  • Seiku's son gets abducted..

    8.9
    So, Shishio is really ahead of the game, eh? In this episode, Kenshin and Misao are back in Kyoto and Kenshin meets Okina, a funny old dude. Afterwards, they go to Seiku, the famous swordsmithers son, but he says he doesn't make swords anymore, but there is one left. Kenshin doesn't want to pressure him into giving it to him, so he leaves it be. Then Chou, one of Shishio's group finds out about this and takes Seiku's son hostage to get the last sword. Kenshin comes to stop him, and that is the end of this episode. I'd say nothing real important happened here, but it staged a great fight for the next episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Seikuu: The samurai have thrown their swords away, so I threw away swordsmithing as well.

    • Misao: A swordsmith who focused on forging swords that could kill also made a reverse-blade sword that couldn't kill? That doesn't make any sense!
      Okina: If you were to examine a man's entire life, you would see that it's full of contradictions. Right, Mr. Himura?
      (Kenshin doesn't answer as they keep walking.)

    • (After Okina shares information about the makers of the reverse blade sword.)
      Kenshin: Thank you, but it will be dangerous for you to travel with me during broad daylight.
      Okina: Mr. Himura, your opponent is Shishio. He'll find us sooner or later, no matter what. Shall we go?
      Kenshin: Sir Okina!
      Okina: Mr. Himura, you'll be fighting Shishio and his men for the sake of the people of this country. You must stand firm and look forward at all times. That is the path a man of justice should take. (suddenly raises hand and flashes the victory sign) HOW WAS THAT? PRETTY GOOD , HUH? (cackles wildly)
      Misao: (to Kenshin) Gramps may be a little silly sometimes but don't let that fool you.

    • Okina: Everyone here was a part of the Oniwaban group. And each one of them is perfectly capable of taking care of defending herself or himself.
      Kenshin: But, sir.
      Okina: I won't take no for an answer, Mr. Himura. And Misao can take care of herself too since I'm the one who raised her.
      Kenshin: I guess you're the type that likes to talk and not listen.
      Okina: (laughs) That's most certainly true.

    • Little Boy: Shake hand, shake hand.
      (Kenshin smiles and shakes the boy's hand)

    • Little Boy: (Upon seeing Chou, points at his hair) Broom, broom!

  • NOTES (2)

    • The Sakasa Kuchu Noutou means Reverse In-Air Sword-Sheathe. Chou performs this with the Seiku's son, Iori, on the sheath, as a means to get Seiku to tell him the location of Shaku Arai's final masterpiece sword.

    • Katanagari, Chou's nickname, literally means Sword-Hunter. Chou likes to collect rare and strange swords.
