After reading the latest chapter, it seemed to me like Isshin acted like a complete dumbass by trusting Urahara so quickly, given the events that lead up to that point.

Let's look at what has happened so far in this flashback:

- A strange Hollow appears in the Human World and Isshin goes there to battle it.
- Isshin notices that the Hollow seems rather Shinigami-like.
- Isshin is struck by a blow and is confident about it being from a Shinigami.
- Masaki is bitten by this 'Hollow' and undergoes hollowfication.

After Urahara revealed his name, it was evident that Isshin had heard of him. Based on the information we know so far, I'd say it was because of the events during the TBTP arc. Now, if that were true, then he should have known that Urahara was suspected of having carried out hollowfication experiments.

It seems very strange to me that Isshin didn't even consider the fact that Urahara was the one that attacked him and that the Hollow which appeared was a result of Urahara's experiments. It would certainly be the most logical conclusion based on what he should be aware of. Yet, as I stated above, Isshin completely trusts Urahara. This is even more strange given how sharp Isshin seemed to be during his fight against White.

Has Kubo been inconsistent with how sharp Isshin is? Or was Isshin actually reacting to something other than TBTP when he heard Urahara's name? That could perhaps explain why Kubo had Ryuuken interrupt them immediately afterwards, although that part can certainly be explained given Masaki's condition.

PS: Please don't try to explain the above by referring to how stupid and goofy Isshin has been at times with Ichigo. It is, quite honestly, irrelevant.
