I discussed this once with an official of the Japanese Chu Shogi Association, who wanted to revive the interest in Maka Dai Dai Shogi, and had written a manuscript defining the 'modern' rules. He insisted that it would be the last piece captured. And for a Lion Dog he insisted that jumping two squares out to capture something, and then retract one square to capture what you jumped over, was not a legal Lion-Dog move, but that you would always have to capture what is on the adjacent square in the outgoing leg if you wanted to finish there.

It didn't make much sense to me. I would also be happy if you were allowed to choose. Of course this is all highly theoretical; no one would allow both his most-valuable pieces to be in Lion or Lion-Dog range.
