Renji Abarai is a luitenant Soul Reaper under Byakuya Kuchiki himself. And always strives to become stronger than Byakuya.
He’s the type of guy who’s standoff-ish, introverted, doesn’t let too many people in, and keeps his distance unless you’re close with him.
If there’s one thing about Renji, it’s his standards and strong morals. Not to mention his tough past. He’s hard on himself.
That’s what makes his quotes shine and reflect his personality + his moments in Bleach.
Let’s share all of the best lines!
Renji Abarai Quotes:
“We at this moment head into the decisive battle. Have faith that our blades will not shatter. Have faith that our hearts will not waiver. And even if our paths should diverge, we all share a heart of iron. Swear that even if the ground beneath us should be rent asunder we will live and return to this place again.” – Renji Abarai
“Listen. I’m only going to say this because you’re the only one here to hear it. All this time, for almost as long as I can remember…decades at least, Rukia and I were separated by a distance so great, we couldn’t even glimpse one another. But the one who brought us back together was you. That’s why I decided. Whenever you found yourself unable to go on, I’d take you onward myself. Carry you if I had to. That’s what I’ve done up to now, and I’ll keep on doing it. Forever, until the day you die.” – Renji Abarai
