『 信玄との恋のあらすじ 』`Shingen to no koi no arasuji

Summary of Love with Shingen

Being swept away by enemy general, a hostage life begin. Using sweet whispering as if breathing as way of persuading, I’m being trifled by the adult bargaining/tactics… [I cannot keep going without loving you, even if whatever happens to me beyond this point -] When I touched/felt his ‘strong as much as sad’ way of life, which is hidden underneath his frivolous attitude- a love against fate begins.


Shingen [  …Come here. Let me teach you the tactics/strategies of an adult love. ]

The person who made his advances/passes (on you) is the enemy general, Shingen Takeda!? Crossing over 500 years time, a love against fate begins -

??? [ You there, please wait a while. ]

??? [ That’s right, (it’s) you. Thank you for stopping. ]

MC [ Do you need something? ]

??? [ I want to inform you that I have lost/drop something. ]

??? [ I went off dropping/losing in love (with you). Could you take responsibility and pick it up? ] 

LOL

Through the fluent pick up lines, the gear of fate goes in disorder and confusion - !

??? [ You are Mimi, aren’t you? ]

Being surrounded by lots of men, I’ve been taken away/kidnapped afterward.

Shingen [ Yo! You came along nicely, Mimi. ]

Takeda and Uesugi army stronghold, Kasugayama Castle.

A hostage life full of sweet up and downs and dangerous bargaining/strategy opens up its curtain -

Among that, the distance with Shingen is getting nearer little and little somehow……

Shingen [ It’s exactly as I stated. Mimi, you’ll become the piece of war. ]

MC [ A piece you said…what are you going to do? ]

Shingen [ I will take you along to the battlefield, to draw Oda army out. ]

After the trace of mask of his frivolous attitude being thrown off, the ferocity, fang of Tiger of Kai shines through.

Although I try to escape by taking advantage on the confusion of battle, arrows that came flowing hinders my way.

??? [ What are you doing! ]

(Huh…..?)

At the next moment, I was thrust away, and being stopped by a wide chest.

Shingen [ Ugh… ]

(Is he getting injuries….in order to protect me?)

When I stare at Shingen’s back who’s heading for war, a different feeling starting to grow now -

However…the heavy secret held by Shingen tears apart the faint relationship miserably.

(Noooo don’t say this is about his diseaseeee)

Shingen [ Good news. I have decided to let you go. ]

Shingen [ As for your role as piece of war, it’s over. ]

Being thrust away, I’ve been send back to Azuchi, though, my conscious feeling is accelerating…..

(If Shingen-sama is dying just like this, I’ll end up regretting it for the rest of my life.)

(I have to think. What can I do…..?)

The fleeting feeling, changing to a strong bond at the battlefield -

Shingen [ I notice it ever since on the way. However this bet would turn out, I’ll be the one that become the loser. ]

Shingen [ When I kissed you, I knew that my feeling could not be stopped. ]

When we resolved ourselves to survive together, the future of a blank paper is opened up -

Shingen [ There is no objection. Once this battle is over…..I’ll sweep you away again. ]

Shingen [ You can only reply with『Yes』. It is not necessary for you to feel that you need to *draw out Oda army. ]

*confuse~ Need to read for context since 引け目を感じる direct meaning is ‘feeling small and inferior’. Why is the need for MC to feel inferior to Oda-gun tho? So I take the verb 引く(hiku) which means to draw (attention).

Shingen [ I have already made my decision when I make you mine with my selfishness. ]

(Even I already made my decision.)

(From this moment, I will be by Shingen-sama’s side without leaving, and supporting him as much.)

Shingen [ ….*You surprised me with your raid. ]

Shingen [ I’m no match for you, you know? ]

*急襲 (kyūshū) = raid, assault, pounce, descent & 恐れ入った (osoreitta) = to be sorry, obliged, amazed, surprised, in awe, grateful, embarrassed. From the CG, somehow MC makes surprise attack on Shingen I guess, lead to my interpretation of the translation~

Overcoming difficulties again and again, even run through 500 years time, it would be wrapped up in steady and firm love…..

I am not a Tokyo ghoul fan but I still feel the need to put this in my blog
this attitude is downright disgusting, nasty and 100% unacceptable, honestly I feel so bad for Ishida!

I don’t know the man that well, but I’ve seen him interact with his fans on twitter before in such a fun and respectful way, I’ve also been here when he took the time to draw a tribute art of one of his fans when she was killed in a tragic accident (Christina Grimme)

and regardless of any of this, no author or content creator ever should have to experience such harassment for a valid decision they made in their own story, bad or good, I won’t understand for the life of me why some fans feel so entitled to someone else’s work like this, especially if it’s over something as ridiculous as shipping! being simply disappointed is an entirely different thing!

what’s ironic about all of this, is that 90% of these fans don’t even buy and support his work legally, this harassment started from international fans before the chapter was even released officially in Japan, and this alone is disrespectful enough, I understand a lot of us don’t have the means to support official releases due to different reasons, but the least we can do is not act like entitled pricks over it

I’m addressing this because for one, it’s horrible! and second, I don’t think the snk fandom is above this at all, I’m just glad Isayama doesn’t have any public social media account and I hope it stays that way

things like this makes me almost hate shipping culture because it’s the main source of all of this, people just don’t know when to stop, close their laptops and go take a walk

Ishida Akira (Yakumo/Kikuhiko) x Hayashibara Megumi (Miyokichi)

Interview and text: Maeda Hisashi

—The two of you have acted together on many different shows, beginning with Slayers where to you played Lina and Xellos, and Neon Genesis Evangelion where you were Ayanami Rei and Nagisa Kaworu. How did you feel when you found out that you would be acting together in this show?

Ishida: When I found out that Hayashibara-san would be my counterpart, I was like “Oh boy, what a frightening partner…” In a variety of ways.

Hayashibara: What’s this? Where? And how come? …like this, you mean? (chuckles)

Ishida: Oh, no no (chuckles). As everyone is well aware, you’re an incredible actor, right? Such a person is probably strict with themselves, and also with those acting beside them. At least, that’s what I figured.

