No time difference


At Tessai’s attack on the group Koga Ninja no thrown shuriken can be seen.

The violation of Kagero after she was captured by Tessai has been eased.

42.68 sec

After Kagero woke up and tries to fight back Tessai grabs her neck an says (on the English soundtrack):

„Shut up and perhaps I’ll let you live just a little bit longer. Don't let it cross your mind that I wouldn't mind raping a dead girl.”

The subtitles to the Japanese soundtrack are a bit more restrained:

„Just be quiet and you'll live a little bit longer. Either way's fine by me. A dead girl might be an interesting lay.”

When she stops fighting back Tessai says: „That’s better.”


During the attack of Benisaro Jubei being hit by Dakuan’s poisoned throwing star is missing. So in the cut version it is not obvious where the shuriken comes from, at all.
