  • Mugan and Yatsuha

    This episode is sort of like a noir, the plot itself in the episode isn't really all that imporatant it's really the duo dynamic between both Mugan and the female ninja Yatsuha, and the sexual and slight romantic tention between the two. I thought both of them actually made a pritty good team as well as pair (we sort of if, Mugan would stop with certain bad habbits). Mugan was giving her a bit of grief with slight unsmooth inappoprite expressions, it's no wonder he doesn't have much of a love life. The Yatsuha character is a great new character shame the should couldn't of built more on her but anyway she sort of both reminded in fact looked like an older version of Fuu. I thought she was really funny and cool, I always liked it whenever she tricked Mugan with the oldest trick in the book whenever she wanted Mugan to keep his distance but doesn't.

    Yatsuha: "Oh, look a naked woman."
    Mugan: "Huh?!"
    (Turn around and then gets knocked out)

    But mainly it was when she was tricking him into doing certain tasks for her, basically the pavlov conditioning. That was also hilarious and resulted in one of the best fights ever when he littlerally beats the crap out of every baddie in the area, almost remonicent to that bone breaking fight in Tony Jaa's "The Protector".

    However though the ordeal you did sense within both of them the way they looked at one another despite how they antagonize one another theirs an attraction and they enjoy each others company. And in the end Mugan does get Yatsuha in the end, when they are seperated Yatsuha says she's found the person she's going to marry which is Mugan once they cross paths again. So I guess Mugan does have a love life in the end and has done something right by simply being himself.
  • Poor old Mugen...

    For all his swagger, he never really gets the girl. He still hasn't "scored" with the ladies while the more austere Jin has already fallen in love.
    This episode is funnier than it was intended just for Mugen's yell of "I want my nookie!"
    I wonder how many takes it took to get that line taped without Blum falling over laughing. It was probably very hard for him to deliver with a straight face. :-P

    This episode was also revealing as it showed a little more what life in a brothel was like. These women didn't get to go home when their shift was over. Until certain debts were paid off - debts usually incurred by male family members - they were virtual prisoners.
    Besides "Memoirs of a Geisha", I would recommend viewing some of the "Zatoichi" films of the 1960s for a closer look at the gritty reality.
