|Recca is a teenager who is obsessed with ninja, not knowing he is one himself. Being a descendant of the leading line of the Hokage, Recca has the ability to create Fire. A son of a fireworks manufacturer, he sometimes employs small incendiary devices or smoke bombs in combination with his elemental power to distract his enemies. Recca is quick to test his strength and is especially persistent when defending his love, Yanagi Sakoshita. Recca may be cocky and overconfident but manages to save his friends due to his ninja skills. Recca's flame power differs fundamentally from that of his allies and enemies in that it is innate to his being and thus does not require the use of an elemental item. He, however wears a Tekko or armband, to control his flame power. He will be burned by his own flame if he removes it. Recca must train his body to with stand his flame without the Tekko before he can use his real flame power. He has eight Karyu or Flame Dragons. These Flame Dragons are the spirits of Recca's ancestors and flame masters of the past. The names of the Flame Dragons are Saiha, Nadare, Homura, Setsuna, Madoka, Rui, Koku and Resshin. Every one of the Flame Dragons have their own personalities and powers. They lent Recca their powers whenever he needs it. Before Recca could use their powers, He must prove to them that he deserves to be their master. He acquired the 7 Flame Dragons except Resshin, the 8th Flame Dragon. Resshin is actually the spirit of Recca and Kurei's biological father, Oka. In the manga, eventually he achieved Resshin's power.|
|1st||Nadare||Dan En, Fire Ball||The first of Recca's Flame Dragons to submit. She's used relatively often, and creates fireballs.||2nd||Saiha||En Jin, Fire Blade (flame foundation: Falcon)||The second to be tamed, Saiha creates a blade which can cut through nearly anything.||3rd||Homura||Ben En, Fire Whip / Strength (flame foundation: Snake)||Recca's third Flame Dragon to submit. He is a strength-enhancing flame. Recca uses this Dragon usually around his fist, or as a whip. When Recca uses the flame Dragon around his hand and arm, his flame takes the shape of the Dragon and he strikes the enemy with his fist. This attack is one of Recca's strongest moves.||4th||Setsuna||Shun En, Fire Flash / Fire Spray||A very bitter, very angry Flame Dragon. It is the Fourth to submit to Recca. Setsuna will burn anyone who looks into his eye; otherwise, he is blind. Genjuro attempted to steal him from Recca. He is a flash of fire so intense it will burn anything it is aimed at into ashes.||5th||Madoka||Kekkai En, Fire Barrier (flame foundation: Turtle)||The fifth of Recca's Flame Dragons to submit. He is the 'king of the impenetrable barrier' and seems to be a relatively nice dragon, although he's just as arrogant as the others are. But he has a pleasant, kindly voice. Recca can also use the barrier around his enemy to prevent them from moving or killing themself.||6th||Rui||Gen En, Fire Illusion||The sixth Flame Dragon, a Dragon of Illusion, who bestows her powers on those who answer her quiz. Then, she makes illusions which the Flame Master thinks up into reality.||7th||Koku||Hadö En, Fire Beam||The seventh Flame Dragon, who appears as an ecchi little old man with a scar over one eye. He steals Recca's six dragons before his fight with Kurei, and teaches him how to properly combine multiple dragons into one attack, a blast of fire. He tends to appear in human form more frequently than the others, and seems to have some kind of friendship with Resshin. He is known as the pervert of all the dragons. When Recca uses Koku, he comes out and shoots a huge beam of fire through his mouth. This is Recca's second strongest technique. In the Ura Bato Satsujin, Raiha said if Kurei got hit by one of those, he'd be knocked out cold.||8th||Resshin/Oka||Unknown, In the manga he transforms the dead into living flames like Kurenai (flame foundation: Phoenix)||The eighth Flame Dragon. He is the spirit of Recca and Kurei's biological father, and is neutral in the final fight between Kurei and Recca. While he lends his assistance to his sons when they fight against Mori Koran's clone, he does not give his powers to either. Resshin absorbs souls and turns them into Recca's flame.|
By the way... the title of the currently playing song is ZUTTO KIMINO SOBADE by YUKI MASUDA, i lab di song!!
