List of Techniques[edit | edit source]
Multiple Weapons[edit | edit source]
- Kousaka Slash: Her usual finishing attack. A powerful downward slash that can literally peel the thin side of a leaf into two halves. When used against opponents, she usually doesn't aim to kill so it usually cuts their clothes. Even then, the force of the attack is usually enough to stun them.
- Kousaka Ryuu: Samidare Shuriken (Kousaka Style: Summer Rain Shuriken): A technique where she launches multiple shuriken at once. Her skill with this is so great that she can even change their trajectory and flight path of the Shuriken while they're still in the air.
- Shinto Kourenzan: A technique where she "merges with her sword" and rapidly slashes her opponent. Said to be the highest level of sword mastery and her most powerful technique. She can perform this technique with much greater proficiency and power than most because she uses her father's last sword, which means there is a special bond between her and her sword.
- Senmaiyoroidooski: Her users a bamboo branch spinning between her hands making into a destructive power able to go through body armor.
- Noshi: A special ancient swimming style that most people used during ancient times. Only a few people still practice this style of swimming out of tradition and heritage, namely for the fact that it was used for quick escapes in rivers and oceans and to build speed in the water.

- Soutou Kyourenzan: An upgraded version of Shinto Kourenzan, Soutou Kyourenzan is a techinque created by Hachirobee Kousaka. Shinto Kourenzan is a mental state where the user moves in sync and becomes one with their weapon, but this technique goes beyond that mental state.

- Kousaka Ryuu: Enbi Tsumujikaze: First, Shigure dodges her opponent's attacks and proceeds to get closer, then she strikes her opponent from an angle at the very moment she gets close enough to them
- Kousaka Ryuu: Yoroigaeshi: The user parries the opponent's weapon away with so much force that not only does it disarm the opponent, but it also destroys the weapon that they were using.
- Kousaka Ryuu, Hien Sandan Giri: The user prepares a steady stance, then with a series of flips with their swords, proceedes to perfectly cut through everything in their direction without desturbing that object.
