So we've seen that souls (ghost) in the living world retain their memories, even if they've turned into a hollow. However, do those memories get purged when they are sent to soul society?
The reason I ask is because I'm wondering what would happen when Ichigo died? Conjecture - he gets integrated right into a squad, new squad made with him as captain, etc, etc... Since he's basically qualified as a shinigami through trial by fire anyway.
