I wonder if anyone reads history anymore. I am watching Heroes right now and wonder what they read to set up this Takezo Kensei story. First they make Takezo Kensei a white guy...I'm rolling my eyes at that thought already, then the set him up in Japan in 1671.

And it is feudal Japan. Complete with ronin samurai terrorizing Japan.

I certainly hope that Tokugawa Ietsuna does not catch wind of these situation, I don't think he would approve of a competing warlord trying to screw around with his rule. I also wondered how this "White Beard" was able to give away half of Japan to the white guy with a Japanese name.

I guess they probably meant to refer to the Sengoku period, but they were a century or two too far ahead in history...
