Episode Summary

EDIT
Chapter Nine
Suzu curses Asano for leaving Seishuu alone as the villagers help her carry him out of the road. Everyone denies seeing the incident leaving Suzu to wonder whats going on... A man named Sekki tells her not to cry about him for herself.. and she remembers how against Seishuu was against crying. Sekki brings her to an Inn for dinner. Sekki introduces himself and his brother Koushou. They tell her to forget about what happened because the man who ran Seishuu over is called Shoukou, and he has people in high places to help him so there is no pinning him. He also seems to run the town. In Kokei, Youko tells the same story and Shoukou's name gets brought up again. Youko is very curious about this evil man. She goes to Enho about the situation but he tells her there is no point and she can't sentence him at all due to lack of proof. At Shoukou's place, Asano shows him how his gun works. Shoukou wants Asano to make more for him, but Asano doesn't know how. It is then that Shoukou reveals to Asano about how he "hunts" people for fun and the heaven's have never punished him. Asano still thinks he is in some kind of game and goes to town to find Suzu. In Gantou, Rakushin is parting ways with Shoukei. He gives her some money and wishes her luck. She is on her way to Kei to find a job. Meanwhile, Keiki visits Youko to get her conscent on some paperwork. Suzu, thinking it's Queen Kei who allows Shoukou to act like this, leaves the village angered. Asano appears and tries to talk her out of it but she runs off determined. On his way back to Shoukou's, Asano sees Keiki. He tells Shoukou about how Keiki was the one who brought him to this world. Shoukou now knows that the Queen of Kei is somewhere in the town. Elsewhere, Suzu buys special weapons that can kill kings and queens...moreless

    The death of Sheishuu brings up many interesting developments. Asano was able to encounter Shoukou, the official of the town Shisui, who also killed Sheishuu. Suzu is feeling rather angsty over the loss, and blames it all on Shoukou and Queen Kei for not stopping Shoukou. Youko discovers the Shoukou has a horrible reputation of hunting down villages, but the leader of Wa province always defends him. Youko really wants to bring him under, but in her position, she has no conrete proof to follow through. Shoukei on the other hand, decides to head towards Shisui after hearing a rumour about free land and citizenship. Thanks to Rakushun, she's able to support herself. Suzu, unable to overcome the fire in her heart, purchases a weapon that is able to kill Sen-nin, along with an animal to mount upon.



    Extremely interesting development on all three parts. Something I expected from an epic novel series. There's this type of style that most epic novels follow. You can feel it in both Lord of the Rings and The Twelve Kingdoms. They're really not heavily focused on plot twists or unexpecting moments that'll make you gasp. They're more story driven, and they just get much more intriguing as the story rolls along--of course though, I'm only basing this off of the movies and anime. For a long time I've been curious on how they're going to unite the three woman into meeting each other. The story slowly connects itself, where destiny will play its part. The connections between all of the characters are just so amazing. And I especially love how the characters change in personality without feeling too forced. At first Shoukei is the one who was angsty towards Queen Kei, and Suzu was the one who admired her, but then it kind of switched places.moreless
