As Hitokiri Battousai, I have committed so many crimes that I cannot possibly repent for them. That is why I had secretly believed that it didn’t matter when I died or was killed. However, now… even if I am formally punished or restrained. I will never lose the will to live.
When one person kills, resentment is born. That resentment makes a person kill again. To sever that vicious cycle–that is the purpose of this sword that cannot kill.
