See if you can find what VIZ is trying to hide in this summer's releases of BLEACH.

While I was updating many of the manga covers in the BLEACH series to the U.S. editions. I noticed a little touch in all the VIZ Media releases. There are two particular volumes where these two manga have an oh-so convenient placement of the title card that wasn't there in the original Japanese versions. Take a look at the images before and see if you can find the change.

BLEACH Vol. 46 JPN to US Comparison
BLEACH Vol. 46 JPN to US Comparison

As you can see, VIZ moved the BLEACH title to slightly cover the rather prominent breast for both Tier Halibel and Rangiku Matsumoto on BLEACH Vol. 42 and Vol. 46. It's just sort of a silly edit. As if we aren't going to suddenly notice they are there. I guess there is more of a case of Matsumoto's version. If they put it at the top, it would have covered her face. It's not really a big deal as long as the art inside isn't changed. I just thought it was kind of funny.

While we're on the topic, I'd love to ask why they don't keep the volume names on the covers. They do the same thing to NARUTO and ONE PIECE.

Overview

Welcome to the Gintama report! It's been a long time that MohsinMan99 and I have written the weekly report for Gintama, but our school had taken a higher priority. Let's catch up on Gintama. Plus, I put Gintama as a lower priority than my other wiki projects. In this report, we talk about episode 237 and 238 and also, the wiki editors who have been working on Gintama.

Please be aware that I'm a new Gintama fan. I might butcher their names or have the wrong impressions, but I have MohsinMan99, an expert on Gintama, as my teammate.

Plot

Please Take Me Skiing

Toshiro and his pals have a mission to babysit the Shogun at the ski resort. Things go wrong when Gintoki and his pals show up. After Kagura rampages, Gintoki accidentally takes the Shogun and rides him like a human ski board. Will Gintoki, Toshiro, and the gang fix their mistake?

A Vacation in Disorientation

After a day of shenanigans, Toshiro and the gang seek shelter only to find ridiculous things from Tae and Kotarou. They finally find the Shogun, but they still have the issue on how to get warm. Will Toshiro, Gintoki, and their gang survive their vacation with the Shogun's reputation intact?

Find out by watching these two crazy episodes!

Verdict

Beware of Spoilers!

Good

  • As always, Gintama's humorous episodes have the crudest stuff. Be prepared for convenient censoring and outrageous moments. I share some in the WTF moments section.
  • Gintama's characters are interesting. I find Kagura and Sogo to be like opposites. The scene with the snowball is really good.
  • There are plenty of references to anime and big myths. See them below. (Thanks MohsinMan99)

Bad

  • I have no problems with this episodes. The humor is pretty tame.

WTF Moments

The Penile Brake
The Penile Brake
  • Gintama is known for its lewd moments. Kondo is no exception. He and Shogun get it on.
  • The comparison of a igloo to a mother's womb is most disturbing. I don't know why Kagura and Gintoki made that comparison.
  • The penile brake is strange, but the idea of a human ski board is even bizarre. To add on, Tae thinks glasses are handlebars.

Thanks

Thank you guys for reading. As a community, we have to get involved and talk about our favorite shows to make this place great. My team and I are busy, and we always appreciate extra help. Wiki editor, Sophronimos, did a good job on providing images and working on Gintama episodes 239 and 240. He helped us in Sket Dance with the Ogress Arc episodes. Give my team and Sophronimos a round of applause for the hard work they did.
