This chapter is very hilarious, it is amazing how pressure or tension in several chapter replaced by a whole comedic chapter. And, OMG, Ichigo is smile! His smile is back!!!! It has been so long I saw his smile like that, very kind. I'm very happy, very happy....
Thank you, Kubo. He just has to struggle to get his powers back. Which one do you prefer, Ichigo? Fullbring or shinigami one? LOL

This was an alright chapter for me. More Chad is always a good thing, but I hope we don't get like 10+ chap of Ichigo fighting a yakuza pig doll.

As a couple of people have already mentioned, it seems like Riruka doesn't exactly hate her ability. So there definitely has to be much more to it. I guess I just don't buy everyone willing to give up their powers just like that.

Did anyone else notice Riruka's nail decor (pg.7)? I have to admit while I'm not the biggest fan of hers, she was kinda cute in this ch.

OMG CHAD IS SO CUUUUUUUUTE!!!!! *hearts & sparkles*

I can't believe it! I can't! Chad actually yelled! I can't remember him ever yelling. That was fantastic!

My gosh, I lol'd my way through that whole chapter, but sexy Chad being all concerned about Ichigo was the best part. (The second best part was the look on Ginjou's face when Riruka insulted him. And I really hope someone will color that panel of Riruka shrieking with delight as she's "smothered" by all those cute animals. I totally need an icon like that.) XD

Like others, I'd like to see the story pick up the pace, but this was still a very enjoyable chapter.

Nature of loooove

Ah I just posted this at BA and thought it might open up a discussion better here, lol:

The "love" theme in this recent crackish chapter amused me. I had to laugh at how Riruka said she LOVED her things and wanted to be crushed to death by them. Ichigo realized that he didn't really "love" the object that he could channel his power through, that he was merely "fond" of it. The semantics was interesting.

The chapter came out at the same time Kubo-sensei retweeted a long question/answer tweet. A six-year-old girl was asking how she should confess by telephone and was told that she should know what love is before she confesses. Her love was compared to the feeling she has toward favorite foods or the feeling of sunshine.

Anyway, I do think it's interesting that Sensei seems to be considering the nature of love lately. :fu

Re: Nature of loooove

What does "crack" mean? and what does this!mean?

example: Gaga!Aizen
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on February 3rd, 2011 11:57 am (UTC)

Crack is something wacky, as if it was written while smoking crack. the ! comes from Japanese advertisements: drama!murder!duck soup! Fandom picked it up to use a link instead of - between an adjective and a noun. So instead of the boring Gaga-Aizen, we have the hyperbolic Japanese advertisement Gaga!Aizen.

Some thoughts:

-LOL nerdy Riruka wanting to die crushed under the stuff she loves
-LOL at Yakuza teddybear (pig?)
-LOL at the Riruka eating cake and tea

This whole chapter was hilarious. It's just difficult to enjoy the whole story when there's only one chapter per week. It's like, you forgot the atmosphere where the next chapter left off, etc. Hard to explain. I wonder if Kubo can carry on despite of this or does he often forget what was the atmosphere/theme he tended on last week? (provocative, I know)

Anyways, I'm so glad that he took out the badge issue again. NOW it's interesting again.

Kinda a lurker here, but I couldn't resist bringing this up. When Riruka is yelling at Ichigo on pg 4, what she's saying seems very similar to Rukia's "Man in my Heart" speech.And from the looks of Ichigo in that one panel, I'd say that came to his mind as well. Just a simple observation : )
