Weapon Story


 Level 1


The craftsman's weapons were neither flashy nor attractive, but they never once failed in battle. This reliability afforded him a never-ending stream of loyal clients."


 Level 2


Yet something nagged at the craftsman. Though he'd forged many a weapon, he'd only tested them on pigs and cows. He wondered what it might feel like to use them on another human being."


 Level 3


The craftsman took a sword to a battlefield and slashed at corpses, disappointed at how easily the sword slid through them. It wasn't satisfying at all. He wanted to really feel like he was ripping through flesh."


 Level 4


The craftsman modified a sword in search of that feeling, not thinking at all of the pain it would cause—until one night, a bandit broke into his home and snatched the weapon up, and showed him exactly how effective it was."

      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.
