I wouldn't be able to even make a site. Heh heh heh ;]

The Meiji Romantic story is about Hitokiri Battousai being a total ogre of a legend and this girl name Chizu is being
harassed by a samurai yakuza and Rurouni runs off with her to the village. She invites him to her house but her grandfather
disapproves so he goes to sleep under a bridge. Chizu comes with some food but is then kidnapped. Rurouni then goes to her
rescue and, without killing, brings all the 500 or whatever samurai yakuza down while the grandfather and police guy thought
he would satsujin* them all...afterwards Rurouni leaves with the promise to visit again, a ribbon in his hair and the grandfather
hoping he can recover from his total hate of samurai since one saved his granddaughter's life...and think he's over 30, tho
then he's only 27...
*satsujin - kill in a murderous way
