I swear, my style changed way too much with these doodles. I'm really excited, though. More backstories.
Btw, remember how many of us had a freak out a few years ago about Kyoraku knowing Nanao when she was a little girl and hoping that he only started developing feelings for her when she was older. If around maybe 150 is old enough for 1000+ years yeoufeelme. Now it's "please don't be hitting on your possible daughter/niece/cousin." Hopefully we'll learn a lot about the promise he made with her mother and their zanpakutous.
I'm not really a shipper, but they'd have a considerably "healthy" relationship compared to many still living characters/couples. I really hope that it's just a case of unrequited love and "you really look like you mother--who i had a thing for--and it's really f-ing me up--but you have a different personality and i think i have type." I'm down for the cheesy "soul mates" thing with their zanpakutous so long as it's not incest.
Nanao Ise, Shunsui Kyoraku, "O-hana," and Kyokotsu belong to Tite Kubo.
