    'Demon Kai' being a pun on Makai and the Kai province is pretty good.

    At some point did they make it so that during an event the profile of a Servant "related" to it always appears during the first loading screen of the game or has this been the case for a long time?
    Okita, Saito, Hijikata, Maou Nobu, Mori and Ranmaru X have appeared among all the times I have started the game today

    Story Summary - Chapter 2: Nice Kai

    --- Arrow 1 ---

    Back with Okita and Saito, they're still fighting Genji from Overwatch. Not only is he very strong, but he's also gotten some backup. Saito and Okita manage to take out the backup with well-coordinated teamwork, but the big guy swats them away on his own like it's nothing. And then it finally clicks for them. That power, that dual-sword style, that aggression in his form. There is only one person this could be: Hattori Takeo, of the
    goryo-eji
    imperial mausoleum guard
    . However, this is not the way they remember him. Sure, he had some armor in the past, but there were no spikes or horns or anything. Hattori says that the armor isn't the only thing that's changed. He then turns to his now-wounded backup, who is apologizing for being unable to help, but Hattori simply says that just by their being here, they are so much stronger.

    "You won't escape your wounds. So become my flesh and blood so that we can fulfill our goal here," he says, as he seemingly absorbs the lowly soldier. Green energy bursts out from inside the armor, as he says a passing prayer for the soldier who is now no more.

    He says this is all for the sake of getting revenge for acts of the past. He may have been taken by surprise back then, but this time he's fully prepared, and there's no chance of him losing against the two of them.

    [Battle against <Hattori Takeo> with solo Okita & Saito]

    --- Arrow 2 ---

    The two of them are still in awe at the sheer strength of their oppponent. Hattori says that it's the souls of his comrades that are flowing through his body, and their regret granting him added strength. That is to say, that soldier wasn't the first person he had absorbed. Okita is about to say something about this, but Hattori says they of all people have no right to talk about betraying one's own comrades. And now they will pay for the lives of his friends taken on that day.

    Cut to Gudao and company, who are now being changed by a crowd of chibi Nobbus in cars on the road.

    Them being here isn't all that surprising, but it does tell you something: Nobunaga is alive, and presumably not far. As the nobbus start catching up,
    Firefly
    Hotaru
    tells you to take the wheel, which is apparently fine because you spent the summer learning to drive(?). She then leaps out of your car, and lands on the hood of the frontmost pursuer. The nobbu scolds her for planting her dirty feet on the hood that they washed just yesterday!
    Firefly
    Hotaru
    takes aim, fires at the car, and leaps to the next one as the one before spins out and crashes. She repeats this, being told this is excessive road rage each time. You step on the gas to give yourself enough distance to set up an attack front for when the rest of the cars catch up, so that you can avoid leaving
    Firefly
    Hotaru
    behind. She says you should've just gone ahead, as good-natured people like that won't make it far, but Kagetora won't have any of that, so now you fight the rest of the nobbus.

    [Battle against <Dry Nobbu x9>]

    --- Arrow 3 ---

    Having gotten off the road for now, you take a well-earned break with
    Firefly
    Hotaru
    providing tea and food. Meanwhile, you have a talk about some stuff. For one, how well-maintained the roads in this area are. Turns out that's all thanks to Imagawa. Actually, there being roads across the whole area is all thanks to him. You ask what his actual goal with all this is, and
    Firefly
    Hotaru
    explains it's all to build a strong people, and a strong country. He plans to strengthen select people with magic to turn them into powerful super-soldiers, and they're using the slogan "magify the country, strengthen the army" to promote the idea. TL note (which Kagetora actually points out): 富国強兵 is a meiji-era slogan which translates to "enrich the country, strengthen the army". Here, Imagawa has once again inserted 魔 into any word he can, making it 魔国強兵.

    Basically, it'll be a country where the strong are always in the right and the weak have no right to complain. Because of that, many will even volunteer to become soldiers, since it's kill or be killed. To Imagawa himself, being weak is almost like a sin, or a crime. His policies are especially hard on children, who based on a grading of their individual qualities either have to become soldiers or slaves.

