It shows the player that perhaps she’s not as bad as she comes off and there may be a way to reason with the side of her that cares about other people. That’s a good perspective to have because Yomi, Hikage and Mirai are all open to the idea and are upset at their rival’s assassination orders for the same reasons Homura was. The way Kagura and Naraku trust no one and are being targeted by the youma reminds Homura’s team of themselves before joining Hebijo, and like Hebijo gave them a chance, they want to give Kagura and Naraku a chance.

It’s great for them of course, but it goes to show how dire the situation is that the government is so desperate for help that they’re employing renegades, who are supposed to be targeted by good and evil shinobi alike, and for such an absurdly high pay rate. They get all that money for just one youma, no matter how small, so after a few dozen (like they’ve already killed) they could have the equivalent of half a million dollars.

|Her screaming was her battle cry, no doubt inspired by Hideaki Kobayakawa.|
