Sword techniques

"Sword Art Online: Alicization" has undoubtedly introduced quite imaginative sword techniques, but the latter season of the series has introduced many swordsmanship skills from the Knights Integrators and Eugeo and Kirito. In the last episode, a move was introduced that recalled another very popular anime.

These new swords showed tremendous power, which many reminded of another anime in which sword skills were fundamental and extremely changeable, namely Tee Kubo's Bleach. In the last episode, fans were shown Alice, transformed into an Integral Knight and then an enemy of Kirito and Eugeo. The sword of the Golden Osmanthus Knight, an ancient divine weapon, possesses an ability to create and manipulate the petals of the osmanthus flower to attack.

Obviously, the new technique introduced in the anime recalls the famous Senbonzakura by Byakuya Kuchiki, captain of the Gotei 13 and able to manipulate the cherry petals at will with the Shikai and the Bankai. For now, Alice's abilities have not been fully shown, so fans do not know if the attack radius and the ability to control the petals are the same as the Bleach character, even if the girl is not joking as a destructive force, since she explains how her flowers are capable of destroying rocks and soil.

We remind you that the animated transposition of the anime offers a new episode with dubbing in the original Japanese language. Here is the trailer of the upcoming episode. Stay tuned for more updates.
