So I just read this completely false spoiler blog online that was written on like April 1st that others might have read as well for Chapter 400. I know it is false because I read a more trusted (much more) thread that gave a complete layout of the chapter. Plus this blog looked pretty shady.
But, it got me to thinking...what if Kubo did do what the blog said?
Basically, what it said was that Ichigo had really died when he and Masaki were attacked by the hollow, not Masaki. And Maskaki, feeling so grieved about it, gave Ichigo her life.
So basically he's like the reincarnation of Masaki.
The blog goes on to say how this means that Ichigo is really a girl but it doesn't, it just means he has her soul. He's still himself. (Like Inuyasha!)
So, just wondering what others thought.
