Samidare (五月雨 . Early Summer Rain) is the offensive fifth stance of the Shigure Soen Ryu style. The user holds their sword in one hand and slashes at their opponent, but instead of actually attacking, pulls off a feint. Meanwhile, the actual katana is falling to the user's other hand to create a genuine slash after the intended target is caught off guard attempting to dodge the first feint attack. This technique was first seen used unsuccessfully against Squalo, who claimed to know all the Shigure Soen Ryu techniques.
