why the fuck samurai using guns is not common knowledge? Look at the guy he looks badass with it so it's not like it would remove the cool factor and kids would stop jacking off to them. Fucking anime.

The Japanese selected their own Idealized version of themselves, and "they" settled on the image of the Katana toting muh honor samurai, for their contribution to history.

all warrior cultures selected either directly or indirectly, to identify their self idealized history

Its pretty easy.

This was because they all had their guns taken away by the gubment, and they wanted to make it clear it was not because they were pussies or anything.

But why aren't there guns in kurosawa's films?

Because Kurosawa was a master of being political without being too 'political'.

In the postwar era, gunbattles would have almost certainly rubbed audiences the wrong way.

Ronin films wouldn't have guns, guns weren't used for dueling, swords were a symbol of authority. I also think Ran had guns in it.

The samurais did use guns at one point in Seven Samurai. But the guns were stolen from the bandits, if I don't remember wrong.

Samurai culture was really solidified during the Tokugawa. Guns were in widespread use during Sengoku, but that included peasant armies as well.
>>
>>519270
Because Samurai rarely carried guns around them in off-duty functions.

Both Kagemusha and Ran featured guns extensively
