Kagurabachi Chapter 5 Recap


After defeating the sorcerer who attempted to kidnap Char, Chihiro leaves the young girl with his information-broker ally, Hinao, to give himself time to recover from the battle. Chihiro’s hand is shown to be twitching violently, implying that his body may not be as compatible with the series’ life-force-based magic system as it initially seemed.

Unfortunately for Chihiro, Char snuck into his car because she didn’t want to stay cooped up at Hinao’s office. Chihiro’s initial anger flickers out when Char explains that she was kept in a cage for a long time, convincing the stoic swordsman to let her stay with him. As this happens, Chihiro’s mentor, Shiba, interrogates the sorcerer who attacked Char, who reveals that he works for Genichi Sojo, an influential arms dealer and powerful sorcerer who wields the enchanted sword Cloud Gouger.

Amidst all this, Sojo learns about Chihiro by brutally interrogating an onlooker who saw the battle. Intrigued by Chihiro’s ownership of a seventh enchanted blade, Sojo orders his subordinates to “open the child’s cage.” Moments later, a multi-limbed abomination formed from multiple human bodies appears before Chihiro and Char, intent on recapturing the girl and killing the swordsman.
