If it does get animated do you think Kubo would expand on it?

That would be the dream. For Kubo to be able to give it the proper ending. We all know he got fucked by Jump to finish that shit before he wanted.

If the anime does come back then they should animate the RR wedding novel before the last two chapters since it'll make the transition to the 10yr timeskip a lot smoother. Kinda like what they're doing with the Naruto light novels.

The Renruki novel sold more than death save the strawberry and the only ad the novel got in JUMP had the Ichihime sketch right in the middle and center. I don't think Japanese fans were/are that mad over the pairings. It was mostly fans outside of the Japan that were outraged.

They would animate it, they may have a boner for ichiruki but:

1) they are grown ass men and women who are much less likely to have developmental issues like IRfags on tumblr.

2) Japanese IR shippers aren't batshit crazy like western IRfag landwhales

3) At any rate, if there is a Jap IRfag animator who was actually super butthurt inside, we can all revel in fact that they have to animate their notps getting everything they wanted for their crackship.

Are the animators really all IRfags or is it that they jumped the gun way too early and though IR would happen so when they added shippy shit they saw how the fanbase ate it up and decided to add more for more $$$?

The most senior animator (Masashi Kudo) who works with other senior animators basically dictates how things should be animated, what things they should thrown in, take out, censor, Kudo is apparently an IRfag that likes IRfaggot things on his Twitter account. It's not like the whole studio are IRfags, just the ones making the decisions.

At some point, and this is likely during the SS arc, I think they knew IR wasn't going to be endgame, but the way the fandom ate up Ichigo and Rukia, they needed to milk that while they can and make a little more ¥¥¥ on the side if they could.

I think Kubo and some of the writers for some of filler will all get together and have a pow-wow over how they can fix the outright clusterfuck that was the last part of the manga.

It's going to be an anime original rather then just a animated version of the manga.

That's my hope.

I think that they thought that being the main characters a boy and a girl would be more profitable to insinuate something romantic, or at least teasing. And so they even erased all the proofs of that indeed Orihime was the romantic interest in the manga, and Orihime's romantic feelings for Ichigo were nonexistent in the anime until the SS arc ended.

From there they had no choise but make Orihime fall in love when Ichigo (whenher romantic feelings were in the manga since the start) because in the manga Orihime was confessing her love for Ichigo and this started being really important in the story and the anime couldn't ignore it anymore.

Not really, it was pretty obvious when she bumped into him in episode 2 or 3.

If they're going to do this, they better include all the stuff Kubo wanted to include.

If they just adapt the final arc panel-to-panel, no thanks.
>>
>>153529214
What? I don't see as "Bumped into him" means romantic feelings. They even made Orihime afraid of Ichigo

They erased a lot of things that clearly said that Orihime had feelings for Ichigo, starting with Tatsuki asking Orihime in chapter 2 why she liked Ichigo. And from there all the scenes where Orihime talked or thought about her feelings for Ichigo were erased. It was very clearly made on purpose.
>>
>>153529378
I kinda hope they don't animate it. The last six months of content were such a slog that if it weren't for a massive case of sunk cost fallacy on my part I would've dropped the series. I feel like an anime adaptation of that mess would drag on just as bad, and unless the studio makes shit up on a regular basis I cant' see how it would be any more satisfying.

Another LN (or even better just "Databook: Answers and Explanations for Shit"), maybe a fightan game, hierro-armor Yoruichi in Brave Souls. That's literally all I want/could enjoy out of the franchise anymore, and knowing my luck we won't get a databook, the fightan game will be on the wrong platform, and I'll burn all my orbs without pulling the character I want.
>>
>>153529778
This arc really only needs 4 cours. A lot of parts could be cut, hastened, or substituted for something new/unexpected. If a studio does pick it up they can't expect to milk it like Naruto so they'll just have to approach it like any other show airing today.
>>
>>153529702

Pierrot were tsunderefags. Orihime's feelings for Ichigo were fucking obvious in the manga. Instead of her being afraid of him, in the manga she says something about finding him funny, and one omake from the early tankoubon shows her being sad about him not comming at school.

Pierrot, specifically the female staff, with Yuka Miyata being the most blatant about it, are all tsunderefags and Ichirukifags. Just like in Naruto, the female staff was all tsunderefags and NaruCuckura faggots

>>
>>153530754
It's very different with Bleach. In Naruto had many NaruHina fanservice, and Naruto had a crush on Sakura, even if they promoted it more.

