WTF Wednesday: Kubo Tite

Spill Ink, make money.


This week’s WTF Wednesday is about our favorite mangaka, Kubo Tite, author of Bleach; and yes, he is your favorite mangaka, because that’s the way he wrote it (live with it). Kubo Tite is the creator of both Zombie Powder and Bleach, but better known as the manga world’s professional troll. He does things that end up pissing off many people, and he does it all without drawing a background. Finished with a training arc? Time for a rescue arc. Done with a rescue arc? Time for a training arc.

Fans all over the world have come to realize that maybe Kubo is doing this on purpose, because he knows how angry we all get at all his decisions. Thusly, Kubo the troll was born of this world, though even he was born without a background. Today, we will celebrate Kubo for who he is, not as a fashion designer, not as a bankai dealer, but as a professional troll.

@Destinyheroknight: bleach is good but Kubo is making it worse
Matteon Dec. 16, 2009 at 9:28 p.m.
@Nerx:  I'm usually watching OP episodes with my breakfast every morning.  I'm not a morning person, but OP picks me up with it's gags and over-the-top scenes/characters.

@Nerx:

Don't get me wrong, even though Kubo is crazy, I still enjoy what he does. It's almost refreshing...
Nerxon Dec. 16, 2009 at 10:45 p.m.
Sunnuva b!tch , after reading chap 386 I am more pissed at Kubo
JackSukeruon Dec. 17, 2009 at 12:21 a.m.
I've stopped watching both Naruto and Bleach, Naruto at crystal lady filler arc, and Bleach at soccer match filler arc. Decided to just wait for the swedish manga to catch up.
