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

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.

What hollow that may have attacked her mother? The Hollow caused the alcoholism and whoring? I'm really confused...

Although the hairpins cue for FULLBRING is a biggie... and for Ishida's bracelet too.
Running on Coffee and Schadenfreudearcadiasilver on February 2nd, 2011 09:58 pm (UTC)
I was just following the logic that Fullbringer = mother attacked by hollow.

I'm hesitant to say that Ishida might be a Fullbringer, but considering that the Quincy dedicated themselves to battling hollows, the ultimate irony might come from the fact that they needed hollows to continue the family line, so to speak.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on February 2nd, 2011 10:07 pm (UTC)

Needing Hollow to continue the family line? Whack me over the head with a fanfic--that all makes crazy wonderful sense! XD I'd love to see the nakama involved in the storyline like that, but I still expecting only Chad and Ichigo to be involved in this Fullbringer business. *starting to get impatient* Okay, now I want to see Orihime and Ishida.

It would be Kubo-level delicious irony. And it would explain why the Quincy seem to be dying out. Might have a link to what happened to Ishida's mother and why Ryuuken rejected being a Quincy.

I'm totally into the idea of the Quincy needing hollows like that, except that the reiatsu fond on Ishida's wounds was so different/unknown, Ryuuken barely recognize it as reiatsu. 'Course, the attacker could've been something besides even a Fullbring user, but -- same glow! So I doubt it...?

(That said, it was probably also different from the reiatsu felt up to this point from Chad and Orihime, so maybe they can all use Fullbring and it's somewhat separate. At least, I'd expect that to be true of Quincy stuff).

Ugh, lack of an edit button and low blood sugar is making me not pay attention.

I was just posturing that an attack from a hollow - essentially an invisible force that you can't prove - would likely have a pretty negative effect on someone's life. Who knows what the results were on Orihime's mother, mental and emotional or otherwise.

But does that explain her crazy-ass resurrection power?

Running on Coffee and Schadenfreudearcadiasilver on February 2nd, 2011 10:00 pm (UTC)
Who knows? Riruka's powers are essentially spatial manipulation and transmutation (she put the soul of a gangster into a stuffed animal after all). So I guess temporal manipulation isnt too much of a stretch.
hinodehhinodeh on February 2nd, 2011 10:05 pm (UTC)
Ah yes, you're right. If Riruka's Fullbring power can transplant a soul, I suppose the resurrection makes a bit more sense. On the other hand, it is connected to an object (putting the soul into the pig), whereas with the healing and reviving, that kind of connection is harder to make? (Where does the damage go? How can mere hairpins turn back time? etc.)

I'm not fully convinced, I suppose.
Running on Coffee and Schadenfreudearcadiasilver on February 2nd, 2011 10:18 pm (UTC)
As Riruka described it, its not the object itself that has the power, but the object acts as a focus for the power. So its not the hairpins that are important, they're just a vessel for Orihime's time-warping ability. And as I'm kind of extrapolating from Riruka's little explanation, the nature of the power also has to do with the personality of the person. Riruka is girly and loves cute and awesome things, so that kind of manifests in the way her spatial manipulation power works. Orihime's reality rejection could be linked to her indulgence in fantasy.
hinodehhinodeh on February 2nd, 2011 10:21 pm (UTC)
Hm, okay, I can buy this.

So basically Orihime's mind is so unique that it manifests a particularly exotic power, and the hairpins have nothing to with the shape of said power because they're ultimately only a tool for the focus?

Also, if you think about it Inoue's power is basically this saying:

"I reject your reality and substitute my own!"

Inoue has epic denial powers.

It might not have to be her mother, perhaps being attacked by her brother represents it being "close" enough to become a Fullbringer.

It would be interesting. I'm just curious, whatever happened to the idea that Ichigo's reiatsu is what got Inoue and Chad to develop powers? Is that still a factor, or were they always Fullbringers, or did it make them Fullbringers? It would be interesting if it just helped things along, otherwise wouldn't EVERYONE around him have powers?
Running on Coffee and Schadenfreudearcadiasilver on February 2nd, 2011 10:08 pm (UTC)
The whole "Ichigo's powers gave Chad and Inoue theirs" was a red herring. It was the Hobaby inside Rukia that responded to their wishes to not be powerless and activated latent abilities.
