Sidetext:斬魄刀を創り出した男・王悦の試練!!
Nimaiya Ohetsu is the man who created the Zanpakuto. This is his trial!!

Renji:・・・何かいやがる・・・

Renji:大量に・・・
A whole lot of ‘em…
Ichigo:・・・あァ

Ichigo:何だこいつら・・・?
What are they…?

Ohetsu:何も怖がるこたないYo
Ain’t nothin’ to be afraid of
Ohetsu:彼らのことは君らによーく知ってる筈Sa
Y’all should know them pretty well

Ohetsu:彼らは
They
Ohetsu:何にでもなれる最強の斬魄刀――――――
Are the ultimate Zanpakutos, capable of becoming anything---------

Page 03
Ohetsu:「浅打」だ
The “Asauchi”*
*TN: “Shallow Forged”

Page 04
Insert text:強襲・・・!!
Blitzed…!!

Page 05
Ohetsu:「浅打」
“Asauchi”

Ohetsu:(六千名を超える護廷十三隊隊士全名が)
(The unmarked Zanpakutos that every one of the over 6000 Gotei 13 squad members)
Narration:(院生時代に一時貸与され入隊と同時に正式授与される無銘の斬魄刀)
(Are loaned during their time in the academy and officially awarded when they enter a squad)

Ohetsu:(全ての死神達はこの“浅打”と寝食を共にし練磨を重ねる事で己の魂の精髄を“浅打”へと写し取り)
(All Shinigami imprint the very essence of their soul on their “Asauchi” by eating, sleeping, and training with it)

Ohetsu:(“己の斬魄刀”を創り上げる)
(Thereby creating their “personal” Zanpakuto)

Page 06
Ohetsu:その“浅打”の全てを1人でクリエイトしちゃッてんのがこのちゃんボク
And it is I, the “Sword God” Nimaiya Ohetsu, who singlehandedly creates every one
Ohetsu:「刀神」二枚室王悦なのSaッ!
Of those Asauchi!

Ichigo:そうかよッ!
Oh really!
Ichigo:じゃあコイツらはその浅打の具象化ってとこか!
I guess that means these things are Asauchi materializations!

Ichigo:で
So
Ichigo:何で俺らがコイツらに襲われなきゃいけねえんだよ!!
Why the hell do we have to get attacked by them!?

Ohetsu:シ―――――オツ!!
Sooooooo close!!

Ohetsu:“具象化”ね
Materializations, you say?
Ohetsu:ハイハイシーオツシーオツ
Yeah yeah, so close, so close

Ohetsu:チョット違うけど今はいいとしよう
You’re a little off but we’ll go with it for now
Ohetsu:重要なのはそこじゃなく
But that ain’t what’s important
Ohetsu:彼らが君らに怒ってるってコト
What’s important is that they’re pissed off at you

Page 07
Ichigo:怒ってる!?
Pissed off at us!?
Ichigo:何をだよ!?
Why!?

Ohetsu:君らの斬魄刀の遣い方Sa
For the way you use your Zanpakutos

Ichigo:使い方・・・!?
The way we use them…!?

Ohetsu:解らNai?
Don’t get it?
Ohetsu:無理もNai
Can’t blame ya
Ohetsu:戦い方?
Is it how you fight?
Ohetsu:振るい方?
How you swing ‘em?
Ohetsu:違うチガウ
Nope nope
Ohetsu:何がチガウ?
So what, then?
Ohetsu:根本が違う!
The basic idea is all wrong!

Ohetsu:道具として使ってきた?
Started using them like a tool?
Ohetsu:部下として接してきた?
Treating them like a subordinate?
Ohetsu:相棒として頼ってきた?
Relying on the like a partner?
Ohetsu:家族として?
Like family?
Ohetsu:友として?
Like a friend?
Ohetsu:先輩
A senior?
Ohetsu:後輩
A junior?
Ohetsu:ペット
A pet?
Ohetsu:知人
An acquaintance?
Ohetsu:恋人
A lover?
Ohetsu:愛人
A sweetheart?

Ohetsu:フザケんじゃ無ェ!!!
Gimme a fuckin’ break!!!

Page 08
Ohetsu:彼らは君らにこう思っTe―
This is what they think of you
Ohetsu:根本が違うってこういう事Sa
This is what it means to have the basic idea wrong

Ohetsu:斬魄刀と死神どっちが上か
Zanpakutou or Shinigami, who’s on top?
Ohetsu:そこンとっから語り合おうZe!!
Let’s start the conversation from there!!

Page 09
Narration:尸魂界・中央地下大監獄
Soul Society – Grand Central Underground Prison

Narration:最下層「無間」
Bottom Level, “Muken”

Kenpachi:・・・・・・・・・・・・ハッ
…………Ha!

