* When Rin and Manji meet for the first time in ''Manga/BladeOfTheImmortal'', Rin attempts to convince Manji to become her bodyguard and help her get her revenge on the Itto-ryu, but Manji blows her off. After explaining how he can't just work for ''anyone'' who wants him to kill for them (his curse requires him to kill a thousand evil men to be [[WhoWantsToLiveForever freed from his immortality]] but whose judgement can he trust about who is "evil"?) he challenges her to prove to him that she's really ready to give up ''everything'' for her revenge. Misunderstanding him, she resignedly tells him he can do whatever he wants to her, but she's only just starting to undress when Manji [[WouldHitAGirl smacks her across the face]] in appalled anger, since Rin looks like his DeadLittleSister.
** Kind of played-with shortly afterwards, after Manji kills Kuroi Sabato, the man who actually cut down Rin's father- he agrees to bodyguard Rin for four years until [[SheIsAllGrownUp she's grown up and filled out properly]], then he'll sell her to a brothel for far more than he can get for her now. Rin is not amused. [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness This arrangement is pretty much never mentioned again.]]
