I know that this is now out of the cards, but I always pictured Ukitake succumbing to his disease and Ichigo taking over as Squad 13's captain with Rukia as his Lieutenant.

So technically Ichigo could wield a spirit sword... but then I don't think he's Quincy, and that he'll gain their powers. The chance is there tho as there IS a tiny little chance that Masaki was Quincy somehow...
Even for Shinigami powers, and it be be inherited we see different results. Take Ichigo hes for sure the most tallented, also he could clearly see ghosts/souls. from young age. Of his sisters only Karin seems to be able to. Yuzu has high sensing but other then that shes not much different from a regular human. Yet all 3 have the same parents.
Now for Ichigo to be a Quincy, its possible but why is it needeD? It gives nothing extra for him. Other then maybe explain more about his mother.
The most likely scenario to me is the next arc will involve the Quincy and in turn be about Ishida. Pointing out who the main supporting character in each arc thus far is a useful thing, and out of Ichigo's friends with powers, only Ishida has not been featured as the main focal point in an arc.
Ishida didn't become a Shinigami or a Vizard when he fought along side Ichigo in HM (Chad didn't either for that matter), so there's no reason to assume Ichigo will have any connections to the Quincy. Yes, Ichigo became a Fullbringer like Chad, but that was only a vehicle for Ichigo to regain his powers (and we can assume BOTH of Ichigo's parents were attacked by Hollows, his mother died from it, and obviously his father is a Shinigami which fulllfills the requirement for a person to have a Fullbring). Unless something else is revealed about the Quincy, I just don't see Ichigo's mother being a Quincy, nor do I see a reason for him to have Quincy powers.
That makes me wonder how well Seele Schneider will work against an Shinigami's blade, since it's the only real close range weapon the Quincy's have shown so far.
Edit: And for my previous post I meant the idea of Ichigo having and using a bow (a long range weapon) very much out-of-character to me :/

Here, the whole stuff + more in one piece.
After reading all of that, the next arc = Quincy/Hunters is like, 289%. Funny that Kubo isn't even trying to surprise us
"- The foundation for the next Arc will be about certain "bodies" that Mayuri researched about in the past" I thought it'll be about the bodies he found in HM, but 'researched in past' shows at Quincy's yay
"- Rangiku's Past will play a key part in the story" I wonder if it's about the experiments I assume Aizen has done on her. I'll be happy to see more of Lts, and.... I hope for Gin in flashbacks aw~ *OO*
"- Some Vice-Captains possibly obtaining Bankai. Yumichika is a good choice. Izuru's Bankai would be really gross" Yumichika in bankai will be pretty hax me thinks, the same with Kira. It just means the
antagonistsQuincy side is hella strong.
"- Flashback of how Rukia felt when she was offered the position of Vice-Captain for Squad 13" More Rukia development, love you Kubo
"- The mystery of Ichigo's Birth
- The meaning of the "True Blood" that Grand Fisher mentioned
- The relationship between Isshin & Ryuuken and the thing they seem to be hiding
- The secret of why Ichigo and Kaien look so similar
- The truth behind the death of Ichigo's mother"
Shiba Isshin, Quincy Masaki, maybe Ryuuken is Masaki's bro, really *OO*
Gotta reread Grand Fisher scene.
"- An event will happen that will leave Seireitei in ruin" Again
"- Kubo laughs and hints at the end of the interview that the Shinigami could possibly know who the new enemies are" Sure they do, they tried to kill them all 200yrs ago/they made a pact to let each
As they'll probably more, more, much more stronger than Uryuu is (I mean, his father is like, you're a n00b, and Uryuu defeated Mayuri lol), they'll do great against shinigami. We'll see lots of new Q techs and weapons.
Soul Society -> Ichigo is shinigami
'Vizard arc' -> Ichigo gets the mask
Hueco Mundo -> Ichigo becomes full hollow (Ichigonator)
Fullbring -> Ichigo becomes fullbringer.
The assumption is based on this. He becomes everything he comes across. Even tho I can't imagine him with Q powers, the possibility is somewhere there. I seem to believe more and more that Masaki was a Quincy.
To be honest, I don't like the possibility of shinigami fighting quincies. I don't think such a fight will happen anyway, at least not based on what was said in the interview. To the best of our knowledge, all quincies have similar techniques which would make them overused and the fights a bit boring after a while. I think Ryuuken will fight alongside shinigami against a common enemy, which IMHO would be cool. There're not many quincies left anyway and I don't think a place full of ice would be a proper location for humans to live in.
IMHO Masaki was likely a fullbringer or a quincy, she had spiritual powers after all. Masaki might be Ryuuken's or Ginjou's sister, the Isshin-Ryuuken-Ginjou triangle hides dark secrets, which is probably about (conditions surrounding) Ichigo's birth and his being true blood. If Soul King has something to do with Masaki's death, it can be proper motive for Ichigo to rebel against the King. Bleach was at its best when shinigami were fighting each other, IMHO a conflict between SS and Royal Dimension should be the way to go. Dethroning the King and establishing a new system would also be an appropriate way to end Bleach.

OMFG i can't believe Shinji really is on the 1st ever color page!!!! it seems Kubo really does have his stuff planned out!!! this is shocking!!!
but the real highlight of this interview...is KUBO ACTUALLY GIVING AN INTERVIEW!!! lol
The Ice Palace isn't made of ice - he said "It's like an Ice Palace", it's a palace-like building made of blue, silver and white material. If you remember the place where Ishidas were training under the hospital, it was silverish, built by syntetized spirit particles or something. And it hid their spiritual presence. It makes sense that remaining Qs were able to build a building made of spirit articles, which also hides their presence.
We've yet to learn what really happened hundreds of years ago. Was it really only destroying the balance of souls? Or is there more? Were Quincy's almost wiped off, or is there a pact between the two sides about which only the high-positioned shinigami know? Did Mayuri break the pact when he started hunting Qs again?.. We'll see...
