  • Kenshin...naked? Also a little boy with bad shorts.

    Hah hah. Ok so the group (Kenshin, Yahiko, Kaoru, Sanosuke, and Megumi) go to visit Dr. Gensai's sister. Then, they meet the arrogant "little master" Yutarou (who also has the worst fashion sense, those shorts just make me go barf). Then he meets this evil guy who uses his sword for killing and stuff, and assumes him as his new sensei, which Kenshin disapproves stuff. So the group has fun (not to mention after Kenshin figuring out that they really are bad guys, I mean, Yutarou's new sensei is bad, Kaoru sees him naked... oh em gee...). So after fighting and stuff stupid Yutarou falls into a river making Kenshin lose his concentration and now he is trapped. I mean, at first I didn't like Yahiko, but seriously this guy is... ugh. Good episode though.moreless

    • Episode Title: Raijuta's Ambition
      The title of this episode is taken from a popular video game/board game known alternately as Shogun or Nobunaga's Ambition, as well as other titles. The game itself was a variation of the classic board game RISK, where players would bid to control the region.
      Nobunaga refers to Oda Nobunaga, a warlord of the late 1500's who activally sought to control Japan and for a short time, actually succeeded. He was assassinated and his minion, Toyotomi, took over, until Ieyasu Tokugawa completely unified Japan at the battle of Sekigahara in 1600.
