Disappear. My sword does not exist to crush insects like you.
Your blade will never be able to touch me. Ever.
Well done. That time, your fang definitely touched me.
Something as useless as emotions, I never had them to begin with.
This twisted spritual pressure… that white mask… Are you a Hollow?
What is that? Are you saying that this small thing is a bankai? Isn’t it just the sealed form of your zanpakutō? I see. First the execution, and now Bankai. I can see that you enjoy treading on our pride. Very well, then. I will carve into your body…The punishment for injuring our pride!
Kurosaki Ichigo, my sword has been broken by your freedom of spirit.
Are you telling me to exploit an opening for the likes of you? Do not speak out of your league, boy.
The arrogant one is you, Espada. But rest at ease. The reason for your loss is not due to that arrogance. It is simply due to a difference in power.
As you pass into the next life feel honored that you have perished by my bankai.
I… despise the way you fight. Without ever lifting your own hand… To steal bonds of camraderie and torture opponents is the height of cowardice. It is a lack of shame deserving of death. I am here. Strike me down. I shall kill you and cast you aside… Before you finish swinging your blade.
“Control”… you say? When you stand before me… that word holds no meaning. Bankai. Senbonzakura Kageyoshi.
The fact that you consider yourself as an equal to me, is being arrogant in itself.
The curtain that falls down at the end, shall be pulled down by the blade of my sword.
I don’t remember saying that I would kill you because I’m a Soul Reaper. The reason I am killing you is simple. It’s because you aimed your blade at my only pride.
Sovereignty means absolutely nothing in front of me.
Arrogance destroys the footholds of victory.
That’s not possible. With your ability, you couldn’t even make one of my knees touch the ground.
You and I, our levels are as distant as the earth from the heavens. Must I spell it out for you? I have discarded my left arm, discarded my left leg, and yet even then I have not nearly lowered myself to your level.
It is a thousand years too early… for you to become worthy enough to die by my Bankai.
Put away your sword and you shall live…unless you’re still dreaming about defeating me. Did you forget, or did it just never occur to you…that I have Bankai as well?
Remember that a sword held by someone who is about to die… will never be able to protect anything.
You’re slow, even when you’re falling.
No choice, then. Before you become intoxicated by your own power, I shall show you a decisive power gap that you could not overcome in a millennium of struggle.
Be proud as someone who, after being struck by this power, is still able to retain the shape of a body.
The Kuchiki clan is one of the four noble houses. We must set the standard for all shinigami. If we do not abide by the code…then who will uphold it?
No matter how strong a defense, a stronger offense will always shatter it.
Let me tell you about the difference between you and me. It’s like the story of the monkey trying to capture the moon. However close he thinks he is to the moon, it’s still just the reflection of the moon in the middle of the lake. No matter how he struggles to capture that “moon”, he inevitably sinks to the bottom of that lake to no avail. You will never reach me.
