About Katanagatari Vol. 2:
Yasuri Shichika and the Stratagemist Togame have reached the middle of their katana collection journey. Realizing that Togame has so far succeeded, Princess Denial initiates countermeasures to simultaneously help and hinder the woman she hates the most in the world. The final few katana are held by even more fierce and even more dangerous foes, not to mention the Maniwa Ningun, who grow more and more desperate to reclaim their village's honor.
It is up to the power of Kyoto Ryu and Shichika to see this journey to its completion, conquering what the Old Shogun tried to accomplish with an army of thousands. His only weapons are his fists and Togame's always-devious stratagems.
