PeaceMaker Kurogane Episode 18 [Rain]

Ayu before her makeover

Ayu after her makeover.


This particular episode caught my attention as it revealed the darker side of Yamazaki Ayumu, the resident cook of the Shinsengumi as well as the older of the Yamazaki spies. As her brother Susumu pretty much failed to gather information about the loyalists, Ayu decided it was time for her to resume her spy duties...

This episode shows how her absense affected the Shinsengumi, especially Tetsu. But that's not the point. The most[OMG!!!] part was when Ayu, while under the pretext of a barber,SEDUCES a loyalist in order to get info! Unfortunately, they were already aware that she was a Shinsengumi spy. So she slept with that #%&/@# loyalist for nothing!! After that, she was surrounded by loyalists waiting to capture her. Desperately, she made a futile attempt to assasinate Masaya. Needless to say, she was captured in the nude and tortured...

Ayu finally showed her worth as a spy but was brutally cut short. That was realistic as it shows the world doesn't follow the principle of "Good Will Always Triumph Over Evil."...I was kinda depressed after the episode ended with a man [Probably Masaya] running to the Shinsengumi mentioning about a body of a woman dumped in the streets...

Attempted Assasination In The Buff.
