  • Yet another great episode. That really isn't saying much since most of the episodes before were great.

    9.0
    Taiki is being reeled in by a man who believes that by capturing the kirin, he'll automatically become the ruler. Sanshi tries rescuing Taiki, but Shinkun appears in front of them and bans them from the mountains. After Taiki recovers, he encounters a kaikyaku girl. She's begging him to send her back to Japan. Sanshi slashes her, and she is also banned from the mountains. The nyokai alert Taiki of the choosing of the ruler. Lady Gyokuyou brings in Keiki because she believes Taiki can learn some stuff from him. But Keiki's cold hard attitude causes Taiki to cry instead. Keiki tries changing his ways, and the two become good friends after.



    Another great dramatic episode. Every episode just feels so perfect. Nothing is too exaggerated, and nothing is short of expectations. In addition, like I've praised countless times before, the pacing is just so precise. The thieves who tried kidnapping Taiki, and the girl that begged Taiki to send her back home, may seem like random scenarios, but they were small material that helped contribute to the quality of the episode.moreless
