If anything else, Akane was a good student, when she was still alive she generally managed to keep good grades and this trend continued at the Shinigami Academy. Though she was never considered a 'prodigy' in any sense of the word, she was always trying her hardest. It was showing here too it would seem, she was catching on fairly quickly from the looks of things despite the niggling little voice in her head. Beaming happily at her success, she felt ready to try by herself and it seemed Kairi agreed with her on this regard.

With this new found encouragement, the girl took position once more before the barriers. It was going to take all her focus, but she was determined to succeed this time. It would probably seem elementary to those around them, but she was taking rather large strides today. Mentally prepared, she takes aim at her target. "Bakudo Number Four: Byakurai!" It happened in an instant this time, as soon as she finished speaking, the bolt of lightning from her fingertips shattering the first barrier, only to dissipate. It was close, but the second barrier wasn't touched!

"Yes!" She exclaimed in glee, though she promptly covered her mouth from the excitement with a blush. Clearly embarrassed at the outburst, but in a few minutes she had managed to make incredible improvement!

"Very good, Akane." Kairi clapped lightly for the young Shinigami, who was progressing much faster than anticipated. "Can you feel your reiatsu? You're not wearing the bracelets right now, but it feels like you are. That's your control, and that's how it's progressing. You can still wear them, of course, and they'll still supress more of it, but you don't need to anymore."

Kairi thought for a moment on how to continue training Akane. They'd only been here for ten or fifteen minutes, so there was still plenty of the day to do training. There were two major options she came up with; teach her more kidou, and have her control them as effectively, or erect the barriers closer together so Akane could better refine her control. Unable to decide between the two, she proposed the options to Akane herself:

"We've got two options now," she began, stretching lightly, "We can continue refining your control with Byakurai, by placing the barriers closer together, or we can move on and see what your limits with Kidou are, then push past them." Removing the second and third barriers, as they'd be replaced soon, Kairi placed her hands on her hips and watched Akane quizzically. "Which would you prefer?"

Akane hadn't even noticed it really, but now it had been pointed out it was like a weight had been lifted from her shoulders! She had some time before she would be able to perfect this though, she could still feel it there, waiting to try and overcome her new found control, but maybe one day soon it wouldn't be a problem at all. The girl couldn't wait, but for now there was more to do. "Thank you so much! I never thought I'd be able to make it this far" She nods, bowing once more.

It seemed though that their training wasn't quite over yet! They had more to do and Akane was surprisingly keen to continue. What more could they do though? Despite the advances that she had made, she felt like more complicated spells she might still be limited. Her control hadn't advanced that much yet.

But she was given an option, which was something she would need to seriously think over here. "Oh, well... uhm" Akane seemed to be mulling it over, she was leaning towards the former really. She wanted to learn control. It was only then that Arashi decided to speak up 'more power, you need more power' she demanded. Which was surprising enough to force the girl on her position.

"I'd like to learn more, find my limits" she nodded, seeming convinced she was making the right choice.

Akane seemed to think for a few moments about which of the two she wanted to do. It was a big decision to make; either learn more control over her reiatsu and her ability with efficiently casting lower levels of Hadou, or be able to cast the higher levels at all let alone effectively. Efficiency over effectivity, or effectivity over efficiency? It wasn't a decision to be made lightly, and Kairi was well aware of it. Not many people had her balance of the two, at least not at such a high level.

Kairi Alexstrasza was the Kidou Corps Commander for a reason, after all.

While Akane made her decision, Kairi began to think about what her Zanpakutou Spirit was like; would they have any sway in the choice? Before she could put too much thought into that, it seemed like Akane had made up her mind, with small nods as if convincing herself it was the right choice. She wanted to push her limits, and had decided on effectivity over efficiency; it was a valid choice, but then again both of them were. Either way she had leaned, it was likely that both of them would end up occurring soon if not today.

"Alright, if that's what you want. You need to show me the highest level Hadou you can cast, and we'll work from there." Kairi's voice was affectionate, almost like a sister as she watched Akane. In such a short time she'd already improved so much, it was impossible to know how much she'd change and improve over the next few years.

Akane nods to her instructor, stepping back into place. Still mulling it over in her head, unsure if this was truly the path she wanted to follow. It was too late now though, the girl had made her decision and would have to live with it. Little did she know just how much sway the spirit of her blade seemed to have on her, other shinigami may have tried to subjugate their zanpakuto but in this case that relationship seemed to be turned over on it's head.

Seeing as the barriers had been taken away, she thought back to her days at the academy. The strongest hadou that she knew she could cast was a fairly standard one among most Shinigami. She had pulled it off a few times, but had decided against focusing on the art. She wished she had taken a little more time mastering it now.

She calmed her nerves as best she could, hands shaking just a touch as she clasped them together and began her incantation.

"Ye lord! Mask of blood and flesh, all creation, flutter of wings, ye who bears the name of Man! Inferno and pandemonium, the sea barrier surges, march on to the south! Hadō Number 31. Shakkahō!"


Akane's hands parted mid-way through the incantation, red reiatsu sparking and crackling over her hands as two dense spheres in either palm. For a moment they seemed fairly stable, but quickly began to grow in size, the girl's crushing spiritual pressure overwhelming her. She managed to cast the spell off into the sky as she was pressed backwards by the force, tripping as she did so, ending up landing with a gasp. She quickly picked herself up, blushing furiously as she looked down to her hands. They were smoking slightly, with light burns over her palms. "S-sorry, I should have started lower..."

