RK end of Shishio Saga [episode 61]

Postby InSaNe KeYbLaDeR » Fri Jan 23, 2004 4:24 pm

How does Saitou survive? @_____@ It seems impossible. And wasn't that dude who was tearing the basement of the building apart suppose to die too? That Anji guy couldn't possibly go all the way over there, get the dude, then get all the way out in time. Did Anji help Saitou? I hate it when anime's don't tell us this kind of thing. Well, sense all of us really don't know((unless it explains it later in the series)) I guess I'm just asking for your theories. *shrugs*
SEKKUSU!!!!!!!!

They don't explain it later in the series, and if I recall correctly, Saito never even shows up again. My theory:

Wtf? Undying love for Sano?

The fact that Saitoh survives doesn't make any sense but ur gonna have to deal with it. Are you guys serious about Saitoh not being in Kenshin after the whole Shishio thing? That sux cause I think Saitoh is damn cool.

I don't recall seeing him again, but it's been about a year since I watched the series.

The thing is, though, after the end of that arc the anime completely deviates from the manga (or so I've heard--haven't read the manga yet). So although he doesn't show up any more in the anime, they could explain everything in the manga...

It's one of those things where super-badass characters are in situations where they couldn't possibly survive, but since they are so badass, you know they somehow live. Deus ex badass!
I have no idea how to use this new forum.

No, Saitou never does return in Rurouni Kenshin. In the manga, he does make a appearence in the Jinchu Arc and helps fight with Kenshin.

The Rule Of Genesis ( New rule alert!) - It dosent matter how something happened, just THAT it happened. (E.x - Neon Genesis Evangelion, The book of Genesis in the Bible)


The point wasnt how they survived, it was that they did survive. Thats it and thats all :O

To give an explanation for those who didnt understand or like my first one...


Anji - First fighter at the very entrance to the maze. He could of easily left after he departed with sano. (Remeber he was reborn into salvation and no longer wished to aid shishio)

Soujiro - Hes the freaking tenken man. In other words Sukachi(God u know thats spelled wrong) could of gotten him out of there in seconds. Not to mention he already told Yumi that he would be leaving before Kenshin even met up with Shishio.

Saito - A cunning cop who had the freaking blue print to the building. What do you think? :D

Guy chopping up the basement (Houji?) - I believe that was explained when the sword collector comes to speak with kenshin in the last episodes of the kyoto arc (Kyoto : The engraved memory, I believe). He actually wished to die and burn up with the place but didnt. :o


Hope that helped clear it up, not that how they escaped really mattered to begin with :)

not really :? ...not after the Kyoto Arc.

He appears in Trust and Betryal (way before the Kyoto Arc) as one of the Shinsengumi and so does Shishio.

In Refelctions, he makes a pathetic appearence but the scene he appears in when Kaoru enters the room and he's unsheaths his sword is a prelude to the Kyoto Arc so yes he does appear in the 2 oVA's (Samurai X) but not int he context of After the Kyoto Arc.

If I remember correctly, after the Kyoto Arc, in a episode. Chou is seen talking to a guy smoking a cigareete in the shadows. Chou says something like "Do you want them to know you're alive?"

The shadowed figure in Saitou's voice responds "They don't need tio know". So yes Saitou did survive the destruction of Shishio's "empire building" thing and we also see this in the manga when he helps the Kenshin-Gumi fight the Jinchu (Enishi's guys)

I meant the "Samurai X" movie. The one that happens after the Kyoto arc involving the young rebels.
