  • It was a filler... but I liked it:)

    9.8
    I took two points off cuz it was irrelevant to the main plot. Bleh, whatever. Otherwise, it was perfect. The whole plot of the train being taken was sure a little over-used in other animes and various shows, but with this show's light humor made it enojyable with some suspense included. Sanosuke's fear of trains and the taking of pictures made me laugh, the animation I felt was sorta misplaced in this anime, but was ok this once. The one thing that was weird (not bad, weird) was how Kenshin's horse jumped like 25 feet in the air... strange. So overall I really liked this episode, nice humour, action, suspense, all of that good stuff.moreless
  • Kenshin and his friends are on a train trip but bad theifs plan to steal the gold from the trains.

    I seen hundrens of episodes where the good guys ends up in a train robbery. The plot of the episode is somewhat predictable. The weird animation from 'To save a small life' is back in this episode. Sanosuke's fear of trains and fear of cameras started in this episode, which I found funny. One thing I found strange in this episode is that Kenshin is riding a horse that can jump 20 feet in the air and defeat all the train robbers. What a strange horse. I did enjoy this episode.moreless

    • Kaoru: (brightly) I've got it! How about we all take a photograph together? (noticing Sannosuke scooting away) And where are YOU going?
      Sannosuke: (simply) I'm not going to do that. That thing will suck out our souls.
      Kaoru: (exasperated) Would you stop saying that, I told you that was only a superstition!
      Sannosuke: (angry) It can't be just that! I heard it takes a year off every time you take a picture-- it's the tool of the devil!!

    • Sannosuke: (paranoid) I'm sure that there's something out there tryin to play a trick on us. When we wake up we'll find ourselves stuck in the sewers.
      Kaoru: (curtly) I don't think so.
      Sannosuke: (nervous) And no pictures for me. No way in hell! I heard that people say cameras suck away your soul- that's not a joke!
      Kaoru: (questionably) You still believe those superstitions?
      Sannosuke: (defensively) Then tell me this: how can such a huge thing like this be moving?!
      Kaoru: (frustrated) I told you before it's the power of steam!
      Sannosuke: (skeptical) But isn't steam just water vapor?! Are you stupid?? You think a kettle can move something as heavy as this big?!!
      Kaoru: (arguing) You're the one who's being stupid. Where do you see a kettle on this train?
      Sannosuke: (finally) Explain how this train's moving then?

    • Yahiko: Where's Sanosuke?
      Kaoru: He's still quivering in fear somewhere.

    • Kaoru: That was a close one.
      Sanosuke: I could've sworn I told you to stay out of this.

    • Kaoru: I wonder what's taking Yahiko and Kenshin so long to get back, it's getting kinda late.
      Sanosuke: Like I said before, they woke up, and were in a sewer.

    • Kenshin: Is there something bothering you?
      Yahiko: I just want to see the engine.

    • Sanosuke: I'm sure that there must be something out there playing a trick on us. When we wake up we'll find ourselves stuck in the sewers.
      Kaoru: I don't think so.
      Sanosuke: And no pictures for me... no way in hell!

    • Kaoru: It's so clean in here, I'm glad I payed the extra money so we could sit in this train. A little extravagance is nice now and then!

    • Sanosuke: Jeez, who was the one running around until right before we left?
      Kaoru: It's better to be safe than sorry, something that you should learn to appreciate!

    • Sanosuke: Those things are made by the devil. I've heard they take a year off every time you get you're picture taken.
      Kenshin: Well, it seems that I have managed to catch up. That I have.

    • Sanosuke: I think the fox and raccoon have pulled one over on us.

    • Sanosuke: Vapor from a kettle! Are you stupid?! You really believe a kettle can move something this big?
