well that was intense as hell. WOW. you know, a friend of mine recommended this to me? and it ABSOLUTELY SERVED, HOLY CRAP. i haven't even seen the last samurai, probably
never will, and it's a genuine testament to the skill that went into this that those chapters made perfect sense to me anyway? katsura is such an interesting character, this whole thing is awesome. thanks for writing it!

Oh, wow. This is definitely one of the best Rurouni Kenshin fics. I love how you skip past all those potential in-battle moment that fill so many stories and instead focus on the characters, their perceptions and really, really get the atmosphere across. Some of these oneshots made significantly more shivers run down my spine than all those bloody-battle-after-murder-after-so-and-so-during-the-Bakumatsu descriptions that try to make a piece of literature into an anime.
Really, really well done. :) I hope to see more from you.

#5 I don't get it. Unless its not a part of the previous chapter I already read.

First of, I don't believe that Kenshin would have involve himself in politics like this and show himself in Tokyo wherein politicians are arguing among themselves. Second, I think Kenshin would have not allowed the gaijin to kill all those Samurais if he really was there watching him slaughter them one by one, because Kenshin, by this time, was saving lives already and it's against his vow to allow anyone to die in front of his eyes. I believe if he was there, he would have prevented the gaijin to kill them.

Hmm, make me think of the other reason for Okubo's assassination from the hands of Sojiro. Revenge from Shishio, since Okubo had been the one behind his elimination.

Ahh, so that is how Kenshin managed to stay hidden for ten long years, with of course Katsura's influence and now with the Emperor Meiji himself. Brilliant work!

I never thought that Kenshin was roaming all over Japan by this time Katsumoto is fighting with a gaijin, it made me wonder where Kenshin was at the exact time and what he was doing.

No! Where' s the next chapter? I want to know what happened!

Katsura (in canon, at least) has a blot/b to account for on the other side... How many dead in Kenshin's fifteenth year of life? A hundred? What do we call the people who use child soldiers today? Still, one of our dearest friends joined the military at fourteen (back in the 40's) by lying about his age. Did anyone then worry about his innocence?

You tease us with a short chapter Q_Q.

OMG you updated! *dances*
This is just as good as the previous ones, a wonderful look into what happened "behind the scenes".
Thank you! I'll be looking forward to the next update! :D
