This might sound silly but after reading that chapter, I got the feeling that Urahara and Isshin are part of zero squad....................................Yeah yeah i know its stupid. I take it bk
What strikes me is that It is extremely ODD that Urahara and Isshin are talking about the Vizards as though they knew nothing about the Vizards.
Imagine that, Calling Vizards " A CRIMINAL GROUP.......THAT USES FORBIDDEN SPELLS TO ACQUIRE THE POWER OF HOLLOWS"
That is patently ridiculous, and it is a complete farce to pretend that Urahara and Isshin did not/should not have known the truth about Vizards.
This is perhaps the Worst case of Trolling by Kubo, OR evidence that he makes it up as he goes.
It was just a moment of remembering Aizen saying something about Urahara seeing the soul king just before he got sealed that encouraged the thought of Urahara working with squad zero. Actually looking at all that has happened btw Urahara and Soul Society, I really doubt it now. Yes, you have a point. Urahara had known about hollowfication at the point when Aizen turned Shinji and co. into mock arrancars so Urahara saying that it was from forbidden spells at that time in the world of the living, reveals a hole in the whole story. Well spotted
Beside, Urahara knows EVERYTHING, he rarely gives out the whole truth and most of the time he hides informations. Like the case with Houghyoku in Rukia, Hoygyokou's true power and the like. To simply put, Ishin didn't had to know more than that and simply Urahara didn't give him more informations.
Ishin might have been simply part of a group that was send after the vizards and was simply given limited information, especially if they somehow knew that they have split apart (the Vizards group would have been considered a greater threat, since they were considered hollows at some point with captain level strength). Not to mention that Rukia was willingly cooperating with Urahara in the HR, which she would not if she knew for what he was banished.
It's even possible that the information he possessed came from Urahara which was modified in a way that would not look like Kisuke was the one that turned Ishin's son into a hollow... at least willingly :P ?
Now that Byakuya is dead and Rukia is too weak to become a head of a family, with Byakuya's father and grandfather dead/missing, does it mean that she would need to marry a powerful Shinigami who in turn would become the leader of Kuchiki ? I guess there will be tons of Ichigo x Rukia fanfics and doujinshin soon flooding the net ;P.
You make it far too complicated :). The plain truth before our eyes are:
1) Kubo Re-invented SS history with the Pandulum mini arc. Byakuya and others trully didn't think about the Vizards because the story had not yet been Formulated in Kubo's Mind when the chapter in question was drawn.
2) Isshin always Knew all about Urahara's machinations. His close association with Yoruichi and Urahara makes it improbable that he wouldn't.
3) It is Illogical for Captains and Vice Captains to dissappear from SS and Urahara Kissuke be an accused suspect, yet there was no outstanding warrant for his arrest.
The simplest explanation is...Tr..
Ichigo's mother is a qunicy???? not a human??? or that is a hint that kubo set early??? :confused:
