BLEACH Harajuku Event?  
 Former Editor-In-Chief of WSJ Hisashi Sasaki tweeted a few days ago about how any and all Bleach fans capable of getting to Tokyo for the summer should head to Harajuku. Anyone privy to Japanese care to tell us what's happening in August? There's lots of "COMING SOON" plastered everywhere, but it's got to say something. Pretty obvious this is a 10th anniversary thing, and it's neat they're doing... whatever they're doing the exact month Bleach came out ten years ago. i wonder if Aug. 7-14(or the second week of August) was the exact week.

EDIT: AW MAN. Didn't notice; maybe you guys did, but there's a link next to Ichigo's face with a HUGE Q&A.

Just getting the infos. I missed out on it when the page appeared but yeah, it's a festival for Bleach's 10th anniversary with posters on display as well as Kubo's art. Anniversary par-tee.

The official name of the event is Harajuku Bankai Matsuri*, one of the venues is Design Festa Gallery, and the text over the illustration says something about the Soul Reapers' party.

Also, as JPB noticed while I was writing this (patpat), there's a page giving an overview of some of the festival's components: (1) some sort of rally; (2) illustrated block; (3) exclusive Bleach goods; (4) a chance to get some art from KT.

This is where my moonrune skillz break down and I'd have to resort to Google Translate to give you any more detail, e.g. on the FAQ right below the foregoing.

* Translator's note: matsuri means festival.

Thanks for your help. Boy would it rock to get some Kubo art straight from him for you. D:

There's going to be a lottery for winners and I'm not sure he'll actually be there. :)
