RECAP: The Elusive Samurai Chapter 115 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 116

Tokiyuki is alive and in hiding, and making calculated decisions on who he recruits to fight back against the emerging Ashikaga threat. His letter is to none other than Emperor Go-Daigo in an attempt to pacify the leader in light of the Hojo’s previous transgressions.

This move was carefully thought-out and well-executed, making a persuasive case for an alliance. Despite the animosity his father might have had toward the Emperor, Tokiyuki was acting on his own behalf, and responsibly at that.

Meanwhile, we’re treated to another appearance from who the fans have dubbed as Tengu Girl, or Natsu as revealed in the chapter. She might be out for Tokiyuki’s head, but the fans are certainly confident she’ll join the cause. We’ll find out more about this with the release of The Elusive Samurai Chapter 116!
