It depends on how something is killed.
1. If a human dies they become spirits which can ether move on to SS/Hell or become corrupted & transform into hollows.
2. If something is killed by a hollow they're absorbed into the hollows collective.
3. If something is killed by a shinigami they're reintroduced into the cycle of reishi & would eventually reincarnate.
4. If something is killed by a Quincy they're completely obliterated into nothingness.
This is Bleach 101 & was the reason why the Qiuncy were killed off in the first place. How do people not know this?
