Musashi’s Rival! Master Swordsman Sasaki Kojirou!
The fourth generation master swordsman who duelled Miyamoto Musashi upon the shores of Ganryuu Island more than 90 years ago.
Before their lineage was broken by Miyamoto Musashi through defeat on the island of Ganryuu, generations of her family had polished their swords skills at their ancestral school. Despite a changing of the head of school she applied many times to match her might against the legendary Miyamoto Musashi. This dream has not yet been realised…
Surprisingly however, the two have become fast friends and while maintaining a rivalry it seems the two have a few shared interests. They’ve even gone so far as to train together and occasionally take a joint shopping trip!
According to Musashi, who was scolded for sleeping in, the last three masters of the school were a little more strict, but still kind to those in need.
However after learning of the existence of Miyamoto Musashi, a swordsman of inhuman talents through the diary of first Kojiro, and the stories of the second and third (her grandmother and her mother) the 4th Kojirou was driven crazy.
She has been wandering the land looking for Musashi to challenge her to a fight, and they finally met in Onigashima. She considers the defeat of Musashi her reason for living, and thinks about little else besides Musashi and swordsmanship.
She has no interests outside of swordsmanship and defeating Musashi Miyamoto, however she has taken enough of an interest in our protagonist to remember their face at the least.
