Tokiyuki Hojo has emerged victorious, preserved his honor, and enraged his enemies before we even reach the release date of The Elusive Samurai Chapter 131. One of his greatest opponents yet has been conquered, Tokiyuki joins the Southern Court as we enter a new phase in the story.

While this might mean a break between exciting arcs, there’s no guarantee, as we’re seeing his main enemy, Takauji Ashikaga, furious at the news. It seems he’s just learning about the young Hojo’s survival, and this shall leave a ripple effect on future events.

RECAP: The Elusive Samurai Chapter 130 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 131

Shiba Ienaga lies dead on the battlefield, a 17-year-old slain by a 12-year-old, Tokiyuki, in mortal combat. This would be seen as tragic in modern times, but in an era when even making it past infancy is a struggle, it was seen as an extraordinary life. News of Tokiyuki and Akiie completing their first campaign reaches Emperor Go-Daigo, who sees this as a great way to upset the Ashikaga Shogunate.

Upset barely begins to describe it, too. When presented with even the passing information of Tokiyuki being alive, he savagely breaks the back of a noble he was giving financial assistance a moment earlier. Turns out there are things worse than shooting the messenger. But this provokes him, calling back to the quote, “Demon, come this way.” It signaled that the power balance was no longer in favor solely of Ashikaga.