Hayashibara: “That’s what I figured”…could you make sure that’s in large, bold font? (chuckles)

Ishida: Like, should I try to fake it, with my level of ability, you’d see right through me. You’d see through me no matter what I did, so I put myself on guard right from the start.

Hayashibara: Say what?!

Ishida: It’s especially true for this anime, but even for the other shows we’ve worked on together, I’ve always thought that you’re someone who makes the people you are acting with rather tense, no matter what the atmosphere of the studio seems like on the surface.

Hayashibara: Is that so…how interesting!

Ishida: “There’s so much pressure just in the fact that I have to do rakugo…and on top of that, I’ll be working with Yamadera (Kouichi)-san and Hayashibara-san, huh? Good heavens…” That’s pretty much what it felt like (chuckles).

Hayashibara: As for me, I was offered the part only after Yamadera-san, Ishida-san and Seki (Tomokazu)-kun had all been confirmed. So somewhere in the back of my mind, I feel that, if it hadn’t been you and Yamadera-san in those roles, then it probably wouldn’t have been me either. I’m not sure what it is, perhaps the balance of our voices, or our mentalities, or perhaps the wavelength we’re on, or our bonds in our previous lives (chuckles), but we just match, somehow. It was the same when I did Cowboy Bebop. Ishizuka (Unshō)-san and Yamadera-san were chosen first, and then I came in as the voice between them.

—After you started recording, could you tell us about what you sensed and took from each other’s acting?

Ishida: It was like Miyokichi was moving the story along at my pace, in a good way. Or perhaps, I felt that it was good that they met when the story was moving along. And just as I was becoming comfortable with the atmosphere of the studio where we were recording Rakugo Shinjuu, Kikuhiko was becoming comfortable with Miyokichi—this is probably something that men tend to do, but it felt a bit like a part of me was standing somewhat above her, looking down on her. I’m really glad that there was such an overlap, where the way that my character became familiar with his partner reflected my own experience in the studio.

Hayashibara: As for me, rather than being able to ‘take from’ Ishida-san’s acting, it was all I could do to try and grasp who Miyokichi was. I’m sure that Ishida-san and Yamadera-san both struggled with and spent a lot of time thinking about their own characters as well, but from my perspective, they were already Kiku-san and Sukeroku through and through. Just how could I slip into the space between them as Miyokichi? I wasted a lot of time during the recordings for the first half of the series trying to figure that out.

____Was Miyokichi a difficult character to play?

Hayashibara: Just the other day, I saw the latest episode on TV, and even then I found myself reflecting a little, like “Oh dear, was this correct…?” Which is really unusual for me (chuckles). There’s a line where Miyokichi says “I’m stupid, so…” but what I took from it was “This girl is no idiot, is she?” How much of that is just her acting out the part, and how much of it is real idiocy? It was pretty difficult treading the fine line between the two. And Kiku-san probably loves that idiocy in the way that a man loves “a woman who is just a little more broken than he is.” Whatever he says, he sees through the way she acts and what he finds on the other side, he loves even more. Or something like that. In playing Miyokichi, I was caught between the two (acting vs. real idiocy). It was in that episode 9 scene with Sukeroku that she finally settled on one side. That line of “Did something happen? I’ll hear you out…”—at first, I was directed to play it more listlessly, as if I’d lost everything. But Kubota Haruko-sensei, the mangaka, was actually at the studio when we recording that episode, and she said: “That line actually represents the point where she starts taking her revenge.” With that, the direction changed again, and I thought to myself “She really is no idiot.” It was then that I finally felt I’d grasped Miyokichi, just a little. Nevertheless, I honestly believe that there are points where her actions are motivated purely because she’s in love, and it’s precisely because she’s a woman who’s almost impossible to grasp that Kiku-san, too, is captivated by her. That’s right, a woman that Kiku-san would really fall in love with—just what kind of woman is that? In pondering that very question, I definitely used parts of my brain that I’d never used before. …hey Kiku-san, what exactly do you love about Miyokichi? (chuckles)

Ishida: (chuckles) Well, if I pick up the thread from what Hayashibara-san has just said, then Kiku has probably never thought that Miyokichi was an idiot. He knows that she’s someone who has used a range of wiles to survive, to get to where she is now. And because he sees her in this way, what he feels for her for her isn’t the kind of romantic love held by the average, modern high schooler who’s in love with his or her classmate. But when she’s there beside him, he finds himself responding to her allure. He’s a pitiful guy, after all. In that way, he lets himself be influenced by her, but at the same time, he’s cooly looking at himself, saying “This isn’t romantic love.” And he probably thinks of himself, of this person looking on so cooly, as “a real slime-ball,” too. But he is simply unable to throw away that feeling of comfort that he gets by being by her side. He’s a weak guy…or rather, an unfair one. In episode 8, he gets angry when he comes back from the regional tour and sees Sukeroku and Miyokichi in an embrace, doesn’t he? Personally, I don’t think he was that angry, not really (chuckles), but I also kind of understand why he was upset. Even though he didn’t regard himself as being in love, he gets irritated at the thought of parting with her. So, I also have to reflect on my performance, just like Hayashibara-san. That scene where Kiku says “I am (being a man). This is the greatest lie of my life”—when we recorded it, I went into the scene taking those words quite literally. But now that I think about it, it’s not like Kikuhiko was prepared to keep their relationship going—that kind of thought was probably in the back of his head, too. Hence, I’m sure that those words that he said to Sukeroku were, at some level, a lie aimed at deceiving himself as well.

Hayashibara: There are so many emotions on the other side of “I love you” that we no longer know which of them are right and which of them are wrong. In particular, in the middle part of the show, I felt like I was waiting for the directors’ guidance with regards to what was coming out of me naturally at that time. But if we think about it, that’s what real romantic love is like. It’s not like you’re reading out a love letter that expresses everything clearly in a set number of words. The attitude your partner takes at any particular point also changes the words you use, and it’s not as if it will play out the way you have planned. In that sense, even those elements of my performance that I thought may have been incorrect, may have been right as far as results go—I’ve been trying to think about it along those lines without trying to justify myself. Beyond that, all that remains is to leave it up to the viewers to decide how they feel about it.

—How do the two of you perceive Sukeroku?

Ishida: He’s someone who is real to the bone, with no artifice.

Hayashibara: Yup, I’m with you there. And that’s why he gets messed up (chuckles). Miyokichi envied him, just because he and Kiku-san got along too well. Something may have happened in Manchuria as well, but she simply has no interest in a guy who foolishly tries to woo her, so openly, too, despite knowing that she’s his master’s mistress (chuckles). In the end, a man like Kiku-san is more appealing to her—someone who fights to restrain himself, thinking “I can’t touch her because she’s my master’s,” but who gradually loses that fight and lays his hands on her. Hence, if Kiku-san hadn’t gotten involved with her, I don’t think she would have taken any interest in Sukeroku.

—And that did not change even after she took him back to her hometown?

Hayashibara: Because this was her revenge. But since Sukeroku just has so much warmth about him, I think that being with him may have felt comfortable to her. In that sense, she may have felt at times that he was causing her to forget (what she wanted). With Kiku-san, he’s so cold that she feels that she has to warm him up, but Sukeroku is just warm, unconditionally warm. Like the stomach of a golden retriever (chuckles). That kind of warm, comfortable feeling.

Ishida: I think that Kikuhiko has always been frustrated and envious of how Sukeroku found success with his completely different way of living, but if you ask me whether he felt something particular when he saw Sukeroku and Miyokichi’s together, then I suspect that he probably didn’t. In fact, given that he was, at that time, thinking that it wouldn’t be a good idea to keep dragging things out with Miyokichi in that way, it was like a godsend to him. Not that he’d say it, but I suspect that he probably felt something along the lines of “Thank you for creating the opportunity for me to break up with her.”

—As for Kikuhiko and Sukeroku, it was like they had a shared fate through rakugo, but it was ripped apart because of Miyokichi. How have you interpreted that aspect of the story?

Ishida: Kiku probably wouldn’t have ever imagined that, as a result of him dumping Miyokichi, that she would move to the countryside with Sukeroku. And there’s no way he would ever have wanted such an outcome.

Hayashibara: But if I look at it not from Miyokichi’s perspective but simply as a viewer, whether Miyokichi had been there or not, I feel that it would have been difficult for Sukeroku to continue doing rakugo in Tokyo. He would probably have distanced himself from Kiku-san, don’t you think?

Ishida: I suspect that Kikuhiko probably didn’t think of such a possibility. Sukeroku was getting a lot of backlash because of what he was doing, what he was aiming for, and a lot of problems were arising as a result. But fans were also full of praise for for his amazing performances. Hence, whilst it would have been best if Sukeroku did not cause any problems, but if he did, then Kikuhiko intended to continue backing him up. And I think there still was quite a way to go before he ran out of patience.

Hayashibara: I see…then Miyo-chan did indeed take Sukeroku away… That girl really is no idiot. The “revenge” that Kumota-sensei spoke about was that very act.

Meanwhile, all of a sudden, an arrangement put you to work as maid in Kojuro’s residence.

Inuchiyo (Maeda Toshiie)

Right after your reunion with Inuchiyo, your childhood friend, he changes into a cold person.

Due to his action, you manage to leave prison and work as a cook.

Genjirou (Sanada Yukimura)

You go to the shrine at the back of hill to perform your offering. Suddenly, a voice could be heard from inside the shrine. Looking into it, there was an injured samurai named [Genjirou]. Even if you feel he is likely to be dangerous especially he does not open his heart to you, you still take care of him. [Genjirou] who gradually recovering, starts to open his heart for you and decides to place himself in the city of Kyoto.

He is someone who cannot get through by common sense and his honest and straight trait always come to strike. While you are touching that undecorated honesty, your heart starts to stir up.


ALL 12 DONE!

I already make translation for the first 6 lords of 2nd chapter, so we just need to wait for second batch to come out tomorrow (there’s already new Saizo cg slot in tenka), then I’ll post them in one shot~

Morning Musume 13th gen interview (UTB+ March 2017)

(Translator’s note: This is chronologically the first interview 13ki had ever done, so there is information now known (i.e. Yokoyama’s blood type) that was not known at this point.)

We’re the 13th generation of Morning Musume!

Kaga Kaede x Yokoyama Reina

The 13th generation members decided upon are these two from Hello! Pro Kenshuusei! There’s a stark contrast between Kaga-chan’s 4 years of Kenshuusei and Yokoyama-chan’s 3 months, but it seems that Yokoyama-chan has an aggressive personality (laugh). They’re beginning to act more and more like generation mates. 

The uncertainty of debuting during the Kenshuusei days

— What was the initial reason why you joined the Kenshuusei?

Kaga: I’ve been watching Morning Musume since I was little, but in particular, when I saw the performance of “One Two Three” (‘12), everybody’s dancing and singing was amazing, and Sayashi Riho-san, the center, was really cool and left an impact on me. I admired that a girl in the same age group as me could dance so well. I went for the 11th generation auditions, failed partway through, and joined the Kenshuusei.

Yokoyama: I’ve liked Morning Musume since I was in sixth grade. Back then, I still viewed them from the perspective of a fan and never thought about wanting to become a member. When I entered junior high, I saw Morning Musume ‘14 being pranked on a TV show. It was a wake-up prank where everyone had to wake up and start singing and dancing immediately. When I watched that, even though everyone had just woken up, they danced crisply, sang properly, and smiled brightly. I thought that it would definitely be fun to join them. I took the first 13th generation audition (no passed applicants) and joined then.

you don't care about Ichigo's state after the war. IchiHime fans only care about the pairing and not the fact he's broken. He lost his hollow/quincy powers and is stuck at Karakura with nothing to look forward to and had to accept his circumstances. Wake up! Even non pairing fans can see this but all you care about is Inoue. Never Ichigo and his dreams.

AHHHHHHHH 

FINALLY 

FINALLYYYYYY 

FINALYYYYYYYYYYY 

MY FIRST REAL HATEFUL ANON ! All I got since the end of bleach was trolls and answering to trolls is no fun BUT HERE YOU ARE SALTY ICHIRUKI ANON . You’re my first and therefore me owning you on this one will always represent something special to me . 

Sooooo where do I begin ? 

