Battle Array ( Jin?) is the twenty-first episode of the 2003 anime series Peacemaker Kurogane.


Tatsu tells Okita that Tetsu has been carrying emotional scars for two years, traumatized that he relived that moment when his parents were murdered by an unknown assailant in an inflamed building. After Hijikata learns from Masuya that the outlaw ronin were ordered to set the Imperial Palace on fire, he spares Masuya's life but leaves him tied up with rope. Suzu feels guilty for not killing Tetsu, but Yoshida suspends his duties as a page in response. The Shinsengumi makes plans to attack the Chōshū clan during a meeting in an inn at a nearby bridge. As Tatsu serves dinner to Yamanami, who is unable to join the battle due to sickness, Susumu tries to talk some sense into Tetsu, who has locked himself in the cabinet due to trauma. When Tatsu tries to stop Susumu, the latter tells him that he should be relieved for what Tetsu has been through.
