Translations by James "Iyouboushi" (Iyouboushi(at)gmail.com)
Minor corrections by hissori_danko, pocketmofo, anchan218 (from LJ's Soul Society)

Note about my translations:
I'm a beginner.  Some of my translations may not be very accurate.
In any case, I have done my best.  I highly recommend checking out
Manga7's release of this chapter when it has come out.

--------
01

Rukia:

・・・れ・・・
...Re...

・・・恋次・・・!
...Renji...!

Aizen:

・・・やれやれ・・・
...my my...    [note: 'yare yare' is an exclamation of relief or disappointment]

朽木ルキアを渡せ迫る藍染――拒む恋次――そして藍染は刀を抜き・・・血が滴る!恋次!!
Aizen wants Kuchiki Rukia and draws near--Renji refuses--and in succession Aizen
draws his sword...blood drips! Renji!!

--------
02

Aizen:

随分上手くかわすようになったじゃないか
You have reached the point of extremely skillful dodging

阿散井くん
Abarai-kun

--------
03

Aizen:

成長したんだね
you have grown

うれしいよ
I'm happy

だけど
however

できれば粘ってほしくはないな
if possible, I don't want you to persist

潰さないように蟻を踏むのは
in order not to crush an ant

力の加減が難しいんだ
the degree of strength is difficult

[the two lines above might be read as:
It is difficult to gauge the degree of strength in order not to crush an ant]

僕も君の元上官として
As your former superior

君を死なせるのは忍びない
I do not want to murder you

Rukia:

・・・恋次・・・!
...Renji...!

--------
04

Renji:

黙ってろ
Be silent

・・・ルキア
...Rukia

何が・・・
What?...

元上官として死なせるのは忍びないだ・・・
As my former superior I do not want to murder you

だったら何で
if that's the case, then why

雛森は殺した・・・!
did you kill Hinamori...!?

Aizen:

ああ
Ahh

さっきの霊圧の震えはやはり『天挺空羅』か
The reiaki's vibration some time ago was "Tentei Kuura" ?

勇音くんだね
Isane-kun, wasn't it?

雛森くんのことは仕方無かった
Hinamori-kun doesn't have the means

彼女は僕無しでは生きられない
she cannot live without me.

そういう風に仕込んだ
I trained her to be that way.

--------
05

Aizen:

殺していくのは情けだと思わないか
you don't feel killing her was mercy?

そして彼女を手にかけたくなかったのも事実だよ
And the truth is I did not want to kill her by my hand.

だから少し手間をかけて
That's why I went through that trouble to try and get her to fight

吉良くんや
Kira-kun

日番谷くんと殺し合って貰おうと思ったんだが
Hitsugaya-kun and the others to the death

[corrections for the past 3 lines by pocketmofo]

中々上手くいかなくてね
It did not go very well, don't you think?

だから仕方無く
That's why, as a last resort

僕が殺したんだ
I killed her.

Renji:

そうかよ・・・
I see...

吉良も・・・雛森も・・・
Kira...Hinamori...

あんたの掌で転がされてただけだってワケかよ・・・
were just rotating in the palm of your hand?!...

--------
06

Aizen:

君もだ
you as well

阿散井くん
Abarai-kun

Renji:

・・・良く解ったぜ
...I understand well.

あんたはもう俺の知ってる藍染隊長じゃ無えって事がな
you are not the captain Aizen I know.

どんな理由があるか知らねえが
I don't know what your reasons are but
[corrected by anchan218]

死んでもあんたにルキアは渡せねえ
even if I die I won't hand Rukia over.

Aizen:

もう
Another

自分の知る藍染惣右介ではないか
So I'm not the Aizen Sousuke you know anymore, huh?
[corrected by hissori_danko]

残念だが
It is regrettable, but

それは錯覚だよ阿散井くん
that is an illusion, Aburai-kun.

--------
07

Aizen:

君の知る藍染惣右介など
The Aizen Sousuke that you know

最初から何処にも居はしない
from the beginning also did not exist

Renji:

咆えろ
Howl (Roar)

蛇尾丸!!!
Zabimaru!!!

08

end of hypnosis 5 [Standing to Defend You]

いつも、いつだって、この背は君の前に
Always, whenever, this height is before you

--------
09

Aizen:

始解か
Shikai?      [Shikai is "beginning solution"]

その痛みきった体では始解が精々だろうが・・・
with that pain cut into your body Shikai will probably be your best but...

わかっている筈だよ
you already know that.

--------
10

Aizen:

始解じゃ
Shikai

時間稼ぎにもならないってことはね
won't even help you stall

Renji:

くッ
Kuuu  (something like "Argh" or just a generic sound]

--------
11

わかんねえさ!!!
You couldn't have known!!!

Aizen:

困った子だ
bothersome child

--------
12

Renji:

(Thinking) 素手で―――――――!
with bare hands-----!

Aizen:

やはりあの三人の中で
I knew it.  Among those three people

君が一番厄介だよ
you are number one trouble

阿散井くん
Abarai-kun

--------
13

Aizen:

確信だ
I was confident     [not sure]

君達三人に初めて会った時
From the moment I meet you three people

僕は君達が『使える』と確信した
I was confident all of you were "useful"

--------
14

だから君達護廷十三隊に入った時
that's why the moment all of you got into 13 groups (divisions)

すぐに三人共五番隊に入隊させた
all three of you were directly enlisted into the 5th group (divison)

そしてより役に立ちそうな二人を僕とギンの部下にした
And the two most useful became subordinates of Gin and I.
[corrected by hissori_danko]

一番厄介そうな君は
You were the first trouble

早々に他隊に飛ばした
and were quickly sent to another group (division).

どうやら僕の勘は
It seems my perception was

正しかったらしい
correct.

最後だ
Final [warning]       (could also be "This is the end")

朽木ルキアを置いて退がりたまえ
Put Kuchiki Rukia down and back away.

Rukia:
ま・・・
wai...

待って下さい藍染隊長
please wait captain Aizen.

私が
I will

Renji:

・・・断る
....I refuse.

Rukia:

!

恋次っ・・・
Renji...

Renji:

黙ってろって言った筈だぜ・・・
I said to be silent...

・・・ルキア
...Rukia

--------
15

・・・放さねえぞ・・・
...I won't release you....

・・・誰が放すかよ・・・
...Who's going to let go of you?...  [corrected by hissori_danko]

バカ野郎が・・・!
foolish girl...!     [note: 野郎 doesn't really translate well, in my opinion]

Aizen:

そうか
I see.

残念だ
What a disappointment.

--------
16

(Surprised looks, no dialog)

--------
17

Ichigo:

・・・よォ
...yo

(Ichigo has blocked Aizen's sword, he's in Bankai form; no dialog)

--------
19

Ichigo:

どうしたよしゃがみ込んで
Why are you squatting close to the ground?

ずいぶんルキア重そうじゃねえか
Rukia is extremely heavy isn't she?

手伝いに来てやったぜ
I came to help out

恋次!
Renji!

待ち望んだタッグ!勝機は―――・・・!?
The tag team you've been waiting anxiously for!  Is there a chance?
