No22: We will now... // pass judgement!! // Former Captain of the Fifth Division, Aizen Sousuke... // ...is to be sentenced to 18,800 years of imprisonment... // ...in the deepest level of the Underground Jail: Jail No. 8, "Muken"!!
[TN: It's named after the deepest and most painful level of Buddhist hell.]
Aizen: ...I see. // So the likes of you pronounce judgement upon me. // How delightfully... // ...amusing.
No34: Treasonous scum!! Do not think that your immortality gives you the right to look down on us!!
[Chairs: XXXIV // XXXIII]
No34: Bind his eyes and his mouth as well!! // Increase the sentence to 20,000 years!!
Yamamoto: YOU UTTER... // ...FOOLS!!!! // You lost
your captain's robes?! / It would be one thing if they were damaged, but to lose them altogether?!! // I am amazed you can even stand here so nonchalantly!! / This is a cause for concern!!
Byakuya: ...Captain-Commander. // Put your worries to rest. / I can easily pay the meagre sum it will take for a few replacement robes to be made.
Yamamoto: That is not the issue here! // And there is nothing "meagre" about it, you fool!! // Now listen!! / Victory is not the only thing that matters on the field of battle!! // What exactly do you fools take your Captain's robes for, anyway?!!
Kenpachi: A nuisance.
Shunsui: A style accessory?
Yamamoto: YOU THICKHEADED FOOLS!!!
Ukitake: Well, the Captain-Commander seems to be in... high spirits.
Ukitake: It's been ten days since the battle... // He may have lost his left arm, but at least it seems he has otherwise made a full recovery. // There is no Shinigami in Soul Society who is ready to replace that man, after all...
Shinigami: Captain~~~~~~~~~! // Captain Kurotsuchi, where are you~~~~?!!
Akon: The Captain's not here. / He's in Hueco Mundo, for research or whatever.
Shinigami: Ehhh?! / He's still there?! What do I do now...?! // You see, Lieutenant Hinamori is here in the Twelfth Division for her organ regeneration procedure at the moment, right? // And Lieutenant Matsumoto came around here to visit her, but...
Akon: Oh, all right. I'll explain the situation myself. // Excuse me, Lieutenant Matsumoto......? // ...Looks like she's not here.
Hitsugaya: *pant* // *pant* // *pant* // *pant* // *pant* // *pant* // (This still isn't good enough... // At this rate......)
Hitsugaya: (At this rate... // I'll never be able to protect Hinamori......! // I have to achieve better control... // ...of my Bankai... of Hyourinmaru...!)
Rangiku: (He's moving onward.........)
Rangiku: (Shuuhei and Renji weren't in their Division buildings, either... // I'm sure they're out somewhere honing their skills... // And I, too......... // You vanished without leaving a single thing for me to remember you by... // That's what I always... // ...truly hated about you. // And yet... // If you had left me anything like that... // I'm sure I would never have been able to take another step away from it. // I suppose... // ...you must have seen right through me.)
Rangiku: (Thank you, Gin. // It's that about you that I always... // ...truly loved.)
Orihime: Kurosaki-kun!! // Eh? / Huh? / We're in... my house?
Rukia: ...Yes. // You have been unconscious for almost a month...
Orihime: Everyone's so calm... / I'm kind of embarrassed... being the only one to cry out like that...
Ichigo: ...A month... // ! / That's right! My powers...
Rukia: I heard from Urahara. // It seems... / ...that you have lost your powers as a Shinigami, yes?
Ichigo: ...I see. / So you heard. // Yeah, it looks like that's the deal. / I guess I'll have to resign as Acting Shinigami, huh?
Rukia: ...As the first stage of your loss of abilities, you suffered great pain, lost consciousness, and the extra time that you experienced within the Dangai flowed in reverse. // You see your hair has become shorter? / Nobody cut it for you. // At this point, your abilities as a Shinigami have vanished. // The second stage involves the stabilisation of your remaining reiatsu, the regaining of consciousness...
Rukia: ...and before long... // ...all of the spiritual power you still possess will disappear.
Ichigo: ...I see. / That figures.
Rukia: ...Y... / ...You are not surprised...?
Ichigo: ...Nah. // I kinda... / ...had a feeling that would happen. // ...Can I go outside?
[Door: Kurosaki Clinic]
Ichigo: (I can't feel the presence of any spirits...)
Ichigo: (Rukia's presence, too... // ...feels like it's slipping away, little by little... // My powers... // ...really are disappearing...)
Rukia: .........This is farewell. // Ichigo.
Ichigo: ......Looks like it, yeah.
Rukia: Oh? / What need is there for that sorrowful look? // You may not be able to see me, but I will still be able to see you, you know!
Ichigo: Oh, come off it. / Like that makes me feel any better! // And I don't have any "sorrowful look", either!
Ichigo: ...Give everyone... // ...my regards, okay?
Rukia: ...I will.
Ichigo: ...See ya. / Rukia.
Ichigo: Thank you.
