Welcome, all our readers and adherents. Netflix has come up with something for the Netizens and Samurai buffs. Netflix has revealed the first trailer of it’s Japanese warrior docu-drama series called Age of Samurai. Are you ready for some action and war?
The series is supposed to be an adaptation of Game of Thrones. The Japanese version looks promising from the trailer. The series is assumed to have six parts, produced by a Canadian company, Cream Production.
What more Booi told?
“It is like something out of a movie,” says showrunner Matt Booi. “If you wrote this down, no one would believe it. And if you saw it, I think you’d say, ‘Nah.’ But it happened.”
“It’s something that a lot of people outside Japan don’t know a lot about,” Booi says. “They know the iconic sort of figure of the Samurais, but a lot of the minutiae was missing. Netflix understood, and so did we, that this was a great story that is going to resonate with a lot of people.”
Several battle scenes are shot in shadowy darker tones, contrasted by brilliant splashes of digital blood. “We might’ve got a little carried away with that,” Booi confesses, “but it’s hard not to when you’re in that world.”
The series showcases the real history of Japan. It is not a ride to the fantasy world.
The series will represent 1551 with the death of feudal lord Oda Nobuhide and follows the rise of three of Japan’s most influential warriors: Nobuhide’s son, Oda Nobunaga (Masayoshi Haneda), Tokugawa Ieyasu (Hayate Masao), and Toyotomi Hideyoshi (Masami Kosaka). Japanese historians, as well as devoted enthusiasts of Samurai movies, will be aware of these three Samurai because of their impact on Japan, and their significant articulation in Japanese media, is tremendous.
Like Game of Thrones, the Sengoku period is an epic saga, full of tales of honour, ruthlessness, and betrayal. It is one of the most colourful eras of Japanese history.
