So I re-read the Chapter to refresh over the break, and I noticed something I missed two weeks ago.
On the last page, it looks like Kiku's sword is bloody. At first I thought it was Kaido's sword, but it's definitely not. The next panel shows Kiku crying.
I mean, I can see Kanjuro losing. After all, he was up against 7 of his old pals, and only had nameless fodder on his side. Still, I would hate to see this fight off-paneled like that if Oda decides not to show the fight.
