What makes a man a samurai? His body, his blade or his spirit? Kyo makes one final attempt to stop Kyoshiro from taking his body and Yuya away, but Kyoshiro's power and an interference from Hishigi prevent him from doing so.
Meanwhile, Hotaru, Benitora, Akira and Shinrei are traveling through Tokito's territory, trying to reach the captive Bontenmaru. But traveling through Tokito territory is not without risk, and the group soon finds itself at the mercy of Yuan's brother Anthony!
