Aoshi Uses His Kaiten Kenbu Technique

The samurai goes toe-to-toe against the shinobi! For a plot that has been adapted into anime and live-action, the remake version of the climax of the Oniwabanshu arc is totally not disappointing. It even brings some kind of tension and epicness that had never been done before in the previous adaptations.

Aoshi Manages to Cut Down Kenshin

The graphic and animation quality improvement in the anime industry truly doubles up the fierce battle between the two men in this 2023 anime. Aoshi’s quick invisible moves and his disastrous attacks are genuinely felt threatening although his powers are quite generic in terms of characters in the action-shonen genre

Kenshin Fights Back and Hits Aoshi’s Neck

On the other hand, Kenshin’s toughness and intelligence to analyze his opponent’s speedy assaults are presented extremely well. His calmness and patience in countering and finally defeating Aoshi signify how seasoned he is as a swordsman in a battleground.

Aoshi Overwhelms Kenshin

Not only shows the badass and villainous side of Aoshi with tremendous fight sequences, but this episode also succeeds in bringing empathetic layers to his character as a responsible leader who suffers big disappointment from his former retainer and then tries to not do the same to his own men.

It’s wonderful to see such an antagonist character like Aoshi who is not fully a jerk or gangster with evil twisted beliefs in this series. Although he may have a sinister plan, he is designed as an honorable who respects the code and ethics in combat and a caring figure who takes responsibility to provide for his men and guide them.

Kanryu Unveils His Imported Gatling Gun to Eliminate Kenshin & Aoshi

The story succeeds in trolling the audience with the person in charge of the final antagonist role. While Aoshi is definitely the main threat in this episode or even this arc, in the end, the jackass title is given to none other than Kanryu. Cornered by despair and stress due to the disadvantageous situation, the shifty businessman decides to get rid of the threats by unleashing his secret weapon: a Gatling gun.

Aoshi’s Leg Gets Shot

As his maniac side gets wild, he shoots both of the warriors before finally having one of the bullets go through Aoshi’s leg. This danger would definitely take Aoshi’s life away, if only Shikijo did not wake up, move with Hannya and Sanosuke, see his weakened leader, and offer his sturdy body as a human shield.

Final Verdict

Shikijo Steps Up to Cover Aoshi with His Body

The duel is extremely amusing, Aoshi’s motives and backstories are touching, and Kanryu’s maniacal decision is annoying. So far, this episode has definitely been the most epic and thrilling one because of the great amount of tension, action, and emotion. Once again, LIDENFILMS proves that remaking the all-time classic series like Rurouni Kenshin is not a mistake since the studio has managed to always redeliver the told stories with its own style and touch.