Ichigo is broken after the war ? BITCH WHERE DO YOU FIND IDEAS LIKE THAT ? 

A little tip for your comprehension of Bleach : it’s not because a lot of Ichiruki shippers repeat something all day long that it means it’s true in the manga . 

Ichigo did not loose his hollow powers because ( and you’d know it if you had read bleach and not only ichiruki fanfictions  ) his hollow powers are ACTUALLY his shinigami powers . Zangetsu was his hollow all along and the man he called Old man Zangetsu is actually the embodiment of his quincy powers that were dormant inside of him all along . 


But in this last arc Ichigo learnt to accept his heritage . Both his shinigami powers ( that he got from his dad ) and his quincy powers ( that he got from his mom ) . And most of all he accepted that the hollow that was inside of him was not an antagonist to him but part of his very self , a representation of his shinigami powers . His hollow was his powers , a part of him , he had to understand and accept that to finally be able to accept himself . 

THIS moment is maybe the biggest character development ichigo had to went through . Since the beginning of the Vizards arc ichigo’s main struggle was his hollow . 

One of the many many many many times ichigo struggled with his hollow : 

( also with a little bit of ichihime since I guess you’re one of those people that like to argue against logic that ichigo and orihime got no development )  . 

Ichigo thought his hollow was something exterior to him , a parasite that had to be tamed . Something that would always try to take over , making him lose control and in the process make him lose his humanity . And that’s what happened during the lust arc  . Ichigo went to terrible length to protect Orihime , length nobody should go to let alone a 16 year old boy . He died to protect her . And he believes this happened because he was too weak and that after that his hollow took over because he let himself be defeated by Ulquiorra . His hollow did exactly what ichigo feared he would do if he ever took over : he became a mindless beast . And doing that he hurt one of his nakamas . This is the most unacceptable of all for ichigo . 

But when he understood that his hollow was born because of what happened to his mother and that in the end his hollow was actually his powers that’s when he finally learnt to accept himself . He was finally able to have total control over his powers . He is able to fight and to live freely without the constant fear that something inside him would one day wake up and hurt the people he cares for . 

I talk a little more about it here

But in the end Kubo had ichigo made peace with himself , accept himself , love himself . 

I mean just compare those two moments ( that are coincidentally also ichihime moments because Orihime was here all along with ichigo’s struggle with his hollow ) . 

Look at that , in the bottom panel it’s clearly self loathing you can see in ichigo’s eyes . He hates himself because he thinks orihime fears / is disgusted with him . Thankfully at the end of the fight when he understand orihime will always accept him no matter what he overcomes this feeling ( giving us the infamous “ sorry grimmjow it looks like I’m not allowed to get hurt anymore” ) 

And looks at this ! Look at how proud he stands . He is no longer ashamed of his hollow . THE VERY CONTRARY he is actually proud to show it to Orihime . This is a smile of pride because ichigo is proud of who he is at that point , he is proud of his heritage , he is proud of his hollow powers that are part of soul . 

He made peace with himself , he is happy . 

After Ywach’s kicked his ass , he takes back ichigo’s powers from him . But which power exactly ? 

He was able to defeat Ywach’s with his zanpakuto so obviously both his hollow and shinigami powers . I personally think only his quincys powers were lost ( and even of that we can’t be sure because it seems that some of the stern ritters still got their quincy powers even after Ywach used the holy light thingy on them that is supposed to remove them their powers . See : Bazz B , giselle and Liltotto ) . Sadly because of the cancellation we won’t have the answers . 

Of course not having his quincy powers is a hard blow for ichigo but only in the sense that they were a part of his mom that survived in him . I made this edit because I was sad . Feel free to reblog it my lovely salty ichiruki anon ( yeah it’s not because you leave anon hate on my inbox that it’s a reason for me not to shamelessly promote my bleach edits ) . 

But in the end ichigo still got his powers . His powers are not important to him because they are his powers . They’re important to him because they give him the power to protect those he cares for . If you’re not convinced by that please read the fullbring arc . Kubo made it so clear that ichigo seeking to regain his power was not to gain power for the sake of it but to have the ability to protect . 

Ichigo wanted to regain strength in order to protect those he loves . Shinigami powers , fullbring powers HE DIDN’T CARE . All he wanted was to protect them . 

And in Bleach 686 he is now at peace with the two things he’s been struggling with during all of bleach : his hollow and his powerlessness . 

Funnily enough the hollow was a problem because he was not powerful enough to control it but I separate these two things because his hollow represented his struggle with understanding who he was exactly which was also a main theme concerning Ichigo . AND EVEN MORE FUNNILY ENOUGH his powerlessness at the beginning of the fullbringer arc was also linked to him not knowing who he was and what he would do if he was not a protector ( who said Kubo couldn’t write I’ll fucking fight you with my bare arms )  . 

Ichigo’s ambitions and dreams were ALWAYS , ALWAYS , ALWAYS about him being able to protect people . And in the end of Bleach he is able to do that . 

Ichigo happy and fulfilled when the people he loves are happy and fullfilled . That’s who he is . His bond with his friends and family are what are most important to him . Career , power , fame , glory  … Ichigo never cared about any of that . Ichigo cared about the people he loves being safe and happy . 

The bonds he has with the people he loves are what ichigo’s lives for . And look at him in the last chapter . He is surrounded by all the people he loves ( except isshin but that’s another story but it’s weird he isn’t here when it would have been so easy to put him somewhere in the background and actually it worries me a little it goes along with my headcanon that if Kubo had the time to finish bleach he would have killed isshin in the last arc but i disgress) . 

Ichigo is truly happy in the last chapter . He is at peace with himself , he is strong enough to protect the people he loves , he has a family of his own ( a family he must put above everything else ) , a wife he probably consider as the most wonderful person he ever had a chance to meet , a son he must love so deeply and unconditionally  , he is still close to his sisters , he still is close to the people he cares for ( tatsuki , keigo , mizuiro ) , he has still an unbreakable bond with his nakamas ( chad , ishida ,renji and of course rukia )  he made peace with his powers , he let go of the guilt he held over his mother’s death  . 

HE IS HAPPY . 


