Expunging Sword (ToG)

Expunging Sword as it appears in Tales of Graces ƒ.

Expunging Sword (斬空刃無塵衝 Zankuujin Mujinshou?, "Slaying Air Blade Dustless Pierce") is the third mystic arte obtained by Asbel Lhant in Tales of Graces.

Arte Description and History

When the arte is used, Asbel thrusts his sheathed sword into his foes, slashes them into the air, kicks them back to the ground, then kicks them once more knocking them back. Afterward, he charges toward the enemies, then unleashes his sword from its scabbard, forming thousands of slashes while Asbel cuts three times. During the battle against the final boss, Asbel uses an alternate battle quote to match the mood of the battle.
