My guess would be that they are the killed/dead quincys with the same hollow power Ichigo has. Not some failed, out of control or whatever experiment.
If you remember back there was time when Ichigo had just a part of his mask. And the thing that the quincys were killed 200 years ago does not mean they did not existed 800 year before that.
But what confuse me lot is that the shinigamis can't kill anybody: Slash a hollow -> lose/dissolve power + go back to "hell"(sorry don't remember the name), hit a soul -> go to SS. But if they can kill, that just make them the same as the quincys 'cause with that they make unballance in the world. So the quincys they killed are either in SS or in "hell", and being killed does not erease your memory of your life, and if they will beat them it will not change a f* thing.
I'm really confused...

nice chapter! although it hadn't got a lot of developments,and we know now less than before,it had a lot of explanation: so taht Ivan guy isn't so bad after all,and he is a quincy,and yamamoto has been declared war.
Shinigami kills a Hollow -----> Send them to either Hell or SS
Shinigami "kills" a plus ------> Send them to SS
Shinigami kills a living Person (like a Quincy) -----> Turns them into Souls and sends them either to Hell, SS, Hueco Mundo or they stay in the real world.
With the Quincy it's like this:
Quincy kills anything soul-based, be it Hollow, Shinigami, Plus or whatever ----> Completely erases the victim
I am quite impressed with the chapter! It is quite unlike Kubo to speed up the story.
Usually he'd take endless pages to revolve around what is what...
Right now - shit has just gotten real - and it is exciting!
Remember the old times, when the mere sight of an arrancar used to take out the soul of these people..?!
Well not anymore! They now would prefer eat some bread!
Also how nonchalantly people seem to enter SS - worse - in the lair of the commander unnoticed, seems baffling!
The 'quin-rrancar' doesn't seem to want Ichigo much harm. Maybe he just wants to talk with him...
Either way, I am looking forward for the next chapter!!
I guess i was wrong, its the Quincy after all
Wow, the first time that i saw Yumichika, i thought he was an elf!
But i prefer him like this. Those things on his eyebrown bothered me.
I like the idea that Ivan might be an experiment. But maybe it's a pure Quincy idea, not a result from the crazy captain (Kuro-something).
I liked the chapter.
when i read it was the quincy i was like NOOOO!!!!!!
but maybe they are arrancar at the same time. Maybe they're spirits who turned into hollows.
Good chapter , i also was wrong thinking that Quincy weren't involved . Hmm well now that i think about it Quincy do have a reason to declare war on Shinigami after what happened in the past, 200y ago when Shinigami destroyed the almost every Quincy with the exception of only a few. Their time for revenge has come it seems though the thing i don't understand is their appearance , i mean what's with the hollow mask , could it be that they conducted some experience and evolved with the help of Arrancars ? Hmm i like how the story is progressing so far
i actually liked this chapter, not sure what to think about the dissapearing people, that is pretty creepy stuff, and the captain commander may have to lay the smack down on someone !!!!!!!!!!!!

hopefully this arc will bring bleach back to the awesomeness we experienced in the beginning of the series
OBVIOUSLY! that's clear now,do you know why Ivan got angry when he was said to be an arrancar? because arrancar is a hollow with shinigamis' powers,while vizards are shinigami which hollows' powers. so that Ivan guy is something else,the combination of a quincy and a hollow!
Come to think of it maybe this is what goes on: quincys absorbed a lot of Reiryoku like Ishida when he faced Mayuri but from Hell giving them this arrancar like appearence.
I have one question, are we sure that Ivan who came to meet Ichigo is an enemy or not. Also is there any relation between Ivan and the people who came to declare a war on Yamamoto.
On a side note, Inoue was pretty fast there in opening the window.

the interesting thing about it is that the quiincy's have the ability to throw off the balance of the worlds by making the souls "dissapear" as opposed to the soul burial or soul slayer sending the soul to the proper place, as demonstrated when they first explained why the shinigami's decided to eliminate the quincy's
this arc could very well become very epic
