    Hmm....nah. Ukyo only wishes he was as cool as Scar, but you get the point.

    Last time: The clone who became a peasant. The peasant who became a magistrate. The magistrate who will screw an empire.

    Who says having bad teeth doesn't pay off?

    Ah, Katsu and Kiku! After last week's episode, I almost forgot this series was even about them.

    Uh, guess we'll just take your word on the billboard, Katsua and Kiku, seeing as how we don't speak a lick of Japanese.

    I'm surprised she hasn't miscarried by now.

    So now they kowtow to the pretty girls. Just like high school.

    Okay, I can't read that, but I think it says Kambei is about to be executed.

    So much for filial piety.

    Don't gloat over a dead man while he's still alive, dude.

    Yeah, don't cry kid, he's not going to die. There are still six episodes left and his character didn't die in the original movie, so the odds are in his favor.

    What is this? The Fort Knox of Samurai 7?

    "Who is that, Ukyo? He's the new emperor?"

    "That's it, it's the end of the world."

    LOL

    They're going to want their outfits back when you're done, Kiku, and I don't think one of them will like that one of them is stretched out.

    They don't even EAT IT? If Heihachi were here, he'd be appalled.

    In other words, the rice is just loose change, and the peasant villages are the couch cushions.

    And of course we have to wait 'til next week to see how this goes down.

    6 episodes left.

    My thoughts exactly.

    "I'm going to kill a thousand babies."

    HAIL THE NEW EMPEROR!

    Am I the only one disturbed that they are going to let a litle girl watch Kambei get his head chopped off, assuming that is part of his plan. I think it might be too grapic for her, heck it is too graphic for me.

    I thought that this was a pretty good episode. Ukyo is kind of creepy with how in control he acts and how he manipulates others with his new position, but that was obviously his plan from the start. I really liked Kiku's reactions to how they really use the rice since being a former farmer himself, he understands how wasteful that is after all of the work the farmers put into it. I did get a pretty good laugh from that extra saying it was the end of the world after Ukyo came out as the new emperor. It's too bad that they left the episode on such a cliffhanger since I wanted to see how Kambei was going to get out of this execution. Overall, it was a pretty engaging episode and I hope that next week's episode will be interesting to watch as well.

    Ukyo loves to ham things up. I guess its part of his character, but oh, how I want to slap him sometimes.

    Ukyo is one of those antagonistic characters who seems to always keep the viewer on his/her toes about whether his actions are really "good" or "evil". Really good episode, though I was completely disappointed of not seeing the result of the execution.
