Unlock Description Translation
Default 江戸柳生最強の剣士の一人。



One of the strongest swordsmen of the Edo Yagyuu.

A demon of rationality that gazes at everything with a reasoning of ice, unswayed by emotion.
Methodology equals rationality; in other words, by mastering the sword, everything will naturally be fulfilled without any futility---

Never speaking of his passions, he does not become impetuous or impatient.
Thoroughly carries out the optimal, shortest measures in order to achieve an objective with the utmost coolness. A man of ice and steel who is reliable as an ally, but extremely terrifying once he becomes an enemy.

Source: Historical Fact
Region: Japan
Alignment: Lawful ・ Neutral
Gender: Male
It has been recorded that the Third Shogun・Iemitsu would call Munenori by the nickname “Ryutan”. A nickname formed by taking one kanji character each from “Yagyuu” and “Tajima”.

Bond 2 柳生石舟斎の子にして柳生十兵衛の父として知られる、剣の天才。



A genius of the sword known as the child of Yagyuu Sekishuusai and the father of Yagyuu Jubei.

It has been said that, during the siege of Osaka (1615 AD), he protected the Shogun Hidetada by cutting down seven warriors in an instant.
After his death, Shogun Iemitsu extolled him as “peerless in swordsmanship”.

A strategist and politician. Not only he instructed many daimyou and their younger relatives in the Shinkage-ryuu, but also sent his disciples to serve influential daimyou as swordsmanship intructors.
In historical novels and historical plays, he is often regarded as an extraordinary plotter.
This is probably out of the notion that, in the early Edo period, it would be impossible to raise the Yagyuu clan up to a social position of a Daimyō with 12,500 koku just by being honest and upright.

Bond 3 先読みに長け、島原の乱の拡大をいち早く見抜いていたとも語られる。



With excellent foresight, it has been said that he quickly saw through the expansion of the Shimabara Rebellion.

In the 14th year of the Kan'ei era (1637 AD), right after news of a rebellion by Christian believers arrived, Munenori frantically tried to hold back Itakura “Naizen-no-Kami” Shigemasa, who was tasked with leading a punitive expedition. It has been said that, when asked why by Shogun Iemitsu, Munenori answered “religious wars are always a serious matter” and “Mr. Shigemasa will likely die in battle”.

The situation progressed as Munenori predicted. Shigemasa - a daimyou of 15,000 koku - was lacking in strength despite leading all the western daimyou and found himself forced into a hard fight as a result. As he saw the situation turning grimmer, Shogun Iemitsu dispatched his chief vassal, Matsudaira Nobutsuna, to act as supreme commander, but Shigemasa became impatient upon learning that, and attempted an assault on the enemy camp before Nobutsuna arrived, dying tragically in the process.

Bond 4 新陰流:A++



Shinkage-ryū: A++

Has completely studied the secrets of the Yagyuu Shinkageryuu.
From infancy until he was 24 years old, Munenori was raised while learning about the sword directly from his father, Munetoshi (Sekishuusai).
Being endowed with over A Rank in this skill, Munenori possesses not only sword techniques, but also resistance to mental attacks. An expert of the Shinkage-ryuu - which views zen meditation as indispensable - has no doubts and never hesitates.

Bladeless State: A
A secret elucidated by Yagyuu Sekishuusai, first devised by the master swordsman Kamiizumi Nobutsuna.
It is said that, even without holding a blade, an expert of the Shinkage-ryuu wins over an armed opponent.

Kenjutsu Musou・Kenzen Ichinyo.
Be free while possessing an unshakable heart---
The deepest level of the sword that Buddhist priest Takuan once spoke of having, finally, achieved perfection within Yagyuu Munenori.
A sword shows its true worth in the threshold of life and death, while Zen reaches enlightenment during meditation.
The single sword brandish of kenzen ichinyo, released from a state of being free from worldly thoughts, accomplishes sure-kill while being just a single attack.

Extra 生前、宗矩は武蔵の存在を非難したという逸話がある。宗矩は「武蔵は西軍の者」「徳川の敵」という旨の言葉を述べた、と。



There are anecdotes of Munenori having criticized Musashi’s existence during his lifetime. He said things such as “Musashi is a member of the Western Army” and “an enemy of Tokugawa”.

In his lifetime, Munenori never clashed with nor even met Musashi, but was in fact mindful about him---
or so has been established in this work. Thus, he was fixated with showdown with Musashi during the “Seven Contests of Master Swordsmen Heroic Spirits”. Despite knowing that she was a different person than the “Miyamoto Musashi” from his own world.

The Munenori who was summoned to Chaldea as a Heroic Spirit has recognized Musashi’s skills and way of being. As for what he thinks of the “Miyamoto Musashi” of his own world... that remains unknown for now.

April Fool   Swordmaster-Type Servant

A really powerful samurai. You can tell he's the mastermind of some evil plot just by looking at him. His movements are wonderfully simple and precise, but all that sitting down and standing up is making me anxious.
