Don't you get what Kubo's trying to say with the dead kid comic? His heart is just not in it anymore.

If it's up to Kubo he'd just drop everything and quit cold turkey. Editors are the ones who told him to at least write an ending, and Matsubara talked him into doing illustrations for the novel.

Kubo wanted to end the manga with Ichika and Kazui. He really didn't care about anything else from what it seems. Just that those two meeting happened in the very end.

I wish verduistering was the one doing translations, other people sometimes make awkward sentences or misunderstood words, or let their shipping bias seep into the translation. By the time they were corrected, simple-minded fans already ran with the previous inaccurate translation.

There was someone in the previous thread that said Orihime knew what Ichigo was talking about when he told her he needed to tell her something, and it turns out the person that gave us the summary to Byakuya/Rukia scene said the same thing.

Honestly, the source for that popularity comparison claim was iffy. I had the data from those 2006-2007 polls that was the origin of that fanlore, but the polls' methodology were not clear. In one of the polls, IchigoxTatsuki was even more popular than IchiRuki and RenRuki.

Is this what he really said back then?

Who knows.

He did say these then:
>SJ: Do you have any plans to make Ichigo and Rukia a couple?
>Kubo-sensei: I'm not going to confirm nor deny that. [Laughs]

>* 1:50 PM - Will there be an Isshin backstory? Yes! He knew from the start he was a Soul Reaper.

>Q: Speaking of Ichigo's relationships with his friends, there seems to be a love triangle between Ichigo, Rukia and Orihime. Do you delve more into this in later volumes?
>Tite Kubo: (laughs) I get asked about that a lot! I don't want to make Bleach into a love story because there are much more exciting things about their personalities and things that they can do instead of getting into the romance aspect of their relationships.

>Tite Kubo: After I finished drawing chapter one, I already knew that Ichigo's dad Isshin would be a Soul Reaper. At the time, I didn't plan on having leaders in the Soul Society, so I didn't plan on him being one of the leaders.
>Q: Will you feature a back story about Isshin?
>Tite Kubo: Yes, I will draw it!

>IGN: What are your plans for the future of Bleach? Do you have an ending in mind?
>Kubo: There is no ending for Bleach at the moment.
(so the thing about wanting to end with Ichigo's kid meeting Rukia's kid was a lie, or that answer was a lie)
>>
>>151599016
Yes.

Keep in mind they're not asking for romantic pairings, but the pair of characters they want on the cover.
>>
>>151599557
What he said is that the series was still going, not ending yet
>>
>>151589692
Kek
>>
>>151599557
He said this too:

Q: For a shonen series, Bleach spends a lot focusing on the emotions and different bonds between the characters. I’m sure you’re asked this a lot, but will we ever see any romance by the end of the series?
Kubo: I don’t really intend to make it a romantic story, but it’s one of the aspects of the series, so I put it in here and there.

And later in 2008, for the the Fade to Black movie guide interview he said this:

Q: What do you think the bond is that these two have with each other?
Kubo:: It’s different from friendship but it’s not an romantic feeling either, these 2’s relationship, I think there is no other relationship like them in other works where despite both standing in a very close position with each other it is not romance (laughs)
But in this year’s movie there is a scene where Ichigo says Rukia is his “Precious nakama” and I think that explains their relationship well.
>>
>>151599043
The AiHime fanclub at Bleachasylum had a decent amount of posters back during the site's prime. It was headed by Maltex, who most IR fans hated because of his translations. To this day I still don't know if they had a right to hate him because he was a shit translator or simply because he exposed their translations as biased towards IR.

Obviously the pairing didn't get to 2nd place because it's actually popular. Either they used bots or cleared their cache to vote multiple times. Or at least I always assumed AiHime placing that high was the result of mass cheating.

He should have included those much more exciting things about their personalities then. Considering what we actually got in the manga, this was a big fat lie. I'd have gladly taken several chapters worth of romance stuff, if that had meant the fight against Sniper Chicken and Asspull Thor had been halved, or if we could have skipped some of the mook Sternritter fights.
>>

I remember another translator the irs hated-sheetz. Every one that wasn't part of their clique basically.
>>
The relationship between Ichigo and Rukia always struck me as more of a bromance, like Riggs and Murtaugh in Lethal Weapon or any other buddy cop movie, so I'm ok with how things turned out. I'm kinda left cold by the last novel covering Rukia and Renji's wedding, since I don't really give any fucks about Renji in particular, so I didn't feel the need for them to explore that pairing beyond the technical info that they got married. I'd have been more interested in a "how Ichigo fell for Orihime" kind of story, but I guess the RR Wedding is a more convincing story hook in order to show where all the Soul Society people are, instead of doing something similar for Ichigo and Orihime. At least I got a half-assed proposal scene out of it.

