EDIT: Wouldn't it be funny if when the grand fisher appeared Ichigo went holow mode and had gone berserk and killed his mother.(would explain why she died so easily)

*Snort* That whole setup with Masaki + Ryuken would work too :laugh I was working towards Isshin being hollowfied during his encounter, but meeting a hollow that looks like "VL" hollow Ichigo would work too. That would explain why Ichigo is special, and his sisters are not.
It seems a bit funny Kubo seems to have forgotten Ryuken had darker hair in one of Uryuu's flashbacks? :P

On a fun note, I'm really surprised Souken had such a peaceful character himself when he was married to such a violent woman. Normally, he shouldn't even see his mid ages before passing away with that unending bickering.
This marriage arrangement could well be one of the reasons Ryuken hated the Quincy's way himself and abandoned it by his own admission. That "You can't get money to live" excuse looks too lame to be true.
Great chapter! Clearly the hollow (Vasto Lorde I think) looks a lot like Ichigo's hollow! We can assume that this hollow is the one who gave Ichigo his hollow power. Certainly something related to Aizen...
So Masaki was the fiancée of Ishida's dad...
Masaki is a pure Quincy Blood...That could explain why she is so powerful! She's the last one...Pretty sure she's from Bach's family!
This arc is very exciting!
So, we've learnt that Masaki ISN'T Ryuken's sister, but was more accepted into the Ishida family to be the wife of Ryuken. It seems as though Masaki is a pureblood Quincy, and that it was important for her to raise a family with a Quincy in order to preserve the bloodline. It also looks like they've noticed that she's romantically involved with Ishinn.
As for this Hollow that Ishinn's facing; after seeing it, I'm 100% convinced it's got something to do with Ichigo's powers...not only does the mask resemble Ichigo's newer Hollow form (apart from the missing markings), but it's blade-like arms sorta resemble Ichigo's newer Zanpakutou form in Bankai.
Seems to me like he wants some inspiration on how to model the "Schattenreich". I wonder if he'll go there http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walhalla_temple, the hall of German Ancestors. Please don't let him focus on nazi architecture...
Apart from that: Wow, that hollow really looks like Ichigo's hollow form... THAT is an interesting twist.
So Masaki, Isshin and that hollow had a three way? No, just kidding. If Masaki killed that thing it may somehow have been absorbed by her or... some hougyokou action.. I really can't explain that and i hope Kubo has a good explanation.
I can see Isshin having a really hard time fighting that hollow. However, Masaki seems to be quite weak, maybe she just finished the hollow off. So Ryuken should have been married to her.. Isshin stole his wife but somehow they became friends. Maybe Isshin stayed in KT because he fell in love with her and had to protect her from the Quincy.. no, he couldn't have protected her without Shinigami powers.
Seems like i can't find a good theory.

Okay, after a few minutes to process, theory time?
Okay, the whole Masaki thing is neat, but hardly much to discuss, pretty straightforward and all.
The Hollow, though, THAT's interesting. It looks an AWFUL lot like Ichigo, huh? I assume this... thing is Aizen's doing. I mean, we can't say for sure yet, God forbid we think we've got it straight and Kubo pulls another fast one on us. For the time being, let us assume that it's Aizen's fault, like everything else in the whole manga.
Okay, I think we can also rule out an Arrancar. The mask looked pretty intact. Yeah, we didn't see all of it, so it could be broken, but I feel that it's a reasonable assumption. Vasto Lordes, then? It's human sized, still a pure Hollow, from what we can tell, and seems incredibly powerful. So, has Kubo finally revealed the first manga Vasto Lorde? I certainly hope so. It's about time, since they've been hyped for, what, how many years?
The more interesting thing, is that it seems eerily similar to Ichigo, namely the mask shape and the horns, from Ichigo's latest Hollow form. Actually, it looks a bit like that form, mixed with his regular Bankai, if it is indeed black in colour, and I'm not mistaking the manga's colouring... again...
I think it's entirely to early to make any guesses about how this thing is related to Ichigo, since we've, you know, seen a grand total of two panels of the thing, and we'll have to wait 2 weeks to see anything else... god damn your illness, Kubo...
However, I'm certain that we can assume it is related to Ichigo in some way. The similarities are frankly just too uncanny for there not to be some connection. Kubo may be a troll, but he's not an idiot; he's done this for a reason.
Since I am a Hollow Ichigo fan... and we haven't properly seen him in years... I'll just count this as a Hichigo moment... for myself.
Any thoughts? Did I get anything wrong?

This hollow is surely the reason as to why Ichigo have fullbring and the reasone as to why Ichigos hollow form loked as it looked. The hollow injured Masaki as we seen in chapter 528.
Also its not VL or arrancar its
We’ve succeeded in equipping a hollow with the ability to cause targeted hollowification…
Its hollow created by Aizen, Tosen and Gin. Most likely if it would land a direct hit on Isshin he would turn nto a holow.... or maybe he was almost turned but he used FGT to get rid of his power and its stoped the transformation. ANyway if its at the level of VL or higher than Isshin couldnt win with just 20% of his power
Its just the animeQuote:
The Kurosakis and the Ishidas are pure blod. The same Isshin is pure blood since he is the son of 2 sginigamies so Ichigo is from pure blood Shinigami and Pure blod Quincy. He is really pure. Maybe besides the hollow poart. He was the first to be born so he's the only one to gain hollow powers since all the reiatsu that Masaki hed in her from the hollow who attacked her was given to IchigoQuote:

So Uryuu's mother is the maid, who I assume is a Quincy as well. Now this Hollow, da fuq. It looks so much like Hollow Ichigo, this is interesting. This should confirm that there were arrancar before Aizen made them. Also, if its not an arrancar it is probably a Vasto Lorde. It looks an awful lot like Ichigo's hollowfied form though. Oh baby, actually getting excited for Bleach again.
