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

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
