  1. CAN I JUST

    I want to scream, because although it’s a good point that Bleach is not about the romantic relationship between Ichigo and Rukia, that point is being presented badly by rude people in my own fandom. 
    Seriously, don’t be rude guys, not even when people are rude to you first. You just end up looking stupid. It’s not funny or cute unless you have the maturity of a peanut.

    Anyway, so here are some good ways to refute the anti-ichihime comments being made:

    Reason 1. No one can say there isn’t heavy emphasis on the relationship between Ichigo and Rukia. There is. Rukia is very, very important to Ichigo. If you don’t know that, you aren’t reading the manga. 
    HOWEVER, trying to tone down the importance of Ichigo’s bonds with other people because of it, or play down the significance of any of his friends, is a disservice to his character. Ichigo’s relationships— plural— are what define him.
    The best reason to argue that Bleach is not about the romantic relationship between Ichigo and Rukia, is because Kubo Tite implicitly said Bleach is not about romance. So if you still argue that Bleach is about the relationship between Ichigo and Rukia, you have just disproved your own ship
    Reason 2. The nature of Ichigo’s feelings for anyone do not need to be resolved to end the story. 
    Bleach could end without a canon pairing for Ichigo being set.
    If Bleach were about Ichigo and Rukia or Ichigo and Orihime, that would be a HUGE plot hole. 
    THAT is why the story is not just about ONE GIRL AND ONE BOY. IM GONNA CRY. STOP PUTTING ANTI POSTS IN THE PRO TAGS WHAT ARE YOU THIRTEEN
  2. marinka-emka asked: So sorry to bother you, dear, but since you have RAW scans of chapter 589, can you tell which translation of Yoruichis words was more correct: VIZ's "sleep with her", mangastream's "say something flirty" or panda's "come into my arms"? XD Just curious XD
    pugthrottle, the moon whispered back:

    'Make love to her'….that's what Yoruichi said to Ichigo.

    http://jisho.org/words?jap=daku&eng=&dict=edict&romaji=on

    抱く daku

    1: to embrace; to hold in the arms (e.g. a baby); to hug;
    2: (Godan verb with ku ending) to have sex with; to make love to; to sleep with;
    3: to sit on eggs. (ps: A mother hen sits on egg patiently for the eggs to hatch, nurture her children with love).

    Only ‘embrace her’ as in hug her would be the word idaku

    http://jisho.org/words?jap=idaku&eng=&dict=edict&romaji=on
    抱く idaku

    1: to embrace; to hold in the arms (e.g. a baby); to hug;
    2: to harbour (e.g. grudge) (harbor); to bear (e.g. a grudge); to entertain (e.g. suspicion)

    image

    See the hiragana inside the red box?  It’s DAite—>DAKU.

    So, yes, Viz’s translation(sleep with her) is the closest when you compare daku vs idaku, followed by Mangastream’s translation (I’m assuming that flirting is making love with her).

  11. IchiHime week - Day 4 : How you feel other Bleach characters view IchiHime.

    kinshara-butoudan:

    I’m so late I’m sorry kdjgkfg

    Well, I find it interesting how Ichigo and Orihime’s relationship has been commented on by other characters more than any other relationship in the series. Be it allies, foes, friends, there is character from EACH side that will give a different insight, his own, and I think these points of view tend to converge and show us that most characters DO see something strong between them or at least that they deeply care for each others/are connected somehow.

    The thing that also caught my attention is how nobody seems to find anything bad about it, on the contrary, many point out how they bring out the best in each other, like Rangiku explained it in her speech to Orihime. image

    image

    And I like how, if envy/jealousy could be considered a bad emotion, Rangiku knows that Orihimeisn’t feeling like that out of selfishness so she makes sure to make her realise how important she is, in her own way, unique, confirming what I said on day 1 : their relationship is one of a kind in the series. Moreover, Rangiku doesnt know Ichigo as much as, say Renji or Rukia, yet she can easily see how his bond with her is concrete, and that says a lot imo about them. Hell, even Ulquiorra who doesnt understand the concept of human emotions commented on Ichigo getting stronger, maybe for Orihime’s sake, image

    image

    and, it’s my personal opinion but I think you can link that to what he says in his last moments, after seeing how Ichigo rose up from the dead to help Orihime, he finds them interesting and then understand the meaning of the heart image

    image

    I’m not even talking about Tatsuki who (apart from telling Orihime to take him down pff) basically thought Ichigo would be the first person to know where she went when she disappeared for HM. She seems to have entrusted Orihime to him, and for that she must have had a very great faith in Ichigo

    Apart from that I feel like most characters are able to see that Orihime is in love with Ichigo and Ichigo is protective over Orihime. I mean we got, for example, Chad hiding that Orihime was attacked as to not worry Ichigo, Renji smiling at him, looking like he’s doing him a favour while asking Yamamoto to lead a HM squad :image

     Ishida commenting 2 times on Orihime’s behavior in regards to her love for Ichigo, Nell telling Orihime about Ichigo fighting for her, and so on.
    Not only that but enemies use one to get to the other, showing that it is easy to see the bond they share. Nnoitra tortured Ichigo in front of Orihime, and this too : image

    There’s also Aizen commenting on Ichigo having no real reason to fight image

    image

    because his friends are safe, but he singles out Orihime. There’s also Grimmjow that openly taunted Ichigo about Orihime, and I feel he’s the one who does it the most, and is conscious more than any other villain that you better not mess with Ichigo about Orihime : image
    and i feel the look on Grimmjow’s face either means he noticed about Ichigo being protective over Orihime or that he knows he better not mess with him. And it doesnt mean much really but earlier on in the story (SS arc), there’s also Kenpachi taking Orihime with him because he thinks it will eventually lead him to Ichigo
    image

    Since I’m getting carried away, I’ll conclude that I think it is very easy to see that they care deeply for one another from an outsider’s perspective. I just wonder if Ichigo and Orihime notice how close they can appear themselves.
