As the war between the Soul Society and the Wandenreich rages on, the seventh episode of Bleach: Thousand Years of Blood War casts an ominous shadow over the origins of Kurosaki Ichigo. How much do we still not know about the origin of the protagonist?

After finally breaking free from Opie's grasp, Kurosaki Ichigo returns to Soul Society intends to avenge any deaths caused by the Quincy invasion. Getting ahead of Your Majesty Yhwach, however, he discovers something rather disturbing in Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War 1x07.

Except that he apparently possesses the powers of both a Shinigami and a Hollow Ichigo boasts of the powers of a Quincy. In Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War 1x07, we see him using the Vein of Blood to defend himself against the mortal blows of the Wandenreich's leader. But how is it possible that Kurosaki knows how to master this technique reserved for the Quincy? Yhwach gives us a hint.

In the last moments ofbleach episode 373, The evil antagonist reveals that Ichigo is his son hidden in the darkness and that the boy doesn't know his own origins at all. The focus of the matter, therefore, seems to be Masaki Kurosaki, Ichigo's mother, who disappeared after colliding with the Hollow Grand Fisher.

To deepen the question that leaves the protagonist of Tite Kubo's Shonen with Hamletic doubts, Isshin will be Kurosaki, Soul Reaper who held the position of Captain of the 10th Division, as well as Ichigo's father. For real Kurosaki also has the blood of a Quincy, as well as those of a Shinigami and a Hollow? In the next few episodes of this final arc we'll discover interesting truths, but in the meantime we'll leave you to the hollow form of Ichigo in this Bleach statue.
