  • Ummm..random?

    A flashback episode that shows all of the characters from both the Iga and Koga clan before they were killed in this war. Not that there's anything wrong with flashback slice of life types of episodes, but this one had below average execution. The charm of seeing characters that we already know are dead still being developed is an underrated concept, but everything else outside of the beginning made the episode dull. The flashback in a flashback of Oboro and Gennosuke meeting as children felt pointless and lacking anything of significance. In the end you're left wondering, "what the hell did this episode try to accmplish?!"
