The strong shall live and the weak shall die. That’s the natural order of things. I can’t understand why you have to help the weak, weak people are irrelevant. Shishio made me realize that the strong should live. He taught me to kill the weak and be aware of the strong people. Shishio gave me a sword, and if not for that sword I wouldn’t be alive today.

He also made me realize that I don’t have a choice. If I don’t kill them, they’ll kill me.

But the truth is, I never really wanted to kill anybody.
