a.k.a. Dazzle! (Stupid Tokyopop giving Contemptible Names)

Hatenkou Yuugi (which tranlates to "Unprecedented Game") is a manga written by Minari Endou, starting in November 1999, and is still ongoing. There was also a 10 episode anime released during the winter season of 2008.

A young girl named Rahzel is kicked out of her house, by her adoptive father and told to "go out and see the world". Shortly afterwards, Rahzel teams up with the albino Alzeid, who is searching for the person who murdered his father, and the Chivalrous Pervert Baroqueheat. The manga follows their journey as they meet friends, enemies and supernatural entities.

Tropes include:


  Baroqueheat: It'd be nice if all the women in the world could be happy. All the men can spit up blood and go to hell. All but me, of course.


 Rahzel: "For breaking this rule, you will have to be severely punished!"


 These are a family heirloom, passed down for generations.

This pair of scissors belonged to a friend of mine who became one with the wind this summer.

They were given to me by my sister on my birthday.

These scissors are proof of adulthood in my clan.

When you defeat a lion barehanded, you're awarded a pair of scissors.

  • Mundane Wish: In a side story where they're making wishes on a meteor shower, Rahzel wishes that they can all watch the meteors again next year.
  • My Name Is Not Durwood: Rayborn (aka Spicy Diamond).
    • Saivah's not too happy either when Alzeid starts calling him Thomas.
  • The Nicknamer: Rahzel.
  • No Sense of Direction: Rahzel, as Alzeid is all too fond of reminding her.

  • One-Winged Angel: The Angel Text was intended to turn people into this.
  • Overprotective Dad: Rahzel's adoptive father, perhaps surprisingly.