In Bleach they directly erased Orihime's feelings, a main character feelings, intentionally. And only started adding IchiHime fanservice when they couldn't already hide that Orihime was in love with Ichigo.

The last novel sold more than The death save the straweberry novel, even when Bleach has less sales and promotion than in 2012 (when the that novel was published).

The other poster was probably talking about the sales of the last manga volume and he meant volume, not novel, and indeed, volume 74 improved the sales of the last Bleach volumes.

So Bleach ending improved the sales of earlier volumes.

Honestly both pairings felt pretty forced as everything else in that godawful ending and that makes it OK. I sometimes wonder if someone forced Kubo to pair everyone up since they had 0 romantic development -unless you count the one sided crush from Orihime-. Nonetheless, Rukia had the exact same relationship with Ichigo and Renji, the only difference being the later a childhood friend. So I legit do not understand how people can claim that Rukia and Renji makes more sense.

That's ridiculous. Sounds like some kind of fanfiction "we can't let the story just end like this!" kind of thing.

Not really. Many of the Espada were following his orders only because he was stronger than them or because it was convenient, only caring about themselves. Only Ulq, Starrk, Zommari and pre-betrayal Nelliel did show some signs of loyalty/positive feelings toward Aizen.

But that's wrong. Yhwach is not gone. He is the new lynchpin and like his father can use his power to attack others even after his death. We literally saw the Soul King doing that after he died. That Yhwach is able to do that, means that the seals containing the lynchpin are leaking.

It is a complete mystery what Kazui did. Either he dispersed part of Yhwach's power and destroyed it, he absorbed it into himself and depending on how much, becoming the new lynchpin or Yhwach infected Kazui with his essence, trying to make him the next enemy of the Shinigami.

Sounds more like he should release manga like how people should release books. That should actually resolve most of Kubo's issues, except the too many characters. It also allows him to revist things that sounded good in the begining but didn't work out in the end.

I'm not even upset that Rukia got with Renji, I mean it was obvious for a long time Renji really liked Rukia and cared for her a lot. I mean so did Ichigo, but Orihime wanted to be with Ichigo a lot more and there were times were Ichigo was really protective over Orihime as well.

Really it makes more sense for Rukia to be with Renji, and I think deep down Rukia really liked Renji but never showed it. I felt like there was a love triangle between Rukia, Ichigo, and Renji.
>>
Bleach ended when Aizen was killed, are they going to keep on doing manga fillers?
>>
Reminder that Rukia and Orihime adore each other and that some /u/fags have already written fics about them using their husbands as beards so they can engage in their forbidden romance without anyone getting suspecious. Also, IchiRukifags believe that if Kazui and Ichika get together it'll be sealment that Kubo just pussed out because of editors. I love fans. They're the craziest fuckers you'll ever have the displeasure of meeting and there's an endless number of them for every medium!

This is objectively true. It was unrequited love. On the other hand he always seemed thirsty as fuck for Rukia, even if he didn't realize it. At least in early Bleach. Before Kubo decided to write Rukia out of the story.

Honestly, I think she should have ended up with Chad. He was always there with her from the beginning. They did a lot of their training together. Chad protected her a number of times. It wouldn't be far fetched if he harbored feeling for her which he didn't express for the same reason she didn't want to tell Ichigo how she felt.

I always pegged Uryuu with Nemu or alone.

Was Rukia really absent from the manga for a whole year? I know that at that point even Ichigo was hardly a main character, but this is hilarious.

>>153564438
It wasn't romantic chemistry.

Fortunately I saw this from the start and never shipped them. And I don't understand how some people could ship them when Rukia treated Ichigo like a kid. They seemed an older sister with her little brother whom she scolded but was also worried about him. I never found their dynamic romantic. Kubo saying that there weren't romantic feelings in their relationship was exactly my thought about it.
I think that people shipped them because the main girl and boy stereotype.
>>
>>153566044
That obviously played a part. But I think some people just genuinely found (actually nonexistent) story of a boy and a girl from different worlds saving and changing each other's lives and ultimately falling in love pretty romantic, more so than girl's teen crush transforming into true love coupled with continuous attempt to aid him in battle winning her his heart (which also kinda never happened on-screen). IchiRuki never had any real basis in the manga, more - the only romantic subplot developed at all was Inoue->Ichigo, but I can understand people shipping it (howevere, not really going as crazy over it; that applies to IchiHime, too, it's just freakin' unhealthy).

