The monoblade series is just a part of our technology. We cannot make a profit by this tech alone, however, because of the high overhead involved in manufacture. We are under the umbrella of our corporate group. Eh? Zaibatsus? Weren't they disbanded by an American general...MacDonald, or something?

Kenshiri-Adachi Armaments, more commonly known by its abbreviated name, Kendachi, is a Japanese arms manufacturer specializing in advanced technology.

Overview Edit

You'll be a lucky man if you never come face to face with the beautiful yet fearsome monoblade and its manufacturer. Kendachi is one of the few companies with factories in orbit. Although they have the world's top tech in the making of orbital crystal and glass-fiber, they don't make much profit. How can they then set up factories in orbit? The Corporate Group.

Big corporations in Japan often invest funds in small companies with original tech to place them in the exclusive keiretsu system. The Monoblade series, a synonym for Kendachi in some countries, was developed by Kendachi Tessho to demonstrate the uses for his crystal technology to gain funding for a low-profit company.

As a side-note, monoblades are not sold as weapons in Japan. They are only used in industrial equipment over here. Also, the president, Kendachi-san himself, is also known for his business acumen, but also for his skill at kendo, and his short temper. He sometimes deals with troublemakers himself, with the aid of a crack solo troop. And yes, they are licensed to carry monokatanas in Japan.[1]
