      actually weaker than black unicorn or satori, its really easy to get 100% crit chance. FYI total crit chance is the value shown on the stat page ADDED TO THE VALUE SHOWN WHEN THE WEAPON IS HELD. so if 50 on weapon plus 50 on stat you have 100%. so the 100 % crit chance effect on this weapon is useless except at low levels when your crit chance is lower. also crit chance melee mods are completely useless on most build because you easily reach 100 without them. balck unicorns base damage and satori's insane crit damage actually make them better even with the special bonuses

        I guess the correct name would be "Jinchū-maru" {じんちゅうまる}, which literally translates to: "Circle of Loyalty" or "Loyal Round"

          The name could be a Konosuba anime reference, there was a joke about the MC (Kazuma) wanting to give his sword an epic name, but his weird wizard friend (Megumin) from a clan known for weird names decided to name it Chunchun-Maru.
