• Description : Japan's Sengoku jidai ('Warring States Period') was a time of crisis and upheaval, a chaotic epoch when the relatively low-born rural military class of 'bushi' (samurai warriors) succeeded in overthrowing their social superiors in the court throughout much of the country. Into this tumultuous age of constant warfare came three remarkable individuals: Oda Nobunaga (1534-1582), Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-1598), and Tokugawa Ieyasu (1543-1616). Each would play a unique role in the re-unification of the disparate, fragmented collection of warring provinces which constituted Japan in the sixteenth and early seventeenth-centuries. This new narrative history of the sengoku era draws together the epic strands of their three stories for the first time. It offers a coherent survey of the Azuchi-Momoyama Period (1568-1600) under both Nobunaga and Hideyoshi, followed by the founding years of the Tokugawa shogunate (1600-1616). Every pivotal battle fought by each of these three hegemons is explored in depth from Okehazama (1560) and Nagashino (1575) to Sekigahara (1600) and the Two Sieges of Osaka Castle (1614-15). In addition, the political and administrative underpinnings of their rule is also examined, as well as the marginal role played by western foreigners ('nanban') and the Christian religion in early modern Japanese society. In its scope, the story of Japan's three unifiers ('the Fool', 'the Monkey', and 'the Old Badger') is a sweeping saga encompassing acts of unimaginable cruelty as well as feats of great samurai heroism which were venerated and written about long into the peaceful Edo/Tokugawa period.

• Description : The dramatic arc of Saigo Takamori's life, from his humble origins as a lowly samurai, to national leadership, to his death as a rebel leader, has captivated generations of Japanese readers and now Americans as well - his life is the inspiration for a major Hollywood film, The Last Samurai, starring Tom Cruise and Ken Watanabe. In this vibrant new biography, Mark Ravina, professor of history and Director of East Asian Studies at Emory University, explores the facts behind Hollywood storytelling and Japanese legends, and explains the passion and poignancy of Saigo's life. Known both for his scholarly research and his appearances on The History Channel, Ravina recreates the world in which Saigo lived and died, the last days of the samurai. The Last Samurai traces Saigo's life from his early days as a tax clerk in far southwestern Japan, through his rise to national prominence as a fierce imperial loyalist. Saigo was twice exiled for his political activities -- sent to Japan's remote southwestern islands where he fully expected to die. But exile only increased his reputation for loyalty, and in 1864 he was brought back to the capital to help his lord fight for the restoration of the emperor. In 1868, Saigo commanded his lord's forces in the battles which toppled the shogunate and he became and leader in the emperor Meiji's new government. But Saigo found only anguish in national leadership. He understood the need for a modern conscript army but longed for the days of the traditional warrior. Saigo hoped to die in service to the emperor. In 1873, he sought appointment as envoy to Korea, where he planned to demand that the Korean king show deference to the Japanese emperor, drawing his sword, if necessary, top defend imperial honor. Denied this chance to show his courage and loyalty, he retreated to his homeland and spent his last years as a schoolteacher, training samurai boys in frugality, honesty, and courage. In 1876, when the government stripped samurai of their swords, Saigo's followers rose in rebellion and Saigo became their reluctant leader. His insurrection became the bloodiest war Japan had seen in centuries, killing over 12,000 men on both sides and nearly bankrupting the new imperial government. The imperial government denounced Saigo as a rebel and a traitor, but their propaganda could not overcome his fame and in 1889, twelve years after his death, the government relented, pardoned Saigo of all crimes, and posthumously restored him to imperial court rank. In THE LAST SAMURAI, Saigo is as compelling a character as Robert E. Lee was to Americans-a great and noble warrior who followed the dictates of honor and loyalty, even though it meant civil war in a country to which he'd devoted his life. Saigo's life is a fascinating look into Japanese feudal society and a history of a country as it struggled between its long traditions and the dictates of a modern future.

