Its remarkable that it does not need a victorious duel, it triggers after every duel. It could mean one free honoring every round and it disincentivizes dueling vs crane, i like it.

The only duel that is actively run these days is Mirumoto Raitsugu. We'll see if that changes after Children of the Empire.

Really can't wait to use this one, some variation in playstyle at long last. Is there already some real release date for our clan pack?

The art of Kyuden Kakita looks great on a playmat, if you are in need of a new playmat I highly suggest the Kyuden Kakita Playmat on etsy, the artist receives money when you buy it.

Unpopular opinion but KK isn't great, its good, but it does require you to warp your deck when building to take full advantage of it. It may be slightly better than Shizuka Toshi but its not as amazing as everyone seems to think. What it did do is pre Worlds 2019 caused crane to warp their deck building in such a way that everyone thought the KK Dueling deck was the best option, and caused a lack of diversity imo in the crane field. Its super great for crane to have an always there Honoring effect, but its does cost us in deck building as we have to have a critical mass of duels to activate it every turn, because if you aren't using it every turn it is flat out worse than Shizuka Toshi. Now with the RL of Toshimoko you are losing one of the key characters in the crane duel deck or you are losing one of the key duels in the deck with Policy Debate also being on the RL. With the loss of Magistrate Station as well to the RL I think it will become more apparent how warping in a negative way KK is to deck building, because Station let you look the other way on it because it was amazing.
