At the top panel, I am sure lots of IchiHime shippers were like OMG WE REJOICE! SEE HOW WE REJOICE!!! THEIR LOVE IS SO TRUE HE KNOWS WHERE SHE IS THOUGH HE'S PANTS AT READING REIATSU EVEN AT FULL POWER!1
Ichigo used Hammer of Logic (+1). It's super effective! >.>
Tsukishima's looking less and less pretty. And is it just me, or is Kubo making Inoue extra moe? Either way, I love the expression on her face. <3
FUCK YEAH IT'S BADASS!INOUE. ♥♥♥ JFC I LOVE HER SO MUCH :(
This made me laugh hysterically the first time I saw it and I don't think it's in any danger of NOT having that effect anytime soon. I LOVE INOUE, HAVE I MENTIONED? >_> OKAY, JUST CHECKING.
Waaaah, Inoue is strategising and shit. :x :x :x I love that she's not all, "oh no, I wonder if I can stop this guy!" She's completely sure she can stop him; she's just not sure of the method. That's my girl. :3
At first I was like DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD:
And then I was like "Kinney help me, I fucking ship it."
He didn't just stab her, either, he sliced down from the top -- you can see the mark in her clothing along her shoulder, plus her hair's flying off to the side, detached. I guess Tsukishima doesn't like arms any more than Kubo does?
D: She felt it too, poorest. T_T IIRC Tsukishima's Fullbring is called "Book of the End"; I wonder what its meaning is. Wild guess: it turns the person affected by the Fullbring into the avatar of a character that Tsukishima can manipulate according to a plot he devises in his own mind. That is, if we assume that his reading a book (and getting mad for losing his place) and earlier jeering about Inoue's lines not being good enough for a novel are significant beyond their situational meaning. Death Note Lite, in other words.
She is so adorable. I can just hear them using a Dodo Dance or Splaaash Boogie theme when they animate this. :3
One of the things I love most about this arc is that every chapter has Ichigo's funny face. ♥
...see? Totally being manipulated somehow. Whatever Tsukishima did obviously has the power to influence Inoue's mind so profoundly that she believes that whatever she's thinking is coming from her.
That means that since Ishida actually got sliced by Book of the End, he might be even worse off? OMG. OMG. THAT BACK ALLEY ICHI/ISHI PORN I STOPPED WORKING ON WHEN ISHIDA GOT HURT IS SUDDENLY LOOKING PROMISING AGAIN. AND MINDFUCKY. OMG. >_>
Damn you, Chad and Inoue. When will you learn NOT TO LIE TO ICHIGO, UGH. Now he's going to go and do something reckless.
OK OK GUYS GUYS GINJOU IS OBVIOUSLY BLUSHING HERE OK.
IN THE PREVIOUS PANEL, HE WAS NOT BLUSHING. IN THE PANEL AFTER, HE IS NOT BLUSHING EITHER. SO THIS IS OBVIOUSLY NOT AN ALCOHOL-RELATED BLUSH (SEEING AS HE IS NOT EVEN DRINKING ANY MORE, FOR HIS GLASS IS EMPTY). CONSIDERING WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT, IT IS OBVIOUSLY A BLUSH OF YAOINESS AND KUBO IS OBVIOUSLY A GIANT TROLLFACE WHO DELIBERATELY DID NOT PENCIL IN THE (OSTENSIBLY ALCOHOL-RELATED) BLUSHING SO HE CAN LATER CLAIM IT WAS AN HONEST MISTAKE WHILE ICHI/GINJOU FANS' HEADS EVERYWHERE EXPLODED FROM SUBTEXTY GLEE.
OMG I LOVE HIM. XDDDDDDD
...SEE. LIKE I SAID RECKLESS. LOOK AT HIM. OMG HOW IS HE SO BEAUTIFUL *_____________________*
DUN DUN DUN! The plot continues to thicken! I am not entirely convinced that Ginjou isn't lying about their purpose and mission, but it's also possible that Tsukishima represents a breed of Fullbring user who don't wish to give up their powers. Then again, why would he ever have been an ally of Ginjou's? SO MANY QUESTIONS.
