Hyo Amano (天野 漂, Amano Hyō) is a character from The Last Blade game series. He is voiced by Akio Ohtsuka. He is visually modeled on the manga character Kumo from Haguregumo. His symbolic items are sakura (cherry blossoms) and money; his official slogan is "Romancing Wanderer": 江戸の喧嘩桜.
His role in The Last Blade is somewhat ambiguous. As a carefree and fun-loving individual, Hyo has a strong love for sake, women, and the thrill of the fight. When he discovers the petals of the beautiful cherry trees falling from their branches, he panics and decides he must go kill his opponents to solve the “problem”. In the end, he discovers it was only the changing of the seasons that resulted in the petals falling from the trees.
After learning of the cause for the various Sakura trees petals falling, Hyo is devastated to learn that the sky is turning a dreadful gray color due to the re-opening of “Hell's Gate”. He draws his sword, but finds it oddly dull and fragile. In order to fix it, he decides to ask his friend Takane Genzō, a master swordsmith, to fix it. However, his friend has passed away. Amano discovers that he had a daughter (Hibiki Takane) who had recently departed the household. Concerned for his sword and for Hibiki, he sets off to locate her.
Hyo's ending in both games is interesting in that the player must choose one of two (or three in the first game) choices. He will normally ask if the player is a man or woman and will have different scenes and quotes depending on their answer.
Amano is characterized by his outlandish mannerisms and flamboyant personality.
- Petal Attack - Amano has several special techniques involving attacking with his bokutou engulfed with energy and Sakura petals.
- Explosive Fire Projectile - Amano can throw a projectile to the floor which causes an explosion. This projectile takes the form of a Shoji piece.
Amano fights with his self-taught one-armed Kendo. He uses the element of fire in some of his attacks as well as special techniques involving sakura petals.