It doesn't mean it wasn't canceled. It could just have been that editors suggested short time skip before the epilogue.

It was clearly canceled. With the way Kubo was pacing and spending his sweet time on irrelevant shit, it was as if he thought he had another 10 years to keep drawing Bleach.

From the start of Bleach, he already planned what his final chapter would look like. So even if it was canceled he already knew his ending.

Ichigo doesn't give a fuck about Orihime, guys.
>>
>>151605292
This scene is completely taken out of context. He doesn't tell her "no" because he doesn't give a shit about her or doesn't wanna hang out with her, it's because he's worried about the whole situation at hand and Orihime looks sad while watching him walk away because she also knows something is wrong.

Also she one of the people he thought about before completely breaking down(the other being Chad). If you can't accept that Ichigo cares for her a lot at this point in the story then thats on you.
>>
>>151605292
He obviously does throughout the entire series. You specifically picked a scene with him planning to secretly train with Ginjo. Something he kept from Orihime because Ginjo wasn't trustworthy and he didn't want her involved.

It's not like he was like "fuck you Orihime, I'll never visit Chad with you."

People are just oddly desperate to absolve Kubo of the climax of the final arc sucking. So they claim it was suddenly canceled leaving Kubo with no time. Despite the fact it's apparent that Kubo and his editors agreed to end Bleach at it's 15th anniversary a while ago, and Kubo dropped the ball and ran out of time because his pacing sucks.
>>
>>151606630
I heard that based on what authors of past popular WSJ titles have revealed in interviews, if your series is big, you'll be warned at least 6 months ahead that you gotta end it in this time span.

I don't know if this really was true in KT's situation, but I wouldn't be surprised if he miscalculated/was unwilling to improve his pacing despite knowing how many chapters he had left.

But at the end of the day it's all speculation.
>>
>>151607186
Bleach ended at it's 15th anniversary, while getting an announcement of a live action movie. That's not something that'd happen if it'd been suddenly canceled.

Toriko's author clearly got more than a year's warning for Toriko ending, and he sped things up to get to the conclusion. I doubt Bleach would get less warning. It's even possible that when they announced the TYBW would be the final arc at the start of it, they'd already agreed on Bleach's end date.
>>
>>151607555
Well, this arc was suppose to be the longest yet it was one year shorter than the HM one. Maybe he got fucked over with one less year.

the ending just didnt feel like bleach. it felt totally alien to what the manga was telling us for 15 years. feels like it was written by someone else.

>>151607725
The manga felt like it went on a different path a long time ago to me. I don't really get what the message of the manga was in general.

The ending felt like Bleach though-at least to me. I always imagined a happy ending for everyone with Ichigo's son being revealed in the end.

This. I don't know why people talk as if it all fell apart during the ending when the manga went downhill several years ago.

>>
>>151608617
Kubo probably didn't even remember Chad's promise desu. He was the nakama with the least amount of screentime and we didn't get to see him fight in any of the last two arcs PLUS he jobbed in both the SS and HM arcs.

Not him but when people criticize the "ending", they usually mean everything since the start of Ichigo&Orihime vs Yhwach (or since the ending announcement), since before these people still had some hope of answering the questions, characters getting involved etc.

No, it was he wouldn't use his fists for his own sake, which was him beating up on weaker people for shits and giggles.

>>151610244
Back when he first met Ichigo, he refused to use them in self-defense.

>>
>>151610532
Old news. It's the translation we need.
>>
>>151608617
How is becoming a PROFESSIONAL boxer against his character? If it were an underground boxer for the yakuza, maybe I'd agree with you, but he's having sanctioned fights. It's actually a step up from busting delinquents with Ichigo during their middle school days.

Also Uryu becoming a doctor is the best show don't tell of character development since it shows that he's rectified his relationship with his father after realizing the truth about what he was doing with his mother's corpse.

This anon >>151608891 gets it. Ihe ending is fine for an 'ending' as in no more chapters after this, hell you could take out the Ywach parts and place it after 423 and it'd still fit in fine for those "Bleach should have ended after Aizen" folks.
>>
is anybody buying the Blu Ray sets? I own the complete series on DVD but I think I might buy these to support the series since it is my favorite show and who knows if it gets enough support that sends a message that there is still a market for Bleach and could bring it back.

