@Manami: I'd them for ages (Notice the pre-reboot ones) and I had to upload them to make some space in my PC
@kashif1: Golem is out of combat (As she lost her weapons) Tengu is standing in the air and Vampire is once again in the top of a building
@paladin: Cool, you're going to get targetted in almost any thread that includes one of my character and Daisuke, that the bad news....
The Good news is that I have a link to Japanese Ancestral weapons so you can take your pick easiliy, in fact you can choose any of the spears or sword in any legend as your character isnt japanese (Except Tonbogiri, Tadakatsu Honda Weapon, as the Guardian of the Crest of Will can summon that)
Only of this world, not of fictional worlds
And try to not pick an Infinity +1 Sword
@paladin: The War of the Crest is pretty much like the Holy Grail War, the reward is a wish granted by the one that made the Crests, yet nobody won since the Sengoku era as this battle repeats every 30-40 years so the families involved are too cautious to go all out, or sometimes they find out that the Crest Guardian doesnt wants to get the wish the family wants and they kill him...

@UsachanMaN: It's a long story to tell, and unluckly I'm a very busy man. It wasnt clear if he talked about his drive or the woman, either way he had a note of sadness in his voice. Usso kept paiting in long strokes, and using short strokes of just stabs to make some details...
Panther rushed the enemies, as she was overcame by bloodlust. Fragments of her rational mind drifted inside her brain, as pieces of glass falling to an endless void. Each of the shards of memory of the young assasain told a story. The day she first had any knowledge of her situation and surroundings after waking up in the laboratory slab, the day she met the other experiments that lived in the same lab. The seemingly infinite hours of torture, humilliation and degradation she locked deep inside her subconscious, to avoid facing the horrible things she was submitted by the men in the lab. All that repressed sorrow, anger, fear and hate, was what Vampire activated in her, forcing her real strenght to come out, and destroying her happy-go-lucky attitude, replacing it with pure predatory drive and instinct. Under that horrible mask of anger, Panther suffered, her silent cry was unheard for almost everyone in the battleground, but her surrogate father, a monster greater than anybody else in the Numbers, was the only that could feel the 5th Number sorrow, and for it, his sorrow was even greater. Vampire was in a crossroad, let his daughter live, retire and hope to mantain whatever humanity he had inside him, or let her die as sacrifice to defeat the current targets and regain his mortality. In one hand he would be a monster, but he would have a daugther and a chance of redemption, in the other he will loose her daugther, but regain the mortality he longed for. As he saw how Daisuke was trying to stop the Panther Lunge, with all his might, and failing, his mind was filled with the memories of a younger and mortal version of himself, that many years ago participated in a heated battle just as the Red Headed Magus was doing in the moment. This images were the only thing left of his mortal time, only fading pictures of better times. In the other hand he saw her daughter shrugged face, with the radiant wings surrounding her. In the five years he had known her, the sometimes dumb, yet caring girl made his inmortal life a little less boring, and a little more joyful. The weight of his decision was too much, he could still de-activate the nanites before the impact, giving her enough time to avoid the still moving diamond bits.
The moment of collision was near and in that split second Vampire made his choice. I'm a monster, the 2nd Number looked at his bluish claw-looking hands, but I can be human again... for a second he looked at her daughter, he looked at her with her eyes full of light, almost like human, and after that small speck of time their lost that light forever, showing no emotion, no anger, no sadness, no hapiness... nothing ...so be it.. he whispered from himself, as her daughter bashed between both opponents and the diamond wings tagged both, sending the pair to the ground with multiple wounds. The one with the gun seemed okay, at least not mortally wounded, but the one with the lance that was caught talking got heavily injured. Vampire eyes were cold, finally abandoning any tie he had with his humanity, as watched how Panther got slashed by the wings. Multiple wounds opened her black fur and torrents of blood sliced muscle fibers and guts fell under her with a grotesque wet sounds. Golem was visibly disgusted, Tengu remained serene, without giving any kind of reaction, Vampire face seemed to be carved in stone, without any kind of reaction whatsoever to the massive and gory ammount of damage received by his daughter. Panther staggered to stay standing, as her back left leg was almost completly gone. Her front legs were mostly undamaged, and the other back leg was fine. Deep cuts that opened from her tail to her neck oozed blood and organ fluids, and her breathing was getting sluggish. Still her face showed the brutal grin of a feral predator, and her actions backed it up as she took once again a pouncing position to attack. The diamond nanites started swirling around her like a radiant apparition or ghost, that announced death for the pair of young heroes. Once again, this time around just a tad bit slower she charged foward, looking to end what she started, while Vampire looked at her with emotionless eyes. When she landed after the Lounge, she was destroyed by the diamatine cloud that followed her, torned into bloody bits...
