That's a fun premise though not too unlike Bleach. I just love the London setting and if only Kubo can draw more background LOL

 

That Soul Society at the end though...hey, don't tell me this is Kubo's way of expanding the universe. Bleach is Japan's SS and now we have England and London's?

More likely Europe's Soul Society, with the potential direction being about the natural fauna of the Soul Society (though it strongly implies the Seireitei has a "kill on sight" order regarding dragons).

Meh an Meh. 


Show me the way to go home - I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago - And it’s gone right to my head
Wherever I may roam - On land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

This one-shot is probably to test the water. I mean dragons~hollows, rangers~shinigami, Reverse London~Seireitei and that Soul Society West Branch at the end kinda seals the deal...Kubo is basically telling fans ''hey, want a second Bleach Western ver? If reception is good I might start it''.

 

I don't necessarily need a Western version (though if it's like Bleach then I don't mind. The overall quality aside, can't deny it brought me Gin, Aizen, Stark, Shunsui, Rangiku etc. I don't mind having more characters to love haha) but I do want al the unsolved questions in Bleach answered and so far the Shuuhei novel is doing that but not 100% satisfying.

Even the title-page spells out Bleach :lol:

 

Wasn't bad, a soft sequel to Bleach with a different setting might work, since the premise wasn't the problem that series had ^^

My god, I got so hyped when I heard this could be a follow-up of Bleach! *.* Deep inside I still need confirmation that Urahara and Yoruishi ended up together.

 

Having said that, this was fun. I felt it was a bit heavy on dialogue and low in action, and the premise a little bit confusing at start, but still fun overall. As usual, the art is something I've always loved about Kubo and in here it was pretty cool too.

Let's see where it leads :)

was a decent one shot. That "show me your panties" screaming and all the panty talk from the male MC is pretty annoying though, if that would follow into the serialization it would be a total no-go for me.

 

Also the weapons of the witches look totally lame und stupid...

It looks like something got lost to the abyss of time, apparently:

Soul Society being the "East Branch" may have existed in the original Japanese as far back as chapter 50.

So do hollows also exist in this region? Because their origin is different than these Dragons, they come from corrupted souls, they don't naturally exist in a Reverse world...

So Bleach is indeed back, in some form. With Soul Society's West Branch instead of East Branch we know and love.

This makes sense after all... Why would this after life world be of Japanese culture for everybody? You die in South Africa or Norway and the next second you're in feudal Japan  :laugh: This also put into perspective where Yhwach's flashback really took place.

 

I was not a big fan of the one shot Burn The Witches, mostly because I'm already bored with the panties jokes. It was so obvious that there would be this kind of jokes that it's not that funny... But it was a pleasure to admire Kubo's art again. It's been so long. Also, the reversed London set + witches feels unoriginal. It was done countless times.

 

Anyway, it could still be cool if this thing get serialized... Maybe not weekly (Bleach's serialization almost killed Kubo sensei), but maybe in a monthly magazine instead?

 

Of course, now all I want is a crossover between the West and East branch of Soul Society...
