    • Seikuu: The samurai have thrown their swords away, so I threw away swordsmithing as well.

    • Misao: A swordsmith who focused on forging swords that could kill also made a reverse-blade sword that couldn't kill? That doesn't make any sense! Okina: If you were to examine a man's entire life, you would see that it's full of contradictions. Right, Mr. Himura? (Kenshin doesn't answer as they keep walking.)

    • (After Okina shares information about the makers of the reverse blade sword.) Kenshin: Thank you, but it will be dangerous for you to travel with me during broad daylight. Okina: Mr. Himura, your opponent is Shishio. He'll find us sooner or later, no matter what. Shall we go? Kenshin: Sir Okina! Okina: Mr. Himura, you'll be fighting Shishio and his men for the sake of the people of this country. You must stand firm and look forward at all times. That is the path a man of justice should take. (suddenly raises hand and flashes the victory sign) HOW WAS THAT? PRETTY GOOD , HUH? (cackles wildly) Misao: (to Kenshin) Gramps may be a little silly sometimes but don't let that fool you.

    • Okina: Everyone here was a part of the Oniwaban group. And each one of them is perfectly capable of taking care of defending herself or himself. Kenshin: But, sir. Okina: I won't take no for an answer, Mr. Himura. And Misao can take care of herself too since I'm the one who raised her. Kenshin: I guess you're the type that likes to talk and not listen. Okina: (laughs) That's most certainly true.

    • Little Boy: Shake hand, shake hand. (Kenshin smiles and shakes the boy's hand)

    Notes (2)

    • The Sakasa Kuchu Noutou means Reverse In-Air Sword-Sheathe. Chou performs this with the Seiku's son, Iori, on the sheath, as a means to get Seiku to tell him the location of Shaku Arai's final masterpiece sword.

    • Katanagari, Chou's nickname, literally means Sword-Hunter. Chou likes to collect rare and strange swords.
