    • Mystery
      Season 1 - Episode 10
      This is the same time line as episode 9, so Tetsunosuke and Tatsunosuke are still out on the errand for Hijikata.

      Yamanami watches Hijikata as he trains himself. Yamanami apologizes to Hijikata for opposing him all the time and wanted to be demoted to an accountant. Even though he held the highest martial arts rank, he said that after the incident with Serizawa Kamo (He was the Chief of the Shinsengumi until he was ordered to be assassinated. Read the history section for more details), his sword became rusted. Hijikata argued that him, Souji, and Kondo all had a part in the incident and their sword didn't become rusted. It is because Yamanami didn't want to do it in the first place; Hijikata forces him to draw his sword and insists that he can kill again. Yamanami became angry and threw his sword down, he opposes the way Hijikata run things, and anything that gets in the way gets killed. He doesn't want to be manipulated by Hijikata anymore.

      The scene flashes back to the night they assassinated Kamo, even at that time Yamanami questioned the decision to kill Kamo. Hijikata's reasoning's as black and white as ever, you use a person when the person is useful, if the person gets in the way and you kill him.

      Tetsunosuke and Tatsunosuke came back from their errand and brought back Hijikata's parcel. Tetsunosuke wanted to know what's in the box but Hijikata wouldn't tell him. Later Souji walked into the room and found out that Hijikata's making medicine for fatigue since he uses to be a medicine salesperson.

      The mysterious person who raised the dead in episode 4 is named Furube. He apparently serves a master but in reality is manipulating him. He summoned a Hikagami and sent him to the Shijyo River.

      Back at the Shinsengumi Headquarters, while Souji tried Hijikata's medicine, a soldier reported that roshis attacked one of the Shinsengumi squads by the Shijyo River. Hijikata and Souji went to investigate. Yamanami went with Saitou. Hijikata and Souji fell into the magic of Furube and couldn't move as the Hikagami attacked them. Yamanami tried to save them but got brushed aside. Saitou detected that Furube was controlling the Hikagami and attacked him instead. Furube retreated with the Hikagami.

      Saitou guess that Furube is a master of Mikkyou techniques, which are esoteric Buddhist spiritual teachings. So the Hikagami is not a ghost, but a man. Furube took control of the weakest part in his mind after confusing him. Yamanami said that if that should happen to him, Hijikata need to kill him without hesitation.moreless

Susumu was investigating recent fires that were being set, when Hijikata came to the conclusion that Yoshida was behind the fires and that he was the one organizing the Choshu in the revolution. While being punished by Hijikata for joining the training without permission, Tetsunosuke heard noises in the courtyard. He then saw Souji facing off with another person whom he thought was a Choshu spy. The person fought equally with Souji, and Tetsunosuke found out from Shinpachi and Sano that the person is actually Saitou who is the Captain of the 3rd Squad. Eager to learn more about the person who could fight equally with Souji, Tetsunosuke followed Saitou around the city. He learned that Saitou could see and feel the presence of dead people. He mentioned that Tetsunosuke had a shadow following him, but he could not talk to it because it is not amongst the dead, but was amongst the living. When Tetsunosuke returned to the Shinsengumi Headquarters, he was punished by Hijikata again for leaving without permission and abandoning his duties and his former punishment. So he is now punished to not have dinner and stand guard outside all night. As he was standing watch, he saw Saitou leaving and decided to follow him. Saitou was attacked by a group of people, but easily defeated them. But a mysterious figure reanimated the corpses and started attacking Saitou again. Susumu saw the mysterious person on a roof and attacked him, but he escaped. With the mysterious person gone, the corpses once again became just corpses.

Tetsunosuke then tells Saya that his father spoke a strange foreign language (English) and because of it, a xenophobic faction murdered him. Tetsunosuke's mother was also killed, leaving only him and his brother. He then learned that Saya's parents were also murdered and asked her if she felt like killing the people who killed her parents. Rambling on, he told her that the reason why he joined the Shinsengumi is to get stronger and get revenge on his parents, but he couldn't do it just by doing chores all day, and he doesn't want to kill people just to get stronger. He doesn't want to become a demon and doesn't know what to do. Saya wrote on the ground, "Stay the way you are" and Tetsunosuke snapped. He doesn't want to stay weak forever. Saya got angry with him and ran off. Back at the Shinsengumi head quarters, Kondo, Hijikata, and Yamanami are at a meeting talking about the Choshu, Yamanami doesn't want Tetsunosuke to be involved with the Shinsengumi fearing that he would get hurt. Hijikata declared that he intend to keep Tetsunosuke as his page forever. But Kondo, while talking to Yamanami said that he actually intends to give Tetsunosuke a uniform and some equipment, but it will still be Tetsunosuke's choice whether he wants to official join.moreless

During the match, Tetsunosuke asked Souji why did he choose to pick up the katana to fight and why does he want to be strong. Tetsunosuke, despite how much he wants to avenge his parents; he could not bring himself to kill a person.

Souji explained to Tetsunosuke the code of the Samurai states that falling in the hand of the enemy is inexcusable. In a fight, either you or your enemy must die. But a page doesn't have to abide by the code, so Tetsunosuke won't be put to danger. But this is a decision that Tetsunosuke must choose for himself.
