Communication based abilities invented by Dr. Fukurou Tsurubami with the purpose to fight on par with skill users.


Styles achieve their effects through manipulating of Japanese language. Styles are meant to be drawn from understanding the feeling of others and are therefore useless against targets who become frenzied. Stylist or Language Users are able to transfer their styles temporarily to other people. All Language Users have tattoos on their tongues in kanji related to the type of style they use. If the user has multiple styles the tattoo changes depending on the style. Skilled Language Users can manipulate vibrations in order to continue blood flow if their hearts somehow manages to get destroyed.

List of Styles

Most Language Users are women of the Kurokami Branch families that were trained by Dr. Fukurou. The exception is Kamome Tsurubami who developed his own separately.
