Samurai 8 Chapter 3 came out just a couple of days ago, and I think Masashi Kishimoto and Akira Okubo have done a decent job in laying down the basis for the manga. I have to say, I’ve been surprised quite often by this manga, and the writing of the story is actually much better than I was expected it to be.
However, it is still difficult for me to judge this manga because let’s be honest, we’re just 3 chapters in so far. I will say that the manga is heading in the right direction though, and that’s a very good thing. In this post, we’ll be talking about Samurai 8 Chapter 4, so let’s get started!
Before we begin, please note this post may contain official spoilers from the previous chapters 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.
Towards the end of the previous chapter, we saw that Nanashi didn’t actually want to go with Hayatarou and Hachimaru. Instead, she wanted to go on her own adventure and meet Hachimaru somewhere in the future. I’m really sad about that because I wanted her to be an important part of the group. However, knowing that we’ll see her in the future once again is enough. I’m excited about her return already.
At the same time, something interesting about Hachimaru was teased at the end of the previous chapter. Apparently, the soul that was keeping Hachimaru moving was very powerful and it seems Hachimaru isn’t just some random kid.
He’s special, somehow. His father is also someone who is very intriguing to Daruma. I think we’ll find out about the identity of this family in the next chapter. Also, what about Hachimaru’s mother? Maybe we’ll hear more of her in the next chapter of the manga.
Samurai 8 Chapter 4 update is on 3 June 2019. The scans for the chapter will be out on May 31, 2019.
