Is anyone actually surprised by this, since day one it's been stated that Ichigo looked like Kaien Shiba and we never saw anyone else from his family at the time, plus that comment Kuukaku made about uncle being mad was a dead give away. The only thing that caught me off guard was who his VC turned out to be.
Also Isshin is now the ultimate perv
i actually predicted isshin was the captain of squad 10. same for his vice. only thing that surprised me . wastoushiro being third seat.
Him being the captain of the 10th division didn't shock me at all because in Turn back the Pendulum he wasn't shown in it and he wasn't shown on the cover with all the other captains at the time, I can't remember if Rangiku was in TbtP maybe that's why that caught me off guard a little.
^ yea...for some reason I figured Isshin was pre-shinji and the hollow incident.
Well we knew he was more recent as Urahara said he had not been a shinigami for 20 years.
