Do you only complain about things or do you occasionally experience happiness?

This anti white bashing becomes boring.

But you can find plenty of things to criticize, even with the most authentic japan culture.

As an example, Nazi were very fond of feodal japan. Samourai were a great inspiration for the SS.

Modern Japan is still a very unapologetic racist country. It's hardly possible to become a japanese for a stranger, and traditional outcasts Burakunin , hinin are still dicriminated.

If you ever vist Japan, you could also visit the Mimizuka, or 'Nose Mounda' monument in Kyoto, dedicated to the sliced noses of killed Korean soldiers and civilian during Korean invasion. Nice.

This hottest Japanese chick in the village also happens to be the widow of the samurai he killed.

I'm watching this now (for the umpteenth time of course) and just realized how Holywood/ Bollywood cheesy this is.

Funny. Considering how liked it is in Japan.

Given his experience, he probably had more combat time than most of the Samurai of that age. He just needed to learn new weapons and tactics, all easily done for a trained and experienced cavalryman.

Fighters are fighters. Takes the same discipline to become a samurai as it does to become a green beret or navy seal

reply

No.

I suggest that you look up exactly what the word Samurai means and stands for.

reply

There were ashigaru and sohei on equal footing with the Samurai, in terms of combat skills. It was just a hereditary title, and many Samurai were simply bureaucrats.
