Kenshiro and the others head back to Fudo's village, where he meets the other children Fudo is looking after. Fudo wants to take Ken to the Nanto Capital, but he falls down. He has many arrows in his back, which hit him during the fight with Hiruka. Meanwhile, Juuza heads back to Raoh alone on Kokuoh, having told his gang that they may no longer follow him. Juuza resumes fighting Raoh, and uses his most powerful technique -Gekiheki Haisui Shou (Strike-Wall Backwater Palm)- but Raoh survives, having hit pressure points on Juuza's arms before he used the move so it was not as powerful as it should have been.

Already injured, Juuza allows Raoh to hit him, but he survives and he and Raoh crash to the ground. Juuza tries to break one of Raoh's arms, but underestimates his opponent's power. Raoh gets up and as Juuza falls off him, he hits a pressure point on the back of his neck known as Kaimon Tenchou (Heaven's Gate Reveal). With Juuza now in tremendous pain, Raoh demands to know who the last General is.

Meanwhile, a recovered Fudo decides to tell Kenshiro who the last General is -it is the woman he loved, Yuria! At the capital, the General removes her helmet, revealing that it is indeed Yuria.

In the manga...

-Juuza does not have any bandages around his stomach in the manga.

-In the manga, the scene with Ken and the others arriving in Fudo's village is shown after Juuza uses his technique on Raoh, whilst it is the other way around in the anime.

-In the manga, Ken is wearing a cloak when he arrives in Fudo's village, whilst he isn't in the anime.

-In the manga, Ken finds out who the last General is before Raoh hits that pressure point on Juuza. In the anime, it is the other way around.


-The art in this episode occasionally looks a little rough, most notably on Raoh.


-Raoh is drawn way too tall a few times in this episode.
