FOR ANYONE WHO SOMEHOW DID NOT GET THE MEMO:

Ch21 is ON HOLD until AFTER I FINISH MY COSTUMES FOR OTAKON. I hate doing things at the last second and I won't be struggling to finish things the night before my flight because I still have to go to work that day. SO...until everything is finished, I won't be drawing anything.

Well, except maybe on the 15th, cuz it's the 1 year anniversary of me posting Ch1 of the reboot on DA.

Orihime looks sexy, Ulqui looks sexier, Ichigo isn't acting all macho... Life is good. =v=

However, are the pictures of him with murcielago in the next chapter, or did I miss something?

Reply Rip the Hunter, June 4th, 2012, 12:10 am

@Jackalyte: Nope. Pages that have a black background instead of white are typically the type that depict a past event. Ulquiorra was basically just remembering what had happened after Aizen dropped him, since I didn't depict it until after he came back.

Wow, Rip! You definitely don't disappoint. I can't think of anything else to say that wouldn't have me sounding like a little kid jumping up & down in front of the Christmas tree.

At least part of my Monday won't suck. I'm also glad to see Nel getting a little more attention. I always wondered why Orihime didn't try to heal her properly, and why her character pretty much disappeared after Nnoitra knocked her back into child form.

<3 <3 I was screaming so much with excitement!!! My dad told me to stop yelling... BUT ANYWAY!!! OMG OMG OMGGGG !!! You never dissapoint. Like, Never. Your a brilliant story-teller/ writer and your drawing skills are just fantastic! I dont know how much praise i can give you without it sounding... well... somewhat borderlined 'creepy' XD But still a major fan!! anyways, cannot wait for the next update!!! THIS COMIC IS JUST SO GOOD!!

You’re not the only one screaming! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY ULQUI !!!
Rip thank you for the topless epicness. Very good way to mix business with pleasure. Can't think of a better way to (literally) “con-front” Aizen with Ulqui's new form and resolve.
For the rest, I would love to provide you with some constructive criticism ... but I can only think of praise to give.
I love Aizen's shocked expression, I love Ichigo's vulnerability, I love Nell's cuteness and most of all I love Ulqui's ... everything.

OHHH wait, I thought of some criticism! Here it comes ... aghum *cough* ... It's to short! I want more!
Please clone yourself so you can produce this story at an inhuman speed!

LOL but seriously, still a super big fan. I'll wait patiently for more, because it has always been, and will always be, worth the wait!

@Night_Shade: OMG I KNOW RIGHT!? It's bad enough Orihime never offered to fix Ichigo after Mugetsu. I mean, she knows what her powers are supposed to be able to do...she's seen it in action...but I guess she doesn't believe in herself enough. It's the only rational thing I can come up with for why she didn't try to save Ulquiorra, and why she didn't fix Ichigo. (Well, other than both Ulquiorra and Urahara telling her she couldn't do it...but that's beside the point.)

@akahanakiyo: Thanks XD

@Mayune: You nearly gave me a coronary when you said you had constructive criticisms. I was all waiting for something like...I totally botched a plot point or something. As for cloning myself...I wish. XD But then only one of us would get to work on the doujin and the other would feel left out.

Reply Mayune, June 5th, 2012, 1:21 am

@Rip the Hunter: LOL sry to scare you, but I don't think it is possible for you to actually 'botch' anything.
You are to dedicated to do anything but your best work, and tallented enough that your best work is alway epic, so I think you're save XD

Again a amsterpiece. Kyoka suigetsu's Bankai is scary, specially the black eyes p'art.

Aizen is in for a beating!

Reply Night_Shade, June 6th, 2012, 6:30 pm

@Rip the Hunter: Hey, that's why we fans have you. Geez, I really am starting to sound like the ultimate suck up, but I wouldn't even bother to comment if I didn't mean it.

Any writer worth anything knows that even supporting characters introduced into a storyline need to have their part in it brought to to some sort of conclusion. Making them sympathetic to readers & then dropping them as if they never existed in the first place just pisses people off.

All that aside, wasn't Orihime told by another character that she could do things like this with her power, or was that something exclusive to the anime and my ignorance is showing?

