A New Threat, Genichi Soji – Kagurabachi Chapter 5

A+New+Threat%2C+Genichi+Soji+-+Kagurabachi+Chapter+5

Chapter 5, titled, “A Good Meal,” released on October 15th, 2023, began some time after Chihiro’s defeat of the sorcerer from the previous chapter. Chihiro and Char had returned to Hinao and her cafe, though Chihiro nor Hinao still had no clue as to why Char had sorcerers after her. Char had voiced her hunger, so Chihiro told Hinao to keep an eye on her while he went to grab something for her to eat.

   We then were thrown into a flashback of the direct aftermath of Chihiro’s battle with the sorcerer, where Mr. Shiba opted to stay with the sorcerer to pry more information out of him. Transitioning back to the present, Char had unexpectedly got into the car Chihiro was driving, something the latter found to be a bit frustrating at first.

   We then switched over to Mr. Shiba as he interrogated the sorcerer about the enchanted blades and who he’s working for. “I’m warning you, just hand over the kid without any more trouble,” the sorcerer said. “You don’t wanna get mixed up in this. The power behind this is far greater than you can fathom.”

   After that, through more intense interrogation from Mr. Shiba, the sorcerer finally gave the name “Genichi Sojo,” a weapons dealer who controls Japan, a major player in the underworld who had already learned of Chihiro’s existence and the fact that he has a seventh enchanted katana. Mr. Shiba called Chihiro and told him that Sojo is the one after Char and, furthermore, he’s the one who has possession of the enchanted blade Cloud Gouger.

   To conclude the chapter, a group of individuals, most likely some of Genichi Sojo’s goons, found Chihiro as he drove around town with Char, preparing to attack.
