    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The attack in which Kazuki wraps his lance's cloth around the lance and uses the cloth's energy to increase the destructive power of his lance is called the "Jousting Crusher" (which, in later episodes, he renames as the "Sunlight Crusher"). However, when calling out the attack name, he incorrectly calls it the "Jousting Slasher", which is when Kazuki just charges at the enemy, using the energy from his cloth to propel himself.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Washio: It's in the nature of all living things to fear death. To me, having lived in the wild, that is completely understandable. What my master has done is not wrong. You probably wouldn't want to die like that either. If you swear to leave my master alone, I'll let you go. Fearing death and trying to escaping it is not disgraceful, nor evil.
        Kazuki: But if I run...someone else will die instead. How can I stand aside? How can I lose?! How can I let Tokiko-san die?

      • Kazuki: (to Washio) As you said, death is frightening. I know because I've already died once. Chouno knows because he's facing death. But both Chouno and I are human! So there are things that we musn't do even if we die, and things that we must do even if we face death!
