So why is Ichigo's hollow an exception in this part of the anime? All the other people were captains and lieutenants and they were kicked out.
well i don't think you should really connect the filler and the main storyline since there really isn't a connection
but if it was, then the most likely reason for him not being treated as a hollow is because of the central 46 being killed off (they were the ones who treated the vizards as hollows)
