    Strange use of the words "free to live in peace"...

    Well, the spirit is willing, but...

    SHUT UP MANZO!

    Katsu...ever hear of something called subtlety?

    I'm so sorry, he's from Barcelona.

    Uhh...Kirara-chan...you're 16. He's in his forties.

    Well, of course Ukyo's going to destroy Kanna village. Why? For the lulz, I suppose.

    "It's the start of a new age!"

    Ah, don't they always say that about tyrannical dictators.

    Seriously, eww.

    Looks like they just got themselves a big damn gun.

    "I don't want Kiku to die with honor!"

    So you want him to die with dishonor?

    Work on your Gorobei impression, Kiku.

    Awwww, you made Komachi cry.

    Well, that gives him more incentive to fight at least.

    Reign: The Conqueror had one likeable character: The taco bell dog that spoke like Yoda.

    In Samurai 7, it's Kikuchi. This guy does so much yet he gets treated like crap.

    For instance, he's the only one NOT eating rice. The robot guy is a trendsetter.

    Kinda touching considering what Kiku told Rikichi before the nobuseri attempted to attack Kanna village the first time around.

    Jeez, now Komachi too! I've heard of being attracted to older men/women, but damn.

    So, fighting wars with just swords was a thing when Kambei and co. were younger? Exactly how fast did this giant robot industrial revolution come about?

    I don't remember any characters in Reign: The Conqueror. All I remember were the codpieces.

    Frankly, I thought you and Katsu looked cuter together.

    To be fair, there isn't a 30+ year gap between them. And heck, Komachi even said how gross it was in one of those clips in the beginning or end of the show where she talks about what happened last episode in her scroll journal.

    There isn't? How old is Kiku anyway?

    And at any rate, the younger one of the parties is, the easier it is to get creeped out by age difference.

    As did I. But then Katsu had to go and be a jerk. Thanks for that stupid change from the original movie, guys.

    And the drones have left the hive.

    Like a child at Christmas. An EVIL child.

    Oh dear. Pre-battle jitters.

    Well, in the immortal words of the great philosophers...
    IT'S GOIN' DOWN.

    And finally the big damn battle commences.

    And those robots still get chopped up like plywood.

    "I'M GONNA KICK SOME CAPITAL ASS!!!"

    Damn straight.

    Didn't Gorobei conclude that Kiku was supposedly 13 according to that family scroll he had?

    Oh no, I get it. Though it's nowhere near as bad as with some anime these days. It's not even anywhere near as bad as the whole...... *shudder* ugh, imouto trend.

    On another note, HELL YEAH! TIME TO KICK SOME CAPITAL ASS!! ONWAAAARRRRD!!

    If only Bleach made us this excited.

    That was a joke. It also indicated the falsehood of his family scroll (Kiku presenting a fake scroll was also in the movie).

    He certainly doesn't sound 13, in any case.
