The treasured sword once in the ancient shrine of Mt. Aso, is now somehow here. Hotarumaru's arrived!
According to legend, I was once completely repaired by fireflies, and that's where I got my name from.
I'm Hotarumaru, from the shrine on Mt. Aso. Tada! This is what you'd call a "headline-worthy introduction," right?

Ouch! Don't touch me. I'm hurt.
