I’m finishing up the sequel to Soda Pop Soldier. And yes, the enigmatic samurai Wu is back.  Up pops this Documentary rec on Netflix:

I’m really digging it and picking up some gems for future projects. For writers it’s got some excellent history, character development and background especially if you’re interested in the poetry behind the elite warrior archetype.

One of my favorite lines:

“The samurai dies as he lives… beautifully.”

Check it out and until then… pick up Soda Pop Soldier  and meet the gamer version of the noble warrior.
