Honey Dish Rhapsody: A Graphic Novel Tite Kubo and Matsubara Makoto
“Rukia makes sweets for her brother but upon learning he likes spicy food from Renji, she gives the sweets to other people and enlists Ichigo’s help to cook him some spicy curry, the likes of which Rukia ate back in Ichigo’s house. However, Unohana intervenes and prevents Rukia from giving the curry to Byakuya, instead asking her to make something that will be gentle on Byakuya’s stomach. Rukia finally makes some rice porridge for Byakuya, who is pleased with Rukia’s efforts.”
Line from the novel: (read the translated novel here)
Ichigo’s voice… slowly… drifted away…
When he finished doing the dishes and turned to look at her, she’d already fallen asleep.
(…What a happy expression you have there), he thought as he looked at her peaceful face. He felt deeply that… he was so fortunate to come to Soul Society, that he was so fortunate to have something to protect.
I still love that she’s wearing the dress Ishida made her on the cover… /totally misses the point or something lskdmfds
