I meant similar, I mean usually you don't have a zanputko with similar names and abilities. Except in the Bleach movie, I think they were running out of ideas.
What bothers me about Ichigo's I don't want to know attitude, I think he never gotten over the death of his mother and that may explain why he always looks so sad. I hope at some point Ichigo have that talk with his father before someone like Aizen reveal the goods. I want to know the truth about Isshin and what Aizen was about to say. When this current arc is over, I hope the next arc will be all about Isshin's secrets.
I was hoping a lil' bit as well that this would happen, but he probably wouldn't abandon his family. Anywho. With the current arc, all of those Shinigami are in the same place as Isshin, and they don't seem surprised to seem him. Maybe because they are a bit preoccupied at the moment. But either way they will probably talk with Ichigo and Urahara, so why not Isshin and Co.
Isshin seems to have the same age of Kyouraku and Ukitake. He knows all about Final Getsuga Tenshou and there is that case about Ichigo's mother. I think All of this join itself. So, the reason is He used the Final Getsuga Tenshou along time ago.
Anyone think about a possible Isshin's link to Fullbringers? I don't think so, but he should have known about the existence of Fullbringers. Isshin has always felt to have more involvement with the events than we are shown.
Somehow I don't think that Isshin is connected to the Fullbringers,but I'd say that Isshin knew that Fullbringers existed,just like he knew of the Vizards(rollback to the scene with Urahara,Isshin and Kon)and maybe he even met some of them.However,I don't think Isshin was or is a Fullbring user,that would be...not cool.
We better get the background on Ishaan and soon. Kubo has been teasing us about it since the beginning of the arc. I swear to god if Ichigo doesn't push him into talking I will be very disappointed.
It's possible that Isshin doesn't know Ginjo, thus they don't have common history together, Royal Realm etc, the things we're interested, but he knows. He knows things about Isshin and he knows things about Urahara (the Spirit King thing?), unless he was just guessing (beginning of the arc).
Well but I wouldn't be surprised if Ginjo was Substitute Shinigame in times of Ukitake's and Urahara's 'youth'. I think Isshin may be slightly older than those two and with that being able to participate in whatever war there was before (him using FGT).
And really, Ichigo better ask. Better late than never.
