Kojiroh Sanada


Kojiroh is captain of the Shinsengumi Unit Zero, a group that investigated demonic forces in Japan and follows the code of Bushido. Six months before the events of Last Blade 2, their investigation into Hell's Gate became Keiichiro's solo mission; and at this time, escaped from their number. Many of them were lost in the battle with the crazed Shikyo, and the Zero Squad came to question their purpose. But the Hell's Gate investigations had to be carried out. And so Kojiroh travels to Hell's Gate, to restore the Zero Unit's faith in themselves, and to defeat the crazed one who slipped through their fingers. Some fans believe that Kojirou is loosely based on Okita Souji from Rurouni Kenshin.

While not particularly an exciting or vibrant design, visually... when put up against similar 2D fighting game characters, a " traditional" samurai design like Kojiroh is likeable in many ways - especially for those into Japanese history / samurai buffs. I've read "official" storylines of this character that claimed Kojiroh is a "female" and others that claim Kojiroh is a male. So I'm labeling this one ambiguous.  (Considering The Last Blade's roster, I think the design would be cooler as a female.)

In any case, Kojiroh definitely has cool moves and animations. She highlights some of the great aspects of The Last Blade series. Interestingly, Kojiroh looks to have bought her top layer kimono from the same store Haohmaru shops at! On that note, they'd make a cool duo in a tag-team fighting game.
