Bleach 433 is Up  
Bleach 433 is out at Mangastream.

Remember not to tweet to Kubo (even though he's sick T_T) about this chapter until Monday.




Really love the color page. It's hot.

There are many different meanings for "heart" in Bleach, so I always laugh at those who think that one character's "heart" is the same as all other "hearts" in the series XD

Ichigo, Karin, and Yuzu aren't the first shinigami/human offspring ever in the history of the world. Color me completely unsurprised.

What I am surprised by, though, is the whole "Fullbringer" thing - that their parents were attacked by hollows, and hollow-power remnants can apparently linger in humans, even being passed down onto their children. Creepy. These Fullbringers don't like their hollow-like powers, so they want to get rid of them by passing them onto a shinigami/human.

AND CHAD'S A FULLBRINGER. T__T (He's #6.) So at least one of Chad's parents was attacked by a hollow, and this explains why his powers are sorta hollow-like.

Oh, Chad. You're the best friend ever T____T You'll give up your powers if it means helping Ichigo restore his own T____T Oh, Chaaaaad. Chaaaaad. You sweet, wonderful boy. T___T

I love that Chad's able to see how much Ichigo's been hurting for the past 17 months, how much he's been hiding and denying and lying to himself. How desperately Ichigo wants to fight again so that he can protect those around him. Chad may not speak much, and he has been hugely overlooked in the manga for the last few years, but I love how in a few pages, Kubo shows just how much Chad really understands and gets Ichigo. And how much he cares for Ichigo - seeing Ichigo lying to himself hurts Chad, so that he can't even really look at him. And now Chad will sacrifice his own powers to help Ichigo. Chaaaad. T__T

Riruka cracks me up. She's crazy. And she thinks Ichigo's a hottie. <333 And Ichigo is completely clueless, as usual. Poor kid.

So what's next, then. How will the Fullbringers transfer their powers to Ichigo (it can't be easy, obviously), and what will happen to Chaaaad? T___T What about the dude who attacked Ishida? Is he perhaps a Fullbringer who actually enjoys his powers and doesn't want to part with them? Also, what's up with Ginjou having that shinigami badge when he was first introduced?



ETA #2: Clarification: scuttling pointed out that the Fullbringers need to restore Ichigo's shinigami powers first before they can give him their powers, not that giving him their powers will restore his. One wonders then how many human/shinigami like Ichigo there have been before? Or does the recipient of the Fullbringer power just need to be more like Karin - a human with latent shinigami abilities?

And is the Fullbringers' power itself necessary to restoring Ichigo's abilities? One would think Urahara and Isshin would talk to Ichigo if they knew of a way to restore his powers, at least some point before 17 months. Furthermore, what would be the point of getting Chad, unless Fullbringer powers weren't necessary? (Unless bringing in Chad is a way to manipulate Ichigo.)

Well this was an interesting chapter I have to say. Whoever said that their powers were close to Blade are dead on! I really wasn't expecting that XD! The fact that they're willing to give up their powers to Ichigo, so they can be human again intrigues me.

"Ichigo. You once had Hollow powers yourself. I'm sure you must understand our feelings to some degree."

Ichigo: >:/


OH BOY HERE WE GO

lol Orihime has new competition it seems.

Anyway this was an actually interesting chapter in what it can imply. So women who are attacked by hollows will have children with hollow-like abilities?

Interesting, all of this was pretty informative and I'm actually interested in what will happen.

And Chad helping Ichigo regain his powers? Awwww <3 He's such a good guy and can read his friend so well.

Okay, Riruka is officially on my "extremely glompable" list. :3

I love how she goes from "RIRUKA SAMA WILL DETERMINE YOUR WORTH, YOU LOWLY SERF, HMPFH" to "OMG HOTTIE ALERT O__O ASDFGKL ONE!1!".

Absolute, undiluted win.

And Chad, why so drop dead gorgeous? Kubo, stop making me lust after jailbait. Gah.

Oh yeah. Definitely got my Chad fix.

Mezzo, where are youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu?

_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on January 12th, 2011 09:12 pm (UTC)

Thank you Jackie! *glomps*

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG CHAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!!!!!

First thoughts.... I'm running through this chapter with fangirl fever so happy to have Bleach back. The color page is marvelous--I love the Pop Op Old Style Bleach but with that OMINOUS hue. The little blocks of color have that quantum weirdness and Ichigo's face looks so unsettled.

