"Anyway though..." She said, cutting off any potential response, "Tomorrow will be a big step. I've spoken to Urahara-san about getting you a Gigai so you can be seen by normal folks. I wanted to get that for you before school started up again for me."
"You don't expect me to attend your school, do you?"
"What?" She was surprised, "No. But maybe you can come by during lunch once in a while?"
"...I suppose that wouldn't be unreasonable." He pushed himself to sit up a little more than before, "Then there's only one last thing to do before going back to sleep."
"What's that?"
The Espada brought his hand up under her chin and touched her lower lip with his thumb, just as he had done in Las Noches before descending below the dome. He then approached and pressed his mouth to hers, holding to her lips for a long time, drinking in every moment. Even as they kissed, he moved to pull her over his body and reached to pull the clean blankets overtop of them and wedged one of his legs between hers. The girl was blushing profusely, but her arms came up around his head and kept him close. When they finally parted again, they looked directly into one another's eyes, surrendering everything into that moment.
Orihime smiled, "Things are going to get pretty interesting from now on."

(As of 6/9/13, ALL CHAPTERS right to the end are posted on )

Well I'm sad the Redux doujin is over. I enjoyed so much seeing each chapter uploaded. Your drawings are amazing! Even this chapter I had to pause every once in a while and just look at the drawings because Orihime looked adorable and the way her hair fell just made her look perfectly beautiful or that the way you drew Ulquiorra was flawlessly in character. I will miss this immensely, but I look forward to seeing the rest of the story on Thank you for all the time and effort and patience you've put into this work.

Dawwww Worst. Birthday. News. Ever. But I can certainly understand where you're coming from. I look forward to reading it as you put it up on Fanfiction. Good luck to you in everything you do from now on.

I have to say, I REALLY like the roughness of these; they seem to give the comic it's own sense of character.

Your style's thoroughly improved as well; overall I reckon this's been a pretty awesome learning experience for ya, and an enjoyable ride for the rest of us.

Thanks for stickin' with this project so long, it's been fun to watch you grow throughout.

No regrets! Hi Rip, this is going to be a long post (but your used to that from me :P), so let me say this to you ... you should have no regrets!
You’re work is always awesome, this chapter included. Your drawing is beautiful and even the ending as it is here, even though it is not the ending you planned, really works. I can understand that you might not be very happy about it, since every creator struggles to reach their own standard, but if there had to be a unforeseen ending, then this was it. I love the 'open' ending as it is now, were you can just create the rest of the story in your dreams.
I will love reading the rest of your story on fanfiction just as much as I would have been reading the doujin. Don’t feel bad about changing your plans in this regard. Even if you would try to continue while not feeling good about it, you would only make yourself miserable. I think I speak for everybody when I say that we do not want that for you. For us, your readers, it is more important that you stay true to yourself. We might not know you personally, but the dedication and passion for your work, as well as your creativity and spirit, have always shown through. That is what makes your creations as great as they are, whatever they are.

As soon as I finish with the BR story on ff I will check out your other work. If its anything that is up my alley, then you can be sure to hear from me some more :P
Be well and have a great summer!

Happy and Sad Hello Rip,

I am happy that you made your decision. I am happy reading and seeing this chapter, it is wonderfully drawn (as expected) but I am feeling sad at the same time.
But the best things are bitter sweet when they are coming to end and so I am looking forward to read the rest of the Redux on as you are a excellent writer as well.

All other things I already have told you and I only can agree with the things written in the other comments.

Thank you again for your wonderful work, especially the UlquiHime drawings, and I will watch out for your new and own stuff on DA.

O.O I love that ur still writing but u stopped drawing at the best part X3!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reply Deonis, June 8th, 2013, 12:42 pm

Good luck with your own story, Rip. I've thoroughly enjoyed this Alt-universe of Bleach and it definitly holds up against the real thing. I'm sure that your next work will be great as well.

