Post by shinryu » Mon Nov 06, 2006 8:19 am

in the ancient arc kabane myouun used some type of blade to kill people what power does he have and what exactly are the powers of the kabane family and another question what exactly are the powers of sohaku and the kago family

Nobody knows as yet.

Nobody knows? I thought Kabane had those blades, he used them a ton of times. I don't understand why so many say his power is unknown, the only thing unknown is the name of them.

Control of the pole-arm, by making one seem like many (which, by the way, doesn't that sound a lot like Tsumuji Mataza Yorihira's power? See http://tjtg.mangatranslation.com/charac ... cters.html) does not seem like the Kabane family power to me. The name clearly indicates that they have something to do with the dead. Oh! Great even said as much in the Ultra Jump Special on Tenjo Tenge.

As for Kago Souhaku, it looks like his power is to transfer his consciousness from one body to another via his eyeball, and to prevent things from dying (shouldn't this be Kabane's power?)

I also think that in the Ancient Arc, the family powers are not quite as well delineated as they are in the "present" time. They did talk about how specialization occurred, but maybe that continued even after the ancient arc.

Control of the pole arm? Tsumuji Mataza was from a branch of the Kabane family and his red feather powwer was the dragon claws a slicing ability almost identical to the ancient arc Kabane's blades. Souhaku's power is the ability to keep ki flowing and thus prevent death including in himself.

That was my guess as to how he controlled Madoka and Fu.

19th of December, that is.

I believe Oh! Great is skipping a month as usual, since 6 chapters have been out, a new volume is in the works and he is taking a month-long break.

At least, he always did that in spring and fall.
