Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Abilities and SkillsEdit
Swordsmanship: Kanae excels in swordsmanship and is known to be the strongest person in the Swordsmanship Division, she also uses Hayashizaki style's iai. Kazuki stated when it comes to swordsmanship, Kanae is a bit better and skilled than him when she fights seriously.
She can only fight seriously if Kazuki is her opponent. According to her, there is no other way to make her fight at her 100%, even if the world collapses.
- Hayashizaki-style Dream Sword Kasane: Gouging a single scratch on the opponent's defensive magic power with the first stroke, then before new magic power could gush out to fill the scratch, a second returning stroke following perfectly the same trajectory of the first stroke is performed. Allowing this move to do damage to an opponents physical body, making this a potentially fatal attack.
- Hayashizaki-style Dream Sword Shin’iki: A slash with perfect movement in the ultimate timing that not only stops the chanting of magika stigma but also disrupts the magical phenomenon. As a dream sword, it is impossible to use it in real battle as stated by Kanae. When Kanae used it in battle against Hel it was very difficult for her to control the slash to inflict on her enemy. When she accepted Beleth as a sacred treasure sword, she can use Shin’iki many times as she want in battle as long as she can remain focused.