Reply AmyaUrufu, June 8th, 2013, 7:55 pm

It's Official for me... I have decided that in my mind, I have rendered the actual Bleach fictional and your's will be the real damn Bleach. This is how it should've been. How it could've been. I'm annoyed by it since Ulqui was killed off in the arc, and I couldn't move past Aizen's defeat. So to me, my dear and imaginative friend... this is what it should be.
I will never be able to thank-you for putting what could've been up. Damnit, Orihime deserved someone in the end. If Ulqui doesn't truly come back, I can see her just letting herself get pushed into the background. No, no she deserved so much better. And as far as I'm concerned, IchiHime... he's like a cyst to her well-being, constantly tugging and agonizing her into complacency. UlquiHime, now that pairing is magical to me. And you've simply reaffirmed my feelings into fruition. They deserve each other.
And furthermore, I think I speak for a lot of people when I say it. To hell with Shounen animes. God, they lack so much realism.
But in any case, thank-you, Rip. Thank-you for ending this on such a good note.
Much love and warm regards,

It's the end of an era. The closing of this chapter, and the opening of the new one.

I thank you, so much for posting your story here, to share with us. You've given us so much new perspective on what could have, no. What SHOULD have happened.

I thank you for taking us on a journey that was nothing but incredible, with no disappointments whatsoever, each chapter leaving us wanting more.

And I thank you for creating this in the first place, because I speak for myself, and I'm sure this goes for everyone when I say that our eyes simply light up every time we saw that a new chapter of Redux has been posted.

I thank you, so very much.

Farewell, and may life bring you more good fortune.

Yes, I was hoping he'd kiss the lady before hibernating for another three days. I was also going to ask if he could remove his facial markings for going out on the town, but having a gigai would take care of that. Ahh, I wish we could see what he'd look like with it :I Probably the same but less stand-outy.

Ooooh man, suddenly Orihime has a boyfriendo who she kisses with passionately, her best buddy lady is going to be FLIPPING OUT I'd imagine! XD

Reply Rip the Hunter, June 8th, 2013, 10:48 pm

@Doodlebot117: The end of the chapter is written in my first comment, and he kisses her quite enthusiastically before they both go to sleep.

As for Chizuru (unless you mean Tatsuki?) yes, she does get all huffy and puffy about Ulquiorra when she first meets him XD (Tatsuki flips her shit too, but not for the same reasons hah) That'll be in the manuscript, once finally stops being retarded so I can finish posting it. I've got another 60+ chapters to post!

Reply Doodlebot117, June 8th, 2013, 11:17 pm

@Rip the Hunter: I did read that delectable little ending blurb! X3 That's how I knew he kissed her! And got to some pretty nice cuddling too.

And with that I remember there's Tom-boy friend who is good friend and protective for the right reasons. And then there was that other female classmate that I never really understood that seemed possessive of 'Hime's body rather than being a friend :I I will be so happy to see her spurned.

Oooh! You already retooled the written chapters and they're all ready for teh post-pacolypse? Winning!!

Reply Rip the Hunter, June 9th, 2013, 12:05 am

@Doodlebot117: Yeah, Tatsuki is the tom-boy friend that protects her from perverts and beat up Ichigo when Orihime went missing XD Chiziru is the lesbian that, as you describe, possesses Orihime moreso than being her friend.

And yes, all the chapters, right through the finale are ready to go online and be read. I just can't get to cooperate with me so I can get them online. It's really starting to get me angry >=/

Reply Doodlebot117, June 9th, 2013, 1:05 am

@Rip the Hunter: *cocks a shotgun* Mr. better get his crap together quickly here, or I'll have no trouble rounding up a posse to make sure it gets done *srs bsns face*

Thank you for your hard work! I understand loosing the drive for fanfics, so no anger of any kind from myself, and I'll bet none from other fanfiction writers either. Thank you for sharing this story in its entirety, in one form or another.