Kenpachi:随分大仰な舞台じゃねェか
Well isn’t this a fancy setup
Kenpachi:オイ
Damn

Kenpachi:よくこんな場所の使用許可が下りたモンだぜ
Nice job gettin’ permission to use this place

Unohana:・・・総隊長命令です
…It was the Head Captain’s order

Unohana:「無間」とはその字の如く一分の間も無く閉ざされ
As the characters in its name suggest, Muken* has not a single opening to the outside
*TN: “Muken” means “Without Spaces” or “Infinite Space”. It is also the 8th and most painful of the Buddhist hells. “The Hell of Uninterrupted Suffering”

Unohana:その音の如く無限に等しき広さを持つ
And as the sound of its name suggests, it has essentially infinite space

Unohana:故に
That is why
Unohana:貴方に自在に剣を振るわせられるのはここを於いて他に無しと結論されたのです
It was concluded that this was the only place where you could swing your sword without restraint

Page 12
Unohana:でなければ
Otherwise
Unohana:罪人でも無き我々に
You and I would never have been allowed to set foot in here
Unohana:この地に立ち入る許しなど出よう筈もありません
On account of the fact that neither of us are criminals

Kenpachi:罪人でも無ぇだと?
We’re not criminals?
Kenpachi:どの口が言いやがる
The hell’re you talking about?

Kenpachi:俺もあんたも力が無けりゃ
If we weren’t powerful
Kenpachi:只の罪人だろうがよ!
That’s exactly what we’d be!

Page 13
No text

Page 14
Unohana:そう
Yes

Unohana:今の貴方には力が無い
You’re not powerful as you are now
Unohana:だからこそ此処が相応しいと
That’s exactly why I proposed that this place
Unohana:私が進言したのです
Would be appropriate

Kenpachi:・・・あァ
…Yeah
Kenpachi:そうだろうと思ったぜ
I figured as much

Kenpachi:良いじゃア無ぇか
Fine by me

Page 15
Kenpachi:勝てば隊長負ければ罪人
Win and you’re a captain, lose and you’re a criminal
Kenpachi:あんたと戦り合って死ぬも殺すも
Even if I am fighting you to the death here
Kenpachi:無間地獄にゃ変わり無え
It’s still hell

Unohana:・・・今日は随分と喋るのですね
…You’re rather talkative today

Unohana:私は
I
Unohana:寡黙な貴方が好きですよ
Prefer you when you’re more taciturn

Unohana:貴方の声を聞く度に
Because each time I hear your voice

Unohana:私についた唯一の傷が
My only wound
Unohana:疼いて仕方が無いのですから
Begins to ache unbearably

Page 16
Kenpachi:ぬかせ
Shaddup
Kenpachi:傷が疼いて仕方無えのが
Do you think you’re the only one
Kenpachi:てめえだけだと思うかよ
With a wound that aches likes hell?

Kyouraku:卯の花八千流
Unohana Yachiru

Page 17
Kyouraku:史上最強と言われる初代十三隊
The original Gotei 13 was said to be the strongest in history
Kyouraku:その中
And of them
Kyouraku:十一番隊隊長を務め今の十一番隊の原形を作った
She captained Squad 11 and established the structure it has now

Kyouraku:山じいに力を買われ隊長となる前は
Before having her prowess recognized by Old Man Yama and becoming a captain
Kyouraku:尸魂界史上空前絶後の大悪人
She was the most diabolical person that ever existed in Soul Society
Kyouraku:天下無数に在るあらゆる流派そして あらゆる刃の流れは我が手にありと
Claiming total mastery of every single one of the limitless styles and blades in existence
Kyouraku:自ら名付けた名を“八千流”
She gave herself the name “Yachiru”*
*TN: Yachiru means “8000 Styles”

Kyouraku:“斬術の手ほどき”なんて
Sorry
Kyouraku:ずるい言い方して御免よ
For using that sneaky “swordsmanship training” line

Kyouraku:更木隊長とあんたが
Even I could’ve figured out
Kyouraku:一度刃を交えれば
That if you and Captain Zaraki crossed swords

Page 18
Kyouraku:どちらか死ぬしか無いって事は
One of you
Kyouraku:ボクも解ってた筈なのに
Would inevitably die

Insert text:最凶の戮し合い!!
The most wicked of death matches!!

Just a note about the Asauchi: many places are translating this as "shallow hit", and even Bleach wiki lists it as that. I checked their citation, and there is nothing in the original text to back up a translation as "shallow hit" because "they have difficulty connecting blows". However, the "uchi" character is also used for "to forge a sword" (since you have to "hit" or "beat" the blade). I assume Ohetsu will explain later, but for now I believe this to be the correct translation.
