As I believe we've cleared up that numbers issue a couple posts ago (My total GP being wrong, even though it wasn't and I was factoring in the grading GP), I'm here to claim more growth points! And probably spend a few. SO!
I know technically we don't have techniques anymore, so I won't use some specific format, but I don't want there to be any confusion when Kirito uses the various applications of his Shikai. Being simple in nature but diverse in use means I have plenty of options in combat, and I'd like to name a few that I regularly use.
Description: A Shunpo move in which Kirito flash steps directly behind the enemy while holding his Zanpakuto in either hand. From here, he will twist his body in to a spiral swing diagonally downwards across the enemy's back. By using this movement, he distances his sword arm enough to rev up for a full powered swing and full follow through on the slash instead of being stopped due to the close range at which he attacks from. This also stops the enemy from attacking him instantly, as they would likely need to distance themselves to get an attack in.
Description: This is the general category for each of Kirito's lightning based attacks. Kirito will speak the words blue blossom, and then a special suffix, each signifying an individual attack. Blue Blossom, Spring: Kirito releases electricity into the air around him, then remotely activating it, causing it to shock an area around him. This is an application of the Nagashi portion of his powers. Blue Blossom, Winter: Kirito releases a spiral wave of blue lightning from his sword, similar to a kamehameha but with lightning spiraling around it. It leaves an explosion on contact with a solid substance, and leaves scorch and burn marks from the heat of the lightning. This is an application of the Blast part of his powers. Blue Blossom, Night: Kirito focusing the lightning around his blade into a buzzsaw like form, causing the sword to emanate a buzzsaw like aura around itself, made of lightning. This buzzsaw aura can cut somebody on a near miss if they touch the aura, and increases the natural cutting power of the sword.
So many powers right? That's why I wanted to lay them out. I have wind based ones as well, but I use those infrequently.
So just throwing this out there. I've realized with the help of one of our great members that the asthetic portion of my character feels a little too actual SAO Kirito like. I'll be revamping the look of all of his Zanpakuto forms, and its spirit.

Hey there, Kirito!
While it is completely acceptable to change those things, you'll have to get it accepted via a request. You won't need an IC reason for this since your character is still rather young, but it would be great if you had one!
Just make a thread in the requests board and we'll have a member of staff looking at it.
Seireitei is crumbling and the Gotei is a shell of its former self. Ravaged by the plague, the surviving Shinigami struggle to maintain the balance, but with so few of them left, the work is taxing and their fortress-city has fallen to neglect. Spread thin across all fronts, their diminished presence has been noted by friend and foe alike.
The Arrancar have rebuilt Las Noches and are rallying. The throne remains empty, but self-styled Espada have risen up from among them and are vying for control, each one endlessly testing the others’ weaknesses. Too evenly matched for any one of them to claim the crown, they bide their time, waiting for the opportune moment.
On Earth, all seems well—but there is a war being fought in the shadows as the mortals find themselves lacking the protection they once had and so sorely need. The Quincy, having realized the oppressive specter of the Shinigami is no more, are flourishing, and are fighting the Hollow-breeds with renewed vigor.
