Abandon your fear. Look forward. Move forward and never stop. You'll age if you pull back. You'll die if you hesitate.
Though you fight a fierce battle on the outside, your inner world trembles not the slightest.
To fight...Or to live...Choose.
Ichigo... I hate the rain. Rain falls in this world, too. When your heart is in chaos, this sky becomes clouded. When you are sad, rain falls so terribly easy. Can you understand...the horrible feeling of being pelted by rain when you're all alone in this solitary world? If only to stop that rain, I shall lend you any strength. If you trust in me, I won't let a single drop of rain fall from that sky. Ichigo, trust me...you are not fighting alone.
Just how many times must I strain my voice before it will reach you? And yet, nowhere in this world can there be anyone who knows me better than you.
*referring to Ichigo* I see. So I still haven't reached you...
What are you doing? Why do you run Ichigo? You still have not called me. Face forward, Ichigo. You should be able to hear it now. That which blocks your ears is worthless fear. The enemy is one, you are one. What is there to fear? Cast off your fear. Look forward! Go forward! Never stand still. Retreat and you will age. Hesitate and you will die. Shout... my name is... ZANGETSU! Abandon your fear. Turn and face him. Don't back an inch. Now, Ichigo, advance! Never stop! If you retreat, you will age. Be afraid, and you'll die.
