    All about - Fear

    From chapter 70 -
    Being feared and respected by humans, and making them feel small and weak. This is the general concept of "fear". In simpler words, activating fear means exerting a wall of pressure and making your presence even bigger than usually felt. The flow of air becomes dominated by you. Like what is said in youkai legends, the surrounding air and mood changes suddenly. Doing this a youkai can induce the best use of his powers.
    Activating Fear is "Hatsu", transfering it is "Hyoui"
    The way to sever one's Fear is to break his flow of Fear. The correct way to disrupt the flow is not trying to exert a bigger flow, but by materialize your Fear into an attack that can counter the opponent.
    Come here to talk everything about the development of fear as we learn more about this strange power.
    1 - "Fear" is feelings towards things as of yet unknown, the word that expresses "Youkai". It's not only "terror" inspired by evil deeds, "towering" feeling when facing huge creatures, "anxiety" when facing threats, "intimidation" of being ruled but also overcome people with the feeling of "awe".

    71 - Everyone's "Fear" is different. Converting Fear into a skill requires you to make use of the special attribute available only to your type of youkai.

    98 - Hyakki Yakou is a group, one large force. The greater the strength of the leader the stronger the group will become. Conversely, if the leader's Fear is weak, they are reduced to mob and won't become strong. And in turn, the strength of that Hyakki Yakou will come back to the leader as well. By forming a strong bond and trust that strength will be returned as "capability".

    I think its a very interesting concept and I liked that/how it showed up, though I'm still confused about how it can be used in battle.

    Re: All about - Fear

    Fear has two variants: Hatsu and Hyoui. Hatsu is power emission, that is, releasing power from yourself, while Hyoui is power infusion or possession, that is, transferring it to a weapon of some kind and using it. Though I'm not sure myself either of how that works...

    Re: All about - Fear

    I think Hatsu is the activation of Fear, using youkai's power to make the enemy falter. While Hyou'i is concentrating Fear, transfer it to weapon or body, to break opponent's Hatsu.

    ...Why do you spell Hyoui like that? I mean, it's not like there's a possibility that it can be confused with any other spelling in Japanese and it's just one kanji (even if it's a non-existant kanji)...

    Re: All about - Fear

    It just a habit. No deep meaning on the spelling...
    Speaking about Hatsu and Hyou'i, which do you think Hatsu and which do you think Hyou'i?
    I think it's :
    Hatsu : Nurarihyon's Meikyoushisui, Aotabou's Gourikiraisan, Mezumaru's string and woman disguise, Inugamigyoubu's Tamazusa no Ha, Inugami turned into giant dog, Sodemogi-sama sleeve grab, Kyoukotsu (daughter)'s skull attack, Minagoroshi Jizou's possession, Awashima's Ikusa Otome Enbu, 27-men 1000-ju mukade's Torii labyrinth
    Hyou'i : Nurarihyon's Kyoukasuigetsu, Tsurara's ice attacks, Kurotabou's Ankikuroenbu, Kubinashi's hardening rope, Kappa's Mizuchi-dama, Gozumaru's Gozuinmasou, Muchi's Kaiihachijinfuuheki, Yosuzume's Genyakou, Gairouta's Takekaze, Itaku's Rera Makiri, Awashima's Izanami and Izanagi
    Ougi Meikyoushisui Sakura is onmyoujutsu, so I don't think it's Hyou'i.

    Re: All about - Fear

    I remember a character in Chrome Shelled Regios who used a type of wire just like Kubinashi...

    Why wouldn't Kubinashi's Hyakki Yakou form simply be a tangle of ethereal wire connected to Nenekirimaru's tsuba?

    Makes sense, really.

    Re: All about - Fear

    Reyfon and Rintens' Steel Thread is a deadly weapon in Regios, compared to them, Kubinashi's Black String specialized more to it's durability, not the sharpness. His cat's craddle skills bind/strangle his enemies to death, not cut them off.
    Though it will be cool to see Rikuo use it like in Regios. But, then, how about Kejourou? Her fear will be somehow kind of similar with Kubinashi.

    Re: All about - Fear

    Maybe a Kubanashi and Rikuo combo will allow his sword to stretch and become flexible like a chain sword or something like that.

    Matoi and the different methods

    Kurotabou was talking about different methods of doing matoi. It is very important to analyse your opponent's skills for using the right one. I was wondering if different methods mean that Rikuo can do simultaneously two or three methos and thus do more than one matoi at the same time.

    Is this said before? Any opinion?
    The biggest virtue is to support these Seven Deadly Sins in their fight!!!

    Re: Matoi and the different methods

    maybe he can do it but it already said that using matoi is make them(the one that used) tired

    but what makes me curious is if there is many different method then there are many form for 1 matoi so what will happen if rikuo use matoi with tsurara/zen/itaku using the method kurotabou teach him
