Special Sub-Topic: Flame of Recca
|What was the main character's name?|
Recca Hanabishi. He was a 16-year-old high school student. His grades were all as bad as his 2 friends, Fuuko and Domon. He desperately wanted to be a ninja, so he picked Yanagi Sakoshita as his master. Then the whole adventure began.
|Rekka no Honoo's the real Japanese name for the manga.|
True. The 'Rekka no Honoo' name is sometimes mispelled as 'Rekka no Honou'. The creator of this manga is Anzai Nobuyuki. There are some Manga Scanslations in English for this manga. You'll have to search with Yahoo, though.
|Who was Recca's childhood friend who owned Fujin?|
Fuuko Kirisawa. She was the owner of Fuujin (Meaning: The Wind God) and able to control the 'Wind' Element. She was a 16-years-old girl who preferred to fight than study. In the Urabutou Satsujin tournament, she met a person who held the encounter of Fuujin, which was called Raijin (Thunder God). The person was one of Kurei's men: Raiha. He was a Jyusshinshu.
|Who was the 'bishounen' character in the story?|
Tokiya Mikagami. Of course! Since Tokiya (most called him Mikagami) looked feminine, everyone thought he was a girl. Tokiya owned Ensui, the Water Sword. He had a revenge on Kai (who had the encounter weapon of Ensui: Hyuma En sword-the Ice Sword), for he thought Kai kiled his sister, Mifuyu. But in his fight with Kai, the hooded guy revealed the truth: Meguri Kyoza (Tokiya and Kai's sword teacher) was ACTUALLY the one who killed Mifuyu! But in the late books, Meguri explained that Kurei's men murdered her.
Recca called this boy a 'vampire'. Tokiya was a cold and very genius boy; he was a year older than Recca and the others.
|Who was Kagerou (Kagehoshi)?|
Recca's immortal mother. Kagerou couldn't die, since she was an immortal. Recca met her in the first book. Kagerou had the immortal curse in her body for using the Jikuuryuuri (A forbidden spell, which caused whover using it would become an immortal) to move Recca to 400 years later for avoiding the Hokage war. She convinced Fuuko and Tokiya to battle Recca, with a reason that Recca had to improve his skills in order to defeat Kurei. In the end of the story, her curse was removed by an Uruha, Rasen.
|Kirin (Rasen's partner) used what madougu?|
Shingan. Rasen's voice was taken by his own madougu: Koukai Gyoku (Meaning: The Shining Crystal), which also made his mother disappeared. So he needed a partner who was able to read his mind, which happened to be Kirin. Taishaku Kaiten was Joker's which he used to change the gravitation, while Bakuju was Noroi's madougu and mask. Kirin also had another weapon: Houkishin.
|Who was Domon's opponent on the final of the Urabutou Satsujin tournament: Hokage vs. Uruha Kurenai?|
Noroi. Domon fought Noroi, a faceless warrior who depended his strength on the evil mask he wore on his face, Bakuju. Noroi had actually died long, long ago; but summoned by Kurei with the reason that Noroi was very useful to be one of the Uruha Jyusshinshu (10 Gods, consisted of: Raiha, Neon, Jishou (died), Genjurou (died), Noroi (died), Mikoto (died in late volumes), Kai (died), Rasen, Joker (died in late volumes) and the strongest- Meguri Kyoza. Then Joker fought Koganei; Kurei's opponent was Recca; Fuko fought Mikoto; and Kai fought Tokiya.
|Kagura Aoi was a female.|
False. Recca asked this question, "Are you a boy or a girl?" and Aoi answered that 'he' was a boy.
|Who was the leader of Uruha Rai?|
Raiha. Raijin (The Thunder God) was Raiha's weapon, which was the opposite to Fuujin (as I've explained in question no 3); Kurei led the Uruha Kurenai team; Recca was the leader of Hokage team. Uruha Rai's team member was only Raiha. None other.
|How did Recca beat Kurei?|
By punching him. This may surprise you, but it was true. When Recca tried to burn him by Koku (the 7th Flame Dragon), Kurei defeated it with his flames, Jishou and Kurenai. After hours, Recca and Kurei argued. Recca and Kurei wasted so many powers & times, until the stadium was ruined. In the end of the final, Recca shouted, "I will protect my Hime (Princess)!" With his final blow (which was the terrifying stage of all), Kurei was defeated. As a promise before Recca and Kurei fight, Kurei made a vow that if he was beaten, he would never show his face to Recca again. And he did.
