    Last time: The team's assembled: a benevolent Basque Grand for leader, a green-haired Koenma, a spear-wielding Chuck E. Cheese, RoboSabat, woodcutting Ginta, stoic Krillin, and whoever Gorobei's voice also played.

    This is why I like Kirara. Most girls in this show's setting would accept being a wife or a geisha or a member of Ukyo's harem without resistance, but not her. She wants to do stuff and go places. She doesn't fight, but she still wants to help.

    Hello love triangle.

    Kiku in repose.

    Nobuseri cannot make love.

    And we're OFF TO THE RACES!!

    I'd hate to be on the receiving end of that.

    Just when it looked like the farmers have become traitors, it is all part of the plan. And what happened to Kiku's head? He better be okay, or else you have a couple of angry little girls to answer to.

    You'll have to wait until next week to see what that ending's about.

    Trust me. It will be awesome.

    I thought that this was a pretty good episode. Kirara being so willing to help Katsushiro after more blood gets on his hands was kind of nice. Kiku helping out Rikichi with pointing out the obvious consequence of becoming a machine samurai, along with helping him to train, was nice too. The battle was really cool. It felt a bit short, but seeing them fire that giant wooden arrow and the villagers shooting their own arrows was great. When Rikichi started to beg for forgiveness, I knew that it was all a setup. There's no way that he'd want to beg them for their lives after everything they went through. Overall, it was a pretty good episode with a great battle scene. I'm eager to see how their plan unfolds in the next episode.

    Y'know their are some scenes that just mess with my head.

    On the one hand... "where did they find the tree to make that giant arrow." and "Man is it lucky that the enemy ship flew right into the path of the where the giant ballista was facing since their is no way to aim that thing." and "arrows > metal machine?"

    On the other hand... "WOOO, GIANT ARROW!"

    It was absurb, but i still enjoyed it for what it was

    Got around to watching this episode online. Gotta say, that was a pretty cool battle, despite it being just them shooting arrows at the bandits, and of course I giant friggin' tree arrow (though I concur with Monte that that seemed like a lot of trouble when they couldn't even aim the damn thing).

    As for the ending, I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that this is a ruse of some sort.

    Juding by the preview, looks like Kirara may be reduced to damsel-in-distress status (well, not that she hasn't been already).
