^Hahaha I thought I was the only one who noticed that lol.
Urahara - "Oh....So you saw IT"
Aizen knows something completely disturbing about the King's identity. Aizen just seems an idealist in a very twisted way, I don't know. He was probably an evil dude trying to overthrow another evil dude, the soul king.
And also, judging from the color picture spread we got Mugestsu turns Ichigo into a partical hollow? i said that cause his skin is part human part hollow like. He also had hollow mask type teeth by him mouth bandage.
"He is now declaring his words to the WORLD!"
^From the looks of it, it's not even a bandage it's all hollow, the whole thing cracks and falls apart like his mask it's just designed to look like a bandage.
Who's to say that Ichigo can't just do the soul link method again?
Also I think it would be really hilarious if the Spirit King was a Monkey/Hippopotamus/Penguin/Flamingo type hybrid thing.
Would make the manga worth it..
