>>51653823I don't want to say that katanas are crap, but they're way too boring and their combat worth is overblown.Longswords are all over media either, but at least they're more fun to swing and they have so much variety in their design
>>51653823They look nice, cut well, but I look to Europe for my butchering tools of choice

>>51653870>>frequent pillages>>women and children slaughtered>>men raped and torturedThat stuff was more typical of the civil war era, hundreds of years before the katana in your picture
>>51653870>tokyo>hiroshima>nagasaki>london>dresden>berlin>warsaw>the entirety of north korea>millions of civilian non-combatants incinerated or crushed under rubble under the rain of thousands of bombersDon't let pop history fool you.

>>51654768It's a butter knifeI think what interests me most about Japan is how clean it is. A neat, orderly society with beautiful architecture and historical settings rife with drama. What's not to like?
>>51657437>what's not to likeuh everyone there was literally japanese

>>51654840Europe in the 17th century though...
>>51657599Japanese art turn of the century is unironically better than European art turn of the century. Except for Ingres.
>>51654311>27min of ShadPlease no... I already know it could be a 5min long video, what are the points brought forth exactly? Debunking is most pathetic sort of development anyway, this is like conspiracy theory in reverse, attacking strawmen most of the time instead of actually putting forth original stuff.Read any of thishttps://gunbai-militaryhistory.blogspot.com/ instead.
>>51654840>Japs started it>Japs started it>Japs started it>Keep calm and carry on>Nazis>Nazis>Genuine victims but they were avenged eventually>Commies>MacArthur should have been allowed to finish his work by nuking China. Most of the problems of the latter half of the 20th century could have been solved then and there. Truman was at the very least pink and FDR was a full blown commie.War is not conflict. War is conflict resolution.
