Write down a quote from a recent episode or chapter.
Make a separate headline under the appropriate header for each individual quote you have. Use a descriptive title for the header. For example, if you wanted to list a quote from Ulquiorra about Espada above four not being able to release under the dome, you might put: ===Ulquiorra Cifer: Las Noches Dome=== for the header. Bold the quote so it stands out.
All quotes must contain a reference listing specifically where it came from. For quotes from chapters, they must come from the Cnet version; that way we won't have six of the same quote, just from different scanlations. You must list not only the chapter, but the specific page number(s). For episodes, provide a link to the episode and list the approximate time the quote was said at. Quotes without references will be removed.
For a quote to count, it must have been said by one person with as little interruption from other characters as possible. It must be easily understandable without the context of the quote provided. Unnecessarily lengthy quotes will be removed.
The quote must have been featured in a chapter or anime episode (either a new Japanese episode or newly dubbed English episode) released this month.
Posting quotes before the release of the new chapter or episode in English is in violation of the Spoiler Policy. DON'T DO IT!
"Listen. I'm only going to say this because you're the only one here to hear it. All this time, for almost as long as I can remember...decades at least, Rukia and I were separated by a distance so great, we couldn't even glimpse one another. But the one who brought us back together was you. That's why I decided. Whenever you found yourself unable to go on, I'd take you onward myself. Carry you if I had to. That's what I've done up to now, and I'll keep on doing it. Forever, until the day you die." - Renji Abarai to Ichigo Kurosaki in Chapter 682.
"I don't know if you ever attended the Academy, but when I was there, I was never taught to fight for the sake of my superiors or my family. 'A Shinigami should give his life to protect his friends and humanity.' We and Kurosaki may be allies, but it is they who are Ichigo Kurosaki's friends. If they are to fight as true Shinigami, they should without a doubt be rushing to Kurosaki's side." - Tōshirō Hitsugaya to Byakuya Kuchiki in chapter 674.
"It's true that loyalty isn't everything to me. I just have a personal interest in His Majesty. Does that make it sound like I'm looking down on him? That's not my intention, of course. The Human World. Hueco Mundo. Soul Society. The guy's trying to destroy three whole worlds and create something new in their wake. Is there any other man who can claim that? If I were to let His Majesty get away, do you think I'd ever find another man like that again? Kisuke Urahara. You're a knowledgeable guy. You look like you've seen everything this world has to offer. So I ask you: don't you feel it too? Aren't you curious to see what His Majesty is going to create once he's destroyed three entire worlds?" - Askin Nakk Le Vaar to Kisuke Urahara in chapter 664.
"You don't want to give me this sword, do you, Captain? Is it for my sake? Just as my mother decided to cast aside her curse of her own will, I choose with my own will to take that curse upon myself. And besides, even if I do become cursed, I will...No... I have a feeling the one I love will be the kind of man to scoff at the notion of a curse and laugh it off as ridiculous." - Nanao Ise to Shunsui Kyōraku in chapter 651.
"Just now, did you feel...despair? Can it be you truly felt despair? Really? What was that? Maybe I misheard? I'm afraid I can't hear you. Let me take a better look at your face! Because it couldn't possibly be, now, could it? You, who lectured me about what it means to be a scientist! The very thought of it is preposterous. A mere artificial life-form dying? What part of that warrants despair? You remember what you said to me, don't you? To a scientist, perfection is worthless. Perfection is despair. You detest perfection. Correct? If she has died, then that is wonderful! She died because she was not perfect! Her death represents an opportunity to create something still greater! That should be your reaction, should it not...?" - A hallucination of Szayelaporro Granz to Mayuri in chapter 643.
"You beat me, Jugo. Dammit. Things never quite go how you expect, do they? I always thought I'd be more frustrated when you finally beat me." - Bazz-B admits his feelings to the victorious Jugram Haschwalth in chapter 634.
"Honor? Is that what you are all talking about? Then let us speak instead of our duty to the Gotei 13. Honor will not protect the world. I do not believe that using evil to defeat evil is itself an evil act." - Shunsui Kyōraku to the Gotei 13 in chapter 622.
"From the day I learned of the reason I had survived, I was always thinking of this day which would surely come. My life was saved from certain death. If I can offer it for the sake of the Gotei 13, I have no regrets." - Ukitake to Urahara in chapter 616.
"As I already told you, I can see everything. Before the power I hold, such notions as 'understanding' and 'countermeasures' become meaningless. All that I see with these eyes is powerless before me. Do you still think me a mere nameless being? My name is Yhwach. The man who will steal everything from you." - Yhwach to Ichibē Hyōsube in chapter 610.
