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

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.
