BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger

Part 57: Haku-Men: Story 04

Yep, Hakumen is Jin. We got it, game.


Seriously, we know.

I am the white void. I am the cold steel. I am the just sword. With blade in hand shall I reap the sins of this world, and cleanse it in the fires of destruction. My past incarnation is no exception!
I am Hakumen. The end has come.

Of all the things you could possibly choose to explain you choose to shove this one down our throats? Really?

Turtle all day every day. Jin has better air stuff, but getting in on Hakumen is a little harder for him. His projectiles are also kind of slow and can easily be cut. This is a match where Hakumen can just play to his strength, wait for a lot of meter, and then go in for damage.

Because I couldn't find a good video of a good Hakumen fighting Jin, you can have this video of Spark and Walljumpman playing a mirror match. Spark happens to be the guy who won Evo 2011's BlazBlue tournament.


Begone, apparition. I have conquered my doubts.

Finally... it has begun...

And now we're here, in the actual world.

I've been waiting. Took you long enough.
You are the one called Kokonoe.
Don't bother playing nice. We aren't gonna be friends. Fact is, I don't like you that much.
Then why have you summoned me, demon?
I need your body--the Susano'o unit--for one of my assignments. Just your body, really. I'd dump the rest of you back into the Boundary if I could. But, I don't have what it takes to pull you out of the Susano'o, so I need your help.
Do you truly believe I would heed your request?

No. Why the hell do you think I don't like you? Ah well. I'm not here to boss you around anyway. All I need you to do is keep on existing. With you around, I'm sure he'll show up sooner or later.
Ah... Then you are in pursuit of Terumi.
You go right ahead and think whatever you want. You aren't getting any sort of explanation from me. ...Oh, one other thing... Don't get in my way. I brought you here, and I can send you right back just as easily. Keep that in mind.
Your plan intrigues me. Very well. I will do as you wish, until the day that he appears before me.
All right... He's probably heading for Kagutsuchi, but... My best chance is probably going to be when I retrieve him there...

I am Hakumen. The end has come.

At this point Hakumen rolls off to Kagatsuchi to kill Ragna for real.

Alright, let's go over this real quick. So we know that Jin becomes Hakumen. At the end of Jin's story you might recall Rachel popping in to ask Jin if he wanted to be a real hero. This means that, most likely, Rachel is responsible for putting him in that sweet armor and then...something. After Jin becomes Hakumen he then would have had to jump back into the past to fight the Black Beast, get stuck in whatever the Edge is, and then get dragged out by Kokonoe to present day.

We'll get more into how everyone else fits in after we finish the next and final character.

I might put his other ending up as a bonus, as it may technically be cannon but also doesn't tell us anything actually interesting.
