mans not only got some precise and accurate hand control, he also got photographic memory

FireBlossom • 10 months ago

His art being photorealistic aka "depicting things as they are" suits his character so well, damn

Nan Demo K(Nai)ves • 10 months ago

Now that you mention that, it means he remember clearly the deaths of his father-in-law and wife-to-be.

vovan1 • 10 months ago

Shadow • 9 months ago

Well training his arms and being still is all he does after all

Nan Demo K(Nai)ves • 10 months ago

Damn that art, that's a crazy talent he possesses and it doesn't even sound like he's had practice it before, I wonder how Yuen will use this because I'm sure it'd be useful for identifying people.

Teppa really be shooting that harpoon blind only using Nio's kite as a guide.

I wish we had gotten to see Kurima's face in Souji's imagination, I can't picture him dressed as a courtesan with that stone cold face of his lol.

Archie Andrew's 1000 • 10 months ago

DesuYoda • 10 months ago

Samurai-sama can support himself with art, it seems...like the leader, in a way...I hope leader-sama isn't jealous...doesn't seem the type...

QuadL • 10 months ago

Shocked is more the word

DesuYoda • 10 months ago

Yes, I hope that's it. It was truly shocking... Like he just has this natural skill, suddenly...

taijitu • 10 months ago

leader doesn't seem too happy about it

DesuYoda • 10 months ago

Yeah, I wasn't sure what that look was supposed to be...

Reemus • 10 months ago

taijitu It's because he does not want to let Kurima go, but he is the only one with a potential to become a proper human being with a job and life going for him. The rest of them are rogues or true believers, like the Doc. Yuen's shock can be read as a realisation that whatever he does from now on with Kurima, it will mean curbing that potential of a "clean" life (a call-back to the conversation with Nio in the previous episode, when Nio almost pulled the string weapon at Yuen).

Nick Raph • 10 months ago

ikr, most people only care about thots with their massive racks or loli with lewd scenes.....everywhere i go, i always see such comments whenever the ep has any scene related to that....even when the story is super trashy, they still praise the show just because it showed tiddies or lewd loli

Reemus • 10 months ago

Check Japanese drama comedy Bushi-Stant Aisaka-kun. About a samurai artist in modern day Japan.

PaoPo • 10 months ago

Man. This show is so underrated.
A rare type that come one after a long time.

Talos darkbane • 10 months ago

I will admit I watch this show more for Raizo Kurima's story. I think the whole Yuuen Usui religious fanatic and killing with a sheet of gold lacquer on peoples faces is a little idiotic and getting redundant. I just can't believe his character. First off his method of killing is ridiculous. The other characters have legitimate if not exaggerated means of killing his just is completely laughable and every time I see I just shake my head and laugh at it. I was sort of hoping he would have other methods but I guess he is the one trick pony with the cult storyline.

QuadL • 10 months ago

Yeah, it is a little unbelievable as a consistent weapon of murder. He then has to expose himself to finish his neurosis. I just don't see why these victims keep clawing at their throats when it's their faces that are covered...

taijitu • 10 months ago

borrow a brain from someone or something...

Reemus • 10 months ago

This is all called a structured narrative.

1. Kurima is the main character and what happens to him the main question of this story. Every episode you can see others discuss his state - he is aloof, he is stoic, he has no desires. Tabula rasa. He also is in-between with this whole revenge scenario, he is not into it and does not want it neither as means nor as ends. He is just going through it because Yuen manipulated him to join...
2... and this is another point. Yuen's religious fanatism might be true, but in a different way. He is massively alluded to hate the Church and being at odds with everyone there. He tried to object to additional executions. While the "priest" is your average religious maniac (we will convert those barbarians to the love of God or we will slaughter them for not feeling it!), while Yuen keeps chanting the actual teachings of Christianity, rather than the distorted violent part of it. So his subplot is eliminating this seemingly deep network of Christian cultists, who sanction executions in the name of their deity.
3. And how Yuen operates puts him at odds with others - an intentional contrast. Everyone else is violent, they laugh at it, they enjoy their revenge job. They are brutal and leave a lot of traces of struggle, as well as disfigure their victims. Yuen is way above that - his golden piece is not only an elegant weapon, it can also be protected against. While he is praying for the victim (as opposed to others having fun during the job), the victim - under certain circumstances that we will see, eventually - can gracefully peel the paper off instead of struggling. What happens then? This is the mystery.

Overall, there is a lot of contrast and it is intended. The Yuen we see is the fake Yuen, there is a layer underneath him, and a story of how he came to be who he is. The rest of them will too have stories, but they will be lame and your basic tragic background when they suffered were victimised, so they victimise back. But Yuen has a goal and an ideology. And this sets him aside from everyone.

the Finance Guy • 10 months ago

Glad Nio didn't have Raizou work the red light district. That was scary just imagining it.

Nick Raph • 10 months ago

isnt it the drags are badly treated during this period of time? it's common thing to have them dressed up as females tho, but not for the actual hooker work, only for performance or something like that....
