Shogun and SD Level?

8 posts in this topic

Been watching the Series Shogun, half way thru I realized this was a remake from the series in the 80's, I can't remember if I watched it back then or not, but its a cool show..

Was curious what you all think the Samurai of that time period, what their SD level would be? As a Martial Artist myself, my impression of the Samurai is that they were more evolved than an avg Military sort of person today, they took their craft and skills to very high levels of proficiency and skill levels, and made it their life, via the honor they had for their skill and tribe they belonged too, almost like Klingons in Star Trek but more sophisticated and not so angry...

Anyhow just curios, in the show they seem sort of trapped by etiquette and societal levels of living, some are servants, some prostitutes, some have very specific roles to play and the ones on top have all the freedoms and rights to do what they want, interesting show!!

Love that show waiting for each episode to come.They are stage blue mostly,stage red.But beside stages i got some nice wisdom regarding game which is my main focus.

Love the quote(paraphrasing)

"The more you climb the more the one experience his own loneliness"

Game translation:the more you know yourself the more you become your own centar and source of evrything,your source of wisdom your source of power.

Who teaches us whats real and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live and what we'll die to defend?Who chain us? And who holds the Key that can set us free? 

It's you.

You have all the weapons you need 

Now fight.

Wow that is pretty low down the scale, I thought that the Samurai were a bit more spiritually inclined than most military ppl, that thru the mastery of their many skill sets they achieved spiritual awakenings of sorts, but for sure the way the show depicts it they are stuck in tribal wars and traps, war lords and such honor based systems which may be a bit egoic in nature, maybe they had to be to deal with their times and challenges... Good show though, very entertaining and intense!!

@Ishanga That's how i see it they look to be spiritual,wise etc. But they are dominated by the hard discipline of their culture,see how they treat the english guy,how they dont accept nothing outside their bubble its all red-blue they gonna kill or kill themselves if you touch their ways.

I admire the code they worship but it would be more advanced if they all have their own code on top of some general code accepting of different ways then they would probably went to orange but im speculating here...

Only 10 episodes sucks tho...

Some would say blue. I myself don't pay much attention to that.

The good samurais lived according to powerful principles such as discipline, honor and integrity. They lived with the presence of death. There's much to learn from that.

A model is a model while living with integrity and the reality of death kicks your ass.

Loving the show so far.

Of course they will, it had great ratings and good reviews, I wonder if it will be a prequel or not, they have to have Anna in it, she is the show stopper lol...