Look at him here . He is oozing with hapiness and feeling good with ones skin . He is smiling , he does not have his scowl anymore , his shoulder are relaxed . This is a happy person . This is a fulfilled person .

Just compare it to his very first apparition in Bleach :

Scowling , tense shoulder , harsh attitude and yada yada . Ichigo went through so much , we’ve seen him grown , we’ve seen him struggling , we’ve seen him fight and fail and win and at the end Kubo choose to make him happy . Kubo choose to give him the life he would have chosen for himself if he ever had to choose . 

And if , in your delusion YOU choose to say ichigo is unhappy just because your ship did not happen then you have no right to consider yourself an Ichigo fan . 

If you want ichigo to be broken and miserable just because YOU were broken and miserable with this ending then you do not have the right to claim you love ichigo . 

If you continue to mischarectize ichigo , twisting him , bending him , changing him so that he could fit better the ‘ half of ichiruki’ mold you people tried so hard to shove him into then you do not deserve ichigo . You do not deserve Bleach . You do not deserve Kubo and his talented ( also it has flaws I’m the first to admit it ) writing . 


Ichigo is happy . Ichigo is exactly where he wants to be  . Ichigo HIMSELF choose where he is in the ending . You’all acting as if he is struck in Karakura town ,as if he is struck with orihime . 

But no , if ichigo wanted to live in soul society he would have been able to do so . If ichigo wanted to be with rukia he would have never choose anybody else . 

But that’s not what ichigo wanted . That’s never what he chose  . He chose to live in Karakura because that’s what he wants . He chose to marry Orihime because she is the woman he is in love with . 

Ichigo at the end of the manga had no restrictions at all . He could decide where to go , which live to live , which person to marry . 

And that’s exactly what he did . 

He chose Karakura town . 

He chose his family . 

He chose his Nakamas . 

And he chose Orihime . Because she was what he always wanted for himself.

anonymous asked:

What kind if fathe would the slbp lords be?

Nobunaga: He would be a surprisingly relaxed and playful father, but his kids would instinctively know not to cross the line. He would firmly believe in allowing his children to make mistakes - to the point where onlookers would think he doesn’t care. It’s not that he doesn’t - it’s just that he thinks there’s no better way for them to learn than from their own blunders.

Of course….he will definitely take the time to rub those blunders in their faces later on …that part of him isn’t going to change. XD 

Mitsuhide:  Supportive and warm - he would be there for his children no matter what, and fiercely protective. Rather than allowing them to blindly make mistakes, Mitsuhide would prefer to counsel them and talk things through. Because of his personal involvement in their education, his children would grow up to be particularly refined and they would look up to him not just as a father, but also as a mentor.

Masamune: Extremely affectionate. There would no awkwardness in his affection for his children. He would show it freely without restraint, because the most important thing for his children to know is that they are loved. He wouldn’t say much, but his actions would express a thousand times more than any words ever could. He will always be their silent supporter, no matter what. His discipline will probably be slightly lacking - so his wife would have to step it up in that respect.

The rest of the samurai are below the cut.

anonymous asked:

aaaahhh do you think that Seidou liked Akira in a romantic way? I had that feeling at first, but many people said that he was just very jealous and hated her, so I thought that maybe I got the wrong idea reading the manga (i actually read it very fast, I'm sure I overlooked many things, like the tarot numbers). But do you have solid "proof" that he liked her or is it just an overall feeling? I've been reading some of your stuff (specially Kuroshitsuji) and I really really like it :)

Hi Anon, thank you for sticking around and for the nice words! I really appreciate it! :3 Yes I think Seidou liked Akira in a romantic way and I do have “proof”. :)

This begins to become apparent after Akira finally started “fitting in” the 20th ward team, which is when she went out with Amon and Takizawa and became drunk (ch110). She finally was able to speak up about why she was acting so harshly towards Amon (which is a fact, she was rude, but thank God, Ishida knows something called “character development”) and as a result, things changed, not only with Amon but also with Takizawa.
Same for Takizawa, he got drunk and was able to say everything he wanted to tell her and after that, they never really argued again.

Small digression: just to make things clear, I believe Seidou was probably the one who started the hostility between them back on Academy days but I totally admit that Akira’s cold attitude most of the time wasn’t helping which is why Takizawa’s grudge stayed for a long time.

“It’s your fault that I was always 2nd place, you were always ahead of me.”

As you see, it’s not rational. Seidou’s main problem is his inferiority complex, but I disagree with people who says it’s Akira’s fault he started developing one. In my opinion, it started way before he even entered the Academy, and actually he probably wanted to become a ghoul investigator in order to “feel useful” and to “achieve more than anyone else” because he had the impression he was utter shit (I think it probably all started when, as a child, he saw his mother being very afraid of ghouls but he realized that he couldn’t protect her and he started to feel useless from that moment. It’s a common thing for children or young teens, psychology-wise, and we know it’s exactly for that reason that Seidou became a dove (ch123)).

The panol above and his initial attitude towards Juuzou prove that the inferiority complex is just eating him from the inside often, especially when it comes to people younger than him, or initially ‘equal’ to him, but who get more chances than he does to show their worth (like Akira going to battle in Kanou’s lab even though they’re of the same year and rank while he stays behind an office desk, or Juuzou not going through the Academy and being younger but managing to gain ranks quickly).

-

Back to your question, as I was saying after getting drunk together, Akira’s attitude to Amon changed and same for Akira and Takizawa’s relationship.

Here (ch114) he’s worried because it’s the first time Akira invited Amon to lunch. I wouldn’t exactly call that jealousy because it’s not clear if he feels strange about Amon getting on better terms with Akira (since Seidou and him were getting along well before she became close to him) or about Akira starting to be nicer to Amon which definitely indicates that something between them is changing. And he doesn’t look happy with the idea.  

And after that, there is the Anteiku raid arc in which all the proofs you wanted can be found.

First, Amon fights Kaneki but gets hurt in the process but Akira doesn’t know that, and yet…

…She has the feeling something happened to Amon. From the very beginning, Seidou had said to be very skeptical of her “intuition” and always disagreed with her on whatever reasoning that was triggered by it.

But this time…

He decided to trust her.

