Chapter 102 of the Jigokuraku manga.
Summary[edit | edit source]
While at the Wood tanden, Chōbē and Tōma find themselves confronted by clones of Tao Fa that have emerged from the tanden, leading them to believe that the same is happening to every tanden that corresponds with the Tao attributes of Lord Tensen. The brothers then begin to ponder on whether they should make the choice of escaping with the other survivors or act on Jikka's secret plan of eliminating Shugen, Sagiri, and Shion in order for him to make a false report to the shogun that the two had died. After the clones partially transform into their Kishikai, Chōbē prepares to fight back but feels his body suffering from the Banko's effects on his Tao. He also senses that Tōma is gradually suffering from the Tao particles in the air and tries to think of a logical plan going forward. Having reviewed his options, Chōbē puts his faith in Tōma in killing Shugen and pushes himself in causing enough destruction until the others manage to destroy the other tandens. Meanwhile, Gabimaru and Sagiri are approached by Shija who has taken out the clones of Gui Fa.
