Sarai-ya Goyou – 09

「お助けに参る」 (Otasuke ni Mairu)
“I’ve Come to Rescue You”

After deciding to save Matsu on his own last time and making good on it here, Masa has all of a sudden become a samurai beaming with confidence. However, the one thing that everyone can probably live without is his tendency to say whatever’s on his mind, especially now that they’ve learned Yagi is the chief of the local Kitamachi police.

Sarai-ya Goyou – 08

「恩人が二人いる」 (Onjin ga Futari Iru)
“Two People I’m Indebted To”

A rivalry between candle businesses that gets ugly. It may not sound like much, but when Matsu gets caught trying to steal back some some wooden passes that the Kiku-ya store owner needs to do business, the House of the Five Leaves doesn’t sit idly. Of all people, Masa takes the initiative.
