How might things have gone if Saitou, rather than Kenshin, had beaten some sense into kenkaya Zanza and become his guiding force? Part 1 in progress: The revolution in Zanza’s life leads him to join with government spies Saitou and Tokio to try to bring down the yakuza controlled by a corrupt politician. A tale of self-examination, love triangles, hidden feelings, intrigue, and death.
Orchard-hand Sano is pulled from his small-town life to assist royal knight Hajime in restoring the usurped throne to Kenshin, the rightful king, and the two of them may find a connection beyond only this quest.
After (what should have been) a pretty simple assignment takes an unexpected turn, an ambiguous couple in an unusual situation must work out how they got here and what to do next.
Sano and Katsu work through how they feel about some things, including Saitou, Megumi, and, most importantly, their own friendship.
Why did Saitou kiss Sano on their way into Shishio’s fortress? Can Sano figure it out now Saitou is dead?
An unusual situation pushes Sano to confess what he’s been holding back all this time, and Hajime must make a decision about Sano’s role in his life.
Before Sano confesses his love to Kenshin, he needs to get his attention and impress him, and therefore appeals to Saitou to teach him defense… but Saitou may teach him more than that.
A very important branch of scientific study. For Sano, anyway.
A brief look at how Sano and Hajime are doing a couple of months after Seeing Red.
Sano can usually deal with angry shades, but the one that’s currently haunting him is a little different. And though he and the exorcist he’s been referred to manage to solve the problem by the end of Spring Break, it’s a week that may lead to difficult choices.
Saitou and Sano have very influential women in their beds.
Kenshin and Sano were lovers before Saitou showed up… but Kenshin and Saitou liked each other long before that. One thing’s for certain, at least: Saitou and Sano hate each other. Right?
Unaware that its entire purpose is to get his attention, Saitou has become rather tired of Sano’s reckless behavior.
Sano isn’t sure why he goes to Saitou after a bad day.
It’s all right to be unskilled at romance.
