Like the name implies, this is a list of all the Kyotouryuu (Swordless Style) techniques/stances that make their appearances in the anime Katanagatari.
The techniques are categorized according to which episodes they appear in, and are not repeated, but are only listed for their first appearances.
Descriptions of the techniques are how I have interpreted them after watching the anime, and are more or less correct.

Anyway, the reason I did this was mostly because when Katanagatari came out, there wasn't a list of the moves, and I wanted to have them for reference, so I made the list myself, and only now decided to post it, since I'm a fan of the anime iteration of Katanagatari.

-Disclaimer-
I do not own Katanagatari.

The Light novel iteration of Katanagatari belongs to:
Nishio Isin (Writer)
Take (Illustrator)
Kodansha (Publisher)


The TV anime iteration of Katanagatari belongs to:

If enough force in the right places is applied, possibly. I mean, how do you think people are able to karate chop bricks in half when on-paper that shouldn't be possible?

One nice list :) it got pretty much all of them from what i can see just one quick comment

Episode 7
-Kyotouryuu "Red Poppy" and "Daphne" Hybrid Striking Technique-.....

with that isnt it Kyotouryuu Red poppy To Daphne, which implys that there might be some other technique used inbetween. And also Shichika's sister (name escapes me) only uses the Ninpou Ashigaru to negate the weight of the blows against shichika so she doesnt kill him it makes no refrence to her body weight in general

The wording was just based on where I watched it, since I saw it on gogoanime.com. It may've been different from where you saw it.
Also, from my perspective, she negated the weight so she actually could move that fast.

NewMystery356 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2011
I think because of its lack of exposure that I had to do it first. Still, I'm pretty fond of that, but I won't put it on wikipedia, because then anyone could just come on there and edit it out of how I want it.
The way I see it, while it's on DeviantArt, only I will be able to toggle with it.

Glad I finally got a compliment.
Surprisingly enough, it's been a full year since the beginning of Katanagatari, and over 4 months since the series ended, yet no one took the time to compile a list like this.

P.S.
Mind if I ask what you intend to use it for, since that's what I figured when you said "Thanks for This"?

You're very welcome.
Honestly, I was surprised about the lack, or to be more precise,
non-existence of comments, because I'm betting making the list
took some serious time and focus.

Yeah, it's a bummer nobody seemed to REALLY notice this awesome series.
Maybe because of it's lack of filler episodes? /sarcasm

Anyway, congratulations on a job well done.

What for?
....
Well, feel free to laugh, but since your descriptions were so detailed,
a crazy idea of trying these moves for real crept in my mind.
I wonder if it's at all possible, though. Some of them, maybe.
But they probably require tremendous skill, which I, being a yellow-belt, most likely don't possess. remains to be seen, I guess.

Ps. Judging by your icon, you a Mega Man fan, too?
Reply
:iconnewmystery356:
NewMystery356 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2011
Yep. Played MegaMan Zero 1-4, ZX, and ZXA.
As for the Kyotouryuu moves, I figure incorporating the stances into a fighting style wouldn't be too hard, but executing them on that scale would be.
As for me, I'm in the process of writing a Naruto/Katanagatari FanFic, and that's why I compiled the list of moves through every episode.

I see. I've played MegaMan X Command Mission,
and am currently playing MegaMan Starforce 2 Zerker x Saurian.

Good luck on your fic.
If you publish it here, I'll give it a read.

I've actually played X: Command Mission as well. I even used the GBA attachment thing to find the little bonuses, thought that's more of a sidequest than a story-related thing.
I've also played and beaten Ryuusei no Rockman 3: Black Ace, specializing in blade-type weapons. I was especially adept at getting Noise Forme.

P.S.
If you want to read my fic, there's a link to my FanFiction profile on my DeviantArt profile page.

...Damn, do I feel out of my league now.
"If you play, play properly", huh?
Oh well, I play games for the plots and fun, mostly,
so I can't really say I'm a highly skilled player like you.
...Doesn't mean I utterly suck, though.
Basically, in almost any game, gimme a blade,
and after a few stumbles, I can kick major ass.

About fic: Ok, got it memorized.

That doesn't mean you suck, it just means our video game fortes lie differently.
Personally 1st-person shooters were never my thing (Halo, etc.) I'm more into adventure and role-playing games.
