In the anime, Saito has had very little interaction with Yukimura Chizuru until the second season. He was then training new Shinsengumi recruits as well as monitoring the Rasetsu Unit’s actions. Saito once told Chizuru that he thought being a bushi meant being an exceptional swordsman. Chizuru responded that Saito was a true samurai because he has honor.
Gotta love 無題。 for sharing this beautiful cosplay. I think this outfit was only for the calendar and figure, so not a lot of people might recognize it. Thanks to Lira for sending this in!
