Here my version :3
omg i think this one is my favorite.
RyuuGiri: Deal with it! >:D
The line by line translation of Bleach 537 is out. You can read it here: http://mangahelpers.com/t/badkarma/releases/37920
The most significant difference between the scans and the translation is this bit right here:
…You’ve returned, Haschwalth
And what of your objective?
That’s the line the scans translated as “and the subject?” which everyone took to mean that Uryuu had been subjected to re-education or brainwashing. While it’s still possible — we don’t know how Haschwald convinced Uryuu to join, after all — it looks much less likely now.
That still doesn’t mean Uryuu’s betrayed his friends, of course. Yhwach has the ability to take Uryuu’s Quincy powers away any time he wants to pull another selection. I suspect Uryuu is just playing along until he finds out what he needs or can get the drop on Yhwach.
Most likely, though, we won’t be getting a “come back to yourself, this isn’t you, damn it!” type fight with Ichigo or a cool-down hug from Orihime.
Well, I knew and said I was jumping to conclusions. I wonder where the heck everyone else got “the subject” from?
I just checked the official ViZ translation on their digital Weekly Shounen Jump, and they used “the subject,” too.
Interesting. But, yeah, lot of compelling possibilities for the “WHY.” Actual betrayal isn’t one of them, lmfao.
Prince of Light ha? Its kinda cool…
I just wanna color our precious quincy <3
Color : me / Panel : Bleach 537 - Tite Kubo
IshiHime the Best!
This is Ishida, remember? The guy who’s always prepared, who plans ahead, who actually has a spare cape in case of emergencies. This is the guy who forgave a shinigami for running him through with his sword, and remained friends with him. So why the fuck would Kubo write him as a traitor and…
I have a hard time believing that people who have been reading Bleach for years, who have seen Ishida come through for his friends over and over, who watched him lose a limb on the Dome and keep fighting with his off-hand, who watched him walk up to a blood-thirsty monster and take it by the hand because he knew his friend was somewhere under that mask and that friend would never forgive himself for what he was about to do, that these same readers now somehow think that Uryuu would really honestly betray these same friends and his grandfather’s teaching for… what exactly?
Bleach readers, if you think Uryuu is truly a traitor, please engage your brains before you embarrass yourselves further.
Yes, we’ve just seen Uryuu welcomed into the ranks of the Vandenreich. By the guy who killed his mother.
At this point I’m not going to debate whether he’s actually been brainwashed/re-educated, is playing the double agent in order to learn their weaknesses for Urahara, or is pretending to join them in order to effect his own vengeance for his mother’s death. Any of those options is 100% more likely than Ishida being an out-and-out traitor.
That is all. For now.
honestly this just reinforces what I’ve long, long felt and wanted to post about
That’s it’s such a HUGE SHAME that Ichigo and Uryuu weren’t friends as kids.
Think about it. Both of them probably suffered because they could see ghosts/Hollows and had no one else their age with…
MUST. DRAW. THIS.
Even if my art is awful as shit.
*adds in the To Do List*
OKAY WAIT A FUCKING MINUTE
THEY BOTH HAD HAPPY FAMILIES FOR EIGHT YEARS
WHY WEREN’T THEY FRIENDS
The way events resolved themselves likely made the prospect of a relationship between the couples/families too awkward.
Ryuuken surely had regrets for not stepping in and saving Masaki from the Hollow bite, and then there’s the whole “what could have been aspect” that isn’t real conducive to lively dinner conversation. Plus, Masaki’s infection & departure represented a huge blow to the Ishida clan; one they probably didn’t want to be reminded of.
Masaki went off to uni, started dating Isshin, and they made their own life for themselves. Small clinic doctor and Karakura General surgeon/president probably moved in different circles too.
I do wonder though just when Ryuuken gave up the Quincy stuff. Now that we know Katagiri was frail, I doubt he’d have let her go out and “sortie” even if a Shinigami got killed. And if Ryuuken ever went out to take care of Hollows I wonder if he ever ran into Masaki? You know she probably would have waved at him.
We still don’t know the whole story of what happened to the Ishidas so maybe there’s more to tell, but just given what we know, and with Ryuuken being Ryuuken, it was probably easier for everyone to just live their own lives.
Ahhhh, all good points. While it’s sad to think of Ryuuken maintaining absolutely no contact (last Quincy! friendly enough!), he did kick her out in order to “definitively part” with her. Awkward dinnertime conversation indeed.
I do wonder just what Katagiri’s condition was, and for how long. Plus, we don’t know how Ryuuken’s mother died and under what circumstances. Just what caused his animosity toward Souken? It could easily be his failure to be there, but he seems to have his distaste for the Quincy and then a separate disdain for Souken… but that may be reading too much into it, and it may be a culmination of never being there + Souken pushing the Quincy stuff onto his son while knowing Ryuuken opposed it. That’d be more than enough for “that old man.”
Still, it’s such a shame ):
Ishida-kun...if you ever change your mind, tell me any time, okay? I'll be waiting for you.
