If you are an avid Gaijin fan and also very well aware of the historical inaccuracies of some of the previous entries in this series, then this may be one of the best Gaijin and Japanese films of this type to date. All the major historical figures from Japan are represented, including various important Samurai clans and the Japanese Empire. The documentary is narrated by Toshio Mishima, who is now the president of the Japanese Embassy in London. He was a military man, but grew up in the Japanese countryside, so he has a great appreciation for the Japanese culture. His voice is slightly deeper and more resonant than in previous entries in the series, and his mannerisms are more samurai-like. He provides some insight into some of the more important historical figures, such as Tokugawa Ieyasu and the Song family, as well as the various other influential clans, and even the emperors. However, much of the narration is what is supposed to be "historical" and is not. I felt that this was a great shame, because as a documentary the information is provided in an accurate manner, but the narration is the only accurate narration, as it is the one that was written by Toshio Mishima himself. I feel that Toshio's narration is the most accurate and most thorough. I also found the information presented in this documentary more useful, as I am now more aware of the various historical issues and events that are important to the Gaijin. The information presented here is of paramount importance, as it is the information that is on the DVD version of this documentary that is most informative and helpful. I would definitely recommend this documentary, as it is definitely a must-see for anyone interested in the Gaijin and Japanese culture.
