The problem is that Takaya does not seem to remember his past lives as Kagetora and therefore his powers are not up to par.

 Mirage of Blaze :: Boys on Boys on Film
Kagetora never accepted Naoe's love for him, but he never allowed Naoe to leave his side, either.
The 13 Mirage of Blaze episodes are a slow, complex dance in the relationship of Takaya and Naoe, and Takaya's relationship with the Kagetora personality inside himself.
The roots of this relationship are hardly explored, but the traitorous, devestating event of 30 years previous -- the event that caused Kagetora to block out his memories when he became Takaya -- is teased and hinted at, giving the audience a true example of the level of twisted devotion between Naoe and Kagetora.

It is the mission of the Uesugi Yashashu to stop the interventions of the dead.
To do this they take the body of a living person usually when the person is born and expel that person?s soul replacing the body?s original soul with their own and they use their special powers to achieve the goal of their mission.

His adoptive son, Uesugi Kagetora must fight and lead the people in the Sengoku Battle, but what he doesn't know is that even after his death, the battle still lingers on.
Kagetora and 4 of his most loyal allies must reincarnate as well, as the Dark Sengoku continues, using their powers to return those misplaced warriors to the land of the dead where they belong, to keep the balance of power in check.
For the shonen-ai fan, Mirage of Blaze adds a nice twist in the fact that Naoe and Kagetora were once lovers, and Naoe is still very much in love with his master.

Thus enters Takaya Ohgi, a normal, seventeen year old high school boy, until he encounters a man named Naoe Uesugi (also a reincarnated warlord under order of Kagetora) and several other people who claim he is the reincarnation of the great warlord, Kagetora.
But, unlike his previous reincarnations, Takaya does not remember being Uyesugi Kagetora or any of his other past lives this time around.

The proud Takaya (Kagetora) wonders how he can return the love of a man who both worships and is jealous of him.
Initially there were many mysteries in the first 10 volumes because Takaya, the current incarnation of UESUGI Kagetora was born without the memory of his previous reincarnations.
