Bleach 435 is Out  
Bleach 435 is out at MangaStream.

REMINDER: Don't tweet to Kubo about the chapter until Monday. Ditto on your tweets to him using avatars from the chapter.





The sheer amount of hilarious crack in this chapter is amazing. Of course most of it's due to Riruka being Riruka (Fullbring's an ability of "love", telling Ichigo just to use Fullbring but not giving him any hints on how to do so because she doesn't know anything about that, insulting Ginjou, stuffing herself with food out of tsundere worry, etc.), as well as Mr. Pork with the yakuza guy Riruka kidnapped inside it...

Ichigo always carries about his shinigami representative badge, so he realizes that's the key to unlocking his Fullbring. Guess he's "fond" of or "in love with" his badge. XD And Chad, being Ichigo's BFF, realizes Ichigo should use it too. Chad+Ichigo <3333 Glad to know someone is concerned for Ichigo. ;__;

And, uh, Ichigo can use Fullbring? Does that mean he inherited the ability to use Fullbring via Isshin or Masaki? And if it's through Isshin, does that mean all shinigami have the ability to use Fullbring? Or just the offspring of a shinigami who was attacked by a hollow? Or just shinigami/human offspring? Or is something else giving him this ability? >_>

Mad Beast Mode. More crack next week, looks like. <3

Ah, I enjoyed the Riruka hijinks, however, this chapter, this chapter...

I don't mind crack, but this once again shows impressively how slow KT's pacing is. Sigh.
And I am one of the people who so far enjoy this arc.

As to Ichigo using Fullbring, I don't remember anything in canon that would make one of these theories more likely than the others. But for now I'll bet on it being due to his heritage.

I think Riruka is just saying that they, as in the Xcution Fullbringers, have had their powers since birth, not that Ichigo has. Ichigo didnt acquire his hollow powers till the Shattered Shaft.

Ichigo.

Would it KILL you if for once in your life you just admitted to liking something? It's okay to admit to being so fond of your shinigami badge that you fucking carry it everywhere.

There is a limit to how tsundere people should be. You hit it roughly 10 chapters ago.

*flails*

I love this. I LOVE THE COMEDY. I love the training arc comedy. I loved the BADGE OF GREAT JUSTICE and Hiyori's walker too... but this tops them. Gah, Riruka wanting to be crushed by the things she loves--THAT'S SO FUNNY and girlish! <3 I too have this unholy need to be swamped by minatures. <.<

Ichigo and Chad love story continues <3

THE SHINIGAMI BADGE IN HIS BACK POCKET <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Did Chad say there was something else he might be carrying? But Ichigo did think of the badge, didn't he? Why didn't he use it right away? Or until Chad encouraged him? Ah, the power of friendship! <3

Random thought: Inoue is a Fullbring. HAIIIIRRRRPIIIIIIINS that transform into fairies.

Sounds like Fullbring to me.
Running on Coffee and Schadenfreude: [Bleach] Heterosexual anal in my fandom?arcadiasilver on February 2nd, 2011 09:51 pm (UTC)
That was my thought too, this pretty much confirms that Inoue is a fullbringer. And it also makes me wonder if the hollow that may have attacked her mother was the genesis of the problems in her family.

cba to write something new, so I'll just c/p my post on BA:

I enjoyed this chapter more than I expected. Damn, it was interesting! I adore Riruka more and more. She's a mix of Matsumoto, Hiyori and good old Orihime, back in the golden days. <3

The "fullbring" power seems to be tied to emotions and feelings and for Ichigo, someone who conceals his emotions, but feels them deeply nonetheless, this power seems to be both a blessing and a curse. I already dig of what his shinigami badge will become.

Also, this is also another revelation of Ichigo's depressed state: The thing he cherishes the most, is his symbol of his shinigami powers. Ichigo is simply not going to move on to a human life and be happy about it. It also speaks volumes about the measure of the sacrifice he did when he gave up his powers in the battle with Aizen.

I loved how Chad cared about Ichigo's well-being and also how well he understands him: "We are thinking the same way!" says Ichigo and I smiled at that. For a guy who was neglected so much in the previous arc. Chad is shining with his understanding of Ichigo's mind and inner thoughts. Long story short, he IS Ichigo's best friend.

