    • TRIVIA (2)

      • This would-be hotshot swordsman claims to be so fast that he's known as "human electricity" (rendered by his VA in Japlish exactly that way, but in some translations given, less anachronistically, as "human lightning"). Not only is Seishirou not nearly fast enough to be called anything of the sort (in fear of Mugen he does admit he made it up himself), but, though it's not impossible, it's not too likely that he'd use this terminology. The word "electricity" was coined in England in 1600, but there was no electrical anything in Japan until long after that. (Electricity was first used in Japan on March 25, 1878 at the Institute of Technology in Toranomon, Tokyo when an arc lamp was switched on in commemoration of the opening of the Central Telegraph Office).

      • Mugen reveals his tanto (short sword) for the first time. It was concealed in opposite end of his scabbard.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • (After Mugen defeated Momoi's flunkies)
        Mugen: (Pissed off) I said you're wrong!
        Momoi Seishirou: (Pleading) Please wait. It's a lie! It's a lie. "Human electricity" was just a lie. I made it up on my own. Spare me!
        Mugen: This is no good.

      • (Mugen and Shouryuu are fighting)
        Shouryuu: Why do you fight me? Because I'm wanted?
        Mugen: That has nothing to do with it now. Right now, I'm having so much fun, I can't help it.
        Shouryuu: Me too. But I will bring this to an end soon.

      • (Flashback)
        Shouryuu: The samurai in this tranquil time, who have lived peacefully and have become cowards, I would like to teach them true martial arts. I would like to do something for this country that has rotted to the core.
        Zuikou: But Ukon...
        Shouryuu: I have thrown away that name. I am now Shouryuu.

      • Fuu: (Moaning) Ohh... I'm so hungry.
        Mugen: I'm tired of hearing that.
        Fuu: But... we haven't eaten anything since we left the checkpoint.
        Mugen: Go drink river water or something.

      • Jin: Remember, I'm the one who's going to kill you.
        Mugen: What are you, my wife?

      • Mugen: I'm heading out for a bit.

      • Mugen: Wow, you got it all wrong.
