  1. Wonder if Kaoru-dono knows she has green eyes… It’s commendable they’re trying to make her more likeable, though.

    1. They’ll never make me feel the romance ;) Ecchi and shoujo are like this, but samurai and historical should be a whole other thing.

      1. Actually, there are a lot of legends for the Samurai who fell in love and all the drama that comes from it, so it is not totally off. However, no Samurai is complete before being the best, so…they’re missing the point a bit…
