His Manyou no Ittou Elemental Burst makes Kazuha dash forward and delivers a powerful Anemo strike that deals AoE damage to those enemies that will be hit by the burst while generating Ruka Akino, a field that deals additional Anemo damage at set intervals.
His Matsukaze Karyuu passive will decrease any sprint stamina consumed by 20% for the party, while Weathering Blade deals 200% element damage in plunging damage if Chihayafuru connects with enemies that afflicted with that same element.
