Welcome to Bleach: Redux

Myself and others were extremely disappointed with Ulquiorra's death in the official Bleach manga, so I've taken it upon myself to draw out what could've possibly happened had Orihime pulled her head out of her ass and saved him. WARNING: UlquiHime. Any negative comments (or futile attempts at validating other ships that make even less sense (ie: IchiHime)) will be deleted. NOTE: READ RIGHT TO LEFT LIKE JAPANESE MANGA.

Eidolon goes online

If anyone liked my storytelling rather than just the fact that I was drawing Bleach, please give my original story a shot. I'm quite proud of it and I think it's pretty damn good.

Oh my god!!

For those who have been somewhat aware of my lackluster fortune regarding employment for these last few months (some may remember that I took most of August off of the comic because I had no time, doing my externship and finishing school at the same time)...I just wanted to let you guys know...

I've finally been hired! I'll be starting my career as a medical professional on Wednesday *_____* What's funny is that the clinic I've been hired into is literally a stone's throw away from my externship clinic, so I could walk there and be like "O HAI DER?!"

Chapter 12!

FINALLY.

I got my mojo back. I took like half the week off, after spending the last month futilely and bitterly trying to make Chapter 12 happen, only to give up and not know what to do with it. I actually almost had it finished and ready to post, but it was just so...lousy...that I decided to scrap it outright and rewrite it.

Thankfully, after reactivating my Warcraft account and playing my DK to 85 (oh god, I replaced all my ICC heroic gear with quest blues just so I could qualify to enter Cataclysm instances...it hurt me so badly), effectively purging my brain of anything having to do with Bleach, my inspiration finally came back. I was able to rewrite the chapter in a way that made some damned sense and didn't suck outright.

So...it's 40 pages long, the first 3 are in full color, the coverpage has been redone to suit the mood of the story better (Bonus #2 was the original coverpage and it was too light-hearted for this update), and tomorrow, I'm gonna get to work on the 32 someodd pages that I need to ink before I can upload this beast. I'm actually really excited about this chapter now because everyone is in-character again, especially Ulquiorra, who was really fucking ooc in my last attempt.

My apologies for the delay! I didn't expect my life would suddenly turn so shitty that my story would be effected to this extent, but that's all finally passed and I can BREATHE again. So, as a result, my creative juices are flowing again at last and I can pick up the pace.

Ch7 will be a little late

(Lol "16 days since last update" ~_____~)

Anyway, as said, Ch7 will be a little late. It's a larger-than-normal chapter (40 pages) and I had to take like 4 days off to get ready for an exam (and by "get ready" I mean "tried to work on the comic anyway because I knew all the material but I was so psyched out about it that I couldn't focus on anything, and couldn't sleep.")

But anyway...I'm like 12 pages from being done, and I'm hustling my ass to finish it as soon as possible.

Ch8 reworking will come after that with a mini-update to replace the first 19 pages. I may take a slight break from drawing so I can reink the existing Ch9 and Ch10 in Sai, and get used to drawing Yammy again (not to mention, I forgot about Hanatarou, just like Kubo did...) That shouldn't theoretically take too long since I'm just inking over the existing images so the quality matches Ch3-7. Ch1-2 will stay as they are...they're good enough @___@

Yeah.

Just a foot-note...

I'm entering the last 7 weeks of my degree program and I'm currently stuck doing a month-long externship.

From 8am-10pm Mon-Thurs I'm either at said externship, or in class. I literally have no time to do anything I like. So...while progress is still progress, it'll be very slow until I'm done with everything else.

So, Ch5 is projected to be online in around 2 weeks (yes, that's well beyond my average expected release time, but I used to have 7 days a week to work on it, now I'm down to 3.) Ch6 will probably take till the end of the month (it's a slightly longer than average chapter anyway.)

Come September 14th, I can finally get my life back, and updates will probably be a LOT more frequent than they were before. Like, average every 7-10 days instead of 10-14.

So, if everyone can bear with me until then, I'd really appreciate it. I'm doing the best I can but I don't always deliver miracles =P

Next update will be Ch1 and 2

I mentioned before that I was redrawing Ch1-7, and I'm going to be doing that before I move on to Ch11. I just need a break from drawing Yammy (it makes sense now why Kubo never bothered to really draw out most of that fight...it's not really very much fun.)

Not to mention, I really am in dire need of practice when it comes to drawing Ichigo. I almost had it when I last drew his scrawny ass, but I'm worried he'll still look somewhat lopsided when I get to the Aizen fight, and I really want that to be a series of chapters I don't regret looking at later (especially since I'm thinking of making some of them full-color.)

So...yeah...gonna work on the new versions of Ch1-2 (The Ash and The Heart) and then get back to Ch11.

Yeah, so, the start is changing.

I ended up rewriting the entire first 7 chapters of this damn thing. It's a lot shorter than what I have now (comic-pages-wise...I could cut out all of Chapter 6,) but it gets to the point a lot faster (and there aren't any parts where Ulquiorra's looking around like he left the oven on or something.) I'm a lot happier with how things go in the new version so expect Ch1-7 to slowly be gotten rid of and replaced as I make these new pages. Ch8+ will remain as they are, since they regard everything that happens after Ulquiorra agrees to go with Orihime. Ch8 may only require a few small dialogue updates to match what I changed.

The redo also better explains why Kenpachi couldn't land a hit on Ulquiorra even with that stupid "LOL IF I USE BOTH HANDS ON MY SWORD I HIT HARDER" move that he killed Nnoitra with. It's not that I'm biased for Ulquiorra and feel that he really could survive an attack like that in his unreleased state...but it doesn't seem like many people remember Aizen's inner monologue about the reasons why Ichigo was able to survive his attacks in that last fight. So...since Ulquiorra's a smart cookie, he understands what's happened and has a small inner monologue of his own where he pieces together exactly what it means to have Orihime's Chain of Fate attached to him.

So...yeah. As I continue to post newer chapters, I'll also be including parts of the new beginning. I really just can't express how much more satisfied I am with the new version...not just because I know they art will be way better, but because the storytelling doesn't drag on for a hundred years to get to the same conclusion.

I mean...really...after Ulquiorra realized what the Heart was, and after Orihime realized she reached back to him because she didn't want him to die (it's a game-changer when you realize someone cares about you), the only real obstacle should've been Ichigo... More accurately, Orihime realizing how much stronger she's become because of Ulquiorra (Ichigo drags her down), and Ulquiorra struggling to believe her. He generally believes that no good can come from the whole thing, especially considering what he'd said to Ichigo before:

"If it's because of the Heart that you humans feel pain, then it will be because of the Heart that you lose your life."

I'm such a bad author =_=

I think I'm gonna put together an alternative beginning for this doujinshi...something that eventually leads up to the same events that are happening in Ch7+...but something that doesn't drag on for a thousand years like Ch1-6.

In part, because the art still bothers the crap out of me, and also because I really think I can do a much better job in a much shorter period of time. Characterizations are a bit off (especially Ichigo in some areas, I think.) So...yeah...gonna do that...
