 The Buddha's Palm

Mission Start Text

"One of my companions, Usui no Sadamitsu, is a man of faith. After hearing that yokai had appeared in the temple housing the Great Buddha statue, he headed there on the double. However faith alone is not enough-- it seems he is in need of some extra manpower. I imagine this will prove little trouble for you, so lend him a hand , would you."

Mission End Text

"Ha ha ha! A giant toad, you say? Ah yes, once he lays eyes on someone with potential, he won't let them go without putting them to the test. So it was all Sadamitsu's scheme and he even enlisted the services of his old friend. Well, that calculating mind of his saved us countless times, so I should not complain. Still, I shall warn Sadamitsu to keep the deceit to a minimum, lest he incurs the punishment of the Buddha. In the meantime, I ask that you forgive him."
