New Musical to celebrate 10th anniversary and IR Bond  

Just saw this at burimyu  here and Annie reported it here. The director of the new Bleach musical is saying that the show will celebrate the 10th anniversary and the IchiRuki bond. That's one way to draw the crowds. Well, the previous musicals were heavy on the IchiRuki too.

I miss Rukia in the manga so much I can't even worry about Ishida's next appearance that much so you know THAT'S BAD. Drew Rukias all weekend and this one came out the best so I colored it. Please don't look at the hands... eh I know I just made you look. Anyway, I'm sure Sensei's next drawing of her will be gorgeous--his last one was unusually lovely, and I've really had it with the long long wait. I've even quit wondering if her hair will be different when we see her. I don't care if she's bald. (Renji should've been able to purchase new sunglasses if he's budgeted his salary well in 17 months but I'll bet he'll smash them the next time we see him).

Girly vest? That's a red version of Ichigo's Bankai. In other words, that is what it would look like if it were coloured red.

Look at the blade he's holding too; that's a red Tensa Zangetsu.

Uh, not quite. Maybe for real life costume reasons, they made the outfit that that way, and perhaps the differences won't be noticeable from the audience's seating, but if you look at the picture carefully, it's definitely not just what Ichigo's outfit would look like in red.

See the anime character design (too lazy to find a manga example): http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/482435 The criss-crossing red parts of the character's costume loosely imitate the design of Ichigo's Bankai jacket, but it's obviously not the same, and the character has a jacket underneath that pink/red thing, which Ichigo lacks. Even Ichigo's Bankai outfit in the musicals themselves are different: http://pierrot.jp/title/bleach/musical/ See the title image.

I won't argue that the costume's an attempt to evoke feelings of deja vu when compared to Ichigo's Bankai outfit (especially since the character's supposed to be another side of Ichigo), but it's definitely not the same thing as Ichigo's Bankai outfit (just in red). It's similar to how the character's hair is not just a red version of Ichigo's wig. I can't tell from the picture whether the sword is a red Tensa Zangetsu - it looks very similar, but it wouldn't surprise me if they weren't identical either.
