Later on, during the anime series, Shindō continued to frame the Sekihōtai, having murder committed in their name, in order to advance his own position in the government. However, he is stopped in his tracks by Sagara Sanosuke and Tsukioka Katsuhiro, former dedicated members of the Sekihōtai and close pupils of Sōzō, whom he is surprised by, since he believed that all the Sekihōtai were dead. Himura Kenshin watches on in satisfaction as the two pummel their way through the treacherous Shindō and his subordinates.
