Love ( Koi?) is the eighth episode of the 2003 anime series Peacemaker Kurogane.


Susumu, ashamed to be a watcher, has his wounded shoulder treated by Ayumu. Tetsu, after being teased when breaking a long bamboo sword, accidentally throws the hilt of the sword at Kondō, however the latter lets him off easily and sends him to buy some brown sugar candy. When at the marketplace, Tetsu sees Saya with an outspoken girl named Hana. Tetsu and Saya pay their respects at the shrine, throwing coins at the saisen, while Hana watches in amazement. Later on, they attend a festival, where they decide to make Tetsu play the ring toss. Tetsu is pressured in either getting Saya a piglet plushie or Hana a red hairpin. Nevertheless, as he tosses a bunch of rings, he ends up winning a dagger. Hana shares with Tetsu that her father, being a ronin as an umbrella maker, stopped selling his swords after her mother had died from illness. After Hana retrieves some ginger ale, she runs into trouble with three men, but Sanosuke and Shinpachi comes to the rescue, as Tetsu and Saya view from the sidelines. Hana develops a crush on Sanosuke, and Tetsu gives away his dagger.
