What is Licht’s true count?

I. Licht’s Two Counts 

Licht has two separate counts that are confirmed. The first count that was revealed was on his left hand and stood at -999. This count was obtained after the Abandonment War and was a way to blend in with the crowd.

Nana Bassler referred to the count as the number of times girls have rejected him. The count reaches -1002 finally after Hina says that she hates him in anger.

His second count stands at 5700 and is located on his sword near the handle. It refers to the number of heads Licht has cut off. While activating Schmelman Bach’s bloodlust genes, it increases tenfold to 57000.

II. Licht’s Original Count

It is later revealed that Licht is not using his original Ballot Replica. The sword he was using is merely the one he stole from a Ballot Holder who attacked him 100 years ago.

His original count on his original Ballot Replica is 300000 and goes up till 1500000 when activated. This count stands for the people he has killed instead of his friends and loved ones.

Taketora notes that 1500000 is only 5 times normal, but Licht’s true strength is considered to be 10 times normal. Therefore, Licht’s true count may be even 3000000 or higher.


Although unconfirmed, it is likely to be true given that Sakai Tokikaze’s true count stands at 3042150, and Licht is stronger than him.

III. What is Original Ballot Replica?

The Original Ballot Replica refers to the replica of Ballots that were scientifically created to arm the Legendary Barons and amplify their powers.

The original Ballots’ origins are unknown, but they were used during the Abandonment War. They are usually used to approve a new law.

The original Ballots were used to approve the use of nuclear weapons during the war.