• Description : Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 35. Chapters: List of Samurai Warriors characters, Shinobido: Way of the Ninja, Onimusha: Warlords, Shogun: Total War, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes, Kessen III, Guwange, Nobunaga's Ambition, Red Ninja: End of Honor, Devil Kings, Sengoku Blade: Sengoku Ace Episode II, Sengoku Basara 2, Inindo: Way of the Ninja, Samurai Aces, Vasara, Ninja Commando, Sword of the Samurai, Getsu F ma Den, Shingen the Ruler, Takeda. Excerpt: This is a list of characters from the game Samurai Warriors. Other installments to the series have also added other characters to the playable cast. Most of them are based on historical figures. It should also be noted that characters' backstories and scenarios are not entirely faithful to historical events (Mori Ranmaru was born two years before Inabayama Castle fell, instead of defending it alongside Akechi Mitsuhide, Naoe Kanetsugu was an infant during the time of the fourth Battle of Kawanakajima although he is portrayed as Uesugi Kenshin's second-in command and Sanada Yukimura was a boy during the events of Nagashino). Many of these relationships are also greatly changed in Samurai Warriors 2 (the battle of Okehazama and the siege of Inabayama castle are omitted; Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Saika Magoichi are best of friends; Ranmaru and Mitsuhide are practically indifferent to one another, while Oda Nobunaga and Mitsuhide are particularly close). Take note that Wikipedia and the game list their personal names before their surnames-the opposite of how the Japanese referred to them during the Sengoku (Warring States) period. Unique NPCs: Nagamasa Azai, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Yoshimoto Imagawa, Ieyasu Tokugawa and Kennyo Honganji. Goemon Ishikawa is depicted in-game as a large and braggard man. He is a professional thief seeking to make his ultimate steal: the Plover Urn from Hideyoshi Toyotomi, and often speaks and ... [...] by Publisher : 'Books LLC, Wiki Series'

• Description : Abstract: Like the early warriors enshrined in the war tales (gunki monogatari), the daimyo warlords of the late Sengoku period (1463-1573) have become the subject of popular media, with their own histories influencing and influenced by the narrative of the media that feature them. This paper examines the relationship between history and popular media, looking at how the images of the daimyo, specifically Oda Nobunaga (1534-1582) and Date Masamune (1567-1636), are rendered in modern media, including manga, video games and television programs. It also traces the importance of the samurai warrior as a part of local history and identity in Japan as well as how international society has received these images of Japan's iconic warriors.

Chapters: Princess Mononoke, InuYasha, Seven Samurai, Ran, Hyakka Ry ran Samurai Girls, Jidaigeki, Ugetsu, Goemon, Y t den, Kagemusha, Sengoku Jieitai 1549, G.I. Samurai, Azumi 2: Death or Love, Karasu Tengu Kabuto, Sengoku Jieitai: Sekigahara no Tatakai, Shogun. Excerpt: Ran, "chaos" or "revolt") is a 1985 Japanese-French jidaigeki film written and directed by Akira Kurosawa. The film starred Tatsuya Nakadai as Hidetora Ichimonji, an aging Sengoku-era warlord who decides to abdicate as ruler in favor of his three sons. It also stars Mieko Harada as the wife of Ichimonji's eldest son. The story is based on legends of the daimyo M ri Motonari, as well as on the Shakespearean tragedy King Lear. Ran was Kurosawa's last epic. With a budget of $12 million, it was the most expensive Japanese film ever produced up to that time. After Ran, Kurosawa directed three other films before he died, but none on so large a scale. The film was hailed for its powerful images and use of color-costume designer Emi Wada won an Academy Award for Costume Design for her work on Ran. The distinctive Gustav Mahler-inspired film score, written by T ru Takemitsu, plays in isolation with ambient sound muted. According to Stephen Prince, Ran is "a relentless chronicle of base lust for power, betrayal of the father by his sons, and pervasive wars and murders that destroy all the main characters." It is a tale about the downfall of the once-powerful Ichimonji clan after its patriarch Hidetora decides to give control of his kingdom up to his three sons: Taro, Jiro, and Saburo. Taro, the eldest, will receive the prestigious First Castle and become leader of the Ichimonji clan, while Jiro and Saburo will be given the Second and Third Castles. Hidetora will remain the titular leader and retain the title of Great Lord. Jiro and Saburo are to support Taro, and Hid... [...] by Publisher : 'Books LLC, Wiki Series'
