Like everywhere in the world, Tokonosu City had transformed into hell: previously, the streets were full of laughing citizens enjoying every aspect of their lives, stores and other businesses were completely functional, and the pleasant weather served only to enhance the ambience. This atmosphere was ripped apart by a killer pandemic which curtailed the lifespan of normal people, and reanimated "them" into empty, hollow bodies. It had taken less than a few days for this highly contagious disease to spread around the world reducing billions of humans to mere hundreds. However, even though hell had certainly arrived, hope still lives on in the survivors who fight for their very lives.
In one area of Tokonosu lay a neighborhood with colorful houses, white fences, and a narrow road with yellow dashes that served for transportation. Luckily, this area prior to the Outbreak of the virus wasn't very dense in population, and as a result few of"them" were raised

Bleach OC: Uraawase SenakaBleach OC: Uraawase Senaka5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Name: Uraawase Senaka
Age: 897 (Appears to be in her late teens)
Alliance: 8th Division Captain
Appearance: Captain Uraawase is a very stunning, short Shinigami with black hair cut just a bit longer than that of a boy's normal style. This haircut is to keep her midnight locks from getting in the way of her piercing, sea-green eyes - eyes that are able to send shivers down the spines of those who get in her way. While her face is somewhat more rounded than many others, it suits her quite well, although it can make her look slightly younger than she actually is. Because her hair doesn't really cover much of her ears, one can see all the piercings she has acquired over the years. There are eight charms in her left ear and five in her right. While she is certainly a stunning Shinigami, especially because of her eyes, Uraawase Senaka is one of those imposing few who openly knows it, and it causes her to be confident to

Appearance: Captain Kuchigane’s tale is an ancient one, having been born over two millennia ago and spending the majority of her long, storied life as a member of the Gotei 13 and its military forces.

I thought that I would give some insight as to how I draw Bleach Happy To Serve You. HardcoreHunter made a post like this on how he WRITES it, so I thought I would do the same. Because most of the creative decisions are his, all the questions I get are left for him to answer since all I do is go by his script. So this article won't be an answer list to a Q&A and will instead be an in-depth look into my production process.
The goal is to make Bleach: Happy To Serve You look like the product of one person, and that is possible through my willingness to go by his script, our foundation from his funny skits and my character outfit designs posted on the Adult Swim message board (Bleach section) months prior to starting this comic, and our exchange of ideas for jokes and story points. However, our processes are very different. He takes an hour to write one chapter. I need roughly a month and a half to produce the 16-20 pages, plus the De

She couldn't help but sit there and cry; she just couldn't take it anymore, it was too much. She had watched over and over again as Ichigo was taken away by Rukia or some other girl. And the fact that he could barely even talk to her or look at her didn't help. She loved him, why wouldn't he see that? Why couldn't he see how much she cared for him, loved him?
Orihime Inoue looked up at starry sky, fresh, wet tears running down her face and dripping onto her brand new shirt Rangiku had bought her for her birthday. Her hands dug into the moist ground, causing some dirt to get caught in her nails, but she didn't care. She was already a mess. Her dark orange hair was astray everywhere, several pieces clinging to the back of her neck, and to her forehead, while several just hung in her face. Her knee length purple skirt was dirtied with the dirt she was sitting on, and it looked like it had caught on something as many parts of the skirt were torn, or ripped. The shirt itself wa

“You soul reapers…you thought you could trick me?!” Grimmjow’s eyes blazed with fury as he stepped inside the room. He stopped for a moment when his eyes met Rukia’s. “Tch…I didn’t think you were even still alive, let alone standing. It doesn’t change a thing though.” His lips curled upward, baring his feline teeth. “You’re all going to die! Starting with the brat!”
Rukia pushed Ichigo behind her, his small arms tight around her. Chappy, spun her knives for a moment. “I don’t think so.” She lunged at the blue haired espada, making sure to keep him distracted from her mistress and Ichigo. Urahara was eyeing Ulquiorra with a curious expression on his face. He tipped his hat downward a bit and looked up. “You aren’t impulsive at all are you, my green eyed friend? Unlike your partner over there, you’re more cautious and reserved, am I right?”

Ichigo looked back at the door in excitement, almost as if he had wished for Ulquiorra to walk through. Inoue on the other hand stood in horror, as if she had foreseen Ichigo's dreadful fate as Ulquiorra began to walk into the heavy spirit powered room.
'She's always been mine. I'm taking back what you stole from me.' Ichigo said with confidence, still holding Inoue in his loving embrace.
Inoue struggled to set herself free, knowing of the consequences that would take place if Ichigo was to move even an inch forward. Ulquiorra spotted her expression and walked closer to Ichigo, his overpowering aura standing just before Ichigo's pale face. His face, unlike Ichigo's, was not that of understanding, hope or even confidence, but that of misunderstanding and rage; seeping through his veins and making prominent bulges of skin on the surface of his arms. As Ichigo prepared to make Ulquiorra even more jealous, with Inoue firmly in his grasp, he edged forward to peck her once again, however thi

"But I feel so useless if I'm not doing something! Please at least let me set the table."
Ichigo sighed in resignation and Orihime glowed with pride as she made her way over to the cupboard to retrieve the needed dishware for the evening meal.
Watching his wife happily go about arranging the dishes on the table, he couldn't help but be grateful that they had managed to understand each other and the way that they dealt with differences or arguments early on in Orihime's pregnancy so that they had a better idea of how they might handle things properly in the future. Orihime had been about two months along when she had discovered that she was pregnant, and now here she was at five months and they were trying to prepare for not just one but three babies at the same time.
He had been really surprised that he had taken the news so well, Orihime and his sisters as well. It was his dad and friends that had the most animated

But then I learned that the Winter War actually took place in October, and by the time I realized it well, the point is I can't change it now. But luckily I had already specified that it was a rather warm day in February last chapter, so there shouldn't be much of a problem.)

Remember Those Great Days...Warm, bright sunlight poured in through the open windows, heating up the small enclosed room. Usually this little room didn't suffer from overheating, but today it felt like a furnace inside there! Shuffling and shifting about, she tried her best to avoid the boxes that had piled up around her. She carefully stepped over one box, but only to end stepping inside of another one. Turning slowly to keep from knocking over the box she stood in, she gently went to step across another box, but lost her balance and toppled over. Now lying on top of her annoyed brother, she grinned innocently, hoping he wouldn't be too angry. He glared back at her for a second with an annoyed look showing in his violet eyes, and then shook his head.Remember Those Great Days...3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

I can't remember much from before I was changed. I get images every once in a while. A large tree. A red ball. A warm hearth. Orange hair. I'm was never sure why but the orange hair always shook my chest with fear. It was long and on the head of a woman but her face has no features in my memories and never did.
I don't even remember what my name was before I was changed. All I remember about who I was from before is that I worked with wood. I don't know if I was a carpenter or a man who worked on building houses. But all I remember is the smell of wood waking me in the morning and laying me to sleep every night.
My only wish would be to remember if I had family or if I was loved.

Don't Say Goodbye
He wasn't exactly sure how to tackle the situation at hand.
When he had left for class yesterday, Ichigo had found a random girl passed out on the sidewalk. She looked fairly beat up and dirty, and considering he wasn't an asshole who would just leave her there, he took her into his apartment.
She looked dirty, yet still kept this "clean" complexion to her. She had some dirt marks on her face as if she had been in a fight, and her expensive looking clothes were ruffled and ripped. She didn't look necessarily unhealthy or malnourished. She looked quite healthy actually, aside from her few bruises and scratches.
Considering that, Ichigo inevitably, had missed class due to his pondering over what exactly he was going to do with the girl. He couldn't have just left her in his apartment unsupervised, nor could he have just left

Oh, wait, this wasn't science class.

I would advise that you reference a person you know, maybe a family member or a celebrity. It's your choice. Also, remember, elaborate your thoughts, include emotions that can be felt, and show not tell. And don't be grandiloquent with me," said the teacher.

Ichigo smiled to himself as he watched Orihime all but drool over the food he had brought for their light lunch. He had kept the food simple and fairly light so that they could have a nicer dinner later, but she was acting as if he had brought a seven-course gourmet spread rather than some rice balls, a couple of rolled omelets and a small variety of other foods. When he had first told her that he would be providing their lunch himself and then taking her out to dinner, Orihime had insisted that she be allowed to bring something so that Ichigo did not have to do all the work. After 15 minutes of debate, Ichigo had finally relented and allowed her to bring the drinks, refusing all other offers. Not that he was afraid of her cooking anymore, in fact, since hanging around the Kurosaki residence, Orihime's cooking had mellowed out and was not quite as exotic as it had been when he had first gotten to know her.

If the servant had taken a sledgehammer and hit the young men over the heads, Ichigo and his friends could not have been more stunned than they were now.

"Sir Aizen has succeeded in saving her and bringing her back to the castle. There is to be a ball held tonight in her honor and King Isshin has proclaimed that he will be making an important announcement. Is there anything else you require, sir?"
"No, no thank you for the information. You can go about your business."
As the servant scurried away, Uryu, Ichigo and the others turned to face one another with the same expression of bewilderment on their faces.
