Fireflies of Love/Ai no Hotaru
Ryoma heads for Ikedaya and witnesses the death of Kameyata who was slain by Shinsengumi, a group of young samurai formed by the Tokugawa shogunate to repress the anti-foreign movement in Kyoto. Ryoma tries to fight back against Shinsengumi, but is suppressed by Katsura who narrowly escapes death. Although Ryoma hides himself in Ryo's house, he is filled with remorse for not being able to save Kameyata. Meanwhile, Katsu is blamed for the fact that Kameyata belonged to his academy. Ryoma goes back to Kobe under Ryo's advice to accept Kameyata's death as he lived up to his belief until the end.

The following were posted in my posts of Episode 23 but looking at the episode summary, I believe it is more suited for this episode so I am reposting here.

Question : did Kameyata seppuku himself? The answer posted as it was discussed.
By Mashamasha

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 .

By Izumisano

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.

By Mashamasha

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

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!
