What Ichigo really is?
So just exactly how special is Ichigo? when Ichigo and his dad were fighting Aizen on top of that building in Karakura town (manga reference btw) and it was when Aizen was telling Ichigo about how he's been watching him the entire time he's been in Soul Society and how everything he's encountered was because Aizen put that task in front of him? Well at the end of his speech he's saying how Ichigo is special and mentions that he's different from everyone else, he's about to tell him something but before he can, Ichigo's dad shows up and stops him.
Anyway Aizen was saying that he's "Human and....." "Human and....."
We can assume he's going to say Human and Shinigami, but what does it really mean? We know that he's a Human, Shinigami and part hollow. In this new saga we aren't sure whether or not he still has his hollow powers, but since he does have his shinigami powers again I'm almost HIV positive that his hollow side will comeback.
My main point is, what make Ichigo different from the visoreds? he's actually alive! everyone at the soul society was killed off from the real world and thats how they entered the soul society. Ichigo on the other hand, go his powers from a fluke accident from Rukia. So he's still alive, but a shinigami as well and hollow. I'm not sure what it all adds up to, but Aizen had his eyes set on him for reasons that weren't fully told because of his unexpected death. And more proof that he's something that is unseen, is at the beginning of this new Qunicy arc and one of the rogue Quincy's attacks Ichigo from his house, he tries to use that technique that won't let him go Bankai but it won't work on him. Just as Buckbeard expected apparently, so he must know something about it as well.
Here's the link to the manga of where Aizen is talking to Ichigo, http://www.mangahere.com/manga/bleach/v45/c398/
Hopefully the link shows up, if not its at the very beginning of manga chapter 398
