Seppuku[edit]

That Anami had to be dispatched by his brother-in-law is not an indication that the ritual was incorrectly performed - the article on seppuku makes it clear that it is accepted practice for a second to perform dakikubi. 91.106.152.123 (talk) 08:26, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

If the seppuku ritual is correctly conducted, second (kaishakunin) must decapitate the attemptor. This manuver of dispatching is called kaishaku. It is not necessarily done in dakikubi manners, though is considered desirable. --Hibiki-c (talk) 15:50, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

It is possible that Anami correctly attempted seppuku but his brother-in-law failed in dispatch him. However, Japanese article states that he voluntarily rejected kaishaku (nonacceptance of kaishaku is considered as a manifestation of self-punishment for its painful result).--Hibiki-c (talk) 16:03, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
