Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Watanabe no Tsuna was escorting a beautiful woman home when amidst bolts of lightning she suddenly changed into a hairy demon, gripped her escort by the hair, and flew off with him. Tsuna drew his sword and cut off her arm, falling to the ground by Kitano Shrine. The demon's fist was still grasping his hair. Posing as an old woman, the demon later recovered the arm.
