Bleach 445 is Out  
Bleach 445 is out.

It's Ichigo's Fullbring imitating his shinigami Bankai... or something. I just read what Kubo writes sometimes and go, "Ah, okay. Whatever you said." (For example, I still don't fully understand the origin of Fullbringers.) So Ichigo's Fullbring is clad-type, like Jackie's - results in powers that manifest themselves in clothing form. Or he's wrapped himself up in power, as Chad says.

Everyone's amazed at how quickly Ichigo's tapped into his Fullbring abilities.

Confirmed that Ichigo did not overhear Chad and Ginjou's conversation about Inoue from last week's chapter. (Yes, some people did speculate Ichigo had overheard it.) He only learns that Tsukishima was Inoue's attacker in this chapter.

Ichigo looks sad panda at realizing that he's been "protected." I love Chad, but the whole "OH CRAP, CAN'T LET ICHIGO REALIZE WE DIDN'T TELL HIM ABOUT TSUKISHIMA" move was lame. Do not approve. Then again, many of us are Not Impressed with the lack of nakama-ness lately among the nakama. Yes, Chad's just trying to protect Ichigo since he realizes Ichigo may not fully grasp his new Fullbring powers and is likely to be reckless in using them (which turns out to be mostly true), but it's not like he could seriously expect to keep Ichigo in the dark about an enemy who's shown up at their doorstep. Ginjou, OTOH, is oddly all "His powers are activated, just tell him" forthcoming for once.

Ichigo only gets into full-anger mode after confirming that Tsukishima attacked Inoue and Ishida. (Was SP's IshiIchi ED inspired by insider information on this chapter? :yell)

There's fighting, Ichigo using his newly gained powers, Tsukishima being mildly impressed, Tsukishima attacking the weakpoint of Ichigo's still immature Fullbring, Ichigo losing, Tsukishima looking almost offensively pretty.

And then Ginjou steps in. The fact that Ginjou could block Tsukishima's sword makes me wonder if Tsukishima needs to deliberately have in mind what he wants to cut for his sword to work. So if he's attacking Ichigo's Fullbring abilities, it wouldn't cut Ginjou's sword... but who knows.

Ginjou/Tsukishima stuff next week?

Reminder: This week is a double issue, so we won't have Bleach next week.

Ah, I'm disappointed.

Thanks as always for posting Jackie but...

first, this is Ichigo's fullbring not his true Shinigami powers--ah well... guess we have to wait some more.

second, from the spoilers I'd hoped we'd see Chad fight and nah, not really.

Ichigo charges Tsukishima but then peters out pretty fast and from the looks of things I'll bet Ginjou isn't going to fight Tsukishima either and I don't want to lay money on whether either one of them reveals anything about Tsukishima's powers when we get the next chapter... although maybe we'll find out a little bit more about the dynamics between the pair.

Ichigo has a grudge now--it's Bookman who bothered his nakama but will Tsukishima reveal something that will make him doubt Ramen Guy now?

Ichigo looks all blobby and funky. I want to see him in civilian clothes again please.

THIS! "Ichigo looks all blobby and funky. I want to see him in civilian clothes again please" and this "second, from the spoilers I'd hoped we'd see Chad fight and nah, not really."

Is Jackie bleeding on the floor?? o_O she looks badly injured and not just "tired". breaking the fish tank might've hurt her a lot.
I really wanted to see Chad fight more and not just destroy property T___T. It seems like the kid is the "rich" guy that pays for things.

Ichigo is obviously not up to par, even though he learnt pretty fast. Judging by Ichigo's sleeve, he burnt his civilian clothes up or something? He looks pretty ragged. It looks like his shirt is all damaged. I did suspected it was only his "fullbring", but his powers would come next, but once he has the "fullbringers" powers passed onto him? At least that is how I took what Ginjou said, if he was not lying, when he explained it.

Exciting chapter, but full of mystery again and not a lot of answers T__T. I don't think Ginjou will fight Tsuk. either. He will just wait for later on.

Sad at Ichigo finding out this way who hurt his nakama... He looked hurt that Chad kept it from him, even though he knows it was to protect him.
qwirky on April 20th, 2011 08:21 pm (UTC)
Yeah, she's bleeding. She'll be okay. She's a tough lady <333

Still not clear on how Ichigo's powers come back to him. But he'll get the other Fullbring powers after he gets his shinigami ones, I believe ._.

Sad!panda!Ichigo made me sad as well :( On one hand, it's a good learning experience for him. OTOH, it still sucks. Stop doing this crap, you kids.

my fullbring is better than yours... *yawn*
和山一朗: GrimmIchi tackleburn1ngcha0s on April 20th, 2011 07:29 pm (UTC)
So Ichigo's Fullbring looks pretty much the same as a shinigami attire. The kid always pressed on how he was a shinigami when someone brought it up so it shouldn't be a surprise his Fullbring ended up like his bankai, tightly surrounding him like Chad pointed out. Alright then. I like it, though; tells a lot about Ichigo and fits him, too.

Tsukishima on p.19 looks more hot than usual :3 Haha I'm so shallow The half-surprised expression makes him look, uh, not sweeter but, kind of softer, maybe?

