From a filmmaking point of view, my favorite aspect was definitely the way that the film creates a highly subjective experience, usually from Gengobei's point of view.
The first one plays Gengobe with mixtures of desperation, unhinged anger, as well as frustration, while Sanjo perfectly plays the deceiving nature and greed of Koman, followed by her fear of being caught up with.
