I was just memeing. I don't know why Mai said that. Even if Mai is way more skilled, there's no reason to say that Hiyori doesn't know swordsmanship after performing a bunch of sword techniques against her peers.

May be her style is a bad match to Mai?
That's not what Mai says. She literally told her she has no skills.

In any case, if she can't beat Mai she's got no business fighting Kaname.

Time for world-building info.

Toji [Sword user] - The Miko who brandish Okatana. Can only be female. By manifesting the spirits of the Okatana in themselves, they draw out their power and suppress the Aradama. Most of them are students who haven't yet reached adulthood and study in specialised schools, honing their skills, all while fulfilling their police duties.

Okatana [Venerable sword] - Japanese-style swords made from a rare metal with divine properties - jewel steel. Can be used by the Toji, and only them, to call upon various powers from a different dimension called the Hidden Realm. The only weapon capable of taking down the Aradama.

Noro - the impurities that are removed in the refinement of jewel steel. As they possess divine qualities, they are virtually indestructible by normal means and are treated with utmost care. If Noro is allowed to agglomerate, it will form into an Aradama and bring disasters upon the world. To prevent that, since times immemorial it has been split into small quantities and then placed as offerings in forests around the country.

Aradama [Raging soul] - also called ghosts, spirits and youkai. Their true nature is Noro agglomerated into a pseudo-living creature. fucking Mushi Depending on the amount and properties of the Noro, the disasters they bring are different. The Miko wielding Okatana are capable of cutting down and exorcising them.

Gokaden - The collective name of the five middle-to-high specialised sword schools in Japan. Kanagawa's Renpu Girls' Academy, Gifu's Minoseki Academy, Kyoto's Ayanokouji Martial Arts School, Nara's Heijou Institute and Okayama's Osafune Girls' Academy. Under the control of the specialised sword administration bureau. Is tasked not only with training of the Toji themselves, but ot their support personnel as well.

Special Ritual Riot Squad - A troop belonging to the Special Sword Administration Bureau of the National Police Agency. Wield the special swords known as the Okatana and have permission to use them at their own discretion. They hold a special position in government service, and a lot of them are females that haven't yet reached adulthood. Special Ritual Riot Squad is the official name of the troop, but it's commonly called simply "The Toji", and sometimes, with gratitude, "our Toji".

The Tragedy of Sagami Bay - The worst Aradama-caused tragedy in history which happened 20 years prior in September of 1998. An incident that occured on the coast of Sagami Bay led to large amounts of Noro being leaked into the sea, which formed into the largest Aradama ever observed. The Aradama landed on the coast and headed north, causing large-scale damage to the city of Fujisawa, which resulted in over 3000 casualties. Through cooperation of the SRRS and the Self-Defence Force the Aradama was driven to Enoshima. Thanks to the efforts of the select few elites of the SRRS, it was successfully subjugated. Following the event, the aforementioned six elites were labeled heroes.

Utsushi [Duplicate] - One of the Toji's most basic fighting skills, and their strongest defensive ability. Using the Okatana as an intermediary, one's physical body is transformed into a body of energy. While Utsushi is active, all damage the real body would've taken takes form of pain and mental fatigue. Receiving a blow to a part of a body will make that part vanish and its function be lost, but one's real body will take no damage while it is active.

Justin Fisher

Jin'i [Swift move] - An offensive skill of the Toji. Using the Okatana as an intermediary, one departs from the normal flow of time and accelerates. The Hidden Realm is made up of multiple layers, with each one having flow of time faster than the previous one. Thus, the deeper one delves, the more effective their Jin'i becomes. Those with a lot of training can reach the deeper, faster layers.

the names of okatana and fighting styles of the 11 known characters.

Kanami = Chidori/Yagyu Shinkage-Ryu
Hiyori = Kogarasumaru/Kashima Shinto-Ryu
Mai = Magoroku Kanemoto/Hokushin Itto-Ryu
Sayaka = Myoho Muramasa/Onoha Itto-Ryu
Kaoru = Nenekirimaru/Yakumaru Jigen-Ryu
Ellen = Echizen Yasutsugu/Taisha-Ryu
Yukari = Okanehira and Dojigiri Yasutsuna/Niten Ichi-Ryu

