Soul of the Sword returns with all my favourite characters.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Soul of the Sword returns with all my favourite characters. Suki's ghost is still hanging around and Lady Satomi has been murdered. Less darkness to have to deal with.

We see Okame and Daisuke's mutual attraction deepen and blossom for one another. Yumeko has kept the piece of the dragon scroll safe and is still on her way to the Steel Feather Temple to deliver it as she journeys with her friends. Reika, the temple maiden and Master Jiro are travelling with Yumeko to protect her.
The demon Hakaimono has been set free from the sword Kamigoroshi and possessed Tatsumi the demon slayer. Yumeko wants desperately to save Tatsumi.

Lord Genno the master of demons is in search of a body so that he may come back to life in the land of Iwagoto. The 3 witches messed up a necromancy spell having only Genno 's head without a body. Hakaimono thinks it hilarious but makes no promises to join forces with Genno.

Lady Hanshou and Lord Seigetsu are another story. Lord Seigetsu appears more like a puppet master pulling the strings behind the entire story. It is interesting to know he has so much power. So far it looks like he is a force for good and not evil but he's still a mystery.
