RECAP: The Elusive Samurai Chapter 121 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 122

Tokiyuki met more of his fellow leaders after his latest battle, and their temperaments proved disturbing. While Yuki was far too cavalier about his willingness to kill despite a cartoonishly innocent face, he was still respected and easily understood. Nanbu Moroyuki, another ally, uses an interpreter to speak to Tokiyuki, but it’s also clear as day he’s just mocking the boy.

But perhaps most upsetting is meeting Nitta Tokujumaru, son of Nitta Yoshisada, who destroyed Kamakura. The young boy is not even ten in this appearance, but would later grow up to be a deadly warlord, calling himself Nitta Yoshioki. For now, Tokiyuki is forced into tacit cooperation with them, while the enemy plots a strategy to pin Akiie’s forces at Kyo. Citing glimpses into the future, Ashikaga could face internal struggles soon, so sights are set for Akiie’s head as the next target.
