The first episode of The Elusive Samurai introduces the world and its main character, Tokiyuki Hojo.

In 1333 Kamakura, a period when samurai culture emphasized martial arts, audiences were introduced to Tokiyuki, successor to the regent of the Kamakura shogunate.

Contrary to the expected samurai upbringing, Tokiyuki displayed a gentle nature and a strong aversion to conflict. This pacifism made him an outsider among his peers, earning him the label of a coward due to his lack of interest in martial arts training.

This episode showcased Tokiyuki’s extraordinary ability to evade capture, a skill he honed over years of avoiding training sessions.

The turning point came when Tokiyuki met the mysterious Suwa Yorishige, a priest said to have prophetic abilities. Suwa’s unexpected declaration—that Tokiyuki would become a hero who would shake the very foundations of Japan—shed new light on the young man’s future.

However, the episode ended with a shocking twist, leaving viewers hanging. Tokiyuki witnessed a brutal event that destroyed his life and forced him to take a drastic step – to escape in order to survive.
