In episode one, it has been revealed that Musashi made a promise to Kojirou Kanemaki, his friend, that when they grew up, they would become samurai and fight demons. But now, it seemed that the promise would be hard to fulfill as the demons are praised by society.
Samurai are considered taboo and are disgraced. To survive, Musashi must blend into society and work as a miner. He hid his training to improve his swordsmanship. His friend, Kojirou, decided to give up their promise. This changed when he saved Musashi from a near-death experience. The two then decided to continue their promise and planned to restore the image of the samurai.
