Bleach: Redux

by Rip the Hunter
Myself and others were extremely disappointed with Ulquiorra's death in the official Bleach manga, so I've taken it upon myself to draw out what could've possibly happened had Orihime pulled her head out of her ass and saved him.

WARNING: UlquiHime. Any negative comments (or futile attempts at validating other ships that make even less sense (ie: IchiHime)) will be deleted.

NOTE: READ RIGHT TO LEFT LIKE JAPANESE MANGA.

As sad as I am that you stopped, at the same time, I'm kinda happy. Your epic awesomeness was gonna make the universe implode if you drew the entire story all the way to the end! If not the universe, then my head, at least, was gonna implode from the awesomeness of your comic!

@ulquihime: I very much agree. I wish I had half Rip's skill at drawing backgrounds and working with shading! As things stand, I have a more sketch-style of art. No where near Rip's level of awesomeness.

@Kavyle: Ah, it's all good. I may not like being reminded of the Redux, but I like comments on my work regardless of what work it is, especially when the comments are long and/or thoughtful.

I kind of fell off the Bleach bandwagon a really long time ago. I actually cast it off outright in utter disgust right after the Fullbringer Arc had ended (and to be honest, I only really read the end of it, after the Shinigami returned to fight the Fullbringers...but I didn't even bother with most of that anyway, cuz some of it was just so obnoxious I can't even. Like, everything about video-game-kid and history-hack guy infuriated me because everything about them was so deus ex machina.) I'd heard about all the stupid shit Kubo had done with the story after that, like making the Kurosaki clan a sect of Quincy, and that Ichigo's inner Hollow had actually been a Vasto Lorde or something that attacked Masaki in the real world and Isshin did something to save her. I dunno. I forget all the details at this point. I just remember that the whole thing pissed me off enough that I turned down a commission worth $250 because it would've forced me to draw Quincy Masaki and 'White' as I've been told the Hollow was called.

I took what barely-little I knew of the arc and spliced it into my fanfiction, posted it, and called it a day. Fought with a guy over on ff.net who thought he could turn my comic into a panel-for-panel, word-for-word fanfiction that he claimed was his own brainchild, and didn't seem at all flustered by like 10 people being like "Dude. Srsly. This is the Redux. Stahp. You're not fooling anyone." I don't know if ff.net ended up taking his story down or not, but I remember it being annoying.

Eidolon, my original creation, is actually doing pretty good. It's not nearly as popular as I'd hoped it would be, but I guess I can only blame myself for that. I hate advertising, so I count on word of mouth or random chance for people to find it. Some people just never hit it big...other people get way more popular than you'd ever assume they would be worthy of. It doesn't really matter. There's about 3-5 semi-regular commenters on there and that's really all I need to encourage me most days. I like Eidolon enough to draw it even if I'm the only one who will ever know how it ends. I guess I'll just have to see what happens. It's a pretty long story.

@Kavyle: It's weird, but that's exactly the game sequence I always had in mind when I drew this page. There's just something so visceral about the idea that you have to scream but you can't cuz you have no mouth :|

Damn, man, I remember reading this comic years ago when it was still updating. I don't think you were even halfway through at that point, and I'd all but lost interest in Bleach and even in webcomics. Even now, I'm generally uninterested in Bleach, but I had a friend remind me of this comic, and I remembered how much I liked it.

And I still love it, and I'm so glad you kept it up all these years and even provided a written version of how the comic would have continued.

I also hope your current project is going well and not giving you any creative grief.

I'm sorry to remind you about your old work, but I wanted you to know how good your storytelling is, though I'm sure you're aware, and how much your comic is appreciated.

Thank you again! I'll be sure to check out your current project as well, though I'm not sure when. c:

Thank You
@Bojack727: Your comment freaking cracked me up. So much, in fact, that I was pushed to the point of creating an account just to thank you for the comment. Don't ask me why, but yeah. BRAVO

Even Tite Kubo would be proud of that Rukia panel!