My guess is that he was warned, but for whatever reason he still writes as if he has all the time in the world.
In ch 665, 6 months prior to the last chapter, he wrote this scene which is a building block that hints at the ending (Uryuu becoming a doctor)
>>
>>151614860
It amazing the backstories Kubo comes up with for his characters. To think, all this time Chad was finding his true passion in life and cultivating his skills.

It's also amazing how he never decides to show them. I guess another drawn out Byakuya and Shiro-kun fight was needed.

Nice! More of Kubos hidden backstory. Ishida, in a moment of rebellion, gave up his dream of being a doctor.

I like their weird friendship/rivalry. Like that scene early on in Bleach when they awkwardly had lunch together on the roof.

I never found Ichigo's friends to be interesting so that's fine with me.

>>151615236
There are some things in the novels that I wish were put in the manga, rather than yet another drawn out fight.

Like the process of trials in which Hisagi and Kira were initially grilled for sympathizing with the enemy.

The whole thing with Nayura.

I always preferred his friends (even characters like Tatsuki, Keigo, and Mizuiro are more interesting) to the shinigami. I recognize that's not popular and they were never going to be front and center. Ichigo, himself, kind of disappeared in favor of the Gotei 13.

But, the heart wants what it wants.

Don't you find it suspect that after a long period without twitter, Kubo suddenly reappear on it to post:
1. Mayuri cosplay
2. Dead kid comic
with a span of 3 weeks, and then stopped posting anything afterwards. No replying to fans, no interacting with other people in the industry.

It's like he solely returns to twitter in order to tell people why Bleach ended abruptly, and that he wanted to quit, and he (Mayuri) does what he wants regardless of what others feel.

It was in a novel. Kira wasn't grilled for being sympathetic he just said he attacked Momo and Rangiku of his own accord not because Gin manipulated him which is the truth.

Hisagi on the other hand was considered sympathetic because he brought up Tosen's dead friend and how Central 46 failed to properly handle her case.

>>
>>151618801
Not really. Ichihime may be the endgame but that doesn't mean that Ulq/Ori existed only to prop it. The scene where Ulq reaches for Orihime and she reaches back had nothing to do with her feelings for Ichigo and plenty of the Ulq/Ori talks were about Ori's bond with all her friends rather than purely centering on her feelings for Ichigo.

Ulq/Ori was Kubo just doing the classic "cold-hearted villain meets pure girl, learns the power of love and friendship from her, dies tragically"-story.

10 second before he dies, he's bragging about murdering Ichigo in front of Orihime and destroying all her hopes and dreams.

He only comes to his realization after losing big time and seeing the reality of Orihime's infinite kindness.

"Yuzu says Orihime acts as a mother so she is very happy when she’s around. Karin agrees when asked and says she’s reminded of her mother, Masaki, and looks at the large poster in the room when they talk more about it fondly."
>>
-Rukia and Renji invited Gotei members to have some sake (like a tea party) where they announced they were getting married like this,
Rukia’s face gets redder and redder from anxiety when Renji, finally, stands up straight nervously with her next to him. She deeply thanks everyone for coming and Renji spills it with a “We- we are getting married!” declaration and there’s shocked silence for a moment until Rangiku, Hanataro, Kiyone, and others congratulate them, people aren’t surprised by them getting together (I think this part is translated? But I’ll put it here because I found it really cute and humorous how it was written.)

-Rukia goes to Byakuya’s place to inform she’s going to do the marriage enrollment, Chiyo appears again (Rukia’s servant & friend from Makoto-sensei’s last novel The Death Save The Strawberry) to help her

-Iba takes care of Komamura’s dog, Goro. I haven’t seen any confirmation on the wolf cubs’ relation to Komamura (I sort of skimmed here a bit sorry)

-Renji and Rukia run into Iba & the doggos on their way and they get friendly here

-Rukia and Renji are packing and looks to be getting a mansion/house to live in together in the first central ward area due to the upcoming establishment of marriage (this is before the ceremony)

-Everyone’s fave forgotten shinigami Ryuunosuke Yuki & others appear here for a short bit to help with moving and duties (he’s confirmed alive at least? they don’t do anything important)

-Ryuusuke & other members give them some device box from Urahara-san that flashes into white smoke, Urahara greets them which Rukia & Renji try to reply to and are surprised by being congratulated for their marriage. It is a recorded voice mail. They also receive a gift from him with the device. (He’s being shady about some technology gift they must keep a secret? Don’t quote me on this part.)
>>
>>151620784
-Renji & Rukia have a meal at Byakuya’s place in silence which makes Renji nervous and they look to get a kimono because Byakuya asked about his dress earlier with Rukia. Later all three go to get their marriage papers officialized and announced as an official couple, the two get emotionally happy over this on finally being married.

