Episode Summary

EDIT
Chapter Seven
The group of Kochou attack and Youko kills them. Rakushun gets trampled by the villagers and knocked out during the action. The guards come running out and Youko thinks about killing Rakushun before she leaves so he won't turn her in.. But she runs away instead because she is afraid the guards will give her a hard time for being a kaikyaku. Back in the woods Auzaru appears and asks her why she didn't kill Rakushun.. She replies saying he was her friend. He puts a mask of Rakushun on and says he will turn her in. He tells her that she cares about nothing and she only cares about herself. She finally stands up to him and tells him that she will do whatever she wants and he doesn't control her. She is fed up with him and approaches him with her sword. She tells him she is glad she didn't kill Rakushun. He calls her a fool and she slashes him with the sword as he falls lifelessly into a bush.. She has finally freed herself from Azura. She goes back into town to find Rakushun but no one seems to know where he is. She runs into a group of traveling performers.. Who just happen to be the same people that her and Asano tried to rob for food a couple days ago. They invite her to come with them and they camp in the woods that night. She finds out that she must take a boat to get to En. They agree if she'll protect them on the way, that they'll take her to the dock. She agrees. Back in Kou, Sugimoto is still at her estate complaining about wanting to go back to King Kou's castle. Enki appears and asks her if she is Youko, he finds out she is the wrong person. He leaves but Sugimoto is even more enraged with Youko now. Meanwhile Youko learns from this traveling family that she can finally trust someone. She is finally at ease. That night she looks into her sword and sees reflections of her parents in her room. She wonders if they still love her. They finally arrive at the docks and Youko realizes there is guards everywhere looking for the missing kaikyaku...moreless

  • This episode makes me hate monkies that look like old men.

    After slaying all the konchou, Youko notices Rakushun buried unconscious beneath a large pile of human bodies. Suddenly, guards come rushing out of the town, and Youko carries thoughts of killing Rakushun before leaving to ensure that he won't rat--no pun intended--her out. But she doesn't. The monkey man appears again, and tries manipulating Youko's thoughts. But Youko, envisioning of poor ol' Rakushun lying on the ground, gives her a change of heart, which contributes to her strength to fight off the monkey man. She finally makes him go away. She tries going back to find Rakushun, but can't find him anywhere. Then, she runs into the same traveling performers she and Asano were going to rob earlier. She sticks with them for a while until she can get to En.



    What makes this episode as gold as it is its steady and stable pace. Things aren't dragged out too long to make it boring, and aren't rushed in order to fit a large amount of information in just twenty minutes. In fact, twenty minutes in this episode feels more like thirty to fourty minutes because of how much it included. I didn't even mention the situation when Sugimoto was living in angst in her new real estate, and that Enki, the boy from before, appears in front of her. The whole scene with Youko and the monkey man seems a little bit on the cliche side, but was still excellently executed.moreless
