Part 1: Core Storylines Of The Revenge Of The Soul Eater Novel
The legendary Mitsurugi household is the central focus of The Revenge Of The Soul Eater novel. The household has Shikibu Mitsurugi, the seventeenth-generation of sword saint, who is proud of Mitsurugi’s phantom blade style that should be bestowed from generation to generation.
Shikibu’s pride in his Mitsurugi heritage doesn’t stop at staying a mere status. Earlier parts in The Revenge Of The Soul Eater novel show that he instructs all of the family members and pupils to pass the trial ceremony once they reach 13 years old.
In The Revenge Of The Soul Eater, Sora Mitsurugi is supposed to be one of Shikibu’s sons. Since he’s unable to complete the trial, he has to face a dire punishment: To be banished from the Mitsurugi household.
As a result, his heir status falls to Raguna, his brother, who uses Sora’s fiancé to threaten and intimidate him. Upon their (supposedly) last encounters, Sora realizes his failure in defeating the dragon in the trial doesn’t lie in his inability to complete the ceremony or master the sword.
Instead, it’s all about his self-control and the correlation to his “shins” in The Revenge Of The Soul Eater. He wants to prove to everyone else that The Revenge Of The Soul Eater exists! Can he?
