RECAP: The Elusive Samurai Chapter 116 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 117
In Chapter 116, enemies become potential allies, and new weapons are discovered as an attempt to attack Tokiyuki is seemingly put on hold. Genba is testing an explosive to find its reactive compounds and it brings us to an important historical lesson: Japan was a pioneering nation in the use of human feces as fertilizer. Hold on, this is relevant.
Essentially, this serves not only as a historical lesson on agriculture and how nutrient-rich poop from the wealthy was pricey and sought-after but also on how versatile it is. It turns out that this leads to a valuable discovery, the nitrate in explosives “results when micro-organisms in the soil break down excrement in urine.” The results of this discovery are a glorious eureka moment, but infinitely more gross.
This results in a new weapon added to Tokiyuki’s arsenal, and Genba seemingly charming Natsu to their side as our heroes wait on Mikado Go-Daigo’s response. Things are looking up for Tokiyuki going into The Elusive Samurai Chapter 117!
