Why are you putting so much distance between us? If you want to make sure it hits me, then you should get close and fire. Or is it that you're afraid of letting even a part of me out of your field of vision by getting close? If that's the case, then it's a foolish thought. Distance only has meaning in a fight between equals. With you and I, distance holds no meaning at all. Watch... If I do this, my hand is almost instantly at your heart.
The betrayal you can see is trivial. What is truly frightening and much more lethal, is the betrayal that you don't see.
Reason exists for those who cannot go on living without clinging to it. Now let's go... to the edge of reason.
As you pass into the next life feel honored that you have perished by my bankai.
From this point on, all your opinions are rejected!
We - the warriors, go now to the field of battle! Believe that our blades will not shatter!
Believe that our spirits will not break! Even if we walk separate paths, our iron resolve shall remain united! Swear! That even if the ground beneath us crumbles...we shall return here, alive, again..!
Worrying about a warrior's life on the battlefield is only an insult. I'm not Superman, so I can't say anything big like "I'll protect everyone on Earth!". I'm not a modest guy who will say "It's enough if I can protect as many people as my two hands can handle." either. I want to protect...a mountain-load of people.
