Kagurabachi: Chapter 18

Kagurabachi is the latest Shonen Jump offering with much potential and a decent following amongst the publisher’s fanbase. It’s fairly new having just released in late September of 2023, but offers a compelling revenge tale centered around the action and fantasy genre. 

Currently, in the Sorcery and Enchanted Blade story arc, our tale follows Chihiro. He’s a young swordsmith who spends his days training under his famous swordsmith father, Kunishige. One day, a group of evil sorcerers called the Hishaku arrive, murder Kunishige, and steal his enchanted blades, leaving Chihiro to wallow in misery.

Now older and experienced, Chihiro teams up with his father’s old companion Shiba, and seeks revenge against the Hishaku.

How Many Chapters Will Kagurabachi Have?

Since the manga’s in its early stages, it likely won’t be ending anytime soon. It’s safe to assume this one will be around for a long time.

What Happened In Chapter 17?

In Kagurabachi Chapter 17, Chihiro squares off with Sojo. Then we cut to an unrealistic scene involving Chihiro and Sojo having tea and dango together. During this session, Sojo brings up Rokuhiro and Chihiro’s affiliation with him. Chihiro tells Sojo he should forfeit control over Cloud Gouger, but Sojo refuses. Sojo believes the tools were made to cause chaos. Additionally, he’s not willing to back down from his beliefs and we return to his fight with Chihiro in the present. 

Sojo slices off one of Chihiro’s arms but realizes Chihiro’s has become faster due to his high-speed lightning technique. Back to the imaginary realm, Chihiro tells Sojo he’s not the only one who can speak for Rokuhiro. In the present, Sojo examines Chihiro’s technique and attempts to find a solution to combat it. In the unrealistic realm, Chihiro contemplates his father’s words about the sacred blades. Then, he tells Sojo he’s willing to accept the fact that they can speak on Rokuhiro’s behalf. 

However, he doesn’t plan to let Sojo walk away from this duel freely. After a few more clashes, the chapter ends with Chihiro seemingly defeating Sojo and breaking Cloud Gouger.
