    Question Can Someone Clear This Up For Me?

    I'll start by saying that this is my first post on the forums, so if I'm doing it wrong, I apologize.

    My question is about Gin. So far, he's my favorite character in Bleach, but there are some things that I'm confused about. For instance, I've been to different sites that discuss his dialect and speech patterns, but they aren't consistent. I've heard he speaks with a Kyoto dialect, and that he's formal and polite. However, I've also heard that he speaks with an Osaka dialect instead, and that he's informal and rude.

    Based on Viz's translations, he seems indifferent and polite, but there's no way for me to tell if he really is like that by the way he talks, other than his facial expressions. So if anyone could help me with that, I'd be ever so grateful.

    Bonus Question: Whatever happened to ol' Gin anyway? He seemed to have disappeared!

    While I can't answer your first question, because I don't see much difference, the bonus question is easy : He is playing hide-and-seek with Aizen in the hollow world

    definitely he speaks Kyoto dialect, which is indirect and polite.

    That are very accurate because:
    Kyoto-ben (京都弁) is characterized by its reliance on politeness and indirectness.

    Only way is to get a raw, and discover by yourself what dialect he speaks.

    But even so... its hard to translate a dialect.
