OK I was watching this film on the Criterion dvd with commentary. One thing struck me, why isn't the character of Scichiroji ( The one with the round face and belly ) introduced like all the other samurai?
There isn't a thing mentioned about on the commentary?
They look for all the other samurai, be he is just suddenly there?
Is this the friend that Kambei talks about?
I seen this quite a lot of times, but I never noticed that before?
He is also missing from the cover??

The two of them escaped the same battle together and met up in the village. Sine they are good friends, the one joined the other in his mission.
