  • Another great episode, Kenshin uses superior strategy to beat one of Shishiro's henchmen...

    What an awesome episode. Misao's part was really cool, I loved it when she was like my name is Misao and then she says she won't tell them what her name is... very funny. And then she took all of them out. That shows that she actually is pretty strong. Then when Eiji was actually going to kill him, I was like, wow, that kid really is hardcore. So anyway when it shows the story of Shishiro, that is pretty rough... not saying I understand what he thinks completely, but after going through that, I can understand why he hates the Meiji era so much. The fight between Kenshin and Senkaku was cool, Kenshin beat him so easily though! Well, superior episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Kenshin does a Ryu Sho Sen to defeat Senkaku he uses his left hand to push on the back of his blade. This would be okay with an ordinary sword, but with a sakabatou (reverse bladed sword) he would cut his hand.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (After Kenshin spared Senkaku's life)
      Saito: Someday showing mercy will get you killed.
      Kenshin: I don't kill in cold blood. Not for any reason.

    • Kenshin: Shishio, I can't allow anymore bloodshed just for your personal justice!

    • Misao: (To Eiji) What do you think of me now?

    • (Misao stands up.)
      Guard: Tell us who you are.
      Misao: Hmph. I, Misao Makimachi, see no compelling reason to give my name to villains like you!
      Guard: But didn't she just tell us her name?
      Misao: Ahh!!
      Eiji: (thinking) What are you doing, you idiot?
      Misa: I did, didn't I? Oooh, that was so dumb of me! Dumb, dumb, dumb!

  • NOTES (1)

    • In the English version, three of the four bad guys are played by the same voice actors who star in Cowboy Bebop.
      Shishio=Spike
      Yumi=Faye
      Senkaku=Jet

      The exception is Sojiro=Ed.
