Crimson (紅 Kurenai ) is the third episode of the 2003 anime series Peacemaker Kurogane.
Susumu, disguised as a geisha, finds out that Tetsu was following him around in the streets. Sanosuke and Shinpachi take on two ronin, while Tetsu and Okita rescue a mute girl held in captivity, however Okita is subsequently attacked by a third ronin. Hijikata, from the information gathered from Susumu, deduces the Chōshū clan is behind this matter. It is noticed that Okita had killed the third ronin in an act to protect Tetsu. Okita explains the code of the Shinsengumi, in which one must commit seppuku if the code is broken. Tetsu understands that he was assigned as a page in order to avoid having to live by this code.
