"Bull-shido", Way to Die #965, is the second death to be featured in "Death Takes A Vacation", which aired on November 14, 2011.
Kioshi was a depressed musician. One of his band mates named Tinaka died in a previous episode and ever since, he had been in a rut. One day, Kioshi came to the conclusion that his rock band sucked and he has no talent, so he decides to commit a form of samurai suicide called Seppuku with the help of his bandmates. First he recites a poem apologizing for his lack of talent and then he uses a Tanto to cut his insides wide open. He then dies of exsanguination. To finish the death, his band member takes a Katana and decapitates him.
”He clearly would've made a better samurai than rock star."
