Best Samurai Film Decapitation

There has been an ongoing discussion on the forum about the best decapitation in a Samurai film. A few that were mentioned were the decapitation of Bijomaru in "Azumi", the deleted scene in "The Last Samurai" where Ujio lops the head off of an offending villager. My personal favorite is a scene near the start of Mibu Gishiden (When the Last Sword is Drawn), in which the main character kills a Samurai who doens't have the "guts" to commit seppuku. I happen to have a clip right here:
