Kamaitachi

The competitors will be dropped onto a standard running track, tasked with completing a three lap race around the track’s entirety. Awaiting the competitors on the track, however, are the Kamaitachi, three identical sickle wielding weasels that ride the air and chop the legs off of competitors who fail to leap over their hurdles. Victory is attained by completing three laps with one’s legs still attached to their body.

'Hanbei didn't think it would be so easy as a race‘

Moving from the lounge room Hanbei was taken to a hall with a couple of other people. One of the few advantages that Hanbei had in the Namahage festival was that she already had a pretty keen eye when it came to Yokai, Hanbei knew most of them save for some of the rarer breeds and had already taken precautions on dealing with some of the nastier ones, Kappa being one of them, Kamaitachi, thanks to the news from Nozomi, being another, and since the fall in the last event that Hanbei had been a part of, dealing with Jurogumo was something that she had also prepared for. Buying simple things like cucumbers, meat and notably in this instance, an old calendar that had been wrapped up and kept in Hanbei's clothing for this instance exactly.

The issue with the Kamaitachi or the Kazekama, was that they were faster than the wind, meaning that there was almost no means for ninja as slow as each of them to avoid the blades were they not prepared. So, as they felt the falling black out sensation that they had before and appeared at the racing track, Yokai and spirits cheering from the stands as each of the competitors were instructed to line up. Hanbei rolled up the old calendar and held it in his hand like a sword as he would ready himself for the race. The way that Hanbei saw it, if the weasels near each hurdle didn't focus on him, they would route to the other competitors, each of them being hit with an additional ludicrously quick weasel. Combined, the weasels would take down each of them one by one, ganging up more and more and more until by the last lap, there would be only Hanbei...

'It was time to put the plan to the test.'

'BANG!‘

Without any sense of warning the race was on, Hanbei rushed off as quick as he could, each of the other runners seemed to be a little faster than he was, they had trained for this, though, as they ran around the outside of the track, they came up to the first hurdle. Light winds whipping around it as the slight hissing sound of a blade could be heard in the distance. That was certainly the kamaitachi. The first person who was running picked up speed for the hurdle, jumping with ease nice and low to keep his momentum, but too low too late. With a swish his legs were gone as soon as he hit the ground, showing all of the other unknowing competitors what they were really running against. The victim however, didn't cry out in pain. Pain was not a symptom of being hit by a kamaitachi, the wounds never bled and the wounds didn't cause pain. Though it was one hell of a shock to the person who had been cut by them...

Most of the next competitors avoided the hurdles with some relative ease, save for some near misses that caused some scrapes. Though, many of them jumped so high that they slowed down a considerable sum in order to avoid the weasels that guarded their hurdles. Though, sure enough, Hanbei came to his, coming closer and closer holding his makeshift baton. The weasel preparing to cut before he retreated to another lane, not wanting to be a part of the ninja that had born the item known to ward him and his kind he moved one lane over to one of the other living competitors. Hanbei smiled, the fact that he was lagging in behind a little bit though gaining on one of the others due to his ability to make a much shorter jump, literally making a minimalist vault over them and begin sprinting back in the direction of the next one. Gaining and even beginning to surpass some of the other ninja in the back.

'Time would only tell how the plan moved as they moved into the second lap.'

'as the second lap came in, the plan came into full swing.‘

Hanbei had misplaced 3 kamaitachi, and coming into this round, there would be only more. Three competitors fell to the ganging up kamaitachi who would then spread out into the other lanes yet again, meaning that there were now 6 that lay misplaced in among the other rows, it was a cunning plan but now, Hanbei actually had to begin to run in case there weren't many others that would fall to the increased numbers. Activating one of his burst jutsu he would hammer it, speeding up more and more as he would bound like a machine in the direction of the next set of hurdles, each and every one of them warded from the weasels as the boy continued to run, passing a couople of his competitors now coming in second. Until finally, the third lap came...


in the end, employing this plan, there were only 2 ninja that managed to finish in general, Hanbei and another competitor who had taken things far more carefully than the others and used defensive barriers to hold off the blades. Congratulating each other, it seemed that calenders from this point on would be banned from the race...
