Age of Samurai: Battle for Japan (2021 TV series on Netflix)

With six episodes that are 40-45 minutes each on this Netflix tv show in one season, we look at Japan during the Feudal Era. No demons were actually seen in this, but they have named two samurai’s those names. Oda Nobunaga as they called him ‘the demon king’ cause he was ruthless in his absolute. And Date Masamune, the ‘One Eyed Dragon of Oshū’ cause when he had an eye infection as an adult, he had to rip it out with a knife and his bare hands before the infection can get worse and kill him. He had to wear an eyepatch for the rest of his life. In addition, it can hurt beyond hell for him like for how victims get their eyeballs plucked out by Uma Thurman as Beatrix Kiddo in both “Kill Bill” movies.

Throughout the series, historians from both Japan and America have talked about what happened, while the story of the samurais was seen in flashback. At that time from the mid 1500’s to the early 1600’s, the Portuguese came by as they gave him firearms. Mostly musket rifles and those Tanegashimas.

In warfare, while the foot soldiers were reloading those musket rifles and Tanegashimas, they would use archers to cover fire. Cause it takes a long time to reload. Innocent lives, rather than being shot and killed, have been decapitated, performed suppuku, both of those two at the same time like in “The Last Samurai”, as well as being hung by the neck until death, and stabbed to the throat.

While Japan was dealing with civil war in their country, ruthless warlords with their armies were on a campaign to conquer both Korea and China. They conquered most of Korea until both China and Korea drove them back twice, and never conquered those two countries in Asia ever again. So for a success, 9.7 out of 10 stars is what I give.
