|At a young age, Sano was a part of the Sekihoutai and idolized the Sekihoutai leader Sagara Soujo. (That was why Sano adopted the name Sagara.) Sagara was killed by a member of the Ishinshishi clan, so the Sekihoutai was disbanded.|
| Sano then became a 'kenkaya' - (a person who is paid to fight.) This was when he was called Zanza.
When travelling around Japan, he was paid to fight a man called Himura Kenshin. Before the fight, Sano did a little research on Kenshin and found out that he was part of the Ishinshishi clan. His anger towards he Ishinshishi gave Sano more reason to fight. Eventually, they did fight, but Sano lost. (Kenshin breaks Sano's Zanbatou sword in two.) Kenshin talks to Sano and then he realised it wasn't Kenshin that killed Sagara those many years ago. Kenshin persuades Sano to give up his obstinacy and to reform. Sano earns a great respect from Kenshin and they become good friends...
