Making For The Ikedaya
More after Read More link.
Taken from discussion amongst fans and reposted here for understanding of the plot. Spoilers alert.
Choujiro wedding.Kobe naval school is finally open. Oryo thoughts on Ryoma. Ryoma now tried to talk with Kameyata. That guy (Hiroaka Yuta) who seems quite arrogant. Yataro is being really nice now. They let Izo talk to Takechi just to see what they'd say.Ryoma going to Ikedaya.The plan to burn down Kyo. massacare..... The shinsengumi doing.
And they continue to hunt down the joui fraction next week. More torture too. Otose appears and Ryoma calls her Mum the first time he sees her. Ryoma singing to the kids. Ryoma on the boatride with fireflies.
Question : did Kameyata seppuku himself? The answer posted as it was discussed. BY THE WAY MAJOR SPOILER AS THIS IS MEANT FOR EPISODE 24.
Kameyata committed seppuka, that's why when ryoma found him, he asked him why he need to do that. And you can see there's a piece of cloth covering the sword (anyway, if he is killed by Shinsengumi, there should not be that piece of cloth)
The story did not explain why he need to seppuku (or i have missed it?) but I just checked in wiki, it is said he managed to run away from Ikedaya, but he was badly injured. He went to Choushuuhan residence for help, they didn't let him in, that's why he seppuku outside their residence .
I noticed both of Kameyata's hands tight on the short blade, which is why I asked if he had committed seppuku. But the english link above says he was slain. According to NHK preview for next week, Kameyata was slain by the Shinsengumi.
there's also discussion in 2 channel about the reason why he need to seppuku and some replied that there is bit more explanation in the NHK book, and basically it's said it's because he felt helpless and hopeless by the massacre in Ikedaya and being rejected by Choushuuhan residence when he asked for help
And this one taken from the NHK official site, love the smile!

And the following taken from HK Fans Discussion Forums. It looks tiring! Poor Masha, he still has that energy to go all "fierce" like that?

Thanks to HK Fans Discussion Forums
You must wonder why the ratings is below 20%. Mashamasha of HK Discussion Fans Forums has an explanation ...
many said that this is the reason why its rating is not that high, though they agree it is a good drama (they all praise the production, the actors/actresses, just some comments on the script). People prefer watching lighter things at sunday night, especially it is their dinner time
