^ A while back, Kubo said he'd delve into the backstories of several Bleach characters at some point. We got confirmation a few days ago that he'd start this week. That's what we're talking about--Gaiden means "origin" IIRC.
Also, I merged the two threads to keep things in one place.
Starky-08, how can you be like Ichigo AND Vegeta!? Split personality?
Tsuki - Someone translated the current Jump's table of contents, and Kubo said on that page he would start it this week. It was put out well after we got the chapter--I think it might have been yesterday, now that I think about it.
At any rate, I hope he's read our lists.

Quoted for Truth, the dude is freaking awesome, plus considering his past is mysterious Kubo can be flexible and add in other characters like Isshin or Yoruichi (though not extensively, but still enough that we know their base).Quote:
Urahara is not my favorite character, but I do like him. I would love to see more information about him. With the most recent spoiler concerning a certain character being former 12th division lieutenant, it is likely that we will also learn something about the captain of that squad at the time .
SIDENOTE: I don't know who is in charge of smilies, but it would be nice if some new Bleach-related ones were added.
All I can say.... Why not the Vizard... (Since Kubo is a lil' bit interested in them this while xD)... Plus; Urahara & Yoruichi... and I hesitate between Aizen and Isshin..
urahara is my dude....the gaiden has to be about him, it has to be!!! i get a vash the stampede vibe from him....acts like a goof but is serious when he needs to be and is insanely strong....just from the face that ikkaku made when ichigo mentioned him you have to imagine how great he is....I mean, most of the freaking plot revolves around him in some form or other....if it wasnt for him, aizen wouldnt have the hogyouku, ichigo would still be a yelp, gigais would suck, ishiin wouldnt be able to hide his powers (gigais again), etc. etc.
he is so important that his gaiden would answer millions of questions (<--obvious exaggeration)
what i would like for kubo to do is make a mini-story of all the captains of old, i mean before the new captains came in: who was in before? why were they ousted? etc

So it's a little more generic than an origin, but it's probably the perfect way to do an origins story with the scope of a manga.
