Background Edit

Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin!Edit

Takeda, along with Todo Heisuke and Ito Kashitaro, defect from the Shinsengumi to form a rival clan. Todo Heisuke is actually a double-agent, and when Takeda learns of this, he kills him. Shinsengumi captain Sakamoto Ryoma tracks Takeda down to Abura Alley, Fushimi, and a boss fight ensues. After Ryoma kills Takeda, Okita Souji, Hijikata Toshizo, and Nagakura Shinpachi, also captains of the Shinsengumi, bring Todo's body to lie down next to Takeda's. Hijikata explains that Todo's last request was that they make it look like the two men were killed side-by-side by the Shinsengumi as revenge for their defection.
