Kubo tweets about URYUU  
Forgive me, I've just gone into fangasms--aaaaah, what fan doesn't want to hear that her favorite character is going to appear "as much much as possible" in the story? 

translation by verduistering from the Ishida Uryuu FC at Deathberry here The Japanese and more Kubo tweets here. OY, all I can say is I think I have tears in my eyes, haha.  Bleach is ending, and of course I want to see a lot of Uryuu in the end. Please take care of our boy, Sensei, as you remember to take care of your own health. And these following exchanges with fans are soooo endearing. Kubo-sensei's response tweets are in red:

@tite_kubo: I can’t think of a male name that starts with "U".

@cafemari: Uryuu.

@cafemari @tite_kubo: Sensei! I love Uryuu-kun too! Yo! It’s a cool name!

@CHICAUMINO: Wa! Thank you very much. I’m planning to make him appear as much as possible in the final arc! (lol)

@CHICAUMINO @tite_kubo: Kubo-sensei! Please take care. Uryuu-kun and his daddy are so dreamy! Great genes. The fact that he’s good at sewing is also wonderful.

@cafemari: Uryuu is really popular with the ladies, isn’t he...? Not fair... Thank you for your concern! I’ll do my best to take care!

Ishida-kun is overdue for an appearance. Nice to see Sensei hasn't forgotten him!

'Not fair'..... lol!~

Kubo is so adorable!

This is wonderful news! I was really worried this was going to be one of those "arc is about Uryuu -- Uryuu never appears" things. Thank you so much for post this, Deb (and Estella May for the translations.)

And what is this popular with the ladies bit? I guess he means female fans since I haven't seen female characters in the manga pay him that much attention. (Tho maybe that will change?) ;)

Bring on the Uryuu, Kubo. I can't wait!

These translations are by verduistering. My Japanese is still pretty horrible.

I'm amused at the whole "not fair" bit too. I've always thought that Ishida is sort of like Kubo's own self-insert. Or maybe that Uncyclopedia article just really messed with my head.
nehalenia: ishida super quincynehalenia on August 12th, 2012 09:46 pm (UTC)
Right, sorry! (I got it right on DB at least.) XD

I thought the same thing about the "not fair". Sounds like Kubo is a bit jealous of his own self-insert. Maybe that's why he tortures Ishida so much? I'm not even sure where I heard that but it just seems right. I'll bet Kubo was a bit of a nerd in high school and maybe took very seriously things that others look a bit askance at, like Uryuu's sewing.

Of course Uryuu's not an exact self-insert, but I've often wondered if that isn't why Kubo keeps taking him down a notch or two whenever he tries to look cool? (Like making Pesche tag along with him through most of the HM arc.)
estella_may: defaultestella_may on August 12th, 2012 09:54 pm (UTC)
OH gawd, I just realized! If Ishida = Kubo's insert and Ishida = Me, then maybe I am Kubo in some way! It all makes sense now.

Dude, if you look at Kubo's pic when he was young, then you can tell that Ishida is totally his self-insert. And if you watch him on shows and stuff, he's still pretty shy and awkward. It's so adorable. XD
nehalenianehalenia on August 12th, 2012 10:01 pm (UTC)
Oh how funny! I've never seen interviews of Kubo, I don't think, but I'll take your word for it. I do think that he, like most writers, puts a bit of himself into all his characters. Like, I'm pretty sure Kon is Kubo's inner-perv brought to life -- and notice how much crap he puts Kon through, as well? XD

And if you're Kubo, please oh please tell us what's going to happen! ;)

estella_may: defaultestella_may on August 13th, 2012 01:01 am (UTC)
Ooh this is fun! Lemme try it with some more characters~

Renji = his inner beta male gangster?
Rukia = his inner desire to be dominated by a tiny woman with a sword?
Kenpachi = his inner desire to burn the whole building down when his editor pisses him off?
Szayel = Umm...

As for what'll happen next... Kenpachi will go save Byakuya, after which they make out. Ichigo breaks out of his cage, goes and finds Rukia, then they also make out. After all the blood is cleaned up in SS, they go to Karakura, where Ichigo discovers that Ishida is his distant cousin. They're confused but it doesn't stop them from making out.

Hey Lumi, where you been, baby? <3

Hello dear friend! I feel horrible for just disappearing without a word. In truth the story may be a bit long regarding my whereabouts. I'll be back to normal soon, though, I pray. Thank you for being so kind! This applies to you, too, la_kalaka. <3

As deebie said, where has you been lady? ;D

Oh god, this made me laugh so hard! XD If you'd said this on DB, I'd have rep'd you, then gone on a rep spree just so I could come back & rep you again. XD

Have I told you lately that I love you Sensei Estella?

Bwahahaha! OMG I really needed that laugh. Thank you so much!

I'm happy for you and the rest of his fans :) He's been getting the short end of the stick for years now. It'll be nice to have him back.
Moe★Hoshi: Sou...moehoshi on August 12th, 2012 11:03 pm (UTC)
LOL, finally.

oh gallant piglet,: ishidaaizome on August 13th, 2012 01:08 am (UTC)
Kubo, ILU, I really do, but...

ANY TIME, NOW! I used to be a patient person, but damn. This is getting ridonkulous. D:

And LOL at his being jealous of the attention Ishida gets. The man who is always getting tweets from lady-fans who want him to take better care of himself. XD The same lady-fans who would give him all that attention IRL if they could. He's so modest.
♀*La Muerte Chiquita*♀: epic shitla_kalaka on August 13th, 2012 01:42 am (UTC)
I have to point out that the first two tweets are mixed.

@cafemari, is the one who can't think in a name with "U"

and sensei out of the bluse says to her "Uryuu"

Now I proceed to go stupid: hasgjjafsdfgfaffagafga!! <3
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on August 13th, 2012 09:27 am (UTC)

no, they're right--they're copied from the tweets--as in, @cafemari was talking to @titekubo when asking the question so that's why I said Sensei's responses are in red.

and yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss, I know.keyboard smash forever.

Gotta note that @CHICAUMINO is Umino Chica i.e. author of Honey & Clover and 3gatsu no Lion, so not just a random fan but a hugely successful (fellow) mangaka.
nehalenia: keigo runningnehalenia on August 13th, 2012 04:01 am (UTC)
The author of Honey & Clover loves Uryuu & thinks he & Ryuuken are dreamy? OMG CAN THIS DAY GET ANY BETTER? SQUEEE!

Thanks for that info, I didn't know. And how much do I love that Umino-san likes Bleach? I need to watch that all over again.

Once Bleach is done, Umino-san needs to convince Kubo to do a slice-of-life manga about fashion (starring someone who looks very much like Uryuu, of course.)
♀*La Muerte Chiquita*♀la_kalaka on August 13th, 2012 04:48 am (UTC)
I demand a spin off about Uryuu in his future and most likely career <3 by these two

I DO WANT (gotta read Honey and Clover too)
