Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Omega Placebo: This ability is based on genetically restructuring her body through stimulation of her imagination. This also comes with a handy regeneration side effect anytime she changes shape. Using only her imagination, Kamitsu can transform into anyone she has seen or has read about, even if the person is fictional or a fairy tale creature. The more Kamitsu knows about the person, the more effective the transformation becomes, for example, she can also perform the same techniques with a similar degree of power. She cannot transform into inanimate objects.
  • Alberich: Kamitsu transform into the King of Dwarfs from the novel "The Ring of the Nibelungen".
  • Beautiful Girl: Kamitsu transforms into a woman from the Opera "Carmen" to seduce her opponents in the middle of a fight to lure them into a trap.
  • Tarzan: Kamitsu transforms into her interpretation of Tarzan from the novel 'The Jungle Book'.
  • Jungle Squall: Kamitsu launches a flurry of punches and kicks in her Tarzan form.
  • Nippon Banchou: Kamitsu's trump card. She transforms into Takeshi Kongou, Akira's older brother and the leader of the Dark Student Council. This form grants her access to greatly enhanced physical capacity, and also allows her to considerably harden her body by flexing her muscles like Akira and Takeshi Kongou can.
Bungaku Nippon Banchou
