Samurai project by Alex Bickel
This storyboard does not have a description.
It was a beautiful day outside the daimyo's castle. The samurai waited for something to happen.
Morning to all! Just sitting here, waiting for something to happen. My sword, SkullCrusher, is in the castle. Samurai's name their swords, you know. Why am I here? Oh, it's Bushido. Let me tell you.
Bushido means that I have to be loyal to the daimyo, the guy that owns this castle. Also, if I run from battle, I have to commit suicide, to restore my honor.
We are in the middle of the social ladder, higher than peasants and craftspeople but lower that a Shogun and a Daimyo.
I also have to face my danger and death without fear. I must also have frugality and martial arts mastery.
Next, the armor that we wear. helmets symbolized bravery, scare the enemy, and identify him. Arm guards were made from small iron plates. Neck guards were made with iron plates, coated with lacquer, and laced together with silk.
Metal plates protected the legs. When it rained, the cords on the armor soaked and made it heavier. Is it dark already? Guess I'd better get inside before it rains.
