How come there is no mention of Hao being born as an Asakura? His surname is listed Douji (and so is his mother's, Asanoha), but he is said to be from the Asakura clan. I thought Douji meant boy ("Mappa Douji" = "Demon Boy"). Can anyone clarify this? --Byakkougan 22:29, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
- Takei never really goes into details about the creation of the Asakura family, but it was mentioned several times that Hao was the founder of the family. What this implies is that when Hao became the Japanese Emperors Official Diviner, (or sometime before) he probably changed his name to something more 'noble'. He was probably also married, since he left descendants, like what he did with the Patch Tribe.
- It's the only thing I can think of that makes sense. Hopefully Takei will explore this concept in another one-shot, but that's highly unlikely. Or maybe he gives details in an interview he gave. --Wavekit 23:15, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
Curse Reflection Edit
Is the curse reflection technique the same technique Hao used on Yohmei when he tried to kill him? In the translation I read, Hao was shown "thinking" the words "mantra reversal" when Yohmei tried to kill him, and Yohmei appeared injured afterwards. Is the mantra reversal the same thing as curse reflection? --Byakkougan 21:37, October 16, 2009 (UTC)
- Yes, it's the same technique. The kanji's the same in both cases, so it's just a minor difference in translations. Meo-chan 04:23, October 17, 2009 (UTC)
Guardian Ghosts? Edit
I noticed that on Hao's page Ohachiyo isn't listed as Hao's spirit but Ohachiyo was the first spirit Hao was partnered with and it seems like he's the definition of a guardian. Is there a reason for this or should I edit the page? unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs) .

- How was he not? Ohachiyo formed an oversoul with him, he was his only companion and the article itself calls him his first GG just under the spirits section.
Unknown ability name Edit
"can easily bend oni and demigods to his will"
- I was wondering the same thing, hao has a lot of abilities, that I want know about from the manga series
