In the latest chapter, Momonoi continues to pose a threat to the Hojo forces, but Tokiyuki’s allies pull through.

RECAP: The Elusive Samurai Chapter 125 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 126

Momonoi continues to reveal ridiculous details about himself while proving to be a tactical dark horse against the Hojo forces. Even his comical pompadour is deceptively silly, with protective armor being masked by the hairdo.

But the worst thing to happen in this chapter was the reveal of Yasuie Hojo, Tokiyuki’s uncle, as a hostage, his exchange as a condition for the Hojo surrender. Amidst this, Nagao Kagetada attacks Tokiyuki’s allies, fighting Kojiro and proving to be an immense threat. Indeed, Shiba Ienaga’s machinations prove to be horrifying enough to break morale.

Just before Kagetada makes his way to Tokiyuki, he’s stopped by Shina, who previously was disgraced after failing to protect her prior Lord, and had lost her fingers. In the final panel of the chapter, we’re treated to her new look, featuring insane bladed prosthetics to replace her lost fingers, and a massive futuristic-looking sword attached to her leg. Historical accuracy be damned; we’re about to see something epic in this redemption arc for Shina.
