Hello! It's been a while since I posted here. For anyone who doesn't know or remember, I'm the guy who likes to draw events that we didn't see in the canon manga.

I drew the first part of the battle between the Royal Guard and the Schutzstaffel for instance: https://imgur.com/a/8a8ZY

Now I was wondering if anyone would be interested in supporting a whole new arc of Bleach, taking place quite some time after the end of the series. I've got the story idea and I've drawn the first two chapters, just so you can see what I can do.

Chapter 1 - https://imgur.com/a/GUlJk
Chapter 2 - https://imgur.com/a/XW4sh

The story will focus on Kazui and his struggle to become a Shinigami. The pressure of being Ichigo Kurosaki's son forces him to wonder whether he was made to be a hero like his father. Meanwhile, a mysterious new enemy emerges to threaten this long period of peace across the worlds.

I have a lot of cool ideas I'd like to put on paper, but realistically I'm going to need help. It's a huge time and resource sink, so I just wanted to get a read on whether a Patreon for a project like this was something the community would be interested in. A Patreon would help me pay for things like paper, pens and ink while all of my other income goes on unimportant things like rent (bah).

I'm not sure what the rewards would necessarily be yet, and just wanted to get an initial reaction. Let me know what you think and if you have any ideas to get this off the ground, if that's something the community wants at all.

I'd like to help keep the spirit of a series that gave me so much alive in some way. Thanks for reading this rather lengthy post.

I am surprised that no one has responded. I have read and seen your work and I am greatly impressed by what I have read and seen. I will admit that I am not a fan of how Bleach ended, but I read the last chapter you wrote and I liked it. I would be supportive of it, that is giving ideas and such. I would like to see a larger audience than myself, though.

Thank you! :) Luckily it's had a bit more interest on reddit at the moment, but hopefully things will pick up.

My previous post (that I deleted to avoid a double post): You know, back when you first posted these chapters on BA, I had hopes that you'll continue posting/publishing new chapters. I couldn't support you financially (through Patreon that you've mentioned), but you have my full fan support for your endeavours to create more Bleach content. :thumbs

What sort of help outside those would you need?

(Lately, the busy server issue would appear just as I'm about to post something here. I saw your post yesterday, but couldn't reply.)

I've just read your new chapter (3) and it's excellent. It feels like reading new Bleach content, not only through your drawings, but also through your writing style. More thoughts:
~ There is a lot of Renji in Ichika; the panel that convinced me of that is the one where she jumps in the air.
~ Kazui's insecurities are believable and well written.
~ That Bach shadow - it sent shivers down my spine! :zomg
~ Kon's there too! :XD
The spirit. I want it to be Masaki, but...
Robert and Nanana attack.

Maybe more people from BA would see your work if you post an announcement on BA's Discord as well?

This is good stuff my dude! You should definitely announce on the Discord and link your chapter 3.

I liked it. Why is there no link to chapter 3? Are there more chapters? It's really interesting.

Hello! It's been quite some time (too long, sorry) since I last posted a chapter, but we're back in business! To cut a long story short, I'm writing and illustrating a new arc of Bleach to carry on beyond TYBW. It's set 20 years after chapter 686 and features an adult Kazui Kurosaki, Ichika Abarai and all your old favourites as they try to combat a new threat - one with a connection to the most powerful and darkest of Soul Society's secrets! I hope to cover some of the ground that we felt was missing from TYBW, as well as reveal all the unseen Bankai!

NEW CHAPTER - BLEACH 690 'BLIND': https://imgur.com/a/NZNgYM6

Previous chapters:

Bleach 687 'The Revenge of the Nameless Children Arc' - https://imgur.com/a/GUlJk

Bleach 688 'Can't Hear the Name' - https://imgur.com/a/XW4sh

Bleach 689 'Shadows Descending' - https://imgur.com/a/24Prfsc

The Story so Far...

After being resurrected by Yhwach's death, several of the Sternritters are attacked in the Schatten Bereich by a strange and unknown individual, who claims to want them dead. While Bazz-B and Haschwalth put aside their differences to try and combat this new foe, Askin escapes to call for aid.

Meanwhile, Kazui Kurosaki can't talk to his zanpakuto. A powerful black reiatsu continually ejects him from his inner world. Despondent, he confides in his best friend Ichika, who resolves to help him. At the same time, two other Sternritters, NaNaNa Najahkoop and Robert Accutrone, arrive in Karakura Town. They're seeking Ichigo Kurosaki and Uryu Ishida and are out for revenge...

Thanks to everyone for the amazing reaction to the previous chapters. You're all incredible! I love being able to give back to my favourite series and also the community that has supported me so much with every endeavour I've undertaken. Let me know what you think of the story so far, and maybe visit my art page and consider a commission! Thank you!

I was just heading over here to post that I've FINALLY released chapter 4, only to see I've been beaten to it! :O Thank you SO much for the support and the exposure, honestly, I can't appreciate it enough. That sort of help means the world to me.

I'd love to get this out on Discord but if I'm honest, I don't really know how to use it. Am I right in thinking I need an invite?

Thank you! I'm hoping to get chapter 5 out much faster than I did the previous ones, but we'll see how that goes XD
