Samurai 8’s first major arc is getting down to business now and last week’s immense chapter set up a great fight that’s going to happen this week, between Hachimaru and Ata. For those of you who don’t know, Ata came looking for Hachimaru but his father tried to stop Ata in his path by absorbing his powers and taking him out with himself.
However, he failed midway and Ata survived. Meanwhile, Ann and Hachimaru remained fixed at one spot, while Daruma was trying his best to recover in time. Spoilers for Samurai 8 Chapter 12 are out now, and it looks like things are going to get very spicy in this chapter.
Before we begin, please note this post may contain official spoilers from the next chapter of the manga. If being spoiled is not for you, I suggest that you stop reading the post here. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started. Also, note that we did not create the spoilers or leaked them. They’re available all over the internet.
Samurai 8 Chapter 12: Hachimaru’s Steps In
According to the spoilers, in Samurai 8 Chapter 12, Hachimaru is going to step up, finally and face-off against Ata. Now, we know that Ata is too strong for Hachimaru. Let’s face it, Hachimaru is fledgling and Ata isn’t. Ata even defeated the protector samurai of the planet easily and Hachimaru stands no chance.
But, Ata should be severely weakened thanks to Hachimaru’s father. Even then, I think Ata will easily get the better of Hachimaru. However, this will serve enough time for Daruma to recover and he’ll then proceed to take out a weakened Ata.
Ann should be relevant to the battle as well. I think she’s going to play a big role and we already saw her trying to defend Hachimaru with her life last week. Hopefully, she plays a much bigger part in the next chapter as well.
Samurai 8 Chapter 12 will be officially released on July 28, 2019. The scans for the chapter will be out by July 25, 2019.
