I am Nikkari Aoe. I'm an Oowakizashi that was once an Ootachi. Yes, yes, you think my name is strange as well, don't you? But well, I wonder if you can still laugh about it when you find out that it originates from killing the ghost of a laughing woman.
にっかり (nikkari) is similar to にっこり (nikkori) which means to laugh or grin hence why he says it's a weird name.
I am Nikkari Aoe. Yes, yes, you think my name is strange as well, don't you?
Touken Ranbu, shall we start?
Ehehe, I've been waiting.
Ohh, so you're interested in me?
There sure are a lot of straight-laced folk here. Not coming along even if I invite them, how cold.
I wonder how it feels to have killed a young child who came near you, even if it was a ghost.
The young child in the last line refers to the story of his name. It was said that the ghost of the woman Nikkari killed was holding a child.
Certainly, it's said that if you leave me here, vengeful spirits won't appear.
This is a reference to
which was rumored to be haunted until the Kyogoku Clan with Nikkari in possession moved in.
What are you planning to do, making me undress?

Attacking me while I'm in bed... don't blame me if you get cut.
Citadel (Kiwame sendoff)
I guess it's shortening? He's going to become stronger to match you.
Shortening refers to the sword crafting technique that shortens and smooths a blade to make it easier to use.
Well, I guess I am accustomed to battles.
How to best make use of this...
Are you telling me to be dyed in your color?
I'm going to have as much fun as I can.
Expedition Completed (Leader of Expedition Party)
I'm back, here are some souvenirs.
Expedition Completed (Leader of Primary Party)
Everyone in the expedition party must have worked hard. Good job.
It'd be nice if it's someone cute.
It'd be nice if it's something useful.
Repairs (minor injury)
My my, aren't you a worrywart?
Repairs (medium/severe injury)
That's right, a blunt sword is nothing but unsightly.
Now that we've killed, might as well accept the reward for killing.
Come on, show me, there's no need to be embarrassed.
Heh, did you bring me here with you on purpose?
Front Lines & Battles
That's right, swords are made to battle.
Since we've come all this way, let's just pick this up.
Ah, I remember these tactics. I'd like to check if I've got it right.
Now, let us kill or be killed.
If you let your guard down, I might just kill you.
I've seen those moves somewhere before.
This is a pun since "nikkari" is both his name and a sound effect for a smile/laugh.
Uh-oh, that was dangerous.
Are you that eager to touch me?
We're fighting after all, so this much is normal.
I'll cut you down like a stone lantern, shall I...!
This is reference to the story of his name. It was said that after Nikkari killed the ghost, a stone lantern was found to be cut in half the next morning.
Come now, you want me, don't you?
Ah... what a familiar scent, the smell of blood. It's the smell of war...
Nothing beats a smile at the end of the day.
With this, have I become more accustomed to you?
I've killed my fair share... so this kind of thing can happen too...

Horses sure are huge... I meant their bodies, you know?
Sorry to say but I don't have a hobby of scaring horses.
This kind of work... Wouldn't it better to leave it to the decorative objects?
Oh dear, I've got blisters on my hands.
Come now... entrust your body to me.
New Year's Greeting
Happy new year. Which "how to spend the New Year" faction are you part of, I wonder?
Heh...Are you drawing a fortune?
Great luck. Smile widely, and good fortune may come to your home, so the saying goes.
This is a pun since it can also mean "With me (Nikkari), good fortune may come to your home."
