I am Ichigo Hitofuri. I am the only Tachi made by the hand of Yoshimitsu of Awataguchi school.
Yoshimitsu is a master of Tantou, and thus my younger brothers are generally Tantou.
My former master, Lord Toyotomi Hideyoshi had me adjusted to fit him, and I became this current form.... However, the memories of that time were burnt down along with Osaka Castle.
Hitofuri means "one blade" and Ichigo can be translated as "once in a lifetime." In other words, "Ichigo Hitofuri" is the first and last of his kind.
I am Ichigo Hitofuri. I am the only tachi crafted by Awataguchi Yoshimitsu. The Toushirous are my younger brothers.
'I have dropped as dew and vanished as dew.'
This is the first half of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's death poem, one of Ichigo Hitofuri's previous owners.
Touken Ranbu, shall we begin?
I have been expecting you.
Since my former master wasn't tall, I was adjusted to this current form.
My clothes are too flashy for my demeanor...? Hahaha! That would be the influence of my former master.
Please take care of my younger brothers.
I am waiting for your return.
Please don't bother yourself... I'm used to it.
Line removed as of Feb. 18, 2015
Aah....... the flames, everything!
Citadel (Kiwame sendoff)
To match the master is in a sword's nature.
It's the same thing as leading my brothers.
I will be going. While I am not around, please take care of my brothers.
Expedition Completed (Leader of Expedition Party)
Please confirm the results.
Expedition Completed (Leader of Primary Party)
Shall we go welcome the expedition party?
Collecting swords...? No, I have no complaints about it.
A reference to Toyotomi Hideyoshi's edict in 1588, which confiscated all swords from everyone outside of the samurai.
It is completed. Please accept it.
Repairs (minor injury)
I will change my clothes.
Repairs (medium/severe injury)
Don't worry. It's a wound that can be healed.
Front Lines & Battles
Are we going to the front lines?
I'll scout the enemy formation. Afterwards, shall we crush every one of them with grace?
Ichigo Hitofuri, entering!
Are we practicing for battle? Even though I never want to lose again...
The Yoshimitsu name isn't just for show!
Is this because of re-tempering the blade...
I don't really understand myself. What kind of face am I making now...?
From here on out, I won't allow you to do as you please!
Our sworn enemy is just within. Be prepared.
I am grateful for this honor.
As I grow stronger, I feel like I'm becoming a different person from my past self......No, although I wonder if it's a good thing.
Aah...... the world is burning...... I'm returning, into those flames......
Internal Affairs Please go here for special Internal Affairs interactions
Hahaha. Horsekeeping, huh.
There are different kinds of horses too, huh.......
It would be unendurable if starvation tactics were used against us.
Possibly referring to the fact that his former master, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, used a starvation tactic during the Siege of Tottori
Like this, the emergency stores should be sufficient, right?