The wedding ceremony section:
-It starts with Orihime at a park by the train station where she and Renji&Rukia meet up

-Rukia asks how the shop is prospering since Orihime works as a regular employee at a bakery’s cake store called “ABCookies” ever since after high school graduation three summers ago

-Because Orihime relied on distant relative’s living expenses, but since they would only give assistance until high school graduation, she had to look for work.

-Just from the air that Renji and Rukia seem more intimate than before, Orihime wonders happily with a big smile - “Oh, you two started dating, isn’t it?!” Orihime’s intuition is sharp although dull many times (?)

-Rukia is taken aback by the suddenness that she’s laughing nervously and stumbling for words. “Inoue, Renji and I… We entered today… ah……. ah oh yeah um… entering… We entered to get married.” sort of thing. Orihime is really happy to hear this that she’s begun to cry tearfully with a shining smile

-Wondering if Rukia has told Ichigo yet, Rukia tells her she wanted to tell her female best friend first of the news before heading over to see Ichigo

-Riruka works at Yukio’s enterprise company, works as a designer in the apparel department

-Jackie Tristan too works at the same company but she flies all over the world to developing countries as charity, so they rarely see each other in person
>>
>>151620847
-Orihime calls Riruka and talks about Rukia getting married and the ceremony is approaching in a couple of weeks, she wanted to make a wedding dress for her at first. Riruka yells that it’s not possible for a beginner to do in two weeks in which Orihime thinks over again with the suggestion of a wedding veil instead. They agree and order the materials.

-Ichigo is a university student coming home from afternoon class (doesn’t mention what field/career)

-Tatsuki does karate

-All the human friends are gathered at Kurosaki Clinic including Tatsuki, Keigo, and Mizuiro and the two Kurosaki sisters

-The later four’s careers aren’t mentioned

-They’re all eating cakes Orihime brought from ABCookies and working on the veil progressively together and it takes them hours until completion

-Orihime liked flowers since a long time ago. They are putting texture of strawberry flower petals on the hem of the veil. In the language of flowers, it means happy family which she says would be perfect as a motif on the veil for the loving couple which everyone sewed some petals on then put the gold embroidery through.(Ichika isn’t really mentioned in the novel but it’s a speculation on connecting the dots where her name comes from with this info drop)

-Uryu is a medical student in medical school. He’s mended his relationship with his father but does not answer any more questions about it.

-Chad’s sparring partner is named Daniel (安堂ダニエル) a heavyweight Japanese champion, he leaves after getting the call

-Yuzu says Orihime acts as a mother so she is very happy when she’s around. Karin agrees when asked and says she’s reminded of her mother, Masaki, and looks at the large poster in the room when they talk more about it fondly.

-Orihime wears a pink dress made of fluffy chiffon material at the wedding ceremony (putting this here for the colorists/editors)

-After the ceremony is done with Renji and Rukia being wed, there’s a feast.

Rukia swears an oath to herself that it won’t be too far in the future she will be captain with the haori, she just needs more time

-Four hours after the reception, the humans are now leaving to head home and they give gift bags.

-There is a message from Isshin given to Rukia. Isshin tells he is the uncle to Kaien. At the time of his nephew’s death, he was the tenth captain so it was a shock. Of course, he had heard the circumstances from Ukitake, and thought Rukia needed a helping hand/comfort most, so he visited the 13th barracks many times but when he saw Rukia’s painful profile/look, he could not call out anything.

-Renji tells Rukia to remain and he’ll escort the humans to the senkaimon so that they can head home because he is a part of the 6th squad.

-What follows after are the last few pages with Renji + Ichigo and Ichigo + Orihime which are translated

-Hisagi’s 2017 novel will reveal the mystery of the world, the Fullbringers and Arrancar, the Soul King, and the great aristocrat houses

I guess they skipped the dating part and went straight to marriage.

