Chapter is up!  
http://mangastream.com/read/bleach/62806731/1



LOL Shishigawara: "Are you going number 2?"

Ichigo, you f**king idiot. You just broke your best friend's heart. AGAIN. When will you learn? Never? Thought so. Seriously, quit being such a brainless drama queen.

Ginjou vs. Tsukishima: Wow what a fierce-looking fight! But damn, Tsuki's legs are ridonkulously long. Like, no way can he possibly touch his toes without bending his knees.

Yukio steps in and kidnaps Ichigo! "Saves" him, both literally and gamer-like. Looking forward to seeing what the oddly-dressed little sprout can do in future chapters.

Reminder: No tweeting Kubo about this chapter/using art from it for about 10 days or so, or you will be forced to wear Princess Beatrice's hat in public every day for a week.

He and Orihime are both willing to sacrifice themselves to an extreme extent to "protect others". But it's a sort of mirror image.

Orihime denied herself any agency (by surrendering to Aizen) because she was told that otherwise people would be hurt because of her (yes, this was a lie, but Aizen is the master liar/manipulator here). Negative aspect.

Ichigo pushes himself over the edge and often makes matters worse (either by aggravating the situation or bringing out his worse side) in order to protect people (or, as has been pointed out above, because he has to be in control and be the one acting rather than the one acted upon). Positive aspect.

Rukia was also guilty of "sacrifice myself to protect others", but she seems to have mostly come to terms with the motivations behind it (Shiba Kaien, and death of same) and to be adopting a more adult, mature attitude: teach Orihime rather than either leave her or overprotect her, work with Renji, accept protection when appropriate.

Dude. That was an awesome fight. I love awesome fights. And I also really want to see what Yukio can do.

Even though it was between two characters we know next to nothing about, it was indeed an awesome fight. I just wish I knew who to root for, y'know?

"Ichigo, you f**king idiot. You just broke your best friend's heart. AGAIN"

SECONDED. But it understandable though. Since Ishigo always has the hero complex, I-don't-want-to-be-the-one-who-left-behind kind of people. No matter how this action always make trouble for him and his nakama *sigh*

But drama aside, I love this chapter. Finally fighting and definitely progrssing plot *yay*

What this chapter emphasized to me is that Ichigo seems far more concerned about avenging the attacks on his nakama than about his nakama themselves.

I really hope this is a character flaw that Kubo intends to resolve -- or at least have Ichigo realize and work on -- than just a "charming personality trait" for our thick-headed hero. Ichigo may act first and think later but he's not stupid. I wish to hell he'd stop acting like it. :P

I am pretty much distracted by your icon XD Oh lord is that Princess Beatrice's ridiculous wedding hat.

I'm excited to see more of Yukio's powers. And ohhh Ichigo -_-;

hm, Yukio reminds me a tad bit of Hitsugaya. I get the feeling that he too is a kid-genius. Daaaaaamn, I miss my shinigamis ;__; Most of all Rukia of course, but the whole Gotei 13 was just so epic.
I guess what bothered me most about the Arrancars was their lack of relationships among each other. Remember the deep bond between Rangiku and Gin? The fun interactions between Hitsugaya and Rangiku? The somewhat Hitsugaya-Hinamori-Aizen-triangle? Rukia's relationship with Kaien, Renji and Byakuya? The friendship of Ikkaku and Yumichika? Ken-chan and Yachiru? All their brilliantly plotted pasts? I long for in-depth characters, whose backstory will make you tear up. All those new characters feel so shallow to me. I loved Bleach for its complex bonds and characters. I like Tsukishima the most of the new characters. He's the center of all the fullbringers' backstory with the way he betrayed them.

And Ichigo... I really don't like how he acts right now -sighs-
hinodehhinodeh on May 1st, 2011 01:36 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't say that the arrancar had absolutely no relationships with each other. But I can agree that what was there was not as developed if you take it all together as it is with the shinigami. Still, I dread more shinigami times because the ast time they got extended screentime we had the borefest named Fake Karakura plus Deicide.

Oh well, but I still like th arrancar more, anyway. :P

Ichigo, Ichigo, Ichigo.

Your desperation to battle Tsukishima, your ignorance of Chad's concern for you (aggressiveness too!), your belief that you're already powerful enough (you even told Ginjou to back off)--Oh, just stop it. Taste your own medicine now that you're the one being protected.

Seriously, I don't know. His ever-persistent attitude in this chapter just ticked me off for some reason. I understand that Tsukishima is his nakamas' attacker, that he's finally able to actually do something (power-wise) after 17 months, and how he lives to protect, etc. But dude, Ichigo: take a chill pill.

On the otherhand, I'm curious as to Yukio's powers, as well as what he's going to do with Ichigo.
The battle between Tsukishima and Ginjou doesn't really peak my interest right now. Sorry.

oh gallant piglet,: soccerballaizome on May 1st, 2011 02:05 am (UTC)
"But dude, Ichigo: take a chill pill."

Boy needs to take a whole damned bottle of them right now.

Hopefully the little squirt with the game console will beat some sense into him. (Oh who am I kidding? That will never happen.)

Nice icon ;3

For real, Ichigo, what are you trying to do/ to prove? are you that desesperate and scared of being protected and not being able to protect? is the death of your mother that heavy for you?

Man sometimes is painful to see Ichigo and as always he says thinks that hurts others feelings for his stupid rage, sometimes, really sometimes I would like that Ichigo were a good observer of himself and realized how stupid he is acting.

I feel bad for Chad, who is trying to help and I know it's Rukia who is going to beat the shit of sense into him but I would love to see another of his friends doing it (I would love if Ishida could do that, his lack of diplomacy and brutal honesty it's perfect for that)

Ichigo's expression was really disturbing, he really loves to be in control to that point that is scary.
lalalal(:occhic562 on May 1st, 2011 03:27 am (UTC)
Ichigo's just so fucking childish with his whole I-don't-need-your-help-I-ride-solo thing going on, I swear. The boy needs to learn how to depend on others.

I've been wondering myself how exactly Rukia would handle this Ichigo. But yeah, I agree, I would like to see others whip him into shape as well; the whole nakama bond is so nonexistant right now.

Yeah, thats it: Ichigo's behavior straight out disturbed me.

The fighting this chapter was pretty damn good--if Kubo keeps this up, Bleach might jump in the polls. I'm liking the fullbring energy that comes off every attack, since it adds to the motions.

I'm curious to know what Tsukishima means by 'tainting' Ichigo. I wonder if he's already done something like that to Ishida and Orihime. Nice to have some more confirmation that Tsukishima knows about Ichigo's powers before he lost them, but it just raises another question as to where he and the other fullbringers get their information.

Ichigo's protective issues aren't really bothering me per usual. He's always had this problem, and unfortunately, I don't think he'll get over it any time soon. His slow ability to grasp that he's in his real body and has greater limits than before is more irksome. He isn't fighting smart like he usually does. His emotions are running him, you can see it in his eyes.
