Crono & the Hittokiris
« on: January 16, 2007, 10:09:21 am »
Prior the Meiji Era, a group of samurais called Hittokiri (assasin samurai) had been both employed by the Royalist & those who are loyal the Shogun to assasinate important political & military figures.   I'm not saying that Crono is a hittokiri but his swordstyle remind me of a hittokiri that uses similar style that of Crono.   That stance was design to kill so swiftly that there's little time to react (Crono's critical bears a striking resemblance to that swordstyle too.) Although that stance is common but it has one thing in common... To dispatch the enemy swiftly & decisively.

Not to mention the fact that 90% of video-game characters who wield Japanese swords use a similar stance to that one.

And, BTW, Hitokiri is romanized with a single "t", not two.
