Bleach 475 is up  
Bleach 475 is up at MangaReader.net.

MangaStream.com's version is also up.

Usual: Don't tweet to Kubo about the chapter or using pics from the chapter until Monday.


Rukia awakes and appears normal, so it seems we'll have to wait to see what Riruka did to her. Renji worries about Rukia, inadvertently hurting her shoulder in a cute scene. However, Rukia's concerns turn immediately to Ichigo and to helping him out. We get some nice shots of her face and expressions early in the chapter.

Yukio gets to look on in disbelief when Bankai Ichigo breaks through his pocket dimension. Impossible, impossible - nope, it was very possible, kid.

New Tensa Zangetsu... not sure if I like. No, pretty sure I don't like the sword redesign. Those ridges, man. Do Not Want. Ichigo's new Tensa Zangetsu attire is okay, but that sword :|

Ginjou tries to mess with Ichigo some more, but Ichigo tells him to shut up, has a cute scene with Ishida, and then proceeds to amaze us all by showing that yes, he does have the ability to think things through and be rational, instead of just being impulsive, emotional, and easily manipulated. Ultimately, Ichigo realized Ukitake wanted him to know that something was amiss with the badge, and Ichigo chose to continue using that badge in order to have the power to protect. Now Ichigo has clearly sided with the shinigami, whom he still considers his friends, in order to protect them against Ginjou. You're growing up, Ichigo. <3333 I feel so proud of him ;.;

Ginjou says the negotiations are off, apparently has now decided to kill Ichigo for real instead of recruiting him as a fellow scorned and used shinigami substitute, and goes bankai. Ginjou's bankai is terrible but also pretty good on him, if that makes sense. Very Aizen-looking in the face though.

D: What?! THAT'S IT?! That felt really short!
miss_ragdollmiss_ragdoll on November 30th, 2011 04:20 pm (UTC)
yeah, it felt the same for mee too. I guess that's what happens when enjoying too much XDDD

The massacre begins WTF??

chapter is WOAH! Ichigo's speech is GREAT. Once again, Sensei giving us a master lesson that, all that happens is for a reason; past events, that we ignored or forgor¡t on time, and now brought up for us to realize, as ichigo did at that time.

xD RenRuki interactions aww I love how sensei is giving us moar of rukia and her facial expressions and behaviour :3 "my shoulder hurts... "so lovely XD

we got to read about ichigo's insight and got to see Rukia. Also we saw Ichi's bankai and Rukia's concern. And finally Ginjou's rape face. I wonder if Tsukishima's 10 min of life are over already....

But still are things bugging me. If Rukia wakes up like nothing, what about Riruka??? When is it going to kick her? It scares the hell outta me...

Also, that forst shut up Ichigo says... yeah, I kinda understand it. because ichigo must have felt extremely fed up and pissed off of his friends hiding things from him not to hurt him. I would. And he's in a rush, kinda, so I forgive him. just once. because I know he gave him his kick of love!approval in previous chapter xDDDDDDDDDDDD

I love chapter!

Which one do you guys think has a better translation? I'm leaning on MangaReader. I've heard rumblings Mangastream fucked up Prey for Predators.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 30th, 2011 04:50 pm (UTC)

They've both had issues. Hey, you take what you can for speed translations. Best to go to many sources and have friends who speak the language. :)
Kylara: unnecessary pantskarenai on November 30th, 2011 04:38 pm (UTC)
That was an awesome fucking chapter. Ichigo highlights who he is again - wants to protect everyone, got the power from Rukia who understood that need - Ichigo DEMONSTRATES that he's smart enough to know who to trust here (read: not Ginjou), Rukia wakes up and immediately wants to go help and then ends up having a page - WITH BACKGROUNDS - of her witnessing Ichigo blow shit up. Then Ginjou turned into the godforsaken offspring of Aizen and Zabimaru. Awesome, awesome, awesome. And I say that as someone who's been MEH about Bleach for months and months now.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 30th, 2011 04:49 pm (UTC)

I'm so proud of Ichigo. He didn't have to be schooled by Ishida, lol. Ishida's face. And oh that speech. Gah.

So glad the evil!Ukitake can be put to rest now and that Ichigo has proved himself smarter than the average fanboi. LMAO.

Ohhhh Rukia, you ok? HAHA, the RenRuki is adorable. Renji's concern. I remember him annoying Ishida similarly by shouting in his ear after Ishida roused from being attacked by Szayel. Here he grabs Rukia too hard. It's so cute. What's scary is that Rukia seems ok--no sign of Riruka possession or anything o_O Uh oh.... saving it for later, Sensei?

ICHIGO, YOU'RE ALL GROWN UP AND MARVELOUS! It's like your shinigami bar mitzvah how you've proven yourself and given a speech and everything.

Ginjou--er, I dunno. He's looking like Aizen to me and I'm having Deicide flashbacks and post-deicide trauma.

I am laughing from now until Shabbos. :)
hinodeh: rukia looks aheadhinodeh on November 30th, 2011 04:50 pm (UTC)
Was I the only one who thought for a moment that Riruka is already controlling Rukia when she said Oni-san instead of Nii-san to Byakuya? Though now I am not sure anymore.
The scene between her and Renji was sweet, and very reminescent of the scene at the end of SS where he almost accidentally hugs her to death. XD

Ichigo's new sword is cool, his new outfit sadly so-so. The x on his chest look a bit too much like a fancy period costume instead of a battle outfit.
Okay, a few pages later it doesn't look so bad. Maybe it will grow on me.

Lol @ Ichigo for saying that the 1st shut up was for Ishida. Aww, their friendship is so tsundere. <3

So Ichigo basically admits that he'll take the downside of being observed if it means that he can have the power to protect people? Now that's a real hero. It seriously warmed my heart.

