  • Anyone else think that Stark's name along with his Zanpakutō and Resurrección being based off wolves is a refrence to A Song Of Ice And Fire, the books that Game Of Thrones was based on. The character didn't appear until 2007 while the books have been out since 1996. Just putting it out there.

    • Maybe, but keep in mind that the ASOIAF series, and by extension the Starks, only really became well-known with the advent of Game of Thrones, which started in 2011. Not that Kubo couldn't possibly have known about it when he introduced Starrk, but he gave almost all the Arrancar an animal motif in their powers, and in MASKED Kubo said Starrk's name came from Phillipe Starck. So I'd say it's very unlikely.

    • Actually the first book, A Game Of Thrones, won 3 awards and nominations for two others within a year of being released. It was quite popular in those who like fantasy and history, which i have no doubt that Kubo is a fan of considering all the references to both. And whos to say that he didn't name him first and give him a wolf motiff after from the series. He could have picked any other animal. Plus the blue color is much like ice and the north.

    • Well, given that his Resurrección makes him look like (in the words of the article) a wild-west gunslinger, the locale of which is also associated heavily with wolves, do you have any proof it wasn't based on that, and that A Game Of Thrones was even a hit in Japan (given how other Western-original franchises like God of War have flopped so hard there)? Also, the blue coloring of his Ceros stems from the anime, no telling if Kubo had any involvement in that.

    • "I got all of them from designers' names. From architects to interior designers."

      "Stark came from Phillippe Starck. There's a model for Ulquiorra too. There's a woman by the name of Patricia Urquiola."

      Both of those quoted sections are copied directly from the interviews in MASKED, on page 256. As you can see, no mention of Game of Thrones. The interviews give a lot of other nice insights into the creative process and reasoning behind certain things. I highly suggest you give the databook a read if you haven't.

      The books might have been out in 1996, but when did they even get translated into Japanese. I don't think Tite's English is very good. At least it wasnt last time I heard he went to the States. Like what was said before me the name isnt from GOT, but what about the theme? Well have we ever seen him say anything about likeing GOT or taking inspiration form it. The dude comments on all sorts of nonsense, surely he would have mentioned GOT?
