Izuminokami Kanesada Toku
和泉守兼定 いずみのかみかねさだ 特 とく
I'm the sword famous for having been used by Hijikata Toshizou, Izuminokami Kanesada.
...Even so, I was created not by the highly regarded second generation Kanesada, but by the eleventh or twelfth generation. Well, that was the beginning of the end of the samurai era. I've got no complaints about being born.
Kanesada's character and most of his sentences are directly inspired by Hijikata Toshizō.
I am Izuminokami Kanesada. I'm cool and strong! Recently, I'm a popular sword.
Number one! Don't do anything that breaks the Samurai code!
Kanesada is actually saying (Bu)
Shidô (Gentleman's Path), the same expression used in Kyokuchuu Hatto (局中法度).
Alright, let's get started.
Just being practical doesn't look good. Just looking pretty isn't useful. So, I focus on both.
Swords aren't just about looks, however having good looks isn't a loss. You could say it's like having another weapon.
Kunihiro....? That guy, he called himself my assistant without telling me.... Well, he is quite helpful though, you know?
What are you doing. Could it be... that you are charmed by me?
I'm not like those other guys, maintenance is key if you're using me

Damn it... it won't be like this next time!
Citadel (Kiwame sendoff)
Well, it's the passage of time as they call it… Also, to keep up isn't a bad thing.
Yeah yeah, is it ok if I'm vice-captain?
His previous master Hijikata Toshizou was the vice-commander of Shinsengumi.
It's my responsibility, so I'll lead firmly.
Not bad, it's quite useful. Now what matters is how you coordinate these.
I'm not like those other guys who think "It's fine as long as it can be used".
Pretty good. You've got good taste, huh?
An expedition, huh... but since it's work (I have to do it)
Expedition Completed (Leader of Expedition Party)
Look, our rewards this time.
Expedition Completed (Leader of Primary Party)
It seems that the expedition troop has come back. Good work, good work!
A new team member is here.
Hmm, you put this here.... This is confusing...
Repairs (minor injury)
It's just a mere graze, though...
Repairs (medium/severe injury)
Sorry... give me a while, I'll be back to perfect condition...
Not bad... my blood's boiling!
Looks like the mission was done properly. Nice, nice.
Haha~! The results of your battle... so this is how it feels, huh.
Let me just say, even if you're my master, I won't lend you any money
Front Lines & Battles
Hehe, feels good to have no guns or cannons stealing the spotlight!
Oh - there's some extra findings in a place like this.
Collect information. Watch out for a diversion.
We're here to conduct official business!
Reference to the famous line Shinsengumi Captain Kondo Isami allegedly shouted at the start of the
. Modern equivalent would be "Police! Open up!"
Alright, alright, let's have a fun practice, shall we?
目潰し (metsubushi) is literally the act of (usually throwing sand or the like) at your opponents eyes to blind them.
Killing by cutting is my forte.
You've taken me too lightly!
This bastard...! I'll kill you!
Hehe, we got hopes for winning, it's nice
So this is the enemy's headquarters.... it's time for a raid.
Isn't this to be expected?
Strong, and also cool. Did I get more fans~?
I couldn't win... again....

Huh? Horsekeeping? What are you saying?
Damn horse...Are you making fun of me?
Well, it is true that my previous master was born from a farmer family, still this kind of thing is rather...
I did what I had to do. You have no complaints now, right?
Because it's just sparring, I can't use real killing techniques. What to do?
Without things like blinding and grappling, it's not really gonna be good practice, don't you think?
