The Netflix documentary Age of Samurai: Battle for Japan, which was announced to be released in 2019, was forgotten after a long time. Although it was announced that it would be postponed due to various problems, our hope was almost lost. But finally, the Netflix documentary series, described as the Japanese Game of Thrones, met with the audience on February 24. And thus, from the moment it came out, it managed to be the subject of the agenda. The first remarkable notes were that the documentary was of high quality visually and historically.
In 2019, it was announced that the scenario would be shaped around the visuals of Feudal Japan. It was said that it would address many historical issues such as wars, massacres and so on and would be the focus of some individuals. Date Masamune, named one of the famous Japanese samurai with the nickname One-Eyed Dragon, appeared before Japanese history, culture and art fans with Netflix’s new documentary.

Where does his nickname come from: Due to the discomfort he experienced in his childhood, one of his eyes became inflamed and almost blind.
