  • The Yakuza boss’ body quickly deformed and he turned into a tree-like structure.
  • Chihiro commanded Shiba to run away with the rescued person, and the latter used his teleportation sorcery to evade outside.
  • The person was shocked and he confessed that he had never witnessed sorcery of this manner before, as the big shots in the sorcery world lived in the big cities and the countryside rarely experienced this menace.

Shiba returns to aid Chihiro and finds him in a sound condition, and the latter starts explaining that the transformation came as an outcome of the story the Yakuza boss was about to narrate. This might’ve been a result of a spell that was activated as soon as the secrets were intended to be let out. After their business was done, Shiba headed back to Tokyo and Chihiro decided to join him. Chihiro had also become surprisingly stronger than he was three years ago, but he still hadn’t unlocked the staggering potential of his enchanted blade.

  • It was further revealed that Chihiro’s father, Kunishige Rokuhira, forged six enchanted katanas and left them for the world.
  • After the great war, those were retrieved and kept in his cellar, each blade containing a special power.
  • Those katanas could only be used by the bearer’s outlook of the world and Kunishige wished that he and his son would learn it together.

Chihiro vowed revenge on those killers who robbed him of his family and those blades and it was revealed that his blade was the seventh enchanted blade that his father made after the war. After this incident, there hasn’t been any suitable source that gives any intel on the Hishaku group and Chihiro knew that those blades were being used for sinister purposes. Thus, he also vowed to retrieve those blades and the chapter ends with Shiba finding a hopeful lead.

Chihiro has vowed to retrieve his father’s blades, and the chapter ends with this journey of the young boy trying to resolve the tragedies of his past to build a future grounded on his ideals of peace and resolution.
