RECAP: The Elusive Samurai Chapter 127 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 128

Uncle Yasuie has been recovered and taken to safety. The hostage is recovered, and the enemy loses a major tool in this fight. The enemy splits off to try and recover this loss, and Hojo’s forces are commanded by Akiie to run them down. Despite Ienaga’s machinations to draw out Tokiyuki, the young prince took the bait for the chance to fight him.

Ienaga was prepared to die already, so this next challenge might not matter as much to him. His journey thus far is similar to Tokiyuki’s. But staying to take responsibility, and preparing to die in battle either way, this combat challenge is supported by Akiie. The conditions are that if Tokiyuki loses, their forces will surrender, and Ienaga’s honor will be intact. Much like Tokiyuki’s recent battles, this will also be a chance for Ienaga to avenge his fallen allies, with the next chapter promising to be an explosive, fast-paced duel!