>>153566292
The fandom, and this is shippers, usually are few in a manga until the series gets an anime, then the fandom and shippers grow a lot.
So most shippers appeared when the anime was released. And in the anime they made Orihime's s feelings for Ichigo to be nonexistent until the end of the SS arc, and they changed many scenes too. That helped to the gap in the popularity of the pairings.

Yes, the imagination of the IchiRuki fans is really unhealthy

To talk about something non-shippy - what do you think Kubo's special chapter for live action be like? Do you think he'll get more than ~20 pages?

The most disappointing thing for me was the lack of explanations, about the royal guard, the original way 1k years ago, yawach being the son of the soul king.

I was SO sur that there was an over the top keikaku by urahara-ichibei-the soul king that needed for the royal guard to be defeated initially to make yawach overconfident or some shit...

Also Aizen's keikaku, which was nothing, in the end he just shows for the lols and has no fucking keikaku and ends up being imprisoned again.

It better be at least twenty pages of Urahara explaining shit and Yoruichi taking him to task for leaving out important details, or taking too much time on irrelevant bits of trivia.

He literally abandoned a basically dying Rukia back in the HM arc when Ulquiorra revealed he was the one that took Orihime. Before the Grimmjow fight started, Grimjow mentioned what he did to Rukia (basically putting a hole in her stomach) to rile him up and few other things yet Ichigo didn't put on a "good fighting face" till Grimmjow mentions that they might of fucked Orihime inside up or something like that.

A part of it, you have answered it yourself. The filler episodes changed the perception of the characters and the continuity of the story and there were contradictions.

Besides, had pretty changes in the part that supposedly followed the canon story.

Some characters, especially Orihime, didn't have a good characterization. Orihime was completely butchered and changed from how she was actually in the manga, to the point that many people don't like her in the anime but in the manga she is one of their favorite characters. I'm one of that persons.

Stay bitter, Himefag. Your favorite girl is just a big pile of nothing.

>Rukia is a child not a real woman, that's why she lost/

KUUUUUUROOOOOSAAAAKKKKKIIIIIII~KKUUUUN

There's more to being 'adult' than tits anon. Also, she's like 100+ years old.

Only winning it all.

>>153580342
That's her love.

>yet the novel still managed to sell over 450k
What THE FUCK is this bullshit? Have IchiHime became so desperate to spread such lies? The novel sold something like 50K as far as I remember. And you must post fucking links to prove your bullshit numbers.
>>
>>153580435
I think he meant the last volume, anon

>Only winning it all.
She didn't deserve it though.

I just hope it won't be the same seiyu that voiced Zangetsu.

>>153580387
Well, if retarded MC counts as 'all'. I honestly can't understand why IR are upset over it. Ichigo has been a Gotei brainless slave without any goal in his own life or any personality since the first arc. He is the most bland and boring MC in all shounenshit. Be glad Rukia got someone else.
>>
IchiRuki never had a chance. Ichigo is underage and Rukia is not
>>
>>153580933
>That old excuse again.
>>
>>153571471
Did he ask Kudo today or is it old?
>>
>>153580970
It's not an excuse. Bleach is a popular manga. You don't want it pushing paedophilia
>>
>>153580893
No.

>>153512678
>To job for fucking fujo bait
>Also, no bankai nor shikai
God, the ending was so dissapointing.

>>153546900
>How mad would people be if they adapt the rest of Bleach but in the ending Ichigo and Rukia get together while Inoue gets with Chad.
I'd be mad because Inoue and Uryu makes more sense.
>>
>>153581003
The context you're applying that word to doesn't correspond to Ichigo's and Rukia's relationship.

Stupid, Himefag.
>>
>>153558035
Kubo just copied anime style. In the end of the last arc his art became not pretty at all. I'm not even talking about the sameface though fucking everybody had it, but even his designs became ugly. Like the final form of Ichigo and those two knife swords. Just plain shit.
>>
>>153519492
He wasn't the strongest. He couldn't do shit in the end.
>>
>>153581025
Ishida was in love with her, there were hints about it since the first arc when he blushed looking at her etc. But Kubo just dropped that plotline like many others. Come to think of it, maybe Ishida isn't close with IH now because of his own feelings for her. Bet he thought that he should have killed Ichigo and helped Bach.

