      Some of these weapon stories feel like they have very little to do with the weapon they are attached to. It feels like some of them were just pre written and then just slapped on to what ever weapons were left

        In Shonen YoRHa, No.3 uses this sword. Though his is... a bit larger LOL. This story reminds me of how No.3 was always striving to be stronger and better than No.4. He fought and fought and was never satisfied, in spite of being very powerful. Then, he dies by a sword too.
