I must say I like this manga. It is a good change for me. The reason I like the Japanese culture is mainly bc of their samurai. I think Kendo (in our time) comes close to that. Furthermore it is a weekly sounen, which also seems to get scanlated on a regular basis. I couldn't ask for more. I definitely looking forward to this.

I love how Yodaka just accepts that Sayuri is a ghost from the Edo period and starts fighting her But next week should be the start of the practice match!! I'm excited to see how Kurogane will do. Even I'm sure he'll be dominated, I'd like to think he will at least show some interesting skills, enough to impress Yodaka maybe.
Here we thought that Cloud Strife (sorry, I still don't remember his name >_<) was really strong, but seeing how Yodaka basically kept up with Sayuri.. anyway, Kurogane does have a chance to impress Yodaka (his eyes + he probably got at least a bit better in Sakura Sword Style and Yodaka should recognize the style), ofc he won't win anything...
I also look forward to others from that noble school, but seeing them, I don't think Kurogane's school can win even with the strategy to focus on 3 wins of weaker characters.
Actually I didn't like the fact that Yodake wasn't surprised of the Ghost. Didn't rly fit in well, considering that Sayuri is hiding her form from almost everyone in the manga, also Kurogano was surprised himself as he met her the first time. Seemed to me as if the author wasn't planning that well in advance. Maybe Im thinking too much.
Regardless good chapter. Im glad that we have already a ongoing strong "antagonist" (if u can call him that) in the story. Just like in OP with Mihwak. We have a advanced rival and a goal standing at the top, not to mention the art of the manga is great as well. Im seeing bright future for this series, I hope it gets popular.

I thought this person (Panel 2) was a female. Yet she was referred in chapter 14 as a male. I must say the fights are very short. Not that I complaining or anything, especially since I hate fights which needs longer than 2-3 chapters, but Im surprised at the pace. I wish the author would take more time developing and hyping the characters before the fights, it seems too rushed. The hyping of the monkey kid was for example fine though.
