Kaminari's open eye turn bright blue for a second and right in front of Lectro there was a blackened circle in front of him as if something just struck it. "I did say Lectro came out with the idea." Raikou replied to Lectro mostly so Kaminari wouldn't make a hole in Lectro next. "You two are dismissed!" Kaminari ordered wanting to get them out the way to get to real war planning. Raikou left the tent and stretched outside it, he had nothing else to do until Kaminari called for him to train so he went to go see a squadron practicing battle formations.
Lectro began walking around, observing women as he did. But none of these women were like Alisa, so there was no need for Lectro to flirt. eventually Lectro decided to go rest on a tree. There he began to think about what new power he could get. He continued to think until he eventually fell asleep on the tree.
Over the next few hours Kaminari had a war council with several other Ronin Knights were they discussed future battle plans, targets, and threats. After the meeting adjourned Kaminari requested the other Knights to guide Lectro and Raikou to the training location he marked on the map if they stumbled upon either one.
One of the Ronin Knights noticed Lectro sleeping under the tree he normally occupies. He was the Ronin Knight that wears the bandana but now he clearly had three katana strapped to the rear end of his waist. He pulled out one while it was still sheathed and prodded Lectro with it. "Hey kid, get out my sleeping spot you have somewhere to be." He said. The longer this would take the more force he would apply to the prodding,if it lasted longer than 30 seconds he would wind up and smack Lectro with the sheathed with enough force to send him flying a few feet.
It was Sirius who happened upon Kou. He stood there watching the practicing squadron for a little bit before saying. "You know Kirimura really values the ability to manipulate lightning and electricity because he feels it has lots of potential and room to grow. Remember that as you train with him. That would be now since he asked me to guide you there and I want to see how this all begins."
Raikou looked at Sirius and replied "In other words this training is going to be hell." Sirius gave a look that read 'very likely'.
Lectro woke up to a sheathed katana against his face. He instantly jumped back, "what's the big idea bud" he said. "never mind I don't even want to know", Lectro said as he began to slowly walk away. Lectro eventually spotted Raikou and Sirius talking about something, "Hey guys whats up" he said as he approached them slowly.

The Ronin Knight just shrugged and took his spot under the tree. Kou and Sirius turned to Lectro. "You manner of speak eludes me. The only things up now are the sky, clouds, space, and a few birds." Sirius said not slowing his pace to the appointed training ground. "Nevermind, the answer isn't likely to valuable if it's coming from someone who abandoned their squadron and almost ruined a flanking maneuver on purpose. For now you certainly are a battle hazard. Hope Kirimaru can change that or killed you trying. Either would be fine." He said that last part with a dark emphasis.
Kou thought about saying something to defend Lectro but no words came to mind, he couldn't defend Lectro's actions.
"you wanna take this up with me right here bud" Lectro yelled with an angry tone. "I don't care if you are a ronnin or not, you don't speak down to me like that ever", said Lectro. Lectro lit his arm with lightning, waiting for a response from Sirius.
"I was speaking the truth but anytime you feel you want to have all your mucles slashed and tendons severed you can challenge attempt to take me in actual combat." Sirius said looking at Lectro with his eye under the eye patch. Kou immediately got between the two of them and whispered to Lectro "Calm down, you don't want to do this. Well you do but this could end real badly, you'll silence them about today's events soon enough so for now just bare it."

Raikou followed Lectro the rest of the way to Kaminari. He was waiting in the center of a rocky area a little bit away from the base. He waited for them to come within hearing distance. “Raikou you shall be under going a reeducation in how to use your lightning. Lectro you’ll be a different kind of training.” He said. When he brought up Lectro he gestured to some old beat up samurai training gear.
Lectro's face lit up with excitement. "Woah, I get to be a samurai" he shouted. Lectro stuck his tongue out at Raikou and laughed, "You get the boring stuff, as always". Lectro rushed over to the beat up armor and began rubbing it with deep passion.
Kaminari spoke to Lectro “Take the armor and practice sword all the way over there and practice putting the armor on and getting a grip on the practice sword. Kaminari then waited for Lectro to walk away until he began laying out his plan for Raikou.
“Okay the order in which you learned different skills will hold you back definitely unless you receive proper instruction. Are you self taught or did someone to train you to use your lightning this way?” He said to Kou. Kou replied “I am self taught when it comes to my lightning okay.”
Kaminari nodded before continuing. “Okay you clearly don't move at lightning speed nor does your lightning have the same amount of voltage as the natural stuff as you lack clearly the One Billion volts within natural lightning. But that isn't a problem as you gain skill in lightning manipulation your voltage and speed will increase over time. Now to start you off I need to go back to the basics. You electric generation is clearly lacking but the fact I was able to tell your superhuman conditioning comes from your electricity alone is a problem. So we’re going to start there, you have to improve your strength and speed without your electricity. This will also help in the long run. I am going to seal your lightning temporarily. “
Kou eyes widened before he saw Kaminari put his sword back in its sheath but he never saw him draw it. Kou tried to generate a little electricity in his hand and he couldn't do it. Then he saw Kaminari draw another sword and stabbed it into the ground and suddenly a huge weight fell upon Kou. “Adjust to this and your body will become stronger.” Kaminari explained.
Kaminari then appeared by Lectro. “I am going to teach you how to wield a sword. We’ll start with the basics getting your stance and motions right. If it turns out you know how to use a sword already then we’ll move onto the next subject.”
Lectro picked the katana up and started swinging it around randomly. "I know how to use a sword general" he murmured. "Let me spar with you and I'll show you" Lectro said with his sword pointed at Kaminari.

“Takes more than knowing general ways of the sword to even get close to my level. You’re more than welcome to try though this shall end no better than your lone assault against the enemy battalion today.” Kaminari said. He drew his sword while it was still sheathed since a practice sword is a mere wooden katana this should made it about even. He placed both hands on his sword and took his stance.
Kaminari merely stepped to the right and with the simple speed of sound mach 1 swept his blade to take out Lectro's legs which would be too fast for someone with only Peak Human reactions like Lectro. Simple enough one speed trumped the other and at present there is nothing Lectro can do about that fact.

Kaminari quickly pinned Lectro under his foot. He put his sheathed katana at Lectro's throat and said "Now clearly you need some work, your technique was so basic and it was easy for a faster opponent like me to take you down."
Kou was struggling under the weight of the field Kaminari created. Kou wondered if this field would crush him if he couldn't fight it. Kou was able to stand in this field but luckily his stamina was holding up but that was only for now.

Kaminari disappeared for moment and then was back in a few minutes, holding a few other larger wooden swords. "You're slow but strong for your level so you may find a claymore or something within the greatsword range more to you're liking. So I bring you a choice of claymore, horse cleaver, great kodachi, or just stick with the katana." Kaminari explained.
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
