Adorable Tweets from Kudo Masashi re Bleach Breasts & Kubo on Rukia's gender  
From deathberry of course, your source for the latest and most accurate Bleachy stuffs lately.

From pikeish here:

Cute tweet from Kudo Masashi (animation director of now deceased Bleach anime) on what he thinks when drawing Rukia.

A fan has tweeted him about what his opinion on Orihime's chest is and he replied with "Big", then another fan tweeted him asking what he thought on Rukia's? This was his answer:



Small. I think it is more like I consider her body's general petiteness when drawing her. Like, in contrast to Ichigo. In the skating episode (342), I've struggled with the representation of the difference in the size of their hands.

Fans always did compare Rukia's height with Ichigo's, like how before the time-skip, it was exactly a foot difference. It's cute how Kudo's mind also went into comparing her height in contrast to Ichigo, and even for that detail with the size of their hands in the Date episode.

Also Kudo-san did give a brief response about Riruka's breasts.

Earlier in the week, Kubo-sensei himself had tweeted something funny in response to a fan questioning if Rukia was a boy. Here is the tweet translated by nacchan here:

Fan : Rukia is a girl isn't she?
Kubo : You need to ask? / What are you trying to confirm?

The tweet was a while ago but I'm still laughing--probably because I've heard so many Ruka=Hanatarou, Rukia=androgynous, Rukia=man comments in fandom lately. Usually Sensei takes the high road and doesn't address the crap he gets on a daily basis but I'm amused he chose to answer this dumbass tweet.

Girls/women come in all shapes and sizes LOL Isn't it obvious that Rukia is a girl? I'm glad Kubo had enough about all this nonsense and snapped at that freaking moron XDDD. Fandom could be so mean, cruel and disgusting some times.
Thanks to the translators (Pike sama <3) and for sharing ^^ <333

Thank you Deb, and thank you Kubo. I'm beyond sick of the Rukia = Hanatarou remarks. Might as well say Orihime looks like Ukitake, since they both have long, flowing hair. Rukia always looks beautiful and elegant, whereas poor clumsy Hanatarou was probably born with eyebags.

Love this. <333
Fandom tards can think what they want, but Rukia's incredible ass makes all their "Rukia = androgynous", "Rukia = a man" comments invalid.

Hell yes, thank you Kubo <3. I didn't know people actually thought that and for one (sickening) millisecond, I actually gave the notion some credence. I'm disappointed in myself. Q.Q YAY for Kubo though.
