Powers and Abilities

Sara-Kazoe manipulating plates

Plate Manipulation: Sara-Kazoe is able to control plates, making them float in the air and use them to attack her targets. She and the plates gain a pink aura while she attacks her targets. Her range is quite wide, being able to gather a city's worth of plates from her location.[1]

Plate Transformation: Sara-Kazoe is able to turn her lower half into a stack of plates.[1]

  • Plate Transmutation: She is also able to turn others into plates as well, each having a pattern or coloration that matches them.[1]

Plate Whirlwind:


Sara-Kazoe was recorded in Konjaku Gazu Zoku Hyakki as a horror and tragic tale of a young woman. This was likely based on more famous Banchō Sarayashiki, featuring haunting spirit of Okiku or Okiku-Mushi.

Her change in facial expression to an ogre-like one with anger is presumably based on Hannnya in Kabuki or Jōruri where both of above tales are famous plays for.
