Quote1.png I just wanted to create something new. My objective was to fling open a secondary new door. I merely used the Soul King as an excuse and a key to open that door.... All I did was live according to my lust. In that sense, my origins are no different from those of Kurotsuchi-san, driven by the insatiable appetite for research at the expense of plenty. Quote2.png
— Kisuke Urahara to Yoruichi Shihōin about the Hōgyoku[2]
