Chapter 449 is out!  
Get it here at Mangastream!

EDIT:

Because the Mangastream translation has more holes than a Congressional bill, please read a more accurate translation here at Mangareader!


Holy shit, Orihime just put Ginjou in his place.

Best "Shut Up, Hannibal" moment in the manga to date.

Im hoping this is the moment of the arc where Ichigo gets it into his thick skull that his nakama are there to support him, not to stand behind him and tremble and be protected.

Also: UNMASKED COVER WILL BE ULQUIORRA! Where's Ballad to fanboy this stuff?

Arg. Seriously, WHY THE DOUBLE TEASE?!?

But putting reiatsu in a jar...if it's Rukia, will they use it to track Ichigo? Or jumpstart his powers again?

Think we should have expected TK not to reveal the Mistery Foot so soon. He really enjoys building up suspense.

Following the latest scripts however, I think its definitely not Rukia. The "Person" sounds blunt, leads me to assume even more than before, its a new, Male Character.

What are those three doing however? :O

I'm betting Renji... Or Hitsugaya without his haori.

OMG that advert page! Now I am totally sure that UnMasked will have Ulquiorra's backstory. Those pages are so.... hnnnngh.
I came when I saw them. Also, love his cover. He looks so severe, as usual. <3
Beca: bulletproofmagicbulletgirl on May 25th, 2011 09:07 pm (UTC)
Agreed on the "Fuck yeah! Orihime!" moment. For that alone I'm pretty pleased with this weeks chapter.
darksloverdarkslover on May 25th, 2011 09:07 pm (UTC)
So, it wasn't the door in the pages shown. And the shinigami is not leaving... boy, weren't the spoilers misleading.

The kid's ability is SO useful. It builds training rooms with ideal environment. Although we got what we thought: Chad WAS attacked by Tsukishima. And it had the same effects like with Orihime. Yet, Ishida was chopped? Hmm...

Exploding shield? Looks like it's the two "rejections" combined. However, wouldn't that mean that we won't be seeing Tsubaki? :(

Here's the question? If Ginjou knew about Orihime's powers from Chad, wouldn't that mean that her power-up was unknown even to him (Chad)? Because, if what she said was true (and I have no doubt it was), then Chad didn't inform the Fullbringers? Unless Ginjou knows about Orihime's powers from ANOTHER source? *hint FB being suspicious*

FINALLY, the nakama start seeing each other in the eye. Hallelujah and all that jazz.

I wonder what's with that Fast Forward button... hmmm...
qwirky on May 25th, 2011 09:28 pm (UTC)
However, wouldn't that mean that we won't be seeing Tsubaki? :(
Not on his own if she uses that power, since Tsubaki is incorporated into the new shield. But she could always take the shield down and use Tsubaki. It's nice that she IS actually using Tsubaki now in some way, even if it's more of a passive offense. Others have said this new power is fitting to Orihime's character, and I agree with that, but I can't help but wonder if Kubo will have her fire Tsubaki again on his own like he did early on in the series.

Who's to say that Ginjou learned about Inoue's powers from Chad? After all, Ginjou basically stalked Ichigo. He had to have known about Ichigo's friends, hence how he approached Chad.

Standing ovation for Orihime's new power!! I love seeing badass!Orihime, I feel like she's come so far~ :Db

Gaaah, I knew Kubo-sensei wasn't going to show us the mysterious shinigami. Still crossing my fingers for Rukia and if it is her I'm hoping for a nice dramatic entrance :)
Styx667styx_uchiha on May 25th, 2011 09:13 pm (UTC)
... It happened, it really happened, Orihime became useful in battle and kicked some ass @_@
What's more : a tease on a possible upcoming Ulquiorra's backstory (though the art is most likely no Kubo's) and the cover of unmasked in the same day *_* It's Christmas, it has to be *_*

One advert stated specifically that KT drew the Ulquiorra story.

I've been through the wringer with this chapter and with fandom losing its freaking MIND today.