One day, while walking in the park after going home from school, Recca witnessed several punks harassing a fragile girl named Yanagi Sakoshita. Recca immediately rescued her, but beforehand, he had his fireworks confiscated by Shigeo. As a result, Recca was knocked unconscious. He dreamt about a princess looking like Yanagi thanking him. When he woke up, they finally introduced each other and Yanagi revealed her healing power. Soon, Recca made up his mind and suddenly made Yanagi his 'master', calling her 'Hime'. He took her into an abandoned building and revealed his secret power: creating flame (which he got from his birth as the son of the Hokage Flame Master). Soon, Kagero appeared in front of them, taking a new name as 'Kage Hoshi'. She pretended to be hostile with Recca and caused harm to both him and Yanagi, saying that only Recca's flame can kill her. After seeing that Recca was so devoted to Yanagi, Kage Hoshi let them go. Recca later would have to deal with his former rivals, Domon and especially Fuko, who was quite surprised that he easily made Yanagi his master without her even putting up a fight. Fuko went off a bit extreme and attempted to attack Yanagi. However, Recca defeats her and said that he chose Yanagi as his master because 'she fits my imagination as a princess'. Later Fuko went missing, but suddenly she called him to come at night to school. It turned out that Kage Hoshi manipulated Fuko and gave her madogu Fujin, which she easily mastered. Domon later came to help and Recca managed to snap Fuko back to her senses, after tearing her clothes, being punched by Domon and Fuko and called a 'dirty rat' by Yanagi. But just when he was about to vent his anger on Kage Hoshi, she purposely cut her own neck. But she survived, revealing that she's immortal. She also gave hint about her relation with Recca, that she's his family member. However, at the moment, Recca dismissed it. Soon, Recca's friendship with Yanagi, Fuko and Domon started to develop, and the latter two acknowledged that Yanagi is Recca's rightful master. Recca also found out that Yanagi works part time as a comic artist to entertain kindergarten children. However, he soon met his senior Tokiya Mikagami, who told him to stay away from Yanagi. As they argued, Mikagami revealed his madogu, the Water Sword Ensui. Recca was defeated and Mikagami stated that if he cared about Yanagi, he should stay away from her. Distraught, Recca did as Mikagami said and distanced himself from Yanagi, losing his usual spirit. Fuko and Domon later convinced Recca to apologize to Yanagi, and he got back to his senses. He confronted Mikagami in the Mirror House inside an amusement park. Using his battle instinct, he managed to trick and defeat Mikagami. He later made a vow to commit seppuku in case he failed to protect Yanagi, but Mikagami dismissed it, as he'll kill Recca himself in case such thing happened.
Recca, Fuko and Domon headed to Kurei mansion and fought their way to Kurei's chamber. Along the way, Mikagami returned and joined their fight. Recca showed his anger by easily dispatching Mokuren. However, the four of them couldn't hold a candle against Kurei and his flame, Kurenai. Kage Hoshi arrived and advised Recca to remove his Tekko. He did so and unleashed his flame within him : the 8 Karyu/Flame Dragons. He offered his arm for their help and their leader, Resshin, agreed with the offer, knocking Kurei out. Kurei later retreated, and the mansion crumbled. But they were successful to save Yanagi and Tatesako.
Recca later went into a training session, attempting to fight the dragons himself and have them acknowledge his strength and accept him as their master. He gained the trust of Saiha and Nadare, and later he competed in the Ura Buto Satsujin, invited by Kurei. Recca's first battle was against Saicho from Team Ku, master of the madogu of Paper, Shikigami. Saicho lost due to heart failures, but Recca challenged the team captain Kukai anyway, dissatisfied with his victory. Kukai went berserk after being hit 3 times on the head, almost killing Recca. Eventually, Recca came out victorious, also gaining the trust of the third Karyu, Homura. In the next round, Koganei defected from the Uruha and joined Recca's team. Recca himself fought Sakura Meno, an innocent girl who became victim to genetical experiment, her body being planted with the Hair madogu Shikigami by one of Kurei's Uruha Jyushinshu, Genjuro. Recca managed to win his match and solved Meno's problem. He later challenged Genjuro and almost got his dragons stolen. However, Genjuro accidentally angered one of the dragons, Setsuna. The dragon mercilessly burned Genjuro and suddenly allied itself with Recca. Before the following round, Recca was caught into an argument with Mikagami, thinking that he got too close on Yanagi, sparking a tension. The tension remained until the day of fight. Their opponent, Neon of Uruha Jyushinshu, managed to get Recca to agree to fight on a double bout against her and her sister, Miki. The tension between him and Mikagami hindered their performance and almost got them killed, but Domon reminded them the importance of teamwork at cost of losing one winning point. Recca started fighting as a team and was gaining the upper hand. In a desperate moment, Neon activated her ultimate technique, Requiem, to blow up the whole stadium. Mikagami stopped the attack, but risked to kill Neon. In a desperation and unable to withstand having to see Neon's sisters lament on her loss, Recca managed to invoke the fifth Karyu, Madoka. With his barrier, he saved Neon's life.
