Chapter 5

Chapter Five: Kagefusa Once Again (Japanese: 五話: 影房再び) Edit

This chapter starts with a flashback of Chifusa's last fight against Kagefusa, then shows the former's childhood along with her mother, her sister and a middle-aged lady (a servant of the Manyuu family).

The chapter then shows that, after travelling some more, Chifusa encounters the aforementioned (now aged) lady in her shack. As they discuss of the war that opposed Chifusa's mother to the Tokugawa Shogunate, and of one of the techniques contained in the Manyuu Scroll, they are ambushed by Kagefusa, who has seemingly regained her breasts, and by Kaede, who reluctantly restrains Chifusa.
