  • Mugen and Jin's gamble their swords on an eating contest, when they lose their swords to the winner, they try to bargain them back. The winner has a strange past and is being sought by his former buddies.

    This was interesting episode at first glance, I thought it be a standard story about the guys
    getting their swords back by going on a wild good chase. Instead they meet a gay character, whose been followed by some of his former associates.

    In a way the episode is a commentary on homosexuality and it's also a commentary on western vs. eastern culture. There’s also a brief history lesson again into Japan.

    Decent episode overall.
