"It's an honor to fight with you again Takeda. I'm sorry that we were to busy to say this earlier but...the villagers, my men and I are glad that you decided to help us fight the mysterious enemy that attacked our village. And if you are willing, we would be honored if you decide to help us when the time comes to take back our village."
Takeda bowed to Akagi. Even though he was his friend too, Takeda did not feel as if the samurai had abandoned him. He always knew Akagi would return to his village, and was honored at how much he helped the Leaf village.
"It would be an honor to assist you in that Akagi," Takeda said.
