In the latest chapter, a bold plan is concocted for one of Akiie’s great rivals, while a possible betrayal looms.

RECAP: The Elusive Samurai Chapter 118 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 119

Akiie has joined forces with Tokiyuki and his Hojo cohorts. Things are looking up, as the crew advances outward. They will move to subjugate Takauji’s forces, but Akiie warns of a shrewd opponent he has faced before. Meanwhile, Natsu plots a desertion, hoping to flee with the explosives concocted in Chapter 116.

This chapter is fascinating because it relays to the reader just how crazy the circumstances are, and how accomplished warriors like Akiie are. Akiie and his rival, Shiba Ienaga, are revealed to be 20 and 17, with the illustrations showing them in modern high school and university-age clothing to reflect this.

It goes further to say that Akiie’s plan for Tokiyuki to ambush from behind is the equivalent of mixing a grade schooler into the mix. It’s fascinating, but also alarming, seeing fighters so young being tangled in a life-or-death scenario like this.