analysis
toji-no-miko.wikia.com/wiki/Analysis:_National_Swordsmanship_Tournament

Kaoru and her massive sword, for example, uses the fighting style Yakumaru Jigen-Ryu (as with other Jigen-Ryu styles) that focuses on the ONE BIG STRIKE. Apparently in Golden Kamuy, one character warns another to NEVER try to parry a strike from a Jigen-Ryu practitioner, else one would receive two swords on its head.
Kanami's style focuses on reading enemy movements and outwinning them on each clash. This would explain why Sayaka lost; she kept on engaging Kanami, allowing Sayaka to be "read". The episode would also show Kanami's immense insight, recognizing fighting styles just by seeing one kata on display.
Mai's style, Hokushin Itto-Ryu, has a principle where "a perfect technique should contain defense and offense in one action". Kanami attested to this, noting that Mai's Seigan (the basic combat stance) was unbreakable. Mai also attempted this on Kanami using the seiza position, forcing Kanami to attack instead of respond with Mai preparing for a defense strat—alas, she lost because Kanami was simply too knowledgeable about Mai's combat style.
Hiyori is quite formidable with her Kashima Shinto-Ryu, which is based on practical responses to combat since the style was developed with strong influences to the Warring States Period. Hiyori finds weak points and WILL use them to her advantage.
Ellen's style, Taisha-ryu suits uneven terrain since it was designed that way (practical combat techniques), and one notable trait is having a low stance compared to other styles. That's probably why Hiyori attacked from such a low angle.

Xavier Hernandez

Mai is just shit-talking to make Hiyori lose her composure. Hiyori is skilled. Mai couldn't even see one of Hiyori's special techniques since she moved so fast. In contrast, Kanami could see it, but just barely.

Isaac Diaz
Isaac Diaz

Isn't this just headcanon from the wikia? What's next, stuff from tvtropes?

Nicholas Cooper
Nicholas Cooper

Well, Kanami style shine in clashes so Mai forced her to attack rather than fighting her like Sayaka in the tournament. So Mai is good at controlling the pace at least.

So I assume she ended up exaggerating a bit as a shit talk.

Adrian Mitchell
Adrian Mitchell

I don't think so. Mai's assessment that Hiyori's too straightforward and easy to read seemed on point. She's just fast which is why Mai couldn't see her moves and such. But she lacks skill so Mai still can kick her ass.

Owen Ortiz
Owen Ortiz

It's a fan analysis. At least the person doing it knows Japanese.

Samuel Nguyen

aka headcanon

Anthony Anderson
Anthony Anderson

That isn't because Hiyori is not skilled. Mai's style is just a bad match to Hiyori's, that's all. Mai spars with Kanami so she has a lot of practice and has honed her stance to be defensive as fuck.

Michael Adams
Michael Adams

They need to stop using so much CG. It looks like shit.

David Sanders

My headcanon is that Mai is the strongest, but she can't face Kanami because gay.

Mai saying Hiyori has no skill still doesn't make sense. Even if she can beat Hiyori blindfolded, that doesn't negate knows how to fight.

Mai's shcocked expressions whenever Kanami 1-ups her easily destroys that headcanon.

Austin Barnes

How is she going to beat Hiyori when she can't even see her till the latter already decapitated her.

Owen Gutierrez
Owen Gutierrez

That isn't because Hiyori is not skilled.
Are we going to ignore the fact Mai literally says she's lacking skill? I know you think she's bluffing but you can't prove that.

Christopher Moore
Christopher Moore

Read the manga. Mai really tries her best and hates that Kanami keeps beating her.

Caleb Brown
Caleb Brown

Why didn't Hiyori use this technique? Mai had Utsushi so it's not like she'll experience fatal wounds.

Caleb Richardson
Caleb Richardson

It's not like Hiyori doesn't know shit. She just doesn't know enough to fight at Mai's level.

Angel Phillips
Angel Phillips

She's super fast but not very experienced with sword duels.

She got Kogarasumaru just recently.

She beat first girl by pure speed. She beat Eren by baiting her and using superior speed.

Colton Evans
Colton Evans

Are you going to ignore the fact that Hiyori not only represented her school in the tournament, made it to the finale and had Kanami gushing over her techniques?

Jaxson Gutierrez
Jaxson Gutierrez

With superior skills. Besides Hiyori is easy to read so Mai can predict her moves.

Kevin Mitchell

So Hiyori looks exciting as first glance but she is a one trick pony?

Brayden Brooks

Benjamin Cox

No, so I'm gonna wait for the show to give an explanation instead of assuming something I can't prove like you're doing.

Luis Wright
Luis Wright

You can have all the skill you want but if she's jamming a sword in your gut before you can blink it's not going to matter. She couldn't even keep up with Kanami who could only barely see Hiyori move.

