Added DiffLines:

* FakeKillScare: During Yanagisawa and Sano's raid of Edo castle, Marume is severely injured, but remains behind to hold off their enemies long enough for Sano to make his way to the palace. Marume goes down in the wave of fighters and disappears; Sano is upset at losing such a loyal man, but forces himself to continue on as the fate of Japan is at stake. After the climax, it is revealed that Marume was knocked unconscious in the fight, was found by Reiko, and sent to Lord Mori's estate to be tended to.


Added DiffLines:

* KilledOffscreen: Detective Fukida is killed by the massive earthquake that happens at the beginning of ''The Incense Game''.
