The folks in Kamiya Dojo are in dire straights. Money has been extremely tight such that there is little to eat... indeed there is one fish to be shared between Sanosuke, Yahiko, and Kenshin... until Yahiko and Sano start fighting and Ayame and Suzume decide to feed the "leftover" food to a poor cat. After (barely) escaping from an irate Kaoru who was off for a few days practise, Kenshin, Yahiko and Sanou find an easy way to make some money. It appears that one of the local merchants have been having problems with pirates and is offering a fair amount for people to help defend his ships. So, naturally, Kenshin and party decide to board ship and make some money... only not all is as it seems. It appears that Kaoru had much the same idea and had lied to Kenshin and others to keep them from worrying for the time she would be aboard ship.
During a storm, the merchant's ship is attacked by the pirate Shura and party and the fight is joined. Kaoru, being ever headstrong insists on fighting the pirates with Kenshin and is injured in battle, so it's up to Kenshin to defend Kaoru. Only Shura notices Kenshin's excellent fighting ability and decides on a one on one battle...
