New Volume Cover FAKE! and Very Important Poll  

Thanks to Annie who found the pic. The New Volume COVER! I loooove it.  ETA: IT'S A FANART  from Pixiv: http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=20004441 and it fooled me AND Annie (and I'm one who thinks Blast's art doesn't look like Kubo's).. so kudos to people who really thought it was a fake... I guess Kubo really will continue in the comic book style of previous covers ... but I really do love this fanart and I'm leaving it up. Tsukishima is a hottie.

Annie, you got one wrong for once. Nobody's perfect. Not even you. :)

I still expect Tsukishima on the cover for 51.

I love Tsukishima's pale paleness. We got a hint of it from the WSJ cover where he first appeared in color. The sword angle is cool here too. I've really fallen for this guy pretty hard.

Oh, as I was telling Annie--we didn't have a chapter called "The Memory's Edge"--this is just Kubo being poetic again. Referring to a precipice, something you can fall over. The edge of memory as well as the edge of a blade. Nice.

And because I'm weary of polls all over fandom asking who is the greater villain, Tsukishima or Aizen, I've made a more important poll.

Poll #1757804 Who is Prettier?

Who is Prettier?

I can't decide! BOTH ARE SO PRETTY!

That cover is so different from what KT usually does. It seems to be actually colored with the computer. Not sure if I like it.

That's funny. People on BA are doubting the cover is actually Kubo's work. One person said because it "seemed to be colored by hand." Lol.

The style is very very different from the previous two covers which were American-style comic but it seems to suit Tsukishima. If it's a forgery, it's amazingly good. The colors are the usual copic palette Kubo uses.

Not getting into drama whether it's real or not. Even every week we always have ppl going "I don't think spoiler pic looks real" until a ch finally released lol if this is a fake then it's am amazing one that managed to find a title to fit Tsuki's ability,Kubo's style and inserted Jump logo. That requires real work.

The cover is beautiful in my eyes :)
Great title too and it makes me sooo curious what his poem will be. I am betting his sword will be part of the little panel that comes with it.
I love Byakuya, especially since the dead wife tragedy works for his appeal, but Tsukishima is such a mystery at the moment as well haha

This man could be the lead of some random shoujo, that's how beautiful he is XD

Thanks for the pic. That's indeed one of the best covers we've had to date.

Neither Tsukishima nor Byakuya are my type really xD I think I'll go with Tsukishima, though, as I enjoy his choice of wardrobe and his creepiness <3
_debbiechan_: BYAKUKA_debbiechan_ on July 1st, 2011 11:34 am (UTC)

Both Bya and Tsukishima are my type. PRETTY. Complicated and intelligent goes a long way too as does the black hair.

You can't see Tsukishima's scar in this pic but I think his scar adds to his sexiness. I give him a slight edge in prettiness over Byakuya but Nii-sama gets loyalty points so I can't decide. XD

I'll wait for its authenticity. No, I'm not doubting Annie at all, but at some time, we all make mistakes.

Still, I don't like it at all.

The poll... eh. Byakuya. Tsukishima... he looks a little boring to me. Oh, and Byakuya has blue eyes. Everyone's better when they have blue eyes. <3 *loves blue eyes*
_debbiechan_: Bookman_debbiechan_ on July 1st, 2011 01:15 pm (UTC)

I apologize most sincerely for doubting YOU. I thought people in that thread were just disappointed in the Tsukishima-ness of the cover. I blame my fangirlness over Tsuki for getting me carried away.

I still love the drawing actually.

Omg, he's so beautiful! *____*

The cover is...different, but I like it. Different is good.

If I vote for Book Man in the poll, will Rukia-chan hate me?

Byakuya is the 'prettiest', but it doesn't matter to me because I don't like 'pretty' men.

Tsukishima > Byakuya on the manliness scale, however.

God, that smug face is just so punchable.
_debbiechan_: Bookman_debbiechan_ on July 1st, 2011 02:31 pm (UTC)

Punchable maybe...

I just tweeted that I still want Tsukishima on the REAL volume cover, that I want Tsukishima's blade in my body and the man in my memories. He's so... punchable, yeah. <3

I don't think it's real.

-We get it a month before the release date?
-It's not drawn in the same style as 49 and 50. Not exactly concrete, but it would seem weird to change styles after doing it twice. You'd think he would stick with it at least until the arc is over.
-A listing for Volume 51 has not shown up on Shueisha Books yet; let alone a picture of it. Amazon always has a listing up pretty early, but there's no picture there either.
-The chin and the eyes look odd to me.

Also, neither ca compete with this:
a league of his own

I always think that using fanart to prove how hot a character is kinda undermines the point. This actually looks hotter than Uruhara ever in the actual manga. :P

The cover looks fake to me. Tsuki's face looks off.

Both are very nice to look at, but Byakuya is prettier to me, especially without those hair noodles ♥

qwirky on July 1st, 2011 01:12 pm (UTC)
I'm actually really shocked by the poll results so far. I thought this would be more of a balanced affair. I'm biased because I find both Byakuya and Tsukishima unbearably pretty, so... Guess people aren't too keen on Tsukishima's prettiness. :3

DIE HARD BYAKUYA FANGIRL HERE. I've been absolutely in love with the man since he showed up.

In my opinion, no battle can top the Byakuya v Ichigo finale on Sogkyoku Hill. (The Dome came super close, but only because I think it's a paralell of the same fight)

Kubo, can you give us another antagonist who is clearly INCREDIBLY morally conflicted? You know, one who has to choose between duty and love? And chooses duty because his heart's already broken? And ends up nearly giving his life because he's actually valued love this whole time? All these posh, snooty dudes with their one sided superiority are wearing me a wee bit thin.

I would love you forever if you gave Tsukishima a more complex personality.
annie_08annie_08 on July 1st, 2011 01:49 pm (UTC)

I apologize for the confusion. I should have double-checked. I really thought the cover was Kubo's work.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on July 1st, 2011 03:41 pm (UTC)

Your years long 100% record of providing fandom with perfectly reliable info is broken Annie but we still trust you. We should've known Baidu was a little suspect but I was definitely starry-eyed over the art.

I dropped by just to vote for Kuchiki-sama.

I voted for Tsukishima only because you didn't have the option of "Byakuya with his hair down." I hate the hair decs on him. That one splash page where he has the coffee is my favorite picture of him ever.

Glad that I am not alone in finding the hair noodles silly. XD
