Recap of Kagurabachi Chapter 39

In chapter 39, titled “Surpass!”, the narrative continued with Chihiro’s intense battle against Kyora Sazanami.

With the aid of Hakuri, Chihiro managed to gain the upper hand.

However, Kyora’s unyielding determination to save the Rakuzaichi led him to play his last card.

The chapter opened with Hakuri evacuating prisoners from the Storehouse to the outside of the Rakuzaichi building, where Hinao, Char, and Mr. Inazuma were waiting.

The storyline then shifted back to the battlefield, where Chihiro launched an attack with Kuro: Shred, which Kyora blocked by manipulating the terrain.

Kyora taunted Chihiro for caring about the auction merchandise, as Hakuri’s condition worsened due to the strain of maintaining the Storehouse’s consciousness.

Meanwhile, Kyora’s projection in the auction room inspired the crowd with a stirring speech.

As the battle intensified, Chihiro demonstrated remarkable agility, escaping Kyora’s space-manipulated spikes and launching another barrage of slashes.

Despite his exhaustion, Chihiro continued to push his limits. In a dramatic turn, Kyora deflected Chihiro’s sword but found himself outmaneuvered by a teleportation maneuver executed by Hakuri.

In the climax, Chihiro landed a critical blow on Kyora, who then reminisced about Hakuri’s ambition to surpass him as the clan leader.

Despite his grievous wound, Kyora hid underground, setting the stage for the next confrontation.

What to Expect in Kagurabachi Chapter 40

Given the events of the previous chapter, Kagurabachi chapter 40 is likely to feature Kyora Sazanami revealing the Shinuchi Enchanted Blade to display its partial powers against Chihiro Rokuhira.

Kyora’s goal appears to be to finalize the Rakuzaichi auction, and showcasing the blade’s abilities would serve both to attract buyers and to defeat Chihiro.

As Kyora is driven by the dual motives of completing the auction and avenging his fallen clan members, the upcoming chapter may show him using the Shinuchi in a desperate attempt to turn the tide of the battle.

Fans can expect high-stakes action, with Chihiro possibly uncovering new strategies to counter Kyora’s formidable abilities.

Key Highlights and Speculations

  1. Kyora’s Final Stand:
  • With the Shinuchi Enchanted Blade now in play, Kyora’s resolve to save the Rakuzaichi and uphold his clan’s legacy will be put to the test. The Shinuchi’s powers, previously hinted at but not fully revealed, are expected to take center stage.
  1. Chihiro’s Strategy:
  • Chihiro, despite his exhaustion, must find new ways to outmaneuver Kyora. His previous successes have been due to a combination of skill and Hakuri’s support. In this chapter, we may see Chihiro employing more innovative tactics to overcome the sorcerer.
  1. Auction Room Dynamics:
  • The reaction of the Kamunabi sorcerers and other auction participants to the unfolding battle could add another layer of complexity. Their discussions about the Shinuchi Enchanted Blade and its potential impact might influence the outcome of the auction and future battles.
  1. Hakuri’s Condition:
  • Given the strain on Hakuri in the previous chapter, his current state will be crucial. If he is incapacitated, Chihiro will have to fend for himself, making the battle even more challenging.
  1. Potential Alliances:
  • The ongoing conflict might also see the emergence of new allies or enemies. Characters like Hinao, Char, and Mr. Inazuma could play pivotal roles, either by providing support to Chihiro or by facing new threats themselves.

Final Words

Kagurabachi chapter 40 promises to be an action-packed continuation of the series, with high stakes and intense character developments.

Fans can look forward to seeing how Chihiro navigates the challenges posed by Kyora and the Shinuchi Enchanted Blade, as well as the broader implications for the Rakuzaichi auction and the ongoing power struggles within the story.

Stay tuned for this exciting chapter, and be sure to catch it on your preferred Shueisha-affiliated platform to see how the saga unfolds.