    As you make your way further into the forest, getting closer to Kai, you're ambushed by nobbu drivers once again, and they've brought soldiers this time. Kagetora's wounds still haven't healed, and she's not fit for fight, so
    Firefly
    Hotaru
    starts shooting and tells you to book it out of here if you don't want to be hit by a stray bullet. Supporting Kagetora on your shoulder, you move as fast as you can, when suddenly another car pulls up in front of you, and someone gets out.

    Kagetora immediately tries to attack him, but he easily evades, saying she's too slow. He says you're not getting through here, and will have to go somewhere else. Your opponent now is Takeda.

    --- Arrow 4 ---

    This is Harunobu, or Takeda Shingen, the Tiger of Kai.
    Firefly
    Hotaru
    have caught up with you, with soldiers not far behind. The soldiers thank Takeda for his cooperation in managing a pincer maneuver. According to them, Imagawa and Takeda are in an alliance. Kagetora wonders if he's just here to settle old rivalries, but Takeda is pretty dismissive of this in general. He says that he came here because he heard the god of war herself was here, but now that he's here it seems like a total waste of time. With a single blow, he knocks Kagetora far away. She calls out to
    Firefly
    Hotaru
    to take you to safety, but...of course, she's also with the enemy?

    Takeda explains that during Imagawa's Holy Grail Rebellion, the Saika Ikki ran rampant as his mercenaries. Actually, according to Takeda this is really common knowledge here, so how is it even that you spent all this time with her and didn't even know that? However,
    Firefly
    Hotaru
    herself tells you that while, yes, she did fight for Imagawa, it's not like she was tricking you. Kagetora attempts to summon her horse to at least get you out of here, but it seems she's far too weak to do even that right now. She instead asks if Shinpachi was also with Takeda, to which he doesn't reply. She then says that if this has to do with their old rivalry then it should stay between them, and gudao should be left out, but Takeda just tells her to shup up for a second, striking her unconscious. A soldier approaches her body, giving praise to Takeda, but is suddenly knocked back. "Didn't you hear me? You're not getting through here, go somewhere else".

    The soldier is furious. They were allies, he can't do this! Takeda simply says that "oh right, the alliance. It's annulled", and tells the soldier to scram. The soldier says Takeda is only one man, and sends the nobbus to take care of him. However, as soon as they get close to his fancy, red car, they are immediately impressed and just straight up change side. They've all got the best colored cars, after all. Takeda says betrayals and the sort are just everyday business around here now, and with that the soldier runs off to inform his lord of the happenings.

    Takeda turns to you, recognizing you as Chaldea's Master, saying you need to talk. The two of you, Takeda and Chaldea, need to form an alliance. "An alliance to stop Kenshin."

    Cut to some sort of prison, where Hijikata wakes up in a cell. Hattori talks to him from outside the cell, saying it's impressive to maintain one's Saint Graph after taking a blow from Imagawa. Hijikata recognizes Hattori by his voice, but when demanding to see his face, Hattori refuses. He says this is his guise now, and that's that. Hijikata asks what Hattori's doing here, to which he replies there is only one, and has only ever been one, reason for him doing anything. Just then, another person appears.

    The mysterious new person greets Hijikata by his title of deputy chief, then turns to Hattori to ask how he's doing. Hattori says not to worry, that he's fine, but the man says that it's important to make sure of these things. After all, not even Imagawa himself emerged unscathed against the Demon Lord of the Sixth Heaven. It'll take some time for the new magic to take effect, he says, and he's been very busy with this. Hijikata now seems to recognize the man.

    "It's been a long time since you met your old friend, Ito," he says.

    I'm guessing that's referencing them getting a driving license to drive Summer Bagekko's fire truck in her NP.

    Also, it seems there will be two Kenshins here at least, kinda like Nobbu in Gudaguda 4.

    Keep in mind there's also point locks too. You need 60K points to advance to the next story section for example.

    Well, Hotaru means "firefly". So I guess either is fine?

    Yep, we just got a glimpse of the Servant in the trailer, drawn by Takeuchi.

    Edit: Also, Kagetora with new clothes. She looks good in them, hopefully it's at least a costume.

    I feel like we might actually get Takeo Hattori, considering he has a completely different ascension ready:
