The Elusive Samurai is another manga by Yusei Matsui, who is also the creator of The Assassination Classroom. The manga has been published in Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump since 2021. Viz Media is publishing it in English, describing the story:

After the massacre of his family by the traitor Ashikaga Takauji, Tokiyuki flees with the help of a handful of loyal retainers who have also survived the purge. One of them is Suwa Yorishige, an ally of the Hojo clan and lord of Suwa Province. The slightly odd Yorishige also claims to be clairvoyant and foretells that Tokiyuki will one day become the ruler of Japan. But for the moment, escaping from enemy territory is the priority!
