Added fansub/softsub timed by Luna
As reported by River of MashaPlus Info Forums from the general reaction of Japanese fans at 2ch.
According to 2ch, actually, they're more excited with the Season 3 trailer. Okay, the seppuku scene is done wellThat is not good. I suspect the ratings will be below 20% mark again. I can understand why. Maybe viewers just tired of the gloom and doom and politicking.
By the way some history on Takechi if you're interested, by Angelreii of MashaPlus Info Forums ...
Takechi seized control of his native domain of Tosa in 1862 and used it as a base from which to conduct a campaign of bloody assassinations in Kyoto. When the fall of his allies, the Choshu radicals, weakened his position, his enemies in Tosa took their revenge.
He was ordered first to return home, and then to commit seppuku. It is said that he refused to allow his second to deliver the death blow after disemboweling himself, and sliced his stomach open not one, but two more times. Takechi was over-ready to dish out the violence, but he wasn't afraid to take it himself when the time came. Okada Izo, Takechi's most effective assassin, was executed. Nakaoka Shintaro was murdered and Takasugi Shinsaku died of tuberculosis.

By River of MashaPlus Info Forums and summarised by me.
That despite stiff competition from festivals and especially the elections shown on TV hence the time of broadcast changed to 1 hour earlier, the show garnered a decent 17% which is still highest of the night and apparently much higher than rest of the programmes showing at same time slot.
But it makes me wonder; Japanese do follow the elections?!
