Alright, I don't have the time or energy to fully translate 108 right now, but I'll give you the key points in as much detail as possible.
#1. Baki has been training in hikikomori mode - he actually uses that word. He describes how his skin, muscles, etc are now considerably stronger. He intends to kill Musashi. He's talked to Yuujiro, who told him about Musashi's weird personality/behavior. Doppo is surprised by this; comments that there is usually only one survivor from a fight with Musashi. For some reason, Baki wants to fight/kill Musashi in a "pure match".
#2. Musashi abandoned the Pickle fight because he saw Pickle as infantile, but hard to break. Since Pickle doesn't pick up on the same social cues as everyone else, Musashi presumably just left when he realized Pickle wasn't going to fight him all-out. He makes an internal note about the purity of the fighters.
#3. Musashi has been reunited with his own *personal* swords, taken from his grave/place of death. Tokugawa sent someone to pick them up and personally bestows them unto Musashi, who thanks him deeply. Tokugawa dismisses the thanks, saying that they were Musashi's effects in the first place. As Tokugawa moves to hand the covered blades to him, the cords binding the swords' covers undo themselves, as if by their own volition. Musashi laughs to himself about it, and happily proclaims that the blades have undressed themselves to return to his side once more.
Where is Itagaki going with this? First it was about "real weapons", then it became about warfare, then it became about weapons in general (Motobe), then it went into the hand-acting-as-the-sword bit, and now it's back to "real weapons" again, I think.
And you guys don't know it yet, but Motobe is basically the designated "gatekeeper" for fighting Musashi now. That means that we may actually see a true, all-out Baki vs Motobe fight. How fucking hype are you for that? Infinite memes, infinite dreams.
