A Woman Called Ryo/Ryo toyuu Onna
Ryoma and those samurai from Tosa attending Katsu's school receive an order from Yodo to return to Tosa but rebuff the order and once again become outlaws. Izo, who is wanted by officials, disappears while his beloved girlfriend Natsu asks Ryoma to find Izo. In search for Izo, Ryoma leaves for Kyoto where he meets a woman named Ryo at an inn. Learning Ryo's sisters have been abducted by gangsters, Ryoma gives Ryo the money his worried sister sent for Royma.

Taken from fans discussion and posted here for information purposes only. Spoilers alert.

Officers coming for Tosa Han. If they don't return, their status goes 'dappan.' The Tosa boys are wanted back but the other navy boys chased those people away. Letter from sister again.  Izo being a fugitive.  Chojiro cooking with girlfriend. Fighting in a bamboo forest. Ryoma is looking for Izo.They arrested some of the members & torturing them.Oryo! First meeting and they already hugging and arguing? The cool baddie shinsengumi chasing after Izo. Masha looking for Izo. Izo got caught. Now Oryo is having a talk with Ryoma. Ryoma is crying, Oryo facing his back. Next week: I see men in beach with only their fundoshi. There is also Izo that is going to be punished. Takechi getting tortured. The navy boys get to set foot on the ship.

Also known as the episode where Oryo appears or if Takechi has yet to seppuku, then perhaps this is the episode where he will. Just found out Takechi won't seppuku yet for this episode. I wonder is Ryo meaning Dragon? So we have Ryoma, as in Ryo and his future wife Ryo, so is this a tale of 2 dragons? Anyway looking at the pictures of Oryo as in the actress who plays her I kinda understand why Maki Yoko was chosen even if she doesn't look like the real Oryo, I feel she is even prettier than the real Oryo. She has this very independent look, this very strong independent spirit sort of look, a woman who can fend for herself. Interestingly I find her prettier in the film than during promotional times as you can see here even if they were filming the same look and scene back then.

I suppose the question is why Oryo looks more mature than Ryoma in the series. Thanks to Mashamasha of HK Fans Discussion Forums for the clarification. I personally think in the series itself Oryo doesn't look too mature from Ryoma. However I find the reason a bit suspect since isn't Sana as independent? Even in the series Kao is rather independent.

people said why ryoma chose Oryo as his wife among all girls because she is tough and independent, so she won't rely on him too much and he can concentrate on his big task.....and maybe it is the reason why Oryo in the drama needs to look more mature than ryoma

Some very nice pictures for this episode that I must post for you to see. All are thumbnails so do click for bigger picture.

I am not sure if the following are from this episode but I will repost them if they're not.. As you shall see, the reappearance of Ryoma's "mother" except as another character, the keeper of the inn where Ryoma and Oryo met, I think. Why the same actress is I read because the innkeeper is supposed to be a maternal figure for both characters so why not have someone who was Ryoma's mom to play this affectionate character. By the way you might be interested in some funny anecdotes about this actress, Kusakari Tamiyo (who is not much older than Masha himself by the way) in my ANN & TFM Snippets post (look for the date 08.05.2010). She was also the introducer/guest at the Kouhaku 2009, the elegant lady with long black hair was what I remember.

Sometimes I receive some media files or stuff about Masha that can't be publicly shared, but I can however share privately, such as concert clips, etc. I would love to share whatever I got with you, as a way of disseminating information of Masha to the masses. You probably have all that stuff if you're an experienced fan, but if you are new to Masha or does not know other experienced fans, you probably won't have most of what I can send to you. I don't send emails often, since frankly I don't get such stuff often but when I do, I will send the link if I am allowed to do so. So do join my contact list but be reminded, you're not allowed to repost/redistribute/reupload whatever I send you whether in whole or in part. Anyone interested, redirect them to my blog and ask them to join my contact list. But this is only open to those who will answer the questions in the form below accurately. If you're successful, you will receive quite a few emails since I group all links together into categorised documents. If you're not, I will email and inform why (probably answered some wrongly, such as title not in Romaji or wrong answer). Once you found the answer, please RESUBMIT THE FORM. If you did not receive my emails (whether the many materials or rejection email) within 3 days of joining, please do resend your request. Thanks for joining!
