The Substitute Pass can be seen by everyone now because it's just a normal object.
I don't think that it's "just a normal" object. I think it's every important somehow but since Ichigo lost his powers people can see it.
Also I wanted to point out I didn't read anything about Ishida purifying hollows. Only that he protects the town because of Afro-sans stupidity.
Lastly I wanted to point out that the end character reminded me more of Isshin than Aizen. However, they all bare a resemblance to each other. Not just in manga drawing style where everyone kind of looks the same but I think it's intended that all these people look like Ichigo. (or Ichigo looks like them.)
We have all been saying for years that Aizen is probably related to Isshin and Ichigo somehow. This guy might be the start of an explanation.
And you would fucking think that after two years Ichigo's dad might explain to him how and why he's a damn shinigami. Not to mention explain pretty much everything else.
Yea, what's up with his dad. After all he is involved in all of this. So alright Ryūken Ishida didn't tell his son anything cause he wanted him to stay away from the Shinigamis but what's Isshin's excuse?
He's a shitty father? He knew the truth about the mom's death, instead he let him live with the guilt of the event. He constantly let his son go out and fight things w/o really knowing anything (even with Rukia's explainations, there was still a lot left out). Even his daughter was endangered by hollows. All he needed to say to them was "if you see any giant monsters wearing a skull-like mask, RUN!".

I want to know what happened to the Vizards, Nel, Grimjaw, etc - you know, all the interesting characters. I also want to see who the new captains are (I'm hoping Renji's one).
She has always had high reiatsu she could always see souls and she can see some hollows too, this was made clear when Yammi sucked up the souls in the KT and hers wasn't taken, if I remember right she could always sense Orihimi even when she was in SS I think the only time she could was when she was in HM.

^ Thats because the basic facial structure for Renji, Ichigo, Aizen, Isshin and Hitsu (all to name a few) are practically the same with the exception of hair styles.
While he does look like Renji I think he's made specifically to look like Aizen/Ichigo/Isshin.
We could all be wrong though and it could just be Kubo not noticing his own drawing styles.
I do think there's a purpose though because if you looks at characters like Mizuiro or Hanataro it shows that Tite can use different styles.
I'm not reading into the face structure at all this is something that mangake do all the time it just fits there style.
@Yazen: Mizuiro has a female facial structure look at him and tell me he doesn't look like Orihime with short black hair same goes for Yuzu, and Karin looks like Byukuya from TBtP.
This new guy might be the reason why it's against the law for a Shinigami to give their powers to human.
so whats up with ishida, didn't he lose an arm? how'd he regen...
That was in his spirit form most likely.
And I think of Aizen not just because of the facial structure but how th emouth and eyes look like.
