Part 18: Episode 18: :durahan:

We're going to resurrect a monster with nothing but 81 TONS OF PURE AMERICAN PRIDE! BOOYA!

We got a ghost samurai. Not very American, but I'm not one to look a samurai ghost in the mouth.

I can depend on him to fight. Which is good, because I don't think he can do much else with that huge-ass sword. Maybe gardening? Possibly, but it's better suited to hacking up dudes. Now what can I name a samurai warrior demon?

This works. In hindsight, I should've gone with Ghost Dog. Live and learn, I suppose. Let's head to the ranch!

Indeed he is. Let's learn about the Durahan breed.

So how does he fare in training? Let's find out by making him kick logs.

That's not bad for a newborn undead suit of samurai armor.

Augh! Don't ever make that face again! Please, for the love of all that's holy!

Hi Sapphire! What a pleasant surprise!

I just brought your invitation to a new battle to be held this winter.

A new battle? What's it called?

It's the Icicle Festival, a Grade A Battle to be held in the 2nd week of December.

The Icicle Festival... What a beautiful name.

It's not the monsters that make me shudder in this case, I assure you.

We'll be ready!

If you manage to win the Icicle Festival, you'll be...


Biiiiiitch! Fine. I guess we'll have to pump up Samanosuke and send him to war. Suggestions on how to pump him up are welcome.