First, LOVE for Orihime development. She proved herself. She stood up to her vow--defending Ichigo and defending herself. CHECK. The speech about her and Chad wanting to fight for Ichigo almost made me cry--that panel of her little foot touched me...

as for the other feet. The spread was so unimpressive and I felt like Kubo was mocking us with the feet. It has to be Rukia of course--who else would get a color page or such special treatment.

The teasing isn't funny, Sensei. It's not. It's beyond the point where the tickling is fun--this is the part where the kid being tickled bursts into tears. It's not funny anymore. Fandom is really freaking out. Then again, maybe I'm just more in tune with the more excitable parts of fandom. The rest seem to be bored with Bleach so there's no middle ground, I think...

CHAD, DAMN YOU. YOU GOT STABBED JUST LIKE ORIHIME BEFORE THE GAME. AND NOW YOU'RE IN THE GAME WITH ICHIGO TOO. YOU, WHO TRAINED AS ORIHIME DID ALL FOR THE SAKE OF ICHIGO? I HAVE A VERY BAAAAD FEELING ABOUT THIS.

Oh watch everything go to hell next chapter. D:

Orihime, you used Tsubaki. It was a very cool new power upgrade. I'm so happy for you.

Yes Guildy the translation sucks balls because the last panel was "..... un" not "no problem" and Orihime looked perplexed about something and everyone was arguing about it, lol, but MS decided to go with yeehah everything's fine not the more challenging interpretation....

Urahara making some sort of glowing soup with some Shinigami's reiatsu--has to be Rukia's... what could it be, what could it beeeeeee?
they're all just third eye blind lyricslackasexical on May 25th, 2011 09:27 pm (UTC)
Orihime, you used Tsubaki.

Wait, did she say the new move included Tsubaki? Or do we assume so because it can shoot the attack back at the enemy?

oh gallant piglet,: orihimeaizome on May 25th, 2011 09:16 pm (UTC)
I lol'd IRL when Orihime told him off. So much for her being a "pacifist" eh? Someone who is completely ok with "just healing and shielding" wouldn't have an ability that REBOUNDS an attack back on to the attacker! I'm interested in knowing how it works, since it's using 4 flowers. Maybe Tsubaki's found a different way to fight than just all by himself?

Poor Chad though. All alone. Someone needs to train WITH him. *looks around for the newly-healed Quincy*
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on May 25th, 2011 09:20 pm (UTC)

Looks like Ishida didn't get the same kind of weird attack from Tsukishima that Orihime and Chad did...

This makes me think that Orihime and Chad may be a liability to Ichigo in that game--or Kubo wants us to FEAR THAT (I do)... and Ishida... well, I still think Ishida is going to go after Tsukishima...

Holy crap Orihime's balls are now bigger than her boobs. >_>; Good for her!

Frustrated we weren't shown who the mystery character is, but at least it's something to look forward to for next week. This has been the first aspect of Bleach in the past ~10 chapters that's actually made me excited for next week's chapter.

andrew_jpandrew_jp on May 25th, 2011 09:22 pm (UTC)
Wouldn't have guessed Riruka's hair color or Jackie's skin color from the black and white drawings.

When this gets animated Studio Pierrot is either going to have to make some alteration to prevent the voice from giving away the mystery shinigami's identity or just reveal it early.

I've said before that Orihime becoming a better fighter would mean more than just improving Tsubaki, and Kubo seems to agree. Now let's see if she starts using Souten Kisshun to reject enemy attacks or weapons out of existence before they can even land a blow.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on May 25th, 2011 09:43 pm (UTC)

We've seen Riruka's hair already. Weird that some fanartists called it. I didn't guess Jackie to be black but some people did. SHE. IS. SO. HOT.

But the spread isn't. I'm disappointed. I usually love Kubo's spreads. This one and the sketchy feet just doesn't move me at all.... the expressions of the fullbringers don't even look that interesting....

The chapter had better faces. Hope he was working hard on the Ulquiorra chapter. XD