Cooper Turner
Cooper Turner

Not even the elite guards were able to block her. It took Yukari herself to parry before the tomboy could butt in.

Wyatt Reyes
Wyatt Reyes

This show told us more about japanese swords and fencing styles than swordboys through years of their existence. I love it.

Henry Williams
Henry Williams

She was shit-talking, dude. At the best you could argue she was being overly critical of Hiyori techniques since she has bad affinity to Mai's stance.

Hiyori wasn't at peak condition, so maybe that's why. She said she only covered a bit from the night before. Or maybe she didn't want tor reveal one of her hidden techniques.

That's debatable.

Jackson Anderson
Jackson Anderson

People already died in first episode. People died in big fight 20 years ago and humans lost there while they think they won. It seems like Kanami and Hiyori both lost mothers.

It's pretty fucking serious already.

Christian Barnes

Sorry, I mean intercept.

Nicholas Kelly

Hiyori is probably bad with the sword itself but very good with the miko superpowers.

Dylan Lewis

I can't wait until the mobage comes out so I can waste all my time trying to reroll for the genki gaijin just to stop playing the shitty game a couple days later.

Common sense, dude. It's not like you can prove what Mai said is true, anyways.

Landon Lopez
Landon Lopez

Strike Witches also did that. Better CGI than slideshow fights.

Jack Russell
Jack Russell

Not even the elite guards were able to block her
They weren't in front on her attack and she is pretty fucking fast. No one's arguing that. But she's also easy to read and in a one on one fight with an highly skilled opponent like Mai or Kanami she's gonna get her ass handed to her.

Jackson Sanchez
Jackson Sanchez

Hiyori's profile disagrees with Mai.

Saori Ōnishi as Hiyori Jūjō, a third-year student in the middle school section of Hiragi Gakukan. She is 14 years old. Her sword is Kogarasumaru. She is serious, cool, and stoic. She has the strongest sense of responsibility among the Toji, and once she decides on something, she doesn't bend. Her sword skills center on speed, and even among the Toji, her skills are among the best.

Mason Ramirez
Mason Ramirez

Common sense, dude.
We're talking anime, user. Common sense goes out of the window most of the time.

Ryan Sanchez
Ryan Sanchez

She's not very experienced. Principal cake said she got her sword just recently so Origamis were not even informed yet.

Jack Bennett
Jack Bennett

That's just another reason to NOT read the manga.

Ryder Brooks
Ryder Brooks

You can predict an attack all you want but if you aren't fast enough to parry it predicting it is completely useless.

Grayson Gonzalez
Grayson Gonzalez

We would have to see what it actually says in Japanese though. I do get that she's based on speed. But Mai didn't deny this. She was basically saying all that speed would not beat her because Hiyori's easy to read.

Robert Bennett
Robert Bennett

What type of sword was she using before Kogarasumaru?

Gavin Turner
Gavin Turner

I think that's a different. Hiyori probably has trained for a long time since young since her mother was a Toji too based on hinted flashbacks and foreshadowing. However, the Okatana that Hiyori has is something she recently acquired.

Brayden Allen
Brayden Allen

You get time to react if you can predict it. It's not like Hiyori is a lot faster than the others. She's just got an edge.

Sebastian Edwards

Brody Ward

Thing is Kanami is even more skilled and knowledgeable about fighting techniques than Mai. If Hiyori can't beat Mai she doesn't stand a chance against Kanami. Kanami's gonna read her like an open book and kick her ass in 3 seconds flat.

Matthew Peterson
Matthew Peterson

Honestly, the show so far slides towards realism. So common sense isn't completely absent. We can predict and speculate a lot of things because we can apply common sense and use real-world comparisons. Granted, this is an anime with school girls, so it won't be super serious and strict, but we can still expect something like an assassination to have serious consequences and the fact it's a crime.

Ryan James

Mason Roberts
Mason Roberts

Let's get down to it. Kanami is the MC and she's OP. She's a sword mania who is knowledgeable about all kinds of stances, techniques, and swords. She beats Mai all the time since they became friends. And she's still fast enough to see HIyori's tachi and Yukari draw her Okatana and saw what HIyori saw.

On the flip side, Kanami recognized that Mai's seigan stance is difficult to penetrate, so Mai isn't a pushover. Mai betted everything on the iai stance and lost because Kanami is just too knowledgeable about Mai and the stance she used.

William Bennett
William Bennett

Yes, but how does that dismiss Hiyori's skill w/the sword?

