The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

wow, how have I missed this? Definitely the next movie I watch at home with a couple bottles of Asahi. Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic choreography. I can't tell you how many times (as a young, and not-so-young man) I imagined myself moving to avoid attacks in just the same way.

The protagonist is only one man, but he has them outnumbered, doesn't he?

That's hilarious, I was just doing the same thing this morning not 20 minutes ago ... imagining just barely stepping out of the way of attacks.
