me i have to say Okita Souji, Sakamoto Ryoma, Yukimura Sanada(he destroyed practically all of ieyasu's soldiers before he reached his main camp),Musashi Miyamoto, Jubei Yagyu, and Hideyoshi Toyotomi for warlords



I agree with Okita, Ryoma, and Sanada, but when were Musashi and Jubei warlords?

Jubei is used alot I see.

He is well known in anime, but he never was very recognized in history. Not a fraction of the amount of skill of Musashi, Ittosai, or Bokuden.


no everyone eccept hideyoshi are warriors. hideyoshi is the warlord

Yeah. I was just thrown off my how you worded that perhaps.

"Musashi Miyamoto, Jubei Yagyu, and Hideyoshi Toyotomi for warlords"

But yes, Hideyoshi became a formidable warlord in Nobunaga's tutelage.

However I wonder at times how Hideyoshi would fare without all the support gained from being Nobunaga's heir..

There are better tactical geniuses like Takeda Shingen who might rip him a new one. However this is only speculation; I wish I could set up such a scenario and watch it play out, as noone could know for sure without witnessing it. However logic would support a victory by Takeda forces. Then again, logic has little to do with the outcome of a battle.

well I guess video games can teach you history... I suggest you read further though. A lot of stuff in video games and movies are completely wrong. I'm pretty sure you already have.

Some video games can turn one on to history, yet they often hold little historic validity.
However, a reason to learn more is always a significant milestone on the journey to wisdom.

I wish you luck in your endeavors and hope that your quest to learn more will become all the more fruitful.

If I can ever share my humble experiences or knowledge with you (or anyone for that matter) do not hesitate. Knowledge is not something I have quested for so long to end up selfishly hoarding it. Knowledge is something to be shared lest it be lost.

Well, seeing as this is a Japanese media site, many of the users are bound to be Japanese. That being said, I'm sure many of you know a good deal about Japanese history. This is a thread to talk about the history of the place where anime comes from, Japan.

You can talk about any aspect of Japanese history here you find interesting. Who you might think is the strongest warlord or warrior in Japanese history for example. Who made the first katana, how sushi was first invented- the possibilities are endless.

So enjoy. I expect to learn a lot here.

I have no idea... i guess some guy in Japan a long time ago looked at seaweed and then looked at rice and got a crazy idea. I actually want someone to answer that question.

Sushi as in literally [vineger flavored rice] has been around for centuries.
However prepared sushi was invented during the early 1800's at the end of the Edo jidai.

Most people confuse Sushi[Vinegar flavored rice] with Sashimi[raw fish prepared with Sushi] and do not know that there are many different variations. My favorite kind of sushi that I made is a julienned carrot or red pepper in the center of a hosomaki or thin sushi roll. They taste great since I don't dig raw fish...
Furthermore the only fish I like are pan fried and spiced catfish or crappie which do not have a nasty "fishy" taste. Grilled shark stake is pretty good too.

If I thought I could get away with it, I would start a cooking thread. You all know I have a passion for martial arts, history, and fine literature, but I equally have a passion about music and food. I am an accomplished chef in traditional Cajun, Japanese, Italian, and French cuisine. Though I often make my own designed gourmet recipes.

you gotta be kidding me

Alright, I don’t mind cooking but I don’t know anything about it.

Sashimi huh... Not a big raw fish fan myself. I like California rolls which against popular belief were invented in Vancouver or Los Angeles (no one really knows for sure)

If fish is fresh, it'll never have that scent or taste. The tell of whether or not a salmon is fresh is its blood. If a salmons blood smells like watermelon, its fresh. This is not a joke. I worked in the seafood department at a grocery store once. Oddly enough I haven't really had a large variety of fish...mostly salmon.

I'm sure we could get away with a cooking thread...just need to put the right spin on it.

Really I didn't know that about the salmon. That's awesome.

I love seafood. Especially lobster, shrimp, and crab legs which are my favorite foods.
Butter, lemons, and spices and you have heaven in a shell!
