The Ribbon That Binds is the eleventh chapter of the Rurouni Kenshin manga.


The day following the incident at Tani's home, Kenshin goes by himself to the riverbank to avoid putting others in danger, as he has become Jin-e's target.

Learning this from Sano, Kaoru runs to Kenshin. She gives him her favorite indigo blue ribbon, telling him to come back to her once he has dealt with Jin-e. Right in front of Kenshin, she is then kidnapped by Jin-e, who flees in a boat. Kenshin yells his enemy's name in anger as Kaoru is taken away from him.
