Truth (誠 Makoto ) is the twenty-third episode of the 2003 anime series Peacemaker Kurogane.
As Susumu and Yugao end their battle, they reconcile and go their separate ways. Suzu begs for reinforcements from the clan to be called in, but he receives no answer at the front gate. Tetsu, due to having an advantage over Yoshida, who has sustained a wounded in his leg, cuts off his arm from his body. Tetsu is surprised to find out that Yoshida is not the one who murdered his parents two years back. As Yoshida grabs a sword fragment in his mouth to be aimed at Tetsu's throat, Okita severs his head from behind. Hijikata later realizes that Okita has been coughing up blood for many days, and Tetsu serves Okita some tea, much to Hijikata's appreciation. Suzu, upon returning to see that Tetsu has killed Yoshida, cradles the head that remains on the ground.
