Chapter 1 | Page 13

I have a lot of random Bleach volumes. Like 7 of them, non-consecutive. Number 7, 8, 11, 13, 15, 19, and 48. I don't know how I got them. I think they were gifts from well-meaning relatives and acquitances. But sincerely I don't know where they came from. I don't like Bleach. But the volumes seem to spontaneously materialize in people's houses.

Anyway, apparently, Tite Kubo's crosshatching also spontaneously materialized in my artstyle. The Kubo mark appeared one day on the bull's face.

Bleach is the silent invader. Slowly, it takes over. If one day you happen to suddenly find a Bleach volume in your house, give it away quickly, or it will multiply.
