I hope is a slice of life chapter, and it explains more of the lives of the characters. I really don't know what age Ichigo will have here. In that image he looks younger than other drawings of Kubo of him with that hair style, but it's not sure. He might be since 21 years old (Renji and Rukia's wedding, where he still had his old hairstyle) until more than 28 (his age in the last chapter).
I think I prefer he be younger than 28, because if the kids appear in the chapter, I want them to be little. And if he hasn't even still got married, I'd like to see his interactions with Orihime because they would already be in a romantic relationship, and will be interesting and new to see his behavior.

I also hope the color page, because it looks like is going be big, will have a lot of characters in it, that is perfect for an anniversary page.

Finally some good news. It's interesting that he decided to do more things with Bleach. It's a bit unexpected. I can't imagine what he's planning to do: will it be some comedy stuff? some fights? some reveals? some more serious content? or more superficial? Will it be only one part or he wants to make more? I know sometimes his short stories can be great (like the Fullbringers' backstories)... And also will it be in some way connected to Burn The Witch? Anyways it's always great to have more Bleach content from Kubo!

Well from online translation tools, it seems the first Tweet says that chapter would be published in issue 36-37 on Aguust 10 courtesy of issue 35 released today. Also, they(staff) received comments from Kubo sensei. The second tweet is in which Tite Kubo has commented that for Bleach 20th ceremony, he drew a little bit of the story he didn't plan to shape and one should read it like a festival or with a festive mood.

Wondering what it means for the chapter itself.

I think Kubo indirectly wants to say that fans shouldn't expect serious plot points since this is an anniversary work to commemorate the series within a festive atmosphere (fireworks, candles, sparkles, lights, flowers and decorations)...These are the vibes I am getting, but this is Bleach world we are talking about where there are occasional party poopers roaming around. However, even with that, I don't expect anything serious to cover and connect the disjointed links from previously left points in the plot. It might be like a bonus kind of a thing addressing a specific moment in the timeline and expanding on it...

Just a reminder: in case somebody stumbles accross some spoilers and decides to post them here, they should conceal them within spoiler tags, because there are still people who would like to read the chapter on its release date without knowing anything about the chapter.

Long story short: put spoilers within spoiler tags.


Reposting the illustration, just in case somebody can't see the embedded tweets:

Ichigo looks so good here. It must be that confident smile. :D

Well...

Feels like an eternity since Bleach ended in a flushed hurry because of declining popularity.

In hindsight, rushing the TYBW Arc was a mistake because Bleach bounced back in popularity after the end once people placed shipping wars behind and cared less about plot inconsistecies.

Personally I am just glad that Harribel and Nelliel survived and are sorta rulling HM together as of the post TYBW novels.

I feel nostalgic in that we could see many of the surviving Bleach characters one more time before the story shifts definately to Burn the Witch.

Damn so this chapter really sounds like it's just for the purpose of celebrating the 20th anniversary and nothing to do with the actual story... disappointing.