Easton Ramirez
Easton Ramirez

Upper hand? I think you need to re-watch it. They were more or less even and this is with Hiyori who hasn't fully recovered. Mai intervened because she wanted to, not because Hiyori was going to lose or get hurt.

Hiyori was putting up a defensive fight because she couldn't find holes in Mai's defense. It's not exactly upper hand that would lead to a lose. For all we know, Hiyori could shift stance and focus on speed to blitz Mai had they continued on for a bit longer.

Does anyone know exactly what Mai was saying in that sentance? I don't think she was outright calling her bad at fighting.

Nathaniel Lee
Nathaniel Lee

Considering even the dumb Gaijin was able to block her, Mai's criticism of Hiyori probably does have some truth to it. I mean if Gaijin girl can block her then so can the elite 4. As another user all of them are sufficiently fast when in glowy mode.

Luis Ramirez

That's because Kanami isn't as predictable as Hiyori. Mai called Hiyori straightforward, which probably means her attacks all comes from the same direction or something like that. If that's the case, that's a huge weakness even if she's pretty fast.

If you can predict your opponent's moves you don't have to wait until you see the attack to start your counter move. You gain a fraction of second that gives you an advantage. You don't have to be faster.

And that's on the assumption that A is only going to attack one spot. There are any number of spots Hiyori could shoot for. Face, neck, arms, legs, chest etc.

Lucas King
Lucas King

If your attack consist of left-to-right slashes and every time you fight that's the ONLY thing you ever did, your opponent doesn't need to be faster or stronger than you to beat you.

Charles Brown
Charles Brown

your opponent doesn't need to be faster

When the opponent is so fast you can't see them or process their attack yes you do.

Chase Reed
Chase Reed

It's also on the assumption that A is so fast that B doesn't have time to guard, which clearly wasn't the case in the fight.

Colton Sullivan
Colton Sullivan

Because Hiyori didn't use that super fast jin'i.

Adrian Torres

going on a date without knowing someone's name
Why is this allowed?

Justin Brooks
Justin Brooks

It depends on how much you're able to predict. If you know A is going for the face B can guard right before A starts moving. It helps that guarding requires a simpler and more compact movement than attacking.

Hiyori is fast, but not fast enough than being predictable wouldn't be a weakness.

Gabriel Gutierrez
Gabriel Gutierrez

Even if Mai was right that doesn't mean she would certainly win.

Christopher Taylor
Christopher Taylor

I think if they fight now Mai would win. I think we're supposed to take Mai's claim that Hiyori's lacking experience seriously. She has to get stronger.

John Thompson

It's not, good thing they're not dating.

Oliver Hughes

VERY EXCITED

Robert Stewart
Robert Stewart

Yeah and that doesn't work with what we've seen so far. We've seen nothing to show that Hiyori lacked skill, if anything she's the one that's pulled off the most impressive shit. We've seen her pull of feints and and move with speed that only the hero and main villain can even register.

What she's saying and what they're showing us don't match and if we want to believe Mai at all she needs to do something beyond lose herself.

Jacob Sanchez

Luis Hernandez
Luis Hernandez

Since they revealed the twist in the second episode, I bet the actual twist will be that Origami is actually in control and is using the power of the Aradama for whatever reason. Which will most likely be either using the power of the enemy to defeat the enemy or using it so that she herself can gain power.

Jace Young

I was thinking Hiyori since she's the one with the apparent grudge and might be easy to corrupt or whatever, but Kanami would also work. One of them's definitely getting turned, though, so they can have that match they're talking about.

Wait a second, that sound from the spectrum meter.
It's the almost same as when they met for the first time.

Lucas Evans

implying an ojou-sama like Mai would lie

She fights with Kanami on a very regular basis. She's probably top class herself and a good judge of skill. Hiyori's power just lies with her teleports behind you level speed.

Daniel Miller
Daniel Miller

That would explain her reaction, ready to unsheathe her sword and all.

Jordan Myers
Jordan Myers

Hiyori's profile literally says her skills are among the best. Maybe Mai believes what she's saying, but they don't have to be true.

Luke Richardson
Luke Richardson

The manga seemed to suggest that it was the swords reacting towards eachother and the president of one of the schools hinted at that the two swords have some connection with eachother.
So most likely the swords they are using now have some kind of history with eachother. So the similar sound might be because of that their weapons are somehow connected to the monsters they fight, which that one manga page claimed.

Tyler Moore

I bet only analog spectrum although unprecise, can detect humanoid aradama.

What's the point of having the fight sooner if Kanami would just beat her in a few seconds? Maybe if it's at the end Hiyori will have the chance to get a little better.

