With one month to burn until they can reclaim the enchanted katana the Hishaku is putting up for auction, Shiba tells Chihiroo to lay low and look after Char while he plans their next move. In the meantime, Norisaku Madoka, having been shown mercy by Shiba, decides to change his ways, with this estranged sister agreeing to meet him so he can start making amends.

Unfortunately, Madoko’s boss, Genichi Sojo, learns of his subordinate’s plan to reform and kills him and his sister. After meeting with the older brother of the mind-manipulating sorcerer Chihiro killed a few chapters ago, Sojo decides to deal with Chihiro immediately, barging into Hinao’s cafe and clashing blades with the young swordsman.

The final pages of Kagurabachi Chapter 9 indicate that the next chapter will focus on the battle between Chihiro and Gojo. With Hinao and Char caught in the crossfire, Chihiro is going into this fight at a severe disadvantage. With that said, seeing the two in danger could give Chihiro the emotional jumpstart he needs to turn the tables on Gojo.
