blasting nakago cel

Fushigi Yuugi, TV
Episode fifty-two
A-5 and B-5
No background

This is from the fight scene in Tokyo. Nakago is blasting Tamahome into a building.

An interesting side note is his name. Nakago is the Japanese term for the tang of a blade. This is the part helps give a blade its balance and where the hilt is attached. Japanese smiths/artists will sign the nakago of a blade when ther are proud of the way it turned out. I also thought that his symbol, heart/spirit, was an interesting choice.
