Why are you still here?

Go to the village and ask for help.

Don't tell me, all these graves...

Those bandits I killed...

Where did you take their bodies?

Why did you even bother to bury them?

Everyone here is the same

as the other. Dead.

Kid, what is your name?


Too soft for a Swordsman.

From now on, your name would be Kenshin.

And I will teach you my sword style.

This place...



Don't tell me, that this all what

the legendary Battousai can do?


So you've finally woken up.


Long time no see, My stupid apprentice.

Why am I here?

After the storm,

I went out to find some driftwood.

I didn't think I would find you.

Was there someone with me?

Only you and that weird sword.

What's wrong? Are you

expecting someone else?

Where did you find me?

I have to go back there!

Don't even bother.

You were out cold for three days.

Floating on sea for three days,

Nobody could have survived that.

Three days...

What's with that expression? You haven't

changed since the last time we met.

You and your habit of bearing

all the burdens of this country.

I had a dream.

I saw you in my dream.

I kept on digging graves.

Burying the dead.

Kept on digging...

Master... I have request.

Please teach me the final

techniques of Hiten Mitsurugi.

What did you say?

There is someone I have to stop.

Shishio Makoto followed my trail as an

assassin and planned to rule this country.

If he succeeds, people will suffer.

I am the only one who could stop Shishio!

And there is little time left.

I beg of you!


Let me hear your story then.

My stupid apprentice. What have you

been doing these past fifteen years?

Using that weird sword...

Show me what you can do with it.

Today was not bad.


What's wrong?

You guys don't hear that?

What is it?

That sound, don't you hear it?

What is that?

- We've got trouble!

- What's wrong?

There is a black ship!

What are you talking about?

What black ship?

Are you day-dreaming?

Check it for yourself!

The ship is like a monster!

What is that ship targetting?

Is there further movement?

- Hurry up and send soldiers and watch the surroundings.

- Yes sir!

So Shishio has arrived.

Finally, after twenty-five years,

fear is back to this country.

Ruling by fear,

is more effective than ruling by truth.


Start the preparations.


We will be attacking soon!

We will be attacking!

Stop it!

Now is not the time to drink.

Kenshin, Kaoru, Aren't

you worried for them?

- You think they're they gone?

- That can't be.

This is unforgivable!

Shinomori Aoshi.

That man.

Has become an enemy we have to kill!

What's wrong, Is that all you've got?

Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu

is an independent style.

Used to protect weak people.

And not for any other reasons.

But you forgot and instead,

used it for the Shogunate.

Was it your ego?

Or ambition?

None of those!

I have to learn it to wipe out

the sorrow in this country!

Who is he?

He said, few days ago he saw man with

scar on his cheek, lying on the beach.

Is that true?

How stubborn he is.

Where is that man?

Tell me!

Enough, Hoji.

That is a good thing.

It is even more interesting

than ruling this country.


, what is? What is it?

Do not show weakness!

- Lets go!

- Yes sir!

We have been waiting for you!

Home Affairs Minister "Ito Hirobumi",

It is an honor.


It tastes good.

Have you tried this English food?

Don't worry. It's not poisoned.

You also "served" during the Bakumatsu era,


How many you have killed?

For you to have the position like now,
