    TRIVIA
    Released on November 25, 1998 in Japan.

    The title translates from Japanese as 'Bakumatsu Romance Episode II - Swordsman of the Moonlight: On the Moon a Flower Blooming, a Petal Falling'.

    This game is known outside Japan as The Last Blade 2.

    Kojiroh Sanada is a homage to an ancient Chinese legend about a girl disguising herself as her father (the same story was also used in the Disney movie Mulan).

    Lee Rekka is a homage to the Cantonese hero, Wong Fei Hung.

    Akari and Juzoh are the comedic relief characters in the Gekka series: If Akari is fighting someone other than Juzoh, Juzoh can be seen next to the elephant. If Akari is fighting Juzoh, Akari's three friends (Hijiri Nanase, Aoi Yahata and Shizuka Kujou) can be seen next to the elephant. If Juzoh is fighting someone other than Akari, Akari can be seen with her friends.

    UPDATES
    In the original (Japanese) version of Last Blade 2, each of the 3 modes is described by one kanji: Chikara (red), Waza (blue) and Kiwame (green). Chikara means 'strength', Waza 'skill' and Kiwame 'extreme'.
    These 3 modes were made into 'Power', 'Speed' and 'EX', respectively, for their English release.
    However, one case where the modes were literally translated remain.
    If you look at the English 'How To Play' intro in Last Blade 2, you will see 'Strength and Skill' where they should have said 'Power and Speed'.
    A slight mistake in the English renaming, or a tribute to the Japanese and therefore correct, names.
