Ikumi being able to see the badge was a bit surprising, so she at least has a bit more spiritual power then the average human. But lets be serious here she isn't a main character so she's going to become Tatsuki / Karin 2.0 a human with decent spiritual power but in the end an utterly worthless character that gets almost no development, barely appears, and doesn't / can't do anything.
Can't wait to see some questions get answered in the upcoming chapters. And see Ichigo develop his new powers, but they better not give him a bow that would be quite lame.

Bet she ends up being Ichigo's half sister, Masaki being the mum lul.
But anyway, decent chapter, yes it was obvious but still...at least as someone said, we're getting answers now.
Isn't it contradictory that the job lady couldn't see Ichigos Dad but then she saw the deputy badge?
I think the badge is physical. It is not made of spiritual energy I think,
I think everyone is missing a fairly major point .
Look at Ichigo's Mum introducing herself... KUROSAKI Misaki, if the Kurosaki name comes from HER, wtf is Isshin's real family name?
I mean yes the rest of the chapter was fairly obvious to us, but Ichigo is a retard and needs everything spelled out for him, plus this is just the start of what will probably be a lloonngg conversation, with mainly surprises and twists.
Also, if Ichigo gets a Quincy Bow rather than a Zanpaktou, I'm gunna quit reading bleach
So considering Kurosaki is Misaki's family name, I think it could be plausible that Isshin is a disgraced member of the Shiba clan. Entirely possible considering Ichigo's similarities to Kaien Shiba.
That was my thought Hunt, all we know of the Shiba is that they were disgraced for something and stopped being a high clan...
What if the reason they fell into disgrace was a high member/the head of the clan left to marry a Quincy, during a time of war?
I was 99% sure the reason Isshin was messed up on the last page was because of a Hollow. It'd be weird for a Quincy to hurt Isshin as part of the war, only for another Quincy to help him recover. Besides, Isshin says "wow you took that thing down easily" or something.
my first thoughts on this chapter was : "kids im going to tell you the story of how i met your mother..."
someone else might have gotten it wrong.
I really don't see him getting a bow. Kubo isn't that crazy lol He will learn A LOT about his mother and her history with Isshin and so on (as will we) then he'll return for Zangetsu. Or, as I said, Kubo may add a massive twist and have Ichigo sympathize with the Quincy and join them against SS! (I don't really think that will happen but it's a fun "What If...")Originally Posted by UnifiedDivide

Grand Fisher got raped by Isshin AFTER Grand Fisher got hollowfication. (Or the equivalent, whatever.) If it was Grand Fisher that'd be stupid.
I'm not saying it's a simple hollow but...there are only 4 real super-powered races in this whole manga: Shinigami, Quincies, Hollows, and Fullbringers (or some combination of the above). I don't think Isshin would get attacked by a fellow Shinigami...I already explained why it wouldn't be a Quincy. Fullbringers didn't really exist back then. Him being attacked by a hollow is the only option. It could just be a vasto lorde class and it'd still fit the bill that a captain could lose to it.
I guess we longer have to wonder about that herpderp Aizen statement which he never finished:
You are a shinigami and a....
