Something it' s strange about Isshin....Little is known about Isshin's history, except that he was once a powerful Shinigami, though his division and actual rank are currently unknown. About twenty years ago, he ceased being a Shinigami.
I tend to think that Isshin was part of the Squad Zero...that's the most plausible way to think because we wasn't seen in the flashbacks with the former captains.
The problem is that there have been soo many open ended scenarios that should have been looked at or developed for whatever direction kubo has in mind that isshin could easily be one of these.
It is very plausible that we get no further explanation about the who, what and why about him.
I'm hoping that's lot the case but isshin could easily be left as he is with no further development.
On a side note what I'd love to happen is that at some point he begins to train ichigo on different ways to use getsuga.
Honestly I want a bigger arsenal of tecs from ichigo since his Growth and his bankai from the first arc have now been made redundant!