Amon is important to him as a friend and mentor, but he knows Amon is important to her as well (he noticed the change in their relationship, that’s what this moment of ch114 is all about) which is why he goes to search for Amon for himself but also for Akira, because he saw she was worried (but as a squad leader she just couldn’t leave her post in the middle of the mission to go look for Amon).

It gets better after.

That’s all the proof you need to know that he went to search for Amon for her sake (even if Amon is also his friend) and that he’s been crushing on her for a long time, since their Academy days maybe, but with the inferiority complex it took for Amon and Akira to get closer in front of his eyes for him to start noticing his own feelings. 

And finally, the last proof: he found Amon but Aogiri passed by and attacked them. He fought them but Tatara threw him at Noro who bit him harshly and as he was losing consciousness…

Look into his eyes, you can distinguish Akira, probably because he’s thinking of her, realizing he might never see her again since he was injured very severely. Here’s a bigger picture:

Some people who hate Akira believe it’s the image of Seidou’s sister, but it makes no sense considering we’ve seen the girl only once (the picture doesn’t even fit, it’s definitely Akira’s hairdo) and that many things happen between Akira and Seidou during this arc, whether you think Seidou had feelings for her or not.

Even if you don’t see it romantically, the thing is that he still decided to follow her intuiton, even though he always refused to believe in it before, and he also went to look for Amon not only for himself but for her as well

And then we have their small meeting in :Re chapter 30 (my thoughts here).

So, to me it’s obvious he had feelings for her, but take the time to make your own opinion with all the panels I just gave you Anon. 

There you have it, I hope it will be useful, take care and thanks again for the nice words! :3

      • “Between the first and the second is a huge gap. Being second is just a consolation for the loser. Yes, a consolation for them not to think that, as long as there’s someone above them… they’re nothing but a loser. The gap between a perfect 100 mark and a 99 is not just one point.”
      • “If you become what you’re afraid of, fear will fade. What you two are afraid of, is the Door of Death in front of you. So I’ll have you become that. Once you’re Death, death is no longer scary. You’re scared because you’re a living person.”

Hide has a lot of patience, and is devoted to someone who doesn’t necessarily deserve his appreciation. I understand that Kaneki refused communication with Hide, for the sake of keeping Hide safe from him, but Kaneki went about it in a terrible way.

I like how the manga points out that Kaneki’s mother is a “selfish” woman, and that he, Kaneki, is very selfish, and very much like her. The idea that, “If I keep him away, he’ll be safe,” At first glance, is an actual noble idea.

But Kaneki never considered Hide’s feelings with this attitude. He considered Hide’s safety, but not his feelings. His pretending Hide didn’t exist meant that Hide could be safe, from him. And that’s selfish.

Selfishness isn’t always a bad thing, though, despite it’s negative connotation.

But what is negative, is that he hardly considered how Hide was feeling.

Which Is why I’m glad that Ishida not only highlighted Kaneki’s selfishness, but also the fact that Hide was lonely (in the anime, at least), and that Kaneki’s negligence to be a good friend is apart of Hide’s loneliness.

I would really love a scene in which Hide yells at Kaenki. Kaneki’s “protecting” Hide didn’t protect him at all.( Let’s be real, how is Hide bleeding to death protecting him? If Kaneki was really protecting him, he would’ve made sure Hide wasn’t involved with the CCG. What about the sewer? Same as the first sentence.)  What strikes me, honestly, is that Kaneki knows Hide’s personality, knows Hide and his tendency to investigate things that seem amiss. Kaneki’s disappearance is a miss.

I wonder if he expected Hide to forget about him, like he forgot about Hide?

(Going back to Kaneki’s relationship with his mother, and how he doesn’t want to be alone, and the selfishness that’s derived from that, I wonder if Kaneki was actually betting on Hide finding him. Perhaps I see it as an ego thing, Kaneki expects Hide to look for him. )

All-in-all, Kaneki owes Hide a huge ass apology. And the sad part is, whether he apologizes or not,  Hide will still love him unconditionally. Oh well, we all have those friends we don’t deserve.

p.s: Though part of me wonders if Kaneki just wanted to show Hide that he could do something on his own. Hide is always standing up for Kaneki. Judging by the fact that Kaneki knows that Hide may have been looking for him, I wonder if he did so in such a way that he can show Hide, “See, you don’t always have to help me.” In the anime, Kaneki doesn’t even seem surprised when Hide mentions his “Eye-patch” get up, and that he’s been seeing him on the news. Just an observation.

What are your thoughts/headcanons/feels on IshiHime?

……Do you have six hours to spare, anon?  Because I’ve got this PowerPoint pres–

Okay, in all seriousness, I cannot possibly answer such an open-ended question in one post, I’m afraid xD At least not in a manner that covers everything I feel about those two. But I’ll try to go over the basics as succinctly as I can.

I’ve mentioned it often enough on this blog, but IshiHime was my first Bleach ship, and even though it was later on dethroned from the #1 spot by UraYoru and Shiyori, it was still my top ship when it came to the nakama. I guess for a lot of people IshiHime may look like a ‘pair the spares’ deal, but it wasn’t that way for me.  IchiRuki won me over slowly, but IshiHime was love at first sight, so to speak.

Reading old volumes of TG is so surreal. Kaneki used to be such a little pushover, he was so scared of Tsukiyama once. Now Tsukiyama calls him “my king”. I miss how much he loved books. I miss that rare attitude he had that he would keep fighting even if he was embarrassingly far behind compared to everyone else. He was so innocent. It’s amazing that Ishida could write this manga. I’m dumbfounded by how good it is.

9 for IshiHime pleeeease ^_^ (I am trash)

9: I’m sorry for punching you in the face.

“Oh my god, Uryuu.”

The gash on one of his cheekbones is long and deep, pulled together into a red, raw smile with fine stitching, and the bruise on the other is painful to look at, already blotching purple onto the paper paleness of his face. 

 “Did you get into a fight?” Ryuuken demands, and Uryuu mumbles about needing new glasses and faulty lightbulbs and falling down a flight of stairs almost comically unconvincingly.

“The nurse said you needed three stitches.”

“Stairs can be dangerous.”