OMG, SO MUCH INFORMATION! CHAD IS A FULLBRINGER! Hollow rape! Ew, ew, omg, gross--Kubo, what are you doing to me! The concept of Shinigami and human hybrids versus Hollow and human hybrids and no more information on how the two are connected! But this is all so fascinating and I can't wait for more. This is all following in the theme of how beings are more alike than different and in keeping with what happened on the dome when Kubo made those parallels between Ulquiorra and Ichigo.

Now to see how Ichigo will get his powers back and just what it is that's involved.

Chad... OMG. *WEEPS* HE'S THE BEST. I've been waiting for this day for so long. The relationship between Chad and Ichigo has always been one of the most unexploited parts of Bleach--I love it so and Sensei promised that Chad would be featured in upcoming Bleach and now that day is here. Chad understands Ichigo, how unhappy he was because he couldn't protect (again, like with the dome and Ichigo's dismay over his Hollow side, there was that section of fandom that just WOULD. NOT. COULD. NOT. accept Ichigo's being unhappy as a human--how people can misread clues big as boulders is always beyond me). But there's still that ominous feeling--like okaaaaay, exactly what's involved in getting Ichigo's powers back. Something tells me this ain't gonna be easy.

And something's yet to be revealed about the Kurosaki family--okay, Kubo-sensei, you've got me right where you want me. SALIVATING FOR MORE STORY.

Riruki. OMG, I LOLed. She's adorable.

Raped? ...I thought they were just attacked normally and the hollow reistu/whatever got left behind/stuck in their bodies...

Riruka's tsundere blush totally warmed me up to her. (I feared that like Hyori, "pissed of" would be the only emotion she's capable of. Glad that I am wrong.) I'm surprised that KT adds a third girl that has the hots for Ichigo after such a long time.

I dunno if he planned it, but I like that the hollow masks got explained in this chapter fairly well.

Awwww Chad. I hope this doesn't mean that he'll lose his powers and therefore an active role in the story forever.

I'm also happy that the mystery of his hollow powers got resolved.

I'm with you on the conspiracy thing. I'm not really buying Ginjou's line, and I suspect there are Fullbringers -- possibly right in that room -- who don't want to lose their powers.

There are a lot of things about this chapter that just don't sit right with me.

Question: does anyone know what is in the bowl on the title page?

This Ginjou guy is weird about offering food and drink.

The stuff in the bowl looks creepy.

what's up with Ginjou having that shinigami badge when he was first introduced?

How about this: It was his dad's.

Also:
"You aren't the first one who was born from a human and a shinigami."

Can we now FINALLY lay to rest the whole 'EWWWWWW she's a shinigami and he's a human, they can't go on daaaaaaaaates' talking point as being completely and totally obliterated? COMPLETELY and TOTALLY OBLITERATED.

Thanks for sharing!
OMFG! I hope Ichigo recover his powers... lol Riruka- Sama, We know he is a hottie *perv*
sugary_nitemare on January 12th, 2011 09:43 pm (UTC)
I can't help but agree with Riruka, he is hot! Not even, and I won't get into details with that, BUT Ichigo is property of Kuchiki Rukia. And so, I would, and will NOT let her take him. He's too clueless anyways ;P.

Now I'm interested to see how this process works, you always learn something new in Bleach. And Chad... WHY?! Those powers make you the super strong macho Mexican character in Bleach, and you're the only one.

I do remember Chad struggling with his powers, he wanted to understand them... and now he's giving them up to help his friend. Oh, Chad, you are wonderful.
kurosaki_anne on January 13th, 2011 12:40 am (UTC)
waaah!!! love your image!!! T.T that ending made me cry!! T.T and of course nobody can touch ichigo but rukia!!!! I´m sure they are bound to realize their true feelings... someday.. in the far future T.T!! i WANT TO SEE RUKIA WITH ICHIGO NOW!!!! really!!! when will the two of them be together and happy again?? the ending was such a beautiful way to convey all their feelings for each other!!! Love when ichigo popped rukia´s forehead!!! and that blush and that smile!! smile not smirk as he always gives to everyone! SMILEEEE!!! that smile reminds me small ichigoo memories in the rain! when he had a true smile! rukia always gives him that comfort that´s why he can smile like this! but because she´s been gone for 17 months! of course ichigo hasn´t been the same... apart of his powers

I actually enjoyed the chapter! :D I love how we finally learned the reason why hollows have holes, I found that very fascinating. And I can't help but laugh how spot on I was about how the hollow traces get passed on! XDDD
I laughed so much at the part where, "HE'S HOT!!!!" ROFLMAO, now that was hilarious.

For some reason I don't usually get overly emotional reading new chapters, but when they said Chad would be willing to give up his own power to protect in order to restore Ichigo's, I totally burst into tears. His heart's so durn big if it was turned into a hollow mask, it would be terrifying.