Later, a fellow calling himself Joker invited him to watch a battle in the other round, in which another Jyushinshu called Jisho was participating. Out of his and Neon's prediction, Jisho ended up being killed by his opponent Magensha, who will later lead his team to fight Recca's in the semifinals. Receiving madogu Kotodama from Aki (Neon's other sister), Recca attempted to break Kagero's curse, but failed. In the semifinal, Recca fought against copy ninja Kashamaru, who surprised him with his ability to copy the Karyu. But with the help of the new Karyu, Rui, he defeated Kashamaru. After Magensha thrown Fuko into another dimension, Recca went off searching for her, only to find that there was another Magensha attacking Yanagi. Recca experimented the usage of two dragons at once and saved Yanagi. However, he found out that the Magensha he was fighting was another person, and the real Magensha was somewhere else. Indirectly, by doing this, Recca helped Domon win his match against Magensha. He later had a brief fight with Kurei, but they both walked away. During the break before the finals, Recca heard of an old man giving advices to his allies. The old man revealed that Recca would lose and he would need to seek him in order to win. In the next day, the old man and Neon forced him to listen to the past of Kurei, learning the origin of Kurenai and how it was simply wrong to label him as 'monster'. After Kagero told him that giving him mercy would just bring death, Recca was rather confused, although he still took Neon's words in heart. However, he later heard of a commotion. He found out that Joker was one of the Jyushinshu and betrayed them by injuring Saicho. Luckily Saicho was still alive. However, after Domon won his initial match against Noroi, the old man forced Recca to come with him by disabling his dragons. Recca was taken to 'the world within himself' and learnt that he must kept on living as a ninja. He later fought against his dragons in their human forms in order to get their trust back (except Setsuna, who he had to force to get into his body again). The old man revealed that he's the seventh dragon, Koku. Recca fought and managed to 'tame' him. Recca came just in time to fight his official battle against Kurei. They were both quite equal on terms of strength and power, however, in the end, after a very harsh fight, Recca came out victorious. He admitted that he carried the big burden to cure his mother's immortality, and if he died failing to protect Yanagi, he'll be doomed to be the 9th dragon. However, during the fight, Recca caught a glimpse of a more human Kurei.
Recca managed to outwit Fumimaru in the Sealed Cavern, with the help from Kagero. He almost lost hope after learning that Mikagami fell into the enemy captivity, Domon and Fuko rumored to be dead. However, Domon resurfaced, and this resulted the rescue of Mikagami. However, Recca was defeated by Kirin, and knocked unconscious. When he woke up, Domon already defeated Kirin. Moving on, Recca faced off Rasen and his madogu that was capable of erasing anything, Kokai Gyoku, in which he lost his mother due to it. Fuko resurfaced with the help of another Jyushinshu, Raiha. In the same time, Recca reminded Rasen on the value of mother. Eventually, Rasen gave in and forfeited.
Facing off Mori Koran and his 'daughter' Renge, Recca was soon asked by Tendo Jigoku if he wanted power. He refused and attempted to destroy it. Out of his prediction, the madogu also refused him and chose Mori as his master. Recca fought the monstrosity for awhile, and told everyone to escape, except Fuko who refused. After witnessing the murder of Fuko's friend, Hisui, Recca went into a fit of rage. It was at that time suddenly Kurei resurfaced and indirectly helped Recca, even though both were still uneasy on each other. Recca learnt that Tendo Jigoku was still after Yanagi, but he made sure that he would protect her. Along with Fuko and Kurei, he escaped the cavern. Upon resurfacing, Kurei left the entourage, fighting on his own way.
