dead"? I don't recall one.
patcchi on December 3rd, 2010 04:41 pm (UTC)
'Sensitive nuances'? Oh but that's what makes Bleach special! I wouldn't love it any other way. Because Kubo doesn't only have a plot and characters and a story and pretty art, he has a story behind every character, a plot full of hidden meanings, and characters that are more than just a face. Kubo is a master in what he does, really. I mean, where are going to find another shounen like Bleach?

I've been clamoring for wearable Kubo designs since day one, but the fits on these shirts suck. I was hoping more for Edun.com style tailoring: http://www.edun.com/shop/men/t-shirts/# The imagination of the clothing doesn't match the reality.

Didn't Niestzche (sp) say something like that? Urgh. *brain overheats*

I liked the name "Farewell Swords", but "Bleach My Soul" is so much more poignant and awesome ;A;♥ It seems he wants to make 423 as perfect as possible, the IR fangirl in me is all giddy XD!

I love the volume poems, so I can't wait to read this one. Excited to see the chapter doodles as well.

Those shirts are awesome, I so want the Ulqui one and the "Death & Strowberry" one - spelling mistakes and all XD♥

Hey dawg, we herd u liek some nuance in yo' Bleach so we changed yo' chapter title so you can Bleach while you Soul.
mrdracospirit on December 3rd, 2010 10:52 pm (UTC)
It’s the emotional punch of Bleach that keeps me reading :) It also constantly surprises me that KT keep making those punches and when he makes them too.

I mean Bleach is action/comedy with boob jokes and completely over the top fight scenes... yet it still sometimes hits pretty deep. The mix of moods and how fluidly he switches is amazing :)
nimucle on December 3rd, 2010 11:10 pm (UTC)
I'm curious... has Kubo ever changed the titles of any previous chapters or is this the first time he has done so?
qwirky on December 3rd, 2010 11:31 pm (UTC)
He's done it before. See http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Chapters#Others_notes for reference :]
nimucle on December 3rd, 2010 11:46 pm (UTC)
I had a feeling that this was already done before. Thanks for sharing the link!

No way, this forum and your writing are very important and a great anchor for someone like me, especially seeing as how it seems that although there are a million message boards dedicated to Bleach, there aren't a whole lot of places where people can find conversation in any true depth on the kinds of things that you guys bring up and that I find so captivating about the manga. Thank you!

Just want to say that the IchiRuki shipper within greatly appreciates that Ichigo is wearing the Death/Strawberry shirt. ;)
Slipstremeslipstreme on December 4th, 2010 11:08 pm (UTC)
Love the title change myself. Less finality than the first and shows better what Ichigo has been going through IMO.

I still want that pic of Aizen as a poster. I'm so expecting people to be up in flames over the title when that finally gets officially translated over here. *rolls eyes*

Why does the Kon shirt say HTML on it?
arihdniarihdni on December 5th, 2010 05:16 am (UTC)
being sincere, I'm not an Aizen fangirl....yet I don't dislike him but this cover is way beyond cool love that snide grin full evilness.

and kubo now how to play with wordsm, let them be japanese, spanish or english.