I am finding it harder & harder to buy into this fullbring concept.
mistyowlmistyowl on April 20th, 2011 07:43 pm (UTC)
I still don't get why Ichigo has fullbring powers in the first place, and how mastering his fullbring powers will help him getting his shinigami powers back. It seems to me, that at this point, it doesn't matter if he gets his shinigami powers back, if his fullbring powers are soooo similar to his previous powers.

Expect Jin Kariya to come out any second now, the way this arc is going.

EDIT: Though I do like that the nakama are back, for now. I'm not -entirely- complaining ...

As long as that hot MILF Bount chick comes with him I'm OK with it. She was cool.

I thought Tsukishima seemed pretty gay for Ginjou in this chapter. The wistful look and way he said Ginjou's name at the end. At least, I think there'll be Tsukishima/Ginjou yaoi eventually. :3

It wasn't too bad of a chapter. I mean now Ichigo has experienced a weak point and learned that his powers are still unstable. I'm goign to guess that Tsukishima may retreat leaving out the fun fight between him and Ginjo. I'm going to also assume that the ruckus will also attract the community's attention, another thing that could force a halt to their fight.
Adam Eppadam_epp on April 20th, 2011 08:41 pm (UTC)
Pretty much what I expected from a chapter after last week. It's all right except that Ichigo's powers are total bullshit, and Chad's explanation about Ichigo's clothes (along with the flashback images) made me groan since it's so clear this new development was totally made up on the spot.

Then again, many of us are Not Impressed with the lack of nakama-ness lately among the nakama.

What do you mean "lately?" The group hasn't been good to one another for a long, long time. And Bleach regularly condemns teamwork, actually, with its strong emphasis on one-on-one battles.

Exactly, they've never worked well together.
miss_ragdollmiss_ragdoll on April 20th, 2011 08:53 pm (UTC)
Mmmm even not expecting a lot I get less than expected. I'll have to re read it later. For now we get some mild reaction, I don't know how to explain it. I see a very eager and angered Ichigo but then he's calm when overhears Chad about hiding Tsukishima's attacks from him. And... i don't know, it didn't convince me. Tsukishima even looked cool XD
I loved the part where Riruka comes again and pesters about what has happened XD so off topic XDD
and well... this: http://mangastream.com/read/bleach/89889984/11 I felt shivers down my spine XD dark Ichi is dark.

well... let's see next chapter. I can't get Fullbring, but looks like ichigo is somehow gifted: it's something that comes out from him naturally, being a shinigami, being a FB... I wonder if it is related somehow with the parental talk he hasn't had yet with his father :S
pogopogo2468 on April 20th, 2011 08:55 pm (UTC)
Man, Kubo is a huge tease.

Pretty underwhelming chapter after last week's. I was hoping Ichigo'd have his powers back, but, in the back of my mind, it seemed like it was too soon. I have to reread this chapter and previous chapters, again, to fully understand the FB's and how they work. And how Ichigo is gonna get his powers back from them.

Ichigo getting angry over when he found out who hurt his friends? Typical Ichigo behavior right there, lol.

I also liked his face when he realized his friends were trying to protect him. It was pretty sad. The guy's all about protecting. Being protected ain't on that agenda. And I get that the nakama want to protect each other, but, ugh, I hate all this secrecy. -_-

Ginjo/BookGuy next week? Hrmmm, I'm pretty sure BookGuy's gonna peace it. Hopefully we'll get more answers next week.
ichi_gaiden on April 20th, 2011 09:51 pm (UTC)
So the Dark Beat Chapter Name is a reference to Ichigo's intense attacks towards Tsukishima right?

Beat is defined as repeated vicious physical strikes.
redgreendressredgreendress on April 20th, 2011 10:13 pm (UTC)
Chad was so hurt when Ichigo started bullshitting him, you'd think if anyone would know how annoying it is to be overprotected, it would be him. Has Tsukishima made you forget the Golden Rule, Sado? Tsk, tsk. Abuelo would be most disappointed.

Hah, I knew Ichigo was a closeted power-hungry bloodthirsty maniac. Aizen must have seen that potential in him [/cracktheory]. Y'know, they do have cookies, Ichigo.

Is it wrong that I am totally bored by the Fullbringers? Ugh it seems like a good concept, but it's just boring me for some odd reason.
Phoenix Hawk's Deep Corefmphoenixhawk on April 21st, 2011 12:26 am (UTC)
No. I'm getting sick of it, too. Throwaway power people, I guess. Unless they really start to do some cool [Censored: Feces] then this will be a bad arc.

Man, and here I thought Chad was finally gonna fight. :/ Ichigo, must you always steal the limelight? D:

I'm not even gonna bother with his fullbring powers 'cause I'm just pretty lost in the concept. He was totally using shunpo right there, and IDK, I can't remember if somebody already explained the logic of that skill. Also, I was totally expecting a Getsuga to be thrown right there. Sooooo, did he get his Shinigami powers back or was his Fullbring powers simply taking the shape of the powers he was used to having?

Anyway, I think there's a minor typo on page 18:
"If I concentrate my attacks on your right arm, your RIGHT arm loses it's fullbring shroud."
Uh, Tsukishima, wasn't the exposed arm the left one? o.o

Also, my BL senses tingled in this chapter. Twice. |D
Super Nintendo Chalmersstrawberries_85 on April 21st, 2011 01:36 am (UTC)
I think it's his fullbring powers taking a similar shape to his shinigami powers.
