So Shinsengumi are bad guys?
Something interesting. I believe it occurs before the storyline for Peacemaker Kurogane, but there was another branch? or something of Shinsengumi under another leader that was more bloody thirsty at killing people in the streets with not too much provocation. If I am not mistaken, the order was given by the emperor or some other lord for him to be "removed" from power.

Something to that effect. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.

I also heard something to that effect except some Lord issued the order to them.

The other branch and their leaders were supposedly so bad that they'd kill you if you didn't have proper identification with you if they stopped you in the streets.

Three Questions

I wonder if anyone knows the answer:

Does anyone know who that colorful guy with the effeminate voice and the tarot cards was?

And does anyone know the function/reason for those gorgeous little white puff balls on the shinsengumi uniforms?

Animesuki related: How do you guys do the special format to hide spoilers? I'm really trying to post carefully since I still don't know how...


Lastly, I absolutely agree that Saitoh was cool in this last episode....casual but really neat.

You use the spoiler tags:

[Spoiler ] Darth Vader is Luke's Father. [/Spoiler ]

without the spaces in the brackets though. It'll come out like this:

Okay, now you guys have seen what a silly person I am with such silly concepts and fantasies. And convoluted run on sentences maybe. Please try not to judge me too harshly....

I'll join the club. I like the series so far, but they could use more action and get the story going a bit. How many episodes is it? Uh anyway, I like all the characters so far. Tetsu is such a brat, that's what I love about him, and he's growing. He's interesting to watch.

Geishas

I was looking around and there is a rumor floating that Saya and that other girl were being trained as Geishas. (As well as some less savory comments about this)
Does anyone know exactly what Geisha's do?
All I know is that they *entertain* men, but how far persay?

yeah, despite all the funny moments in PMK, it's actually the most dreadful/depressing manga i've ever read, since they're twisting the plot a lot in the anime, i'm hoping that no one dies in the near future.... or at least not in such a traumatic setting.

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!
