Ichigo and Rukia have met up during the 10 year timeskip.
I’ve been seeing people claiming that Ichigo and Rukia haven’t seen
each other in 10 years, therefore it’s ooc, which indeed it would be if
it was true but it’s not. Most irritatingly I’ve seen people
using this as some sort of basis for their Anti ichihime/Anti Renruki
theory in which Yhwach’s energy appeared in “Ichigo’s happiest moment
which was when Rukia finally arrived after 10 years” (insinuating that
Ichiruki is the true canon pairing), which is a) such a reach b)
Illogical. and c) Such a reach.
It seems that people are
bringing up Viz and Cnet128’s Translation of chapter 686 to breathe more
life into this theory. Viz is obviously better than mangastream in this
regard. Cnet is a well known, respected and reliable translator.
However people need to realise both Viz and Cnet’s translations are
heavily based on context and aresometimes slightly closer
to summary translations rather than word for word. This isn’t a bad
thing, in fact it’s a great thing because it conveys the mood and feel
behind the text much closer to how it should be. So if their translation
doesn’t mention a tiny detail which could clearly indicate whether
Rukia and Ichigo have met up during the 10 years, don’t automatically
assume that indeed they haven’t. You have to look at the raws.
and what does the raws suggest? Oh surprise surprise they actually have met up before (and
if we consider how casual they act in the chapter plus what we already
know about the bonds between all 6 ‘nakama’ we can safely assume that
they have met up on multiple important occasions).
Ichigo: “That reminds me, did you not say you would be accompanied by your kid this time?”
今回 (Konkai) = this time
if the raw didn’t say “Konkai” I would’ve still assumed they have seen
one another many times before 686 because it’s ooc if they didn’t.
as how Rukia and Ichigo must have met on at least a few occasions
during the timeskip, it begs the question why didn’t Yhwach chose to
return during those prior meetings? why now decide to make an appearance
when Ichigo is married to Orihime and with a son, when Rukia is married
to Renji, a child of their own, surrounded by friends, watching Chad
attain success as a Boxer hmm? Why chose to appear in front of Kazui and
right before Ichika makes an entrance? Oh I don’t know maybe Yhwach’s power was about to take away the most important thing to both sets of parents (remember how it was a promise made to all who followed Yhwach through that gate), and really I can’t imagine a worse sort of way to destroy one’s happiness.
had 99 problems with the ending of Bleach, but Ichigo and Rukia’s
happiness with their respective spouses and children was not one of
Now, I’m really curious as to which person is which. Thus after rewatching the first killing game for more despair, I noticed that the way the ‘motivation’ files are arranged here (from left to right)
is somewhat similar to how they are arranged here (or more specifically, how it goes from right to left, bottom to top)
I’m saying somewhat similar because from jinjojess’ post, and from the 2 canonically named characters (Murasame and Kisaragi), we got the positions correct? Murasame is also the last from the gif, and that Kisaragi is 4th from the last as well.
So, from my guess, I would say they are arranged in the exact same way? Just my opinion though, since we really don’t have anything set in stone besides Murasame’s and Kisaragi’s.
So if that were the case, it would be like this then:
(Idk I just put Isshiki there because extra space and he IS the bodyguard of the SC, plus wHERE THE HELL IS HE AND MATSUDA TOO)
And from there as well, I would assume that the way they are arranged is also related to their position in the student council.
Meaning, Kashiki would be in the lowest position while Murasame would obviously be the highest.
Though there isn’t really any set rules as to what positions you can have in a student council (besides the important ones, like Pres, VP, Secretary, Auditor, Treasurer, etc)
But more of my other wild guesses are that both Someya and Ikuta are Vice Presidents (Internal and External), since we already have Kisaragi as the Secretary and Murasame as the President, and I don’t think there’s any other position in between those besides VPs. And maybe, Ichino and Kamiginu are the Escort and Muse (idk do you have those in Student Councils? Lol I honestly don’t know and I think I remember my HS had them?). Also, I think the lowest position in the SC would be the representatives per year (or per class) but I don’t think they (Kashiki, Nishizawa, and Kubou) are?
Anyways, this is just my two cents on the topic and haha yes because I want to really know which is which so there is DISTINCTION between them
P.S. Kodaka pls tell us who they are. Youve given them character designs, dont let the character designers’ efforts go to waste
I'm on holiday in Ireland and yesterday we ended up sitting with a bunch of people from Estonia at a pub and Estonian is just such a pretty language??? And all the Estonian people were super pretty and super nice??? I'm simply overwhelmed to be quite honest! My next holiday will have to be to Estonia!
alternate interpretation of the Julie Rose ??? translation decision about ages that has Bahorel as “a student of the nursery school”: Bahorel,while technically enrolled in law school, is studying up on early childhood educational theory and planning to start early childhood care centers post-revolution, on the cutting edge of the écoles maternelles concept that was just taking off in the 1830s and still heavily conceptualized as a way of offering care and assistance to poor and working class kids
also I have hecked the heck up because this was supposed to be a joke theory about a cracky translation choice and now I’m emotional about it, I am my own undoing
