We got to learn more about Master Yuki’s Master this episode.
Master Yuki was like “Momo. I went too far at Okinawa so to make up for it I’m inviting you out on a date.”
Momo was like “REALLY!? Wait…at 5:30 in the morning?”
There was a very noteworthy scene before this but I’ll let readers see for themselves.
At sunset Master Yuki showed Momo the ruins of Moryo’s first base and proceeded to tell her about her Master.
As we recall Yuki’s family ran a martial arts dojo. One day she was visited by Katrina and her soon to be Master Nagaho. She first wanted to test her potential partner’s combat skills…
…which Nagaho was happy to oblige. Oh yes, and this was of course before Yuki lost her left eye.
Yuki wanted to learn from Nagaho how she got so strong. Her secret was the love she had to protect the city. It gave her the strength to do all she could for it. She called it the Tsukikage Spirit.
All went well…until “THAT NIGHT”.
I guess it’s another one of those “girls losing their superpowers as they grow older” plot points. Not a fan in all honesty. Just because girls grow up doesn’t mean they should lose the ability to lift large buildings upon reaching adulthood.
After Nagaho made quick work of the old Moryo leader a familiar evil babe was eventually promoted to leader but not before facing off with our spunky Master in a duel where the sexy mistress of darkness got the scar she showed viewers. Then…IT happened.
We now know why Yuki fears the top of stairways.
Next time both sides will make their move and something bad will most likely happen to Yuki.
