Bestowed upon by Japan’s native son. The successor of the sword. ALL. HAIL. SAMURAI. ASHI
Been wanting to do some thing like this for a while after watching the season. I took some time away from the divide and stepped outside the romance that was created by the fandom to really look at the story and honestly, it seems to be a story of generations and a story of children. I honestly think the most beautiful end to this story is for Jack and the Scotsman to rest and celebrate in a quest and life well lived and fought for and let their daughters take up the sword. I truly believe Ashi is now pure of heart and will be Jack successor.
What a beautiful and fitting way to end the series with people who watched it as kids now watching it with their own.
These last 3 episodes are truly the determining factor and I have faith it’s going to be a story of redemption, tragedy, and YES love. Maybe not the love story that’s preferred, but just as powerful.
