After learning that Kanryū plans to kill Kaoru, Myojin Yahiko requests Kenshin's help to save her. Kenshin defeats Kanryū and stays in Kaoru's dojo with Yahiko for an unknown reason. Wishing revenge, Kanryū hires multiple fighters to defeat Kenshin. The first of them, Sagara Sanosuke, is defeated by Kenshin who convinces him to help taking care of Kaoru's dojo.
