Kenshin must pursue Jine after he kidnapped Kaoru to "help" Kenshin revert to his former self; hitokiri Battousai. Will Kenshin be able to save Kaoru; will he revert to his former self? Or can he fight and defeat Jine without losing himself to his former self? More importantly, can Kenshin defeat Jine without breaking his self-imposed oath of never killing again?
Jine, wanting to fight and kill the old Battousai from the Bakumatsu period tries to push Kenshin even further by using one of his special attacks, shi no ippo, on Kaoru. Kenshin has but five minutes to defeat Jine. But more importantly, if the person on whom shi no ippo is used cannot defeat the attack on their own, the only way to keep that person from dying is for the attacker to be killed. At the very least, it seems to have had the desired effect of making Kenshin very angry and revert more to his old self. So, will Kenshin kill Jine to save Kaoru?