Reply Rip the Hunter, June 7th, 2012, 1:01 am

@Night_Shade: Nope, you're remembering right. That was Hachigen, and he told Orihime that her powers were probably like his own, in that she could restore something to how it was before, even if there wasn't a single piece of it left. He demonstrated this power by restoring Tsubaki, because Yammy had smashed him and broke the Rikka in the process. Tsubaki came back to life, even though Orihime couldn't find a single bit of him. It's this fact that makes Orihime's inaction so hard to take. She could've saved Ulquiorra, and she could've given Ichigo his powers back, IF she had simply understood her own powers enough to apply them. I've taken the higher road and said she did...and so she's saved Ulqiuorra, and will eventually, later on, offer to Ichigo to save him, too. Of course, he'll put up that stupid "This is how I always wanted it" crap like he did before, but he'll soon realize that's a load of crap XD

Reply Night_Shade, June 7th, 2012, 5:15 am

@Rip the Hunter: Good! That girl could use a bit more self-confidence. She's already been shown to have untapped potential for more than just healing & shielding abilities when circumstances merit. Why else would she have Tsubaki in the first place? You've given us another glimps of it & I'm looking forward to seeing it develop (if that's the plan - I wouldn't presume to suggest what you should write). As for Ichigo, yup - total load of "I'm in denial" crap. BTW - you are making me hate Aizen even more than I already did. I suppose that's a good thing, since it'll make his eventual defeat all the more satisfying. XD

Reply Rip the Hunter, June 7th, 2012, 7:16 am

@Night_Shade: Eh, Orihime will always be a support character in fights, IMO. She's not the type to go looking for combat like the others do, but when called to, she won't be so hesitant to help. Either way, there won't be much fighting going on for her for a long time.

Reply Night_Shade, June 7th, 2012, 12:37 pm

@Rip the Hunter: Oh no, I never meant to imply that she would or should start charging into the front lines like some sort of warrior princess. I completely agree with you, and that's what I was trying to get at in in my own obscure way. I think it's good that she seems to be moving towards becoming more confident in herself if/when those rare situations arise.

Some words of a fan Hello, dear author of this marvelous comic. I want to you know that you render one of my dreams true by your efforts. I have been desperate when I saw Ulquiorra's death as we know he is likely the most deep character of all the story confounded.

The fact you dedicated your art to him is a honor, your comic is truly a masterpiece. I love the way you draw, and I often if it wasn't the original author of Bleach who did draw this, but after looking at the first pages of the story, I know what you did, and I almost dedicate you a cult for this.

Good luck to continue with the drawings, you must know that there will be always a fan to look after your story. I register in this site only for comment your comics.

@mugu: Oh wow, thank you so much ^_^

Hey. I read this whole comic yesterday, and that poster up there made me realize registering and favoriting would be easier than finding it every day to obsessively see if it has updated. I love this comic. I was so upset when that plot in Bleach ended. The one after it was uninteresting to me and had bland characters. I was excited to see how well thought out the storyline for your remake was, and the art is incredibly similar. Great freaking job! I can't draw manga for the life of me.
Anyway, really hoping this updates day after tomorrow like it's supposed to.

Want to add, I hated Orihime in the anime. She was annoying and useless, got int he way of things, and never seemed to learn anything. She was just stupid. This branch makes her into a more complex character that I can actually like.
So even more amazing work on your part, making me like a character I hated!

Reply Rip the Hunter, August 23rd, 2012, 12:43 am

@BlixTwix: Oh believe me, I felt the EXACT same way about Orihime for a REALLY long time. Back when the Arrancar Arc was still barely starting, I was a big IchiRuki fan, and wrote a long-winded story that culminated in Ichigo's Hollow form killing Orihime outright. I hated her that much. But then Ulquiorra happened and I was like "Mother of God, there actually is a good character under all the Ichigo-obsession!" Then Ulquiorra died and a small part of my soul went with him =___=;; Then the Redux happened XD

Glad you enjoy the doujin! Only 3 pages left to ink before I post!

Reply BlixTwix, August 23rd, 2012, 12:55 am

@Rip the Hunter:
Hooray! That means you're gonna get the deadline you set! Yay! I'm excited.

As soon as Orihime disappeared I was like, can't you just leave her? She'll be alright. She'll just complain and cry them to death.

Reply Rip the Hunter, August 23rd, 2012, 12:59 am

@BlixTwix: Baha yeah XD I felt kinda bad for Orihime cuz she really started to show her true character when Ulquiorra was around (first, standing up to him and Yammy and then taking a punch in the face for it...and oh lord that defiant look when Ulquiorra caught her in the Dangai! Ah!) but the fact that Ichigo went to school the whole next day, AFTER finding out she was gone, made me laugh anyway. I don't think I started to appreciate Orihime as a character until after Ulquiorra died. Sadly, his death was what got me back into Bleach after having quit when Nnoitra belted Chad, cuz I was so curious what had lead up to that moment. I was an UlquiHime shipper from then on. They're just so good for each other...they both bring out their best qualities. Ulquiorra is for Orihime what Rukia is for Ichigo...a stabilizing force, something to ground them and make them focus. I love it to pieces. I'm so excited about the original arc I have planned after the Aizen fight is over because of it...woo!

Reply BlixTwix, August 23rd, 2012, 1:24 am

I'm curious; How long do you expect this comic to go on for?

Reply Rip the Hunter, August 23rd, 2012, 7:06 am

@BlixTwix: No idea. 2-4 more years maybe.