Oh boy, Ginjou's expression at that. Ichigo just broke his heart, lol. XD

Ginjou's bankai didn't make me think of Aizen when I first saw it but of OP's Hody Jones when he took those pills. Hair turned also white, and I think he had a fur coat, too.
Like Ichigo, his sword is pretty neat, even if it lacks the simple elegance the new Zangetsu has. But I bet LARPers would love it. XD
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 30th, 2011 04:53 pm (UTC)

Yeah I wonder if he's going to lose all the FB x's and frills. I think he kinda rocks the look but I preferred his old ban kai.

Ha, I'm glad that my thoughts about the stuff with Ukitake was basically right (at least for now, we could get trolled XD), that pretty much it was a case of the truth being interpreted negatively from Ginjou's side.

Sooo excited each time a new chapter comes out. Maybe it's the unpopular opinion, but I've found this whole arc interesting from the beginning. *_*

Ooh, Tensa Zangetsu is all serrated now. Sick.
peca_06peca_06 on November 30th, 2011 05:45 pm (UTC)
I wish that bratty kid gets his mouth frozen over. He has such a terrible attitude >.< ! I'm glad his "dimension box" was destroyed so he can choke on it XD.

Loved Rukia's worrying about Ichigo and his comedic moment with Renji <333. I guess Riruka is checking things out and might act later on. Some said a "ticking bomb" somewhere. I agree with that. I wonder when she'll show her intentions. Rukia right now is too worried about Ichigo to think about that.

Loved Ichigo's speech and I'm glad he is keeping it cool, collected and focused on what he is all about , Protecting people. His heartfelt words made me really proud to be his fan and really warm and fuzzy <333. A far cry from the broken down in despair and mentally unstable boy he was a few chapters back.

The Ishida - Ichigo moment was golden LOL "Stop worrying about me". This also warms my heart. I'm glad he is going onto battle with Ginjou with a clear head.
Ichigo was manipulated because he was driven into a corner, he never trusted Ginjou in the first place. Ichigo is impulsive, but capable of good analytical abilities when he keeps his mind cool and doesn't let his emotions get the best of him. He sure is close to achieving a good level headed warrior stance ^^.

Ginjou does remind me of Aizen, but I guess is the villain vibe, because physically he really doesn't XD. Maybe a distant cousin :P .
nehalenia: ichigo looking cool with swordnehalenia on November 30th, 2011 07:44 pm (UTC)
Great chapter! THAT'S the Kurosaki I remember and have been wanting to see again. The probably plot-driven stupidity is gone, his mind is clear, and Kubohe finally remembers that he's NOT an idiot.

I love him snapping at Ishida like that, and as much as I love that guy, Ishida deserved it. Chad and Orihime need to hear that "stop worrying about me" message too. This arc would have been hella shorter if they hadn't been tiptoeing around Ichigo's power loss and trying to protect his feelings.

My one disappointment with this chapter is that Ishida's clothes are explosion proof. :(

Also, did anyone else notice that the barbs on Tensa Zangetsu look awfully similar to the hilt of Ginjou's sword? I don't think the sword looks bad, but I'm unhappy with the thought that Ichigo's look has been so influenced by Ginjou. Bleah.

Too sleepy to really add much myself here, but your post summarizes my feelings to a T.

ICHIGO IS BACK. We haven't seen him like that in ages. I still think that Kubo went overboard with making the kid silly for plot convenience (I'm not even going to cross it out :P) but I am very willing to forgive that.

And shit happened in the chapter. We found out things, saw the bankais, the size of the panels was mostly reasonable. Just, please, may this keep up.

Only thing I noticed about this chapter?

Ginjou has hollow eyes and white hair.

The hollow hijack theory may still be valid.
oh gallant piglet,: konaizome on November 30th, 2011 08:18 pm (UTC)

Great chapter. Now waste that giant bug, Ichigo.
needaccount: Renjineedaccount on November 30th, 2011 08:39 pm (UTC)
Oh, Ichi-boy. We are so proud of you. :']
Ugh, he can be so fckin' adorable and gallant sometimes, I can't even handle it. /had been reading old chapters recently

I'm wondering, though, what happened to the pocket-dimension? It looks like Ichigo destroyed it but he hasn't really appeared with the others, so maybe it's not completely broken yet?

I am pretty ??? about Rukia. I'm wondering if she might actually have been taken over by Riruka who is just posing as her...Or that might all come later. Which is weird 'cause Ichigo's fight seems like it's starting to get wrapped up.
But her scene with Renji was so cute and, yes, reminiscent of that scene in SS. This and that scene Debbie talked about where Renji was worried about Uryu make me wonder where "Renji is an asshole" came from, aside from the beginning of SS.

Well, like many posters, I am glad we found Ichigo's brain along the way. And I am not as impressed by the new Tensa Zangetsu. Though, it does look kind of neat, I rather liked the original. Is there a reason for all these changes? Is this what being realized as an FBer does, or is this a side effect of all the extra reiatsu?
moga-mokamoga_moka on December 1st, 2011 02:01 am (UTC)
First of all, I totally love RenRuki in this Ch!!!XD

I'm so proud of Ichigo!XD not only about his speech but also about his calmness during the chapter. Glad Ginjou's mindf**k from previous chapter didn't screw Ichigo up like ones Aizen and Gin did. He's mentally stronger now.^^

Ichigo's speech's very ...emotional. it's like he hides all the logics behind his desire to "protect". Awesome, still. Very...shounen-manga hero style.

Ugh, how does Kubo make Rukia so freaking pretty in every panel? It's heartbreaking.

I know right?! So many beautiful Rukia panels. I wanna color them all, hnng.
