Furthermore its shown that Ichigo reaches his house without even going to get his body back to get his body back, he can’t face his father so goes to get help from Ikumi when Isshin Kurosaki appears in his Shinigami form, he definitely wants to talk to Ichigo about his past!

Bleach 528 begins as Ichigo is dropped of at his house, he notices that he’s currently not in his Shinigami body, and that Urahara left his body at his shop. He calls for Urahara’s names when he realizes that he’s still in Hueco Mundo, he wonders who could have taken his body, he realizes that it could have been his father, he hears the door open when Ichigo runs away!

It seems that he’s gone to Ikumi’s place to get some companion ship, she mentions that the one time he comes to visit he comes in the rain with a terrible face, just like a school girl. He says that he’s sorry about this, he talks to himself mentioning that it’s a good thing that Urahara isn’t there, as they’re with Orihime and Chad. Plus he doesn’t know how he can talk to Isshin, his father.

He comes out of the shower, out of nowhere, a boiling hot dumpling is thrown at his face, which Ikumi just made. Ikumi mentions that she’s also dried his cloths, so he can put them back on and go home. She also mentions that it’s a good thing that he came there whilst her son was sleeping because she doesn’t know what he’ll do when he’s there. Ichigo mentions that he’s sorry that he’s always skipped his job but at a time like that he comes there at a time like that.

She smacks her head against his telling her to stop saying sorry and do the job properly. She mentions that she doesn’t care if he feels sorry, lonely or whatever, she  feels as though she’s his older sister, she mentions that she can rely on her whenever he needs it. She mentioned once before children should rely on adults. Ichigo is shocked, he mentions how she can feel that she’s his sister when she’s like 10 years older than him. She goes for the kick when he stops it.

She’s shocked at Ichigo that he said something like that after he mentioned something like that. Someone knocks at the door, Ikumi opens the door and it seems like she can’t see who it is and dismisses the knock and closes the door. However, it seems that Ichigo can clearly see that the person who walked in is a Shinigami, this Shinigami is his father! Isshin Kurosaki.

Ichigo mentions that he’s thankful for everything, and now it’s his time to go home, she gives him her umbrella for the rain. After he leaves it seems like Ichigo had forgotten his Substitute Shinigami badge. She calls for Ichigo’s name but he’s no longer there, she mentions that she’ll just go and give it to him tomorrow. They reach home, Isshin talks asking Ichigo if he wants some of his cooking, Ichigo tells him to quit it.

Ichigo mentions that he came to get Ichigo in his Shinigami outfit, he must already know what happened. He heard from Urahara what happened to him, that he broke his Zanpakuto and that the Zero Division took him. He mentions that he was sent back there, he calls this a coincidence as he knew that it would happen. Also there is no way for him to fix his broken Bankai at this point.

Isshin tells Ichigo that he doesn’t know anything about himself, thus he won’t be able to do anything, Ichigo grabs him and in shock he doesn’t know what he wants to do. Ichigo told Isshin once that he’d wait until he felt it was the right time to tell him, during the fight with Aizen. Isshin mentions that it’s not the time!

He tells him to listen carefully! He’s told that he’s not a Shinigami, he’s not just a human either! Isshin goes on to mention that his mother was a, something which isn’t mentioned. We move onto the past when we see Isshin on the floor as the rain pours on him. A girl arrives asking him if he’s okay. Isshin mentions that he’s a captain who gets saved by a girl.

She appears and tells him that she’s going to heal him so she shouldn’t move, Isshin asks her how she could kill a Hollow all by herself, he asks what she is, she introduces herself as Masaki Kurosaki, and then she goes on to mention that she’s in fact a Quincy who has extraordinary powers! Bleach 528 ends here!

A great chapter, we’ve finally found out the real thing about Masaki and how both of them met for the first time! What a fantastic chapter, and Ichigo’s depression is going to turn to something that even he might not realizes! Can’t wait for next week’s 529, when we could see more of what happened between Masaki and Isshin.

    2 things have been confirmed by the chapter directly or indirectly.
    1. Masaki is a quincy. This was confirmed directly. I doubt she was a strong quincy. From what we can see in this chapter, she seemed quiet and shy and I would assume from that she is more likely a healer.
    2. Masaki’s name was Kurosaki and not Isshin’s. Therefore, it is almost indirectly confirmed that the “uncle” Kukaku mentioned was Isshin who is from the Shiba clan. This explains why Ichigo looks similar to Kaien since they are cousins and it’s not THAT weird to have similar looking cousins.

      Ahh right, I didn’t think to put these things together! It’s interesting to think that Isshin is part of the Shiba clan, although not surprising as Ganju looks similar to him, and Kaien as mentioned by you look similar to him too

    I definitely wasn’t a fan of this chapter. I guess we need the flashbacks for history, but now the plot won’t be able to go anywhere for a couple of weeks/months -_- Already figured that Masaki was a quincy, but I hope that she’s able to fight. And of course, I think we can rule out the fact that Grand Fisher could take her on 1 on 1…or that a car could end this whole thing. I’m guessing that the Soul Society is gonna be antagonistic again and destroy her for virtually no reason causing Isshin to use his FGT and wipe some out, then retreat to earth.

    At least with this plot coming to a close, they can finally write Isshin out of the series…

      Relax. This would a part of the plot. It would probably give an idea on what happened with the quincies 200 years ago. It is essential to the story. That’s why Kubo even made the RG dude kick Ichigo out saying he needs to know his roots.

        Yeah, it’s necessary, but it’s probably not going to be that interesting (For me, mainly because I can’t stand Isshin, I know that there will be a lot who still enjoy it and that’s fine) I just hope that it doesn’t last too long, but knowing Kubo, this could be around for a looooong time. Plus, with Naruto also currently in the middle of a flashback as well..none of the manga are progressing in the current events 😮

      Have you figured out that Isshin could be part of the Shiba Clan? Since “Kurosaki” was part of the Ichigo’s name was from Masaki, it’s only right to mention that Isshin changed his name from Isshin Shiba to Isshin Kurosaki, plus it could explain the similar look Kaien and Ichigo shared…

        Hmm, that would make sense. I actually hadn’t thought about it before, but I would definitely be glad to have a reason as to why Kaien and Ichigo look pretty much identical.

    some of us probably already knew she was a quincy. kubo have us hints about it too. ichigo had a blanket that was a symbol of a quincy, a blanket he got from his mom…… i believe it shows it in one of the movie number 3

    I have question:
    1. how come that it become masaki kurosaki if they not yet maried?
    could it be that the last name kurosaki was really on his mother and not he’s fathers last name?
    2. then if kurosaki was originaly the the last name of ichigo’s mother what is the last name of ichigo’s father?

        Actually kubo gave us clue that Isshin was a soul reaper captain in the Arrancar arc when he was fighting Grand Fischer . When Grand fischer commented on the size of isshin’s sword . Ishhin told that all soul reaper captains can control the size of their sword .

        He has had the captain outfit wrapped around his arm since the very beginning. It was known since then that he was a former captain.

      Ichigo’s father’s name is probably Shiba. Kukaku told in chapter 518 that “Uncle” would be upset if Ichigo went with the squad zero. That “Uncle” is most likely Isshin making Kuukaku, Kaien and Ganju the cousins of Ichigo. That would also explain why Kaien and Ichigo have similar looks. It would also explain why the shiba clan were removed as a noble family because Isshin married a quincy.
      Another thing that does get explained is how come Ichigo, if he was a son of a shinigami captain, didn’t get recognized via his name Kurosaki. Simple, the name Kurosaki is not Isshin’s so therefore, no one would have thought Ichigo is Isshin’s son.

      Masaki’s real name was Masaki Kurosaki, Isshin could have taken the Kurosaki name and yes your correct that it was his mothers name.
      A lot of people are saying that it could be Isshin Shiba! The explanation for this is that Ganju and Isshin look similar, plus it explains why Kaien and Ichigo look soooo similar. Plus Kukaku mentioned something about a uncle this one time in the anime, which could be referring to Isshin.
