Only good for a light sword where high speed precise swing is more important, not good for parrying for sure, which mean disadvantage in full frontal battle. Yukihira is SUPPOSED to be used like this, as indicated with it's shorter length than standard Katana.

Katana's are easier to use one-handed due to their design and thin center of gravity. Regular swords, on the other hand, can be quite a bitch to swing around.

Side note - Making a draft

Exactly how the style is developed, try parrying using that and wept for your broken sword afterwards.

Hence why they're used with shields:/ Bastard swords can break through, but you'd be hard pressed to find someone who one hands that.

I mean Katana, which is NOTORIOUSLY fragile unless using very high grade steel WITH an infamous blacksmith in work. I have once seen a gang war where someone try to use his bootleg (but still ultra sharp) one to block a golok (asian counterpart of Machette, you might knew it), result is not pretty.

That's why they're light:/ They're meant to strike quickly before an opponent has a chance to put a good defense up. I rarely see anyone block with them apart from Luke from Sacred Blacksmith.

They're also good against silk suit (reduce the damage caused by arrow a LOT) worn by samurai under their armor, and most modern body armor unless you hit the protective plating, yes, that includes bulletproof I.S. outfit.

Breaking Katana is a plot point or two in flashback later in the story

I wonder why Ichika's fighting style never changed even after the shift.

Actually, because of that shift, he never change.

Since his style by default is attack the enemy as soon as he can, then ByakuShiki allow him to move twice as fast. Remember Shift up is not only evolution of frame, but extrapolation of the pilot's own strength.

Izuru forgot it, the end.

I have this plan for 'super mode' of sort for the guys, but I need something for the girls as well. Any ideas? If not, I'll just use the handwave that guys can't use OOA, except Ichika that is.

He didn't forget. Ichika uses the cannon during the V5 intro and training. Did he use it during the Golem attack?

Yes, that oversized gauntlet has 3 modes. Ichika use the shield mode the most, rarely cannon, and the claw... well...

Last I checked it, it can be...

Ranged Weapon
Energy Shield
"Secondary" Melee Weapon

Must be a real energy burner...

@ Eras
Yes, bigger in the novel, hence I said oversized. The anime is large, but fairly normal in comparison.

@ Jak
Yes, it is.

With it being a real energy burner, I can see why Ichika lost to Rin at the start of Vol. 5. Great start to kick off the Volume, Ichika...

Great start...

Reaction mixed because reader expect something else, even though it's genuinely funny.
