Ep.06 The steel katana 01
“How long are you going to make me wait!”
The one-eyed man made no attempt to hide his frustration and pretended as if he would leave at any moment.
“Mr.Takanobu, I’m sorry you had to come all the way here. I would like to ask for your kind cooperation. ”
Bowing his head, Sanjuro let Takanobu take his seat.
Among the leaders of the Samurai-Dan in formal wear, a man of medium height, medium build, and with a single eye stood out from the crowd wearing a tattered samue-like work clothes and tied hair.
As if in finality, Takanobu clears his throat and catches the gazes of the members who are looking at him.
A low, clear voice echoed from the back of the room.
“Long time no see.”
Kondo, the head of Samurai-Dan, calls out to Takanobu.
Takanobu turns his face away and responds with a snort.
“What’s your attitude! Don’t rude to Mr.Kondo!”
The newcomer captain chided Takanobu.
“Never mind. Go on.”
Kondo, without a care in the world, urged Sanjuro to continue his story.
“Well, yes, let's start by summarizing the steel katana….
‘The steel katana has a mysterious power.’
'It did not have this mysterious power from the beginning, but it has been manifested over the ages.’
‘Steel is a minor metal on Venus, Mars and other planets.’
‘Steel katana are kept and studied in the Armament Research and Development team as a top-secret of Bell country.’
‘The existing steel katana are those that have been handed down from generation to generation in the Bell country and those that were discovered in a collection of swords that were leaked in a spaceship crash a few years ago.’
…everyone understand so far?”
Unable to contain his curiosity, Harada leans forward and asks Sanjuro.
“You mean, the spaceship crash is the case before I joined the Samurai-Dan. As I remember, after that accident, a group of outlaws from other countries and outer space gathered to steal the treasure from the spaceship, and the security in this area deteriorated….. After I joined, heard the steel katana have mysterious powers but never actually seen those powers in action, so you’ll have to give me the proper details!“
