In episode 2, the worldbuilding of Orient continued. The episode now focused on Kojiro’s flashback to let viewers learn more about the said character. It greatly emphasized that the demons are controlling everything by manipulating people so it will be hard for Musashi and Kojiro to achieve their plan. Will this stop the duo?
The previous episode showed that the option would be unlikely. Musashi and Kojiro faced a gigantic red Kashini. Musashi taught that a simple slice from his pickaxe would do the trick but he was wrong. The Kashini regenerated. While this was happening, Musashi saw that the villagers were praising Kashini and even gave it gold bars to eat. The protagonist now wonders what that means, and how could it have an impact on the demons.
