Thanks Aggeroff, That would work (sorry I missed the comment).

And I recall an earlier Chapter where Aizen was talking about gathering/searching for the Vasto Lorde. Naturally then I'd be interested in Isshin himself, just how powerful is he (potentially) as a Shinigami, and Masaki as a Quincy too.
Pretty cool if Ichigo gets his powers from the Highest Echelons of Hollow, Shinigami, and Quincies. Would be interesting if Masaki is related to Juha Bach, and if the Shiba Clan are distantly related to the Soul King.
No wonder then that Aizen and the Soul King himself were/are so interested in Ichigo all along.
Not sure about that... ginjou only stated that "they're parents were attacked before they were born"... this could mean many things..... parents could mean mother or even possibly father too... before they were born could mean before they were even conceive or during pregnancy.... the pregnant photo on the anime would mislead you as i recall there was none in the manga... everything is

Then ginjou explained about the mother thing....reiatsu remaining their but it was never said anything about pregnancy...it only remained and later on passed down to the infant... imo its kinda like HIV... if the mother is infected even before getting pregnant there is a chance that the child she will have if she gets pregnant in the future will have HIV too...
Chapter 476 both MP/MS Same thing ginjou told it twice...
note: 1) Parent/Parents/Mother 2)Before we were born, it was never stated as exactly a pregnant mother or could possibly be father too... or during pregnancy.. it was all speculation by readers and discussions in forums especially the "DURING PREGNANCY" PART
PS: if there is a raw or translation about the necessity of pregnancy here and not some speculation or assumption plss post it here coz its hard to remember all the bleach lines hehe... though i highly doubt there is... i'm almost sure that no pregnancy is mentioned

Anyway, it seems that this Hollow was hollowified, according to Kaname:
So it really is a Hollow level 2. For now, it doesn't show much traces of intelligence, like other Adjuchas and above that level (VL) hollows.
Anyway, what is that brain-like thing in the page above ? Is that Aizen's super computer ? Or is it the form of his own H-cube at the time ?
That hallow has certainly something to do with Ichigo, the second title of this chapter (noticeable in Misaki's shadow) is named "Dark of the Moon" after all.
Now I'm wondering if the Black Getsuga that Hichigo used, isn't actually a move that he copied from Ishin and thus Ichigo himself hasn't mastered his own version of Bankai Getsuga.
Still, Masaki's training is supposedly far from complete, so how could she top something that a Captain level (probably with restriction seal, but still a captain) Shinigami couldn't. Maybe she used some other move that only the Kurosaki can perform ?
Next chapter will probably have a color page and if it turns out that this hollow has an orange hair... then this means that this hollow is Ichigo, but thanks to defeating it, the instability of the current form of hollowification and by pouring on to it, both Shinigami and Quincy powers (the reason they lost them ?), it was reverted back to how it originally was - a human (spirit ? --> Gigai present from Urahara ?), with additional powers... quite a stretch if I say so myself :P.
I'm really getting tired of the sporadic hiatus Kubo is taking...it hasn't been that long since his last one...damn it Kubo get to it!
Great chapter though, tying some loose ends and creating new ones. lol
Man, the hollow that looks like Ichigo in full hollow form stands more of a chance of being Ichigo's bio father based on looks. Where is Kubo going with this!
we may be over rating the powers of masaki, although the vasto lord over powered isshin I'm sure he must of held he's own for some time and possibly weakened the vasto lord before the help of masaki came..
and by going on the explanation of my2k2bb how he compares the situation of ichigo born with the infection as hiv makes sense because if you think about it in depth there is direct contact with isshin and the vasto and if he then sleeps with masaki the infection passes.. so there's how you have it
There is a truly legitimate possibility that the hollow standing before you in indeed Ichigo. Zero nailed it I think. Paulbee alluded to it, by stating "but, she's not preggers yet." Ichigo could have been an extremely powerful vasto-lorde. Cleansed by the power of Quincy and Shinigami, he reverts back to a human form. Isshin and Masaki adopt this young boy who has no memory of his time as a VL. I really hope it's not, 'hollowfication as hiv-transferred at birth to ichigo.' Because do you know how entirely LAME that sounds?
How lame does it sound?

Besides, the alternative you're proposing is IMO implausible, unless Aizen was wrong (which admittedly is not impossible). Aizen said he was "Shinigami and...". With that theory, you'd have to explain why his Shinigami side was also "cleansed" until Rukia brought it back out. And why no one from the Shinigami recognized him. Plus, it negates the explanation of why he looks like Shiba Kaien.
Quick question, and I don't know if any one addressed it in 529. Why is Tosen on a computer if he is blind. He could be receiving the information as Braille.
Damn, so Ichigo's mother is a full blood Quincy. Nice! So, his sisters and him are half shinigami and qunicy. Explains why they attract the attention of so many hallows and bad guys.
