Added assassination scene thanks to youtube. Spoilers alert only as to how he got killed and not the fact he died which everybody knows. Also added torrent links.
I love the assassination scene but I hate the ending scene for Yataro. It should have been a more dignified way to show his regrets, his losing of his only friend, etc. That final part was too melodramatic. And a bit on what happens to everybody else would be great since although this is a story told by Yataro about Ryoma, others deserve a mention. I have a feeling it did not end with what actually happens after his death, as to the restoration of power, etc, probably just a mention. I find that wise considering what happened much much later in 20th century. I am still quite bitter how the story ended for Yataro. He deserves better. After all this was the man who founded Mitsubishi which still stands today. I just find his contribution to history as presented by Ryoma-Den especially the last episode negligible. The actor certainly deserves better. Masha was great in his death scene and I thought that scene was tastefully done although impliedly very very violent. But the sister and wife looked exceedingly calm considering how he actually died. In fact it was as if the story is of no more concern after his death but what he did and his subsequent death at such an age cemented the legend around him, in my opinion. So a bit of grieving would be realistic. I just find everything after his death was done in such a rush, it kills the momentum of the earlier scene.
Anyway, the assassination scene and Izumisano explaining in detail about that scene;
SPOILERS ALERT!On Nakaoka's "Ikan!", Imai Nobuo (the kabuki actor) rushes in and first horizontal cut across Ryoma. Then a vertical cut down on his head which wasn't shown clearly. Nakaoka shouts "Ryoma!" Ryoma counters the third but his sword is thrown off and he gets cut on the side of the body and then stabbed. Doesn't show where except Imai keeps pushing down a few times (or sideways ) Then sound of sword being pulled out and immediately stabbed back in for like 2 secs, then pulled out again. Which cause Ryoma to double up.SPOILERS ALERT!
