Character Description: Ryuzaburo Higashiyama

Ryuzaburo is an artist studying painting in Tokyo. He is staying at the same hotel with everyone. Kenshin lost their money and they ended up working to pay the bill.

When Misao and Kaoru are bringing him his meal, he "finds the answer to what true art really is" when he sees Kaoru. Later, he sketches Kaoru.

To "capture ultimate beauty", he asks Kaoru to be a model for a painting. When he draws her, and everyone is surprised at how good it looks, he says that it is merely an empty shell, and is not the real Miss Kaoru.

He falls in love with her, which clouds his vision. He can't see her "heart". So Sanosuke bets him that he can't take a shot on Kenshin before sunset. If he can, Sanosuke promised to make Kaoru like him. He spends the whole day trying to hit Kenshin with the sword. Later, Kaoru is bandaging Kenshin's sting, and Ryuzaburo understands that her heart is full of thoughts of Kenshin, and that's what causes her beauty.

He then knows what path to walk for his art.
