Bleach 502: Hear no Evil - A Calm Before the Storm by NanFe Bleach 502: Hear no Evil - A Calm Before the Storm by NanFe
with me, Byakuya's death is painful, but it's like A Calm before A Storm...

painting together with for the same chapter of Bleach 502.

Wow, this is too painful...

So here is my opinions and predictions for Bleach 502: (sorry for my English)

Not talking about I'm a Byakuya's fan, I'm really sure that Byakuya will come back in the future, and yes, I believe that he died for real right now(Orihime or Captain Unohana can not help, sorry). We're not going to see him for awhile...

So many fans (include me) are really angry with Tite Kubo right now (GODDAMNIT, I was planing to go to Japan to kill him for the first moment I read Bleach 502 hahaha), but, if we think further, this is one of the WISEST move of Tite Kubo.

Let's see this way...
This is the Last Arc of Bleach, a Final Coutdown, WE, Bleach's Fans, what we expect? Of course something big, some epicness, a real BIG CHANGE
If Tite Kubo continutes to make his characters always win in every battle, it will make us see the Opponents are weak as those Fullbrigers, well, it's problaly boring as hell...

I'm pretty sure that Kuchiki Byakuya is Kubo's beloved character (look how much afford he put to design Byakuya)
More than anyone else, I think Tite Kubo has already predicted that how much his fans gonna hate him if he make Byakuya dies, but, if we look on other side, Kuchiki Byakuya, in 11 years of Bleach, always the symbol of Immortal, A person who can not easily die, and now, Byakuya's death is a Sign, a Warn that Tite Kubo gives us to know and understand deeply how strong the opponents this time (damn, he's serious about this).

The reason why I believe Byakuya will come back, well, it's easy because we sooo understand Tite Kubo's usual style, don't you think in just too fast? as the title of this Arc, "A Final Holy War", in just 22 chapters, Tite Kubo kills one of his main characters like Byakuya, clearly that he's planning on something big, really BIG.

I have a strangle feeling that Tite Kubo is mixing the ideas from Bleach Anime's filters, didnt realize that untill I saw Hitsuyaga called his sword name when The Quincy stole our Captains's Bakai, just like the Zanpakutou Arc, Byakuya is the one who gone missing while fought against Senbozakura and turn his back to Shinigami to protect his pride, if it continute like this as the manga, I hope Tite Kubo bring Byakuya back to life and make him different from his image we used to know, like, come to the "Dark Side"(why this sounds like a Deja Vu), betray Soul Society ahaha, just like Regai Arc....

wow, come to think what Bleach is gonna be, it's awesome (and such a long way to go).
let me see, kill the captains, some of main characters, Ichigo comes to SS, Rukia's trauma because of Byakuya's death, how Rukia, Renji,Ichigo and other Shinigami getting stronger, the Espadas(Halibel,Nel, Grimmjow...etc), Gin's back, unseal Aizen (you didnt forget him, did you?) meeting Tensa Zangetsu and the old man Zangetsu, fighting to get back Zanpakutous's names.......

I hopefully when Tite Kubo brings Byakuya back, it shoul be a badass scene, a big difference, just as the sketch on my Tumblr Blog, maybe the "Boss" of Quincy revives him, make him betray Shinigami, hurting Rukia or something :D? or Aizen after unsealed, has the ability to revive or something, aahhh come on, let it happen, sound cool huh hahaha

okay, I should stop here, long post is long

So sad but beautiful.

its so sad and so distraught, and yet i cannot turn away. It is almost hypnotic. the beauty and serenity you have created in this picture will not allow me to do so, and the blood upon his lips and eyes reminds me of the past, so much so that i cannot let this go, despite my desire to. it has captured me.

you are an amazing artist. the emotion you are able to invoke is as breath taking as it is heart retching. I love this. it is outstanding, and nothing i can say will be able to express what it feels like. thank you.

well, I do hope he comes back... but he should remain on Rukia's and Soul Society's side...

Sad but beautiful and meaningful picture. I also feel the same. I think he is dead, but will return with Orihime's god-like ability and possibly Unohana's help. Thanks for your words. :)
