...isn't that the Shinigami symbol (like the one on Ichigo's badge) bleeding down Tousen's chest? :O Really pretty, but also creepy.

SAKANADE IS SUCH A PRETTY NAME *___________*
You know, it never really occurred to me to think that Tōsen joined Soul Society in order to avenge his dead friend -- it seems like such an obvious conclusion, too, but I was thrown by his friend having been a Shinigami: she believed in Soul Society and what it stood for, but I guess Tōsen doesn't really give a shit about what his friend would have wanted. I'm not sure if that's boring or interesting as a development; I hate Tōsen too much. >.>

Either way could play out nicely, though if Tōsen is just talking about himself and not trying to taunt Komamura, I'm not sure how to take that, since that sort of means he has enough respect for Komamura to try and justify himself. :?
BUT WHAT'S GOING ON WITH SHINJI OMG KUBO YOU ARE SUCH A TEASE. T_T
