In Chapter 131, the focus is shifted toward Tokiyuki’s allies who learn about their shortcomings thanks to the legendary swordsmith, Masamune.

RECAP: Masamune Bestows Powerful Gifts to Shina and Kojiro

During a well-deserved rest, Tokiyuki nurses his sore arm after fighting for his life against Ienaga. But Kojiro Nezu, while in one piece after the latest battle, nurses a wounded pride after being defeated by Nagao. It turns out his sword wasn’t suited to his needs, so Masamune creates an odachi with a brace attached to Kojiro’s arm for stability, enabling swift parrying and one-handed swings. He named the blade Kurogane yo Nanagi, Black Iron Willow, and it’ll be super exciting to see this in battle!

Meanwhile, it’s revealed that Masamune’s creations for Shina also allow her to lean into her berserker-style strengths, but for her also to tire out and give way for her comrades to join in the action. It’s a bit of a shakier justification, but it’s nonetheless cool to see. Finally, the next chapter is teased to be a side story, where Akiie sets up a huge fishing competition for the biggest catch, with the prize being enough money to buy one’s home village, which Tokiyuki sees as a way to raise funds to support his cause. It’ll be a fun read next week!
