Rurouni Kenshin Ep 23 The Wolf’s Fang – Was Saito Successful in Bringing out Hitokiri Battosai?An Episode-Wise Review *Spoilers*


Rurouni Kenshin Ep 23 perfectly summarizes the title The Wolf’s Fang. Saito wanted to bring the sleeping wolf back into action and to some extent he was successful. It would be better if I go straight into the episode-wise review portion.

So let us get going with-

Dressed up like a cop, Saito sneaks into the dojo and gives Kaoru and Yahiko the heads up about the danger heading Kenshin’s way. Kaoru, being a generous lady, offers him a safe spot to chill while they figure things out.

Akamatsu, thinking he’s got the upper hand, spills the beans to Kenshin about being a marked man with some special reason behind the threat. Surprise, surprise – Kenshin steps up and kicks his butt in a showdown.

Later, as Kenshin strolls home, Kaoru puts in front about the so-called “policeman” sent to keep him safe. Kenshin goes full-on confrontation mode, revealing Saito’s true identity and triggering an epic duel between them. Despite Kenshin taking a beating at first, things get really intense when he flips the switch and goes back to his ruthless Hitokiri Battosai mode, totally shocking Kaoru.

Watching these two warriors go at it with a “kill or be killed” vibe, Sanosuke figures out that only someone who knows their history can step in. Just when it’s about to hit the fan, Home Minister Okubo Toshimichi, an ex-Ishin Shishi, crashes the party, putting the brakes on their showdown.

Things I Liked From Rurouni Kenshin Ep 23

Intriguing Plot Developments: The story throws in some crazy surprises like Saito going undercover and spilling the beans about Kenshin being in the crosshairs. Then they go head-to-head in a duel. Man, those twists had me hooked, and I was legit freaking out about what was going down.

Character Dynamics: The way Kaoru, Yahiko, Kenshin, and Saito deal with each other really amps up the story. Kaoru’s kind move of giving refuge to Saito and the complicated past between Kenshin and Saito bring some real spice to the mix. It’s pretty intense, gotta say.

Suspense and Tension: The plot keeps you on the edge, especially when Kenshin gets banged up and switches to his hardcore Hitokiri Battosai mode out of nowhere. It’s like, “Whoa, didn’t see that coming!” The vibe gets really tense, and you can tell just by looking at Kenshin’s face that stuff’s about to go down. Saito’s all pumped, but Kaoru’s freaking out.

Action Sequences: The epic fight scenes and how the characters throw down really hypes up the excitement. The battle gets intense, especially with Kenshin pulling off his crazy transformation and the weapons clashing all over the place. I was on the edge of my seat, totally caught up in the thrilling vibes.

Character Revelation: Finding out Saito’s real deal and then watching Kenshin throw down with his old rival adds a whole new level of insanity to the story. I gotta say, that kind of character twist and revelation totally hooked me, and I bet it had the same effect on a bunch of us.

Introduction of New Characters: When Home Minister Okubo Toshimichi walks in, it adds an interesting twist to the story. He’s got some history with the Ishin Shishi, so it’s not just adding depth but also teasing more stuff to come. Pretty interesting, right?

Let’s just wait for the anticipated last episode coming out on the 15th of December 2023 for now.
