Jigzaw is a character featured in episodes 148-149. He kidnaps and locks up Hijikata Toushirou and Okita Sougo, in a attempt to draw out the "true human nature": survival of one's self in a twisted game of death. Hijikata and Sougo are chained to a metal pole by the neck, with only one key. Whichever one of them picks up the key first and unlocks the collar around his neck would be free; however, this would cause a detonator placed on the other person's collar to blow up. The time limit is two days, and at the end of the two days, the Shinsengumi headquarters would blow up. Despite his claims of being born from nothingness his video feeds are often interrupted by his mother and father,who were overheard calling to their son by the name 'Hiro-kun'.
