Fellow samurai, what do you think about what has been happening in our country?
Well, obviously I am loyal and will honor Japan until I die, as the code of boshido stresses me to do so, and proud of our accomplishments like the first ever novel, The Tale of Genji, but I am not a fan of many things.
I just don't understand what the shogun is so afraid of. We aren't under China's control yet, we don't even pay tribute!
Oh look, here comes the shogun now.
Hello samurai. I understand you are frustrated with the turmoil you have to fight for as a result of our attempts to assimilate with the all mighty China.
However, assimilation is necessary if we want to survive in the shadows of the Middle Kingdom. I am here to convince the three of you to convert to Buddhism or Neo-Buddhism. Please follow what I praise; it is our only chance of survival due to the high chance China will invade.
