    You can make a thread either in theater or in Bleach Databooks, or if you don't feel like it, I'll do it a bit later (and I'll move posts from here there) ^^


    So.. is this pre-Arrancar arc or during the two timeskip years? They say Szayel's "body" is the human one, so did he come to SS to get his human body, or is this like a resurrected Szayel that came for his arrancar body? o_O Either way, it's a pretty good read.
    What you guys think, what trial are they talking about?

    The story takes place during 17 months gap after Aizen's defeat.

    The last line confuses me. I figured the corpse they have stored was from when Mayuri killed Szayel in Hueco Mondo but Szayel mentions the Living World.
    The last line indeed makes it confusing, hmm... From the overall sound of it, it seems like this Szayel is only like an "experiment" of someone and it'\s not actual Szayel... although he seems to have his own mind and all...


    The other stories also sound interesting, if they get translated to english (or I actually learn japanese by that time) I'm most looking forward to the part with Aizen I'm sorry I kind of miss him
    ...oh wait, this is Narita. The stories will have some sort of a connection that will become clear at the end.. could the female hollow from the abandoned hospital be the underling of Azashiro Kenpachi?


    Also love the covers ^___^ The arrancar (?) on the second volume reminds me of Cross's Grave of Maria

    Re: (novel) Spirits Are Forever With You

    Translations of the first 3 previews are somewhere in Bleach Asylum's thread about the novel. I'm too lazy to dig them up to be honest

    I'm not even going to try to understand the Szayel situation before reading the whole book lol. I heard Narita's storytelling is usually quite confusing.

    edit: I changed Vol.2's summary a bit. I reread it and the underling thing was more my assumption than actual fact >.<

    Re: (novel) Spirits Are Forever With You

    Don Kanonji, who is the main character of this novel, isn't one of my favorite characters but nonetheless it will be an interesting read. I wonder if Narita had a consultation with Kubo before he wrote this novel, there're confusing parts like Szayel thinking he died in living world. Aizen's talk with Azashiro Kenpachi is another part I'm curious about, can it be that Kubo is foreshadowing Aizen's escape?

    New Bleach light novels, some of the premises some interesting. That Kenpachi would probably make a decent OVA.

    From Bleachasylum forum:

    Hmm, so many info. There's something about Hitsugaya, Rukia and mention of Zaraki fighting the 8th which means, that man challenged and know Azashirou Kenpachi!?

    Because from what we got, it's:

    ● 7th Kenpachi: The one that looked like Ginjo and has a Bankai with soul sucking ability and he's the one mentioned talking to Kyouraku about Vasto Lorde and their ability.

    ● 8th Kenpachi: Azashirou Souya or the one with the materialized Zanpakutou, Uro Shakuro (maybe water and rock-based Zan with fusion-like Bankai? Thanks to Ishida).

    ● 9th Kenpachi: The vice-captain to Azashirou? And killed by the 10th, Gorosuke Kiganjou.

    ● 10th Kenpachi: Kiganjou Kenpachi, the lazy-ass 11th division captain (I think he's the first with the bad habit, even Zaraki is decent in attending meetings and obeying old man's orders).

    ● 11th Kenpachi: The cool elder guy we came to love today, Zaraki Kenpachi.

    Many more is coming coz novels are already out right now and they are working on some translations.
    BTW anyone knows if that stuff is aproved by Kubo himself???


    And we have some more of stuff from novels

    *I understand why Shunsui drinks. To live that long and to have friends die around seems more like a curse. 250 yrs ago He witness his friend 7th Kenpachi die. 101 yrs ago his VC Lisa goes MIA.

    *Kenpachi has gotten stronger since his fight with Nnoitra and Yammy. His new eye patch absorb 20 times the reiatsu than his previous one. Kendo can defeat anyone(lol).

    *Azashiro was so powerful that the Royal Guards were task with capturing him the first time, but he was defeated by kendo

    *Shino Academy teaches bad and out dated info to its students. They made all their students believe that only Royal Guard members could defeat a Menos Grande.

    *the 7th Kenpachi was invited to become a Royal Guard but he turned down the offer.(Damn he would still be alive if he did)

    *Nurse arrancar has a spider-woman resureccion

    *Szayel has a new resureccion form(sequnda etapa of some sort) and was privaron espada long long time ago

    More incoming...

    Re: [NOVEL] Spirits Are Forever With You

    There's another novel in the making, written by Matsubara Makoto. (She also wrote the Honey Dish Rhapsody novel.)
    Here's an excerpt of it:
    Spoiler show

    thanks to Fendi @BA

    The excerpt is about Rukia deciding to cut her hair the day before her promotion to Vice-Captain.

    FYI, this new novel and Spirit Are Always With You are part of the Missing Link Project.

    Those are light novels, books. Kubo drew the covers and there are also some sketches and illustrations made by him.
