A Nut To Remember by MugenKeiji A Nut To Remember by MugenKeiji
Artist: :iconcerberuslives:

Commissioner: Take a guess ... :iconimhighplz: ... it's not the plz account though.


Well I guess the mixed reaction from the Death Note crossover is going to be peaked for discussion, so we return to the "status quo" of Mask crossovers for another Weekly Shonen Jump manga with a dub on Adult Swim that features Shinigami....yep, BLEACH.

With the luscious lieutenant of Squad 10, Rangiku Matsumoto wearing the Mask, this will be one night Orihime can't live down. One has to wonder though there much of a difference between Rangiku and her green headed alter ego though?

Kind of a tease seeing Orihime in this picture too... Don't come to expect anything of it though, there are no plans *shifts eyes*
Orihime is musing solemnly in her room. She has been recently rescued from Aizen's clutches, but she is still saddened about helping that madman and having to put Ichigo and the others through the hell they had to endure getting her back.

Orihime says, solemnly, "How could I help someone like that? I don't deserve to face Ichigo or be around the others." Just then she hears a knock at the door and she goes over to answer it only to welcome none other than Rangiku Matsumoto.

"How are ya holding out? It's been a while." Rangiku chimed

Orihime asks, nervously, "What are you doing here Rangiku-san?"

Rangiku says, with a smile, "What are you talking about I'm just checking up on a friend. Is there anything wrong with that?"

Orihime looks off to the side, "Is it alright? I mean after helping Aizen the Soul Society probably --- "

Rangiku interrupts, "Orihime-chan, it isn't your..."

Orihime says, solemnly, "It's true, Matsumoto-san! I let myself get kidnapped and I helped that madman succeed in his plans. I betrayed Ichigo-kun and every one of you!"

Rangiku tells Orihime, with a smile, "Don't get worked up about those kind of things. It's over now, besides it's best not to dwell on what could have been."

"Hey you know what'll cheer ya up?" Rangiku motions her head to the door "Let's get out of this gloomy ol' apartment and have some fun, whattya say?!"

Orihime tells Rangiku, nervously, "Matsumoto-san..."

Rangiku yells out, excitedly, "I'm not taking no for an answer! You go fix yourself up and we'll have the night of our lives!"

Orihime says, nervously, "If you say so, Matsumoto-san." Orihime then prepares to head out as Rangiku heads to her closet.

Rangiku says, with a smile, "I'll help us find something for both of us, Orihime-chan." When Rangiku opens the closet, she finds a greenish-brown mask inside. Rangiku says, taking the mask out, "When'd ya get this old thing, Orihime-chan?"

Orihime looks at the mask and she says, "I don't remember having that in there." Orihime shrugs.

Rangiku examines the mask and she says, with a smile, "This thing is even uglier than plenty of Hollow masks. I think that Orihime-chan should try getting rid of some junk like this next time she does some spring cleaning." she looks at the mask closely and she senses a spiritual energy. "[That's strange. I sensed a bit of 'reiatsu' from this mask. I had better ask Orihime about it.]" she thinks to herself. Before she can get the word out, the mask touches her skin and molds onto her face like wax. Rangiku struggles to get 'The Mask' off her, but all she can do is scream from the powerful sensation surging through her body. Shortly thereafter, her body spins around violently becoming like a twister filled with lightning, wind, and thunder.

Orihime bursts into the room in that moment and calls out, concerned, "What's going on? I heard you scream..." But before she can finish, Orihime yelps as she is engulfed in the twister. Soon after, the twister heads out the door with Orihime inside.

Later that evening, we find plenty of males on the streets of the city looking at two females in which we find to be Orihime and Rangiku, but Rangiku is radically different than before!

Rangiku's hair and hairstyle remain the same, but the skin of her head down to the start of her neck is lime green and rubber like in texture, her eyelashes are seductive with violet eyeshadow to make her eyes more lovely, deep, plump, and gorgeous scarlet red lips, a chain around her neck, she is wearing a tight fitting black dress with a 'V' cut down her cleavage exposing plenty of her massive cleavage for very suggestive look and the dress goes down to her knees with slits to expose her sexy and seductive legs, her fingernails are a lovely scarlet red, and she has black high-heeled strap-on open-toed sandals exposing lovely scarlet red toenails.

Orihime, wearing a simple pink dress and shoes, looks nervous and asks, nervously, "Is this what you meant by a 'night out' Matsumoto-san? I don't know..."

The Masked Rangiku looked on, "Don't be so shy Orihime-darling. You got the goods you just gotta know how to sell 'em. Make those boys work for that sugar!" Orihime nods nervously not knowing what's going to happen next, though given all the incidents with Hollows this will probably be the craziest night Karakura Town has ever faced'

-The background is just a blurred out, letterboxed screenshot from an episode of Bleach. Don't care if someone guesses which episode either.

-Didn't shade or at least not a lot. Shaded the dresses and hair but burn/dodged everything else. Doesn't look too bad though.

-A shiny donkey to the person who gets Kaya Matsutani or Megan Hollingshead to provide a soundbyte for this picture :iconhurrplz:

-Tried to save Cerb's signature somehow. Well, good enough :I

-Sat on coloring this for while. Lazy streak again (Panorama Cotton is just so addicting), plus planning other stuff I'd rather not spoil.

behind that mask lies a normal human being behind this superheroic wacko!

I don't think Rangiku is normal OR a human for that matter...

If you do more of these "Masked Duo" pictures, I say you can use Rukia Kuchiki with Tatsuki Arisawa, Yoruichi Shihoin with Soifon.

From Naruto you can use Sakura with Ino, TenTen with Temari, Anko with Kurenai, Tsunade with Shizune, and Hinata with Hanabi.

These are just some ideas that you could do.
I love your artwork on your Mask pictures.
Hope to see more in the near future.

The deviant who drew the picture is CerberusLives. All Mask pictures are contract work (commissions really but same thing), I've tried to note that in the descriptions for quite some time now at least TRY to read them because it makes me feel bad when people credit me as the artist. Really I'm just a cheap bastard that works his way around with commissions by coloring them himself to save a few bucks ^_^;

The picture was just planned to be Rangiku getting Mask really and Orihime was a happy accident satisfied by Jokerisdaking's curiosity. There could be more Bleach girls used in due time but it'll probably be a LONG time before that happens.

To be honest I can't really see this "What If?" theme seen with a pair such as Rangiku and Orihime being reused for other characters in Naruto or Bleach. Ino was already Masked, so it'd kind of be a waste having another Mask picture with her even if it's true her Timeskip rendition could be used...

There IS another Naruto girl who will be Masked (making one another of those pairings a bit redundant as well), but save for a few people in the know (AND THEY BETTER NOT SPOIL IT) I'd like to keep it under wraps until the picture actually surfaces.

Kind of ironic when I said that The Mask isn't all this gallery is about in a journal that's EXACTLY what I seem to be uploading these days =I
