"Fine then, well I am going to teach you some basic kendo techniques. I will teach you Shikake Waza techniques and the Oji Waza techniques. The reason I am only teaching you the basic is because you can refine your own style of fighting from the basics." Kaminari explained.

For the next week Kaminari grinded the Oji waza and Shikake waza techniques into Lectro through brutally demonstrating them on him. By the end of the weeek Raikou had also managed to adjust to the electric field Kaminari put on him every day for the past seven days. On this day Kaminari decided it was time for Lectro to do some work on his own and time for Raikou to learn some new things. So as they stood before him he explained what the next step is. "Lectro I am going to give you a basic katana for you to practice the sword techniques I taught you last week with. This week I am going to be working more actively with Raikou." Kaminari then tossed a sheathed basic katana to Lectro and gestured for Lectro to go practice somewhere.
"I am going to teach you how to blend physical combat and electricity. Your projectile attacks we'll work on some other time but to clear a singular bolt at a time is terrible. The reason I had your body adjust its conditioning to rely on your electricity is so that you're not diverting so much power to enhancing your body and to test another theory but we'll discuss that sometime in the future. " Kaminari said.
Raikou replied "But I can already do that?"
"Let me rephrase that, you're going to learn how to do it a better way. We'll start with something you know which is infusing electricity into a weapon. Once you master this you'll be able to apply this principle to your body somewhat." Kaminari shot back.
He drew his sword and began charging it with a subtle voltage of electricity. "Your infusion is inefficient it uses moe power to achieve a lesser result. So practice inducing a subtle almost non visible amount of electricity into your blade. If you look at my sword it's vibrating, one thing you lightning infusion lacked was inducing oscillation in your blade. With oscilation your blade gains sort of chainsaw like properties if you know what a chainsaw is. Now you practice this while I go look in on the other guy."
Raikou drew eisenmeteor and focused trying to fuse a small amount of electricity into it.

A masked swordsman dressed in the colors of the mysterious woman from last week appeared out of nowhere near Lectro sword raised. He said "On Guard!" before he charged forward sword poised to stabbed through Lectro's midsection moving at Peak Human speeds.
The enemy closed the distance between he and Lectro then swung his blade vertically full of vigor as well as covered by a strange aura, Lectro's desperation opened up a moment in which he had the perfect opportunity to strike combined with the vigor of his strike would force Lectro to yield his defense and the aura would deflect the electricity just enough for him to complete his strike.

"Fail!" Kaminari boomed suddenly on the scene and the swordsman about to cut Lectro vanished like an illusion. "Have you learned nothing? You never even reached for you sword. I guess I was expecting too much out of you. It has been a week and you have not made any progress. What do you have to say for yourself." Kaminari lectured.
Meanwhile, Raikou seemed to find a good subttle amount of electricity for his infusion. He made sure this electricity did more then just coat his blade but flowed deep within the blade. Eisenmeteor began to give off a low hum. Raikou looked at a nearby boulder and walked over to it, he held his blade with the edge over the rock. He lowered his blade over the rock and watched as his sword with almost zero effort began to cut into the rock, sparks began to fly as he did this which means not only his blade cuts easier now it has achieved oscillation.
" I thought I was dead!" Lectro yelled. Lectro fell to his knees and began to laugh, "You are evil aren't you?" Lectro yelled. He jumped to his feet quickly. "I have no inspiration man, this training is boring" He said with a frown on his face.
"In a real battle you would have died right there. If your life isn't inspiration enough then clearly you must go seek your inspiration to fight and to get stronger." Kaminari drew one of his blades and said "You need to know why you fight in order to truly do battle."

Kaminari decided he would have to push Lectro if he wished to train him."The only way to forge iron is to tempur in with fire." Kaminari said. Then his sword bursted into golden flame, he moved at Peak Human speeds to close the distance between he and Lectro. He swung his blade unleashing a wave of flame to screen him from Lectro's view. Then he moved to the left side of the flames, this was created a moment in which his opponent in vulnerable. He drew a second sword which he infused with lightning. He exited the screen of flame with the lightning blade forward to deflect any electricity Lectro would give off and then swung at Lectro with his blade of flame aiming for Lectro's chest with the intent to burn in a scar that won't fade for a while.
"I'm used to the heat!" Lectro said as he has a small fiend of lightning around his body. Lectro quickly went into a defensive position with lightning everywhere on his body, he was ready to shock Kaminari this time. "One of us will get hit here captain" Lectro thought to himself.
Kaminari simply used his lightning blade to deflect the electricity and then followed up with a midsection thurst with his fire sword. As he did this he increased his speed to mach1 so that he'd be vastly outspeeding Lectro who was only peak human.

Kaminari then vanished just before he struck Lectro and reappeared several yards away. "Right there you would've been dead. You always try to play defense but your defense is lacking when it comes to a skilled opponent. There has to be some reason as to why you fight so find it, or stay off the battlefield." Kaminari said before leaving.
He went to go check on Raikou's progress. He arrived to see Raikou achieving the goal he layed out for him but with both blades. "Perfect, now we can move onto some enhanced strikes and maybe even a slash projection." Kaminari said.
"Ugh, that general thinks he know everything," Lectro murmured. He decided to go attack the tree that he was resting on earlier, mostly to upset the guard from before. Lectro's mind lit up with excitement as he walked to the tree. "What if Kaminari allowed Alisa to train with me?" He thought to himself.

The Ronin Knight with the bandana was simply watching the regular soldiers drill from a comfortable spot in a tree. First he heard footsteps and then turned to see the kid from earlier. He sighed but did not move from his spot, though his hand hovered over one of his three swords.
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.
Jan 19, 2020 3:00:33 GMT
Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

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.
Jan 19, 2020 22:50:13 GMT
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.
