Powers and Abilities
- “It is because we are living in the shinigami world, where death is always following us, that I... want to put my life on the line to subdue this war-ridden world. I dearly love both the Order and my comrades... That is why I want to protect them."
- "Do you... honestly think I'll stay down!? No chance! Who'll protect my friends if I can't do that much? No one, that's who! Even if I do die because of my actions, as long as my friends are saved, I'll die happy."
- "Its because your my friend that I'm doing what I'm doing. Someone has to save you from yourself, and since you don't seem willing to do it yourself, I guess my hands are tied."
Behind the Scenes
His spiritual energy awakening through emotional reaction is heavily based on Son Gohan from Dragon Ball Z and how his power did the same under the same conditions.
Jinta originally used a very different zanpakuto with two shuriken blades, one chained and one unchained, but I did a bit of looking and found one that belonged to another character on this very wiki that was too similar for my liking, so I changed it before I wrote anything about him. The zanpakuto he now utilizes was the second zanpakuto that belonged to Kenji before I had to change his character. I spent a lot of time on that zanpakuto, so I'm happy I got a chance to use it.
I gave him the zanpakutō Nijigasumi for plot reasons and because the weapon - considering how it was left behind when Maki Ichinose died and in light of the Tōju and how the spirit remains, at least for a time - could be easily incorporated into fanon works.
Jinta's appearance and abilities are based off of Natsu Dragneel from the manga/anime series Fairy Tail, but his Shikai is slightly different because Jinta doesn't literally breath fire or eat it to augment his skills. The black flames Jinta uses as part of his Shikai are influenced by the Amaterasu from the manga/anime series Naruto.
The mention of the wristbands is, in fact, an allude to my own crappy luck with the wristbands I wear myself. I've bought more pairs than sense, and yet something always happens to wreck them.
- A running gag in the series so far is that Jinta's wristbands are either burned or otherwise damaged beyond repair whenever he makes even a slight appearance.
- The frog-shaped wallet is an allude to Naruto's own frog-shaped wallet.
- The Haja Hakuda techniques were designed by Deus. I only expanded on them to suit Jinta's style, so all credit should go to him, 'cause he rightly deserves it.
