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*