Neither could Byakuya or Zaraki since Gerard was total bullshit. Kyoraku wouldn't have done much better either.
>>
>>153581371
I wish Ichibei had showed up and did something badass to redeem himself. Instead he just got absorbed and wasted way too many chapters
>>
>>153581310
I'm not IR fag. You are a paranoid retard. Now normal people can't even criticize the ending without autists like you bringing IR or IH in it.
>>
>>153581371
Shunshui wouldn't be able to do anything either. Kubo needed to pull a retarded shit like Bach killing his own soldiers to let shinigami win.
>>
>>153581260
That would be an uncharacteristically petty reason for Ishida to help a destructive lunatic that killed his mother. You had me till the last line, then you totally blew it.
>>
>>153581395
Why would you want him to return when his revival was one of the biggest asspuls in that arc. And absolutely fucking meaningless at the same time. Kubo should have killed him.

>Ishida is in love with Orihime, he stopped being close friends with her and Ichigo because of his "unrequited feelings" and he would've killed Ichigo and joined Ywhach over that.
>You call your shipperfag delusion "criticising the ending".
>>
>>153581504
Well, Ishida had no problem at all to help a lunatic that tortured and killed his grandfather and also 3000 of his people. He somehow just forgave Mayuri. Also Yhwach didn't even kill his mother just took his own power from her.
>>
>>153581546
I'm not a shipper of any of them. You are really an autist or from tumbr if you see everything through the shipping glasses.

>people actually want characters they like to end up with the shitshow that was Ichigo
I don't get it.
>>
>>153580893
>anybody calling my waifu shit is a shipperfag!!
>>
>>153581662
This. I don't get why IR so obsessed over it. Ichigo is shit character by all means. Is this just because he is the MC?
>>
>>153581662
It's why him with Orihime together was so great. Two of the shittiest characters together
>>
>>153581720
Then why do you like the fact that Orihime is with him if he's so shit?
>>
I hope Ishida is banging Karin
>>
>>153581796
Where did I say that I like that fact? SHOW ME where is this written in my post. Or are you fucking insane? I don't care about either couple. Did you think I am IHfag? How funny because just a moment ago another anon called me IR. You people are mad.
>>
>>153581611
What Mayuri can do to the world is not really the same as what Yhwach could do. I don't feel like trying to find logic in Kubo's faulty writing right now, but Ishida is too prim and proper to condemn the world like that.
>>
>>153581921
What do you mean condemn? Yhwach wanted to eliminate death and to unite two worlds, not destroy them.
>>
>>153581721
Let's hope that shittiness isn't genetic or their kid may just end up bad enough to become the lead of a modern harem series.
>>
>>153582053
I'm not reading anything involving a little shit like their son so I couldn't care less
>>
>>153581985
What Yhwach wanted is chaos that existed once before, what can be seen in smaller scale in Hueco Mundo and Rukongai slums. People would still suffer and die, as uniting worlds does not eliminate possibility of soul being destroyed or absorbed.
>>
>>153582274
Isn't he only doing that so that he can live without having to constantly absorb souls? I don't think he cares about anybody else than himself
>>
>>153582274
But he said the opposite, that's just your interpretation. He said that there will be no death after the uniting. So all this shit about chaos is only your theory.
>>
>>153581854
That would be an interesting pairing.
>>
>>153581348
Well there is a chance that he is just not allowed to say anything at the moment, that tweet with the sketch was deleted too after all. Or it's all about a game, not anime.
>>
>>153582522
You think he's somehow obliged to answer every single tweet directed at him? Especially the one written in English? He could simply ignore him. If he said so, I'm pretty sure he's honest. Besides, few months back (Pacific Expo) he openly admitted he's actively trying to get the last arc animated.
>>
>>153582889
As far as I remember he didn't say that he is actively trying to do something about it. Just that wished they make a new anime. But anyway, if that's a twitter of games company CEO they might be making a Bleach game.
>>

>>153582990
"As a manga story it has ended but there are parts that haven’t been made into an anime yet. I talk a lot with the anime staff about things we can do later."
Well, depends what he means by 'anime staff', if it's just people he has worked with and these are just highly hypothetical talks then you're right. I just assumed he might have tried to talk with some higher ups about possibilities of it returning.
>>
>>153580435
Calm your tits fucking landwhale novel was a typo it's supposed to say manga volume.
