So you're telling me the guy who sends the person who is trying to become "God" flying with just the flick of a finger is about to do so because he is built???? C'mon man... you gotta come up with something better than that. I know it's Friday night and you may be knocking a few back... but seriously?
Like I said, based on the evidence that kael produced... there are three options:
1. Zero squad
2. 7th division captain
3. Kubo fucked things up
It's that simple. I mean Ichigo is going to be the end all for this manga, why not have him come from the lineage of one of the strongest shinigamis (which will probably show to be one of the strongest noble families in the upcoming chapters as well). We know Isshin was a shinigami 20 years ago (captain level mind you), but he wasn't around in the pendulum arc.
My money is on him being Zero squad.
