  • Gorobei's death

    This is another great episode in this series. In the episode the Nobuseri is going to attack the Village of Kanna for a second time but this time they have far more powerful weapons than before. Now they are attacking with the giant Nobuseris and they also acquired grenades.

    Then the fighting started. This is were I had problems. Throughout the whole fighting sequences the characters did the exact same movements over and over again. This is the reason why I gave this a low.

    Since the fighting was so intense one of them got injured and the other one died. Heihachi got a hit by wood when a grenade exploded. Gorobei died because he was hit by the gun of the giant Nobuseri.

    The other reason why I gave a low score is because of the ending. Kambei just left. WTF.moreless

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Kirara: Great Kambei, wait!
      Elder: Let him go. He still has much to do. This battle may be won, but the war is not.

    • Kambei: Your life...I've stolen it.
      Gorobei: You've got to be kidding me.

    • Rikichi: Gorobei, you can't die like this.
      Gorobei: You'll have to forgive me Rikichi. It looks like I can't take you to the capital after all.

    • Kambei: What are you doing?
      Kyuzo: No one can kill you except for me.
      Kambei: He was never going to.

    • Benigumo: So we meet again, relic?
      Kambei: You're the only one left.
      Benigumo: I figured as much.
      Kambei: You've already lost. What reason do you have to continue attacking this village? Do you feel you have something left to prove? Is it because you're samurai?
      Benigumo: The samurai within me died ages ago.

    • Shichiroji: Kambei-sama, is that the Benigumo?
      Kambei: We'll find out soon enough.
      (Kyuzo appears)
      Shichiroji: Good timing.

    • (looking at Heihachi's wounds)
      Shichiroji: That looks pretty serious.
      Heihachi: Ah, nothing some rice won't cure. Gotta hate this rain though. It's making my moves sloppier than normal.
      Shichiroji: That'll happen.

    • Katsushiro: Look, Rikichi, you want to live to see your wife again, don't you? You should be more careful.

    • Katsushiro: I've checked every post around the village. There's a total of 6 Mimizuku.
      Kambei: And they're using bombs.
      Shichiroji: That means their upper shrine has ordered the use of forbidden weapons. The bandits are getting desperate. They want to wipe Kanna from the face of the planet.

    • Katsushiro: What happened?
      Gorobei: They bombed us.
      Katsushiro: The bandits still have bombs? That's forbidden. At the end of the great war, such weapons were banned.

    • Mosuke: Great samurai, I don't understand how you are able to see the bandits in all this rain.
      Heihachi: I don't have to see them, Mosuke. They're machine samurai. I can hear them from miles away.
