1878 (Meiji Era 11)

You're sure he's here?

We watched for 2 months.

There's no doubt.

Let's end it here.


Be careful.


Over here!

Who are you?! Halt!

Do you believe in Hell?

A world awash in blood

deserves the name Hell.

You're Shishio Makoto?

What if I am?

You know!


Don't move.

I love that sound!

You bastard!

How'd you think I knew

you were coming?

Ex-Shinsengumi, Saito Hajime.

(Shogun's police)

You traitor.

We survived the Bakumatsu


Does this world satisfy you?

Take off that uniform

and join us.

Turn the clock back

to those riotous days.

I take no-one's orders.


Very well.

Stop, please!


Man is born to carnage.

This world is Hell.



Kyoto is in chaos!

What are police doing?


They shouldn't add

to the trouble!


Who's that?

Here he comes!

Who are you?

- That scar! - Oro?

My name isn't worth stating.

I roam Kyoto, dreaming of

the Emperor's reign.

Assassin Bakkyusai.

I am he!

What nerve!

I'll cut you down!

Get him!

Why's Battosai the villain?

Not 'Battosai'- 'Bakkyusai'.


Hang in there!


You're an old legend,

Hitokiri Battosai.

[ Invigorate the Heart ]

Ah! Eiii!

Yahiko, step in!

Not so sharply.

Watch him! Harder!

Shout out!

I'm back.

We're back!

You're back.


Why won't you teach us?

You're why we came!


You're mistaken.

I'm a guest.

I'm no teacher.


The way of the sword changed.

This Dojo's motto is

"invigorate the heart."

The sword teaches that

in this new age.

If you want a fight,

Street-fightin' Sanosuke's your man!

Well? I don't charge much.

Well? Whadya say?

Wanna fight? Uh?

Why not show them stuff?

These days of peace don't need

my Hiten Mitsurugi style.



Is clinic business good?

Doctors don't talk of

"good business"!

I'll make dinner.

Wait. You have visitors.

You're Himura?

What do you wish?

I'm Superintendent Kawaji.

Someone wants to talk with you.

Come with me?

Hoi, oi! We're making dinner.

Who sent you in here?

Home Minister Okubo Toshimichi.

Who's that?

He's the Government top man.

Kenshin, don't go.

It's just trouble.


If he goes, I go.

I distrust your

'new Government'.

Fine. Come too.

I'm going, that I am.

[ Home Ministry ]

Excuse us.

It's been a while, Okubo-san.

Himura. We meet again.

You know him?

I'll get to the point.

What is it?

Shishio is plotting in Kyoto.

Shishio? Who's he?

- Another assassin. - What?

The successor to Hitokiri Battosai

(Manslayer-Master Swordsman).

When you laid down your sword

at the Battle of Toba-Fushimi,

he was fighting there.

He was our proteg assassin.

In speed, skills, and quick thinking,

he was your match.

But, unlike you,

he cared nothing for the weak,

or comrades.


It's the Emperor's banner!

We won!

Ruthless ambition.

In a wish to rule,

he'd trample on anyone.

That's Shishio.

We won!

Well done!

We won!

Thanks to you!

You did it!

Well done!

You bastards!


You bastards!

His brutal killing

would've discredited

Meiji Government.

We had to eliminate him.

You put down your sword,

and his body was burned.

He should've died,

but somehow...

He survived and hid in

the Kyoto underworld.

He took in a bunch

of bloodthirsty mercenaries

in his own army.

He has one aim...

to overthrow Meiji Restoration.


He has reason to hate.

Why drag Kenshin into it?

As it is, it will be

a catastrophe!

The only one we can turn to

is you.
