The Real Inheritor

Hornets and Strategy is the eighth chapter in the Koukou tekken-den tough manga, and the eighth chapter in the series.


Mitsuhide is seen at Masakazu Naruse, grave where he promises never to raise a fist on to another human again. Kiichi however arrives, and begins to provoke, in order to pick a fight with him. Mitsuhide refuses as he does not want to kill someone again, Kiichi does not give up, and begins to antagonize Mitsuhide more, and accidentally hits a hornets nest, which ends up causing a swarm of hornets to come out. Both Kiichi and Mitsuhide use their skill in martial arts to fend off the hornets and Kiichi is finally able to convince Mitsuhide to fight. Mitsuhide then reveals he has been studying the same martial art Kiichi has, Nadashinkage. Kiichi now seems to only want to know, who the real inheritor of Nadashinkage is and who is just the imposter.
