The big elephant in the room is the finale, which doesn’t quite tidy up things the way a lot of people wanted. However, on the same token, Ogami has still essentially won the battle, even if he hasn’t cleared his name and redeemed his clan. After all, Retsudo Yagyu has basically had his entire clan slaughtered.


That's where it helps to read the Lone Wolf and Cub manga, which has a definite and rather poetic conclusion to the struggle between Itto and Retsudo. The scope of the books are far more epic than the film series could ever hope to be with only 5 movies, but it's worth the time and effort to borrow or buy them and read the series. You can appreciate how well the filmmakers adapted the manga, but also how much farther the books go. I have enjoyed your reviews on the series and am glad you appreciated them.
