Guidelines For Using My Translations

[Side text: Hidden memories surface...]
Ichigo: (I was always trying not to think about it. // Back then... // When I faced him for the first time... // I felt as though I had been drawn there by something.)

Ichigo: (Ever since, I've been trying not to think about the reason why. // Why, without any information to guide me, // I had found myself heading straight for him. // Why I knew... // ...that he was the most important "enemy". // And why... // ...when I first set eyes on him...)

Ichigo: (I found myself remembering "someone else"...)

Ichigo: Zangetsu!!!
[Bleach 541]
[The Blade And Me 2]
[Side text: A scream rings out...]

Ichigo: ...What's going on here...? / Zangetsu......
NotZangetsu: ...It is as you have just heard. // And, Ichigo...

NotZangetsu: I am... // ...not "Zangetsu".

Ichigo: So you really are Juchabach...? / Seriously...? // You really aren't... // ...Zangetsu at all...?
NotZangetsu: I am... / ...the source of the Quincy power within you. // I am Juchabach, and I am not Juchabach.
Ichigo: I don't get it!! // Are you my enemy?! / Are you my ally?! // Was everything you told me up until now a lie?!

Ichigo: Which is it?!!!
NotZangetsu: ...I am not your enemy. / And I am not your ally. // However, / there are no lies in my words or in my heart. // The name I spoke to you is the sole exception. // ...Ichigo. // Think back to your own experiences.

NotZangetsu: Whenever I taught you how to use your Zanpakutou... // I always enlisted the aid of your inner Hollow, did I not? // When you were unable to use the full strength of your Zanpakutou... // And again... // When you found your life in mortal danger... // Who was it that came to your aid?

NotZangetsu: It was not I... // ...but your Hollow. // I... / ...never wished for you to become a Shinigami. // That is why... / I suppressed the natural power you possessed before it could fully mature... // ...and took its place in the heart of your power.

Ichigo: ............ // ...Why...?
NotZangetsu: "Why"? // Do you find it so strange... / ...that I should wish to keep you away from danger, away from battle? // If you were to become a Shinigami... / ...there was no doubt that you would become caught up in battle. // You would suffer injury. / You would suffer pain. // And in the end... // ...the time would come when I would have to kill you with my own hands.

NotZangetsu: I could not allow you to become a Shinigami. // If you were to become a Shinigami, I would have to take your life.

NotZangetsu: That is what I thought then. // Yet still... / You continued along the path of the Shinigami. // Through chance meetings and events... / You honed your power ever stronger. / Even as you suffered injury and pain... / You continued to walk this path of your own volition. // And as I watched you forge ahead... // I could hear my heart begin to waver. // In time... / My heart turned away from its desire to keep you from the Shinigami path... / ...and began to favour supporting your own will and desires. // So it is... // ...that I find myself now...

NotZangetsu: ...even feeling a kind of happiness... // ...that the time has come for me to step aside.
Ichigo: !
NotZangetsu: Ichigo. // You have become strong. // I have had the pleasure... / ...of standing by your side all this time, watching you grow. / What greater happiness can there be? // I am satisfied.

Ichigo: W... / Wait, Zangetsu!! // I'm not.........!

NotZangetsu: Ichigo. // The power you have created until now... / no more than a fragment of your true power, which I was unable to fully suppress. // The time has come... // ...for you to fight with your own power. // Take it now. // This is your true Zanpakutou...

NotZangetsu: This is Zangetsu.
