That was easily predicted & many predicted it. Isshin losing his powers to protect her FUTURE wife
If the spoilers are true, that heavily implies that Isshin lost his powers saving Masaki's life.
Neat. I'm really liking this flashback so far.
but isshin and masaki have both turned out being very good characters you can understand why ichigo turned out so well , and so strong
I'm finding the flashback really enjoyable as well. Seeing...
A) The fact that both Masaki and Isshin are people of good conscience who don't vilify another person based on race/species/type of soul and how this contrasts with the depiction of TPTB in Soul Society with their stiff rules and sometimes brutal infliction of what they call 'justice.'
B) Getting to know Ryuuken more closely to learn why he hates his own kind, and later forces Uryuu to promise not to help shinigamis
C) Seeing Aizen do something besides talk big and look invincible (Well, except for that small matter of losing to Ichigo's FGT and Urahara's sneaky kido!). Here, he is a scientist, with an innovative, highly curious mind. He's a mad scientist, of course, but it's nice to see him through a different lens and get some more development.
I hope that we learn soon what happened that got the Shiba clan shunned by the other clans. And I also hope we see a connection somewhere in here to Juha Bach and how he knows so much.
Seriously? That's how Masaki's condition will be cured? And Urahara immediately finds a way to fix this unique situation? Lame. Plotkai, so we meet again.
What's worse, Soul Society will look for Isshin, and if I get it right and he will pour his reiatsu into Masaki, isn't that going to be exactly what had happened to Rukia? I'm not saying Masaki is going to become a Substitute Soul Reaper, but it may still spell trouble for Isshin. No wonder Shiba clan fell.

It seems like Kubo copied from Sleeping Beauty
Anyway, I'm not sure what to say about this. Most of us can predict it would happen like this due to the insight of the future timeline. Still, I'm really disappointed about this result. Oh well, nothing is perfect after all.
So This is the real reason their zanpontou's are the same because Isshin put it in Masaki.
Looks like MS's translation was the correct one last week.
I really dig Isshin XD
Nice chapter ) Isshin is da man and yes, poor Ryuken.
However, those 100 years ofr experementing with souls, hollowfication and quincies are kinda disturbing...and i gues it is the only explanation about why Ichigo is so special, he got the ballance, all 4 species in him.
lol, that page where Isshin is trolling Urahara and Ishida. Thumps up! I don't know how exact the translation is, but it seems like Masaki dying is the reason for Isshin to slowly gain his powers back - not the Hougyokou. Still, i wonder how Isshin knew about the Final Getsuga Tenshou. He told Ichigo about it like he had used it himself, but obviously he didn't.. or he did and didn't lose his powers. At least we know why Ishida and Isshin are friends. He respects him for that decision and he probably had to be their babysitter. Next Aizen is playing a bit amor in order to make both of them fall in love and making sweet little Ichigo. Masaki now is the hybrid of Hollow, Quincy and Shinigami.. that's quite insane.. And gets eaten by Grand Fisher -.- I wonder if that was also Aizen's work or purely random
