  • Soujiro's past...

    This was a really good flashback episode for Soujiro, and how he met Shishio and learned his nindo. When Soujiro was a child he was abused by a somewhat wealthy family of people in the rice buisness and they made him do all the work, and blame him for messing up even when he did not. Then came Shishio and Soujiro saw him killing these police officers but Shishio says he won't kill Soujiro if he provides him shelter, bandages, and food. And that's what he does until the people who are abusing him come and find out. Then he kills them with his sword... it was a really emotional episode, and it pulled you in because a lot of people can understand Soujiro's pain with abusing a child and so forth... so Soujiro and Shishio aren't all that bad, there just fighting for what they think is right... great episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Kenshin: His waraji broke... maybe it wasn't a coincidence.

    • Shishio: (to Soujiro) Hmm...I see...They're like insistent rats, huh...After you get beaten like that, you still smile, huh?

    • Soujiro: Well..I..umm..Shishio san, you killed those police you a bad person?
      Shishio: The Meiji government are the bad ones. They used me as they saw fit, after that they tried to burn me to death.
      Soujiro: So you're a good person?
      Shishio: No, I'm a sadistic killer.

    • Soujiro: Using a sword to protect weak people who are just going to die anyway isn't right. That's what he says and what he does. And if there were any truth in that, then he definitely would have saved me back then.

    • (About Sojiro)
      Sanosuke: So you think that he sealed off his emotions? But why would he?
      Kenshin: I don't know the reason myself. It's just... that Sojiro... must not have had a happy life growing up, that I can say for certain. Death is the result of weakness. The strong are the only ones who survive. That's what Sojiro said before. To this day, he's never had anyone around to shed tears of caring for him. I'm certain that he hasn't. If he had been able to meet someone like that, I'm sure that he would have had a completely different life, that he would.

    • Soujiro: (To Kenshin) Why weren't you there to protect me?

    • Shishio: (To Soujirou) A false smile won't stop this world from beating you for pleasure.
