Rekka Daizantou: the blazing sword of epicness

The thing is when I saw Shinkenger, what really fascinated me was this weapon in Shinkenger known as the Rekka Daizantou. I kind of wonder if the prop is made of really light materials seeing that both Tori Matsuzaka who plays Takeru Shiba and his stuntman Hirofumi Fukuzawa somehow could draw it. But if we're to talk of real metal, it would be very hard to draw it and it takes a lot of strength to draw such a heavy weapon.

Due to its size, the prop never used real flames for a flame sword scene. Just common sense judgment- look at how the flames engulf the whole blade and it's way more difficult to draw it than just using the samurai. If they wanted more effects, then CGI flames would have been the answer since real flames would be way too risky. In Bioman, the use of real flames won't be as hard as the flame sword (with real flames) move above.

Not only that, this gun also becomes a gigantic cannon where the other power discs are loaded by the other members to finish off the monster. Now that's one badass sword if you ask me!
