Mission Start Text
"Watching you take down that monstrosity, it's clear that you have some skill but also that you are self-taught. There's only so much you can learn on your own.
But luckily for you, I've found just the teacher for you. None other than the master of the blade, Tsukahara Bokuden himself. I was just as surprised as you, believe me."
Mission Complete Text
"Hmm, I had heard that you fight like a demon, Hide, and it would seem that you live up to your reputation.
Recently there has been a relentless surge of yokai coming into this world. As a humble priest, I have cut down many malicious yokai in my travels, but I cannot stem the tide alone. Should you wish to increase your chances of survival out there in the battlefield, then I shall take up my odachi and gladly teach you the way of the warrior."
