The picture below basically says it all when it comes to the theme, what is the purpose of this little boy? What possible role could he play?
Remember while this arc is the last arc, it was also said to be really, really, really long, so where will this boy, and the girl with him fit in into the story?
They were introduced for a purpose, but what purpose could it possibly be?
I'd hope we can get as many crazy and far fetched theories and ideas as far possible, and hoping that we can stitch something together, that looks like a solid or a couple of different solid theories, or if you got a complete theory on your own, this is also very welcoming.
What's your take on it?
The young man is actually a Shiba.
That's my theory. I'm putting money on it.
The young man is Grand Fisher's younger hollow brother, Super-Fishpole Z, and he has infiltrated Soul Society with a really long fishing line.
His goal is to absorb Kenpachi, kill Yumichika, and liberate everyone inside Soul Society's prisons.
I am also putting money on this theory. Go ahead, just try to find something wrong with it.
I'm gonna guess that it's kid Zangetsu. It kinda looks like a younger Tensa Zangetsu. Unless that's one of the 2 new Shinigami's introduced in the beginning of the story arc. In that case, it's probably a Shiba.

I have a feeling that when Ichigo gets Zangetsu back he will be "reborn" in this kid form. Also, I think that's why the background in the pic is the same color as Ichigo's shikai Getsuga Tenshou. Also, the hoodie Ichigo is wearing is a cool design.

Masaki was being attacked by shirosake in the past and since she was a quincy she happened to absorbed its(shirosaki’s) getsuga meaning a massive amount of hollow reitsu/powers. She passed on these(this) powers/reitsu to ichigo, her 1st born child. Ichigo turned into his hollow form unknowingly when he saw GF lure and accidently killed Masaki. We know that when a hollow kills someone, that soul belongs to it. Since masaki was killed by Hichigo therefore she now belongs to zangetsu/shirosaki/ichigo. But as ichigo has little knowledge of her mother’s death and his quincy heritage(which came from masaki) was at slumber till now therefore masaki couldn’t come out and lead ichigo. However now ichigo’s quincy powers have been awakened and he has known the true identity of his mother, so she is here to help/lead him.
It's either Masaki's flashback kid or Ichigo's son with Rukia... maybe Byakuya's son with Rukia's sister.
Maybe, it's me but some of these theories scare me to death..

I forgot about those two shingiami in the beginning of this Final Arc. Who were they again, exactly...?.
or may be ichigo's quincy side/nature/personality just as zangetsu is his shinigami nature.
p.s. yeah that kid gives Rukia's look.

Someone just told me:
Isn't he the new karakura shinigami (Ryūnosuke Yuki)?
this character must be very important, he is the soul king's alter ego, sent to make friends with the protagonist
But that doesn't make the matter any more confusing. The 2 fodder shinigami at the beginning of this arc have been bugging me occasionally for some time. Just what could Kubo plan to do with them? Even more so, there was no mention of them pretty much ever since they appeared, and I refuse to believe it was just Kubo abandoning them.
Riiiggghhtt!! You somehow all remind me why I decided to stay off forums (besides being unexpectedly busy with new responsibilities) & unless the subject being discussed is actually very interesting or relevant, It will stay that way for now.
The boy in the picture doesn't need to have a use in the sense that he must have a role to play in the story. The theme itself is all that should matter in that picture.
After all the trails & difficult situations Ichigo had gone through & wonders Ichigo had perform, he is now someone who is legendary in every sense of the word. To friends, Allies or Foes
That picture is basically almost saying the exact thing these pages are saying here. http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...4-page-20.html http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...1-page-19.html http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...13-page-7.html http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-chapter-526.html http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...2-page-17.html
It also says Ichigo needs that extremely badass outfit to become even more badass lol
Kubo make it happen!!
What were all you guys/gals smoking coming up with those crazy theories, while forgetting those two new shinigami who got almost killed and were the bait for for the hollow appearances and introduction of VR quincy. At least do the least bit of research next time, like reading the current arc.. Yeah, it really saddens me to see people discussing the manga weekly have already forgotten his character already.
His next appearance.
