Manjimaru is a Third-Year in Sakigake!! Otokojuku, and one of the Lords of Death.
Manjimaru is easily recognizable with his blond mohawk (black in the anime) and a circular mask over his nose and mouth, from which he can fire needles at his opponent. In addition to his Otokojuku uniform, he wears a metal breastplate and wrist armor. He has a thin mustache under his mask.
In his days as a disciple of the Evil Spirits Fist, Manjimaru was bald and dressed in the black pants and shoes of a Chinese martial arts student.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Manjimaru practices the Evil Spirits Fist (魍魎拳, Mouryouken), one of the most feared assassination styles in the history of Chinese kung-fu. From this style he has used the following techniques:
Heated Dance Hard Killing Stab (烈舞硬殺指, Retsubu Kousatsushi): A full-handed stab powerful enough to destroy J's Magnum Steel knuckle duster.
Ten-Body Illusion (幻瞑十身剥, Genmyo Jusshinhaku): Manjimaru moves so fast that it appears like there are ten of him. Later retconned to the Duplicate Body Illusion (幻瞑分身剥, Genmyo Bunshinhaku) technique, where he can make a maximum of five duplicates.
Hair Axe (龔髪斧, Chouhatsufu): A bladed boomerang that Manjimaru keeps hidden in his mohawk. He occasionally throws it normally, but also can use the following techniques:
- Hair Axe Infinite Return (龔髪斧無限還, Chouhatsufu Mugenkan): The Hair Axe circles around infinitely until it hits its target.
- Hair Axe Great Curve (龔髪斧大旋曲, Chouhatsufu Daisenkyoku): The Hair Axe circles in a large trajectory and attacks the target from an unexpected direction.