“Uryuu”, Ryuuken rubs his temples, “I’m a doctor.”

“I know.” Uryuu deadpans, “You make a point of telling me about it. Every day.”

“Here we go again, with that attitude of yours.”

“It’s genetic. I get it from you, I’m sure.”

The tension in the room is palpable, almost tangible. An invisible wall between father and son, and they only brick it together better with every second of silence that passes between them. Ryuuken sighs in defeat, turning around to leave, only for the stillness of the room to shatter as the door swings open with all the force of an industrial wrecking ball.

“Are you Ishida-kun’s doctor?”

Ryuuken blinks in surprise at this…person. Florist’s apron still on at 11 pm, for some reason, she’s a mess of orange and green and yellow and every other colour he can think of. Breathless. Worried and red-faced from breaking into his chamber with all the bravado of a knight in shining armour.

“I’m his father.”

“He’s my doctor, Inoue-san.” Uryuu hops off the examination table, and stumbles.

The idiot.

“No, no, I think he’s your dad, too”, the girl stares at him curiously, “Same eyes, see?” She lights up in spirit of this discovery, and then, panic spreads over her face.

Oh dear” She gasps. “Did I give you amnesia?”

“I’m sorry” Ryuuken interrupts, “Gave him amnesia?”

“Ryuuken I swear. “

“Yes!” The girl—Inoue, turns around, guilt washing over her face in the split second before she bows.
“I’m sorry for punching your son in the face because I thought he was a burglar”, she stands, pauses for a moment, and bows again,
“And I’m extra sorry that he fell on my vase, and, you know, cut his face open.”

Ryuuken glances over at him, and Uryuu is blushing.

Inoue is still bowing.

Kanae’s photo is staring at him from his desk with all the judgement of the end days.

He needs a drink.

“I’m going home.” Uryuu yells from the back of the room, embarrassed, already beginning to put his shoes back on.

“No you’re not.” Ryuuken pulls Inoue a chair, “You’re grounded.”

“I’m 19.”

“You’re an idiot, and I’m calling Miss Inoue a taxi.”

“I can drop her off myself, thank you very much, Ryuuken.” Uryuu gathers his bag and his sweater in a hurry, and then he’s taking off with the florist girl in tow, in the kind of flurry of movement that suits novelists and unbecomes doctors.

The fool’s left his neurology textbooks behind.

Ryuuken turns to his desk, “Can you believe this, Kanae? A florist?” He flicks alight a cigarette, and as he sinks into his chair, allows himself the faintest of smiles.

Look at this beautiful lil’ child! He can kill you in five seconds while eating your candies.
I truly love Juuzou, he’s one of my favorite Tokyo Ghoul characters. I mean, his personal development is the best by far (after kaneki’s ofc).. He started as a crazy sociopath with a strong ‘mama-complex’. He lacked empathy completely, murdered without hesitation, mocked and hurted every single person who dared to look down on him.. And now just look at his brilliant appearance! A fully fledged investigator with friends, emotions and self-control.
I really appreciate how Ishida described gradually Juuzou’s transformation, because it WAS GRADUAL, even if someone complains that juuzou started to feel emotions only when Shinohara was fatally wounded by Eto, making in fact his story a stereotype like many others in manga. I totally reject this conception of Juuzou.. It’s true that he grew up almost thanks to Shinohara, but his blooming was slow and sweet. Remember the scene at the zoo? It was way before the anteiku rampage..
Another beautiful thing about Juuzou is his purity. He was pure even before changing attitude, because every action he did was not triggered by hate or rage.. He simply accomplished his duties, like an angel without any moral constraint. Angels actually do have a moral, you may say, but such moral is God’s moral, something that a simple human being can’t understand. So saying that an angel is a pure being with God’s moral is like saying that an angel is a pure being WITHOUT a moral, 'cause the divine is beyond our understanding possibilities. This goes also for Juuzou, whose behavior and intentions are still a mystery, but never driven by brutal human emotions like hate (remember the auction arc? He said to big mama that he never hated her and we know well what she did to him). In my opinion the parallelism between Juuzou and an angelic creature is perfect and Ishida did very well his job xD ( however I don’t want to descent in complex philosophical dissertation, because I totally can’t do something like that xD).
My hope is to see Juuzou again soon, I’m quite missing him and every scene with him and Hanbee just fulls my heart with joy 😆😍

Six years ago, he acted as the leader of the Chosen Children in their adventure in the Digital World. He has a strong sense of justice, and his earnest, straightforward side hasn’t changed from his elementary school days, but lately he’s been seen worrying about what to do in his future.
Agumon (CV: Sakamoto Chika)
Taichi’s Digimon partner. A reptile Digimon who walks on two legs. Normally he’s very laid-back, but when the time calls for it, he faces down the enemy without considering the danger to himself. His special attack is a ball of flame that he spits out from his mouth, Baby Flame. 

Ishida Yamato (CV: Hosoya Yoshimasa)
A 2nd year who attends Tsukishima General High School. He is in the class next door to Taichi and Sora. Although he looks cold by appearance, he is actually very considerate of his friends and has a fierce personality. His straightforward attitude often causes his opinions to clash with Taichi’s. He continues to play in a band much as he has done in middle school, as both bass and vocals. The “TEEN-AGE WOLVES” have been temporarily disbanded, perhaps due to differences in musical ideas among the band members, so he has recently formed a new band.
Gabumon (CV: Yamaguchi Mayumi)
Yamato’s Digimon partner. He wears Garurumon’s fur coat, but he is really a reptile Digimon like Agumon. His special attack is a small ball of flame, Petit Fire. 

Takenouchi Sora (CV: Mimori Suzuko)
A 2nd year in Tsukishima General High School, and both classmate and childhood friend to Taichi. While she has a tomboyish and down-to-earth personality, she possesses both considerate kindness and tact towards other people and a strong sense of responsibility. She intervenes at times when Taichi and Yamato are fighting, and she is the “big sister” who brings everyone together.
Piyomon (CV: Shigematsu Atori)
Sora’s Digimon partner. A baby bird Digimon whose wings have developed into arms. Her special attack is an illusory fire, Magical Fire. 