"I've restrained my dazzling splendor so that common folk like yourself might better behold my visage. No need to feel insulted, my dear. Compared to myself, all others are 'common folk'." - Mayuri Kurotsuchi to Giselle Gewelle in Chapter 590.
"All human beings have things that cause them to feel comfort, and things that cause them to feel fear. When they enter a place that causes them comfort, if questioned as to why they feel comfortable there, they cannot form a clear answer, merely saying things such as 'because I do'. But when they enter a place that causes them fear, even the dullest of fools can identify the causes of that fear. Darkness, cold, height, confinement, pain, contamination. People can list any number of reasons to be afraid. This is because at the most fundamental level, 'comfort' leads to 'life', whilst 'fear' leads to 'death'. While people cannot give a clear answer why they want to live, they can give any number of answers why they do not wish to die. This does not only apply to sentient beings with emotions. It is in the nature of all life to avoid death, and therefore, to avoid 'fear'. All living beings go through life for the purpose of evading fear. It is to better escape fear that they train themselves. It is to better escape fear that they grow and evolve. Thus, it is impossible to be unaffected by fear as long as you are alive." - Äs Nödt to Rukia Kuchiki in Chapter 567.
"In the earlier battle, His Majesty has already scattered fragments of his own soul across all of Seireitei. This battle is a battle for His Majesty. Not only we of the Sternritter but also any Shinigami who have come into contact with His Majesty’s soul will give up their own souls as offerings to His Majesty upon their deaths. No matter who perishes in this battle it will only serve to bolster His Majesty’s strength and to extend His Majesty’s life. To His Majesty, battle is life itself. If he does not continue to absorb souls, eventually, he will return to the body he once had, unable to see, to hear, or even to move. His Majesty will never cease to do battle. There can be no escape. Both you and I must live for His Majesty and die for His Majesty." - Jugram Haschwalth to Uryū Ishida in Chapter 565.
December 2013/January 2014
"Soon enough, your life as a Human will end. You will become nothing more than a vengeful beast. Until the moment that happens, wallow in rage. Curse the world. Writhe in the throes of your vengeful heart. I will drink of your deep black hatred, and it will sustain me once more. Ah, Sajin. Little Sajin. I must thank you for doing this for me. Thank you for struggling until you become a dumb beast, all for my sake." - Sajin Komamura's Great-Grandfather about Sajin in Chapter 558.
"Quincy Vollständig. We couldn't use it, you know. This power. Not while we had your Bankai. They got in the way. So I guess we should be thankful. For restoring our own power to us! You'll soon regret, dumb Shinigami, that you ever sought to get your Bankai back. The warm and pleasant battles like a midday nap, filled with hope, end here. - Bambietta Basterbine after releasing her Quincy: Vollständig."
"I mean if I was gonna make you die, I'd reckon I'd have to try out way too many different tactics. Sorry, but I'm just awful with that kind of finicky stuff. I like to get things over in a flash y'know? You can go fight with someone else. Well then, later!" - Askin Nakk Le Vaar seemingly backing out of his fight with Mayuri Kurotsuchi.
"Zangetsu, I won't ask you to 'lend me your power' any more. And I won't tell you 'don't get in my way'. I won't even say 'let us fight together'. I'll fight for myself. Thank you, Zangetsu. You are me."-Ichigo thanking Zangetsu in chapter 542.
"What is this? What is happening to Masaki? What's this thing like a Hollow Hole? Why is she suffering so much? Why...Why didn't I stop her that time? Why didn't I join the fight and help her that time? Why..." - Ryūken Ishida regarding Masaki Kurosaki's Hollowfication.
"You know, the fact that before acting you think about aunt, Quincy, the future, and many other things is something that I really like about you. But I'm not you. To me, "caring about myself" means to do everything in my power, every day. If today I don't do what I can because of some custom and someone dies because of it, I won't be able to forgive myself tomorrow." - Masaki Kurosaki to Ryūken Ishida in chapter 531.
"Excellent, Kenpachi Zaraki. With this, it's over. Heh. Like a child. Why are you so sad? You recovered your real strength and were able to defeat me. I do understand that many fights will go back to being boring little games to you. But now you have enemies to fight, friends to argue with and more importantly your 'partner', that awakened together with you. All that I've been holding so far, I leave it to you. I don't have anything any more. The name Kenpachi that I couldn't give you that time, finally left my hands too. I'm going to die, Kenpachi Zaraki. Celebrate in my place. Aah. I feel so much happiness dying knowing that I finally fulfilled my duty." - Retsu Unohana to Kenpachi Zaraki in chapter 527.
"I am strong. Stronger than anyone but you. That is why I will kill you. A hundred, a thousand times. That is why I will heal you. Over and over again. Until you return to be your old self and surpass me to go higher and higher." - Retsu Unohana in Chapter 525.
"To create life, murder the King and take the seat of God for himself was his plan. Sōsuke Aizen. Truly, that man is the very embodiment of evil. However, be warned, Ichigo Kurosaki. The evil of the Quincy we now face will surely eclipse even his." - Senjumaru Shutara to Ichigo Kurosaki in chapter 519.
"The Gotei 13 does not exist to mourn the deceased or to cry over damage done. It exists to protect Soul Society. Let's look to the future, shall we? We are the Gotei 13, after all." - Shunsui Kyōraku to the other captains in chapter 515.
"As a captain of the Gotei 13. To be unable to defeat the foul intruders who dirty the soil of Seireitei. Who have brought about the deaths of many soldiers and brought sadness to those soldiers' subordinates and families. To lose my life in defeat at the hands of such wretches brings me great shame. You, meanwhile are a Human. By all rights, you should never have become involved in this conflict. Indeed, you should never even have come to this place. Yet now at the end of my life. I ask you to forgive me the vile hubris of making one request of you. Please protect Soul Society. Kurosaki Ichigo!" - Byakuya Kuchiki to Ichigo Kurosaki in chapter 512.
"Fear can be overcome. This is what experienced fighters tend to believe. "Fear with a reason" is gentle. You can stop it with experience and with your willpower. If you know the reason you can wipe it away by eliminating the source. But real fear doesn't have a reason. Because it's not a feeling, it's instinct. Real fear has no reason and no limit. It's like a horde of bugs crawling up your body. We cannot escape our instinct." - Äs Nödt to Byakuya Kuchiki in Chapter 501.
"Watching over Izuru always provides me with the most remarkable inspiration. Just by holding a guitar in his presence, I find the melodies well up like tears unbidden. If Izuru were to be gone, my Flying V too will mourn." - Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi to NaNaNa Najahkoop, Chapter 495.
"I order all captains to prepare for battle immediately. Their soldiers announced that war will start in five days, but how can we trust the words of the wicked cowards that made such a heinous raid on us? Make your preparations as quickly as you can. We will not let them have the first move again!" - Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, chapter 488.
"Your eyes, they hold many questions. You wish to ask who we are. And yet you have already realized that we will give you no answer to that question. It should not be so difficult for you to deduce the answer for yourself. Farewell." - Luders Friegen to Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, chapter 484.
"From the very beginning Ichigo has never changed. He has always been a firm, unchanging figure. While I and everyone else and even the ancient, stubborn ways of Soul Society itself have been changed utterly by his actions" - Rukia Kuchiki about Ichigo Kurosaki in chapter 476.
"I had always believed that battle was an art to be perfected through meticulous training and preparation. But today, for the first time, I was able to comprehend the thrill of indulging one's more primal instincts. You have my thanks. This battle was an enjoyable one." - Byakuya Kuchiki to Shūkurō Tsukishima in Chapter 472
"No man's life is worth more than another! If you're gonna put your life on the line, you do it as equals! I don't care if you're brothers, or master and apprentice, or whatever! You should only die for a guy who'd die for you! There's nothing honourable about throwing your life away as though it's nothing! That's just showing off like a kid!" - Ikkaku Madarame to Moe Shishigawara in chapter 468.
"I have nothing but contempt for the way you do battle. Rather than face your opponent in fair combat you prefer to toy with your enemy, stealing away the things they hold dear. You are a coward. A shameless coward who deserves to die. Now, face me like a man. Before you have even finished swinging down your blade I will strike you down and toss your worthless body aside." - Byakuya Kuchiki to Shūkurō Tsukishima in chapter 464.
"Ichigo, these fools do not realize that it will take far more than this farce to drive you to despair. They do not understand how many times you have faced certain despair and emerged victorious! Show them, Ichigo! Make them see that despair holds no power over you!" - Rukia Kuchiki to Ichigo Kurosaki in chapter 460.
"It could be that our friends and family will just see us as deranged murderers and carry on believing that we're the ones in the wrong. However, whether it will fix this or whether it won't, in order to get Tsukishima out of their lives killing him is the only option we have left! Can you do it? Do you have the resolve to take his life even with no guarantee things will change?" - Kūgo Ginjō asks Ichigo Kurosaki if he can kill Shūkurō Tsukishima, chapter 454.
"Don't you get it!? You're not a Shinigami now! You're fighting with a flesh and blood body!! Have you fought too long in a spirit body and lost your sense of reality!? You're flesh and blood! You can die!! If you keep on taking my attacks with your flesh and blood body then you're gonna get beat to a pulp and die!!" - Jackie Tristan to Ichigo Kurosaki in chapter 443.
"If you were to turn into a snake tomorrow and begin devouring Humans, and from the same mouth you devoured Humans, you cried out to me "I love you!" Would I still be able to say "I love you" the same way I do today?" - Gin Ichimaru in Episode 308.
"Ichigo, you may think you're hiding it, but to be honest you've been a sad sight since you lost your powers. You want to fight, right? Not being able to personally protect the people around you really gets to you, right? You don't have to hide it Ichigo, because feeling that way makes you who you are." - Yasutora Sado to Ichigo Kurosaki in chapter 433.
"Look at this world! This world of yours, which was once a cluster of skyscrapers that thrust upwards at the hopeful heavens has been reduced to the scenery of that little town that is so familiar to you! The rain that continuously fell on this world may have stopped, but now everything has sunk to the bottom of this ocean! All of this, Ichigo, is because you fell into despair and halted your progress. Ichigo, I will not let you go on like this. Right here, right now, I'm going to drag out the source of your despair." - Tensa Zangetsu to Ichigo Kurosaki in Chapter 410.
"Are you gonna sit there and cry about not being able to protect people again!? Think carefully about what Aizen heading to Karakura Town in Soul Society means. It means that all the people in Karakura Town, both the ones you want to protect and all the others, are gonna fall into Aizen's hands and die." - Isshin Kurosaki to Ichigo Kurosaki in Chapter 407.
"Y'know it's useless now. I've been with Aizen-san for a long time an' this is the first time I've seen something like this. Well, I suppose that's a given since he went and absorbed the Hōgyoku while we weren't paying attention. You get it, right? There ain't nothin' more to be done. You an' all them folks are gonna get killed and that'll be all she wrote." - Gin Ichimaru to Ichigo Kurosaki in Chapter 404.
"If you didn't tell me until now, you must have had your reasons. And that's your problem, not mine. I wouldn't know how to start. I can't think of any way of asking that wouldn't mean traipsing all over your feelings and staining them with dirt. So I'll wait. Until you decide someday that you want to tell me, until you decide it's time for me to know. Until that time comes, you don't have to say a thing." - Ichigo Kurosaki to Isshin Kurosaki in Chapter 398.
"You think that you can strike me down if you suppress Ryūjin Jakka? How naive. How dizzyingly naive. Why do you think that I held the position of Captain-Commander of the Gotei 13 for a thousand years? It is because, in a thousand years, no Shinigami stronger than myself has been born." -- Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto to Sōsuke Aizen in chapter 394.
"We Zanpakutō are nothing but weapons used for fighting. I think there's something in our hearts that we're lacking. I was proud of my powers. So I thought it would be nice to move about as I please and Muramasa took advantage of that weakness in my heart. Back then, I truly believed that I could do anything on my own. But this incident has made me realize otherwise. There's nothing a weapon such as myself can do... Without you there to serve as my heart, I am merely a weapon of destruction." -- Sode no Shirayuki to Rukia
"Don't be mistaken. We haven't come here prepared to die. We're fighting to live. All of the protecting the world nonsense is nothing more than a grand cause with a nice ring to it. We're fighting so that we can live. So that you can live and to protect everyone else from Aizen's grasp" -- Suì-Fēng to Ichigo Kurosaki in Chapter 389.
If something sad happened in your life, I would be there for you. If something happy happened in my life, I would share it with you. If you strayed from the path, I would admonish you. If you committed an error, I would forgive you. If you found yourself in a predicament, I would provide a foundation on which you could stand. All in order to make this man that had lost his love for the world... be able to love the world once more. -- Sajin Komamura reflecting on his friendship with Kaname Tōsen in Chapter 386 (The Bestial)
All creatures want to believe in something bigger than themselves. They cannot live without blind obedience. And to escape the pressure of that trust, those in whom faith is placed in turn look for someone higher than themselves. And then people in turn look for someone even stronger. That is how all kings are born. That is how all gods are born. -- Sōsuke Aizen to Shinji Hirako in Chapter 383 (Too Early to Trust)
