    Last time: Gorobei's final curtain call. :(

    And now, the Kanna Village Men's Farmer Choir.

    One you go robot, you never go back.

    And suddenly the animation fluctuates again.

    I............. could be wrong here, but this seems like anohter "questionably-animated" episode. Although if this is one, it should be the last one.

    Wha... did Kirara have 6 fingers that one cutscene or was that just me?

    I'm not doing my chart for a samurai montage.

    If they're gonna flash back to something, how about that epic fight from episode 14?

    "She obviously has a talent for choosing good men."
    So that's why she didn't choose you.

    Ukyo just screwed his own father. So much for filial piety.

    And now, the best of Kikuchiyo.

    It appears they have gotten their second wind.

    These caves are silent, still and deep
    But I have promises to keep
    and miles to go before I sleep.

    A breather episode, which was needed after the last episode. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    I thought that this was an okay episode. It was a decent flashback episode since it also made some bit of progression with the storyline and showed some of the aftermath of the last battle. There were a couple of scenes with that same poor animation, but luckily they didn't last as long as it did the last time they had the episode. It was a nice breather from all the action and should lead up to more with Kambei trying to follow up on their promise to rescue the prisoners. Overall, it was okay. I hope that next week's episode will be more interesting though.

    Not the most exciting episode, but we got some cool backstory. War is awful, but I can see why a samurai wouldn't want to stop. Fighting is all that a samurai knows how to do.