To avoid any suspiction Kuro-san used a vehicle instead of a teleporting all the way to U.S. The portal took him and his bodyguards to his private airport and from there they started flying in the experimental new commercial plane GaryuuTECH was developing. It wouldnt hit the market for five years, but it was less strange that suddenly popping out in the other side of the world. Meanwhile his troops in all the parts of the world were working as their orders told them, recollecting each and every piece of Kisekian technology, removing their bodies and the bodies of the people that managed to put up a fight and died. Everything was shipped towards ShinkaLABS, so the Mad Genius, Shishido Hakase can research everything and turn them into strenghts for Mangetsu. Kuro-san was having a pleasant flight, as he was currently in a win-win situation, either the heroes won, and his plans went in motion, or maybe Shinma won and he would be to weakened to face some of Mangetsu aces, or maybe Falken and his Yamato could help. The possibilities were limitless, but Kuro-san was more inclined to allow the first scenario rather than the second, as fighting Shinma and the remaining Kisekian forces would be something bothersome to say the least. For that purpose his troops were issued with a little bit of useful technology created by Shishido in secret, as most of the high tier Kisekians, including Newdeath come from their eyes, the Mad Genius of Mangetsu decided to give a trial run of a nervous system scrambler, most specificaly the nerves that allow the information from the eyes to reach the brain. A minor discomfort, but surely useful to such enemies.
In Japan Tsukimori-san was left in charge of the operations of sweeping and the Numbers Handling. Falken completed his mission and gave the crystal that empowered the Black Kaiser Armor to the operatives in charge of taking it too Shishido for a proper experimentation. They also took the owner, Batsu Nagare, as his DNA was the key to starting the armor, and as intelligent as The Sadomasochist Scientist was, he wouldnt be able to jumpstart it without the key. Even so Shishido made a bet, if he managed to acomplish the feat without using Nagare's DNA, Kuro had to convince Zella Thorn to spend the night with him, or at least to get her to pummel him with a suitcase, or use a whip on him while being tied. Even the Yakuza Emperor, emotionless by rule felt some discomfort after hearing the ramblings of Shishido. The plane would reach destiny in just two more hours, Usso only needed to stay alive for the rest of this mess, then he would really get to work on his own goal, the prize that eluded him for so many years, since it was taken from him in one stormy winter night, back in Kyoto. His inner ramblings were interrupted when a communication of the Saotome Labs informed that they took control of the facility, but the most dangerous man there, Ichigan Nagare, Batsu's grandfather, aptly nicknamed the Predator of Mountains, as his training 50 years ago destroyed a mountain range in Mongolia and almost caused international issues. The other information was that one the top killers, Juro Fuuma, that leaded the attack to the Labs was missing, and somebody saw him leave towards Kyoto...
@Newdeath: I'm not complaing about having an non-anime character as basis, I'm complaining in how you use them. And I still mantain that sooner or later when Raseri gets depowered you're going to forsake him and change to more powerful character, the whole point of the reboot was to go to a street level or at least character unable to trash everyone and everything, but both of your characters where multiple times more powerful than any other character, and still all your roster is possibly able of beat most of the other characters with ease. The stadistics tell me that you cant/wont/Dont play with character not stronger than half of the rest of the world, thus my theory about you dumping Raseri as soon as you get bored on not inspiring awe, amazement or fear to all the rest of the active players is quite valid
