I've always thought Kubo had fallen into the dragonball/shounen trap. With no idea how to feasibly make fights exciting after powering up Ichigo to the 'strongest' every arc, he's had to combine everything into one.
First - Shinigami level
Next - Shinigami + hollow
Then Shinigami + hollow + human/hollow power
Finally Shinigami + hollow + human/hollow + quincy.
Hopefully I'm wrong, but as soon as fullbring's came along, I had jokingly guessed that Ichigo would somehow assimilate quincy power too.

I think it's safe to say that Yama-jii definitely could've used blut vein.
I like the idea of Ichigo being able to absorb power Or copy it

So, seeing as all types of Ichigo's powers were personalized within his inner dimension, does it mean that there are now 4 personalities and each one of them controls a different part of Ichigo's power (Shinigami, Hollow, Fullbring, Quincy) ? What's more, their combination might look extremely bizarre .
Let's seee hmmmm, Ichigo can now transform into a full hollow with a bankai (H2-Ichigo), Quincy Final Form, Quincy Complete Form, FGT-Mugetsu Hybrid mode and all being powered by Fullbring and their core being Shinigami powers... ah right, Ichigo still hasn't learned any kidou or hand-to-hand shinigami styled combat, firing cero at will, firing heavenly arrows and the like... he still has room for growth I guess it really might take another 9 years to end this series .
If Ichigo can absorb powers like Ginjo I wonder if he can also share them, that way he could prop up the Shinigami with Blut Vene and Blut Arterie for an epic counter attack.
Something to keep in mind, many of the powers we've seen between the "races" in Bleach (Hollows, Shinigami, Quincy) do similar things, just the type of power is what is different. (Sonido = Shunpo = Hirenkyaku, for example)
Ichigo is unique. He's shown both Hollow and Shinigami powers. Is it really any surprise that he'd be able to use Quincy abilities too? After all, we've seen an Arrancar that used Quincy powers, at least Ichigo is closer to being a Quincy than one of them.
Oh right, I liked how one of the artworks was stylized after Guilty Crown :
Ichigo vs Juha battle was just the way I love it. And it's only the beginning (hopefully). And Hacshwald was so sad in this chapter. I wonder why. He must have an interesting backstory. I bet he'll die before it's revealed, though.
