... them – and anything like them is evil!” Rangiku said, but Shinji just laughed to himself.
“Then is your friend over here evil?” He asked. “You should have already noticed. In three weeks he has become more powerful than most Shinigami, along with that he is able to summon his Zanpakuto from just air without turning into his Shinigami form and his Reiatsu Level is higher than your average Shinigami would be.”
“You know about what happened three weeks ago?” Ichigo asked.
“I was watching. I was just curious.” Shinji said innocently. “But if I take it right, you saw it when you transformed – didn’t you?”
“Saw what?” Rangiku asked, confused. “What did you see Ichigo?”
“When I was stabbed by my own sword, all time seemed to stop, and in my mind I was faced with another version of myself.” Ichigo said. “And when I got back to my senses, you were unconscious, the Hollow was dead and I was holding a sword and a mask.”
“You’re a Vizard, Ichigo.” Shinji said. “And currently, if you’re Inner Hollow takes control of you, and with the state your in it probably will, the only way to stop you would be to kill you.”