I figured they would. I always thought they had feelings for each other, especially back during their academy days which is why Rukia was so hurt by Renji letting her go.
>>
Did Yuzu have a incestuous feelings for Ichigo or Kazui?
>>
>>151621224
Neither. It's a scene taken out of context.
>>
>>151621205
Still. I can't believe it took both Ichigo and Renji three years after the Yhwach battle to actually get their waifus. Have they never heard of post-war baby booms?
>>
>>151621126
Or their courtship period is very short., during which they haven't had the chance to visit the human world. I don't think they go there very often, once a year tops. But not "chapter 686 is the first time they've been there since the end of the war" like some said.

Of course, he had heard the circumstances from Ukitake, and thought Rukia needed a helping hand/comfort most, so he visited the 13th barracks many times but when he saw Rukia’s painful profile/look, he could not call out anything.
Holy shit, Isshin knew who Rukia was the whole time?

I can believe it with Ichigo. Renji takes more suspension of disbelief, but then they just became friends again not too long ago, perhaps in between the high workload especially Rukia's as an acting captain, they preferred to keep the status quo for a while.

I get that. They were all probably waiting for it to happen. I'm just saying that it took a really, really long time. I'm just shocked cause I thought it had already happened or was about to when Renji gave his speech to Ichigo.
>>
>>151621997
Not really. Masaki as a mother was described as very beautiful and kind in the earlier chapters and that also applies to Orihime. Plus they do look alike in appearance, the same body type and long, warm hair color.
>>
>>151621997
Because Orihime is cheerful, friendly and nurturing like their mother. Because Ichigo probably brings Orihime (the girl he is in love with) around his family a lot.
>>
>>151622059
According to the novel, it took three years for SS to be up and running again. Announcing their wedding during those years would've been insensitive.
>>
>Because Orihime relied on distant relative’s living expenses, but since they would only give assistance until high school graduation, she had to look for work.
Is getting a scholarship really hard in Japan? I mean, Orihime has the third highest grade in her school. Or could it be their school is actually shitty on a national level so she's only competitive in their area but only so-so compared to the best students in Tokyo/Japan? I find it hard to believe as Japan even gives scholarships to foreign students.
>>
>>151622214
Uryu didn't even get a scholarship and he was number one in the entire school. His dad is the one paying for his higher education.
>>
>>151622132
That's still shilling. All these similarities weren't brought up until the last minute.

>>151622189
No excuse for shilling.
>>
>>151622214
There's also the matter of being able to support herself financially if she is only working part time. She probably needed to work full time to pay for her apartment and living expenses and college simply was not an option.

She is working at a bakery and she did say one of her dream careers was to become a baker.
>>
>>151622262
His family's loaded so he doesn't need a scholarship.

I'll just assume all these fighting supernatural beings and skipping school may have caused their grades to drop or they missed the deadlines on scholarship application.
>>
>>151622214
To be honest, yes. in Japan it's far more than just "That guy is smart/athletic" They also have to have a prestigious family that's been involved in politics or can in some way increase the schools power.. Ryuuken doesn't care for that kinda thing and Orihime is literally the spawn of a whore and a drunkard with a dead brother. It sucks but that's how it is. It's enough that Orihime was smart enough to go to college in the first place, usually in that country after high school you're expected to go into a field of work.
>>
>>151622303
>All these similarities weren't brought up until the last minute.
Actually they were. They were very apparent in the manga. Some people just decided to not believe it and now act surprised when characters comment on what was an obvious parallel.
>>
>>151622303
>All these similarities weren't brought up until the last minute.

When would that be brought in the manga though? The twins hardly got screentime the final arc except for the one panel and the final chapter + the nakama were at war anyways then it skipped to the 10year ending and that comment would've felt out of place since Orihime was already married into the family.
>>
>>151622303
>All these similarities weren't brought up until the last minute.
They were though. It was so obvious that Masaki was Orihime, Isshin was Ichigo, and Ryuken was Uryu.
>>
>>151622303
>All these similarities weren't brought up until the last minute.
You'd notice them earlier if you weren't busy insisting Masaki was (only) a parallel to Rukia.
>>
>>151622382
I see.

If that's the system, I suppose the foreign scholarships are given primarily for diplomacy purposes, and maybe some "sorry for WWII" kind of thing.
>>
>>151622462
It's not even that they look alike. Lots of characters in Bleach look alike. They had the same personality, the same quirks and the same mannerisms.

Exactly. The only one's claiming that they didn't were IR fans and we all know why.

To be fair, Masaki-Isshin and Rukia-Ichigo shares some similarities as well, but less so their personalities/looks but their situation. It also negates one anti-IR argument at the time that Rukia is too old for Ichigo and they can't be together because she's shinigami and he's human.

