So Souza Samonji and Hasebe are there. Then it's a must watch.

Wonder if now that Hachisuka is there they will add Nagasone, dying to see both of them interact.

Just letting you know these should be "Mutsunokami" rather than "Mutsunoka", "Namazuo" rather than "Hamazuo", and "Yamanbagiri" rather than "Yamanbakiri".

Also not sure if it was seen on the previous announcement's post, but the names are also in the "First Last" name format since they are sword names and not human.
