Bleach Creator Nails Cosplay

Long running manga Bleach has finally come to an end leaving it’s creator, Tite Kubo, with spare time on his hands, so what to do? Why not turn to cosplay and have a go at one of his own characters?

Here’s Kubo san pulling off an awesome Captain of the 12th Division, Mayuri Kurotsuchi.

How cool is that? I can’t wait to see if he does any of the other characters in the near future!

Nisekoi & Bleach Manga Come To An End

After what seems like forever, two hugely popular manga are coming to an end in Japan. The August edition of Shonen Jump will see both Nisekoi and Bleach coming to a close. The edition will be a double edition, issues 36 – 37, and both manga will be getting a special colour page. Nisekoi will be seeing 25 pages for the last outing with a double colour page spread in the middle.

As a Bleach fanboy (Toshiro Hitsugaya FTW!), I’ll be sad to see it end after 15 long years but creator Tite Kubo is promising the series will go out on a high.

Bleach & One Piece Heroes Drawn Before Your Eyes

VIZ Media recently posted a video for the promotion of their Shonen Jump Alpha digital manga anthology showing manga authors, Tite KuboEiichiro Oda, drawing Ichigo from Bleach and Luffy from One Piece, respectively.

It’s amazing to see these artists draw these heroes right before your eyes, transforming what was a blank canvas into a piece of art.
