No regrets!
Hi Rip, this is going to be a long post (but your used to that from me :P), so let me say this to you ... you should have no regrets!
You’re work is always awesome, this chapter included. Your drawing is beautiful and even the ending as it is here, even though it is not the ending you planned, really works. I can understand that you might not be very happy about it, since every creator struggles to reach their own standard, but if there had to be a unforeseen ending, then this was it. I love the 'open' ending as it is now, were you can just create the rest of the story in your dreams.
I will love reading the rest of your story on fanfiction just as much as I would have been reading the doujin. Don’t feel bad about changing your plans in this regard. Even if you would try to continue while not feeling good about it, you would only make yourself miserable. I think I speak for everybody when I say that we do not want that for you. For us, your readers, it is more important that you stay true to yourself. We might not know you personally, but the dedication and passion for your work, as well as your creativity and spirit, have always shown through. That is what makes your creations as great as they are, whatever they are.

As soon as I finish with the BR story on ff I will check out your other work. If its anything that is up my alley, then you can be sure to hear from me some more :P
Be well and have a great summer!

I'm not a hard core IchiRuki fan (although I agree with the paring), but I had to hold back a few tears on this one. Beautiful work Rip.
I will wait in anticipation for your next arc :)

Ieeeek, the further we are coming to the end of this arc the more excited I get about your next one. The bad guy is dead, Ulquiorra is ok again (although I doubt he liked being carried by Ichigo, even for that short amount of time) and Ichigo is losing his powers. I can't wait to see how you are going to wrap everything up.
Oh and Nel's release was just beautiful, very well done!

Rip you are merciless, the poor thing is in five pieces, five! And they aren't big pieces either ^^ Well ... at least he is alive, poor Ulquiorra.

hehe, Ichiguppies
@Rip the Hunter: OMG you're right! Our last conversation was about Ichiguppies, which was already two chapters ago!
So I really didn’t say anything about Ch26 … Weird … I'm not known for keeping my mouth shut ^^
I was probably distracted at the time. But don’t worry, you are allowed to message, I won’t think you are a stalker :P (ohh and Ch26 was great too, better late than never right :D).

Woehoe, Aizen is done for, PARY TIME!!!
What can I say Rip, your work is perfect as always. I gobbled it up, as usual.
There is only one thing that my mind is screeming now.
"Ulquiorra, where are you?!?"

Can't wait for the next chapter :)

Bow down to the master!
No comments what so ever. Epic epic epic. What a way to end the year!!!
Ok one comment, the use of Ulquiora's tail as a fishing line. Brilliant and hilarious. One of the best moments in Redux history :)

ty ty ty ty ty
Yay! Worth all the wait :) This time I'll keep my comments short ^^

1. Because I'm not as smart as Ulquiorra, I really appreciated the explanation of Aizen’s Bankai, so ty for that :P
2. The humor between Ichi and Ulqui is perfect, you can go on and on with those two. A little bit like Ichi and Uryu, but better :)
3. If anybody ever doubted as to why having a tail is beneficial, then there should be no doubts anymore, loooooove it!
4. Ty you, Ulqui, for kicking Ichi into gear. The ultimate tag team is here to save the day.

Oh and ofc ...
98. Love your drawing!
99. Love your storytelling!
100. Love your commitment to your art! Because that is what this is. ART !!!

Perfect as always
... that’s all I have to say ... but of course, I can and will say more ... I always do.

Love the background work, I can't even imagine how much time and work you would have to have put in there, but it looks gorgeous!
It goes without saying that Ulquiorra and Butterflaizen shine as well. The backgrounds may be intense, but never manage to overpower those two.
As far as story content, this chapter really was all about Ulquiorra, and boy did he deliver! Or I should say, you delivered. He might be taking a beating, but he has finally got that 'fighting for a cause' strength working for him. YAY :) Fight on! Ulquiorra. Fight on!

Sigh, that was all the good things, but man, you are so mean stopping at such an intense cliffhanger Ò_Ó
I kept clicking wanting to go to the next page, only to be confronted with the harsh reality ... the is no next page … ó_ò ... yet …
Which means that, as always, at the end of every chapter, I am hooked. Hooked like a poor, dangling worm at the end of the fishing line. Can't wait for the next update!

Holy crap those eyes are intense and creepy. That's a lot of emotions for nihilism.
I don't know who has the highest freeking-out factor, Ulqui in the first frame or Aizen in the bottom-left ...
Dang that is some flowy hair, what kind of conditioner does he use?

oh hell no!
Is mister butterfly using his tricks again! Cheating bastard!!! But then ... he is the bad guy ... so he has very little need of honor and that kind of thing.
Btw, love Orihime's reflection in Ulquorra's eye. Subtle but instandly clear. Loooooving it!!

wake up call
lol! Is Ichigo waking up at this point or not? Makes me wander what kind of alarm he uses to get up in the morning. I mean, if an explosion of this size can't even wake him up ... then he has to have one hell of an alarm clock for school days :P

ACCEPTING EMOTIONS
Ulquiorra will never be a character that is ruled by his emotions (thank god, or in this case, thank YOU ^^) or he wouldn't be the Ulquiorra we all love. But it is nice that you show how he is learning/understanding/accepting them within himself, especially since his new found strength is build on it. The fact that he can feel pity but not lose his mind is a testimony to his development as a character.

All I can say is, 'I PITY THE FOOL' ... who thinks he can push around the awesomeness that is Ulquiorra.
Can't wait for the next chapter to see how you are going to display this showdown.

SO BEAUTIFUL IT HURTS
How to best describe Ulquiorra's emotion when 'Orihime' yells she hates him ... shock? pain? panic? fear? hurt?
The look in his eye ... like he is being ripped in two. A sense of loss such as he has never experienced before.

I don't know how you manage to do this everytime Rip, but you have managed to put so much expression in just that one eye. He feels real, I just want to run to him and hug him saying it will be ok.

*bow down to the master*

@Rip the Hunter: Thought there was something missing ^^ The transition is better now :)


and squeeeeeeeeel, gotta love this form, its evil deliciousness like no tomorrow :S
now I get it ^^
Epic way of working with Aizen's mind-f*ck.
I had to re-read it to realize that this is actually Ulquiorra. It makes sense having him appear as Ichigo's hollow form. I mean, its Ichi's nightmare after all, his 'shadow world' (don't know who you want to call it).
Feel like a fool though for not noticing the first time. Why else would Ichigo be surprised to see his hollow form unless he knows its not himself.
