Shogun Assassin does have its own charm. The soundtrack  by Mark Lindsay is amazing and I love the child like innocence  of Daigoro's voice over.. 

I like how he explains stuff rather than ripping the realism of the Hollywood scenes. Japanese are so perfectionists when it comes to budo.

if there isn't a gay porn spin on this thread, the og is truly is dead

I trust what that guy says. I thought this was going to be a commentary by some hema larper.

his subtle looks of bemusement are hillarious. it seemed like he was getting into the oren fight with beatrix in kill bill, then the screen shifts to the multi fight where she plucks a guy's eye out and you get a 'WTF' moment from him after where he's trying not to laugh. very subtle. same with the kenshin live action.

WTF fuck you and your ignorance, HEMA guys regularly own Kenjitsu guys in the Dojo. Every kenjitsu guy who has had ANY real sparring experience ends up a fencing/kenjitsu cross very quick. I would far more trust a good HEMA guy than a good Kenjitsu guy.There are some sparing aware TMA sword people, but rare as rocking horse shit.And who the fuck is that jap ? Anyone got a full contact, no stupid rules, sparing session ( 650g bokken ) on tape ? Fucking doubt it ( although prepared to eat words lol ) I want to see his form in combat berore I listen to a fucking word.
