People praised me, saying my swordsmanship was without compare.
I thought so too, as nobody was able to best me. They all asked me to do it because they said I was the only one who could do it, and so I wielded my sword believing that.
They all hailed me as the expert of divine punishment and threw piles of money at me, and I was ecstatic. Anyone who made fun of me before now cowered in fear and opened up the road for me whenever I passed by. That felt good.
My sky was nice and clear.
But eventually, the same folks started to look at me as if I were a dog. They talked about the state of the nation and other complicated stuff to keep me out of the loop. I didn't like that one bit.
My sky was nice and clear, but it had started to cloud.
Eventually I was wandering around the capital all alone. I had no money and I was hungry. Even though my sky was still clear, I didn't want to do anything. I didn't care anymore.
I don't know how and why things ended up like this. I don't know where I made any mistakes. I'm not so smart, so I must've messed up somewhere. No, I must not have made any mistakes from the start. I know I wasn't wrong when I was playing by the riverbed with my mates back in the day.
It's a splendid sky...a sky so perfectly clear.About Me
Izou se muestra como un hombre de cabello largo negro atado en una coleta y cubriendo su ojo derecho. Tiene tez blanca, ojos naranja y en su cara siempre está pintada una sonrisa asesina o de superioridad. Su armamento consiste de dos katanas, con una generalmente enfundada.
Exageradamente jactancioso de sus propias habilidades, Izou tiene una tendencia a menospreciar a los otros espadachines. Un feroz asesino dispuesto a cumplir con cualquier trabajo, Izou es un genio que ve a todos por debajo de él; y aún así es posible notar su comportamiento infantil con problemas sociales y el complejo de inferioridad que no le permite tolerar burlas hacia sí mismo. Le gusta presumir frente a sus rivales diciendo que es más habilidoso que ellos y un maestro de la espada, pero al mismo tiempo le gusta la simpleza de disfrutar de una noche de juegos y beber sake. En sus interacciones también demuestra serios problemas de adicción a las apuestas.
