Before the official release of Kagurabachi Chapter 40Spoilers have appeared on the Internet that reveal the content of the upcoming part. The spoilers for Kagurabachi Chapter 40, titled “A Fraction,” were recently released and were no disappointment.

The chapter then shows a flashback where Shiba surmises that the Shinuchi Blade was auctioned off for the Kamunabi to buy. Since they had attempted to steal the blade, they needed its power and had to kill its original user first. However, the original user was locked away safely by the highest authorities of the Kamunabi. Shiba claims that if the blade were to fall into the hands of the Kamunabi, it would cause internal conflict and give the Hishaku the perfect opportunity to end the user's life.

The protagonist then remembers his father's words that the Shinuchi is an anomaly and is therefore more carefully guarded than the other magic blades. The chapter also reveals that Chihiro has never seen the box inside.

According to the spoilers, one must have the correct biometric signature to break the seals placed by Kamunabi. However, Chihiro believes that it is possible to break the seal by analyzing its formula. While Shiba praises the plan, he reveals that it would take an experienced wizard at least ten years to do it.

Elsewhere, the Hishaku leader is seen talking privately with someone. He reveals that he has been doing everything he can to open the Shinuchi Box in three years. The partner asks if it's okay to let Kyora use the blade. However, he clarifies that it's a risk to use the blade if the original user is still alive. This means that Kyora was used as a guinea pig to see if he could tease out Shinuchi's power.

After the revelation, the chapter returns to Kyora and Chihiro. The latter is stunned by Kyora's sudden appearance. His right eye is darkened as he stands lifeless, holding the Shinichi Blade in its sheath. However, his condition worsens as blood begins to drip from his eyes and he begins to chant Magatsumi.

A vortex of blood forms beneath Kyora's feet, and then mysterious flowers begin to bloom. Suddenly, a giant butterfly flies towards the blade and turns into a large bloody figure, after which Kyora reveals that he cannot remove Shinichi from the sheath.

Meanwhile, Chihiro is stunned by Kyora's shocking appearance as she charges at him with the blade in its sheath. Chihiro dodges, realizing that the blade can still cut in this form. Elsewhere, Hakuri is seen overwhelmed by the strain of using the warehouse for so long. The spoilers end with a highlight of Hiyuki's appearance.
