of the village decided that they should get rid of the temple so that the Meiji government
would give their village more funds. They spoke to Anji about that and he agreed to that
that as soon as he could find a new place to move in. Either the elders are deaf or just
plain stupid morons, they decided to burn the temple down along with the children. When
Anji came from his meditation he was shocked to see the temple burn down and he couldn't
save them because he was knocked down by the thugs. When he was able to get up, the temple
was already burned to ashes. He so furious that he trained 5 years and developed the

the village elders. Until such time he was recruited to be part of the Juppon Gatana.
