    a lot of stuff happens in this episode.It was worth it after watching all the episodes preceding this.It starts with Kambei leading a straight attack against the capital.This surprises Ukyo as he expects Kambei to have a plan.But he reveals that he doesn't.Now being mere machines,the Nobuseri can't stop them.Katsushiro meets up with heihachi who plan to blow up the main engine of the capital.Heihachi dies in the process.Then,the team are cornered by Tessai,who Kyuzo,appearing out of nowhere,kills.Katsushiro kills Kyuzo in the process of saving kambei from being killed by a gunman.He shoots the gunman with a gun unaware that Kyuzo is behind him and that the bullets are going through the gunman and hitting Kyuzo.It ends with Kambei asking who is going to cut off Ukyo's head?This episode starts strong and end strong.Two samurai die but everyone is given equal screen time.moreless
  • One of the best episodes of the series. It starts off strong, and ends strong.

    With only two episodes left, the series begins to go into overload. There is non-stop action and non-stop excitement. Throughout all of this, the feeling that makes this anime stand out doesn’t go away. It still feels very much like "Samurai 7". Even during convocations, there is something going on. It’s impossible to blink and not miss something important or pivotal!



    While watching this episode, you can’t help but think someone is going to die. And, indeed, each death is meaningful, and doesn’t feel rushed. Each of the samurai, and even some of the "bad guys" get their proper screen time and are not overlooked.



    This is one of the best episodes of the entire series, and is a must watch! It is action packed, pivotal, a tearjerker, and overall a very special and great episode.moreless
