Takehiko showcased some skill inventing from his bedroom asylum where his Uncle put him. This was of course done for actions previously while managing immense pain. He decided to make a voice box due to his pride wanting to fix his throat himself. He got a wake-up call from a caretaker who slapped him silly to bring about more sense into that stupid little brain of his. In this way, he grew more mature and learned more about what it meant to rely on others. It was his potential growth in this regard that was most fascinating. Pain Endurance and Mental Deduction being shown on display here along with durability. 2:The Medical BeginningInformation/Explanation:

Cho Zi saw this and decided to give him a push instead. Failure not being the thing the young boy needed. In this Takehiko once again grew in terms of mental acclaim. 3:Two Kuchikis and a Stick or TwoInformation/Explanation:
This was one of the hardest training sessions he'd ever done. Torabevu put him through the wringer not once but multiple times. To an extent where his Hollow got closer to coming more in control. The training of making one thousand perfect sword swings. Not to mention avoiding enhanced Shikai from the elder Kuchiki. This training was potent and put Takehiko to the very edge of his being. Breaking those shackles that were around him more and more. He got much better at handling pain here and swinging his sword. But also his skill with Hoho drastically showed signs of improvement. Managing his power very astutely and the amount of energy he had. By developing a form of defense around him that allows him to protect himself from ten meters out. Though this shuts down his knowledge of areas beyond it as they become dark. This unrefined thing is something of a product that even Takehiko isn't aware of how much he relies on instinct alone during this. Managing to heal the elder and going into a battle where he was pushed into a corner. Takehiko's endurance for pain didn't waver as he pushed forward. Facing a truly challenging fight with the figure of Tora. Learning more about his mentor in this regard and growing further. His strength had increased near the end as his fight with Tora had proven an immense amount of growth had begun to accumulate within him along with his powers. 4:Curving EnthusiasmInformation/Explanation:
Deciding to seek the experience and expertize of one of the greatest kido users in Gotei history. Lady Momo Hinamori was a fantastic teacher. Schooling him both mentally and physically in regards to his incantations and kido usage. Also having a small sparring session with him which helped him grow more as he learned. Takehiko had grown much more from this endeavor of meeting her. The youthful boy showing signs of getting better at Kido despite a lack of spiritual power. Despite not having the energy to continue or push on in some stages. Takehiko did show signs of growth and strengthening of his reiatsu and Kido skills. He also did execute a spell with his hollow mask on to showcase imbuing of it within the power of that idea yet explored. 5: Questions Unanswered 6: Talent Yet to BloomInformation/Explanation:
A battle between young prospects of the Gotei future. Takehiko did win the bout through excellent kido and Hoho usage. Showcasing immense kido skills but also being able to usher out Utusemi in this case. And afterward mending the injuries of his friend who'd nearly lost to his hollow. Takehiko showed some growth here despite spending every last drop in his tank for this healing. The victory wasn't something he considered or saw as even an accomplishment as he was to busy helping his friend by using his technique to lull the hollow into a slumber. 7:Broken and ReforgedInformation/Explanation:
Finally we arrive at the last thread of this portion of his journey. Takehiko has gleaned the most important fact despite enduring large scale amounts of pain. His bones broken and the body cut to ribbons on multiple occasions. He used medical healing but also understood he needed others in order to succeed. To not become his Uncle Tsubasa, in the end, Takehiko had to walk a path with others by his side. Showing a tremendous amount of growth in this respect. 8: Person MaintenanceInformation/Explanation:
Takehiko was called on to heal a woman by the name of Elyss who'd been wounded rather critically by the man known as Arkin. This injury and case were bad along the face but he was able to mend her leaving no sign of scars or other facial deformation. Takehiko's skills were on display as well as a sign of a different version of him. Someone who more seriously addressed those around him to quickly handle the problem. Before returning to his normal nature at the end of the thing.» Extra:
In threads where Takehiko fights or works himself. He will work until and well past exhaustion falling over. Often times using Skull Stamina pills like Hanataro just to train longer. So in threads like that where he'll push and bust limits, he does it often. Even though it leads him to be very tired and exhausted in the end.