Better have him at the centre of this arc, Kubo. I demand it!!!! >(

Last but not least, I loved the cliffhanger. It's so Kubo-like, to take a humorous early line "Mr. Pig" and turn it on its head, giving it a frightening tone in the end. Stuffed pig or not, the last panel got me wide-eyed. O_O
nyxviolanyxviola on February 2nd, 2011 09:54 pm (UTC)
I'm still enjoying the crack. Riruka is growing on me because she's such a nerd. XD (This does not mean that I'm going to ship her with Ichigo BTW.)
Is Ichigo wearing black underwear?
Mr. Pig...OMG, that's cracktastic!
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on February 2nd, 2011 09:55 pm (UTC)

I really tried to look at Ichigo's underwear. I can't really tell. XD

Poor Mr. Pork... haha

Well I am glad Ichigo is "fond" of his Shinigami badge. It really does represent his Shinigami power and this just proves he wants his power back even more. So does that when when this arc started, Ichigo was lying in his inner-thought? How he enjoys his current life-style and how he does not miss Rukia XD It takes true talent to lie in your inner-thought LOL ubut then again, this dude is very stubborn

Riruka is so pretty and cute! I love her more and more now! Her tsundere personality, he love towads sweets, her love towards cute plushies, she is adorable!
Katelynanimefantasyfan on February 2nd, 2011 10:54 pm (UTC)
I got the sense of heavy, HEAVY denial from his narrative. Trying to convince himself that this was great and what he'd secretly wanted all along.

In other words, a big fat tsundere lie.
mikados on February 2nd, 2011 10:26 pm (UTC)
I can't figure why Riruka would get rid of her fullbring power. She really enjoys the things she can do, not cursing it. We need more backstory on the Fullbringers.

Chad understand Ichigo so well <3 And Ichigo loves his shinigami badge, awww.

This is what I noticed. I'm thinking there's more to their story than what they said. I should be used to that by now.

From the spoiler pics, I was expecting this chapter to be pure crack-- which it was XD. But I loved Chad barging ahead to help Ichigo and their mutual understanding of what's dearest to him. It's about damn time that Kubo finally highlighted their friendship again and I really really hope this trend continues. Now if only Orihime could get some proper character development...

Riruka is batshit insane, which I love. Her method of training Ichigo is tough love indeed, and her sink-or-swim attitude reminds me a bit of Rukia's whenever he's in a mental funk. Also, Ichigo has to be the most asexual shounen protagonist I've ever seen. I realize that his mind is currently preoccupied running for his life from Mr. Pig, but that boy continues to amaze me at how dense he is when it comes to girls. How much more of a hint does he need when Riruka pretty much straight-out declares that she's very, very fond of him? It will be a very interesting day when/if he finally realizes the massive following he's accumulated over the years XD.

Ichigo is very good at not giving a single fuck towards females he is not inclined to, so to speak.

Comedy or crack it might have been, but it did precious little for me. Maybe because I still do not appreciate Riruka.
On the other hand, Ichigo had a few adorable moments (Chad one great) and I find the fact that his shinigami badge means so much to him very moving.

Derp!Face Ichigo on page 1. That was all I needed, really. But LMAO Riruka pigging out while Ichigo is getting chased by "Mr. Pork". And glad to see some more frames of Jackie, she's much prettier than in that very first shot several chapters ago. She and Chad would make beautiful babies.

Poor Chad, reduced to errand-boy. I wonder if that's been his "job" all this time? But so happy to see even more evidence that he still knows Ichigo better than any of his Karakura friends *fanboys*

Haha! I don't know if you can really call this 'Bleach'. Ichi's not fighting a strong blood-thirsty enemy right now, he's just fighting a giant pig stuffed animal named "Mr. Pork". Nothing weird at all ;P.

This chapter left me with a bunch of questions in my head. So Ichigo can use full bring? What's with the timer?

Every time I see 'Riruka', I keep thinking 'Rukia' for some reason. I really miss her... Bleach just isn't complete without her. T^T

I don't think Ichigo using Fullbring is some sort of hint at his parents being attacked by Hollows -- I mean, he says it himself how she's being vague and how is he supposed to do that, like it's just another day.
