Episode Summary

EDIT
After defeating Henya, Kamatari, and I wambo running away, Misao and the other think that it is over. But then the Destruction Army, Saizuchi and Fuji appear. After Saizuchi spent several minutes explaining his and Shishio's twisted logics, Fuji is about to attack when Seijuro Hiko appears. Seijuro recognizes from Fuji's strike that he is a proud martial artist. He convinces him to strip off his armor. After he does, they fight shortly, and Seijuro uses the Kuzu Ryusen to finish him off.moreless

  • Hiko pwns everyone

    10
    The previous episode of Kenshin was good because it was nice to Karou,Yahiko, and Misao to fight in big battles. The episode starts with Fuji trashing Kyoto and when all hope is lost, Hiko comes to save the day. It was kind of odd to see Hiko talking to a 100-foot guy as a normal person but he is a human being just like everyone else. Fuji is a little far fetch, I don't see the idea of a giant living in Japan. He must be the Ginkotsu of Rurouni Kenshin. The battle between Hiko and Fuji begin and the battle ended with Hiko owning Fuji. If the Kuzu Ryu Sen is suppose to attack 9 diffent spots on body, I guess Hiko jumped to body part to body part in one second when he used it on Fuji.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Kenshin forgot to tell his Master where the Aoiya was (like he couldn't follow the swath of destruction and find it... -ed.).

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Oniwaban member: Why do old goats like that live so long? (referring to Saizsuchi)
      Okina: Because they know exactly where they're going when they die.

    • Yahiko: Even if a monster appears, even if the world comes to an end, I will keep my promise to Kenshin!

    • Seijuro: Fuji, there are some opponents you can't beat even if you use all your strength. One of those opponents is standing right in front of you.

    • Shisho: The strong survive, the weak die. That is the way I taught him. Can you find a way to defeat him Battousai?

    • Yahiko: You didn't have to arrive at the last minute just because it makes you look cool!
      Seijurou: Blame my idiot student. He forgot to give me directions.

  • NOTES (5)

    • The full title of this episode is The Giant Versus Superman: Like an Arrow Shot at a Time of Despair.

    • There is a particular reason Iwanbo up and runs away, as he is a spy for a future Kenshin opponent, Enishi Yukishiro. Iwanbo is, in fact, a finely constructed suit, controlled by a puppeteer. Unfortunately, as the manga had not resolved that storyline before the animators began producing season three, the writers created original stories that were of such low quality, interest in the series waned to nothing and the third and final arc in the manga was never animated.

    • Hiko Seijurou ends the assault on the Aoiya by defeating Fuji with the Kuzu Ryu Sen.

    • When in his armor and headgear, Fuji looks vaguely like EVA-01. Coincidence?

    • In the event of a double-cross on Shishio's part, Kenshin asked his master Hiko Seijurou to go to the Aoiya and protect Kaoru.
