Yea, Matahachi's mom is dead. Hopefully that makes him a better man. Who was the old man? An wow. Kojiro's senpai. Wonder if Musashi will fight em. Too bad he's in bad condition right now.

Oh my gawd, what a twister! This whole time Matahachi was telling a story and i'm betting my biscuits that the little boy had some sort of relation to Musashi. D: I dunno if I like this twist.

Amazing!! so the old man was Matahachi telling stories about Musashi & Kojiro, Itto shows up in front of Musashi in bad shape but more importantly! where is Muso????

Next time talk about Musashi's story not ojii-san's!

I think he's related to Matahachi, that kid.

I hated the Matahachi thing, It’s like watching Forest Gump. I don’t like to know beforehand how things it’s going to end, and now we already know that Matahachi is gonna end up an old bum, but whatever, Takehiko maybe will shut my mouth in the next chapters (he was probably tired of a chronological development and decided to do an alternative one using flash-forward).

The only good thing is that we will see Musashi in action again (and yes, the kid is a Musashi with a lighter hair).

Pretty much sums up what I was thinking.

A twist after another twist.
Ittosai meets Musashi.

So what, the one of old Matahachi was a flashforward?

Interesting. He finally brings me around a bit to Matahachi, for the first time, he's not running away.

Don’t really like all the futur Matahachi thing...I’m waiting to see what will happen exactly and how Takehiko is going to use that but yeah first time I feel a bit disappointed by this manga.

That white haired kid that approached old Matahachi might be Musashi's son, they look kinda alike, but that's just my theory.