Izumi Koushiro (CV: Tamura Mutsumi)
A 1st year in Tsukishima General High School. He is an intelligent logical thinker who knows a lot about computers and the internet. He is proficient at quickly grasping a situation and analyzing it. He has an active side, where he communicates with “Chosen Children” throughout the world on the internet, but sometimes he can become so absorbed in knowledge and collecting information that he ignores everything else around him.
Tentomon (CV: Sakurai Takahiro)
Koushiro’s Digimon partner. An insect Digimon with six legs and a hard shell. His special attack is releasing static electricity from tactile sensation, Petit Thunder. For some reason, he speaks Kansai dialect. 

Tachikawa Mimi (CV: Yoshida Hitomi)
A cheerful and innocent girl. She can be selfish and move at her own pace, but at the core, she is a kind person and liked by everyone. While she loves music and is a skillful singer, she also has a peculiar sense of taste thanks to her parents. While she had been living in America because of her dad’s job, she returns back to live in Japan. Her long years abroad have put a further shine to her innocence.
Palmon (CV: Yamada Kinoko)
Mimi’s Digimon partner. A plant Digimon with a tropical flower on her head. Her special attack uses poisonous ivy, Poison Ivy. 

Kido Jou (CV: Ikeda Junya)
A sincere, serious-minded boy. He is a 3rd year who attends a high-level school in the city, and is currently studying to get into med school. Not only is he preparing for university exams, but he is also attending a prep school and is doing nothing but studying. However, his grades aren’t going up as much as he would like and he is beginning to be troubled over that.
Gomamon (CV: Takeuchi Junko)
Jou’s Digimon partner. A marine mammal Digimon covered in warm fur who is good at swimming. When he gets angry, the red hair that spreads from his head to his back stands on end. His special attack is freely using his henchmen fish, Marching Fishes. 

Takaishi Takeru (CV: Enoki Junya)
A 2nd year who attends Odaiba Middle School. He lives apart from his brother Yamato because of their parents’ divorce, but the two have a good relationship and they frequently keep in touch. Just like Koushiro, he keeps in contact with “Chosen Children” throughout the world through his blog.
Patamon (CV: Matsumoto Miwa)
Takeru’s Digimon partner. A mammal Digimon with unique large ears. His special attack is swallowing air and spitting it back out in one burst, Air Shot. 

Yagami Hikari (CV: MAO)
Taichi’s sister and a 2nd year who attends Odaiba Middle School. She always has her brother Taichi on her mind, and although she has a kind personality, she can also be very fierce. She loves sweets; lately the ice bars at the convenience store are her favorite. She still continues with the photography that she began out of interest as a hobby in elementary school.
Tailmon (CV: Tokumitsu Yuka)
Hikari’s Digimon partner. A holy beast Digimon shaped like a small cat. Her special attack is using her sharp long nails, Cat Punch.

anonymous asked:

Could you tell us what things catched your attention in the redraw and what are your thoughts on them? Your opinions are really interesting

Hey, Anon! Sure I can!

Before we start though, I suggest to anyone who still has to read the remake to re-read the original version before touching the redraw. This way you’ll surely notice all the shifts (and maybe catch more than I did!)

Alright, let’s get going!

1. Hide doesn’t look “scared” at all anymore when he hears that ghouls are close by. Instead, he looks calm, even strangely curious. He acknowledges this news with a smile on his face, as though talking about a change in the menu instead of the real danger of man-eating monsters lurking nearby. We can only guess why he would appear this collected in such a dangerous situation, but the feeling I get is that he wasn’t feeling threatened by this news, not even in the original version. Maybe he just felt like he was supposed to show some sort of fear. He does know how to wiggle his way out of dangerous situations after all, and as I said before, this remake presented Hide in a slightly different light: he doesn’t appear goofy and oblivious as before, but instead, even when he’s acting stupid, the reader gets the feeling that he actually understands far more than he lets on. 

This panel, together with his creepy smirk I’m going to talk about in a bit, might be just another example of it. 

2. This is another slight shift from the original narrative. I’ve seen people wondering if Hide was implying that he’s a ghoul. I personally don’t think that’s the case for a number of reasons.

Bleach characters, you just learned that Yhwach and Yamamoto used to date! Your reactions?


As requested by anon. :)


Ichigo: Used to…?


Ichigo:


Ichigo: Please tell me this war wasn’t caused by a bad breakup.


Ichigo: That would not make me happy.


(ghost) Yamamoto: This war was caused by a bad breakup.


Ichigo: DAMMIT


Orihime: That’s so sad!


Orihime: A Quincy and a shinigami fell in love, but it didn’t work out, and then their societies went to war??


Chad: It is very tragic.


Chad: With their epic facial hair, they should have been able to make it work.


Chad: Just think of the epic facial hair their children would have had.


Ishida: …they couldn’t have had children, Sado.


Chad: Not with that attitude.


Candice: I can’t believe His Majesty *slaughtered* his ex!


Candice: He must have liked Bambietta.


Cang Du: This just goes to show why shinigami and Quincy should not date.


Masaki: Um 


Isshin: Um


Bazz-B: Um


Renji: ….wait why are *you* saying “um,” Bazz-B?


Hisagi: No wonder nobody in Soul Society is allowed to date.


Hisagi: The head captain must think dating is a terrible, terrible thing.


Ishida: Oh for the love of Quincy!


Ishida: This war is NOT about a bad breakup, people!


Ishida: If it were, would we be in the Royal Realm right now? Or would the war have ended when His Majesty slaughtered the shinigami head captain?


Ichigo: Y-you’re right, Ishida! That makes me feel so much better!


Ichigo: Unless, of course, the Soul King was the one who got them to hook up in the first place…


Ichigo: But that can’t be the case!


Soul King: Oh I was totally the one who set them up on a blind date originally.


Soul King: I thought they could take about their facial hair.


Chad: Definitely a good reason.


Yhwach: And now the man who motivated the man who broke my heart….has to die.


(ghost) Yamamoto: Yeah like you were blameless.


Yhwach: I WROTE YOU MANY POEMS


Ichigo:


Ishida:


Ishida: Maybe I will quit the Quincy after all.


Ichigo: Yeah you’d better.
