Bleach 436 is Out  
Bleach 436 is out at Mangastream.

REMINDER: Do not tweet to Kubo about this chapter until Monday.





Giriko's Fullbring is super creepy. I guess "deadline" in this case is literal.

Awww. Chad's so sweet. More Chad/Ichigo BFFness in this chapter. <3333

Chad attributes his Fullbring activation to "pride." However, he then says that his grandfather/abuelo was in his heart at that time, and his Fullbring reacted to his "heart." I'm really glad Kubo highlighted again just how important Chad's abuelo was to him - his abuelo was the source of his pride in his heritage, his skin color, and himself.

Ichigo tries to think of one particular moment in which he was proud to be a shinigami - flashing back to numerous past events, represented by old panels - and is overwhelmed by the number of examples. At the end, he has a memory of Rukia, disappearing and smiling bittersweetly (and, noticeably, in a new drawing, a different version of the parting scene from chapter 423), and his badge appears to respond, forming a shape similar to his Tensa Zangetsu guard. Does that mean his badge reacted to Rukia in his heart? I suppose some might argue that it was all of his nakama, but I think Rukia was the trigger or what pushed him over.

IIRC, someone on 4chan commented that in each of the flashbacks Ichigo has, Rukia was also present, which is an interesting point.




With all that said.... RUKIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH~! *clings to beautiful Rukia* ;___;

P.S. This is the WSJ chapter that'll be officially released in Japan on Valentine's Day, so Happy Valentine's Day in advance! <3333

Note that Kubo just copy pastah'd his old Orihime drawings, and his old Uryu, and all the old scenes. He redrew Rukia. Right, and it's not an important scene...

I'm happy we got to see such a beautiful Rukia lying in Ichigo's memory ;w; /needs to colour nao

RUKIAAAAA T_T Such a beautiful panel.

I do think Rukia is the trigger. It's like all those moments were building up to the badge doing something, but it was remembering Rukia after MONTHS of being in denial and trying not to think about her, that triggered it. She was present during all those moments and without her, those moments would not have been possible.

New HUGE panel + angtsy Ichiface + power up .... yea, that's definitely not anything important....

Also Chad gets the award for best BFF ever! So much love for him and am so glad he has such a presence in the manga. I love it when it talks <333

Butler-san is creepy and his powers are something that my Theory and Methodology professor would've given a leg to have.

And there's something that makes me feel really warm and fuzzy to have Chad declare that he's so proud of his ethnicity because of his abuelo. ♥

"And there's something that makes me feel really warm and fuzzy to have Chad declare that he's so proud of his ethnicity because of his abuelo."

Me too T___T . He loves his identity and where he comes from. His abuelo was an awesome man. I'm loving Chad's coaching too. He is not a talkative man, but when his best friend needs him he is there for him %100. Definitely the typical gentle latino with the heart of gold <333 . Viva mi gente ^_^
All the fullbringers so far, seem to have very scary powers :(

I am looking forward to Ichigo's fullbring being totally badass . . .

Unf, SEXY VALENTINE'S.
Call me a perv, but, this was my first thought after seeing the spoilers pics.

The last two pages totally look like Ichigo is fapping to Rukia.

His face has "I'm comi---unghhhhhh" written all over it. And the pose, LOL, the pose.

OK, I'm only halfway through reading this chapter, but I had to stop and say one thing:

CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADDDDDD! OMG you are SO hot and SUCH a good friend! My god, he's sooooo cool I just wanna tackle him and rub my face on his chest like he was CATNIP. /crazy fangirl attack.

Ahem. Yes. Well, back to reading now. *slinks off*

I don't know if all those other times are involved or not on his fullbringing activation, he seemed to have gone through the most significant moments quickly in his head, not dwelling on them a whole lot, but Rukia was the clearest at the end, the one he focused on and was definitely the catalyst. She is in Ichigo's heart, like Chad's abuelo is in his. So touching ;___;

Riruka was careless and I find that guy in the bar, a bit of a creep and kinda cold... I guess to be expected of someone who is tide up with time frames??? Really stiff and square. Chad is stellar once again in this moment of need (Mezzo where are you, you sure will enjoy these chapters with Chad a lot and I know how much you were waiting for him), where Ichigo gets saved by his heart to heart coaching.

Ichi looks so vulnerable and fragile in that little box T____T. I can't wait for next week's chappy. I'm curious how is Ichigo's power going to work for him.
mrdracospirit on February 10th, 2011 10:06 am (UTC)
I sometimes wonder if Rukia's banki going to end up being some kind of power boaster... for others :) She always seems to be the key to Ichigo finding the strength to move forwards. :)
chalitychality on February 10th, 2011 04:43 am (UTC)
Wow, Giriko's power is creepy. I'm still wondering why Riruka would want to ditch her powers, but assuming that Ginjou and wasn't feeding Ichigo a line about the Fullbringers' motives, I can see why Giriko might want to lose that ability.

Chad's power being drawn from his skin rather than his coin was a surprise. His pride in his heritage felt deep and authentic even in the few lines of text there were. I hope he keeps developing and gets a real chance to shine in this arc. It's long overdue.

The second to last page was like the excitement of a sudden snowday distilled onto paper. As always, Rukia is the rotator that drives Ichigo foward.
(Anonymous) on February 10th, 2011 07:40 am (UTC)
Maybe Chad's Abuelo was also a Fullbringer and his Fullbring was that coin?
eframepiloteframepilot on February 10th, 2011 04:47 am (UTC)
Chad is wrong - it's not "Pride", but "Love"
Like Riruka said, Fullbring is an ability of "Love". Chad awoke his power because of the love his grandfather left with him in his (lol) heart.

This has an obvious bearing on what's going on with Ichigo in the final pages. Note that when he thinks of his pride as a Shinigami, he avoids thinking of Rukia at all - even when he remembered her rescue! She was present at all of those moments! Yet, when Ichigo remembered Rukia at a moment when he had already lost his Shinigami powers and wasn't feeling any pride at all - activation.

So yeah, Ichigo loves Rukia and hopefully he'll figure this out by the end of next chapter in time to avoid a fiery doom.
