Sasakibe Chōjirō, 1th Division
"Oi, Sasakibe, would you like to be my Lieutenant?"
"Pardon me, Sir?"
"Well, I think about founding a new academy! An academy for young warriors! I will teach them everything I know, and the best of them will become captains, of course I would be one myself. You would be my Lieutenant, and those youngsters would be servants of justice."
"This sure is a great idea, Sir."
"Ah, Sasakibe, be honest! And stop calling me Sir, that makes me feel so old!"
"But Si- Yamamoto-Genryūsai-san! You are in top form; there's no need for you to feel old."
"Ha, stop comforting me, old liar! And I know you try to change the topic - but I won't let you! So, tell me what you think about my idea."
"Call me Shigekuni already!"
"Yes, Si- Shigekuni-san. Well, I think this academy is a terrific idea..."
"No, no but! It's just ... Do you think those young men-"
"Oh, I will accept women too, you see? There are also brilliant female fighters!"
"So, do you think those young men and women will share you ideals?"
"Hu? What do you mean Sasakibe?"
"Shigekuni! At least when were alone!"
"Shigekuni-san, those young men and women of today are surely different. They believe in other ideals and morals; what will you do if they do not come to understand the beauty of your teachings?"
"Are you worried I might kill my own students?"
"No, Si - Shigekuni-san, I know your composure is most admirable ; But you are to kind, I'm afraid it would hurt you most if your own students were to turn against you."
"Gee, Sasakibe, you are one pessimistic guy for real... Have a little more faith in the word around you! And though I appreciate your concern for my feelings, but I'm really not such a nice guy."
"Si - Shigekuni-san! Do not belittle yourself! You are the strongest and purest man I have ever met!"
"Hu? Chōjirō, say, you do not fancy me?"
"Ah, just kidding, just kidding Sasakibe... But I really think founding this academy is a good thing. The young people of today need some guidance, and a place were they can grow and find a reason to live and fight. Will you be my Lieutenant, Sasakibe Chōjirō?"
"Of course I will, Si- Shigekuni-san! I would give my life to serve you!"
"Ah, keep your life Sasakibe, I like you better when you're alive. So, you will stand by side then?"
"Yes, Si- Shigekuni-san, I will."
"Good, for I'd have no one else but you as my Lieutenant, Sasakibe. Let's make this acadamy the best one!"
"I told you it's Shigekuni!"
"Sorry Si- Shigekuni-san!"
