Souichirou, Masataka, and the Wheel of fate
All I had to type was "Masataka" and people would flaunt over here. Anyways, I was thinking about this Wheel of Fate thing. Back when Masataka and Bunshichi fought Fu'Chien, I think Bunshichi was the one that said that he wasn't in the Wheel of Fate, but someone else said that he was at the hub of the wheel and Masataka wasn't in the wheel.
So now in the last three chapters, Souichirou told Masataka to smash this wheel of fate so he could be free before its too late. And from the ending of 111, Bunshichi is probably going to be out of any more fights. So if Bunshichi wasn't the hub holding the wheel together, did they want the wheel destroyed before anyone else died? Like Masataka is a backup plan in case Bunshichi couldn't hold it together? Thinking about it, Bunshichi has prevented a lot of people from dying ever since Shin and Mana's passing. If something terrible happens to him , then the only thing left to do is to change fate.

Well in all honesty, i wouldnt count bunshichi out just yet. He's not going to die from someone putting the squeeze on his spine. I dont know if he was so much the hub as he was the gear that connected everybody(i guess its the same thing) But as far as masataka i remember him telling bunshichi that if there was no place for him in the wheel of fate hed make his own. I think that he found his seat when he was talking to souichirou in the restaurant and he asked him to break up this shitty circle.
I was suprised at that moment; didn't think Souichiro would know of the Wheel of Fate in teh first place, unless he was influenced by Sohaku.
Even if so, I think the worst that could happen to Souichiro regarding the Wheel of fate is lose himself to Sohaku (he can just take his eye out and viola...).
Although I agree with you there: Masataka most likely was dragged into it in the conversation with Souichiro, although I still have no clue what Masataka is capable of; I still see him being able to destroy it.
I have definitely have the utmost respect for masataka, all of the warriors abilities in general, but mostly masataka (and bob).
I too have the utmost respect for Masataka's character, and I definitely think he has the abilities needed to smash the wheel of fate. Souichiro does seem to want this whole thing to come to an end, which given the suffering his mom has been put through because of it, I wouldn't blame him for it.
