  • When ever Meugun had sex... wow! Awesome, but the bad part is barley happened and didn't show anything. Great second episode with the characters and base.

    Well they are on their journey and problems start again. In the first episode Mugen cut off a mans hand and this man has come for his revenge so he gets a man that everyone calls a monster to kidnap Fuu in order to trap Mugen and he hires a man to kill Jin. It has unexpected twists which makes it worth watching. It shows that being nice goes a long way and can save your life in the end. You will have to watch it to find out what happens and you will want to its quite interestingmoreless
  • More trouble for the gang

    8.5
    After the opener, this episode... I would say it was just ok, not too bad, not too good, well, it was actually good, but it was just averaged kind-of. Last time, Mugen cut off a man's arm, now he decides to kidnap Fuu, along with a giant one. Mugen encounters them both, and the bad guys end up dead, but one of them, wasn't actually that kind of "bad."
  • Jin and Mugen have agreed to help out Fuu on her journey, but before they can even start, they're already facing little, or big, nuisances.

    8.5
    I liked this episode because it showed a softer side of Fuu. It turns out that the guy who got his arm cut off by Mugen from the previous episode wants revenge. He hires a big guy who's had his share of childhood bullying. Fuu is kidnapped and must be rescued by Jin and Mugen. While she's held hostage, Fuu gets close to the monstrous man who's captured her. In the end, he dies trying to protect Fuu. It was a sad episode, especially when Fuu asks why he protected her. He responds that she was the only one who ever treated him like a human being.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The two men knocked out by Oniwakamaru have scarves around their shoulders which are made up of the design of the American flag: one blue with white stars, the other with red and white stripes. No one in the Edo Period would be wearing scarves made to resemble the American flag.

    • No one actually says Jin's name in the whole episode.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Fuu: (Mugen and Jin are about to fight) Alright, enough you two! You two made me a promise. You haven't forgotten, have you? Until we find "the Samurai who smells of Sunflowers", you two are not allowed to kill each other!
      Mugen: Oh yeah, this smelly guy, I been meaning to ask ya about that.
      Fuu: Huh?
      Jin: Who is this "Samurai who smells of Sunflowers"?
      Mugen: And what the hell is a sunflower anyway?
      Jin: You don't know?
      Fuu: It's a flower!
      Mugen: So, what do they smell like?
      Jin: Do you have any other leads?
      Mugen: Like a picture or something?
      Jin: What makes you think he's around here?
      Fuu: Well, uh... wait a minute!
      (her stomach grumbles)
      Fuu: For now, let's just find something to eat, kay?

    • Inuyama: I expect that someday, somewhere you and I will meet again, in fact I'm sure we will.

    • Oniwakamaru: You weren't afraid of me. I'm not alone.

    • Inuyaka: (Discussing the fireflies while in the hot springs with Jin) However, they say that every once in a while a male will try to attract another male.
      Jin:...time to go.

    • Jin: The fact is, you aren't worth killing. Killing you is meaningless. All it would do is tarnish my sword.

    • (Fuu passed out after one drink and is asleep)
      Mugen: Sleeping so carelessly. I could do something to you so easily.

    • Fuu: No secret stash or anything, let's see it all. Ready, go! (They reveal all the money each of them has) No way, this is it?
      Mugen: (Glares at Jin) You're hiding something aren't you?
      Jin: So are you, what's with those acorns?
