There is a calm bar scene, two men are talking and they seem worried about something. At that moment a group of thugs enter the bar with a girl who they are mistreating. An old man tries to help her but gets kicked to the ground.

Guts then enters the bar and kills the men sparing one so he can take a message to his master. He wants him to say the Black swordsman has come.
