Fighting for Rukia... by alamedyang Fighting for Rukia... by alamedyang
I've had this in mind ever since I first heard Rukia's name. It helps if you remember that Lugia's Japanese name is Rugia (that's why I use his Japanese name in the last panel -- makes the pun work better). Also, the difference between a "k" sound and a "g" sound in Japanese comes down to two little dots....

I don't really think the confrontation between Byakuya and Ichigo happens this way -- it's been a year since I've read or seen any Bleach, and I didn't want to take the time to do any research beyond the char designs. Especially since I was 90% sure the battle didn't have anything close to a moment like this, and then I would still have to depart from canon.

(I wonder if anyone will get the VOT joke..... and, no, wikipedia won't help you.)


EDIT: Actually, now wikipedia will help you... but ~bluchimera got it -- It's voice onset time: in brief, the difference between voiced and voiceless consonants. Linguistics joke... ^_^U


Ichigo Kurosaki & Byakuya Kuchiki (c) Kubo Tite and Shonen Jump
Lugia (c) Nintendo, Gamefreak, Satoshi Tajiri, etc.

XD I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who noticed this.
How'd Byakuya-sama capture Lugia in the first place? And with a regular POKEBALL of all the different kinds? I spent hours chucking Ultra Balls at that thing! Okay, next time I try to catch a Legendary, I'll ask Byakuya-sama to capture it for me. XD

You should have said "top to bottom, THEN left to right"

Reading it this way
1 2
3 4
5 6
7 8

makes no sense