ACTUALLY HAPPT YOR RETIRING You have already saved bleach and suffered for Kubo's sins. So as I must finally say what i have thought since i started reading. YOU ARE WWWWAAAAAAAAYYYYY TO TALENTED TO BE FIXING STORIES YOU MUST BUILD YOUR OWN. go on and achieve greatness rip. You deserve to have your own comic series ,novel, tv show or Movie or whatever you want and you should be getting phat paid too. As the joker said if your good at something why do it for free.

Bye Author Bye Author

I always wonder what would happen if they got together now I know

I loved this comic and I am very sad that it is ending

Goodbye Author

Reply Marth, April 18th, 2014, 7:19 am

it's still there Well I might be a little late for waving good bye, but I bring good news. It's still there!
I just found this Doujin some days ago and it perfectly fascinated me so I could deal with my own bleach-mess WAY better!
Redux starts about the moment I quit reading long ago for some reasons, but having the story still in my head lacking a good end so badly, you really picked me up where l got stuck and made all the lose ends come together!
You completed my idea of bleach with this Doujin! Thank you.

When i first heard about the new arc I was wondering what the hell could come next and why such a big thing doesnt deserve it's end.
Things that are continued and continued forever usually get stuck for either author or reader will stop putting his/her heart into since you seem to have feld like that for the original, i understand very well that you decided to stop.
But the thing you created is still big *o*

Reply vixenexiv, April 20th, 2014, 9:10 am

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this doujin you have so beautifully drawn & written.
It saddens me greatly to see the illustrations end, but i can understand the lack of motivation *as i have come to the same wall =(*

Its a hard thing to say goodbye too, & will be greatly missed by so many people.
But what you offered us with your beautifully crafted pages will not be forgotten.
I am going to continue the written story on & after, will very much enjoy taking up your new stand alone project for reading.

beautiful work once again & thank you ^-^

Reply Rip the Hunter, April 21st, 2014, 12:58 am

@vixenexiv: If you're a fan of my kind of storytelling even half as much as you liked the way I did the doujin, you might like the original story I'm doing. It's all in color and I just posted chapter 6 earlier today.

Reply Katherine Pierce, May 19th, 2014, 4:24 am

Wish you the Best!! @Rip the Hunter:
I straight up love you. You are talented, kept the characters extremely in character to the point of making them who they SHOULD have been aka Orihime being a strong capable woman instead of a sexist weak stereotype, and most of all you redeemed Bleach!! I get sad thinking of how Bleach never brought back Ulquiorra or made Orihime who she should've been then I think of you and am like TRUE BLEACH MANGA FIXED IT, NEVER MIND. Good luck on your future endeavors you amazing warrior <3

Reply VientoRafaal, November 5th, 2014, 7:25 pm

NO ICHI/HIME! I never did like Ichi/Hime, except if the story was totally AU and the author could actually make it work. It's wonderful to see Orihime finally, FINALLY getting her head out of her sorry ass and acting like the strong woman she really is! Btw, might wanna check out A Protector's Pride on, especially chapter 4, Will to Attack. Orihime has Yammy running scared! All by herself! Has me in stitches every time!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Dear me but I loved this! So much! My favourite chapter was definitely 30!! and despite it not being "finished" I thought that was the cutest way to end the comic! I really love your work, I cannot even begin to dream that I was this talented! I am going to go and read on fanfic! EXCITEMENT!!!

Reply eremiageorgiana, January 5th, 2017, 8:24 am

Thank you! That was the best doujin i have ever read!

I hope you continue with the remaining scenes QwQ

I must tell you I am speechless and am praising you for how incredibly related artwork you make of the males!!

I am so speechless with amazement!!

ABSOLUTE BEAUTY I found this comic this morning (can't believe I haven't found it before!) and have been sitting on my butt for too many hours, completely enthralled with each page.
Your humor, style, portrayal of characters, and story-telling is amazing and I'm completely blown back!
Your art has also improved SO MUCH from chapter to chapter.
You are incredible - I pray you continue this one day, though I am blessed for having been able to read this much.

Thank you so much!
