1) Negative shot of Soujirou stabbing Okubo in the forehead cut.

2) Shot of carriage driver's blood spraying across the carriage window as he is killed cut.

3) Shot of Okubo's bloody corpse falling from the carriage when the assassin gang opens the door cut.

4) Bloodstains digitally removed from assassin gang's clothing as they agree to take credit for killing Okubo.

5) Shot of assassin gang's swords stabbing Okubo's corpse cut.

6) Blood digitally removed from the ground around Okubo's covered body.

It's becoming clear that the Kyoto Arc is going to be reflecting a mere shadow of its dark glory on Toonami. Three episodes into the arc and we've seen some brutal editing.
