RECAP: The Elusive Samurai Chapter 128 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 129
Shiba Ienaga quickly takes an early advantage thanks to an incredibly lightweight sword forged by Masamune, Hayatebachi. It is a sword with a strategy of overwhelming, quick attacks designed to be nigh-impossible to evade, even for Tokiyuki. For Tokiyuki, his biggest obstacle is the weight of his sword, Onimaru, slowing him down.
But Akiie reminds him of his purpose: to carry the hopes and dreams of previous Hojo retainers to redeem his family name. Suddenly, he feels a second wind, renewed with the drive to survive, his sword being as light as a feather enabling him to block and go on the counteroffensive. He seizes the high ground and then…runs away into Ienaga’s forces. Despite it seeming like a foolish idea, he has a plan as shown in the final panels of the chapter, where he wishes to bait Ienaga to follow him and finish the fight. I can’t wait to see how this fight continues in The Elusive Samurai Chapter 129!
