I was thinking about that panel with Goujun writing his memoirs or whatever they are, and the scar through his eye. Why does post-Apocalypse Goujun only have one eye? And then the obvious answer occurred to me. No, *not* 'somebody took it out with a sword.' Not at all. It's so that he can be a clever historical reference. If you have a dragon (I learned this from Shibata Ami) he must be a one-eyed dragon. What am I talking about? Google 'dokugan ryu' and you'll find out.
