RECAP: The Elusive Samurai Chapter 120 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 121

The Battle of Tone River is over. It’s a victory for Tokiyuki and his imperial allies. It’s in this battle and the aftermath that the Hojo scion sees what made their combined forces so strong. There’s a blurring of class lines between the soldiers, and even though elite leaders like Akiie might still enjoy greater luxuries than his underlings, he still inspires their confidence and loyalty.

If you’re wondering how he does this, the rest of the characters ask the same thing. Tokiyuki’s former mentor and adoptive father united people through faith, but how does this haughty officer pull it off? Simply through a show of respect, in a shocking moment where he sees his soldier’s arrow wound is infected, and sucks the wound to drain it. At this moment, he gets down to their level, perhaps even beneath it, so that they get the care they deserve after a glorious victory.

But as the chapter closes and Tokiyuki meets the other generals alongside Akiie, he learns they might not all be as admirable.
