Story Facts
Okita Sōji was the leader of the first squad of the Shinsengumi during the Bakumatsu. He suffered from tuberculosis, as seen when he fought Kenshin in a flashback as well as in Trust and Betrayal, though he was still able to hold his own with the Battōsai.

AppearanceEdit

Okita has a very youthful appearance, looking several years younger than his actual age. He has straight brown hair done in a short ponytail and large brown eyes. He wears a traditional Shinsengumi uniform.

PersonalityEdit

Okita is kind and respectful to both his fellow Shinsengumi members and his enemies alike. He is usually shown with a confident smile and takes his fights seriously, despite his child-like appearance. Although he respects all Shinsengumi leaders, he shows a particular respect to Saitō Hajime who was also considered on an equal level with him in terms of swordsmanship (both being leaders of the first and third squads of the Shinsengumi, respectively).

RelationshipsEdit

HistoryEdit

During the Bakumatsu, Okita faced Himura Kenshin shortly at the Battle of Toba-Fushimi. He was stopped by Saito Hajime who wanted to face Kenshin himself, despite wanting continue even though he was coughing up blood. Sometime later, he died due to tuberculosis.

Development and ReceptionEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Okita bears a striking resemblence to the Juppongatana's Seta Sojiro due to the fact that Sojiro was based on Okita.
  • Okita suffers tuberculosis during the Ikedaya Attack. But in both the Anime and OVA, he suffered the disease during the Battle of Toba Fushimi when he confronted Kenshin.
  • He was played by Tatsuya Fujiwara (who portrayed Shishio in the live action Rurouni Kenshin movies) in 2004 television series Shinsengumi!