Aiden Gutierrez

OF COURSE IT'S A MISDIRECT! But there's still the greater issues of how long has it been going on and just how deep does this rabbit hole go? Is she actually a monster or just possessed by one? Did she die in the war? Will they be able to save her if she's just being puppeted? How aware is she of her own possession if that's the case?

revealing one major bombshell and answering one big question only opened up a shit load of other questions.

Oliver Morris
Oliver Morris

Yeah, there is a lot going for this plot right now. We could end up with a mega Toji civil war, which would be fascinating. My only issue with the show so far was how damned poorly written the second episode was. Kanami doesn't want to reveal why she helped Hiyori, but waits until Mai conveniently and easily tracks them down (despite none of the other authorities being able to) to tell everybody the truth. It is a little too plot convenient, or more aptly, pacing convenient, because they didn't want to put the "stinger" in until the end. I'm loving the concept, plot, and the style as described by others here so far, but that second episode was brutally bad writing. Or just, disappointing, I guess. I was expecting a bit more urgency from the writer, I guess.

Ian Phillips
Ian Phillips

conveniently and easily tracks them down (despite none of the other authorities being able to)
She did kind of get a direct phone call from her.

Logically the government would be monitoring Mai's phone due to her relationship with a suspect, that's why they called her in for questioning in the first place after all.

Jayden Adams

It's not like phones of all friends suddenly get recorded, if they had reason to suspect Mai maybe but she didn't have a clue and she's only a friend rather than any close relative. And this is if they can start an instant web of phone tapping surveillance.

Thomas Jackson
Thomas Jackson

The only thing I can think of is that Origami was trying to keep things on the down-low, keeping it an internal matter. Considering the reveal, it makes a bit of sense. Regardless, Mai found them way too fast. I can buy that Mai knew what city she was in because of the overheard broadcast and could even have phone calls made to her traced, but to know they went into a particular hotel? That's a bit much.

Angel Bennett
Angel Bennett

She probably found the payphone, and then she just found the hotel that was closest to it.

Adam Garcia
Adam Garcia

I agree that it's a bit fast but maybe it was broadcasted in a small area at that exact time and from there it was only a matter of searching for hotels in that area.

Nathan Rivera

Why even look for a hotel? Kanami never mentioned she was staying in one. I guess it could be a logical leap, and I admit I'm nitpicking a bit, but it still bugged me. If they'd have done a five second shot of Mai asking around, maybe the convenience store guy where Kanami bought the bentos, or something. Meh.

Leo Howard
Leo Howard

Why look for a hotel

Where else are they going to sleep? a cheap hotel is a pretty normal place to be while on the run.

Connor Mitchell
Connor Mitchell

Netcafes are a lot cheaper. They supposed to be on the run with low money. The priority should be food. And Tokyo supposed to have a lot of abandoned houses in the agglomerations so why not go there instead? They really didn't think this whole escape thing.

Alexander Torres
Alexander Torres

Hiyori even mentions later other options (netcafe, etc), which is why I'm nitpicking. It seems like the author was almost pointing out why he wrote the wrong thing. While I know these girls may not be the most streetwise or experienced in criminal behavior (putting on some hoodies and putting the swords in GITAH cases), they still had other options. I'll just let it go seeing as how I'm enjoying this overall.

Hunter Carter
Hunter Carter

This is Sayaka Itomi's style, Onoha Itto-ryu.
There are only two techniques: Hitotsu-gachi and Kiriotoshi. "It begins with kiriotoshi, and ends with kiriotoshi." All other moves originate from kiriotoshi, thus "one sword gives rise to ten thousand swords".

She only took other options once they were found out after staying in the hotel. Logically, they should stay at more comfortable locations first to recover their strength faster while the option to do so is still there.

Liam Wilson
Liam Wilson

literally stated in the episode that the Administration would be able to find Kanami with ease if she had her phone with her

Connor Myers
Connor Myers

Their phones have the Aradama tracking app, which probably communicates with a central server controlled by the government and thus can be tracked by them. That's different from wiretapping.

Aaron Parker

It did irk me a bit that she had 4 sword but was only carrying two sheaths.
I blame Hiyori's legs for distracting me.

Owen Murphy

They learned from the announcement that the girls were somewhere near the border of the Taito and Arakawa wards, and since it was late in the evening they probably didn't move much further. It's not like Mai and her boys had to search the entire city.

Ian Morales

It's almost as if she's just trying to force Mai to retreat instead of killing her.

Kayden Kelly