The EBTR arc was something I see could be used as basis for predicting either pairing. It's just that hardcore shippers on either side refused to see anything that supports their rival ship.
>>
>>151622877
Oh yea, I totally saw the Ichigo rescuing Rukia in this scene but with the under the arm thing since the words they said were different. After that Ichigo throws Rukia to Renji while Masaki happily thanks Isshin while being fully naked.
>>
>>151622710
Actually Japan (through JICA, partnership with World Bank and other donor organizations) gives scholarships every year to students from developing countries.
>>
>>151622877
Isshin gives up being a shinigami to look after Masaki and falls in love with her. How is that similar to Ichigo and Rukia? Why is this even still a thing?
>>
>>151622984
>>151622710
So basically scholarships for Japanese students are just harder to get in general.

There is. The words Ichigo says to Rukia when he rescues her are what he says to Kenpachi when he saves him.

>>151623431
I'm not counting on it. Kubo didn't even want to draw the sketches in the first. We'll get sketches in the next novel, and then the one-shot for the live-action but that's it. If there is a databook, I don't see it being made for quite awhile.

It kinda annoys me how Kubo did such a shoddy job of tying stuff up that he needs not one, but several novels to take care of things. All that shit, including the wedding novel, should have been in the manga proper. Even his novel illustrations look like quick sketches, instead of properly inked. I hope he's done for good with being a mangaka. He clearly doesn't give much fucks anymore and hasn't for quite some time.

I've seen quite a bit of those "muh parallels" collages now and going by how Bleach in general developed, I wonde if people are mistaking Kubo just reusing cool poses and panel compositions for some deeper meaning. Remember those collages showing just how often he reused the "teleports behind you" panel composition? Stands to reason that he'd reuse other stuff as well, without any deeper meaning behind it, regardless of ship.

This is very true, anon. Facial expressions and paneling mean nothing in Bleach. Most of these parallels are jokes.

Masaki's personality and Orihime's are blatantly similar though. I don't think that's even a "parallel." I don't know what you'd call it, they just share personality traits and act the same way.

I remember arguing way back during the Mexico arc in some general forum how Orihime was gradually set up as the love interest and Rukia is more of a buddy to Ichigo and "friend with more life experience" to Orihime, but it was like talking to a wall with some individuals. It was then that I realized, that with shippers, it didn't matter whatever kind of evidence or conclusions I'd bring up, regardless of whether I backed it up with chapter/page numbers. A shipper won't examine the facts and then arrive at a conclusion, but rather they set out with the firm belief that their preferred conclusion is indeed true and then they sift through the source material for any "evidence" they can find to make their assumption seem plausible.

>>151624396
I still kinda arseblasted tha tKubo never really did anything with Tatsuki. They had that whole nice "princess and her dragon" thing going in the beginnig, played well off each other and Tatsuki had as strong a motivation as any character to get in on the magic punchathon train. She could have been a great moral support for Orihime and a much needed second character to play off and flesh Orihime out, beyond her attachment to Ichigo and the once in a blue moon talk with Chad. Yet Kubo ignored that avenue time and time again until it was too late.

I can kind of understand that though since Kubo did shill IR like crazy (but also since they were kind of the faces of the manga too). And if you started watching from the beginning you could definitely feel the bond Ichigo and Rukia had.

I did feel it, but it was pretty much done after the SS arc. Their entire relationship after that consisted of big reunion moments that were followed with Rukia encouraging him with some pep talk and tough love, and thats it.

HM-reunion/hits him and yells at him at first/"man in my heart" pep talk/pretty much it

FB-reunion/gives powers back/hits him and yells at him at first/pep talk about despair/pretty much it

Quincy arc-bond isn't highlighted at all, but they still fight and yell at each other in the last chapter because of their different parenting skills.

It got boring to me.

Kubo rarely gets rid of characters, but when he does they are the ones I enjoy.

>>151626140
I don't know. I didn't really watch the anime. I just read the manga. I always thought he'd end up with Orihime and Rukia his bro. I also thought Yoruichi/Urahara was a thing, though.

When you're eaten by a hollow you cease to exist until that hollow is slain by a zanpakuto, then your soul enters the reincarnation cycle. Sora was a rare case where he held onto his will but he was still a run of the mill hollow so he'd still be reincarnated upon death. That's why Masaki and Sora will never meet their loved ones again as themselves. They no longer exist like that.
