    • Japanese Title: Rurouni Kenshin - SeisouHen (part 1)
      Originally aired in Japan on December 3, 2001.

    • First appearance of the adult Enishi Yukishiro, Kenshin's brother-in-law (in the manga, Kenshin and Tomoe were actually married). This brief appearance, as well as most of the second episode, is a truncated version of the third arc of the Kenshin manga. In that, Enishi and a gang of fighters seeking revenge on Hitokiri Battousai set out to systematically destroy everything in Kenshin's life.

    • This whole ova episode is a group of memories that Karou is remembering. One of the memories is the infamous battle with Kenshin and Tomoe's younger brother, Enishi.
