From the climax of the fight between Sanosuke and Anji. Great scene! Anji I think is one of the Juppongatana who absolutely has a great story behind him, easily rivaling Soujiro's story IMO. He is a monk gone bad because of the cruelty of the world. And because of that he turns to a vengeful monk, who asks retribution of the world by joining the Juppongatana. His backstory with the kids absolutely held me captive and his fight with Sano was one of the best! Sanosuke felt a sort of affinity towards the monk because he used to lead the same life of Anji, so in order to show Anji the wrongs of his ways Sano fights a battle he vowed never to lose. Anji in the end chooses to repent for his sins and accepts his punishment by the government. I love this guy so much! And didn't he look like such a doll when he was younger? ^__^
