    Viewer Discretion: The following episode may confusion, uncomfort or weirdness. Whether people making the show were fired by this point or they lost a lot of money and time making this episode, one thing's for certain. This is an awkward-looking episode. Viewer discretion is advised.

    What you are about to watch is an
    OFF-MODEL EPISODE
    so basically everything Hypeathon said.

    Last time: And they laughed at Kikuchiyo. Maybe now they'll say nice things about him since he's...or is he?

    Yeah, the animation takes a serious dip here. What a sucky way to introduce another key character.

    Did the animation budget plummet?

    Previously on Samurai 7: The samurai are on the run from the law.

    The jig is up the news is out they've finally found me
    The renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty
    Never more to go astray
    This will be the end today of the wanted man


    Dang, I've gotta stop making so many song references. Let's see, there was also a train scene.

    I'm going off the rails on a crazy train.

    DAMMIT!

    Jeez, now I see what you guys were talking about. The animation budget must've run out for this episode. Well, still better than Naruto's infamous Pain episode.

    Trying to guess which anime is receiving higher priority over this episode (it's either Burst Angel or the Kaleido Star OAV).

    ...and there's the Steve McQueen of the group.

    Welcome to the Firefly House. Leave your worries, swords, and animation budget at the door.

    On another note, the guy with the 3 bits of hair sticking out is the voice of Chuck E. Cheese before the CGI one came along.

    I didn't know that. Running an inn suits him.

    He's in the opening credits. I'm sure he's fine.
    Oh, speak of the devil...

    Yeah. Duncan Brannan is his name I think? He also did Mr. 3 in One Piece.

    "My splashing days are over. I'll be right here for the rest of my life."
    The plot says otherwise.

    Of course. He needs to survive so he can die later at the end.

    ...Well, at least that's what happened to Kiku in the original Seven Samurai.

    Yessir, sloppiest art this side of Yoshihiro Togashi.

    I have no idea. All I knew was that there were some cases where there was weird animation according to Hope Chapman's review of the show. And this was one of them.

    You startled me nearly as much as the animation in this episode. :O
