Bleach: Chapter 397
It's about fu*king time. Just as I and many others stated last week Aizen knows Isshin.
Ichigo gets shaken up by Aizen's speech
Furthermore, Aizen tells Ichigo that the focus of his own quest was for Ichigo's growth,
from the meeting with Rukia and sudden attack from a hollow, the menos appearing for the quincy's scattered bait,
finding Rukia in the living world, and being reported to SS,
fighting with Shinigami captains in SS and everyone else, forcing Ichigo's power to rise,
didn't he think it was strange? - so says Aizen to Ichigo while stopping his slashes with a hand.
and all the while Aizen is still unharmed, "Isn't it the truth that I know everything about you?" He asks Ichigo.
From Rukia staying in the living work out of duty, who do you think,
gave Renji the Reiatsu detection equipment to seek her out, who do you think,
gave the vice-captains the report about Ichigo and co.'s progress and other information, who do you think,
besides me, who could after all, have over a 100 years confirmed the whereabouts of the hougyoku?
And after all that he asks Ichigo whether he has the confidence to say that he knows it all perfectly
Aizen has, from the beginning, since he had been born, has something to return to him.
You've been special the moment you were born, especially why you are a shinigami-
and at this point, Isshin comes, and then it's on to next week.
Lets predict next week chapter shall we? I bet will be another conversation coz i believed this is the first time Ichigo see his father as a shinigami.
What if Ichigo is not Isshin's son? What if his father is Aizen or somebody even stronger? Him saying "I know you since the day you were born..." is kinda telling.
when you think about it, Ichigo looks nothing like Isshin and he's the only one who has bleach hair(neither one of his "sisters" got this color of hair). And knowing this is a shounen manga, it is not that far fetched.
Finally a chapter with some possibilities, I could of done without all the I know this and that talk from Aizen. Perhaps cut that talk in half, it will probably end up that Ichigo is the king's son and that Isshin is one of the king's guards instructed to look after Ichigo until he is ready to take the mantle from him.
Another boring chapter imo.
Either way you slice it Ichigo is destined for supreme greatness due to lineage.
This chapter is not different from last week's main difference is that last spread where Isshin FINALLY makes his appearance. All Aizen does, seemingly from the spoiler, is give us a recap of ichigo's step ladder past..... which im all too fondly tired of already. The only thing we can hope for is Isshin and Aizen's convo next week revealing, if not entirely, just a hint as to what position Isshin held as a shinigami back in the day. Urahara may also be lurking around somewhere.
Its not far fetched at all.... in terms of resemblance his facial features are somewhat similar to Isshin, but now that you mentioned it he does resemble Urahara a whole lot more.

Anyway, at last there´s some who´s on par with Aizen on the scene (I hope that at least... where the Hell is Urahara and Yoruichi?
Probably helping Mayuri and the other left behind Captains and Ichigo rejects escape from Hueco Mundo... my guess is as good as yours.