Akane had given it her all. Her incantation was perfect, her hands had gathered the reiatsu and she was doing well, until her reiatsu started to pour out too strongly and the Soukatsui was fired off into the sky as she tripped and landed with a gasp. Her hands were smoking lightly and had very minor burns as she apologized, but Kairi shook her head.

"No, that was good. Very good, in fact. You were able to cast the Soukatsui well, but you lost focus." Placing her hands in Akane's, Kairi quickly healed the burns; being Commander of the Kidou Corps meant she knew how to use all kinds of Kidou, even medical. It wasn't anywhere near what Squad 4 could do, but it was enough to take care of these tiny burns. "Are you ready to try again?"

Focusing her reiatsu in her hands, Kairi manipulated the flow of Akane's once more, this time simply limiting it to what it was at shortly before it flared off; this time, though, she only held it there for a few moments before pulling her hands away. Kairi wanted Akane to know the feeling of limiting her reiatsu, and to make her do it herself.

Akane looked down to her hands, the stinging slowly subsiding to a dull but constant pain, worse if she tried to move them. She couldn't remember making such a scene in the academy, nothing that explosive. Her shikai had boosted her already considerable power even further and it seemed she wasn't quite used to it yet. Though she seemed to perk up just a little when Kairi praised the attempt. Once again, brimming with a sort of new found confidence, she nodded.

With her hands fully healed, the girl went through the technique in her head, taking careful note of how her instructor was showing her to control her reiatsu this time. "Alright, ready!" She seems obtimistic this time, more so than the last at least.

Again, she recited the incantation perfectly as she gathered the power she needed into her palms. The crackling red energy condensing as it did before. For a moment, the spheres began to bloat out with power. It almost looked as if she hadn't restrained them and lost control. 'Focus' it snapped the girl back into reality for a moment. With the energy gathered in her palms stopped growing, condensing for a moment before she pushed them forwards to release the beams.

It was an impressive sight, the red energy tearing through the air and off into the distance. Akane blinked, looking at her hands "It worked!" They were still crackling slightly, the gold colour of her reiatsu sparking from her palms.

Akane was definitely paying attention to how her reiatsu felt, which was a huge improvement all its' own. A lot of times, there were Shinigami who had graduated the academy that didn't actually know what their reiatsu felt like and didn't know how to control it to any degree; sometimes, it was due to Akane's case where they simply had so much that controlling it was impossible, but more often it was just a lack of understanding. The fundamentals of reiatsu were where the control shined, and kidou was a perfect way to practice it.

As Akane proceeded to cast Soukatsui again, the spheres began to bloat once more but she seemed to grasp it at the last moment, restraining them and releasing the Hadou correctly. Clapping her hands, Kairi smiled as Akane cheered herself on, her hands not quite burned but sparking with reiatsu. They were definitely warm, though, and still crackling.

"That was very good, Akane. You're coming along quite nicely, and you may develop a fan or two." Kairi glanced past Akane to the group of Shinigami watching the two of them; while most had started because the Commander herself was tutoring Akane, it was obvious that they were now mostly focusing on Akane herself. "Time to start getting it under control, now."

Walking about ten feet away, Kairi erected another three barriers; the first two would shatter on impact, but the third was much, much stronger and wouldn't break under normal circumstance. Holding her hand up, Kairi fired off a Soukatsui which bursted through the first barrier and immediately stopped, similar to the Byakurai from before. Erecting the barrier once more, she turned to Akane.

"You know what to do."

It felt good to succeed, it had been such a long time now since Akane felt she had made any real progress and finally it was coming to her! She couldn't have asked for a better teacher really, Kairi was understanding of her troubles and seemingly knowledgeable on how to fix it. Maybe she could really make something of herself! The crackling energy from her palms would slowly subside, returning back to normal. The girl looks over to Kairi, reacting quite well to the praise it would seem, it only made her more eager to learn more! And if she was getting Arashi's help too now... well, she wouldn't be telling anyone, but it could only be good!

Though only now did she notice that the people who had gathered around to watch this training session were still here, eyes not on the commander now though, at least not all of them. Some were watching her now. The thought of it made her a little nervous, what were they expecting of her really? She clearly wasn't sure she was ready for fans... The training came first however, the people falling by the wayside once more.

They were back to the barrier, hoping to hone her control further still now. She stepped into position once more. "Alright..." She looked focused at least, raising a clasped hands together, she began her incantation, breathing steadily as the red orbs of energy sparked to life in her palms. With what she hoped would be a restrained spell, she attacked the barriers. Though this time she didn't even get close as the two beams blasted their way spectacularly through all three, causing some would be 'fans' having to jump out of the way. "O-oh... I'm so sorry! Please forgive me!" She bowed swiftly to those students who were picking themselves up, that confidence almost immediately swept aside.

Okay, that, she did not anticipate.

The Soukatsui broke through the first barrier before it had even hit it; that alone should have told Kairi something was wrong. As it crashed into and shattered the second barrier, Kairi nodded briefly figuring that would happen, but then it shattered through the third barrier as well. Raising her eyebrow lightly, Kairi threw up her hand and made a larger barrier which took the Soukatsui without breaking, then dismantled it as she turned to Akane.

"Well that was impressive, Akane." Kairi began to erect the barriers again, this time reinforcing the third one, though she didn't expect it to get hit again. Akane was learning so quickly that this time, she'd probably only barely break through the second one. "Did your Zanpakutou not help you out that time?" As her shoulders shrugged lightly, she smiled to the young girl. It was obvious her Zanpakutou was influencing her, but only because Kairi was experienced with that sort of thing. "Don't worry too much about it. I'm sure you'll pick up on it quickly. Try again."

Crossing her arms, Kairi watched Akane closely to see how she reacted, and what she did this time.
